At a time when 98% of all buzzing remixes seem to subscribe to the future bass and trap craze that’s taken over the electronic music scene, two Bay Area production heroes have chosen to give us a refreshing approach on Swedish duo Galantis’ latest hit single, Hunter. MyKill and Party Ben unite for an 80′s inspired take on the track, dealing out an electro house meets synthcore thrill ride. The dramatic throbbing, vibrant pulsing remix stirs me into a glorious and extravagant dance frenzy.

I was incredibly happy earlier this year when dance pop duo Midi Matilda made a fine return on wildly infectious new song Tidal Wave, easily one of the most catchy synthpop jams this year. In a Bay Area loaded affair, San Francisco’s MyKill has unveiled a new remix of the song. As if it wasn’t already an impossible task to resist dancing to the original, MyKill has me grooving enthusiastically to his radiant wave of strutting nu-disco and balmy indie house. This remix is as pool party or beach festivities ready as they come. Download the track, here, and dance to your heart’s content while we wait for Midi Matilda’s new album.

It’s time for some local pride as we turn to San Francisco’s MyKill, who collaborates with fellow Bay producer Kue for some heavenly deep disco thrills on resplendent Let’s Ride. It’s Sunday funday for me right now grooving out to this funky electrifier, one that’s already received support from the likes of The Knocks and Cosmo Baker. It’s no big surprise that The Knocks digs the jam’s crunchy guitar, lustrous synths, and thumping beats as I do; I can see it fitting right into a The Knocks DJ set, next to Classic and Brightside. Let’s Ride is available for free, here.

I’m a big fan of Rationale’s luxuriant, stirring song Fast Lane. In fact, it’s my favorite song so far from the East London based producer, ignoring the fact that Rationale only has two singles out to date. San Francisco’s MyKill does a magnificent job remixing Fast Lane, speeding up the tempo robustly. We hop into a considerably faster lane on this one, where springy steps are much more bouncy, and vocals far more urgent. MyKill’s remix is gloriously sublime, a splendid nu-disco meets deep house makeover that has me dancing in euphoria.

Genre defying Los Angeles based duo Magic Bronson dropped a Wildlife remix bundle, free to download, that includes several dope renditions of their infectious tunes. Off the three track release comes a remix of their insanely infectious song Fences by SF Bay’s own MyKill. Having gotten used to some of MyKill’s previously featured tunes, which were very summery and dreamy tunes, I was quite surprised to hear this indie dance edit that bounces with a light step and a more crisp and airy liveliness. Entrancing and euphoric, MyKill’s Fences is a colorful splash of whimsical, infectious fun. The remix was also mastered by another Bay Area talent, Party Ben.

Seductive San Francisco electronic pop and R&B act 8th Grader recently gave us a single named Morro Bae, and yesterday saw the release of a killer remix EP full of sizzling hot tracks. Canadian producer JNL’s intoxicating remix is a steamy synthfunk and chic nu-disco version that takes the track to Prince meets Justice and Daft Punk electro house territory. For another terrific remix off the EP, stream San Francisco producer MyKill’s remix of Morro Bae below. He takes the bae on a balmy summer vacation with a much deeper house bounce and an abundance of neon lit funky swag. Head over to soundcloud to listen to the full remix pack, including many more stellar edits by Kue, Party Ben, and MILK parade (aka Keith Walker, who previously collaborated with MyKill on some fantastic tunes). Oh, and get ready to dance.

Walker, of the Holy Coast, and San Francisco producer MyKill, have teamed back up for a new one after lulling me into some foggy, summery reveries last year. New tune A Golden Light is quickly becoming one of my favorite MyKill & Walker tunes. Less hazy than some of the earlier tracks, A Golden Light carries a snappier, crisper disco dance beat. The track is still imbued with much of their deliciously Balearic, tropical atmosphere. It’s also incredibly catchy and luxurious. Lavish, sugared, and plush, MyKill & Walker certainly raise the ambrosial level on this one.

San Francisco’s very own MyKill has given us some fantastic songs this year to drift away into dream land with, from a remix of Goldroom’s Till Sunrise, to several treats with The Holy Coast’s Walker. Summer may have ended, but MyKill is back again to take us on a warm reverie with These Moments. The producer sampled from a 1980’s film named Body Double, directed by the always interesting Brian De Palma. If you’re familiar with De Palma’s films, they do tend to carry a certain balmy atmosphere. It’s quite brilliant of MyKill to take that sound and craft such a dreamy, resplendent tune, so sublimely weightless and airy. Its light groove nearly makes me want to jump out of my seat, grab a flowy, sheer bedsheet, and start twirling around with it.

We got our first whiff of Los Angeles producer Goldroom’s new Mammals featuring single Till Sunrise a week ago, when San Francisco’s MyKill unveiled an upbeat, extra tropical remix take on the tune. Now, we get to listen to Josh Legg’s original, a more dreamy and hazy listen, and certainly one of Goldroom’s most downtempo jams, venturing into chillwave regions.
