I was traipsing through Soundcloud nonchalantly like I always do in the mornings while fast at work, when I encountered this sick track that I knew I had to hop on to share immediately. The lightning bolt jolt that it’s brought me is way better than any rush the coffee I’m having right now could ever give. All hail Pon De Time, Wuki’s absolutely genius mashup of Daft Punk’s timeless hit One More Time and Major Lazer’s 2009 dance classic Pon De Floor. French electro, steely future house, and dancehall meld together exceptionally in Wuki’s hands to become the most exhilarating mashup I’ve come across in ages. Pon De Floor is a free download, here.

It takes a lot of time to share all the music that we feature, and sometimes, we let the big tunes slide, just because there’s simply not enough time to write up EVERYTHING good. Plus, the well established artists probably don’t need us to help get the word out about tunes. But this one, though it involves bigwigs like Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, and Tory Lanez, is far too good to leave off our pages. You’d think something involving all three juggernauts would be a very busy, very bustling tune, especially with Cashmere Cat and Major Lazer on deck, but the trio go a more toned down post-EDM/R&B house route on the waxy seductive jam. In fact, Miss You is a cover re-work of Palmistry’s phenomenal single Lifted, which you can stream here, if you need a refresher on how amazing that song is. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, and Tory Lanez’s Miss You arrives by lyric video, and its bass rumbling warmth and velutinous drawl are reminiscent of rising Moving Castle star SAKIMA. Grab the single, here.

There’s no way I can resist a good future bass and chill trap remix, and Cafe Disko and Neonhund’s new collaborative effort is simply too well crafted too ignore. The production acts take on much remixed new Major Lazer hit Cold Water, employing new vocals by Chicago based singer songwriter Doug Bako in the process. The end result of this group endeavor is a graceful pumping, heartfelt stirring combination of regal strings and choppy beats, another fine stand out addition to the growing list of Cold Water remixes. Their remix is a free download, here.

Oh, hey! It’s another remix of Cold Water featuring additional layers of sound! There’s obviously a trend with the Major Lazer hit going on. Except in this case, we get to hear the Bieber and MØ featuring tune from a future bass angle, thanks to 16 year old Floridian producer Jupe. Most of what we’ve heard up till now were chill tropical edits. Jupe’s lustrous chopping remix, which features Giant Spirit on sultry simmering guitar, is a shot straight for my future bass and chill trap loving heart. The producer has designed a cool summery remix whose scintillating effervescence leave the whole of my being tingling in ecstasy. Download Jupe’s Cold Water remix, here.

As expected, within days from the arrival of Major Lazer’s sure to be world dominating new hit, Cold Water, a gate has swung wide open. On the other side of the gate and quickly pushing through to our eager ears are a growing brigade of remixes, many of them featuring alternate vocals or additional vocals on top of MØ and Justin Bieber’s voices. Major Lazer’s summer anthem goes deep house on a heartwarming remix by Norwegian producer SJUR. This softly springing, tenderly hopping jam and its tropical and future inflections also features silken vocals by German act The Crones. SJUR’s remix is a free download, here.

Truth be told, I’ve been waiting for a remix of sure to be gargantuan new Major Lazer hit Cold Water since the track surfaced late last week. The song’s obviously going to be one of the biggest anthems of summer and fall, and its sheer power has only been amplified by the two guest vocalists on the song, Bieber and long time IHM darling, Danish pop star . German producer Koni offers up the first new revision of Cold Water to grace IHM, except this isn’t just any ol’ remix. This is practically a complete remake, a cover that involves Lea Beiley and Nick de la Hoyde on vocals as well as J. Roosevelt and EZY Lima on co-production. Cold Water takes on a lightness in this chill house rework. This cold water is warm and gooey, weightless and wistful, summery and breezy. A laid back rap verse adds to the mellow charm of this fabulously unique experience. Koni’s creative version of Cold Water is a free download, here.

It’s a witty engaging mashup cover of sorts that ever talented and compelling London based artist Leo Kalyan gives us on Lean On & On. How he came up with this one is mind boggling indeed, but Leo Kalyan pairs Erykah Badu’s On & On with Major Lazer & MØ’s world conquering hit Lean On for his masterful R&B soul aria. The molten velour of Leo Kalyan’s cooing comes as no surprise considering the same effect he’s brought us on past songs. By pairing it with a spacious atmospheric, ethereal misty electronic soundscape, Leo Kalyan gives us a very forward thinking, groundbreaking approach on two much contrasting songs. Lean On & On can be downloaded from it’s Soundcloud page

It’s been well established that Katy B’s upcoming album, Honey, is a star studded affair to be very much excited over. We’ve already heard collaborations with Four Tet, Floating Points, and Kaytranada off the album. Now, we get to hear the British chanteuse, whose early roots were in dubstep, go R&B soulful alongside Craig David and Major Lazer on Who Am I. Craig David, who may have made one of the biggest comebacks of the decade, is a fine addition to a Honey track with his honey smooth vocals. Major Lazer turns in restrained but luxuriantly beautiful production. And Katy B, alongside Craig David? Perfection. It seems the stars have aligned fortuitously for our listening pleasure. Honey drops April 29th. I think it’s safe to count it as one of the highly anticipated albums of spring. Head over to iTunes to snag the tracks revealed off Honey so far.
