My heart near leaped out of my chest when k?d first teased a Porter Robinson remix, it was beating that fast with excitement. The elusive producer is easily a favorite of the year, having given us a plethora of spectacular originals and brilliant remixes including a jaw dropping edit of Daft Punk’s Doin It Right. Today, his Sad Machine remix arrives, and it far from disappoints. In fact, it’s thoroughly phenomenal. k?d’s Sad Machine plays on the original’s pastel melancholia, optimizing those wistful feels with a slow building, synth swelling future bass approach that culminates in the most cathartic drops. We’re caught in this epic saga, enclosed in an augmented reality or a celestial daydream in which we’re tossed about by beautiful waves and chops. That heart that almost leaped out of my chest earlier quivers at the mercy of this ruminative sweeping, profound enchanting experience, one which feels boundless and infinite. k?d’s remix is a free download, here.

Who needs the Large Hadron Collider when we have k?d? The incognito producer takes us back to the beginning with a brilliantly expansive original named Birth Of The Universe. If anyone’s ever watched Terrence Malick’s Tree Of Life or even took in the graphic grandeur of Interstellar’s deep space sequences, the same visual magnificence is illustrated aurally by this fast rising electronic virtuoso. Birth Of The Universe fires on all engines, rocketing us back to the beginning of time. We imagine quarks lighting up and galaxies being born, a humbling experience alongside k?d’s vibrant stuttering future beats and prismatic humming electro synths. Science, spirituality, and music unite beautifully and explosively under the tutelage of k?d. We’re left musing over the meaning of life and feeling even more connected to one another as the final pensive piano notes of this masterful opus fade into thin air. Birth Of The Universe is a free download, here.

By now, I’m thoroughly convinced that enigmatic producer k?d can do no wrong. He’s continued to enthrall me endlessly, track after track, week after week, and I simply can’t resist sharing whatever he puts out. While k?d’s remix of Daft Punk’s Doin’ It Right is likely one of the most brilliant edits of the year, all his other remixes are high up on the list, too. Witness his latest edit, a magnificent remix of Annabel Jones’ glossy sleek, crisp pulsing electropop gem Happy. While the original nearly had a spacious PC Music kind of vibe going on, k?d’s remix is an eternal suffusion of vibrant whirring synths and fluxing future bass. Annabel Jones manages to infuse her song with plenty of melancholic wistfulness despite the song’s name and its honeyed veneer. She sings, “tell me something happy, don’t make me sad”. That same emotion arises on k?d’s remix, but in lieu of “telling” us something happy, k?d lifts our spirits and drives away our blues with a dynamic propellant of sonic force. k?d gives us the catalyst that pushes us over a precipice. We free fall, heart pounding in pure exhilaration. Download his remix from Toneden.

The music gods are apparently very much satisfied with us little music loving misfits, because a remix of Manila Killa has arrived on our doorsteps from the incredibly talented, mysteriously masked producer named k?d! Every time I see a new k?d track surfacing these days, my heart skips a beat. I think it may have stopped beating for a full minute when I saw that he’d remixed Manila for his latest treat. Get ready for an intensive experience as k?d transforms Manila Killa’s sparkling enchanting Youth, featuring angelic vocals by Satica, into a grandiose surging, valiant soaring future bass aria. The breathtaking remix is a free download at Toneden.

As it turns out, some sensational remixes of RKCB’s emotive rousing, buttery melting Elevate have been surfacing. I’m still obsessing over Joe Mason’s cathartic remix, which you can find here. But now enigmatic producer k?d has opened up the serotonin and adrenaline floodgates with his genius interpretation, and I can’t stop listening to it, just like I can never get enough of every other track k?d has dropped so far. I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, but k?d is one of the most exciting rising producers on the scene right now. His interpretation of Daft Punk’s Doin It Right is still one of the best remixes this year, and now he goes and does this. k?d’s Elevate is a dramatic masterpiece. It climbs from heart rending chasms to face melting, blood pumping crests of oscillating future bass exhilaration. The elevation is a overwhelming head rush. Everything k?d does is huge. There are few producer’s that leave me ravenous for whatever’s planned next, but I can’t wait to hear what he has up his sleeves next. k?d’s remix of Elevate is a free download here. Lest you missed his remix of Daft Punk’s Doin It Right, I’m tacking it on below, too.

Ever enigmatic k?d is one of my favorite young producers. I mean, seriously, have you even listened to the Daft Punk remix k?d put out a few weeks ago? No? You’d better get on it, here. As such, it was a pleasant surprise when k?d suddenly revealed a debut original, and even more of an unexpected delight is the fact that Somewhere Far Away From Here features fleecy luxurious, whispering soft vocals by golden voiced Los Angeles songbird Lolaby. The cosmic expanse and cinematic gallantry of k?d’s Somewhere Far Away From Here evokes the likes of Illenium and Adventure Club, but doused in the ethereal wonderment of Porter Robinson. Somewhere Far Away From Here is an epic opus with profound depth. Lolaby’s gentle murmuring is soothing and disarming. The hushed message she delivers could be coming from an intimate part of our own subconscious, a representation of our psyche itself. In the meantime in contrast to that familiar intimacy is k?d’s sweeping production. There are no limits to its big blue sky, or its deep watery chasms, or its massive craggy peaks, or its sweeping magnificent tundras. No, there is only beautiful absolution and the tingles of sonic euphoria, reverberating like little shocks of electricity. k?d’s magnificent debut original is a free download, here.

I know I’ve been a broken record when it comes to my repeated praise for anonymous producer k?d, but every track the enigmatic act has released in past weeks has only been increasingly redeeming of my poetics. In fact, today’s mind blowing reveal is full on vindicating, one of the most brilliant remixes I’ve come across in some time. k?d takes on Daft Punk, a brave feat, and this immaculate edit of Random Access Memory hit Doin It Right literally sends shivers down my spine. The future bass and ambient electronic transformation that Daft Punk undergoes under the deft hands of k?d is transcendental, a tactile adventure and dramatic construction that shoots me straight into the space and beyond. k?d’s remix is sheer genius, a wondrous journey across the cosmos and through time. Download this remix for free, here. You might end up listening to it on loop for hours on end. It’s that good.

Mysterious producer k?d continues to make massive waves in the scene by revealing What U Need, a remix of The Weeknd’s What You Need from the superstar’s 2011 album House Of Balloons. Considering how often we hear The Weeknd’s top hits all over the place nowadays, it’s a welcome treat to re-visit one of his “oldies but goodies” via k?d’s intensely scorching remix. Though k?d states that this one is “pretty old”, it’s infinitely fresh and magnetic, a darkly choppy, bristly knotted future bass opus.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… this mysterious producer k?d is doing some magnificent things in the production scene. I’ve shared pretty much all of his remixes that he’s unleashed in the past month, and his latest is not going to escape the IHM treatment, either. k?d takes on GTA smash hit Red Lips, featuring Sam Bruno, for his latest majestic and grand future bass masterpiece. A cascade of rousing synths and intoxicating vocal chops create an enveloping swathe of intoxication that seems to stretch beyond infinity. Download the theatrically compelling remix for free, here.
