Welcome to the Twenty-fifth edition of Remix Radar! We have quite the doozy of a week. A lot of quality of remixes we’re released with quite a few that had to be cut that would have made it in prior weeks. Sad, but it has to happen or I’d spend 15 hours a week on exclusively Remix Radar and I can’t do that.
Enough ranting, scroll down for what one man declares as the best remixes of the week. It’s well worth it!
Regard – Ride It (Jonas Blue Remix)
We start this week with arguably one of the most viral tracks of the year and its remix. Regard’s “Ride It” exploded on TikTok and spread like wildfire. Jonas Blue, an artist who knows a thing or two about massive blowups, brings his vision and provides a nice reimagining that will surely bring even more spins to Regard.
Habstrakt – The One (NGHTMRE Remix)
NGHTMRE takes Habstrakt’s “The One” to another dimension of BASS. If “The One” started on a level of 9 on a scale of bass intensity then NGHTMRE brings it up to an even spicier level not even on the scales. Sit back and let NGHTMRE blow your mind.
Halsey – Graveyard (Axwell Remix)
If you told me this was a remix of Halsey, I wouldn’t believe you and that isn’t a bad thing. Axwell does a great job of creating an infectious bounce that mixes with the pitched-up vocal sample for tasty ear-candy.
Mahalia Ft. Ella Mai – What You Did (Preditah Remix)
Preditah brings his trademark UK garage stylings to breath a club spirit into Mahalia and Ella Mai’s sexy RnB tune, “What You Did”. After listening to this 15 times, I’m confident in saying Preditah and Mahalia definitely need to link on a collaboration.
Grimes & i_o – Violence (Club Mix)
Not your traditional remix. Nonetheless, it’s a very cool club mix of Grimes & i_o’s “Violence”. I personally prefer the “club thump” to the original.
REYNA – The Way I Loved You (RAC Mix)
REYNA comes from my home state of Wisconsin so I will admit I have a soft spot for them. However, that doesn’t cloud my judgment for their RAC mix because it’s WITHOUT a doubt a great song. RAC brings that delectable groove that he’s brought to many songs. This one will skate around your head and will stay cemented there until the New Year.
P.S give a listen to REYNA. They bring a really cool sound to the indie-pop world.
Riton and Oliver Heldens Ft. Vula – Turn Me On (Marshall Jefferson Anthem Mix)
This is an absolutely saucy and groovy tune. One of the original purveyors of Chicago House, Marshall Jefferson brings a classic house mix and feel to Riton and Oliver Heldens’ “Turn Me On”. It’s an absolutely wonderful tune.
AURORA – Daydreamer (KDA London Dub Mix)
KDA brings a new perspective to AURORA’s “Daydreamer”. The British artist weaves frosty beats and sexy textures to construct a lush sound that will wow listeners.
Hot Since 82 – Tilted (Raxon Remix)
Raxon brings a terror-inducing sound to the remix of Hot Since 82’s “Titled”. The dark sound was a perfect tie-in for the final spooky weekend of the Halloween season.
Robosonic & EMPD – For The People (Illyus & Barrientos Remix)
A joyous sonic experience brought to you by Illyus & Barrientos. The duo increases the BPM and lets the bass roar and energy swell to build a hypnotic rhythm from Robosonic & EMPD’s “For The People”. 100% banger.
PNAU Ft. Ollie Gabriel – All Of Us (Brux Remix)
PNAU’s “All Of Us” gets a spacy house remix from Brux. It rattles and thumps with infectious sound design. Brux definitely brings his trademark brooding rhythms to the remix.
Dom Dolla – San Frandisco (Walker & Royce Remix)
I love the original and I now love the remix. Walker & Royce lace Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco” with outrageous sounds and samples to create a dreamland for tech-house fans.
DOPE LEMON – Hey You (Dope Lemon Vs. Cedric Gervais) [Cedric Gervais Remix]
Cedric Gervais creates quite an unexpected sound from the growling indie tune by DOPE LEMON. Cedric’s remix brings his classic house sound to “Hey You”. The track has a sexiness that makes this perfect for laser-lit clubs.
Robinson – Don’t Say (PBH & Jack Remix)
PBH & Jack drizzle intoxicating synth-waves on Robinson’s “Don’t Say” to construct a sizzler of a remix. it’s clear to see why BBC Radio 1’s Mistajam named them “ones to watch”.
Lastings – Last Breath (Adult Art Club Remix)
I’ve been a big fan of the music from Lastlings and Adult Art Club. That fandom doesn’t change as Adult Art Club transforms “Last Breath” into a dark and twisted synth-heavy tune that is layered with intricate sounds. It’s pure ecstasy.
Eli & Fur – Into The night (Black Circle Remix)
Eli & Fur gets a little deeper and darker with a remix from Black Circle. There’s a lot of interesting sounds that ring throughout this track and forms a nice cosmic-like journey for listeners.
Elderbrook with Rudimental – Something About You (Mason Maynard Remix)
Mason Maynard drips his trademark psychedelic house vibes on Elderbrook and Rudimental’s “Something About You”. There’s something about this remix that will leave an insatiable groove rattling between listeners’ ears.
Fatoumata Diawara – Kokoro (Laolu Remix)
The Malian Grammy-nominated artist, Fatoumata Diawara, gets a haunting house remix from Laolu. The Swiss artist creates infectious energy and sound that listeners will come back to many times. It also seems to be perfect for a hipster house party.
Laurent Wolf – No Stress (Tommie Sunshine & MureKian Remix)
I had the pleasure of meeting Tommie Sunshine at this year’s ADE and I have to say, he’s easily one of the nicest guys in Dance Music. He is also really great at producing dope tracks. His streak of dopeness continues with MureKian and their remix of Laurent Wolf’s “No Stress”.
Robbie Dox – Mymind (The Cube Guys Remix)
The Cube Guys keep creating funk-inspired tunes and I am loving every second of it. Their spin of “Mymind” is groove-tastic and will start a party anywhere it’s played. An absolute banger.
Detriot Swindle – The Life Behind Things (Isoul8 Remix)
Isoul8 unleashes a vibrant groove to unlock the party for listeners. The newcomer definitely brings a delightful and psychedelic spirit to Detroit Swindle’s “The Life Behind”.
Tony Casanova – Kap Suzette (Jonas Saalbach Remix)
Jonas Saalbach builds an atmospheric soundscape from Tony Casanova’s “Kap Suzette”. The slow build-up of intricate layers is well worth the wait as it consumes listeners with the full vibrancy of the sound.
League Of Legends – Phoenix (Blanke Remix)
I am surprised it took this long for League Of Legends to capitalize on the convergence between gaming and dance music, which we’ve seen plenty of in the past couple of years. Gladly, League Of Legends brings in the always impressive Blanke to remix “Phoenix”. The result is a well-spirited, future bass tune that League fans will enjoy.
Knife Party Ft. Harrison – Death & Desire (Laidback Luke Remix)
Laidback Luke conjures spirits from 2012 EDM to construct a whirling remix from Knife Party’s “Death & Desire”. This one will hit listeners with feelings of nostalgia.
Sultan + Shepard, Rock Mafia & Bahari – Miles to Your Heart (HARBER Remix)
Burgeoning artist, HARBER, brings a playful exuberance to “Miles to Your Heart”, the collaboration between Sultan + Shepard, Rock Mafia & Bahari. It’s a very fun and joyous remix that will bring warmth to listeners’ days.
Brooklyn Bounce – Bass, Beats, & Melody (Sergio Marini & Luke Remix)
Sergio Marini & Luke create the perfect remix to soundtrack a vampire party. Or I still have a Halloween hangover clouding my judgment… Anyway, the progressive techno stylings make for a juicy remix that will feel at home in any dimly lit, cement only rooms.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Teenage Bad Girl – Cocotte (Boys Noize Rework)
In honor of Boys Noize’s recent releases and appearance as Dog Blood at HARD Day Of The Dead this past Saturday, I bring forth the Boys Noize rework of Teenage Bad Girl’s “Cocotte”. In what would become a familiar Boys Noize element, he unleashes a heavy amount of distortion that creates an almost Daft Punk quality – listen to “Robot Rock/Oh Yeah” off Alive 2007 and you’ll get what I mean. Overall, I really enjoy the scratchy, demented sound that Boys Noize constructs.
