SOFI TUKKER’s wildly infectious Best Friend, the Grammy nominated duo’s collaboration with The Knocks, NERVO, and Alisa Ueno, is easily one of the year’s best dance tracks. It’s certainly one of our top favorites, and we’re still glowing with joy from the fact that it’s been featured so prominently by Apple in their big iPhone X commercial. The NYC based alt dance duo shared an immense remix pack for Best Friend last Friday, off which comes this frisky fun, beat clobbering edit by Sophie and Tucker themselves. The energetic pumping new “Carnaval Remix” is well worth of some prismatic plumed Brazilian Carnival shenanigans. This rump shaking rendition is a Brazilian house bonanza, and it’s available from iTunes alongside three other edits on the new remix pack, here.

It’s a jumbo sized collaboration as SOFI TUKKER drops a bombshell of a groover named Best Friend, on which the Grammy nominated duo are joined by Los Angeles electronic bigwigs NERVO, New York dance darlings The Knocks, and Tokyo DJ/culture influencer Alisa Ueno. Best Friend is the sort of fiery scorching, racy pumping SOFI TUKKER banger with a deep groove and plenty of island flair. It’s so hot, it’s even been tapped for that new iPhone X commercial. SOFI TUKKER’s new song is, as its name implies, an appreciative celebration of friendship. You can catch the New York house/dance duo live when they perform at Life Is Beautiful in Vegas later this month or when they tour with Odesza this fall. I’m excited to see them yet again when Odesza makes their three night stop at the Greek in Berkeley. You can also stream and download Best Friend, here.

18 year old English newcomer Rex Orange County leaves us in mellow bliss with his dulcet gliding second single, Best Friend. Zane Lowe chose the song for his World Record on Beats 1 just last week, a sure indication of the indelible impression the young talent is already making with his music. Best Friend is Rex Orange County’s ode to that ever pervasive, commonly lamented problem of being friendzoned. Despite the poignancy of this situation, Rex Orange County has managed to create a light hearted, sweetly endearing tribute. This breezy chic, jazzy flittering amalgam of soul, pop, and indie rock is like a dreamy mixture of Tom Misch and Frank Ocean. It’s reported that Two Inch Punch, Tyler the Creator, and BADBADNOTGOOD are massive fans of Rex Orange County. In fact, he’s currently working on some music with BADBADNOTGOOD. It probably doesn’t need to be said, but expect big things to come.

Hakj, a five piece band from Norway, has been making the rounds on viral charts with their music as of late. If you haven’t already fallen for this quintet, you’ll likely understand why they’re cooking up some major buzz with their music once you listen to new single Best Friend. The band, whose members include Death By Unga Bunga’s Preben Sælid Andersen, dish out smooth soulful, vintage charming indie pop on their latest gem. A dash of UMO, a grain of early Phoenix, and a touch of Porches imbue this thoroughly charming, gently snapping throwback treat. The band reveals that Best Friend is the very first song they wrote together, a “simple and in-your-face pop song.”

This might be my top favorite remix share of the day. New York electronic producer Jai Wolf and Massachusetts hip hop producer AOBeats teamed up to remix Foster The People’s Best Friend. It’s one alluring, shimmering, future beats laden affair. If you dig trap and chillstep, this will make you very, very happy.

Alright, alright, one last remix for now, I promise, but it’s a special one! Have you ever wondered what Foster The People would sound like if they decided to go the nu-disco route? Ask no more. Listen to this remix of Foster The People’s Best Friend (off recent sophomore album Supermodel) by French producer Dim Sum. And yes, his tunes are as tasty as his name sounds. Mmm… dim sum… His Best Friend flip is filled with slick and funky electro beats. I’ve concluded that Foster The People should put forth some nu-disco music. Mark Foster’s voice and the style of their music really works disco-fied! As for Dim Sum, I’m certainly keen on his music now that I’ve stumbled upon it. Dim Sum released an EP earlier this year on Soundress, and the title track Coucou Disco is a epic, grooving jam, great for those who dig early Daft Punk crossed with Giorgio Moroder and some acts off DFA.

Alright, friends, I have one more to leave you with before I bid you adieu for a bit, and this one’s been on my share list since I first heard it about two days ago. Foster The People recently released their sophomore album Supermodel, and there’s no doubt that Best Friend is one of the stand out tracks off of it. Australian Future Classic producer Wave Racer has remixed the tune, giving it his super bubbly and tropical future trap sound. It’s like Foster The People, on caffeine, at a beach, with ecstatic dolphins and stuff hopping over the place. If you get my drift. Hmm. I think you do. Wave Racer, you rock.
