Bakermat feat. Kiesza – Don’t Want You Back (Castelle Remix) [TMN Premiere]

To help end the week we have a very special premiere for you in the dojo. Castelle comes through with an official remix of “Don’t Want You Back” by Bakermat and Kiesza. Summer may only have less than a month left, but that doesn’t mean we have to start making the transition just yet.

Castelle gets down with a strong remix that is all fun, no filler. His minimal style let’s Kiesza’s vocal still shine, but his catchy melodies are the highlight of the incredible remix. It accompanies two other projects on the remix EP, but we’re going to go ahead and let you know this is our favorite of the bunch. If you would like to get a copy and check out the other tracks, check the digital store of your choice!

[Deep-House] Kiesza – Hideaway (Bixel Boys Remix)

Hideaway (Bixel Boys Remix)

L.A.’s Bixel Boys have been a group with whom we’ve witnessed basically a complete musical evolution; from their humble beginnings churning out a solid slate of groovy-deep remixes to their move into the self-appointed world of ‘Big Room Underground’ to legions of new fans. While we’ve certainly enjoyed seeing the duo hone in on their current EDM energy meets sleek indie-dance and deep-house production structures, their latest remix of Kiesza’s “Hideaway” was exactly what this writer has been wanting from the pair since having the pleasure to see them live a little over a year ago. The Bixel Boys’ remix leans much closer to pure house this time around, behind a classic piano sample that could’ve been pulled off of a Marshall Jefferson late 80’s track, and a wonderfully rhythmic, deep bass line. Not to mention, Kiesza’s vocals fit the house game like a sequined glove, weaving their way onto the tune with such an airy and soulful refrain on which the dance genre was built upon that one could easily be persuaded into thinking her incantations were written explicitly for this arrangement. We’ve been grooving this one out all morning, so you might be doing the same after giving this one a rinse. “Hideaway” is available for purchase via Lokal Legend, but if staying here a while and streaming above is your thing, we are totally cool with that.
