Here’s another Skrillex remix tape to add to the collection. From deep house to the aggressive genre that Habstrakt has brought to the scene, you literally get everything. OWSLA is making massive moves this year and releases like the “Dirty Vibe” remixes EP and the “Ease My Mind / Ragga Bomb” remixes EP are putting them at the top in dance music. As an extra bonus, I’ve embedded the music video to “Dirty Vibe.”

“No Type (NGHTMRE Remix)” by Rae Sremmurd

no type rae sremmurd nghtmre pumpthebeat.com

A hip-hop track which gets a little bit of a deep house makeover. NGHTMRE is out with another brand new release taking on the popular Rae Sremmurd track “No Type.” A couple of weeks ago, NGHTMRE released a collaboration with Slander, which has garnered over 300K SoundCloud plays. The hollow bass, with minimal effort, takes over the entire groove of the track. Definitely better than the original. Don’t believe me? Take a listen below.

“Light” by Henrix

Henrix is out with an interesting new electro house track. As the track starts, we get an arpeggiated guitar riff to build the tension. As soon as the build transitions into the drop, the heavy electro comes into play. The entire track is just a massive progression of energy that’s definitely characteristic of releases by Flamingo Recordings.

Henrix has also released his track “Feel Alive” for free along with the track’s acapella. If you’re interested in downloading either piece, make sure to take a look below.

Release Date: December 22, 2014

Video: “You’re On” by Madeon ft. Kyan

After making an insane amount of noise with the preview of “You’re On” through BBC Radio 1, Madeon is now out with the visuals to accompany the track. Like most of his tracks, the theme aims to be uplifting. The video itself also follows a similar theme: A story following a girl through a world that resembles that of a futuristic land. For the superfans, Madeon makes a cameo appearance in one of the scenes. Can you spot him?

“Chasing Time (Feki Remix)” by Azealia Banks

More of these amazing vocals from Alzealia Banks. This remix by Feki slows things way down. Starting the song off with some strings to build the R&B ambiance. Then a small clash introduces the vocals. As they progress, Feki adds a few futuristic twinkles here and there, keeping your attention. Once the music takes over and the vocals are sidelined, you can’t help but sway your body to the rhythm.

It’s really cool to see all the different ways these vocals can be highlighted by a number of different artists. Listen to Feki’s take on them above.

“Last All Night (Koala)” by Oliver Heldens ft. KStewart

Oliver Heldens just released the music video for his hit track, “Last All Night”, or as most people know it, “Koala”. The video starts with a lab assistant explaining an experiment that is about to unfold. Once the doctor ingests the concoction, the tension begins to build in both the video and the song. When the drop comes, the doctor starts to feel a little better, dancing and grooving along with the music. On top of his new learned dance moves, his health starts to improve along with his libido. It seems the experiment went perfectly. Take a look at the video and see for yourself. You might even develop Benjamin Button’s Disease.
