[Future] Caroline Koch – Timeless (Tchami Remix)

Caroline Koch
Timeless (Tchami Remix)

Fresh off tearing up his set at Ultra last week, Parisian producer Tchami returned yesterday with another remix and it’s, unsurprisingly, another instant hit for the quickly ascending talent.  This time around, Tchami takes on “Timeless,” Italian vocalist Caroline Koch‘s debut English single. Koch’s self-described “deep pop” vocals prove the ideal canvas for Tchami as he creates a dynamic build into a bass-driven future house cadence. All the moving parts in this one make for a listen equally enjoyable for relaxation and the dance floor. Tchami’s remix will be featured on Caroline Koch’s upcoming “Timeless” remix EP, due out April 13th on Dirty Soul Records, and comes as an instant download with the iTunes pre-order.

[Deep House] EDX – Want You

Want You (EXCLUSIVELY premiered by PETE TONG) #Radio1 #BBC

Having earned an impressive number of accolades and honors to his name, the Swiss-based producer has remained at the top of his game through nearly two decades of change around him, for good reason. EDX has mastered his craft, and though he has perfected his signature style of progressive house, the talented musician pushes the envelope and challenges himself to explore other genres within electronic music. One such example of his exploration into different sounds is his remix of “Uruguay,” by Sons of Maria and Nora en Pure, which has dominated the Beatport Deep House charts, even now, almost four months after its release. Tracks like “Cool You Off,” showed off a more chilled-out side of EDX’s brand of music, while “Remember House” adopted a deeper, groovier persona than his typical work.

His latest track, “Want You,” rides the line between his older work and his newer works. Without abandoning the progressive style that characterized his music of old, EDX simultaneously gives the tune new life with his dark undertones and a hypnotic vocal loop. “Want You” will be released on April 13th via HK Records, but enjoy the stream the track above!

[Electronic] SYRE – Burn ft. Kendra Dias

Burn (feat. Kendra Dias)

Ninjas, with Ultra Music Festival over and the brunt of the week still ahead of us, we’ve got the perfect cure to help you get out of those post-rave blues and get over the hump. This time, the cure comes from the 18-year-old, Vancouver native, Dmitriy Burenok, also known as SYRE, in the form of his latest original, “Burn.” One defining characteristic of SYRE’s music is his willingness to challenge himself and break through traditional genre boundaries and create a truly immersive musical experience that is fitting for any setting, and his latest offering does not fall short in that regard.

Featuring the lovely Kendra Dias on the vocals, “Burn” walks a fine line between house and nu-disco. The tune opens with an interesting sample of ping-pong balls before transitioning into undulated synth patterns and bouncing bass lines layered underneath Dias’ orchestral vocals.

“Burn” is out now via Next Wave Recordings, and is available as a free download, so snag it here!

XYLØ – America (Vasta Remix) [Chill]

America (Vasta Remix)

Miami based Dj/Producer Vasta just released a house rendition of indie pop newcomers XYLØ ‘s “America”, which has become one of the biggest tunes to hit the blogosphere. Not surprising, as the incredibly talent of Paige Duddy’s controlled and soothing vocals has not only captivated our attention but elevates this act even further.

Taking on the remix with big pianos, house drums, and trendy chops and cuts, Vasta dresses the original with a much lively yet light and playful electronic outfit, ready to be debuted during upcoming summer days. For now, there is really not a lot known about this newcomer Floridian DJ, but with an ear for executing layered vocals without overshadowing them with intrusive basslines, that is all the information we need for now.

We expecting a lot from XYLØ for 2015, but this is another solid lead remix to hold us over. Take a look and make sure you grab a free Download after you follow XYLØ and Vasta here:
