Apparently, Khamsin’s “way” is also our way. The French producer has released his much-anticipated new single, My Way, featuring long time IHM favorite MOONZz on stellar vocals. And the track’s melodic trap and high-wire future bass is exactly the type of dynamic electronica and pop we love. Intensive percussion, thrilling drops, and intricate instrumentals embellish the magnificent song. Khamsin, who’s also a member of electronic super group Slow Hours, has expertly blended live instrumentals (those smooth guitar licks, wow) with a vividly animated future bass sound. MOONZz vocals are beautiful over Khamsin’s whimsical soundscape. Stream/download My Way, here.

It’s impossible not to “Feel It” when Vincent takes on KRANE for a truly resplendent future bass remix. The Canadian producer has given the Oakland native’s Feel It, featuring CXLOE and Khamsin, a spectacularly ravishing re-work. He cranked out this regal marching, grandly surging future trap edit in Dim Mak’s studios, giving us a larger than life, utterly exhilarating new take on the original. The track comes off of Krane’s Fallout (The Remixes) release, which is available, here.

There’s no need to second guess the stirring beauty and sheer strength of this new song. After all, Second Guess comes from established Parisian producer Khamsin, a gifted musician also known for his role in supergroup Super Hours alongside the likes of Kulture, Kidswaste, and more. Khamsin links up with Scandipop artist Anuka on the dynamic future bass anthem, stitching together burning guitar riffs and bold synths to create a powerfully moving, genre blurring opus. Anuka proves herself a spectacular vocalist on the track, alternating between the fiercely resonant and the pensive aching with her dexterous voice. Alternate streaming and downloading options for Second Guess are available, here.

Parisian producer Khamsin, who’s also a member of French electronic supergroup Slow Hours besides the likes of Kultur, Kidswaste, and more, serves up his re-imagining of ZHU anthem Hometown Girl for his latest track. ZHU has never felt lighter on its feet. Khamsin’s remix is a melodic hopping, luminous lifting new approach on ZHU’s usually dark and guttural sound. Sure, Hometown Girl is already uniquely soft and misty for ZHU, but the original still feels somewhat pensive and introspective. Khamsin’s remix gives Hometown Girl a sanguine glow and an irresistible bounce. Jaymes Young’s velveteen cooing shines even brighter on Khamsin’s re-work, which is a free download, here.

The sheer amount of production talent that makes up supergroup Slow Hours is jaw dropping. The French collective involves Lain, Kultur, Astre, Khamsin, Kidswaste, and Rusty Hook. They first rocketed out of France four months ago as a united front on an exceptional remix of What So Not and Ganz’s Lone, featuring Joy. They’ve now given Petit Biscuit’s Sunset Lover the an epic transformation. The summer breezy, wistful nostalgic aria goes grand atmospheric on Slow Hours’ remix. Its orchestral magnificence reminds me of British composer Max Richter. But then that symphonic narrative explodes into vibrant fireworks. Electro house, future bass, and dubstep fuse together robustly to create a widescreen reel of technicolor brilliance. This tour the force sprawler is on the new Sunset Lover Remix EP, out now and available from iTunes, here. The six track release also features edits by Daktyl, Bearcubs, Clément Bazin, and OTR.

Even before I dove into this next one, I knew we were in for a ear pleasing, sensory gratifying treat. Parisian producer Khamsin, one of the many talents that has also recently linked up for a “production supergroup” of sorts in the form of Slow Hours, returns with an enthralling remix of Mura Masa and Charli XCX’s hit single One Night. Thrumming synths and whomping beats make this One Night darker and more cinematic. The unique French house meets future bass edit brims with what Khamsin himself calls “pop-rock vibes”. Khamsin’s work of splendor and grandeur is a free download, here.

Heads up, electronic music loving kids! A new “supergroup” of French producers has formed, and their name is Slow Hours. Lain, Kultur, Astre, Khamsin, Kidswaste, and Rusty Hook have combined their bountiful talent to give us Slow Hour’s first track, a turbulently exhilarating and tremulously gripping remix of What So Not and Ganz’s Lone, featuring JOY. This ruffled intense bass and trap remix is wildly tempestuous yet chromatically stunning, a ferocious gleaming eruption of gut punching beauty. What So Not promises a full Divide and Conquer remix package soon. In the meantime, you can stream or purchase that EP, here. Slow Hours’ Lone remix can be downloaded free, here.

Not only does this next breathtaking beauty feature exquisite vocals turned in by New York’s M. Maggie, but it’s a truly spectacular emotional ride crafted by Parisian producer Khamsin. Space builds eloquently, casting a grand symphonic spell with its orchestral flourishes and M. Maggie’s magnetic voice before peaking with exhilarating future bass drops. Despite its expansive and vast reach, Space feels intimate at its core, particularly during its slow simmering, tender brooding moments. Space is a free download, here.

Khamsin’s Once is at once a delightful surprise. It opens up mellow and ethereal, serene and halcyon, but it soon picks up some major sass and intensive spunk as wavy electro trap kicks in heavy and resolute. The French producer links up with Chicago’s Layna on the track, who we’ve previously melted to on Kultur’s Keep Me. Khamsin offers up a poetic description of Once: “The calm after the chaos. The end of the journey. Love is no more, we are back to the initial point.”  This beauty of a future bass and chill trap song is the second single from Khamsin’s forthcoming debut EP, Leaving. Snag the track from various outlets, here.
