Man, I’ve seen Foster The People at my first Coachella, Big Gigantic last year, but I need me some The Knocks at Coachella soon. Anyways, New York’s finest production duo released a remix package of their of fire track Ride or Die and Big Gigantic didn’t fail in bringing the heat. I can’t even finish writing about this inferno since the heat has my fingertips rising off the keyboard in an attempt to fan the flames.

The new music video Foster The People unveiled this morning probably looks very familiar to those of you who are addicted to social media. I’m sure you’ve spent countless hours scrolling through your Instagram feed with glazed eyes, so let’s join the Los Angeles indie rock and alt pop quartet as they do the same in the visualizer for their new single, Sit Next To Me. The lustrous glimmering, sheer grooving tune is lifted off of their latest album Sacred Hearts Club, out since July and available, here

Despite how pervasive Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kids once was, I’ll never grow tired of the breakout smash single. It could very well become one of the most memorable and everlasting indie hits of the decade. French producer Klingande revives its youthful jaunt and irresistible hooks by sharing a brilliant chill melodic house re-work of the song. He’s completely rebuilt the track from the ground up with this summery fusion of rosy guitar licks and bouncy beats, and he’s released an adorable music video for the track, too. Klingande’s Pumped Up is out now on Ultra. Grab it, here.

Vallis Alps’ Young is still my all time favorite song from the Sydney based electronic pop duo. I’ll never forget falling hard for the enchanting song, one of several debuts Vallis Alps dropped all at once over two years ago. Nor will I forget how much I’ve enjoyed hearing the song live the handful of times I’ve been fortunate enough to see the pair live, whether at home in San Francisco or in Austin at SXSW. Beirut’s Imad, who previously floored us with a fine deep house and Brazilian bass re-invention of Foster The People hit Pumped Up Kicks, returns with his interpretation of Young. This is indeed a youthful Young, one with a crisp, polished beat and much elastic skipping verve. Imad serves up some tropical flavored deep house on his elegant rendering, a free download, here. Re-visit his remix of Foster the People’s Pumped Up Kicks below.

It was a mighty fine treat to wake up to not one, not two, but THREE new songs from Foster The People! I’ve been wondering what the fellows have been up to and hoping for new music, but this is more than I ever wished for. SHC, my current favorite of the three (or is it?) is a funky flaring anthem. Doing It For The Money is more of a slow burner and just as infectious. Pay The Man is quite a whimsical shuffling treat and instantly hooking, too. All three songs are from FtP’s forthcoming third album. Together, they form what looks to be an EP entitled III, out now on iTunes.

It’s hard to believe it’s been approximately six years since Foster The People took the world by storm with Pumped Up Kicks. The song’s eternal catchiness is undeniable. This bumping remix of the tune by Beirut based producer Imad only serves to confirm this. He gives the song a wicked deep house and Brazilian bass transformation. It’s impossible not to move to the remix’s balmy crisp bounces and spasmodic shudders. Fall in love with Pumped Up Kicks all over again with me. Grab the expertly executed remix for free, here.

I’m sure all the EDM heads are counting down the days till French producer Madeon finally releases a debut album. In the meantime, listen to the electro house artist go synthy pop on ebullient and radiant album track Nonsense, which features Mark Foster, of Foster The People. Adventure will be out March 31st. Expect it to climb electronic charts.

There have been some SUPERB remixes of Foster The People’s Best Friends rolling through lately. There’s that Jai Wolf and AOBeats’ version from a few days ago, which is my favorite (and many of you loved it, too), and then there’s Wave Racer, who blew our minds with his version last month, but this new one’s going to knock your socks off, too. Always amazing producer A-Trak teamed up with gLAdiator on this energetic, frenetic trap take that will bounce you right through the roof.
