[HOUSE] KYLIE MINOGUE – “I WAS GONNA CANCEL (THE PRESETS REMIX)”

I_Was_Gonna_Cancel_Remixes

Kylie Minogue‘s I Was Gonna Cancel is one of the standout tracks off of her 12th studio effort Kiss Me Once that combines the best of Pharrell‘s production genius and all things Kylie. On the other hand, the album’s second single and one of the year’s most joyous and uplifting pop releases, thus far, has […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Phantogram- Fall In Love (Until The Ribbon Breaks Re-Imagination)

artworks-000076012123-csg9w5-t500x500

Darkness twists and darkness pulls, and sometimes synths can shower us enough until we drown, forced to swim outside our trapped, little worlds. Those kinds of synths turn the production into a firehose, and they always inevitably fail any time they try and force a Phantogram song to be anything other than what it inherently […]

[INDIE/DANCE] NoNoNo – “Pumpin Blood” (The Knocks Remix)

[INDIE/DANCE] NoNoNo - "Pumpin Blood" (The Knocks Remix)

Oh, that whistling. That funky, glitched out beat and the contrasting fluidity of those vocals. I tell you, The Knocks really know how to line ‘em up and shoot ‘em down when it comes to blissful, summer-drenched mixes. The NY duo have another piece of dance floor gold on their hands with this smooth take […]

[INDIE/HOUSE] Passion Pit - "Moth's Wings" (Artec Remix) [Free Download]

As electronic music continues to blend the line between genres, more and more will we find music that captures our tastes in more than one way. I first started seeing it way back in 2009, with Miike Snow’s breakthrough remix of Vampire Weekend’s “The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance”. Since that time there have been […]

[CHILLED] Zedd – “Find You” (Sci-Fi Scheme Remix) [Free Download]

[CHILLED] Zedd - "Find You" (Sci-Fi Scheme Remix) [Free Download]

Sometimes life just doesn’t give you a single breath of fresh air as you struggle under the constant demands of life, surrounded by impending deadlines and expectations – drowning under the pressures of all that needs to be done. I see it everywhere – hell, I’m guilty of it on a daily basis – repeating […]

[DARK SYNTHPOP] M83- Wait (Kygo Remix)

artworks-000075163755-dxk81n-t500x500

If you’re reducing Kygo’s remix of “Wait” to mellow tropicalia, ready to perk that shit up (as this review does) in a sunny but inoffensive way: throw out those thoughts and spin the dice of empathy again. This remix is devastating. For me, and for other fans of the original who spent 2012 ¬†on their […]

[ELECTRONIC] Nelly - "Ride Wit Me" (Viceroy "Jet Life" Remix)

#TBT. Throwback Thursdays have officially become ‘a thing’. But I’m here to break that mold, holding my very own Throwback Tuesdays two days before Thursday even knows what’s going on. Bringing back my 7th grade year in a big way comes Viceroy‘s fresh remix of Nelly‘s “Ride Wit Me”. The track comes as the 7th […]

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Tinashe ft. Schoolboy Q - "2 On" (TOKiMONSTA remix)

As I lay in bed, wrapping my thoughts for the day and getting ready for some zzz’s, I can’t help but crave the late night companionship so many others seem to find so easily. You know, your boo, the person you can cuddle up next to and fall asleep with. Luckily, I have music to […]

[CHILL/HOUSE] Flume – “Holdin On” (Win & Woo Remix) [Free Download]

[CHILL/HOUSE] Flume - "Holdin On" (Win & Woo Remix) [Free Download]

When it comes to getting in the zone, hanging out or relaxing, there’s hardly a better choice than Australian beat maker Flume. His intoxicating rhythms and rich, melodic textures create a perfect blend for chilled out escapism. And perhaps one of Flume’s most well known tracks for drifting off into the soundscape comes in the […]

[ELECTRONIC] John Newman – “Love Me Again” (Sound Remedy Remix) [Free Download]

[ELECTRONIC] John Newman - "Love Me Again" (Sound Remedy Remix)

It was a cold, drunken Saturday night as Sound Remedy and I rolled around downtown Chicago looking for a parking spot to the after hours shindig. Coming straight from his performance at The Bottom Lounge with Chicago duo Milk N Cookies, we were ready to hit the town, even if it was in his mom’s […]
