Karboncopy is back at it, this time in the form of a free remix. This remix was originally in the remix competition for J-1’s “Sea Chords” but for some reason didn’t win. Seeds are planted then they grow into flowers and then are given to women so really it’s just a stepping stone for the guys. If you think about that long enough, I’m sure it’ll make sense. They say this is one of their favorites and that’s believable because it’s one of their best. The quality of their productions is always getting better and they are now consistently putting out great tracks.

Think about the first time a sweet little something special graced the inside of your mouth. They come in a variety of colors and even flavors, but we all know that there is clearly one better than the rest. That’s right, the latest song by No Limits is comparable in quality to an orange Starburst. While not the best flavor, it still holds its own and makes for a pleasurable experience if you feel like chewing something for a minute and a half. If for some reason this metaphor isn’t doing it for you, I’ll word it in a way that’s not stupid. This is probably not their best song but it is still good and worthy of a listen. Even when they make something that doesn’t top their previous release, it is still of a high enough quality that it deserves to be heard.

Lost kings have been two of my favorite producers as of late. Their remix of “Latch” is amazing and remains one of my favorite songs at the moment. Their follow up to that, a remix of Local Native’s “Black Balloons” is equally as impressive. The rolling melody after the slow, piano filled bridge makes for such a powerful drop. As I’ve said in my previous post for them, these two guys are ones to watch.

I can’t quite remember how I first came across Gryffin or how the heck that sesame seed got in my washroom, but ever since I first heard this song yesterday, I’ve been thinking about it sometimes. The vocals are great and the production is much better than the original. It has a chill, yet uplifting feel to it. It is pretty much the musical equivalent of driving around late at night in residential areas way too fast and with a sick exhaust, but in a good way. Free download of course.

Oh Honey’s “Be Okay” was a big success, garnering well over a million plays on Youtube and 750k plays on Soundcloud. Matt DiMona has also had success recently, with his last two tracks combining for over 400k plays. His remix of Nikyee Heaton’s “Bad Intentions” was fantastic and is what really put him on the map. He has put his own spin of, as he calls it, feel good house on the original and it turned it great. Perfect for pool parties, as people always say, or even for watching people walk by your house, if you’re into that sort of thing. While you wait for the EP containing this remix to be released tomorrow, you can enjoy the stream exclusively below.

Since Kygo and Thomas Jack made tropical house popular, more and more artists are joining them and their style of music. Bearson, an 18 year old from Norway is one of those artists and he is producing music at the same level as those two. Chilled bass, soothing vocals and of course that tropical vibe is what his latest remix consists of and it is fantastic.

Progressive house music, but even more so the performance of the everyday dishwasher are two things that I am not easily impressed by. Galantis’ “You” was huge and none of the official remixes could better it. Get ready to be impressed by a new duo out of Vancouver by the name of Young Bombs who have come as close as anyone will to topping the original. They said they wanted to add a “hopeful, uplifting vibe” to contrast the dark tone of the original and they have succeeded in doing so. My one criticism is that it is not mixed/mastered as well as it could be, but for their first release, it is understandable. With their debut track as great as this, there is sure to be good things to come for this Canadian duo.
