Controversy and drama aside, it’s undeniable that California’s Hippie Sabotage is well versed in the electronic arts. After all, these are the fellows who gave us Habits, that tantalizing Tove Lo flip which I’ll love till the day I die. The duo make their return to IHM with a fresh new re-work, turning their attention to pop purveyor JØUR’s cottony floating pop gem, American Nightmare. They sample the track and forge Lights Out from its components, serving up an electrifying future beats cut full of restless, fidgeting energy. Stuttering drums and rolling snares jab at us mercilessly, delivering a sensory explosion of ambient sonic magnificence. Listen to the original, here. The difference is night and day.

Last month, we listened to a song from a new electronic artist out of London named CULKIIN which left us in deep meditative thought. Head evokes those long blurry nights out, when memories over the course of many hours start to bleed into one another, leaving you questioning your life and what’s to come when the sun comes up. Surprisingly, it’s this rather existential tune that Hippie Sabotage has chosen for their latest flip. The California duo give the song a droopy nebulous, syrupy viscous makeover that takes it into future vibes territory, one tactfully infused with a breakbeats percussive roll. Their approach on Head befits the mind trip tendencies of the song to a tee. It goes Straight To My Head

Hippie Sabotage gave us some of my favorite flips and remixes of these past years, often times helping to propel artists I love into even greater success with their always intoxicating edits. The duo from Sacramento demonstrate how versatile and skilled they are with a new original named Devil Eyes on which they croon magnetically over a slow burning, steadily snaking trap beat. Devil Eyes is hypnotic, and at just over two minutes long, you’ll want to hit the play button again immediately after. The gritty electro soul song simmers moodily and seductively, leaving me hungry for more originals from the duo. It’s a heckuva way for Hippie Sabotage to start off the new year.

Hippie Sabotage has doubly given their mark of approval to another buzzing new artist that I’ve been praising endlessly on IHM. Not only have they already remixed Kiiara’s Gold last month, they’ve now unleashed a remix of Feels, too! The Sacramento duo never fail to remix some of the most exciting emerging talent in the pop scene. This time around, they give newcomer Kiiara’s third song, Feels, a very droopy, syrupy The Weeknd sort of hip hop and R&B vibe. They’ve turned the track on its heels with the ominously stunning edit, pitch shifting Kiiara’s vocals and loading the track with a heavy murkiness. Feels, indeed.

When Sacramento duo Hippie Sabotage chooses to remix or flip your tune, it’s like a mark of honor and approval, a sign of good times to come. So, it’s no surprise but such a delight that the duo have chosen Illinoise newcomer Kiiara’s ace debut Gold for their latest remix. They take the glitchy pop song and give it a more airy and entrancing atmosphere, a downtempo allure drenched in a heavier mystique and plenty of breaking, skittery, drum and bass like beats. The haunting remix is a fresh alternate approach on Gold.

This one came to my attention rather late in the day, but as soon as I the words Hippie Sabotage, I knew this was going to be a must for today’s features. After all, the Sacramento based electronic duo has never failed to take me beyond cloud nine with their ethereal flips of so many great songs in the past, including what is likely everyone’s favorite, Tove Lo’s Habits. For their latest divine flip, Hippie Sabotage remixes Toronto songstress Tali Kouch’s Able To See Me, infusing it with that Hippie Sabotage choppy beauty we hold so dear to our hearts. It’s an other wordly chill trap track sure to transport you to a magical, dreamy world.

I’m used to Sacramento electronic brother duo Hippie Sabotage endlessly blowing my mind with their amazing remixes. They’re so good at what they do that their beloved flip of Tove Lo’s Habits even made it on to her debut album as a bonus track. But wait… before we start reminiscing about those superb remixes, check this out. Hippie Sabotage creates superb originals, too. Case in point, their brand new song, Waiting Too Long, a mellow song far removed from some of their chill trap electronic remixes. There’s a soulful Chet Faker like quality to the feathery song and a hip hop imbued beat. Right now, Waiting Too Long is the only track they have public on their Soundcloud account. I’m loving the new song. Waiting for your next move, Hippie Sabotage.

German producer Alle Farben’s single She Moves (Far Away) featuring Graham Candy is a gorgeous tune within itself, but we’ve heard a splendid, lush remix of the song already, by ever busy Sacramento duo Hippie Sabotage, which you can stream below. Above, find yet another haunting and enchanting remix of the track, this time by London trio Felon. It’s a sparkling, chiming melodic house treat.

I seem to be keeping it fairly local all of a sudden, because this next one’s a new remix from Sacramento duo Hippie Sabotage, who seem to be keeping themselves superbly busy these days with new remix after remix. Having just given us a super creepy and delicious remix of Mikky Ekko’s Smile, they return now with this atmospheric, future bass take on New York artist Elliot Moss’ ace alt electronic tune Slip. For those that were confused by Hippie Sabotage’s style on their Smile remix (not I), this one might put you back at ease and bliss.
