Marshmello and Selena Gomez’s majestic collaboration Wolves may have been released near the end of last year, but it quickly made such a commotion and climbed the charts so fast that it became one of 2017′s biggest crossover hits. There’s no forgetting that amazing AMA performance, either. As I’ve already said a handful of times, some incredible remixes have been spawned by the hit single. Canadian producer Vincent offered up a stunning future bass and chill trap configuration soon after the single’s release. Check out the track, here. And now, Los Angeles based producer Crystalize has precipitated his own take out of Vincent’s remix, giving it a softer edge and a some fluid whorling beauty with his future bass makeover. That’s right, this is a remix of a remix, an evolution of an evolution. Benjamin David of Crystalize explains that once he heard Vincent’s remix, he felt so connected that he knew he had to put his own spin on it. Crystalize’s heart-stopping, dramatic sweeping edit is a free download, here.

We tend to be drawn to Smoke Season and their sultry burning brand of noire-pop. Wolves is no different, a sexy simmering slice of ruddy impassioned, dark bewitching pop that brings in plenty of indie electro elements and a whole lot of rock flair, too. The Los Angeles duo recently shared a music video for the single, which showcases vintage fashion revamped and stylized by lead singer Gabrielle Wortman. The video also features guest appearances by Luna Lovebad (trangender fashion icon / model), Nicole Stark (actress), and Bella Graham (fashion strategist / journalist). It’s a fittingly chic video for the foxy tune. Smoke Season recently announced a merchandise line featuring one-of-a-kind vintage styles designed by lead singer, Gabrielle Wortman. The line’s first round of merchandise sold out within 12 hours of being launched. You can grab Wolves as a single, here.

There’s no denying that Selena Gomez and Marshmello’s Wolves is one of the biggest electronica and pop hybrids of the year. It’s a majestic and regal beauty, with a lot of heartfelt emotion bursting through Selena Gomez’s crystalline vocals. As such, countless remixes of the track have surfaced lately. Boulevarde, a gifted production duo from Sydney, has given Wolves a phenomenal remix that stays true to the original’s epic windswept vibes while amplifying its energy to create a euphorically riveting, exultant marching future trap aria. You can subscribe to Boulevarde’s website, here, to receive a free download of their Wolves remix and a DJ edit.

I know everyone’s fawning endlessly over Selena Gomez and Marshmello’s hit collaboration, Wolves, but let’s take a moment to gape at the epic re-fix lessismoore has given the track. The Atlanta producer gives the track a grittier beat and pumps up its energy on his thunderous rumbling, sonorous thumping trap and bass remix. These “wolves” run with glorious ferocity, their feet pounding hard into the ground as the wind whistles by in high intensity. lessismoore has even made the track a free download for our eager ears, here.

Two British singer songwriter and production acts have teamed up to form new duo WØLVES to entrap our ears with their combined musical talent.  Aaron London and New Machine’s first track as a united front is an exceptional cover of Drake’s Blem. Deep rumbling beats and dark synths abound on their moody seductive rendition, which they’ve described as a deep house and 80′s soul influenced take on the original. I’m left hungry for more from the pair and curious as to what original material these WØLVES might be cooking up.

It’s been over a year since an artist from Southern California by the name of Leeuw stole my heart with her debut single, Waters, a delicately haunting electronic pop song produced by Wolves. I was so taken by that song that I’ve been waiting for a second jewel from the golden voiced songbird since. Though a year seems like a long time to wait, BLU has been worthy of my patience. On BLU, Leeuw partners back up with producer Wolves to create more heart rending, softly aching pop. BLU is one of five songs that Leeuw will be releasing on an EP this summer. Leeuw explains that she associates people, moods, and feelings with certain colors, and when she thinks back on memories, such as a simple night shared, or an unforgettable conversation, “those memories tend to flash back with several types of tones. It’s as if each person or situation gets a specific shining aurora.” Are you sure you don’t have synaesthesia, Leeuw? I wouldn’t be surprised if she did, considering the exquisite beauty of her music, so brittle fragile and softly melting. Blu is available as a single now, from iTunes.

I’m impatiently counting down the days to May 31st. That night, I finally get to see Lostboycrow live, and I’m even more giddy excited for it now that he’s revealed a new song named Thursday. While I meant to share Thursday yesterday (which was, of course, Thursday), some live music commitments barred me from completing the task. So, guess what? We’re going to listen to Thursday on Friday! It really makes no difference when you dive into the milky thrumming warmth of this tune. Thursday is a creamy swooner any day of the week. Though the song is as velveteen seductive as any of Lostboycrow’s many other stellar ballads, it’s also an upbeat dance groover. Thursday even has some future tropical going on, making it a luxuriant and mellifluous summer Casanova. Lostboycrow links up with producer and fellow Los Angeles resident Wolves on his latest gem. Thursday has never felt more divine and romantic, and it now stands out as an extra special day of the week.

Time flies, and it’s been eight months since a sultry songstress from Southern California named Leeuw (pronounced lay-u) took my breath away with a  debut single named Waters, produced by her friend Wolves. I’d been taken by the song so much that I even selected it for a guest segment on Grant Owen’s radio and podcast show We Found New Music soon afterwards as one of five songs I loved. I’ve been waiting to hear more from Leeuw since, and though I must be patient for some time longer, I’m happy to announce that Leeuw has released a music video for Waters, one as full of sensual passion and bittersweet emotion as the song itself. Waters builds from fragile delicacy to blistering peaks, its rousing electropop voluptuousness intertwined with Leeuw’s rich and captivating voice. I’ll never tire of this song. Leeuw is reportedly working on a debut EP, so this must mean new music is on its way.

I Heart Moosiq had the honorable pleasure of premiering some heart rending gems by a Liverpool alt folk duo named Katie and I over the course of this year. The duo melt and stir with breathtaking harmonies drenched in dewy-eyed sentiment. Today, Katie and I unveiled their Wolves EP, which pulls together their work over the past months, accompanied by a captivating live video for their gorgeous ballad, Wolves. Watch the video above, which was filmed in an abandoned school hall. Their beautifully moving acoustic performance of Wolves are reminiscent of stripped down and more anguished Oh Wonder, but the piano ballad’s melodic melancholy also reminds me of Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World’s Say Something. Head over to Soundcloud to stream Katie and I’s four track Wolves EP, then purchase the release on iTunes. The Wolves EP includes previously premiered gems, Quicksand and Bones.

I’m riding high on my Warriors’ Western Conference Finals win in the NBA Playoffs, and what better song to share right now than one remixed by Oakland’s own KRNE? The producer dropped an edit of Kanye’s unreleased track Wolves. Fittingly enough, Yeezus was in attendance at Oracle tonight, along with Lil B The Based God. The music deities were on the Dubs side indeed. KRNE expertly morphs Wolves into a dramatically atmospheric future bass and trap jam, while enlisting MOONZz for the vocals on the booming, thumping flip. It’s a magnificent edit well worthy of a triumphant evening.
