This week’s edition features a slew of producer’s we haven’t heard from in a minute. Armand Van Helden took a break from Duck Sauce to spice up Sam Smith, while Woodys Produce continued his excellent Summer Citrus series with a take on CHVRCHES’ “Gun”. Matoma has been all over my playlists this month and for good reason (see “Old Thing Back”, “Hold On Be Strong vs. Big Poppa”). His latest release is a summer house remix of Hedegaard’s “Happy Home” and perfect for your next beach event.

I haven’t posted anything from Bee’s Knees since their addictive remix of “My Gun”, but their spin on Shift K3y’s “I Know” is addictive as it gets. The slowed down tempo and addition of vocoder/talk box at the end made for a worthy reworking and earns top honors for the week.
