It’s no secret that Sweater Beats loves his alt rock and emo rock. In fact, we love him even more because of it, since we share much of that same nostalgic ardor after having spent our early to mid-2000′s addicted to a steady diet of MCR, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, and so much more. I’d imagine Antonio was quite happy to be tapped for an official Fall Out Boy remix. The truth is, Fall Out Boy is lucky to have him on board their new official remix EP. The Los Angeles based producer, who’s ridiculously versatile, as you well know from our countless features over the years (including most recently, his new song with Icona Pop, Faded Away), has given FOB’s Hold Me Tight a melodic and cinematic trap work-over profusely packed with slick whizzing, brisk zestful energy. If you’re secretly hoping that Fall Out Boy and Louis The Child would work together to make a hybrid alt rock/dance song, Sweater Beats’ remix will be more than satisfy your craving. You can also stream the track on Spotify, here.

Sweater Beats and Icona Pop together is a dream come true, particularly since it’s been so long since we heard from the Swedish electropop duo, plus we haven’t had a new tune from the Los Angeles electronic producer for awhile, either. Faded Away is a punchy biting, chipper romping track bursting with bubbly energy, with sheared synths and brittle, peppery beats. The youthful frolicking jam blends radiant elements and shadowy tones, and it comes with a fabulous music video whose retro animation is a wonderful throwback to classic video games. Faded Away is our new dance obsession. Get it, here.

It’s been a moment since the last time we heard from one of our long time production favorites, Sweater Beats, whom we had the pleasure of dancing to and chatting with the last time he was in town at the legendary Fillmore last fall. You can catch our interview with the esteemed producer, here. Any length of time without some new Sweater Beats in our lives is far too excruciatingly long. So, we’re utterly overjoyed that he’s finally returned with a glorious new remix. MAX has been a ubiquitous name in the music scene this past year, whether as a guest vocalist, or as one half of Party Pupils, or on his own solo releases. The New Yorker left us melting into the floor with his moody simmering ballad Meteor late last year, and now Sweater Beats has transformed the track into an urgent and intense, dark and cinematic future bass anthem rippling with booming bass, jagged percussion, and heart-stopping drops. We know that Sweater Beats is quite the chameleon shape-shifter from all the different types of music he’s given us over the years. His new remix of MAX’s Meteor serves as a striking reminder that we can expect a fresh flurry of immensely gratifying and unpredictably compelling releases this year. Stream/purchase Sweater Beats’ remix via major platforms, here.

Producers Sweater Beats and BKAYE have united with pop siren Alyson Stoner for their own version of Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson’s smash single Symphony, and it’s as euphoric lifting as can be. Not only have they remixed the song, but this is a lavish cover, too. Their victorious and triumphant future bass remix features swelling synths and resounding bass. It’s a lift your hands high up into the sky and celebrate all that is life sort of electronic symphony, a tour de force eruption of high flying energy. Download the track for free, here.

This fall is shaping up to be an epic season of live music, with renowned and esteemed producers announcing tours left and right. Who’s excited for Sweater Beats’ tour with Giraffage and Wingtip? I know we are! News of this forthcoming adventure arrives with a fresh new remix from the Los Angeles based producer. Sweater Beats offers up a fierce re-work of Evalyn’s Filthy Rich, morphing its snazzy sophisticated R&B pop into electrifying future bass and cinematic thrilling trap. “I thought you knew I’m filthy rich,”  coos Evalyn on her song. We’re filthy rich, too! Rich in sonic wealth of all kinds, thanks to both her and Sweater Beats. You can download the ravishing remix, here.

Los Angeles’ Sweater Beats, aside from gracing our pages for many a year with his versatile compositions and groundbreaking productions, keeps linking up with some of our favorite vocalists and artists this year, too! He partnered up with Nashville sensation R.LUM.R earlier this year on Altar, then lent his production prowess to RKCB’s Bloom. Now, Sweater Beats has enlisted popular pop starlet Hayley Kiyoko for her dulcet vocals on irresistible future pop anthem Glory Days! Glory Days is a frisky lunging, melodic thrumming song that will surely be an electronic hit of the summer with its massive hooks and ebullient energy. It’s probably the most pop-centric song we’ve heard from Sweater Beats in all our years of following his music, and we’re loving this grandiose crossover magnificence. Glory Days is indeed GLORIOUS. Glory Days is out on Big Beat, stream and purchase at major outlets, here.

We’ve been treated to some fine collaborations involving RKCB these past months, including the R&B soul project’s song with Ariana and the Rose,  Love You Lately, as well as a guest apperance on Louis Futon’s Surreal. But nothing beats a fresh new RKCB single. The LA based duo returns with creamy aplomb on satin warbling, hypnotic textured Bloom, a consuming squall of passion and desire. Ever amazing Sweater Beats turns in dazzling co-production duties on the seductive gem. RKCB’s latest swooning single is out now on iTunes.

This long time supporter of buzzing Nashville R&B talent R.LUM.R is still glowing from experiencing his creamy stirring, gooey rousing music live at SXSW. It was such a pleasure and honor to have been operations manager when R.LUM.R performed at WFNM’s official showcase. My heart skipped a beat today when I saw that R.LUM.R had lent his voice to a new Sweater Beats song. Altar is a ravishing combination of Sweater Beats’ finespun future beats wizardry and R.LUM.R’s high flying, buttery sweeping vocals. It rolls smoothly and surges grandly, taking us on an emotionally charged ride that perfectly melds acoustic elements, like searing guitar lines, with lavish percussion and warbling synths. We’ll be looking out for more news regarding Sweater Beats’ highly anticipated For The Cold EP, especially after this! It’s expected to arrive later this year, hopefully sooner than later.

Now that 2016 is almost at an end, Los Angeles production prodigy Sweater Beats is about finished with his latest tour. Instead of putting on a sad face and surrendering yourself to the thought that we won’t get any new tunes till 2017, let’s celebrate the fact that a spectacular remix of satin swooning Did You Wrong, featuring MAX, has arrived. Fast rising SoCal producer FRND gives us his take on the jam, thrilling our senses with a buoyant and effervescent future bass treatment. You can grab your copy of FRND’s remix from various services, here.

I’m wildly fond of Sweater Beats’ recent collaborations, including the Brooklyn producer’s partnership with Australia’s Nicole Millar and D.C. whiz kid Imad Royal on Better. If anyone’s going to take that track on for a loop around the remix track, they’d “better” do an ace job. Berkeley’s own Ben Maxwell teams up with Los Angeles’ SLOVES to turn in exactly just that as they smooth out the gritty edges of the original on a gorgeously mellifluous remix. This fresh and creative take sports a ravishing drop that reminds me of Louis The Child. Download Ben Maxwell and SLOVES’ remix for free, here.
