Ohmygod, happy throwback-Thursday. Is it, like, an official holiday yet? Well this first one hardly needs an introduction (check it — 45 million views!). From our NYC-conquering friends Alex & Drew of The Chainsmokers, infamous since they played their ironic hit at LIV nightclub, comes this gloriously inspired first mix. Can’t wait to see them again this Friday aboard the Bounce Boat! Here are some others to jog your memory and take you back…

Remix)

♬ Duke Dumont – I Got U (feat. Jax Jones)
♬ Duke Dumont – I Got U ft. Jax Jones (Bondax Remix)

There is just something so infectiously happy and warm about hit Brit Duke Dumont (né Adam Dyment), and it’s not just the superfun virtual safari he goes on in his video. The fellow Brits of Bondax heard it too, and quickly produced this glorious remix, somehow even more upbeat…! So don’t pout just because you’re not in Miami dancing to the best DJs in the world under a gloriously hot sun and are instead locked up high in your city tower while the coast is smacked by a rainstorm…

Ok, you can pout a little.

Toronto-based Vanic just remixed our favorite do-over of Bon Iver’s classic “Skinny Love”, by Birdy… the perfect cure to a stormy week.

♬ DCUP – Don’t Be Shy (feat. Mereki)

I love the unique and wacky videos put out by mister DCUP. Best known for the “We No Speak Americano” collab with Yolanda Be Cool (which, by the by, is at over 40 million views on YouTube, just FYI), DCUP, or Melbourne-based Duncan MacLennan, has established himself among the dance scene with consistently impressive upbeat singles and remixes, and original videos like this one to back ‘em up. Have a weird, dancey, blue-haired weekend!



you had me at “Coldplay”

♬ Coldplay – Midnight
★ Coldplay – Midnight (Urban Contact Remix)

I will never forget the first music video I saw on MTV. I was standing in our family room, ready to give up on whatever was on, ’til the soft strokes of “The Scientist” suddenly rang forth persistently from the set. Chris Martin had appeared, walking in reverse, traversing the stage of some faraway land, and my love for Coldplay became solidified in those four-odd minutes.

It has yet to abate, especially with this latest, a Bon Hiver-esque, smoky nighttime song released as a preview for their May album. I waited out the first week in hopes of a masterful rework to spring up, and it is Urban Contact I found success: an Adrian Lux type synth and sharp snare beat. Killin’ it.

One of the best things about living in San Francisco are the frequent performances from Dirtybirders. Justin Martin and Nick Monaco threw an epic dance party to a basement packed with diehard fans at Monarch this past weekend.  Martin’s music flawlessly combines melody while still maintaining that filthy deep house sound.  It’s the small nuances that he adds to his tracks, like birds chirping, that make his sound unfailingly out of the ordinary. Some of my favorite tunes from the night were as follows:

★ Ultraista – Small Talk (Four Tet Remix) (Justin Martin
Rework)
♬ Rachel Row – Follow the Step (Justin Martin Remix)
♬ Mike Monday – Grace (Justin Martin Remix)
