“Atmosphere (Instant Party! Festival Remix)” by Kaskade

kaskade-1378498758

ATTENTION! If you have not heard this remix yet, you MUST listen to it now. Instant Party! released this insane remix about a week ago, and it has been hot on the blogs. It definitely isn’t for everyone, but if you like to run the electrotrap, then this song will be perfect for you. To be frank, Instant Party! hasn’t changed the song too much. Some tweaks here and there, some high hats, some 808′s, nothing crazy. However, these minor changes combine to create a great remix, which to me is better than the original. Enjoy.

“Affection” by $aturn

maxresdefault (3)

I have come across a lot of releases by $aturn all over the airwaves and interweb for the past few months, and I have and am witnessing his immense growth. The young producer grabbed my attention pretty quickly, but I had my doubts with such a new producer. To my delightful surprise, $aturn has become one of my favorite chilltrap artist, or in his own words, lovetrap artist. The most impressive part is that $aturn, or Myles Anderson, is only 15 years old. No wonder he has only been releasing music for the past 6 months. His ability to sample and his overall production quality is impressive at such a young age. Below are a bunch of my favorite $aturn tracks, including “Affection.” His remix of Cashmere Cat is quite incredible to me, especially near the end. Please check out his Soundcloud, just choosing a few songs was painful for me.

“The Mother We Share (Vanic Remix)” by CHVRCHES

Vanic adds a dope trap edit to CHVRCHES critically acclaimed track, “The Mother We Share.” CHVRCHES is one of my favorite new artists, and clearly I’m not the only one who feels that way, especially with the plethora of CHRVRCHES remixes that have been released. Enjoy the track.

“Help Me Lose My Mind (DallasK Bootleg)” by Disclosure ft. London Grammar

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 8.56.06 PM

I am a huge fan of the plethora of Disclosure remixes out there, and dallasK’s bootleg of “Help Me Lose My Mind” is one of the great ones. When I gave this bootleg its first listen, I was unimpressed by the beginning of it. It wasn’t bad, but it sounded like an unimpressive EDM song; melodic portion, quick build-up, hard drop, repeat. Upon hearing the second build-up and drop however, I realized that this bootleg is legit. DallasK does an incredible job of adding variation, in a good way, by subtly polarizing the first and second half of this song. The first half hits a bit harder than one would expect from dallasK, whereas the second half resembles a lot of dallasK’s previous work. If you are familiar with “Alienz,” or “Vice,” and compare them to this bootleg, you can easily hear similar chord progressions and effects that characterize dallasK’s style. Give the song one full listen and you will see what I mean. Enjoy.

“Basement Dweller Overture” by Lindsay Lowend

Lindsay Lowend is currently on a music production hiatus, but thats no reason to not share his great music. Lowend has released several great Mid-Tempo songs, and this is hands down my favorite. “Basement Dweller Overture” isn’t your typical electronic song. The transitions to different sounds and styles within the song are fluid and beautiful. It includes plenty of synth, but the amazing interlude that begins at 1:18 features a pleasing melody of string instruments and piano. To follow up after the interlude, Lowend gives the song a sick twist to complete the track. Give it a listen!

“The Night is Young (ft. Cherub)” by Big Gigantic

Big Gigantic and Cherub is a match made in heaven. My mind would be blown if they had a collaboration album, but before anything like that, some single track collaborations will do. Cherub has been growing in popularity with their catchy lyrics and funky style, and Big Gigantic simply keeps producing great music as time passes. Enjoy the track.
