The best part of the week is back! Remix Radar Edition number 21 is chock-full of delicious sounds to brighten your Tuesday. This week we feature more remixes than ever before! These include: Diplo, Chris Lorenzo, and a recent constant to Remix Radar, Cristoph. It was quite a week!
Strap yourself in and scroll down for the juiciest remixes of the past week.
Kaskade and Felix Cartal Ft. Jenn Blosil – More (Diplo Remix)
Everyone’s favorite cowboy returns to Remix Radar with a saucy Tech House remix for Kaskade and Felix Cartal. Diplo spins “More” from a delicate pop ballad into a brooding and ominous track perfect for dingy, cement only clubs. I really enjoy this sound from Diplo.
The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Cristoph Remix)
Sweet Disposition, the massive, MASSIVE hit from The Temper Trap, has danced around our subconscious for over a decade. It still makes appearances in movies and TV. In other words, the song is truly generational.
Recent Remix Radar commonality, Cristoph reimages “Sweet Disposition” into a dark and ravenous club sizzler. It punches in all the right ways.
Boombox Cartel Ft. MadeinTYO – New WIP (Chris Lorenzo Remix)
Chris Lorenzo rides the low-ends with the ferocity of a thousand tigers to create his remix of Boombox Cartel and MadeinTYO’s “New WIP”. The remix carries steady, rhythmic energy that dances around the sound design to create Chris’s gritty Bass House version.
Ian Carey Ft. Michelle Shellers – Keep On Rising (OFFAIAH Remix)
I am a big fan of OFFAIAH. The man has been putting out sexy, house-dripped tracks for the last three years. His remix of Ian Carey and Michelle Shellers’ “Keep On Rising” is a vibey, deep house exploration. He removes the pretty, dance-pop stylings to make a remix that is remarkably OFFAIAH.
End Of The World Ft. Clean Bandit – Lost (Fresh Mode Remix)
One of the coolest and freshest remixes of the week. The unknown artist, Fresh Mode, provides the groovy and delectable remix. The melody is highly infectious and will clamp to your brain. You’ll have this on repeat for weeks to come.
Valerie Broussard Ft. Galantis – Roots (BUNT. Disco Remix)
Geffen Records’ 2019 debutant, BUNT., makes their first appearance on Remix Radar. The German duo provides the two-track remix pack for Valerie Broussard and Galantis’ “Roots”. I prefer the Disco Remix version because I am a sucker for anything disco or well-placed brass instrumentation. For the Disco version, Bunt. constructs a pop-laced brass-ified remix that skates with a whimsical and uplifting energy that will breathe life into parties.
Duke Dumont and Zak Abel – The Power (Jesse Perez Remix)
Jesse Perez composes a track befit for Duke Dumont’s “For Club Play Only” motto. “The Power” remix toes the line of classic 90s/00s club music and modern dance and house music. These elements come together to form a rhythmic and intoxicating sound.
Roberto Surace – Joys (Purple Disco Machino Remix)
Finally some new Purple Disco Machine! He hops on the remix of Defected Records’ “Joys” by Roberto Surace. Purple Disco Machine entwines the original with his trademark “deep funk”. In other words, a booty shaker.
Haywyre – Square One (Balkan Bump & Low Lite Remix)
The Haywyre Panorama: Discover Remixes is quite the well-constructed remix pack. In particular, the Kill Paris and Ellis remixes are getting the most love on DSP playlists. However, I want to shine a light on the Balkan Bump and Low Lite remix of “Square One”. It’s a lush world of live instrumentation, engulfing funk and soul vibes, and an insatiable groove. It culminates in a deftly cutting remix that fills the air with warmth.
P.S catch Balkan Bump on tour with Gramatik.
Jai Wolf – Lose My Mind Remixes
It was tough to pick a favorite from the Jai Wolf “Lose My Mind” remix pack. Each individual remix tells their own tale and beams their own emotional pull. Overall, it’s an eclectic exploration that radiates otherworldly vibes. Be sure to listen to each remix from Luttrell, ford., and Feki.
Deadmau5 – fn pig (ov) (Spencer Brown Remix)
Deadmau5 kicks off his upcoming remix pack with a spiritual awakening brought to you by Spencer Brown. I don’t want to spoil this remix. JUST GO LISTEN!
Above & Beyond Ft. Zoë Johnston – There’s Only You (No Mana Remix)
No Mana brings fierce intensity to Above & Beyond’s “There’s Only You. He intertwines the prettiness of Above & Beyond with daring industrial and techno sounds. It’s a rather intriguing sound that No Mana creates.
Tycho Ft. Saint Sinner – Skate (pluko Remix)
I am a big fan of the music pluko has put out. His recent album, Class XIX, is a dive through atmospheric and emotion-clade sound design. His remix for Tycho and Sain Skinner oozes the intoxicating pluko sound. You’ll be hooked from the start.
Dezza – Apollo (Murtagh Remix)
Murtagh makes you hear God on his divine remix of Dezza’s “Apollo”. It’s an acid trip for your ears. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
This remix comes from the Enhanced Music mixed album by Matt Fax and Dezza. It’s an almost 3-hour mix that is incredible. I suggest giving the entire thing a listen.
Pierce Fulton – The Move (Direct Remix)
Another remix for your soul. Burgeoning artist, Direct, conjures voodoo magic to take listeners on an adventure. He reimagines Pierce Fulton’s “The Move” with masterful precision that creates a feeling of hopefulness.
Nitti Gritti Ft. Jimmy Levy – Eyes On You (Shndō Remix)
Shndō has been behind the work of many big names, which include: Cardi B, Lupe Fiasco, and Galantis. He brings a refreshing, punchy sound to Nitti Gritti’s “Eyes On You” that will erupt dancefloors with ravenous energy.
ONE FROM THE VAULT
Oliver – Night Is On My Mind (Dillon Francis Remix)
This week’s One From The Vault is brought to you by Spotify’s shuffle. Prior to Dillon’s explosive rise, he released this thumping remix of Oliver’s “Night Is On My Mind”. Dillon’s remix wasn’t the most known from the pack. That honor is bestowed upon Tchami who scored major success. However, Dillon’s remix is nothing to ignore. It has an infectious energy that pounds with the force of a thousand elephants and is the perfect amount of raucousness.
