Body Gold (Delusion Remix)
When this stunning remix begins, you stop for a second…is this Adventure Club? Possibly Odesza?
It is the young and beyond impressive producer Delusion who continues to blow us away with his sultry remixes. His latest twist on Oh Wonder’s ‘Body Gold’ is everything we expect from him and then some. Adding some slow electronic melodies mixed with soft tone of the vocals, this remix allows us to get lost in the beat and the words. It is a song about finding that special someone, who makes you see things you have never seen before, you makes you feel bigger than you have ever felt, you allows you to wear the rose colored glasses and know it is all real. Delusion just adds to that feeling, he helps us embrace the love in this song and makes us want to find that person who will paint our body and mind with gold.
Jessie J Feat. 2 Chainz
Burnin' Up (Gazzo Remix)
This New Jersey native may have been all the way across the world, throwing down at the Goa Beach Grind in India, but he still made sure that the rest of us had some tasty tunes to boogie to. What a gentleman.
Coming off the “Burnin Up” Remixes EP (11/24 via Casablanca), Gazzo teams up with four other remixers to provide some different looks at the massive hit by Jessie J and 2 Chainz. With lyrics perfect for a club friendly an energetic house remix, he takes this tune from Top 40 to the dancefloor with an invigorating melody and driving bassline, As with any good remix, the tune comes back full circle to the original with a trap-style breakdown on the second drop, featuring 2 Chainz’s verse.
With Friday night peeking it’s head around the corner, we can make an educated guess that you’re about ready to cut loose after a long week. Press play now and get things going in style.
Let me just say, ‘pop’ music is making a comeback.
And I’m not talking about the days of boy bands and girls with pigtails, I’m talking about a new generation of artists who have discovered a new pop sound that is both unique and invigorating.
Today we get to premiere and debut one of these artists, a young woman fairly new to the music scene named Allyson Ezell. Hailing from the cornfields of Iowa originally, this talented artist moved to Paris to perfect her aerodynamic pop sound and will be releasing her debut album early 2015. ‘Landmine’, the name of her upcoming EP as well as the first single off of the album, is a mix of electronic synthesizers, defining percussion, and Ezell’s alluring vocals that act sometimes more like an instrument than her actual voice. Ezell speaks to the listeners directly, telling a story of war, a war of love and a love no more. She then carries into singing, describing her heart as a landmine and apologizing for any of the damage that may ensue. As she politely tells us, ‘I’m a landmine, watch your step.’ Ezell is a future voice of pop, she has figured out how to make a sound that is original and enticing. Keep your eyes out for this landmine, her music is sure to blow you away.
Suga Suga (Jerry Folk Remix)
Following the success of his “I Don’t Wanna Know” remix, Jerry Folk wows everyone once again with yet another instant classic. Putting his own twist to the classic R&B tune “Suga Suga”, the Norwegian producer showcases his talent through a variety of sweet maneuvers. Started off with a housey beat, the tune is quickly led by these catchy synths, followed by a sample from the original’s famous guitar riff that gets looped around. The bass drop of the track consists of an unexpected funky bassline which takes everyone by surprise. Jerry Folk is definitely showing us another side of his element with this one.
The talented musician always manages to pick out the most fitting classic tunes to rework. We are expecting big moves coming from Jerry Folk and we can’t wait to see what other tricks he got up his sleeves.
Mary J. Blige / Disclosure
Legendary pop diva Mary J. Blige and UK production duo Disclosure have quickly become the best of friends, collaborating on a number of tracks in 2014. The partnership blossomed earlier this year when the three teamed up for a a remix of “F For You” from the pair’s debut album, Settle, and later solidified when they came together again for “Right Now.” Co-written by Jimmy Napes, ”Follow” is now the third collab between the talented trio, and if their previous dalliances are any indication of what to expect, this one is bound to blow you away once more. Mary’s upcoming album, The London Sessions, is set to release next week on November 24th, and will also include features from Emeli Sandé, Naughty Boy, Sam Smith and Sam Romans. You can pre-order your copy on iTunes now.

CHIMES RMX ft Pusha T, Future, Travi$ Scott, French Montana
When Hudson Mohawke first signed to G.O.O.D. Music, we hoped that lineups for his productions and remixes would feature the A-listers. His newest EP release “Chimes” was even featured on an Ad for Apple so it’s safe to say, he is finally blowing up. Now, we get the “Chimes (Remix)” with Future on the hook, as well as support from Pusha-T, French Montana and Travi$ Scott. Look out for more massive collabs from the Hud Mo/TNGHT camp, it has only just begun. Cheers.
