Welcome back to the hottest dance editorial of the week! Remix Radar is swirling with that sticky icky, thumping and bumping that we’ve all come to love and enjoy. This week was a little bit harder to find the tasty remixes but we managed to find some sizzlers with Michael Calfan, Solomun, and Eelke Kleijn making appearances. Scroll down to mesmerize the senses and begin this week’s Remix Radar.
Hayden James Ft. NAATIONS – Nowhere To Go (Michael Calfan Remix)
Michael Calfan makes his return to Remix Radar with the ultra-sexy remix of Hayden James’s “Nowhere To Go”. The Parisian artist drips his sultry piano chords over its soul to make his mark on the track. He expertly keeps the emphasis on NAATIONS’ vocalist, Nat Dunn, whose voice lures listeners into the tracks all-encompassing vibrancy.
CamelPhat & Cristoph Ft. Jem Cooke – Breathe (Cristoph Remix)
Featured last week for his remix of CamelPhat’s Be Someone, Cristoph makes another appearance with his remix of “Breathe”, his collaboration with CamelPhat and Jem Cooke. Cristoph peels away some of the synths and focuses the remix on a brooding beat that consistently builds until the top comes off and the song fades to nothing.
Apparat – OUTLIER (Solomun Remix)
One part of Moderat, Apparat, is known for cinematic electronic music. He recently released his album LP5, which unfurls and explores a deep, atmospheric electronic experience. Following the album release, Apparat employed Solomun to provide a remix of “OUTLIER”. The remix is everything we want from Solomun as he provides a spiritual experience that tantalizes the inner soul with a rhythmic enchantment.
RÜFÜS DU SOL – No Place (Eelke Kleijn Remix)
Eelke Kleijn flips “No Place” into a vibrant down-tempo track. Kleijn utilizes groovy guitar chords, a thumping beat, and some sizzling synths to transform this into his own vibe. It’s definitely a refreshing take on RÜFÜS DU SOL.
Walker & Royce – Why Tho (Sam von Horn Remix)
A part of Justin Jay’s “Fantastic Voyage”, Sam von Horn makes his CULTR and Remix Radar debut for his unique and infectious remix of Walker & Royce’s “Why Tho”. Sam keeps the sound design relatively minimalist which allows the beat to drive the song and allows the unique sounds to have a greater sonic impact.
D.O.D – According To Me (Beth Yen Remix)
D.O.D’s “According to Me” receives a saucy remix pack that includes Cedric Gervais, Beth Yen, and JP Candela. All three remixes are quite remarkable, but my favorite is from the burgeoning artist, Beth Yen. Beth transforms the track into a more traditional house sound that has a seductive beat to get dancefloors moving.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Michael Calfan – Treasured Soul (Chocolate Puma Remix)
Thanks to Michael Calfan’s new remix this week, it reminded me of the boisterous bass-house remix of “Treasured Soul” by Chocolate Puma. The track was one of my favorites of 2015 and truly mesmerizes. Utilizing the delicate and infectious soul of Michael’s “Treasured Soul”, Chocolate Puma adds searing and thumping bass to flip this into a thunderous club banger.
