The long-awaited return of Remix Radar is here! A month hiatus is broken with some tasty remixes. We feature Tchami, MEDUZA, and Tom Mischa. Plus, I include a few remixes that we missed over The Holiday Break. I hope everyone had a good holiday season and are now ready to jam out to some incendiary remixes. Scroll down for the party!
Valentino Khan & Diplo – JustYourSoul (Tchami Remix)
“JustYourSoul”, the collaboration from Valentino Khan and Diplo, is a raucous house affair with all the right sounds to get any party, dancefloor, or event grooving into the night. Tchami reimages the hit into a puncturing remix with a new steely beat and a little bit of grime to make this more acceptable for dank warehouses.
Common – My Fancy Free Future Love (Tom Misch Remix)
Tom Misch captivates listeners with the insatiable, jazzy remix of Common’s “My Fancy Free Future Love”. Instead of flipping the track into something completely different, Tom utilizes the soul of the original and adds a little more electronic elements that turn this into what could be described as a modern take on Jazz and Soul.
Oh Wonder – Happy (Joe Goddard Remix)
Oh Wonder has been soaring to the stratosphere with their infectious alt-pop sound, which has seen the duo score a top-ten album and countless soldout shows across the globe. For their newest single, “Happy”, the duo brings the psychedelic mind of Joe Goddard, one part of Hot Chip, on-board to remix the tune. What comes together is a joyous, electronic sound that will have listeners singing the chorus over and over.
Dermot Kennedy – Power Over Me (MEDUZA Remix)
Like a rush of blood to the head. MEDUZA brings an accelerating injection of deep house that rumbles the soulful Dermot Kennedy to form a perfect remix for the clubs.
Endor – Pump It Up (Jax Jones Midnight Snacks Remix)
The original “Pump It Up” comes from the artist Danzel and was released in 2004. The original single went on to be number 10 single in Europe and the UK. The modern reimagining from Endor and the accompanying remixes from Jax Jones and Low Steppa will surely see this tune get a deserved resurgence. I absolutely love Jax Jones’s remix and Endor’s take. Both are so groovy that I can’t help but move to the beat.
David Novacek, Dani Masi, & Juan Trumpet – Give Me More (Robbie Rivera Remix)
A dark, trippy excursion into tribalistic house music from the legend, Robbie Rivera. Image if Pixar’s Coco was a Tim Burton film instead. That’s this “Give Me More” remix.
OFFAIAH – Love Me (BACATME Remix)
BACATME hops on-board and provides the remix for OFFAIAH’s global dance staple, “Love Me”. The former collaboration partner brings a brooding deepness to the remix that is reminiscent of the early deep house movement of the mid-2010s. BACATME’s take will feel at home in any club.
Max Styler Ft. Laura White – Let Me Take You There (KC Lights Remix)
I am not going to lie, the previous remixes of Max Styler’s work have not really been my cup of tea. However, that all changed when KC Lights dropped a remix of “Let Me Take You There”. What KC brings is growling energy from the depths of the low-ends, which fuses with the perfectly reworked vocals of Laura White to form a soaring sound that will excite listeners.
Willaris. K – 5 O’CLOCK (TSHA Remix)
Willaris. K has been a breakout artist from the Australian electronic scene and has recently signed with Universal Music. His remix of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s “Underwater” is a masterpiece and was one of my favorites of 2019. Another artist who is on a similar breakout trajectory is the UK’s TSHA. She provides an atmospheric remix of “5 O’CLOCK” that soars through listeners’ imagination and connects on an emotional plane. Overall, it’s very clear to see why TSHA is being talked about extensively.
The Avener Ft. M.I.L.K – Under The Waterfall (Marquis Hawkes Remix)
An inventive remix from Marquis Hawkes brings a new, uplifting bite to “Under The Waterfall”. The almost seven minutes of track time gives listeners plenty of time to embrace the delectable grooviness that Marquis creates.
Noizu – Baby Baby (ATTLAS Remix)
I love what ATTLAS did on his remix of Noizu’s “Baby Baby”. He brings forth nice connective energy that really pulls me into the song. The synth progression and the drop radiate pure happiness. I honestly can’t get enough of this tune.
Mark Sixma Presents M6 – Fade 2 Black (KhoMha Remix)
Mark Sixma released “Fade 2 Black” over a decade ago under his moniker M6. It went on to be a widely successful dance track of 2008 and brought plenty of eyes to Mark Sixma. The revitalization comes from Colombian trance artist, KhoMha. The remix is a high-octane track with a lot of deep, dark twists and turns in its production. It’s an explosive modern awakening for “Fade 2 Black”
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Lane 8 Ft. Lulu James – Love You (Moon Boots Remix)
In honor of Lane 8 releasing his newest album, The Brightest Lights, I thought it was fitting to feature one of my favorite remixes of Lane 8. Before Moon Boots was dropping insanely intricate albums, he created this gem of a remix from “Love You”. Everything about this track is perfect and the structure creates an insatiable sound that keeps me coming back year after year.
