Route 94- My Love (Bender Remix)
A proper PSA from Bender in regards to his newest remix:
“I am NOT responsible for any babies conceived while listening to this remix…Common side effects may include: increased libido, dampening of the nether regions, uncontrollable urges to dance naked, & lack of sexual judgement. *Men, if an erection lasts longer than 4 hours, dont worry, that’s normal…but you should probably still go see a doctor.*”
Now that we’ve got that disclaimer out of the way, we can now discuss your chances of becoming parents in the near future all due in part to the lovely, Bender. Just recently, the sax-addict producer released his newest remix of “My Love” by Route 94. After listening through this a few times, we contemplated buying stock in the leading condom company because we predict an increase in unplanned pregnancies.

Erin Fein & Ryne Estwing
It’s one thing to have a publisher that adores its artist’s music. It’s another thing to have a publisher that encourages rostermates to interact with each other. It’s pretty much unheard of for a publisher to send members from each band on its roster to a gorgeous setting for a week of inter-label songwriting. That is unless you’re Red Brick Songs.
Two years ago we found ourselves wildly enamored with the quality of music Red Brick put out with their Casablanca Sessions on Lake Couchiching. The second we went through their playlist, we knew that this little Canadian indie publisher had created something special.
Flash forward two years, and we’re now ready to start checking out the product of their latest songwriter’s retreat. Fortunately for us, we’re bringing you the very first release off of The Red Album. “Tunnels” was crafted by Erin Fein (Psychic Twin), Ryne Estwing (ON AN ON) and Nygel Asselin (producer of Half Moon Run), and takes listeners on a surreal voyage, carried through by alternating vocalists and stunning harmonies. Coupled with some booming percussion, a light yet playful bassline and some ethereal synth melodies, “Tunnels” has us lost in some delectable daydreams.
As the weeks go on, Red Brick Songs will be releasing tunes from this incredible retreat which brought fifteen songwriters from all over North America to Deerhurst Resort. Expect to hear some fantastic stuff from members of ON AN ON, Psychic Twin, JMR, Los Encantados, EXROYALE, Andy Shauf, STACEY, Library Voices, In-Flight Safety, Cuff The Duke and Oh Travioso
JPhelpz & Algoreythm
Whenever you see the words ‘FIREPOWER’ and ‘NEW RELEASE’ in the same sentence, you already know that you are about to get extremely mental. Datsik’s label has consistently been firing out some major heat from the arsenal of bassheads and JPhelpz is definitely one that has seen a substantial amount of growth in a short period of time. We just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to premiere his new original track, “Brains”, alongside other basshead, Algoreythm.
First and foremost – if you are wearing headphones, we warn you in advance that you might experience hearing loss, hallucinations, and/or loss of motor abilities. Right from the beginning, “Brains” immediately makes you feel as if you’re in an episode of “The Walking Dead”, but with more zombie action and less crying from Rick. The instense sensations that are exuded from this dark, swampy, bass-heavy track gives us more the reason to completely lose ourselves in the moment. JPhelpz has done an incredible job thus far and will only help bass music get the push it needs to get to the forefront of electronic music. “Brains” is a clear indication that he is re-inventing the way bass music is perceived…and we like it.
Prepare for one of the most absurd experiences you will ever have with a track and get ready for his upcoming EP, “Living Dead” out on FirePower Records on June 24th.
Still Life Remix
The music scene is alive and well in Detroit, and newcomer Jon Zott is continuing to display the electronic prowess that the Motor City has come to be known for.
The bar was already set high on one of our favorite tunes from Hollow & Akimbo, which is comprised of the insanely talented and multifaceted musician Jonathan Visger (Absofacto, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.), and his equally as impressive bandmates Brian Konicek and Mike Higgins.
Gone are the tribal percussion that provided the backbone for Visger’s silvery vocal. In their place is a booming kick and electronic spattering of clicks and space-age synths. The song takes on a whole new identity through Zott’s eyes, yet it gives a courteous tip of the cap to the original, connecting the listener to the original flawlessly, as any good remix should.
In this dancefloor pleaser, we see “Still Life” find it’s place in a whole new genre, re-imagined by an artist that we’re eager to hear more from. Make sure to follow him on Soundcloud so you can keep tabs on what’s coming up next for Jon Zott
Brace yourself for the feels, because this remix of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” will overload you with good vibes! As always, Lana Del Rey’s vocals are extraordinarily captivating, and will inspire you to get out of that chair and get to movin’. This is the first time I’ve heard of GRADES, but with Lana backing the track on her soundcloud, I’m sure it won’t be the last. I mean just stop what you’re doing and take a look at how many followers Lana Del Rey has… Yeah you’re not reading incorrectly, she has over four million followers. I’m pretty sure that is all an organic following too. With all that being said, the fact that Lana Del Rey, or her manager, reposts remixes of her tunes and even features them on her page deserves a huge round of applause! This deep house remix will make you want to move to the west coast. If you couldn’t tell by the crowd effects in this “West Coast” remix, everyone goes crazy for Lana Del Rey and you will too!

Middle Finger (Janpier X Waverokr Bootleg)
You may remember Janpier & Waverokr from when we covered their remix of “Sad Machine”, well they’re back with another amazing remix! This time they remix one of our favorite Dog Blood songs, “Middle Finger”. This remix of “Middle Finger” is a bit hard to categorize into one sub-genre of house music. It has a bit of jacking drum style, some deep bass and even some electro vibes. When we discovered them with their last remix, we immediately knew that these two can do serious justice to some of the largest songs out there!
