[Drum & Bass] Liquicity – Escapism Vol. 1

Escapism

Once in awhile I come across a production so perfectly crafted that I’m forced to let it speak for itself. Case in point, Liquicity’s Escapism Vol. 1. Officially released all the way back on February 17th, the entire album is finally available to stream via SoundCloud. If liquid drum and bass is your forte, then […]

[Drumstep/Drum & Bass] Koda – Staying (DotEXE Remix)

DotEXE

Here’s something a little out of the ordinary! Chill drumstep. Yes, you heard me correctly, it’s a real thing. When you hear the term “drumstep,” I can’t blame you for immediately thinking of big name producers like Figure, Terravita, & Dirtyphonics. However, this vibrant DotEXE reconstruction approaches the genre from an entirely different angle. Better yet, […]

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Lido Remix)

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers - "Ain't No Sunshine" (Lido Remix)

It’s dreary and depressing in Chicago. Spring is fighting for it’s life here, but it’s round 3 and winter is a tough motherfucker. Wait a second, let me check my calender… yup, it’s almost May, yet the cold, wet weather outside my window weaves a different tale of depression and apathy. I imagine it’s the […]

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Lorde – “Tennis Court” (Flume Remix)

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Lorde - "Tennis Court" (Flume Remix)

To say Flume‘s Coachella set was “eventful” may be the understatement of the summer. To quote Huffington Post, “sickest unreleased drop: Flume’s remix of Lorde‘s ‘Tennis Courts.’” I had similar feelings the first time I heard the track – my mind reeling in abject disbelief at the sounds coming through my speakers. Following a Twitter […]

[Drumstep] Astronaut – Rain (FWS Remix)

FWS

Ever since I began writing here at The Sights and Sounds, I’ve made it a point to give local EDM acts the exposure they deserve. Whether it be new Louis The Child, Manic Focus, or Stratus, we always seem to be right on the cutting-edge of the Chicago bass music scene. In keeping with that […]

[CHILL/TRAP] Duke Dumont - "Need U (100%)" (Black Boots Remix) [Free Download]

British producer/DJ Duke Dumont will be making a much anticipated stop in Chicago this weekend as he rounds out the rest of his North American tour. Probably best known for his hit single “Need U (100%)” featuring A*M*E – which was released more than a year ago, but which just peaked at the top of […]

[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 […]

[Dubstep] LAXX – Brainbug (MUST DIE! Remix)

MUST DIE!

Look people, I’m just going to set the record straight. MUST DIE! is my favorite dubstep producer on the planet! Additionally, his new remix of LAXX’s “Brainbug” has been resting comfortably in the #1 spot on the Beatport dubstep chart for the better part of the last week. After taking both of those crucial pieces of […]

[Dubstep] Slum Village – Fall In Love (Moody Good Remix)

Moody Good

This new track from Moody Good is just too grimy! You’re going to need to use a fire hose in order to clean off all the layers of muck left behind by his latest remix. It’s filthier than the inside of a garbage truck, more pungent than the foulest stench you’ve ever smelled, and downright disgusting […]

[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 […]
