An already energetic, progressive house track gets a whole new makeover. Didn’t really think that adding more excitement and energy to the original track was possible, but somehow, our friend Elephante did it.

Like we’ve been saying for a while now, Elephante is an artist to watch. He adds a melody that honestly always manages to sound epic. Plus, Elephante’s synth selection never disappoints either. So, what could get better than an epic release? A free download, of course!

Before, you grab the download. Read what Elephante had to say about this remix on his SoundCloud:

So I really love the original, but something in my brain makes me imagine robot noises over everything I listen to. The vocal on this is so beautiful, so ethereal, and all I can think is GLITCH IT UP. Really happy with how this one came out though, it makes me feel like I’m cliff diving off into the glassy Mediterranean waters, and then like partying with robot dolphins and sea horses and shit. Yeah I don’t know either

“Drinking About You (The Chainsmokers Remix)” by Bebe Rexha


There is a lot to say about The Chainsmokers. Most people probably first heard some of their awesome remixes like “Dreaming” and “Medicine” and did not even know who they were. Then, out of nowhere, “Selfie” sweeps across the nation. The song was MONSTROUS! Everywhere you went, you heard “Let Me Take A Selfie.” The remixes and parodies were all funny and great but now it is time for The Chainsmokers to do what they do best and release some music.

The duo is best at implementing chill vocals and adding relaxing house drops equating to perfect partying and #DrinkingMusic. This remix brings them back to their original sounds and it is on point. I am looking forward to their new track called “KanYe” releasing August 5, 2014. The Facebook preview sounds like it could be a banger! I’m glad these guys keep releasing new music and can’t wait to hear more.

“Redemption Song (RÆVE & Mokoa ft. Jahson Cover)” by Bob Marley


A timeless message from a timeless legend given a fresh re-work full of instruments and vibes that I’m sure Mr. Marley would approve of if he were here to listen. French producers RÆVE and Mokoa join forces with Jamaican vocalist Jahson to give us another smooth Tropical House track.

This summer has been bursting with sunny remixes of classic hits and unique originals from the likes of Mozambo, Viceroy, Matoma, and Thomas Jack.

Luckily, we’ve got a killer playlist series from Jay that puts them all together in one place for you! I know I personally use these playlists anytime I’m out chilling by the pool or driving to the beach with friends.

“This Is What The Bounce Is” by Will Sparks

this is what the bounce is pumpthebeat.com

When the name Will Sparks is dropped in conversation, dance music fans, especially those from Australia, will know that the name is synonymous to Melbourne Bounce. Since its explosion in Australia, Will Sparks has been one of the leaders in the genre working to make the sound global. Ultra Music is aiding Sparks with this globalization of the genre.

Like with any Bounce track, you get the pulsating synth and the shuffling Melbourne bassline. In “This Is What Bounce Is,” Will Sparks makes these features even more pronounced. There’s no mistake, even if you overlooked the name, that this track is Melbourne Bounce.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Will Sparks commentated on the release:

This Is What The Bounce Is’ has been on heavy rotation throughout my recent sets and has been getting some mad love from the crowds, so I thought now was the perfect time to get it out there during the festival season.

I’ve mixed aspects of the classic bounce sound with a few new elements, including using my own voice. I’ve warped it a little so you might not recognise it as me! Keep your ears peeled for the extended intro & vocal versions which will be dropping soon.

“All I Want (Manila Killa Remix)” by Dawn Golden


Manila Killa has been putting in work. He has really come into his own as a producer and his tracks are always extremely polished and stylistically unique. He’s also been busy with his collective, Moving Castle, which he founded with a few other producers including frequent collaborator AO Beats. His newest remix of Dawn Golden’s “All I Want” showcases the original track’s poignant lyrics before dropping into a soothing, melodic tropical house breakdown. I had the pleasure of meeting Manila this past Saturday on his 21st birthday, and the kid is as nice as his beats. Enjoy this one and show him some love on Facebook to grab the free download.

“Often (Kygo Remix)” by The Weeknd


22 year old producer Kygo from Norway has BLOWN up in the past year! By creating his own tropical, chill, vibes and  a completely new genre, his fan base has grown to over 400,000 fans in over a year. Kygo remixes the right songs and he does it the right away. The first Kygo track I heard was his Ed Sheeran “I See Fire” remix. Instantly, I knew he was unique and going to be huge. His live sets contain extremely chill music like this “Crazy” cover and it’ll be a show unlike any you have experienced. This The Weeknd remix demonstrates Kygo’s different sound and adds a great twist to “Often.” Kygo’s remixes continue to impress me!
