Klangstof – “Hostage (Shallou Remix)” // Jocelyn Tsaih

There are different types of remixes – you can throw a four-on-the-floor beat on something to make it dancefloor-ready, or you can totally reimagine the source material. This remix is one of the latter kinds. Shallou slims down the original piece considerably, removing most familiar elements save for a handful of lyrics, and passes the song through his distinct brand of downtempo electronica. It’s made for hammocks, pool floats, or any tranquil, buoyant situation you can imagine.

Float even higher with Shallou’s track “Doubt”, as featured on VINYL MOON Volume 003: Halftone.

Babe – “Baby You’re Right” (Touch Tone Remix)

As if Babe’s original wasn’t catchy enough, Touch Tone has done the remix equivalent of the hottest person at the club grabbing your hand and dragging you onto the dance floor. Once your head stops spinning you realize your having a damn good time and don’t much care that you left your half full beer at the bar. The glint in this hottie’s eyes says there are bigger things at stake…  Read more

Vindata – “All I Really Need” Feat. Kenzie May (Madrad remix)

Just when I thought I was losing all love for remixes I stumbled across this. At first I didn’t know it was a remix, I was simply transfixed by that floating groove that breaks down beautifully before sweeping itself up and shuffling right along. Leaving me clamoring for the repeat button. So damn good. Then I found out it about the original which I’ve included below if you somehow missed it like me. But the real magic is in this remix with less than 1000 plays on Soundcloud. Perhaps one of my favorite songs of the year. But who is Madrad…? Read more

[PREMIERE] Sun Drug – “Wildman” (Val Fleury x Allen Blickle Remix)

We’ve heard the beautiful grit of Sun Drug before but now Val Fleury and Allen Blickle have given single “Wildman” a bit of a hot rock back massage, getting it limber and lose for a night under the stars. You shouldn’t worry about this Wildman being let loose on the dance floor as much as you should fear your own inner wildman when you get to bellowing out the woooo ooohs at top volume after a few. Tread cautiously. Move ferociously. And get into the original below!

[PREMIERE] LANY – “4EVER!” (Shoffy Remix)

If the original “4EVER!” was a memory of a young love fading into memories, then Shoffy’s throbbing sunset rework is waking up from a late afternoon nap and trying to cling to a dream of that love. As you prepare for a night out, you can’t shake the feeling from the dream. You know the images are fading fast so you try and savor every flash that echoes in your mind.
