[Dubstep] Purity Ring – Belispeak (PatrickReza Remix)

Leave it to PatrickReza to once again pick the perfect songs to remix. We see many producers squander their opportunities trying convert a subtle and delicate track into the next club banger. And this is truly where PatrickReza excels, managing the original structure and sensibility of its predecessor but elevating the track with just enough layers of rapturous wobbles and melodies. His latest victim, the gorgeous single ‘Belispeak’ off the debut album of Canadian electronica duo Purity Ring, comes engorged with a bouncy structure that is bound to make any indie lover groove. Even if this perhaps is a departure from Reza’s past releases containing much darker themes, the new remodel still offers gritty and deep baselines among brighter dancier elements.

Two Door Cinema Club – Next Year (RAC Mix)

An absolutely infections track to start your week comes from none other than melodic master/producer RAC. Reworking ‘Next Year’, off Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club’s second studio album Beacon, RAC lets the vocals shine by removing much of the original instrumentation and sprinkling it with colorful and vivid pop layers of pure bliss. Out of all the RAC remixes we have posted, this is by far one of the best we have heard.

[Track was removed off RAC's Soundcloud. Will update once it is back up]

[Alternative Rock] The Strokes – All The Time

Along with the announcement of their new album Comedown MachineThe Strokes have dropped their second single, entitled “All the Time”.  In this song, The Strokes go back to their roots.   They leave behind the synths from “One Way Trigger“ in favor of the much more familiar electric guitar riffs they’ve been known for since the beginning.  After two singles, it sounds like the new album will be a good one.

Comedown Machine is due out on March 26, 2013 on RCA Records.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #26

The 26th edition of the Chill Dojo by all calculations marks exactly half a year since it first began. Since then, it’s definitely grown from being a humble collection of various mellow tunes to a mighty playlist with regular names, diverse genres and plenty of free downloads to add your collection. This week is a celebration of all those achievements, with 25 songs to vibe to, which is what it will always be about.

So let’s start this party with a track that has gained quite a bit of attention this week and is certainly well deserving of the prestigious track-of-the-week honours, ‘Skylarking’. Trance is a genre quite foreign to the Chill Dojo, but veteran artist BT has masterfully crafted something that can only be described as a musical experience, spanning over ten minutes of joyful bliss. If you want to lose yourself in sound today, this is the way to do it. Moving on now, and there are certain songs that will automatically be in strong contention for a dojo appearance no matter the countless remixes that have already featured (cough Goldroom’s ‘Fifteen’ cough). Well ‘Gold’ by Bondax is another title that holds that same prestige, and when you have a remix by none other than dojo favourite Moon Boots, you have yourself a surefire winner. Those smooth synths together with that infectious voice…so good. And speaking of Brits with addictive sounds, Kidnap kid is another name quickly making his mark on the dojo, pumping out some slick playful beats that will no doubt get you smiling and dancing along in little time. The next few in the list provide some stellar chill trap tunage, with remixes of big names and singles like Baby Bash’s RnB classic ‘Suga Suga’, Zedds’ ‘Clarity’, and ‘Stay’ by Rihanna. But as good as it is to find mellow takes on popular songs, it’s even more rewarding to discover hidden gems from artist you encounter for the first time, like this unique jam from UK producer Congi. Sometimes it only takes one song to fall in love with an artist’s sound, and this is definitely one to do it. There is plenty more that can be written about this week, but is best experienced via the play button than any written word.

With all that said, make sure to explore everything on offer and reap the rewards of the dojo’s journey so far. Peace out.

[TMN PREMIERE] Carousel – Stay Awake (DotEXE Remix)

Not too long ago we had the pleasure of talking with Carousel at their show in Denver. Amongst other things, we of course discussed our favorite song of theirs, “Stay Awake.” The electro-pop single off of their upcoming EP has quickly become a favorite here at TMN headquarters.

Chicago based producer DotEXE recently reached out to Carousel to put his own take on “Stay Awake.” Jackson’s dreamy vocals and the soft electronic undertones make a perfect backdrop for a dubstep remix, and that’s exactly what DotEXE has created. Elements of the original song shine though the build providing a melodic experience. But, DotEXE puts his signature style all over this remix with an absolutely devastating drop, and masterful vocal sampling.
