Talk is a gorgeously affecting, tender stirring beauty from Scottish outfit November Lights that melds chill indietronica with alt pop. You can stream the track, here, if you missed out on our prior feature of the song. Beirut based producer Imad takes full advantage of its atmospheric sonics on a lusciously bounding dance remix. Talk now prances with endless vibrant energy, but it’s also a fleecy warm caress under the dexterous production guidance of Imad. His emotive and melodic house edit comes while Imad is celebrating a million plays on his previous original. You can stream or download the remix for free via other platforms, here.

It makes perfect sense that this next gem is named Getaway. After all, it all but takes me away from the stress of the work week to a halcyon sonic Eden. I’d love to stay in this verdant oasis forever and dance for all eternity, rather than come back down to reality. Getaway is a velutinous collaboration between Beirut’s Imad and Germany’s Wave Wave. They’ve also enlisted Beirut vocalist Samia on beautiful vocals and Romania’s White Trumpet on airy caressing horns. The multi-national affair’s pristine deep house is saturated with a twinkling effervescence and crisp rumbling bass. You can download Getaway for free, 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’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.
