Finals week is keeping me from writing a full synopsis of this week’s top remixes, but this batch has a bit of tropical house (Autograf), infectious rhythms (WMNSTUDIES, Disciples), deeper house (DiscoTech, Zac Samuel) and worthy updates of hip-hop and R&B hits (DJ Double A, Disgo, Viceroy). Philly’s Disgo wins this week’s favorite remix award with a much-improved reworking of what I would have previously called a lackluster Slum Village track. The well-paced, funk and rhythm production aligns with the recent Kaytranada beats I’ve loved over the past year.
