If you don’t believe that electronic music can be beautifully soothing and tenderly moving, let me show you this effervescent gem, These Days. It’ll caress your heart with gently swelling synths and soft twinkling beats, as well as airy wafting vocals by Zoe Maxwell. These Days is UK producer James Carter’s latest lush stirring future bass masterpiece, rife with smooth keys.

These Days is a chiffon, cottony aria, steeped in bittersweet nostalgia and awash in a sanguine glow. Stream on Spotify, here.

James Carter last enthralled us with a spectacular remix of NoMBe’s Wait. While we’re still stuck on that lush radiant treatment, we’re more than overjoyed that the UK producer has returned with a fresh original named Lost Without You, featuring deep soulful vocals by German singer songwriter ILIRA. This doleful yet summery anthem interweaves melodious future pop with tropics hued, balmy luscious house. You can also stream the impeccably hooking anthem via Spotify, here.

We may have just shared NoMBe’s latest genre bending single less than 24 hours ago, and it may have blown us away yet again, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be obsessed with earlier single Wait, a silky smooth melter reminiscent of earthy Milky Chance mixed with jazzy Tom Misch. UK producer James Carter gives us the perfect opportunity to re-visit Wait, albeit a dance emphatic version of it, via his intoxicating remix. Chill melodic house meets Gryffin like guitar lush tropical radiance on the velveteen swooning edit, which is a free download, here.

UK producer James Carter is responsible for one of my favorite remixes of Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You. The edit, which he crafted alongside his German buddy Levi, was one of the few remixes I chose to share out of hundreds that arrived this month. Now, he’s back to melt us with a deep house gem. This effulgent and honeyed chill dance version of Hailee Steinfeld’s Starving features Maria Lynn on warm saccharine vocals. You can download the gently springing sparkler, here.

Ed Sheeran managed to send the world into an excited tizzy last weekend when he unceremoniously dropped two new tunes, one an uptempo earworm named Shape Of You, the other a folksier melter named Castle On The Hill. By now, you’ve probably checked both of them out, maybe even listened to it endless times. Heck, you might have shed a tear or two if you’re one of those devout fans who’d probably faint if you were to meet Ed Sheeran someday. On Monday morning, I woke up to a limitless cornucopia of Shape Of You remixes, a handful of which I’m looking forward to sharing. To avoid deluging you with too many of them at one time, let’s focus our attention on a deep melodic house version of the song crafted by UK producer James Carter and German producer Levi. The two have linked up to give us a summer breezy, island jocund Shape Of You that takes us to beach island paradise. You can download their remix for free, here.

I just shared the killer original last week, and what comes along this week but a divine official remix of A R I Z O N A’s bright and vibrant Where I Wanna Be by British producer James Carter and German producer Levi! The two team up to go deep and tropical on the remix. I’m left wanting to be on an island paradise, dancing freely under warm rays of sunshine as turquoise waves lap at my bare feet.

As quickly as they’ve emerged, a flood of remixes and covers of Adele’s Hello have disappeared into the abyss of corporate bureaucracy, so I’m praying to the music gods that this one will be up for a prolonged period of time, because it’s too good for you to miss. British producer James Carter teams up with Los Angeles newcomer Sad Money on a magnificent remix of Hello. This one takes the power of the original down a notch, choosing a path more sparse and subdued that takes us on a echo filled chill trap and electro journey. Its rolling hills and shimmering oceans emit a soft, meditative glow. It’s a gorgeous take on an iconic song that we’ll be hearing for decades to come. Free download, here.

British producer James Carter gives Swedish duo Nause’s buzzy progressive anthem Move a huge transformation, turning the banger into a chill and sparkling tropical house glider instead. It’s a Kygo and Elephante evoking deep meets funky electro remix full of rosy vibrancy and summery relaxation. The euphoric remix is a free download from label The Falling Apple to celebrate 30k followers. Grab it here.

While trop house king Kygo’s latest original, Nothing Left, featuring Will Heard, might be my favorite original from the producer, there’s no doubt that the slight infusion of energy and bounce on this airy remix by London’s James Carter is one blissful affair. The original is one of the most slowly simmering offerings we’ve ever heard from Kygo, only kicking into more of a tropical gear late in the track. James Carter extends that endearing island warmth throughout the song with a chill groove, giving it a light and airy bump in the mood department. Free download, here.
