Katy Perry and Purity Ring are two things I never thought to put together in a sentence, yet here we are, about to delve deep into a remix of the pop star’s hit song Rise by the adored dark electronic pop duo from Canada. Purity Ring gives Rise an official remix that takes it into haunting goth territory. This witch house-y Rise is in fact a bustling dance edit despite its syrupy quality. It even boasts a touch of tropical future flavor in its profile. If I were Left Shark, I’d don some black apparel and an eerie cape in celebration of this deliciously opaque edit. I wouldn’t mind if more Katy Perry songs received a similarly dusky treatment.

Last week, North Carolina’s Flagship succeeded at ravishing my heart with their latest passionate single, I Want You, a heart pumping, grandiose stadium rock anthem. Production newcomer Aaron Robertson permeates the vivid, urgently longing alternative song with a weighty cinematic atmosphere that belies his previous operations in the film score business. Aaron’s official remix of I Want You is dramatic and sweeping in a brand new way. He flushes out some of the tightly wound, broiling edge of the original, replacing it with a arresting quality that’s more expansive and thunderous. It’s a lavishly striking and omnipotent offering from the North Carolina based producer, originally from Columbia/Lexington, South Carolina.

Aaron Robertson graduated from USC. He’s been friends and musical acquaintances with Flagship for years, and he fell in love with I Want You once the band showed him the song. It’s that same love which lends itself well to stimulating the natural flow of inspiration, as it does even when writing about music. The end result of that love shines blazing bright on Aaron’s profoundly resonating remix, an explosion of turbulent, voracious, and eternal aspiration that preserves much of the original’s indie rock greatness, but sheds new light on it. It booms and roars with a vast, cosmic strength. The original is off Flagship’s new EP, Faded, out July 10th on Bright Antenna Records. The band is currently supporting Good Old War on tour.

Chicago duo Milk N Cookies are back and still on point in their remix game with this edit of The Ready Set’s Freakin’ Me Out. They said that they heard the song at the gym on an advertisement and was immediately taken by its catchiness. The remix turned out to be Milk N Cookies’ first official big label endorsed remix, so some congratulations are in order. The banging tune is a delicious balance between heart warming indie electronic and first pumping, vibrant house.
