I despise major label contracted remixes. There’s something about knowing that an of touch person at a label grasping for relevancy reaches out to notable (actually cool) producers to remix their mindless top 40 radio smash. Just doesn’t sit well. That said, I’m a forgiving blogger and can read between the lines. Earlier this month Don Diablo dropped his “Burnin’ Up” remix via Casablanca Records. It was featured this morning on Oliver Heldens latest “Heldeep Radio” episode, and rightfully so.

This “Burnin’ Up” remix is indeed fire. Hats off to Don Diablo for bringing the heat.

Here’s a great find that I’m excited to share with you guys! FAIRCHILD, a band that has been making quite some noise in the indie rock scene, and in their native country, Australia, sent over the bonus track off their EP Sadako, a progressive melodic mix of “Stay Young,” which is sure to resonate for a lot ya’ll, with a message of youth, and capturing the moment. If you like epic indie rock, and bands like Coldplay, or Two Door Cinema Club, than this is a must listen!

House, Progressive House | Summer School – Control (Original Mix)

Summer School Control Summer School   Control (Original Mix)

Every once in a while, Spinnin’ Records surprises me and drops a track like ‘Control’ that reminds me why this label dominates the way it does. I don’t know Summer School but what he’s produced right here skillfully breaks the barrier between melodic progressive and mainstage house. The buildup preceding the break is aggressive, with bass so refined that when it cuts into the synth progression mid way you can feel your body vibrate. The drop is nothing less than energetic, and as the name of the track so cheekily points out, you are now under the control of the DJ. Kudos to Summer School – he’s a name that one should definitely keep their eyes on.

When I heard this track on The Magician’s “Magic Tape 47” I spit my Mountain Dew out and I wasn’t even drinking any. I scrambled relentlessly looking for the link. After a considerable search, I finally found it. Premiered on BBC Radio 1, NY’s Lion Babe enlisted Todd Edwards to remix “Jump Hi” featuring Childish Gambino. To say he smashed it would be doing him a disservice. It’s the best remix of them all. Incredible vibes. Huge chune. Stay up to date on what Todd is up next via his Soundcloud account.

Hats off to Todd and Echo Location Talent.

The Magician is silly good. He’s pulled another rabbit out of his hat with another installment of his “Magic Tape” series with volume 47 packed full of tracks that are incredible. In true Magician fashion, he hasn’t included a tracklist which makes hunting down these tracks all the more fun.

The Magician. So hot right now. The Magician.

House | Cleavage – Prove (Official Music Video)

Posted by on November 17, 2014

Cleavage’s “Prove” on Spinnin’ Records is a tune. Little known secret is that it’s been out for a good while. By good while I mean a year or two. That doesn’t matter, because the video dropped last week and it’s already amassed 400,000 plays, and deservedly so. I don’t understand the video one bit (probably because I’m an American simpleton) but this groovy disco-inspired single deserves all the spins.

It’s so hard to make a festival friendly banger without losing credibility. The line between cliche and timeless is extremely thin. (How Galantis does this is beyond me, but I digress.) Somehow, A-Trak has found a way to balance the two, creating “Push” featuring Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow fame. The result is truly unforgettable, as “Push” has the potential to break through not only in a dance space full of predictable anthems, but also on American radio as well. A-Trak. Andrew Wyatt. Fire flames.
