I’ve seen and listened to a million remixes of ‘Royals‘ and I think it’s safe to say most of us are tired of that song and its endless amount of remixes. But this is the first remix of ‘Glory & Gore’ that I’ve heard. In fact it’s the first time I’ve heard of this Lorde song. Nonetheless, Unlike Pluto delivers a stellar trap remix of ‘Glory & Gore’ by Lorde. Unlike Pluto is a 22 year old producer who currently lives in LA, but he was born in raised in Atlanta, GA. ATL Represent! Anyway, his remix does a fine job of incorporating Lorde’s distinct and fantastic vocals. I’m addicted to the build which makes great use of a guitar. What I like about this remix is Unlike Pluto gives the track a lot of energy, but it is not in your face or overwhelming. One pet peeve of mine is when producers create trap tunes that are just too overwhelming and are a burden on your ears. Unlike Pluto does the exact opposite of this, but he still allows the track to pack a punch. I’m in love with this remix, and I’ve been listening to it multiple times a day since he released it on his Soundcloud a few days ago. Unlike Pluto has many other great remixes and originals. He’s a really unique producer, and he doesn’t stick to just one or two genres. He tries many different genres and styles which gives me great respect for him. Unlike Pluto has a little something for everyone, so y’all should check out some of his other material. Plus almost all of his remixes and originals are available for free download, so you can listen to them where ever you’d like! To start though, give his remix of ‘Glory & Gore’ by Lorde a listen. Like many of his other tracks, ‘Glory & Gore’ is a free download so grab it and enjoy!
I love ‘Fight For You’ by Morgan Page; it’s a classic house tune, and Morgan Page was one of the first house djs I listened to. However, APX delivers a remix of ‘Fight For You’ that might even be better than the original mix. APX is a rising producer from Switzerland, and his remixes are absolute gold. A few months ago he released his remix of ‘Escape’ by 3LAU and Paris & Simo that is one of the best remixes I’ve heard this year; it is also one of my favorite progressive house remixes of all-time. Once again APX delivers and does not let us down; APX’s progressive house remix of ‘Fight For You’ is also stellar. He adds a great deal of energy to the track which puts a different but great spin on the original. The verses are beautiful with the melody he creates behind Lissie’s vocals while the chorus and drops bring a ton of progressive house energy. He leaves I can see this remix being a huge hit in clubs and festivals worldwide. If you’re a fan of Morgan Page or progressive house in general then chances are you will enjoy this remix. Lately, he’s been super busy in the studio working on remixes and original mixes. In the last month he’s come out with a few other remixes, and one month ago he came out with his Sleepless EP which you can download for free on his Soundcloud. Also, If you love progressive house you should definitely check out his Soundcloud page because it is a goldmine of free progressive house gems. APX has so much talent and potential because all of his material is great. I feel like it is only a matter of time before he blows up and becomes a big name. It’ll be exciting to see what the future has in store for him. APX is also awesome enough to give his remix of Morgan Page’s ‘Fight For You’ as a free download. Give it a listen, download it, and enjoy!
Local favorite Brennen Bryarly aka option4 has done it again with his newest remix on pop favorites Great Good Fine Ok’s track You’re The One For Me. option4 has certainly been on a roll this year and we are stoked to see him squeeze in one more track before the new year, but at his current pace I wouldn’t be surprised if Brennen has more for us before the dawn of 2014. option4 begins the track with some beautiful airy vocal samples that continue throughout the track only to be quickly complemented by a super fun bouncy beat that fits like a glove. We have seen a lot of amazing original production from option4 as of late, but this remix is nothing short of a gorgeous “feel good lover jam” as Bryarly put it. The use of synths and light orchestral sampling combined with the original lyrics will leave you floating on a cloud, while the super fun bass line is sure to keep the dance floor alive. Check out option4‘s Soundcloud for loads of awesome free music and keep an on his Facebook for show dates and much more!
I first started following the cleverly named Follow Me duo after their hair tingling remix of Johnny Stimson’s Daddy’s Money was swept up in the musical blog world, and for good reason I might add. After that initial knockout I patiently waited for Joe Spagna and Anthony Vertullo to come back at us as they hone in on their electronic skills that now cover everything from R&B and soul to indie and funk. Follow Me brought everyday that the HAERTS were talking about to the beach with this remix that is full of those oh so desired tropical grooves. The remix is a great refresher as the original track was released six months ago in the height of summer and with all this cold weather coming, I will take the imaginary sand between my toes whenever I can get it!
The king of summertime all the time has returned to the studio and dropped another crisp island inspired remix making 2013 Viceroy’s biggest year yet. This time Viceroy brings his tropical vibe to the Strange Talks original Climbing Walls and does not disappoint. Maintaining the original feel and vocals Viceroy works his magic by adding a great snare line and additional bass and synths that seem to give the track much more energy then the original. Super catchy vocals and a fun bouncy beat radiate out of Viceroy’s newest poolside remix providing some much needed mental warmth mid winter. Grab the free download below and make sure to follow Viceroy on Soundcloud because it’s Summertime All The Time!
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new from the laser fan boys, Savoy, most likely because they’ve been on a nonstop whirl wind of a tour. As they plan for another round of tour dates, hitting college towns across the country, they shed light on what we can expect on new music from the Colorado homies. Savoy announced a full length album, “Self Predator” that will be released on January 14th.. one can only hope they will offer it up for free like most of their other releases. The first track to come off the album is a VIP edit from their huge single I’m in Need, a fantastic single they released at the height of the dubstep craze. Continue reading for their entire tour schedule to see if they are headed your way!
