Daughter - Youth (Alle Farben remix)Alle Farben absolutely killed it with this remix. A good friend of mine recently shared this song with me and I can’t believe it’s taken me 4 months to discover it. I’ve been in love with the Love Thy Brother remix of Daughter and I’ve been waiting and waiting for another producer to make a good remix of the song. This one has got a really nice deep house touch to it that really amplifies and brings out the beautiful female vocals. Enjoy.

Sam Smith – Lay Me Down (Todd Edwa...

sam-smith-lay-me-down-todd-edwards-remix

I love Sam Smith so I’m always eager to hear any sort of remix or anything even remotely related to the London based vocalist, remix or otherwise.  This is the first remix I’ve heard of his most recent single and I really can’t say I’d expect to hear many that top this.  Clicks, claps, and a bouncing club beat are added onto the song to make for an overall awesomely reworked dance track courtesy of a man who’s made his name doing exactly that, Todd Edwards.

Purchase the single “Lay Me Down” on iTunes.

3LAU – Arc (Mashup)

Arc (3LAU Edit)

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything from 3LAU, and I’m pretty excited about his latest mashup, “Arc.” 3LAU combines 6 high energy tracks into one solid mashup, which can often be described by him as “dance floor filth.” Enjoy.

AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies (Baauer Remix)

FRESH FRESH FREEEEEEEEESH 

Just a couple of weeks ago we featured AlunaGeorge‘s track “Attracting Flies” that, pun intended, attracted a lot of attention. Now the mastermind behind “Yaow!” and “Harlem Shake” just released his official remix of the original. Baauer‘s rendition brings the whole track into a moombahton / trap realm whilst keeping true to the beautiful vocals provided by none other than Aluna. Hope you like this one as much as I do.

Ginger & The Ghost - One Type Of Dark (Ta-ku Remix)

Ohh man, I’ve got quite the gem for you kids today. This remix by Ta-ku is honestly as fresh as it gets. Taking the entrancing vocals of Ginger & The Ghost‘s original track and transforming it into a captivating trap-esque chill indie track that hits you in the face right about minutes in will leave you begging for more. Enjoy kids.

The Knocks – Magic (Viceroy Remix)

magic-the-knocks-viceroy-remix

I’m just gonna keep these spring/summer vibing remixes coming and honestly, who better to give us our next post than the king of spring/summer vibing remixes, Austen Afridi – better known as Viceroy.  You should be highly familiar with the name if you’ve been keeping up with our posts over the past year or so. He’s pretty much been a common fixture.  His latest remix is of The Knocks‘ track “Magic” which features everyone’s favorite singular vocalist Gary Go a.k.a. the man behind the voice on Benny Benassi’s “Cinema.”  Pick this one up for free and be sure to like/follow Viceroy‘s pages via the links below.

Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z – Su...

Alright alright I’m not gonna lie, this song has grown on me – albeit because of all these amazing remixes.  There’s something about any new Justin Timberlake that gets people all hot and bothered and his latest single, “Suit & Tie” off his recently released album, The 20/20 Experience, is no different.  I’m sure you’ve all heard the original a million times over by now so you’re probably ready for a few new remixes.  I’ve been diggin’ the Aeroplane remix personally but they’re all rather good so take your pick.  Pick up The 20/20 Experience via iTunes.

Russ Chimes – Turn Me Out

As a long time admirer of the London based dance-funk frequenter Russ Chimes, specifically for the dude’s remixes, I have to say he’s done and killed it with this original.  “Turn Me Out” was a track he put together at the back end of last year that featured on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show that has just re-surfaced.  It’s got everything we’ve come to know and love with an RC track and what better way for him follow up to his most recent single “Back 2 You” and kick-start his 2013 year. Expect to hear a full release come the end of next month via Colombia/Destruction Records.

Kaskade - Live At Ultra Music Festival (Saturday March 16, 2013)

Kaskade threw down an amazing set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami two days ago featuring an array of his own tracks, new and old. Unfortunately I was not there to experience it. For all you going next week, I’ll be living vicariously through you. For those of you who are not going to make it next week, make sure to check out the Ultra Live Stream HERE. Enjoy.

Monarchy does an awesome job with this cover/mash-up of Lana Del Rey’s infamous “Video Games” and Monarchy’s own track “Phoenix Alive.”  Blending the sexy electronic cut of their own song with their own sensual vocal cover of Lana’s track, the two surprisingly almost go hand in hand.  Round of applause to these two dudes; this is probably the best cover I’ve heard of this song (and there has been A LOT).

Little Daylight – Overdose (Remixe...

little-daylight-overdose

There’s been so many good remixes of this song being put out recently I figured it was about time to make a post.  Little Daylight are a indie-pop trio who up until the release of this song, have been specifically doing remixes.  They’ve done a few for bands like Passion Pit, The Temper Trap, and Niki and The Dove to name a few.  Not too long ago they did a remix of The Mowgli’s track “San Francisco,” which was probably my favorite of theirs up until now.  “Overdose” is their first official original track and it’s as good as any remix they’ve done – only this time it’s their own.  I’ve included the original and 3 of my favorite remixes of the song.  I’m still undecided on which I prefer the most; all of them are equally as good in their own individual way.  If you haven’t already, be sure to show Little Daylight some love by liking/following them via the links below.
