Jose James - Vanguard (Flako Remix)
Jose James Vanguard (fLako Remix)
One of my favorite producers, fLako, known for his heavily jazz influenced sound, reworks singer Jose James’ new cut. Perfect for lazy afternoons and relaxing nights at home. Enjoy.
Ella Fitzgerald - Blue Skies (Maya Jane Coles Remix)
Ella Fitzgerald Blue Skies (Maya Jane Coles Remix)
This Ella Fitzgerald “Blue Skies” edit might be the best thing Maya Jane Coles has ever done. Out of this world.
Ciara Body Party (Jacques Greene Remix)
Serious Joy Orbison vibes. Jacques Greene’s ability to evolve as a producer is truly inspiring. His rework on Ciara’s ‘Body Party’ takes the cake.
Denzel Curry Threatz (Mickey Pearce Remix)
Catching Tumblr up on all the good tunes I’ve been writing about. Check it out…
Two opposing sides of the music pond collide on this out of left field remix that might be one of the best things I’ve heard this year. Ignore the fact it’s a shitty rip from London’s legendary pirate radio station, Rinse.fm’s June 13th show, and focus on the fact that the worlds of underground hip hop and underground bass music are coming together in an entirely new way. For years producers like London’s Oneman and LA’s Kingdom have been reworking rap’s brightest up-and-comers, but to hear a primarily dubstep and UK garage producer, Mickey Pearce from revered Swamp 81 imprint go in on such a hardcore rap sound is beyond refreshing.
Miami’s Raider Klan, an emerging force to be reckoned with, sees key member, rapper Denzel Curry’s ferocious single, “Threatz” featuring Klan members Yung Simmie and Robb Bank$, being chopped up, ripped open and recycled into a serious UK dubstep track that’s not afraid to let loose. Leaving the trappy hi-hats intact, Pearce brings a new level of erraticism through whirling, screeching pops and choice vocal snippets that only amp up the anthem worthy factor of “Threatz”. Both the original and this remix will be on heavy rotation for the rest of the year. If you know what’s up, be sure to follow suit.

Robots Don't Sleep - So Bad (Synkro Vocal Mix)
Robots Don’t Sleep So Bad (Synkro Vocal Mix)
I premiered this dope new Synkro edit on Yours Truly yesterday. Check it out.
Like How To Dress Well drunk on cosmic sex vibes (and far less sadness), the Berlin producer’s project, Robots Don’t Sleep introduces R&B- kissed magnetism weaved through heavy, diamond-cut bass. Making what was already a sought-after infatuation, even more tempting, Synkro drips his magic onto Robots Don’t Sleep’s vivid, “So Bad” single. Synkro’s signature echoing breaks ripple and crest like a celestial storm billowing across the intergalactic plain, while the core of collaborating vocalist, John La Monica’s original words remain intact. Heartbeats play a game of hide and seek with the night, exchanging the original slinking basslines for tightly wound hi-hats building ambiance and gasps of reverbed come-hithers that collide into a track that will leave you hot, and more than bothered.

Tomas Barfod November Skies (Sekuoia Remix)
Probably my favorite ‘November Skies’ remix of the bunch. Sekuoia is fantastic at pulling the hollow, isolating darkness out of even the brightest of moods. It’s an almost crass and suffocating feeling, but I kind of like to get wrapped up in those emotions sometimes. Holy Other making beats on a farm in rural Scandanavia.

Rich Flyer - These Girls (DM Bones Remix)
Rich Flyer These Girls (DM Bones Remix)
Tuff Wax label heads wrangling new frontier with their Bones & Money’s project, take on even wilder terrain with the first side project effort. DM Bones goes solo on his remix of "These Girls," that gets all kinds of filthy with pitched vocals, a stuttering blur of drum patterns and the tempo cranked up. Cuz you know, on the DL, that’s how we like it n-e-ways. Luh dis edit so hard.
