This track isn’t exactly new. In fact, it’s been thrilling ears and blowing minds for well over four months. But a chance encounter brought us to the sounds of The Loyalist, a production talent who’s also one half of Santa Cruz electronic duo Lost Boyz, and we were so enamored by his music that we spent an extended amount of time sampling his music on Soundcloud. One of The Loyalist’s more recent remix spectaculars is the above scintillating edit of Zedd & Alessia Cara smash hit Stay. The infectious original gets hit by monumental drops and exhilarating trills on this bass heavy transformation. Stay has never been more thrilling and tactile. You can literally feel this remix vibrating straight through your body. Upon further exploration into The Loyalist’s music, I found myself utterly transfixed by the beauty of his future bass original, Komorebi, named after the Japanese word for ‘sunlight filtering through the leaves of trees’ (which there is no English equivalent for). The Loyalist certainly encapsulates the magic and beauty of that transcendental image on his wondrous song. Stream Komorebi below. Upon diving into Lost Boyz’s music out of heavy curiosity, I was much impressed by their song ȻOMINǤ ƉOW№ and its percolating future trap. You can also stream the single below.

Chicago mashup virtuoso and remix extraordinaire Trademark blasted onto our radar last year with his remix of LANY’s Where The Hell Are My Friends. I ended up glued to his Soundcloud for an extended amount of time afterwards, due to the heaps of incredible mashups he’s stored there. Trademark’s latest such track is a crushing intermingling of Zedd & Alessia Cara’s Stay and Bassjackers & Brooks’ Joyride. Reasons Why is a progressive house and electro house bonanza. Download the track for free, here, and get ready to jump higher than you’ve ever jumped in your life.

There’s been a storm of remixes, both official and home brewed, for Zedd and Alessia Cara’s Stay. Last week, we shared a jaw dropping remix by Petit Biscuit. Today, we turn our attention to Aylen, who’s given Stay a metallic twanging, kinetic whizzing master tweak that will have you bouncing off the walls in no time. Aylen’s remix is just the sort of vibrant and vigorous burst of energy I need to get me through the rest of the week. Then, it’s going to be a dance anthem must for the weekend, too. Grab his future house tinged melodic whomper of a remix for free, here.

It’s likely many of you have already enjoyed this next behemoth collaboration which surfaced a few days prior, particularly if you’re a fan of the great Zedd, or a devotee of Alessia Cara and her ever authentic & endearing urban pop artistry. For those that haven’t, this is your chance to partake in their colossal song together, Stay. Zedd takes a future pop approach on his infectious new jam. The chill melodic, ethereal bouncing piece is reminiscent of some of The Chainsmokers’ biggest hits. Stay is out now on Interscope.

Sydney’s Joe Mason professes his love for Scars To Your Beautiful, one of immensely talented singer songwriter Alessia Cara’s endearing tunes, by giving it a stellar remix. It’s near impossible for your heart not to melt to this lofty fluttering, melodic wobbling edit. I swear the dark room I’m writing from has lit up tenfold, sparkling under a rosy glow thanks to Joe Mason’s genre defying remix, one that pairs summery house with melodic dubstep. This rather optimistic and hopeful track breathes new life into my elections savaged heart. Download Joe Mason’s grand remix from Toneden.

Last night, I promised you a morning dance party, and that’s exactly what we’re going to have as a Philly based producer named Rolstone takes us to great heights of joy with an uplifting dance remix of Alessia Cara’s Wild Things. Rolstone gives us a summer radiant edit of the infectious urban pop tune. His airy buoyant Wild Things is island breezy and tropical chill, like a mix of springy melodic Gryffin with some SNBRN sunset house. Rolstone leaves this wild thing beaming in euphoria with his vibrant dazzling remix. Grab the Wild Things remix, here.

Just the other day, fast rising urban pop star Alessia Cara released a remix of her own song Wild Things, one which featured now flying high hip hop artist G-Eazy, who blasted out of the Bay and is swiftly conquering the world with his riveting emceeing and his dapper handsome looks. The two combined in one song is an explosion of raw talent, and now we get to celebrate that talent to the max by dancing along to remix of Wild Things by Vancouver electronic pros Young Bombs! They give Wild Things a summery future trap makeover with hints of moombahton peeking playfully through, too. Wild Things goes rainforest lush on Young Bombs’ bomb edit, creating a euphoric jungle wonderland for us wild things to play.

Norwegian producer Lido has, as expected, become a much respected and loved force to be reckoned with in the past couple of years. I’m always on the lookout for new Lido, particularly since he’s preparing to drop an album, and surprise of all surprises, he’s unleashed an unexpected treat on us! Stating that he “caught the blues today” and that this is the last thing before his album drops, Lido regales us with a phenomenal cover of Alessia Cara’s Here, titled “Here (Thoughts From A Tour Bus)“! It’s a mighty fine cover that balances between the original’s spunk and Lido’s future bass production style. The end result is intense, yet swooning, on fire yet sprinkled with cool piano swagger.

Sebastian Kole is new on my radar, but by no means is he new in the music scene. The singer songwriter and producer from Alabama is label mates with fast rising star Alessia Cara on Motown Records, and he even co-wrote and co-produced her album, including that amazing, world shaking first song, Here. Sebastian whisks me away with his velvet vocals on a time stopping cover of Adele’s new super ballad, Hello. The simple and downtempo piano version is might be even more moving than Adele’s original, with more tender and extra melancholic qualities. After listening to Hello so many times since its reveal days ago, Sebastian Kole’s cover is a very nice change up. I had to dive into more Sebastian music after Hello, and I was much taken by Priceless, too. Stream the sweeping ballad below.
