No time for an in depth preamble today, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of excellent remixes in this week’s edition of Remix Friday. When you see production from names like Solidisco, Urban Contact, Oliver Nelson, Le Youth, Sebastian Carter and The Colourist, the names really speak for themselves. Newcomers to RF like SoySauce and Hounded made instant impressions on their reworkings as well.
Favorite of the week comes from RF favorite Elephante. I’ve been blasting Diplo & Skrillex’s collaborative Jack U album since its release, but the rising West Coast producer released the first quality Jack U remix I’ve heard. Despite Justin Bieber’s presence, “Where Are U”‘s infectious hook got a boost of synth and progressive influence.
