Skit is at it again. This is an incredibly euphoric remix, I wasn’t expecting it to be so much more calmer and uplifting than his last few remixes. The vocals breaking in at the second half of the track was a great touch, loving all the Hip-Hop type music coming from Skit. Seems he has found a good place in music.

Ever since the surfacing of their first tune, Miskatonik, Carvar and Clock have been the talk of the town. Gaining all kinds of support from all of the big names, these guys went from nothing to something in a matter of weeks. To be honest I had never seen anything like it before, but after releasing their single for free it was signed to Firepower Records soon after. With that came some of the most unique and amazing remixes of the tune as well. We have seen some showings from Joe Ford showcasing what he is capable of, but this remix brings out the meaner side in him. When I first heard the preview to this remix my jaw dropped, and still does everyone time I do. The second drop gives me goosebumps like no other. MUST DIE! has been cranking tunes out left and right like it’s nobodies business the past few months. He is an endless library of tunes and this remix just proved that he is going to be creating some of the most unique music in 2013. I haven’t heard many succesful metal/dubstep fusion remixes of any tunes, but this one is easily the best. Also on this EP is another single from the duo called SYGYZY (good luck trying to pronounce this one). I wasn’t to amazed with this track, because it reminded me too much of Miskatonik, but nevertheless it’s still a good tune.

Cashmere Cat, for reasons other than being a fellow cat lover, is one of my absolute favorites right meow. I’ve been a fan of everything he’s been putting out so I was even more stoked when I got to indulge in an entire hour of his sweet sounds on this episode of Diplo & Friends radio. He does an astounding job of bouncing (literally, check the mattress squeaking motif) from hip hop to hot beats to trap and experimental noises and manages to keep the listener engaged throughout. Some highlights include his own personal tracks, Mirror Maru (2:55) and Kiss Kiss (18:20), throwbacks like the Men in Black theme (34:40), and a witty surprise in the middle of Justin Timberlake’s Señorita (9:50).
You can download this mixtape fo free, in addition to a selection of his bumpin remixes off his Soundcloud. Really though, you’ve gotta be kitten me if you don’t =^.^=

Every couple of months my Soundcloud is flooded with remixes of the same song. This month it’s a certain One Republic song, a few months ago it was of, although not to the same extent, a certain The Killers song. “Miss Atomic Bomb” has already been remixed fairly well so I was rather reluctant to post another remix of it. Though I figure it has been a few months so even if this one isn’t the best one you’ve heard, which it is mine, then you at least get to hear a different take on it. The atmosphere throughout is incredible, especially with the guitar during the chorus.

Arguably the most revered of the three Swedish House Mafia members, Axwell always makes it count when he attaches his name to a release in his incredibly strong discography. Recently he has been quiet on the release front, having not released official remixes (not mixes) or originals since 2011. He breaks that silence now with this remix of Edinborough based foursome Discopolis.
The Axtone headman takes a very different approach from the previously released DubVision remix, going for a somewhat unexpected 105 bpm downtempo style, keeping much of the original rock sound of the original, while imbuing it with his own soothing house flare. With countless unreleased tracks still to come from Axwell, we can only hope this means more will come soon.
