I’ve been following LMC, or Liam Mcalister, on Soundcloud for a long time now and I’m becoming very impressed with his progress. The young New Zealand native has just gotten smoother and smoother. This remix of Willow Smith feat. SZA’s “9” is outstanding. Grab some quality headphones for this one everyone. The bass line will blow you away. Simple, yet elegant, LMC’s remix is mellow and sophisticated. Trap beats dance over the bass to compliment the beautiful vocals. If this track is your style you can snag it for free right on Soundcloud.

Immediately after hearing this track, I knew it had to be written up. I’ve been in a bit of a writing drought, and this track sparked my inspiration back up. That’s got to be saying something! Illenium, from Denver, brings us this dubstep remix of “Shark” by Wonder Wonder today. I thoroughly enjoy the vocals from the original track, and the new twist from Illenium. It’s definitely melodic dubstep and clearly shows experience in production. I would go as far as to call this “chillstep” – but with a little bit clearer structure to the song. The drops are smooth and the lead will be stuck in your head all day! Download it for free below!

It’s not often that I’ll post a song that came out over two days ago, but this one is worth it. “Please Don’t Hurt Yourself” by Diversa under the collective Hegemon is stunning. The emotional intensity of this song is obvious, and beautifully demonstrated. I have a soft spot for songs with well written, unique piano sections, and this track has them throughout. Chords ring over rocking synths and gentle percussion and take away the listener’s mind. Grab it for free!

If you’ve been looking for some stunning vocals, you’ve come to the right post. Echos’ Remix of “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith is absolutely enchanting. Gentle, yet pricise vocals guide the poppy synths and soft beats along. The lyrics to this track are emotional, in the original and this cover version. Echos really took the vocals and made them sound unique. Overall the vibe is soft and has a dreamy atmosphere. Lucky for us, you can grab it for free!

As if an Odesza song isn’t cool enough on it’s own, here are six fantastic remixes of “Say My Name”. Most of the remixes on this album keep the upbeat vibes, and added their own flare. My personal favorite is the Emancipator remix because of they way the vocals were used and the rhythm. One remix that stands out from the others is the Ganz remix. It has more of an upfront feel to it, and more pronounced synths. All of these remixes are free on Soundcloud, and if you haven’t already, you can get Odesza’s album “In Return” on Itunes.

This piece is absolutely beautiful. It was too hard to pass up. Mr FijiWiji produced another skilled melodic dubstep track, and this time teamed up with Tritonal as well. The piano in “Seraphic” coveys so much emotion as the chill synths ring underneath. The drops include stabbing low synths and an eerie atmosphere. Thrilling and unique, you’ve got to press play. If this ambient track is your style you can find it for purchase on Itunes.

If you’ve been following Tigerblood, you’ll see that there’s been a consistent pattern of bangers released one after another. This Coldplay remix keeps a little bit of the original’s vibe, with a whole new twist. Horns and trap beats deck out this chill remix with style. I’m usually not a fan of the typical trap horns, but in Tigerblood’s case I’m willing to make an exception seeing as how they were used in a unique way. Dreamy and floaty, this remix is a another to reason to keep an eye on Tigerblood. You can grab this one for free on Facebook.
