To quote Smokey from Friday, “its Friday, you ain’t got no job and you ain’t got shit to do!” Well, that might not be entirely true. You do have more remixes to inhale in preparation for the weekend.
You know it is going to be a great weekend when Brazil’s The Twelves crawl out from under a rock to craft a chill remix of ON AN ON’s “It’s Not Over”. If you need something a bit more upbeat, Lost Kings, Elephante and Coucheron added more pulsing synth rhythms to their production discographies courtesy of Gorgon City, Phoebe Ryan and Noonie Bao templates. While many producers are rushing to remix Major Lazer’s latest releases, producer Paige chose to remind people of the greatness of 2013’s “Get Free” with a buzzy remix. Elsewhere, Tontario gave Tom & Hills’ “Lighters” a extremely pleasing nu-disco/tropi-house take and I had to close out this week’s mix with The Chainsmokers’ sunset ready take on “Overload”. Its just too appropriate for your weekend night beach party.
Mozambo put up a good fight in almost earning this week’s top remix of the week. Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You” has aged well, but the French producers injected the classic with a bit of melodic house vibes. The true favorite of the week came from Jerry Folk and his excellent rework of Oh Wonder’s enchanting single “Lose It”. The original was already a contender for my top song of 2015, but Folk deftly expounded upon the sparse framework with a hypnotic, danceable groove.
