Windy City electronic production sensations Louis The Child just announced a massive headlining tour for the fall after having slayed the Twin Peaks stage at Outside Lands Music Festival. The news calls for some proper celebration, and what better way to do that than a fresh remix of Chance The Rapper’s All Night? That’s right, the duo have given the song an infusion of high voltage future bass and trap, and it’s nothing short of epic. Louis The Child’s whomping, thumping remix is a quintessential party anthem. And it’s a free download, here. The pair will be joined on tour by an incredible list of talent, many of which are IHM favorites, including Lauv, Louis Futon, Prince Fox, Joey Purp, Win & Woo, Ashe, Party Pupils, and Point Point.

Oakland’s own Francis and the Lights, or Francis Farewell Starlite, is seriously a music genius. If you missed out on his 2016 album ‘Farewell, Starlite!’, I suggest you check it out as soon as possible. Also, if you get a chance to see the man perform, I highly recommend it too. He opened for Bon Iver at the Fox Oakland last fall, and I eagerly arrived early for his set. He gave us a stunning display of charisma and musicality, both which kept the crowd completely riveted despite his unadorned and modest stage set up. ‘Farewell, Starlite!’ track May I Have This Dance gets a surprise revision today, one that features Chance The Rapper with guest vocals directed at his daughter. It comes by way of a new video, and what’s a Francis and the Lights video without some entrancing choreography and synchronized dancing? That’s right, you get to watch Chance The Rapper dance it out, with Francis joining him partway through the song, just like Kanye and Justin Vernon did in the video for Friends. After you’ve watched the video countless times as I have, you can stream ‘Farewell, Starlite!’, here.

Though my discovery of this treasure trove of euphoria comes a little bit late, it doesn’t negate the fact that it’s a must share. Brazilian duo DeltaFoxx are foxy indeed as they reveal their mad remixing skills on a luscious edit of Chance The Rapper’s Same Drugs. Sparkling light chill trap, dreamy electro, and cottony weightless future bass captivate to the max on this pastel enticing delight. The wavy celestial remix is a free download, here.

This next one could easily be one of the most surprising and buzz attracting new tune of the day. As a huge fan of Florida band Hundred Waters and their experimental, artsy music, it was totally unexpected to encounter a Skrillex remix of their song Show Me Love, much less one that features Chance The Rapper, Moses Sumney, and Robin Hannibal of Rhye. Need a moment to digest this roster of much contrasting talent? I needed a long one, to be honest. Sonny Moore even dropped a self directed music video for this star studded affair, and he certainly managed to create a very fresh new version of Show Me Love that combines the bewitching quality of the original with a new hip hop, soul, and electronica conglomeration of hooking sound. Ultimately, this works wonders because of the original track, and Nicole Miglis’ uniquely spellbinding voice. Purchase the remix, here.

Snakehips’ fantastically hooking dance anthem All My Friends, featuring Chance The Rapper and Tinashe, is receiving some wondrous remix treatments of late. The latest ear pleasing, brain waves jiggling edit comes from Australia’s Wave Racer, who injects All My Friends with the exact kind of fizzy vibrancy and colorful agility that we love about his music. This is the neon sunsets and smiling dolphins version of All My Friends, and it would be a great one to hear on one of those cruise fests, with beach balls a flying and plastic palm trees a swaying. Purchase the bubbly treat on iTunes.

Endless ecstasy abounds on a club edit remix of Snakehips’ Tinashe and Chance The Rapper featuring All My Friends by the UK’s 99 Souls. The enigmatic duo’s feel good edit is so melodic and uplifting that it’s been premiered by MTV UK. All My Friends leaves me wishing it were summer again, so I could invite all my closest friends out to an outdoors pool party to create the best of memories together. Snag the breezy dance remix on iTunes.

Snakehips always provide some sexy tunes. Throw in Tinashe and Chance The Rapper, hot damn. This song sounds like the anthem for many people in their mid to late 20s. It’s when we realize we’re probably getting too old for the club scene, all your friends are wasted, and you’ve had more liquor than your body can handle. After dealing with the superficial of a night club scene you just want to come back home to what is real.

Emerging New York based crooner Jordan Bratton immediately captured my heart with his aptly named, swooning R&B pop song Prisoner, which even features Chance The Rapper. It’s a laid back, playful gem and sure hit off Bratton’s debut EP, Youth, out May 12th. The release will probably propel this guy to huge levels of buzz.

There’s never been any doubt in my mind that Los Angeles based producer Nosaj Thing is a music genius. His atmospheric, droopy, hypnotic productions are subtle yet nuanced. On May 5th, he’ll be releasing new album Fated on Innovative Leisure, and today he slays it on newly revealed album track Cold Stares, which features entrancing vocals by Chance The Rapper. The syrupy, haunting song is smooth yet heady, a smorgasbord of chilling and sensual elements. Nosaj Thing will be touring this spring across the states, leading up to the album release.

If you’re yet to hear the latest hip hop jam from NYC rapper (and chef!) Action Bronson, it’s time you get up on this classy, lavish treat. Baby Blue is another collaboration with Chance The Rapper. Mark Ronson is the culprit behind the song’s old fashioned production. Altogether, they’ve created a rich and opulent hip hop gem. Baby Blue will be on Action Bronson’s new album Mr. Wonderful, out March 24th via Atlantic.
