[House] No Doubt – Hella Good (Dr. Fresch Summer Revival Remix)

No Doubt
Hella Good (Dr. Fresch's Summer Revival Remix)

With temperatures rising stateside, our auditory focus always begins to shift upwards towards more radiant, sunlit sounds, especially in regards to dance music. So right when we were in need of some honey-coated shake inducing deep rhythms, L.A. house purveyor Dr. Fresch gifted us with his newest remix; this time of No Doubt’s 2001 pop smash “Hella Good”. While the original tune doesn’t exactly scream pool vibes or palm trees aside from lyrical content, Dr. Fresch has reinvigorated “Hella Good” and Gwen Stefani’s luscious, powerful vocals with signature highs and a rooted bass line; but taking this edit to even greater heights is an absurdly groovy alto-saxophone line written and performed by Sapphire Adizes which just oozes sexiness. We’ve been all ears to Dr. Fresch’s latest string of remixes, and today’s will certainly keep us in that piqued state of mind. Grab a Mai-Tai, slip on a little Summery dance attire and grab the free download to kick this Hump Day into gear.

[Remix] No Doubt – Settle Down (Major Lazer Remix)

When No Doubt announced their return to the studio earlier this year, fans were more than excited. After an 11-year hiatus, the classic group dropped their new single but didn’t maintain the same hype by the mediocrity of the reggae influenced “Settle Down”. Fortunately, during their break, mega-producer Diplo became a star in the music industry along with his Switch-collabo project, Major Lazer. Taking the long-awaited track and adding the proper heavy drums, some sirens, synthesized sounds and upping the tempo while still keeping Gwen Stefani’s iconic voice intact, Major Lazer did what it does best and accomplished making the remix better than the original. This dancehall track is great and returns the group to their genre-crossing routes that made their 2001 Rock Steady a classic.

No Doubt’s new album Push and Shove arrives September 25th via Interscope Records. Major Lazer’s Free the Universe drops November 6th.
