Disclosure continues to be the most blogged about act of 2013, but this time it is thanks to a remix by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The British DJ add his fun twist to an already amazing track. This release is huge and I would go to say better than the original. With remixes from Flume, Baauer and Toro y Moi, Disclosure adds another huge name to the list of remixed artists. Stream the track below.
I am a huge Beats of Antique fan, so I was stokked to hear that they were covering the hottest song of 2013. David of Beats of Antique heard Charles Butler on YouTube covering “Get Lucky” with his banjo. He loved it so much that he reached out to him and got him in the studio. Within a few days they had a finished product and a nice alternative to the hit song.
Pleasurekraft announced a new series on their SoundCloud today for their favorite up and coming producers, as well as featuring established artists.
Here is the description taken directly from their SoundCloud of Volume 1, featuring four tracks. Here is the stream of all four songs and the descriptions:
The first cut – “Got a Feeling” – by UK based Josh Butler saw a release on MTA records remixed by fellow countryman (and Kraftek regular) Bontan – however this version has a new bassline and a new arrangement by the Pleasurekraft boys themselves.
The second track from Spanish duo Raw Rootz – (one member being Cadenza’s own Scan Mode) is a driving groovy techno number – the most peak time track featured on the release.
From there we move to a brand new Canadain trio – Return of the Jaded with their tune “Lolita” which draws influences from an array of electronic genres and turns them into more than the sum of their parts.
Lastly – another group of Canadain producers – this time from Toronto – Subplot, and Cosella – whose brilliant tune “The Wire” is a lovely deep tech house number with a dark underbelly – inspired by the legendary HBO series “The Wire”.
My favorite on the series is the Pleasurekraft Edit of the Bontan Remix of Josh Butler’s Got A Feeling. The edit is not so different from the original, but Pleasurekraft’s high level of skill in production shines through above the rest.
Pleasurekraft has so mastered their art, that they are now beginning to pass the torch to other artists. Excited to see where the rest of this series goes and discover new artists!
The classic sound from Phantom of the Opera has been used in several songs, but here recently Ruckus Roboticus made an Electro House version using the same chord progression. Louis La Roche, known for his addicting disco house, surprised me with this remix. The sound is much grungier than I would expect from Louis. I like it. I didn’t love it after a first listen because I’m not a fan of Electro House, but this is a bit different and it starts to grow on you, see for yourself.
I saw this song posted up and before even hearing it, knew it would become a favorite of mine for the summer. The Martin Brothers, Justin and Christian, teamed up to take on the classic from fellow DirtyBird artists Kill Frenzy. Other artists, including Zombie Disco Squad, Plastician and Mark Starr remixed the track as well.
The original is one of my all time favorites, featuring a nasty little Moombahton breakdown in the middle of the song. The Martin Brothers deliver a killer remix here looping the vocals over the build of the track and then drop in a bassline you come to expect from these two. Do yourself a favor, and buy the full version of this remix. A teaser just won’t do.
Two new Trap bangers for you today.
The first is from the Swedish Duo Cazzette. Cazzette has always been in between genres- blurring the lines between house and harder styles, so it is no surprise to me that here they try their hand at Trap. It is a hard song to fuck up, lets be honest. Tim Berg’s Alcoholic has been remixed by almost everyone and as long as you keep the vocal line “Call it what you wanna call it, I’m a fucking alcoholic” the song is gunna go off. This one is no exception, enjoy.
Next up, a Trap mix of the instant classic Who from Plastik Funk and Tujamo. The song gained instant appeal with big name DJs all around the world, putting the song in their sets. This trap mix is good- not beautifully mastered or finalized but it is rocking, there are no doubts about that. Good work Victor Niglio, keep em coming.
The hottest song of the year is out. I’m more excited to bring you this song than any other I’ve blogged about before. Justin Martin is hands down one of my favorite producers of all time. Justin makes everything from deep groovy house to bangin breaks, so it isn’t that surprising he wanted to try his hand in a trap remix. Justin Martin chose well by taking the most recent release from arguably the hottest trap producer in the game, UZ. Justin transforms UZ’s Trap Shit V13 into a house tempo track that still contains everything you look for in a trap banger.
Check out the original and Justin Martin’s remix below:
Flosstradamus and DJ Sliink recently teamed up to release their Nomads EP. The EP contains two songs, Test Me and Crowd Control, both of which are excellent. UZ chose to remix Test Me and killed it as always. UZ recently released his mixtape Ball Trap Muzic Vol 1 filled with absolutely killer tracks and featuring a few of today’s hottest rap artists. UZ is creating quite the stir by not revealing his identity, as he keeps his mask on for all photographs and shows. Whoever UZ is, he’s absolutely destroying the trap scene. Enjoy this massive remix from the masked man himself.
Got a new trap remix for you today from my absolute favorite trap producer in the game, RL Grime, and his good homie Salva. This duo seems to just massacre remixes together. After producing arguably the best 2012 trap remix, I’m talking of course about Mercy, the dynamic duo is back with another massive track. I heard this one a few months back when RL Grime was in Portland and lost my shit. So excited to share this one with you all.
This past week the Chemical Brothers previewed their latest remix of Boys Noize, “XTC.” This is the first preview of there upcoming record that also includes a remix of Justice’s “Ich R U.” This track goes even harder than the original will be a staple this festival season. The 12-inch single is set to be released next month with both tracks.
