It looks like the music industry has awakened from its Winter slumber. Last week had major releases from Eminem, Halsey, Jonas Brothers, and a posthumous release from Mac Miller. We also received new dance releases from Steve Aoki, Mura Masa, and Zeds Dead. This “awakening” also trickled down to remix releases, which means Remix Radar has quite a few tasty treats. We feature Party Pupils, Dom Dolla, and Yultron. Plus many more delicious tunes for you to discover.
MAX Ft. Chromeo – Checklist (Party Pupils Remix)
An absolute JAM! Party Pupils brings an extra layer of funk that’s driven by house vibes to MAX and Chromeo’s “Checklist”. It’s playful with warmth and depth that will work across a spectrum of dancefloors and venues.
MK & Sonny Fodera Ft. Raphaella – One Night (Dom Dolla Remix)
Dom Dolla unleashes a darker sound upon MK and Sonny Fodera’s “One Night”. The steeliness and deepness really transform this into something completely different and more accessible to grimy club sets.
DJ Snake & Eptic – SouthSide (YULTRON Remix)
This remix is exploding on the Internet and the streaming world. Yultron brings his trademark hyper-explosive sound to DJ Snake and Eptic’s “SouthSide” and it’s everything you need to get hyped.
Armin van Buuren vs. Tempo Giusto – Mr. Navigator (i_o Remix)
With Armin van Buuren exploring a darker, more industrial sound on “Mr. Navigator” it feels fitting to see i_o be the one to remix it. While overall the dark, thumping vibe remains, i_o does bring a new imaging that sees this remix become ready for dimly lit techno warehouses.
Mr. Tape & Kaskade – Come On (Chris Moody Remix)
Chris Moody brings an absolute vibe to “Come On”. He remixes the Mr. Tape and Kaskade track to have a sexier, house beat that creates an infectious groove. A perfect pick-me-up for any party or event.
King Princess – Hit The Back (Channel Tres Remix)
Is there any current artist that is creating anything more groovy than Channel Tres? It doesn’t matter if it’s an original or remix, the man is a goldmine of great tracks. His remix of King Princess continues his long streak of songs that have a feeling or natural pull for listeners. It’s intoxicating.
R+ & Dido – My Boy (Shadow Child Mix)
R+ (or R Plus) and Dido have been in the midst of releasing a stellar remix pack of their track, “My Boy” with MEDUZA kicking things off. Most recently, Shadow Child brings us his version, which in short, is tantalizing. The remix has an irresistible charm and feeling to it that I really enjoy. Another stellar piece of music from Shadow Child.
Neon Indian – Toyota Man (Mr. Frankel, Cigar Cigarette Remix)
No idea why they titled the remix “Mr. Frankel, Cigar Cigarette”, besides the obvious that Mr. Frankel represents Alex Frankel who provided the remix. Overall, I love this remix and its trippiness.
Overcoats – Leave If You Wanna (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)
Indie-pop darlings, Overcoats, become a muse to Ryan Hemsworth and his creative genius. He brings a fresh, original sound to “Leave If You Wanna” that isn’t quite like anything else out there. In this case, it’s a good thing.
Ben Böhmer & Monolink – Black Hole (Gui Boratto Rework)
Ben Böhmer and Monolink’s “Black Hole” receives two great remixes from Gui Boratto and Martin Roth. My favorite is Gui Boratto who brings an emphasis to the guitar rift, which unlocks new energy and transforms “Black Hole” into a whole new song. Another fresh sound.
Hannah Wants – Love Somebody (Eskuche Remix)
Eskuche unveils a club-banger with his remix of “Love Somebody” from Hannah Wants. Everything about this production is excellent. It oozes the right amount of bass, has a sexy vocal chop, groovy drum programming, and arpeggiated synths. I could listen to this all day.
Sem Thomasson – Grey Zone (Simon Ray Remix)
Sem Thomasson’s “Grey Zone” gets a little more rambunctious and house-y from Simon Ray’s remix. The remix has a delightful piano bit that leads into a swelling build that locks listeners into the wave.
Sono – Keep Control (ARTBAT Remix)
Arguably my favorite remix of the week. ARTBAT provides a spacy remix of Sono’s “Keep Control”. The sound is infectious and is a vibe that I can’t get enough of.
Kings Of The Rollers – You Got Me (S.P.Y Remix)
“Wubs” meet Drum ‘N Bass. S.P.Y dials the heat-up and unleashes a sound that pulls listeners into its all-consuming wave. I could get into an explosion of DnB.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Holy Ghost! – Crime Cutz (Neon Indian Remix)
Thanks to the Alex Frankel remix that is above, I was reminded of the awesome, funk-laden remix of Holy Ghost!’s “Crime Cutz” from Neon Indian. Alan Palomo adds a driving rhythmic percussion section that makes this a perfect tune to dance to.
