For many people, this week in April is one of the most laidback times of the year. It's a time that goes hand in hand with the celebration of chill music, so look no further for those mellow tunes you desire. Dojo number 34 kicks off with a amazingly funky beat from Lindsay Lowend , released under his alias Bib . 'Take my Heart' is a jam, plain and simple, packed with catchy vocal elements and magical chords to be consumed in high doses to leave you smiling. We go from an [...]
Je vous ai parlé de l'album de remixes de Ellie Goulding deux articles plus tôt avec le remix Without Your Love par l'américain Amtrac . Je réouvre la parenthèse pour également vous faire découvrir un autre remix de cet album. Il s'agit de celui de Kastle , pour le morceau My Blood . Très différent de celui de Amtrac, on retombe ici dans l'univers uk bass du producteur de San Francisco avec un tempo lent et des voix pitchés, typiques du genre. Pour écouter l'album de remixes en entier, [...]
Un petit peu de retard pour celui-là mais ça méritait un post dans tous les cas. L'américain Amtrac , qui nous en a mis plein les oreilles avec son très bon edit de Gold , revient à nouveau avec un excellent remix, ce coup-ci pour mademoiselle Ellie Goulding et le morceau Without Your Love . On retrouve les sons typiques de Amtrac, deep avec toujours un superbe travail sur les voix qui donne une tout autre dimension à l'original. Ce remix fait parti d'unx mixtape composés de remixes de son dernier [...]
Suicide Sundaes - Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen, Sunday is back. Greg is here to bring you the week's dirty servings, and some old favorites through a throwdown-throwback to simpler times. A time when bangers were big, remixes were bigger, the bassline bled, and we didn't care about anything as long as came in kicking and left screaming. This week I'm joined again by Thomas Groutars , and we've got a rather large post for you. With tracks ranging from 80's inspired synth driven electro to hard glitchy borderline electro trash, we [...]
If you're a fan of the current crop of house producers making waves right, you either know who Amtrac is or you should learn the name immediately (DAD can help with your primer ). The line between good house and bad house can be almost imperceptible. At times, warm bass and persistent drums can hit just right, rising and falling at perfect pace to create hypnotic dance floor burners; at others, those same elements can form a shapeless, incessant sprawl that threatens to never end. Amtrac, luckily, finds his production falling in the former category far more [...]
I'm not sure if I should be depressed that this video for 'I Need Your Love', a Calvin Harris (pictured above) and Ellie Goulding collaboration, already has over 3 million views after just 5 days at the time I write this. Either way, it's a decent tune to groove to if you're getting ready to go out tonight. Watch it below. Click here to view the embedded video.
Editors’ Selections is an opportunity for your favorite Dancing Astronaut contributors to talk about some of the music they’re listening to that we might not always get an opportunity to post about from week to week. Sometimes it’s out there, sometimes it’s obscure, but you’ll always get a peek into what we’re loving behind closed doors.

It's that time of year again. Considering it's been one helluva week, all we can say is thank the mighty omnipotent powers that be that this particular week ends on #fourtwenty. Time to put the kids to bed and pull out the trees because today it's all about caring less than you ever will on any other day. Like we said: it's been one crazy week. This is a joyous time when everyone comes together to share a common interest, using it to enhance everything around them. A time when Mary Jane pops some cherries and shines down upon the [...]
Amtrac continues his rise to the forefront of electronic music, this time remixing Ellie Goulding 's "Without Your Love." The original song begins with a brief but grandiose piano intro, before yielding to an urgent drumline and Ellie's unmistakable vocals. Amtrac's take adds pitched down vocals, a buzzing undercurrent and a steady kick drum, transforming "Without Your Love" from a sweeping power pop song to a darker, late night dance track. Several of Amtrac's distinct touches are present - glitchy vocal splices, rollicking bass synths and steady buildups that give way to grooving dance beats. Nike [...]

/ / / / Kastle has been working hard as of late in preparation for the release of his debut album on Symbols Recordings next week (album art pictured above). In addition to a few of the album singles, Kastle has recently released a slew or remixes and originals-some on soundcloud, some a little harder to find. The most recent is a slow and mellow remix of Ellie's track "My Blood." This remix is particularly pleasing because of the seamless transition points from dark and dancy to heavy, ambient trap-a testament to his [...]
Star Slinger is Mr Dependable when it comes to remixes - they're always on point, always fresh, and most importantly, always get your bloody feet moving. The Manchester based producer has already dabbled successfully in so many different styles, and this time he reaches into his magic hat and Ta-Da! We're back in the 90s and Ellie Goulding's laying down some vocals on a thumping, UK garage influenced late night rave tune. The remix, which you can stream below, features on the Halcyon Remix Album, which was released in collaboration with Nike.

Nu-disco wizard Brett Ewels, better known to the world as Louis La Roche , is considered one of the best "French touch" artists today, and he's not even French! His newest release is a funky remix of I Need Your Love , Calvin Harris' huge collab with Ellie Goulding ; if you like groovy disco, you need to play this song immediately. Louis' remix features a fantastic combination of future funk, '80s synths, glitched-out vocals, and glossy nostalgia-aside from Ellie's voice, there really isn't much here that isn't completely original. If you listen [...]

As you may have heard, Empire of the Sun is returning with a new album this June, and it's about damn time. Empire of the Sun put out some great stuff that got a lot of attention back in '09 and '10, and I've been waiting for more brilliant tracks like We Are the People or Walking on a Dream ever since. It seems we might be getting just that. I know some of the readers here are friends with me on Facebook, in which case you know that I'm a big Ellie [...]
Our favorite Kentucky native Amtrac proves yet again that he's a producer on the rise and one to watch out for. His diverse production style - ranging from nu-disco and deep house - makes it difficult to pinpoint a constant sonic persuasion in his outputs. For his remix of Ellie Goulding's "Without Your Love" Amtrac ventures into the house world, distorting Ellie's vocals into near oblivion and incorporating the kind of bouncy bass that's easy to get addicted to. The track comes to us as part of a Nike-sponsored "Halcyon" remix package available as a free download via Interscope [...]

Need I say more? I didn't think so...have a listen for yourself. Follow Star Slinger on Facebook | Twitter | Soundcloud you might also like: Listen: [...]
