“Morning Sun (Dillon Francis Remix)” by Strange Talk

strange talk dillon francis morning sun pumpthebeat.com

Dillon Francis just surprised everyone with this remix. According to Francis, this remix is “the happiest remix [he's] ever made in [his] life.”

After giving it an initial listen, this statement seems fairly accurate to me. Full of uplifting chords and melodies, the track emits a “good vibes” feel. The track will be released through Wind-Up Records and will be available for purchase tomorrow (Sept. 23).

Release Date: September 23, 2014

“Begin Again” by Knife Party

Knife Party is slowly making their way towards their album release. So close, yet so far. Regardless of the album release date, Rob and Gareth are holding us over with leaks through their social media pages.

“Begin Again” is the newest leak from the album, and there’s definitely a different vibe to the track. We get vocals from Rob Swire, which bring us back to his Pendulum days. And to focus more on the differences in the track, you’ll notice that there’s more of a progressive feel to the track. The melody carries the track, and usually, we’re interrupted with the fast cuts and dubstep-influenced synth sounds. An awesome switch up track from the usual KP sounds.

“Fly” by San Holo


The intergalactic Jedi of future trap, San Holo, is back with a 4 song EP that includes this gorgeous melodic record, “Fly.” Also on the EP is his earlier breakout single, “Hiding,” which was released earlier this summer by the mysterious French collective Point Point on their “Filet Mignon Pt. II” collection. This kid’s sound is super unique, borrowing influences from a variety of styles such as 8-bit, trap, and jersey club to create a soundscape that does justice to the EP’s name, Cosmos. Grab the free download for the track above and download the whole EP for $1 here.

“3005 (JAUZ’s Future Remix)” By Childish Gambino

3005 was easily my favorite song off of Gambino’s most recent album, Because the Internet, and it had a pretty solid lyric video as well. Since the track’s release nearly a year ago, I had yet to find a remix that did it justice.

That all changed today. JAUZ – the upcoming Deep House/Trap/Bass king (yes, I just crowned him) has released his take on Donald Glover’s straightforward love “ballad.” JAUZ does a brilliant job of not only staying true to the original but also supplying slight additions in the form of filters, chops, synths, and of course, bass. This remix is classified as Future Bass, a newer genre that combines Drum & Bass with decidedly ‘futuristic’ sounds and some elements of Trap – give it a shot and listen to something new!

My hat goes off to Mr. Vogel, as always, for this super solid remix + free download.
