★ The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE
♬ The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE (Elephante Remix)

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…

♬ Pharrell – Happy Feat. The Notorious B.I.G. (DJ Rob Dinero
Remix)
★ Porter Robinson – Sea of Voices (RAC Mix)
♬ Mat Zo – Lucid Dreams (The M Machine Remix)
♬ Coldplay – Magic (Guilliano Bootleg)

♬ 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.

Sync Deep

Recently fallen hard for these deep house tracks, both remixes and originals. Perfect for cold, moody, weekday commutes, these beats deliver soothing relief from crying babies, flat tires, and the rest of life’s occasional crap.

I often cringe at the idea of classic songs being remixed, but once in a while one comes along that knocks your socks off. The Golden Pony had the ingenuity to introduce a disco beat to “Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel, transforming a somber tune into one that is upbeat and groovy… Bravo! Also, love the French Bulldog.

♬ Simon & Garfunkel – Sound of Silence (The Golden Pony Remix)

Their remix of “Fuck the Pain Away” by Peaches combines deep house and funk beautifully. I’ll also take the excuse to be obsessed with this high school throwback all over again!

I had the pleasure of meeting Trevor Bones of Gotta Dance Dirty when he spun at Harlot in San Francisco last weekend. When asked for his favorite producers, he recommended Tchami, and I can definitely see why. Tchami is a Parisian producer whose tracks have a specific sound and energy that I can only describe as unique, addicting and dance-inducing. The lack of information on him makes him seem a bit mysterious but I have no doubt that this is one cool dude. If you go to his Janet Jackson remix on SoundCloud and click “Filet Mignon” you will download a secret mixtape…awesome.

Shadow Child and Kry Wolf have more in common than just their wonderfully emo-sounding names. They are both UK-based and recently started their own label together called Food Music. Shadow Child and Kry Wolf as separate ingredients are great, but mix them up and you get something gourmet. “So High” by Shadow Child is such a heavy track that it makes me giddy. I want to listen to this track in a room full of huge speakers.

♬ Shadow Child – So High
♬ Zoë Xenia & Cari Lekebusch – Good Love Sweet Love (Shadow Child remix)

Kry Wolf has become a force to be reckoned with in the underground UK scene over the last couple of months. There is such a wide range in their style of music that they have something for everyone to enjoy.

♬ Py & Kadabrah – Black Magic (Kry Wolf remix)
♬ Shadow Child – 23 (Ft. Tymer) (Kry Wolf VIP)

13-11-28 dirty south

After a seriously amazing friend scored us tickets to a very intimate preview of Dirty South‘s new album “Speed of Life”, my faith in house music has been completely renewed. Booming basslines met emotional vocals to delicately pattern the beautiful melodies developed by Mr. Roganović (read: Serbian-Australian hotness). Enjoy the shit out of these two — happy ravin’ Thanksgiving!

20-year-old Aussie deej hits money again with his latest, a beautiful, instrument-filled remix of “Atlas Hands”. Thomas Jack has really grown into his own with these happy-go-lucky, funkier pop songs. Each new remix has an unexpected twist to it that gives it a smooth, beachy feel… great stuff :)

Remix)
