“Hold Still” by Slow Magic

Slow Magic first caught my ear when they remixed Flight Facilities song “Stand Still.” “Hold Still,” like their remix of FF, is a great tune. Just plug in the headphones and listen to “Hold Still” on the train home from work, in the library, or wherever you are, it will chill you out.

“Man x Woman (GANZ Edition)” by Full Crate x Mar

When Full Crate and Mar released “Man x Woman” earlier this year, I became enamored with their music, which is  rooted in their home country, Amsterdam. The slight intricacies of their tracks made their music unique and timeless. In the back of my mind, I didn’t want a good “Man x Woman” remix to be released, so that it could stand alone. GANZ quickly changed my mind. I feel like GANZ and I have a similar taste in music, like many of us, because he always seems to remix songs that I love. Not only that, he makes his imprint into the song, and twists it in a delightful way.

“In Silence,” by Octave Minds

Octave Minds, a collaboration between the producer Boys Noize and composer Chilly Gonzales, has officially released their first single. “In Silence” is a relaxing tune that combines Gonzales classical piano style with Boys Noize electronic background. If you recall, Gonzales recently worked with Daft Punk for the song “Within,” which is featured on Random Access Memories. Octave Minds is set to release their debut album this September. Huge shout out to Boysnoize Records for a good move on this collaboration.

“Listen” by icekream

What’s a summer without some icekream? A bad one. Icekream has released some great tracks lately, and I’m loving the different sounds and styles mixed in to “Listen.” But I shouldn’t lie to myself, I’m starting to become a trap fiend.

“Lionhearted (Giraffage Remix)” by Porter Robinson

Giraffage dropped a POWERFUL remix of “Lionhearted,” by Porter Robinson, which I have had on repeat for the past few days. This is one of many amazingly funky remixes from Giraffage. With Porter Robinson switching up his sound ever since joining M83’s label, why not switch it up a bit more?
