Justice’s We Are Your Friends is a French house classic that’s more than survived the test of time since it first dropped in 2002. It takes some guts to take on such a song for a remix, but production brothers TWO LANES more than prove their mettle once again as they give us an exhilarating update by turning the track into a rambunctious whirring, bass romping spectacular. Seismic thrusts, percolating jabs, and vigorous surges leave us gasping for air on the blowout trap and future bass edit. Download TWO LANES’ remix, here.

Who doesn’t love Rihanna and Mikky Ekko’s heart pummeling ballad Stay? The song has been covered far and wide since it stole everyone’s hearts. Some of the best renditions were huge genre-crossing surprises too, including Low’s superb cover, a personal favorite of mine. But there haven’t been very many electronic edits of the smash hit, at least not an abundance that merited much praising and adoration. New Orleans producer CRWNS, however, has offered up a fresh new edit of Stay, which he’s named S-T-A-Y, and the wildly rousing and breathtakingly lifting track warrants some much deserved attention. His anthemic remix pitch shifts Rihanna’s voice giving it a more sprightly and ethereal aura to go with S-T-A-Y’s expansive and spacious, voluminous and explosive atmosphere. CRWNS has crafted a cinematic trap and monumental bass masterpiece out of Stay. And he’s giving it away as a free download, here.

The fact that legendary electrogaze and industrial electronica crew The Glitch Mob tapped Elohim for their latest track I Could Be Anything is nothing short of an affirmation of the Los Angeles electro-pop artist and producer’s talent. And together, they did wonders on the spectacular song, a conjoining of the classically exalted with the voice of the future. And now, I Could Be Anything has received an official remix treatment from another “voice” of the future, or much venerated and beloved producer REZZ. She’s given I Could Be Anything an acidic warbling dubstep edit. The ravey remix is invigorating and rousing, visceral and electrifying. REZZ takes us on a dark journey into the nebulae of our minds. To add to the intensity of this odyssey, watch the mesmerizing music video for REZZ’s remix below. Download/stream the track, here.

Even though it hasn’t been too long since we watched an amazing performance by fast rising indie troupe slenderbodies right here in San Francisco, we made sure we caught the Los Angeles duo in SXSW earlier this month too. In fact, we practically stopped by the Majestic Casual showcase just for them, even though we were blown away by many of the other performers that evening, too. While ‘anemone’ will probably be our forever love, we’ve fallen hard for every one of the pair’s slinky smoldering tunes, including their groovalicious cover of MGMT’s Electric Feel. It’s an immense treat to have returned from Austin to a fresh remix of Niall Horan’s pop hit On The Loose by the duo. Gooey luscious vocal harmonies and a whole lot of muggy heat abounds on the vibey edit, as expected. slenderbodies is currently gearing up for their tour with PVRIS next month. In case you missed any of our prior slenderbodies features, get on them now, here.

Hudson Mohawke’s Chimes is a classic in my book. Though I haven’t listened to it in awhile, the moment that progressive melody hit my ears raised all the serotonin levels in my brain to the max. And now, Basenji, another much revered production legend, has released his bootleg of Chimes. You should be no stranger to the remix if you’ve caught Basenji live. But to be able to dive into its breaking Jersey Club/garage styled intricacies whenever we want is a generous gift from the music gods. It’s almost as if Jamie xx and HudMo came together on a track. In other words, this is brilliantly divine. Basenji’s bootleg marks the beginning of a whole month of fresh releases from the producer. You can catch the Sydney artist back home in Australia this spring when he embarks on tour. Dates can be found, here.

Last summer, Romanian producer Boehm put forth a summer buoyant dance dazzler named Outside The Lines, featuring Laurell on guest vocals. Though it’s now winter, we’re ready for a nice effusion of warmth as German production project Not Your Dope gives the track a fresh update by giving it a robust and ebullient remix that highlights its balmy heat and tropical lushness. The deep pumping, electro prancing edit is part of an official remix pack for the original that also features remixes by rrotik and a VIP by Boehm himself. We’re on the cusp of a deep freeze tonight that will make tomorrow one of the coldest days of the year. This seems the perfect time to drop on Not Your Dope’s broiling remix. Stream/purchase the full remix pack, here.

The Chainsmokers defied expectations with their latest single Sick Boy, going for a more Twenty One Pilots meets Transviolet like alt sound on the beast of a tune rather than their usual buoyant prancing future bass and pop on hits like Roses and Closer. xo sad, a mysterious and enigmatic project who seems to have appeared out of nowhere less than a month ago, has begun to forge a namesake with their post-EDM styled covers. xo sad melds gritty alt styled vocals with lush emotive electronic soundscapes. Their latest cover, a raw gripping, rough brooding trap cover of Sick Boy, is a prime example of that mesmeric sound, dripping with emotion and anguish. You can also stream xo sad’s covers of Post Malone’s I Fall Apart and Lil Peep & Marshmello’s Spotlight on Soundcloud, here. Their take on Sick Boy is a free download, here.

Marshmello and Selena Gomez’s majestic collaboration Wolves may have been released near the end of last year, but it quickly made such a commotion and climbed the charts so fast that it became one of 2017′s biggest crossover hits. There’s no forgetting that amazing AMA performance, either. As I’ve already said a handful of times, some incredible remixes have been spawned by the hit single. Canadian producer Vincent offered up a stunning future bass and chill trap configuration soon after the single’s release. Check out the track, here. And now, Los Angeles based producer Crystalize has precipitated his own take out of Vincent’s remix, giving it a softer edge and a some fluid whorling beauty with his future bass makeover. That’s right, this is a remix of a remix, an evolution of an evolution. Benjamin David of Crystalize explains that once he heard Vincent’s remix, he felt so connected that he knew he had to put his own spin on it. Crystalize’s heart-stopping, dramatic sweeping edit is a free download, here.
