Skrillex – Reason (Tom Budin Remix)


When I see Skrillex in a title of a track, whether it is an original or a remix, I just prepare myself for a corpus amount of heavily layered music with an extremely aggressive wobbles as if to simulating two sweaty robots having hot and oily sex. And while a few months back that heavy sound was appealing, for me at least, it has run its course. Talented as any producer may be, the trends keep changing and it is really their adaptability to adapt and create new experiences that sets talented musicians apart from others.

This brings me to up and coming seventeen year old Austrian producer Tom Budin. Taking on one of Skrillex more controversial tracks, Tom injects it with so much electro funk that even the original dubstep foundation is molded into an easily digestible and amusing sound. From its melodic backdrops within its build ups to the evolving and textured bassline, this remix brings a breath of fresh air to the already saturated dubstep scene. And it is a FREE DOWNLOAD.

[Indie Pop] Still Corners – Heart of Fools

A few months ago we heard “Fireflies” from Tessa Murray & Greg Hughes, aka London’s pop duo Still Corners. The track was the A-side to their recently-released 7″. This week, we get to hear its companion piece, “Heart of Fools”. This B-side is much more toned down and almost lullaby-like, but it is just as enchanting and dreamy as their previous material. Murray’s vocals are especially worth noting; her phrases are like soft whispers that ever so soothingly caress the ear — it doesn’t even matter what she says, we’ll fall in love either way.
