More remixes for the weekend with returns of Remix Friday favorites like Shoe Scene Symphony, Oliver Nelson and Matoma. Aside from a Charlie Wilson sample and Bastille, the ladies inspired many producers to remix this week. I must say, I never pictured Tegan & Sara sounding so nice over a tropical-inspired production, but Matoma brings them there in danceable fashion. Bastille also gets the island rhythms treatment from Deep Chills and I could have imagined that pairing, but it works even better than imagined. Producer FACES proves that I’ll listen to just about any iteration of Karen Harding’s “Say Something”, but adjusts the tempo and house-flavored sound in a positive way as well.
Favorite of the week comes from the surprise return of French producer Yuksek with a jazzy take on Lana Del Rey’s “Brooklyn Baby”. The inspired remix keeps Lana’s sultry vocals at the forefront, but experiments with synth, hand claps and more for party-friendly results.
