Tropical influence has been the name of the Remix Friday game this summer. Tobtok proved to be the perfect antidote for John Newman’s “Come and Get It” with all sorts of summer grooves to share. Lost Kings picked up where they left off with their rework of Gorgon City’s “Coming Home” and pushed Echosmith’s “Bright” into chill territory. Even Fare Soldi successfully gave Dr. Dre and 2Pac a bit of disco with tropical percussion.
However, there were plenty of other house influence on this week’s playlist. Speaker of The House lived up his name with a deep and bass-filled remix of Jason Derulo’s radio jam “Want To Want Me”. JackLNDN updated SIVIK’s “U Got” with groove-oriented house and both Bee’s Knees and Eau Claire respectively spiced up Miami Horror and Husky tracks with nu disco vibes. Last, but not least, Fred Falke’s work is self-explanatory and he did great Fred Falke-type things with Will Young’s “Thank You”.
There were many contenders for top remix of the week, but the champ ended up being Hitimpulse. You are likely still blasting the Berlin producer’s take on Ed Sheeran’s cover of “Coco” (21 million plays on Soundcloud!). This time, Hitimpulse reworked Xavier Dunn’s excellent cover of Rae Sremmund’s “Not Type” with bassy bursts and subtle synth for another hypnotic hit.
