Here’s another must share remix of the day. Remember Dan Croll’s Home? It’s one of his more folksy, nostalgia waxing tunes compared to the talented British singer songwriter’s other indie pop tunes. If you dug the charming Home, but want to hear a more synthy, vibrant version, French producer Yuksek has a sweet remix for us. The remix is permeating with an awesome, shiny disco pop sound and a cheerful, peppy, carefree feel.

Like I said earlier, tons of dope remixes and covers this Thanksgiving weekend. Of course, there’s already been so many great ones of Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo’s super awesome, swaggy Sexy Socialite. Now, check out this super sick remix by Los Angeles producer Salva, who takes it into a crazy robotic, futuristic, deep and electro house realm. No joke, this is seriously sick. It retains a lot of the original funk, adds on some very French electro house moments, and blows up in your face with crazy huge bass (with a bit of SALVA’s trap peeking through)! If it leaves you craving for the original grooving jam, I’ve got you:

The Soundmen remix of Youngblood Hawke’s Say Say

November 30, 2013

Los Angeles indie poppers Youngblood Hawke grabbed a hold of countless ears with their infectious We Come Running over a year ago. A few months back, the band that’s so adept at crafting catchy synthpop songs released their debut full length album Wake Up. On it is Say Say, which is yet another prime example of their earworming ability. Brooklyn duo The Soundmen took the bright, feel good pop tune and remixed it into a considerably more electric dance pop song filled with shimmering synths and a club ready beat. Listen to both the remix and the original below. These are going to creep up on your mind late at night this weekend.

Kat Krazy remix of John Newman’s Losing You

November 30, 2013

A few days ago, I was finally able to find time to rotate in UK soul pop artist John Newman’s debut album Tribute into my CD rotation. By the time I was three songs in, I was texting my friend, advising her to listen to the release ASAP. She loves Rudimental, and John Newman’s solo work is a extension of some of the same powerful sound, but minus the drum and bass. For those that still don’t place the name, John Newman was the one who lent those incredible vocals on Rudimental hits Not Giving In and Feel The Love, some of the  early tunes that helped propel Rudimental to immense success. Newman has already achieved great heights of his own and topped charts back at home in the UK already, as predicted. His latest single is Losing you, which is definitely one of my faves off Tribute. For those that miss some heavier bass on his tracks (and his tracks are filled with LOUD percussion, vocals, and horns already), stream the new Kat Krazy electronic remix below. Then watch the video for the original track. And let it lift you up with its explosiveness. John Newman is another act I can’t wait to catch live within the next month or two. What a jawdropping voice. It’s going to be even more mind blowing live. Yea, buddy!

Apparently, Thanksgiving in America means everyone in the world should do awesome covers and remixes for us to enjoy. Another great cover to come out of the past day or so is this one by Ella Eyre, who just released her debut solo song ” target=”_blank”>Deeper last week after grabbing our hearts touring and singing with Rudimental. Ella offered up her version of the Gnarls Barkley hit Going On. Of course, she covers is fantastically. The horns, the percussion, the powerful soul of the track… it’s all a perfect fit for Ella Eyre.
