[House] A Tribe Called Quest – Electric Relaxation (T4PES X Nick AM Edit)

ATCQ
Electric Relaxation (T4PES X Nick AM Edit)

Remixing A Tribe Called Quest is a tall order. You’ll need to bring your best, but as it turns out, Nick AM and T4PES did exactly that. These two managed to flip a hip-hop classic into a bounce-riddled house tune that would be difficult to distinguish from a KAYTRANADA edit. It feels like a completely natural progression, doesn’t overshadow the original, and maintains the funk that ATCQ has been priding themselves on for just about three decades now. Some may be hesitant about remixing staples such as this, but there’s no need to sweat because this duo simply smashed it. Enjoy a free download,¬†get grooving immediately, and as always, RIP Phife.

[Electronic] Ghost Loft – Seconds (Nick AM Remix)

Ghost Loft
Seconds (Nick AM Remix)

You may remember Nick AM from his previous original single we covered, Veronica, but if not, he’s got another solid remix out for us to enjoy. Shifting away from his usual deep house and techno techniques, Nick AM flips Ghost Loft into a spacey and chopped up club-influenced affair that thrives on using the spaces between the notes as much (if not more) than the notes themselves. There’s more going on here than a simple remix, and that’s certainly evident from the description of the tune on SoundCloud, which reads:

I heard Ghost Loft’s original out one night, and the lyrics and noir vibe painted a picture of a certain time in my life. I feel like music is the most powerful when it relates to us and “Seconds” reminded me that you can always find your way out of a dark place.

We felt that sentiment instantly. Grab yourself a free download and soak this one up when your feeling a little pensive.
