We might as well be dancing in the Caribbean right now as we bask in the tropical beauty of this gorgeous remix from Danish producer JOEL. He’s given Norwegian siren Ina Wroldsen a balmy dance makeover on his summery edit of the buzzing artist’s single, Strongest. Sia meets Shakira as Ina Wroldsen serenades us with her exquisite voice over JOEL’s luminously buoyant house. The mellifluously lifting deep house remix is a free download, here.

Enigmatic South London sonic magician &around, who first surfaced several months ago with a warm glowing house/pop hybrid named Dreaming All Night, has followed up that debut in fitting style with soothing Without Your Love. He envelopes us with warmth and radiance on the track, flawlessly blending chill tropical house with synthy pop on the endearing track. Despite its phosphorescence and blissed out balminess, there’s a melancholic wistfulness to the song, too. The singer songwriter and producer, who’s been ensconced in the studio working on his new material, explains: 

“I wrote the original song idea in Bali during a tropical storm I got to New Zealand about a month later and recorded a vocal sample of a woman singing to Maori gods next to the largest tree in the world (Tāne Mahuta) which sounded great dropped into this demo, so I booked a studio just outside Aukland in NZ parked outside in my campervan with my girlfriend for a couple days and finished tracking the song. it’s about realising how sad it would be being away from someone you love – when they’ve become such a big part of your life.” You can re-visit our feature of &around’s debut single, here.

A potently moving spectrum of electronica takes hold of us as we dive into All Day Long, a collaboration involving rising Chi-town producer SEPPIE and ear perking newcomer AERGØ. From fervent pounding progressive house to deep summery house, lush flickering melodic trap to wavy synthpop, this powerhouse anthem’s got it all. I could let it whisk me off my feet, “all day long”. It’s an uplifting and exhilarating aural experience, and it’s a free download, here.

Last summer, Romanian producer Boehm put forth a summer buoyant dance dazzler named Outside The Lines, featuring Laurell on guest vocals. Though it’s now winter, we’re ready for a nice effusion of warmth as German production project Not Your Dope gives the track a fresh update by giving it a robust and ebullient remix that highlights its balmy heat and tropical lushness. The deep pumping, electro prancing edit is part of an official remix pack for the original that also features remixes by rrotik and a VIP by Boehm himself. We’re on the cusp of a deep freeze tonight that will make tomorrow one of the coldest days of the year. This seems the perfect time to drop on Not Your Dope’s broiling remix.

We’re always serious when we’re deep in the midst of extolling Just Kidding’s suave production talent and exhilarating tunes. There’s nothing to joke about when it comes to the pair’s song-crafting and beats-smithing prowess. This continues to ring true as the British duo rocks our socks off with their new house jam, Indiana, a rambunctious dance floor filler drizzled with creamy falsettos and coated in a whole lot of showy sleek, bright sparkling tropical disco flamboyance. I’ve never been to the Midwestern state of Indiana, and I don’t normally consider it one of the top states I want to see, but this is an Indiana I’d love to make a trip out for.

There’s something magical about the city of Los Angeles. It embodies both hope and devastation, naivety and jadedness. As such, it’s spawned so many songs of all kinds, some joyous, some crestfallen. Brighton based producer OKO and honeyed songstress Rosie Darling paid tribute to L.A. on a song of the same name, and now SISTEK, a producer from Chile, has given the track a sparkly, airy remix that oozes summer nostalgia and aching pining. Despite its melancholic undertones, the balmy melodic house remix also lifts our spirits with its crisp prance and glowing warmth. The remix is out now on Aux Records, and you can download it for free, here

Who doesn’t love Nena’s 99 Red Balloons, originally 99 Luftballons in German? It’s an utterly infectious frolic, a timeless classic from the 80′s that never seems to get old or obsolete no matter how much time has passed. Swedish producer Oliver Nelson and fellow Swede Tobtok partner up on a revival of the track. They’ve given the endearing tune a bright and airy future funk and tropical disco re-work, featuring vocals by London’s River. 99 Red Balloons is a heartwarming, spirit lifting treat to take with us into the weekend. It’s impossible to be dour or downcast when such a buoyant and jubilant track is coursing through our ears. Grab a copy or stream via alternate platforms, here.

We’ve been sharing Tep No’s music for several years now, and it’s rare that we ever fall short on extolling one of the Toronto producer and musician’s fine compositions. What started out as a love affair with Tep No’s chill melodic electronica has since bloomed into a full on obsession with his resourceful versatility, as demonstrated on new single I’m Evil, which sees him venturing into more tropical future soundscapes with the spry frisky, punchy electrifying anthem. The tantalizing tune is playful and sprightly, which is night and day from some of his earlier offerings. Even if an inkling of Tep No is actually “evil” we wouldn’t believe it, not when the producer can make us feel the glorious way we feel with such a synth pumping swooner and his dashing R&B pop vocals. Continue jamming out to Tep No on Soundcloud, here.

Steve Void’s label Strange Fruits is at it again, presenting us with choice cuts from the electronic scene as part of a steady and reliable diet of fine tracks from the imprint. This time around, they highlight a song named Right Now from Australia’s Tom Budin and Toronto’s DLMT, who come together to give us a deep house anthem that nearly feels like a combination of Bastille and


gone springy vibrant, summer balmy house. Right Now can also be streamed via Spotify, here, and it’s a free download, here.

I’m convinced we could all use some saving, considering how topsy turvy our world is these days. What else can heal the heart and lift the soul but a beautifully captivating new electronic single from Germany’s Koni, who’s a proven expert when it comes to bright balmy, warm radiant house? He partners with buttery voiced crooner James Delaney and dulcet vocalist Gabriella on Save Us, a breezy tropical, iridescent glimmering sonic potion which Koni describes as deeply personal to him, as it tells the story of his broken relationship.
