Madonna – Hung Up (Unknown Associates & Colour Castle Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

How about a nice groovy Deep House tune to get your week started? No club bangers here, but some nice blissful Deep House perfect for winding down your night or for play by the pool. Our friend Boyd Barnes, who is a member of Unknown Associates out of Sydney/Wollongong, sent me this track today. It’s a remix Unknown Associates did with fellow Aussie Colour Castle (whose remix of “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” I posted last year) of one of their favorite Madonna tracks “Hung Up”. The whole Unknown collective is celebrating its second birthday and they are preparing to drop their Dance Education Vol. 2 EP very soon.

I’m quite impressed by the work Boyd, Trent Elliott and their team do and they’ve only continued to get bigger and better. From the excellent House tracks to the live set I had the pleasure of seeing Boyd spin at the Holy Ship preparty this year, things seem to be going in the right direction for our friends down under! Make sure to grab the free download HERE and check out the EP when it drops!

The Rooftop Boys really utilize a wide variety of sounds without cluttering the track yet still maintaining a solid and energetic pace from start to finish. Nicely sampled vocals from the original are sure to keep any crowd chanting along to the beat, so head over to The Rooftop Boys Soundcloud and grab yourself a copy of this one for free. We cannot wait to see what this budding east coast duo has in store for the future, hopefully more of the same!

George Maple – Talk Talk [Moon Boots Remix]

The spaceman returns with a beautiful remix on the George Maple original Talk Talk. With a low and slow bass-line and airy vocals this track maintains a mellow but great vibe from start to finish. While we have come to love Moon Boots more up beat pieces it is really nice to see him showcase all his abilities with this melodic charmer of a remix. Slowly ramping up the volume and clarity of the vocals give this piece an exciting build feeling that keeps the listener awaiting and excited for each new section. Sultry synths and well placed keyboard riffs make this remix a true upgrade to the original.

There is just something about the remix that is so enjoyable, maybe it is the familiarness that comes as we may have previously enjoyed the piece as an original. The remix is a powerful tool for artists today as they are able to take a track and put their own twist on something that people can only enjoy more in many cases. It is also a chance to breathe fresh air into songs of the past that may have escaped our generation for one reason or another.

Classic artists like Diplo and Big G continue to make this list while they are joined by the young guns Kygo, Hotel Garuda and SNBRN.
