Welcome back to Remix Radar! We’re thirty weeks in with only one more week left to go before we take a small hiatus until the new year. Fortunately, we have some great tunes this week with more on the way. This week we feature Good Times Ahead, BloodPop®, and Gorgon City. Strap in and scroll down for the juiciest remixes of the week.
Major Lazer with J Balvin & El Alfa – Que Calor (Good Times Ahead Remix)
One of the hottest songs of the year receives a Good Times Ahead reimagination. The duo f.k.a GTA transform “Que Calor” into a rambunctious moombahton edit destined to serve as a margarita-drinking pool party theme song.
Tove Lo – Sweettalk my Heart (BloodPop® & BURNS Vitaclub Remix)
I absolutely love what BloodPop® and BURNS did with this remix. The layering and processing on the Tove Lo vocal create a haunting feeling that crawls up listeners’ spines and sends shivers through the body. The rather minimalist drop punctures the atmosphere and takes listeners to a new layer of sound.
DAVI – Lie Machine (Gorgon City Remix)
A delicious beat defines this sexy remix from Gorgon City. The British duo surrounds said beat with tantalizing synths the flirt with and intoxicate the brainstem. Although the song is seven minutes long, by the end listeners will yearn for more.
Tritonal Ft. Rosie Darling – Never Be The Same (ALPHA 9 Remix)
Tritonal’s “Never Be The Same” gets the remix treatment from Arty under his Alpha 9 moniker. Built upon the spirit of progressive, it swells and bubbles with lush synths weaving a heavenly sound until the “drop” thumps and unleashes the pent-up energy. The remix is Arty’s second release of the year as ALPHA 9.
Born Dirty & Diplo – Samba Sujo (Blond:ish Remix)
Blond:ish brings a new groove to Born Dirty & Diplo’s “Samba Sujo”. It punches, it cascades, and it even flirts with eardrums. Overall, Blond:ish crafts a beautiful remix for any sort of environment.
Kito & Empress Of – Wild Girl (Paul Woolford Remix)
Paul Woolford is an absolute legend of the dance scene. It’s no shock to hear him weave together a sound that excites and energizes in such tantalizing ways. “Wild Girl” becomes Paul’s muse and he spins it to entrance listeners with joy.
The Salsoul Orchestra – Ooh I Love It (Love Break) (Late Nite Tuff Guy Muscle Edit)
Aussie legends Late Nite Tuff Guy reimagine the classic 80s disco hit, “Ooh I Love It”. The Salsoul Orchestra hit has been sampled by producers and utilized by DJs across decades of dance music. True to the original, Late Nite Tuff Guy keeps the groovy disco spirit while bringing forward a modern thumping rhythm.
Joris Voorn Ft. HÆLOS – Messiah (Dark Science Piano Mix)
Dark Science – Voorn’s house driven alias – crafts a tasty new sound from “Messiah”. Joris douses the original with a euphoric piano melody and sultry beat to form a perfect club tune.
Sebb Junior – Physical (Glen Horsborough Remix)
Another piano-fied house tune for our readers. Sebb Junior’s “Physical” gets a little sassier and a bit more mysterious after Glen Horsborough works his magic.
Anden – Mirage (Tom Zeta Remix)
Tom Zeta takes listeners through a melodic techno journey on his remix of Anden’s “Mirage”. Like the original, Tom’s remix is a swelling, wave-like mixture of synths, pounding bass, and distorted vocals, where they differ is the overall attitude. The remix feels a little more aggressive than the original with extra layers of vibrant sounds.
Hybrid Minds & Fred V – Drowning In You (Levela Remix)
Levela unveils a wubbed-out DnB remix of “Drowning In you” by Hybrid Minds and Fred V. It’s everything anyone could ever want from a headbanging dance tune.
Modeselektor & FLOHIO – Wealth (Sarah Farina Remix)
I am a huge fan of Modeselektor so of course, I would love the Sarah Farina remix. It’s wild, experimental sound that I am sure any fan of underground electronic music will be a fan of.
Yotto – Hyperlude (Dosem Edit)
A part of Yotto’s Hyperfall, “Hyperlude” served as a prelude or bridge track in the album where it swirled with energy as it led listeners into “Radiate”. Dosem brings a new take and unleashes a poignant sound that radiates with an intoxicating bite.
Dubdogz – Techno Prank (LOthief Remix)
Dubdogz highly successful “Techno Prank” receives its second remix pack where the standout version comes from LOthief. The Brazilian artist creates a perfect minimalist sound that will send listeners down a techno rabbit hole.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Nao – Get to Know Ya (KAYTRANADA FLIP)
In honor of the recent news that Kaytranada will be releasing his album Bubba this week, I feature my favorite remix from him. He transforms Nao’s “Get to Know Ya” into a steamy groove built by an entrancing melodic vibe and an enchanting sound design. It’s a tune that will stick to listeners’ brains for years to come.
