Hello. Friday. Remixes.
I don't know what's better. The Chainsmokers' remix of Neon Trees’ latest single Sleeping With A Friend. Or The Chainsmokers' description about actually sleeping with a friend, here.
Here's an idea. Put Chromeo's sultry R&B hooks, classic rock riffs, hilarious & charmingly vulnerable lyrics, and disco funk from their latest single "Jealous" in Dillon Francis's hands to remix? OKAY!
Stint's remix of Q-Tip's "Work It Out" is equal parts about the hook as it is the verses. Stint tells us, "I day walked to get a sandwich and passed a wind chime on one of the only windy days in Venice. It sounded dope so I recorded it and that’s what you hear in the break and end of the track." Eat up!
Thief is the electronic pop brainchild of PJ Wolf, who traded in his guitars for synthesizers, crafting a fresh minimalist sound. Listen to Cesare's remix of Thief's title track off his 'Closer' EP, easily one of my favorite EPs of all time.
TOKiMONSTA's remix of Elizabeth Rose's "Sensibility" gives the song a lo-fi bass flavor that still showcases Elizabeth's gorgeous vocals.
Delorean's remix of Shura's 'Touch' (her first remix), which has just gone up. Shura, who heralds from London via Moscow, has drawn early comparisons with people like Blood Orange or early Madonna. Shu's currently recording new music with an eye to a first single in the Spring, so new stuff is on the way.
Bonus. Chicago's Regulators' remix of Vindata feat. Kenzie May’s “All I Really Need” is a month old, but I don't care. It still manages to keep things sweet and soulful with ebbing bass underneath layers of vocals and pads to thicken it up.
