Welcome back to Remix Radar! We took a short vacation to re-energize and to celebrate the American Independence Day. That means to make up for being AWOL we will cover the past two weeks of remixes. Without further adieu, Remix Radar 010!
Zara Larsson – All the Time (Don Diablo)
To kick things off this week, I bring forth a bounce-y future house remix from Don Diablo. The remix is exactly what you expect and want from Don, a perfect dose of energy to start the day.
Sigala & Becky Hill – Wish You Well (Benny Benassi Remix)
At the spritely age of 51, Benny Benassi is still crushing the dance world. He spins a delicious house remix of Sigala and Becky Hill’s “Wish You Well”, proving that age is only a number and that it won’t stop Benny from continue being a trailblazer.
Mark Ronson Ft. Camila Cabello – Find U Again (MK Remix)
MK highlights why he’s been a leading purveyor of house music, since the 90s with his remix of “Find U Again”. The 46 year-old spins the Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello hit into a dazzling, fresh house mix that is better than the original.
MK – Body 2 Body (Chris Lake Remix)
MK makes another appearance, but this time as the muse to the genius that is Chris Lake. Mr. Lake provides the epilogue to MK’s “Body 2 Body” remix pack and it’s a groovy tech house spin, which will be a staple of the Ibiza summer.
Kiiara – Open My Mouth (Michael Calfan Remix)
Michael Calfan douses “Open My Mouth” with a piano melody to make it his own bop. The overall vibe feels very Michael Calfan, while providing a fresh groove.
Calfan also released a remix for Labrinth’s “Miracle”. It’s another great track and I highly recommend a listen.
KREAM & Eden Prince Ft. Louisa – Ain’t Thinkin Bout You (KC Lights Remix)
Another week, another appearance by KC Lights. The Scottish producer/DJ has been absolutely crushing it with his remixes of MK and his recent, mind-melting single, “Sol“. He continues his brilliance with a funky house remix of KREAM and Eden Prince’s “Ain’t Thinkin Bout You”. It’s everything you would want to hear while deep in a club.
Jess Glynne & Jax Jones – One Touch (Todd Edwards Remix)
The legend, Todd Edwards, constructs a sizzling remix of “One Touch”. Edwards stays true to his style and proves his legendary status in UK Garage, while making “One Touch” his own.
Catz ‘n Dogz Ft. ZENSOFLY & Maxville – Wave (Justin Martin Remix)
Justin Martin constructs a whimsical tech house remix of “Wave” by Catz ‘n Dogz. Justin adds a layer of thick bass and oscillating elements layered within the sound design to truly make something exciting. It’s clear to see Justin’s production wizardry.
Africanism with Martin Solveig – Edony (Nico De Andrea Remix)
My favorite remix of the week, Nico De Andrea intoxicates listeners with his remix of “Edony” by the collaborative project, Africanism. It exudes Middle Eastern vibes and tribal beats, creating something that feels classic, yet timeless. Overall, it’s a jam! The Ferdy remix is also really cool.
Dom Dolla – Take It (Billy Kenny Remix)
The Don of This Ain’t Bristol provides the closing chapter of Dom Dolla’s “Take It” Remix Pack. The result is an absolute monster of a tune that tickles listeners with pleasure.
Yolanda Be Cool – Space Jam (Noizu Remix)
Noizu sends people to space with his tech-house remix of Yolanda Be cool’s cover of “Space Jam”. This one is perfect for an acid-infused Space Jam party as it will only enhance the trip.
graves Ft. ZEKE BEATS – Intro (UKato Remix)
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an intro track receive a remix. Well, graves thought it was a brilliant idea and entrusted UKato to provide the sauce. Overall, UKato dazzles with his DnB remix.
ZDS & Will Clarke – The Beat (Two Tails Remix)
Two Tails have been making their ascent via Dirty Bird Records and it continues with the blissful tech-house remix of “The Beat”. The Minnesotan duo construct a savory beat that pairs well with piña coladas and pool parties.
Ben Pearce Ft. Tayla – Fireproof (Ten Ven Remix)
I really enjoy the vibe Ten Ven constructs out of “Fireproof”. It’s a bit sexier and sultrier than the original with sizzling snares and a really interesting vocal chop. I also think Tayla’s vocals work even better amongst Ten Van’s dark synth progression.
Diplo Ft. Tove Lo – Win Win (Yotto Remix)
I never expected to hear a Diplo and Tove Lo track receive a space-y makeover. Thankfully Yotto was entrusted. The remix is a deep dive into the ethereal plane that sends listeners floating through a world of shivering synths and glittering lights.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Boys Noize – Midnight (Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo Handbraekes Remix)
To close this week, I bring forth the dark and twisted Handbrakes Remix by Mr. Oizo and Boys Noize. The pair flip “Midnight’ into something even more startling and terrifying than the original. This is a perfect shot of energy to continue the grind to the sunrise.
