Chandelier (Addal Edit) ***FREE DOWNLOAD***
You’re not a real music blog until you post hundreds and hundred of Sia tracks, let’s keep that going tonight. There’s no denying that the Aussie vixen is having the best year of her career however it’s all too easy for the new listener to assume that Sia was born for the Top 40. If you are really trying to get into Sia; we urge you to dig into her earlier indie works, they are are sensational. That being said, “Chandelier” is the talk of the town and therefore has received its own fair share of remix treatment. After combing through the haystack, we have found this gem by Addal. Stepping outside of genre lines and instead going for the more emotional, cinematic approach, this remix by the Frenchman showcases Sia’s true vocal talent and changes the mood from Top 40 radio hit about partying to an intimate record about partying.
no type (clbts remix)
After taking the game by storm this summer with the release of their debut single “No Flex Zone,” Rae Sremmurd recently teamed up with Mike WiLL Made It to unleash a follow-up titled “No Type.” While the verdict is still out on whether the duo can replicate the success of their first hit, it seems as if at least one producer has taken notice of their latest effort. Given that remixes of “No Flex Zone” have become rampant over the past few months, we’re almost relieved that CLBTS decided to take a different approach with the group’s second single. By raising the pitch on the vocals and adding in some polished synths and dainty piano work, CLBTS manages to craft an ultimately dreamy soundscape that will certainly leave you feeling some type of way.
Download the track above, and be on the lookout for more from the mysterious producer in the near future.
Deck Chairs On The Moon (Elderbrook Remix)
Bipolar Sunshine has made a big splash in the blog world this year and that will continue to grow going forward. He’s on a completely different wavelength creatively, and his music will continue to be a refreshing take on pop music as the industry becomes more and more saturated. While there’s so many male vocalists on our airwaves recently, there’s only one Elderbrook. The UK producer is relatively unheard of in most circles, however Annie Mac got her hands on his rendition of Bipolar Sunshine’s “Deck Chairs On The Moon” and now the heads are starting to turn. It’s as beautiful as it is haunting, which is surprisingly a combination made in heaven. What he was able to accomplish on this remix is nothing short of incredible and you best believe we will keep serious tabs on him in the future.
LOST ON THE WAY HOME feat. SOLANGE (SHASH'U PWRFNK REMIX)
Funk powerhouse Chromeo is a popular target for remixes. This time around, Montreal DJ, producer and songwriter Shash’U did a rework of their song “Lost On The Way Home.” Having similar musical style, Shash’U juices up the funk in this tune even more and certainly does his fellow homies justice. The slapping bass drives the whole tune, and when it’s mixed in with David Macklovitch and Solange‘s voices, you can’t help but get up and dance your life away.
Give this gem a listen and be sure to check out Chromeo’s new album White Women!
One For Me (feat. Tinashe) ~ Lucas Remix
Ryan Hemsworth is one of the most dynamically talented producers in the industry today and he has the catalogue to prove it. Not only has he worked with everyone from Tinashe to The Underachievers, but his own personal discography is incredible as well. If you aren’t convinced this Canadian prodigy can produce any genre under the sun, I urge you to look into his remix EP, RYANPACK Vol 1. His collaboration with Tinashe on “One For Me” was one for the ages and something entirely incredible on its own merit. However, Seattleite Lucas is out to prove that you can take a Hemsworth and make it your own. The first thing you’ll notice is this edit is slowed down, both instrumentally and vocally. This sadboi anthem sounds a lot more instrumental than its predecessor, thanks to Lucas’ own piano work. You need this song in your life, we promise.
Dae Zhen first caught our attention earlier this year with the release of his single “94,” which showcased his prowess on the mic as both a talented wordsmith and gifted singer. Returning with the first offering since the release of his mixtape Women & Wordplay, the LA native demonstrates his versatility once again on the cheery new track, “Dipset.” Produced by Mike Derenzo, “Dipset” is a lighthearted, carefree number that’s guaranteed to lift anybody’s spirits. Though the song has a throwback sound that finds itself rooted in nostalgia, Dae Zhen incorporates enough modern hip-hop flair to keep it from feeling like it’s too stuck in the past. Though we’re still not sure what the track has to do with the famed Harlem collective, we’re willing to let that detail slide in exchange for a free download.
2 On X Rare Earth (Flight Mix)
Call it a remix, call it a mashup; we call it a smash hit. Dubbel Dutch is the Platform 9¾ of the Internet: You have to know exactly where to look to find what you really want. While other bloggers are running full speed into a wall, allow us to bring you one of the best kept secrets of the electronic music scene. Just when you thought you had enough “2 On” remixes, you are dead wrong. Dubbel Dutch released the “Rare Earth” instrumental about a year ago and it did well on its own; however there’s no denying it takes on a whole new sound when matched with the star power of Tinashe. The Brooklynite recently released a handful in this Hyperwine remix series; however this might be the best as it takes on so many different sounds in one, I can’t even think of a proper genre for this. If you like your Top 40 with a bit of flair, this is your song.
