[Future/Indie Dance] Alicia Keys – You Don’t Know My Name (SMLE Remix)

Alicia Keys
You Dont Know My Name (SMLE Remix)

Miami is known as a hub for house music. It’s also the home of SMLE, an act who recently brought some solid sounds to “You Don’t Know My Name.” SMLE’s future style is presented with a coat of some indie dance vibes in this Music Ninja premiere.

SMLE brought the 2005 Grammy award winning record into the now for one of the freshest remixes of the year. A chilled out composition sends calming tones through the ear for the mind to absorb and bask in. Even though it’s festival season, there’s a need for tracks that are a little more on the cool side, and this remix is one that is going to be at the top of the pile. SMLE delivers the goods again, but is that really surprising? With Soundcloud already stocked with numerous epic flips by SMLE, we already know and love what SMLE has to offer.

[Electronic] Madeaux – One Time

One Time

All puns aside, it will only take one time listening to this track to fall in love with it. If you’re not familiar yet with Madeaux’s sound, this song does a pretty solid job of showcasing his talents. His range is eclectic at the very least, with influences ranging from garage to house to bass music. Throw in some soulful R&B samples and you’ve got yourself a Madeaux track, in this case “One Time”. The bass-bumping Los Angeles-based producer decides to take on Alicia Keys for his latest sampling choice and it’s a solid smash. He’s got an EP out very soon so be on the lookout for that in the future and if you’re still not sold on him as a producer, check out his other works.

[Chill] Atu – Pictures on Silence (EP)

Michigan-based, Malawi- native, Atu, represents a new class of producers creating minimal, lo-fi instrumentals utilizing distorted and manipulated R&B samples. The latest project from the 20-year old artist, Pictures on Silence, floats seamlessly from start to finish providing a unique, turned-down and inverted listening experience.Fans of 2000s R&B will vaguely recognize samples from artists such as Alicia Keys, Ray J and Boyz II Men among others through out Atu’s work. This collection elevates the listener to a tranquil state of suspension somewhere at the intersection of trippy, romantic and ambient.

In order to support his place of birth, Atu has released the album on Bandcamp with a starting price of $5, all of which is donated to support children in Malawi.
