Serra da Estrela, Portugal. Sep. 2014 via TRAVELSTACHE
Let’s close out September with a host of new remixes to get you through the weekend, shall we? LA’s Elephante continued his trend of banging club remixes on Dirty South’s “Unbreakable”, while The Chainsmokers showed off their diverse production skills and crafted a laidback reworking of “Sway”. Elsewhere, DiscoTech’s increased in output is exactly what I hoped for as they reworked Route 94’s summer jam “My Love” and October’s Very Own (Drake’s label) got representation this week as Saint Pepsi funked up Drizzy’s “Worst Behavior” and Rainer + Grimm made Majid Jordan’s “A Place Like This” much more my style.
Favorite of the week comes from JayeL Audio favorite, DJ Double A. I love Double A’s eclectic mix of soul, funk, hip-hop and R&B-inspired productions, but his recent take on Schoolboy Q’s “Studio” was an addictive surprise. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Q’s album version, but Double A’s remix is more melodic with house rhythms.
Throwback remix of the week comes from Duck Sauce with their 2011 take on Chromeo’s “Hot Mess”. I listened to La Roux’s latest album on the way to work and was reminded of how much I liked Elly Jackson’s past collaboration with the Canadian duo. This remix makes me wish all three parties would make music together. #LADUCKEO #LACHROMESAUCE
