Oh, hey! It’s another remix of Cold Water featuring additional layers of sound! There’s obviously a trend with the Major Lazer hit going on. Except in this case, we get to hear the Bieber and MØ featuring tune from a future bass angle, thanks to 16 year old Floridian producer Jupe. Most of what we’ve heard up till now were chill tropical edits. Jupe’s lustrous chopping remix, which features Giant Spirit on sultry simmering guitar, is a shot straight for my future bass and chill trap loving heart. The producer has designed a cool summery remix whose scintillating effervescence leave the whole of my being tingling in ecstasy. Download Jupe’s Cold Water remix, here.

It’s a grand scale bi-coastal affair when Miami’s Lookas and Los Angeles’ JayKode unite on an SHM remix. And by grand, I mean monumental. Swedish House Mafia’s Leave The World Behind, featuring Deborah Cox, goes cosmic trap on their beast of an edit. Whether SHM is reuniting and making a heralded return or not doesn’t really matter for at least four minutes forty eight seconds, thanks to JayKode and Lookas stunning behemoth of a taut thrilling remix. Adrenaline rushes through my veins as I find myself glued to this exhilarating and entrancing edit. I’ve left the world, far far below. Download the majestic re-work for free from Toneden.

By now, I’m thoroughly convinced that enigmatic producer k?d can do no wrong. He’s continued to enthrall me endlessly, track after track, week after week, and I simply can’t resist sharing whatever he puts out. While k?d’s remix of Daft Punk’s Doin’ It Right is likely one of the most brilliant edits of the year, all his other remixes are high up on the list, too. Witness his latest edit, a magnificent remix of Annabel Jones’ glossy sleek, crisp pulsing electropop gem Happy. While the original nearly had a spacious PC Music kind of vibe going on, k?d’s remix is an eternal suffusion of vibrant whirring synths and fluxing future bass. Annabel Jones manages to infuse her song with plenty of melancholic wistfulness despite the song’s name and its honeyed veneer. She sings, “tell me something happy, don’t make me sad”. That same emotion arises on k?d’s remix, but in lieu of “telling” us something happy, k?d lifts our spirits and drives away our blues with a dynamic propellant of sonic force. k?d gives us the catalyst that pushes us over a precipice. We free fall, heart pounding in pure exhilaration. Download his remix from Toneden.

A sweet bubbling, melodic endearing Hibell remix is just the right way to kick off a glorious weekend ahead. The 19 year old UK producer melts our hearts and moves our bodies with an airy ethereal, breezy effervescent remix of Canadian trio Dragonette’s latest single, Lonely Heart. The candy coated original and its rays of radiant sunshine burst with sonorous ebullience under Hibell’s expert dance pop re-design. His official Lonely Heart remix shimmers and fizzes, a summer fresh, tropical lush affair sure to leave your heart overjoyed. Dragonette’s Lonely Heart is out now on iTunes.

Los Angeles’ Magic Giant unleashed a splendorous anthem late last year, one I’m still utterly head over heels for. Set On Fire is a breathtaking beauty, an epic sweeping saga made up of dazzling folktronica and mellifluous alt pop. It’s that gorgeous tune that rising Austin based producer CLOUDCHORD has remixed for his latest track. CLOUDCHORD is proving himself responsible for some of my favorite remixes this year, and he gives Set On Fire a chill tropical, future sleek makeover more than perfect for the impending summer weekend. It’s a ravishing remix that amplifies my immense love for the original. CLOUDCHORD will be releasing original music soon, and his Magic Giant remix sets my own heart afire in anticipation for what’s to come.

I had several reasons for sharing this next grooving treat. First of all, anything related to Otis Redding classic (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay deserves some attention, considering it’s a timeless ode to my beloved city of San Francisco. Secondly, German producers Mandelbarth & Manumatei give it an edit that does plenty of justice to the oldie but goodie. From it’s entrancing deep house opening to when the smooth soulful vocals kick in, Mandelbarth & Manumatei keeps us bouncing in exhilaration. The deep and tech house remix is a dichotomy of light and dark, all at the same time. Its sharp beats and steely edge usually bodes for some ominous enthralling atmosphere, yet we have the light whistling and laid back charm of the original’s melody and Otis Reddis’ endearing cooing shining such glowing light on us, too. Download their remix for free, here.

UPDATE: Seems the original track was swapped out for a radio edit which is still fab but not as darkly guttural as the prior edit, which I dug more. The above was written about that track and doesn’t fit this radio edit as much.

As we count down the final days to Outside Lands Music Festival in early August, I’m sure there are countless people out there who are enormously excited to see Australian producer Thomas Jack, who’ll be playing both the festival itself and an after show at Mezzanine. Perhaps to whet our appetite prior to the sets, Thomas Jack has revealed a surprising new remix that I totally did not expect to encounter. He gives José González’s This Is How We Walk On The Moon a breathtaking deep house edit that carries just a sliver of that summery Thomas Jack vibe that we’ve grown much accustomed to. This is a meditative and serene remix, one that feels transcendental and near spiritual. The gorgeously slick remix, its gently pouncing beats, and its softly billowing trumpeting leave this José González and Thomas Jack fan with my heart aflutter.

Drinkee is without a doubt a bewitching dance track, an eccentric genre gender from red hot New York duo SOFI TUKKER that combines Brazilian bossa nova with club floor ready antics. I can’t imagine it’s an easy song to take on for a remix, but producers Vintage Culture & Slow Motion! scoops us up for a deep house ride with a phenomenal edit. The whomping, booming remix is dark and carnal, a four to the floor deep lascivious house transformation. Their remix will be available for purchase and streaming on July 29th.
