Need something deep to help you wind down your summer nights? Well look no further than Rufus' single "Desert Night" remixed by LA-based producer Jesse Rose ! Staying true to the feel of the original, Jesse Rose decides to give "Desert Night" just a little bit more bounce and kick by adding in a hypnotic assortment of poignant reverb, heart-pounding bass, and dance-floor percussion! Ridiculously easy to listen to, this remix is set be released soon by label Sweat It Out! Make sure to buy it once it drops!
The hardest working man in the show-business is back once again! André Allen Anjos of RAC has a brand-new remix for us today, and it's of Joywave's single "Tongues," which features the vocals of Kopps (who resembles the voice of Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip). In his latest remix, Anjos has decided to put together quite the creative vocal arrangement in this one. Sounding like nothing we've heard from the producer before, RAC has managed to keep things fresh in what appears to be his umpteenth remix! I've concluded that there are only three sure things in life it [...]
As I introduce myself to the Upside Sounds community, I feel it's only right that I introduce an artist as well. I'm Nate...but that's enough about me. Jonas Haslam, better known by ' Jonas LR ,' is an 18 year-old producer from Leeds (UK). A short time back, he released a song that remains in my often played rotation: "Cockiness," a driving house / garage-esque song that plays nicely off a rather interesting vocal bit. "Better Location" has a similar theme, but adds a nice bit of a dub synth to bring the song to an excellent plateau. [...]
If you don't know who London Grammar are by now, you are slightly behind the curve. Having been featured on Disclosure's massive LP "Settle," the UK trio have just come out with their EP "Wasting My Young Years," that features remixes by the likes Kids of the Apocalypse, KDA, and Henrik Schwarz. Although I've enjoyed most of the edits of this release, my favorite by far has to be Star Slinger 's re-interpretation of the song! In my opinion, I feel that Star Slinger is always at his best when he decides to remix tracks of the [...]
Growing up, there wasn't a single school dance that didn't feature the legendary Blackstreet song "No Diggity." Now, the ever so prominent UK Duo Bondax have given me their fresh, yet perfectly Bondax-esque take, and it's a wonderful chune just in time for the summer. Take a listen here and download for free. Also be sure to check out the recently announced UK tour.
Working with Destiny's Dad and Aaron Lipsett, Irish producer Fion delivers "Pull," a quality garage tune. If the vocals sound familiar, it's because they're sampled from Monica and Brandy's 1998 R&B hit "The Boy Is Mine." Fion sweetens the deal by offering a free download of the track off of his Facebook page in exchange for a "like."
UK songstress Marika Hackman recently came out with her debut mini-album "That Iron Taste" not too long ago. With songs such as her original "Bath Is Black," I would say that she made a good impression on me with her first record. For those who haven't listened to it, the release also includes a remix from Devon producer Hackman (of no relation) as well. Already a fan of Marika's version, Hackman has managed to make me love the song even more by coming out with this free-download. Strangely, in his latest work, Hackman has chosen not [...]
Freddie Joachim of Mellow Orange just came out with a brand-new remix today! Although he released two versions of the remix today, I will only be sharing with you guys the one that I feel is easily the best! Title "remix deux," Joachim has decided to reconstruct the song and give it a noticeably more hip-hop vibe! Sounding like something the likes of Kaytranada would put together, Joachim's remix of this song is ridiculously smooth and almost forces the listener to stop whatever they're doing and start grooving! Filled with a pleasing assortment of horns, drums, and head-nod worthy bass! [...]
The Norwegian mastermind, better known as Todd Terje , has returned to us today with a brand-new release titled "Strandbar!" Consisting of a total of three tracks, the producer has taken the lead song from the EP and has decided to make three versions of it: "samba," "disko," and another one simply called "bonus." You can listen to all of them in their full entirety below. Although I haven't had the time to get comfortable with any of the songs, I have a strong feeling that my favorite of the bunch has to be Mr. Terje's "disko" re-interpretation. The [...]
Relying on a sample of Bobby Caldwell's classic "Open Your Eyes," Saux has put together a brand-new original titled "Show You The Light!" Completely free for download, the Netherlands producer crafts a song that's simply screams "feel-good vibe!" Made for easy-listening and relaxing times, Saux's latest effort was made for this time of year! Get your speakers, go outside, and let these tranquil melodies wash over you like a gentle summer's breeze...
Don't know what "Orchestral Crunkwave" is? Well, I didn't either until I heard Flume's official remix of Disclosure's song "You & Me." Although we haven't heard the Australian producer use strings in such a way before, he shows no fear in this latest track. We've always dreamed of these two producers collaborating, and today is a very special day. The energy Flume releases is something we all needed in our summer routines. It peaks intensely and falls beautifully. Crunk it up ladies and gents.
Discotexas return with Mirror People’s sterling ‘Kaleidoscope’ featuring a limited color vinyl release and a brand new remix from the excellent Psychemagik . Completely reshaping the original, the UK duo have taken Mirror People's "Kaleidoscope" and turned into something unrecognizable (in a good way of course). Removing the vocals and incorporating their own array of warm-sounding bass, sequenced synth, and a series of orchestral melodies, Psychemagik have created an astonishingly addictive tropical vibe that's remarkably uplifting and quite intoxicating! Always known for their heady tunes, fans of the duo won't be disappointed after hearing this sublime remix!
A while ago, I remember Flume posting on his facebook page that he had just finished making his new "Hyperpardise." I didn't know what that meant at the time, but all I could guess was that he had just finished another banger that we'd be listening to for several months to come. In retrospect, if I had to guess what track he was talking about, I'd have to say it's probably this edit that he uploaded on soundcloud today. Taking Rustie's hit song "Slasherr," Flume has decided to keep the core of the song intact while choosing to [...]
Music is even better with video clips! In this 28th video roundup, we gathered videos of artists from various genres, coming from releases we strongly suggest you to check out. Enjoy! Joe Goddard from the band Hot Chip is back with the song "She Burns", featuring vocals from Mara Carlyle. It comes with a video clip that was just revealed today! The track is taken from Goddard's upcoming EP "Taking Over". French producer Para One released last year the [...]
I don't know how we didn't catch this when it came out last week, but Spanish producer Pional has recently put together a remix for South African artist Petite Noir! This is honestly the first time I've heard Petite Noir voice, but I have to say, I'm completely awestruck by it! Although the music comes form South Africa, a music scene that I'm severely ignorant of, it sounds quite familiar upon first listen. For instance, similarities between his music and artists such as Twin Shadow, the Drums, and TV on the Radio come to my attention immediately.Such a peculiar blending [...]
To understand the musical genius that is Dream Koala , make sure to listen to Superpoze 's single "Pavane" before and after he got his hands on it! This will literally blow your mind! Before: After: Woah...now that's a REMIX! If you want to buy it, simply follow this link right here !
Whenever the XX come out with an album, you can be assured that an unrelenting series of remixes will follow the release 1 to 2 years after it comes out. But don't misinterpret that statement as a complaint, because I'm actually quite happy with the fact that the band's music gets remixed so often, especially when artists such as Maya Jane Coles are carrying out the work. In her latest edit, the London producer has decided to alter the XX's "Fiction," and cover the song with an ensemble of deep house melodies that manage to give it a [...]
Set to embark on their summer tour of 2013, Hot Chip have decided to release a one-off single titled "Dark & Stormy" to get some buzz surrounding their upcoming shows! "Dark & Stormy" will be available for purchase on July 22nd and it will be paired up with a new version of In Our Heads' "Look at Where We Are", featuring Tori and Reiko Kudo.
UK producer Lone returns today with a brand-new single titled "Airglow Fires!" As per usual, Lone keeps everything sounding quite lush, with his use of rhythmic high-hats, dribbling synths, and growling chord progressions that seem to hell-bent on making you bob your head as ferociously as possible!
Almost a year after the single was released, I believe that I have finally found my favorite remix of Two Door Cinema Club's hit "Sleep Alone!" Coming from the Swiss duo known as Mercury , this track manages to win big in creative points in my opinion. Choosing to completely shift down TDCC's vocals, while incorporating a tribal assortment of their own, Mercury have changed the entire feel of the original by turning it into a dance track that's noticeably deeper, more eclectic, and down-right more enjoyable to listen to! Simply put, Mercury's remix is a must-download for the [...]
