It’s not often that a remix of Bon Iver crops up, though we have shared a small handful of them over the years. Justin Vernon’s music can’t be easy to re-imagine, but if anyone can do it flawlessly, it’s Barclay Crenshaw, whom most people would more easily recognize under the name Claude VonStroke, the esteemed founder of Dirtybird Records who was voted #1 DJ in the world not too long ago. The producer has given Bon Iver’s  “715 – CRΣΣKS”, one of my favorites from their last album “22, A Million”, a truly transcendental re-work. Soft high hat rolls graze the surface of the beautifully drifting electronic edit, creating an austerely mesmeric effect next to Justin Vernon’s vocoder treated vocals. Barclay Crenshaw’s remix is a mellow and ambient masterpiece, both soothingly hypnotic and pensively haunting. This brilliant “Barclay Crenshaw White Label Renegade Cut” is available via Bandcamp, here.

It can’t be delayed anymore. We really must delve deep into the surreal and dreamy soundscape that is 지금(NOW) straight away. We’ve been keeping this one to ourselves for awhile now, but it’s high time we introduce you to Neon Bunny, if you aren’t already familiar with the Seoul-based electronic artist and her foggy swirling, diaphanous flowing synthpop and electronica. She takes cues from future bass and future trap to create her cottony fluorescent new song, a thoroughly intoxicating and sensually arresting experience. It’s obvious Asia is a hotbed of groundbreaking music activity these days, and artists of Korean heritage, including Neon Bunny and Yaeji, are making a mark in the electronic scene with their creative concoctions. Find more Neon Bunny music on Soundcloud, here.

I can’t be more happy for Marian Hill and their single Down, which has gone supernova on us ever since that AirPods television commercial from Apple. Down is one of those magical tunes that I never grow tired of, no matter how many time I encounter the commercial or listen to the song. A producer from Italy named BLENDER has given Down a welcome remix treatment that stays true to the original’s playful caprice, yet adds robust chunks of future bass exhilaration to its body. You can download BLENDER’s mesmeric yet thrilling edit for free, here.

We’ve had so much rain this month in Northern California that it’s been announced that we’re officially no longer in a drought. As the storms continue to batter the Bay, a balmy pop pick me up is just what we need. Washington, DC singer songwriter Jen Miller presents us with exactly that in the most enchanting manner on Down, her new collaboration with DC producer Jake Vicious. Dewy dulcet indie pop and summer frothy electronica are lightly dusted with just a touch of folksy pop on this phosphorescent hooking charmer. Down’s sound brings together some of our favorites like earthy Zella Day, jittery Grace Mitchell, tropical Cheat Codes, and more. The song serves as the lead single from Jen Miller’s forthcoming full length.

Ever busy and always talented progressive soul artist Brandyn Burnette put out a powerful song named Down late last year, a ballad whose rumbling ferocity and scalding heat are a dark and potent taste of the young artist’s immense talent. Down takes a blood pumping future bass and spine tingling chill trap turn on this remix by Floridia based producers Ricky Mears and shindō. The sharply oscillating, intensely roiling remix is an inebriating free download, here.

It’s been painfully long since we’ve heard from Marian Hill, but it was well worth the wait, considering the snazzy, jazzy goodness that is the Philadelphia duo’s new song, Down. We’ve fallen in love plenty of times in the past with their unique fusion of future bass, R&B, and jazz, and nothing has changed about Marian Hill’s allure in their interim silence. Down is downright magnetic, even taking on some chill trap effervescence in its sassy whimsicality. The crisp song bubbles like a cool and refreshing brook. Down is available now on iTunes.

Brandyn Burnette fans must be counting down the hours before it’s Friday, November 13th. Come tomorrow, the St. Louis alt R&B and progressive soul crooner releases his much anticipated debut EP, Made Of Dreams, a release that feels like it’s been such a long time coming after Brandyn had woo’ed us time and time again with his powerful music that often evoked fellow artists like John Mayer and Jon Bellion. As the big day approaches, Brandyn Burnette has revealed a new track to tide us over. Get ready for the scalding heat and rumbling ferocity of Down. Brandyn’s vocals have me transfixed and spellbound yet again on the song, which tremors with a rippling intensity. Down leaves me even more excited for Brandyn’s six track EP, available very soon on iTunes.

Germany’s Occupanther, who’s about to drop his new Chimera EP on September 12, completely entranced me with Down, while utterly amusing me with the new video for the electronic track. If you’re new to Occupanther, like me, here’s some tasty tidbits about who this fella is. Occupanther is a jazz student from Munich who’s opened for Banks and Chet Faker in Germany. He’s also adept at crafting amazing electronic pieces that, in the case of Down at the very least, manage to sweep listeners away with such dramatics and mystique that I can’t help but think of Boards of Canada. Watch the comedic video below.
