Sllash – “You” (Original Mix) + TLC – “Scrubs” (Remix)

Music for… blissing out to thoughts of sun-soaked days turning to sweat soaked night. The dry heat on your face of too much time outdoors. But most importantly, that beat you hear for the first time but instantly feels so welcome and comforting.

Location: Bucharest, Romania

Future: All kinds of funky soulful remixes here, like this great one of TLC.

Wild Party – “OutRight” + Carousel remix

Music for… people who enjoy big smiles, loose limbs, and friendly mosh pitting. Wild Party are one of the longest loved bands here at TBE and continue to be under appreciated. “OutRight” is just another example of their killer indie-pop prowess off their debut album Phantom Pop. Get into it and then get into Carousel’s remix for a sunnier rump shaking flip on things.

Location: San Antonio, TX

Future: Phantom Pop is out NOW yo.

Patrick Lite – “December” + Matt Simons – “Catch and Release” (Patrick Lite Remix)

Music for… people who have been waiting all week for Friday but before they can even think about socializing, or dancing, or even talking to any-damn-body, they need to chill F out before they FLIP! Enter Patrick Lite and his perfect last name (actually spelled Leijte)which tenderly eases the mind into gentler pastures that can sooth away the tension and get us ready to treat the weekend – and most importantly, ourselves – right.

Location: Netherlands

Future: Better blood pressure. More beautiful jams.

Fickle Friends - For You Ghost Beach Remix

Fickle Friends – “For You” (Ghost Beach Remix)

Music for… starting the weekend’s dance party a day early! Ghost Beach dial up the funk on Fickle Friends’ vocal powerhouse of a jam “For You”. Crank this one and really kick up the Xmas tree decorating festivities this year!

Location: Fickle Friends from Brighton, UK. Ghost Beach from Brooklyn.

Future: More jams like this coming from Ghost Beach’s label Crazy Heart Records.

Marcapasos – “Blown Job” + The Avener – “Fade Out Lines” (Marcapasos Remix)

Sounds like… a weird and wonderful trip through a demented forest of circus creatures suffering from Eggnog hangovers. And then the flute… Marcapasos leads with some odd sounds and I’m more than willing to follow.

Location:

Future: Dive into this remix below for some smoother grooves, and then his Spotify for more killer remixes and originals, all in their full non-snippet glory!

James Hersey – “Coming Over” (Filous Remix)”

Music for… slowly easing my ears back into the swing of life at home after a whirlwind week of trekking through Europe. It was a great time but I’m glad to be back and sharing music with you all again.

Location: Filous and James Hersey are both from Vienna, Austria, a city I actually didn’t visit last week.

Future: Keep an ear on young Filous. I’m sensing big things.

Sir Sly – “You Haunt Me” (Salda Remix)

I love me some Sir Sly but they can lean a bit dark and gloomy so cheers to Salda for kicking yup the grooves and adding a touch of sunshine. Even if it is just a fading ray of sunshine drifting over the mountains as daytime slowly slips away.

Rubblebucket – “Carousel Ride” (Body Language Remix)

Sounds like… Brooklyn buds Rubblebucket and Body Language are having a blast on tour if this remix is any indication! This “Carousel Ride” remix floats and creeps along in true Rubblebucket style before putting the ‘fun’ in ‘funky’ and blossoming into the synth groover we knew it would be.

Location: Across the USA!

Future: On tour now together! Plus check out the Chrome Sparks remix of “Sound of Erasing” below!

[MP3] Adrian Lux – “Teenage Crime” (Shèmce Remix)

Music for… whistling your way through the weekend with a smile on your face and not a care in the world. A skip in your step and a swing in your hip.

Location: Shèmce is Canadian.

Future: Winter descends on Canada. We all get more great summertime fantasy jams.

Pr0files – “Luxury” (STRAIGHT A Remix)

Sounds like… being seduced on the dance floor. Hard to tell if its the lights, the drinks, or the naked mannequin in the fog, but somehow the body is moving, grooving, and feeling all right.

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Future: The Luxury single is up for pre-order now and you get an instant download of TBE favorite “Call Yourself A Lover” when you order.

RAC – “Cheap Sunglasses” Ft. Matthew Koma (The Knocks Remix)

Music for… people who like a bit more grit on their RAC jams. The Knocks took “Cheap Sunglasses”  from the pool to the club and the song saw some things that changed it forever.

Future: RAC is bringing The Knocks on tour this fall and its gonna be badass to the max.  Read more

LANY – “ILYSB” (Woody’s Produce Remix)

Music for… falling in love over margaritas. Its Summertime and few know the erotic powers of citrus more than Woody’s Produce. The man ignores the So-Cal lime shortage, cooking “ILYSB” in its own juices and serving it up on tostadas at sunset.

Location: Los Angeles. Both.

Future: More Woody’s Produce Summer Citrus Remixes every week!

Mausi – “My Friend Has A Swimming Pool” + The Magician & Star Slinger Remixes

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t posted this song yet. Honestly, at first I thought it was kind of silly but then after listening a couple times (read: ten) I realized that what makes it silly is also what makes it so charming. “My Friend Has A Swimming Pool” is an undeniable summer jam and it is exactly the kind of track that I want to play as soon as I walk into a party. Mausi even snagged The Magician for a wobbly, club ready remix and Star Slinger for a more laid-back cut. Check them both out on their Soundcloud here.

Jessie Ware Cyril Hahn

Jessie Ware – “Tough Love” (Cyril Hahn Remix)

The masters of sexy good time music have combined forces to turn up the sexual heat so much that in 9 months there is an army of minions named after them to take over the underworld. Beware.
