The Beach — From Above (Boehm Remix)

Yesterday I was talking to DJ Swivel out in LA about the enormous amounts of music I have to sift through daily in order to find one that sparks some inspiration to write about. Sometimes it’s about finding the one that can go on repeat, or a bassline that bumps and that I can groove […]

Hot Chip — Need You Now (Moonlight Matters Remix)

Saturday: Wake up, eat breakfast, daily routine of morning reads. Jump in the bath and write, do some work. Lunch at Forrest Point in Bushwick with wifi. Wedding going on in the middle of the day inside Forrest Point, have to sit outside. Ordered a mezcal and cider combination, their famous quinoa salad and some […]

Little Giants — Lately (Monsieur Adi Remix)

Lately I’ve been thinking that I want you instantly Only know you for a minute, but it’s good enough for me” Sometimes we meet people and we connect with them so fast that we forget anything that happened before that encounter and we stop stressing about anything that we previously expected to come after those […]

John Newman — Come And Get It (Kideko Remix)

This next jam is brought to you by remixer Kideko courtesy of John Newman‘s single “Come And Get It“. It’s a nonstop, nearly five minute ride of  four-on-the-floor goodness mixed with catchy chants for adlibs, awesomely tucked-in and panned bongos, cool vocal chops and a fierce vocal performance by Mr. Newman himself. This dancy electro […]

Shura – Indecision (Jungle Remix)

I’m beginning to see indecision as a form of reckless passivity, another self-deprecating behavior that justifies itself via chronic remorse. In a world stimulated by action and reaction, where fear and love are the driving forces behind the choices we make, it becomes necessary to realize that indecision is a choice and duality is the human condition. […]

Slow Magic – Waited 4 U (ODESZA Remix)

ODESZA re-vamped Slow Magic’s original “Waited 4 U”, adding several layers of interesting sounds to the mix. The original is mellow, with the focus primarily on the minimality of the keyboard and pulsating sounds of the steady percussion. It’s very inconspicuous.. then comes along ODESZA, and the song itself yells, “Listen to me! I’m more than […]

Jessie Ware – Keep On Lying (TOKiMONSTA Remix)

I’d quite like to talk about dancing really quickly. Now, this isn’t a dance song, but I’m currently tapping my feet along to the good-ness that is TOKiMONSTA’s style. She (yes, SHE) first captured my attention with “Drive” (do your ears a favor and search our site for this post), so I was happy to […]

Rae Morris – Closer (Tom Misch Remix)

Tom Misch has been getting a lot of EMPT love lately. And it’s not surprising! His smooth tenor voice and the jazzy style of guitar are brought together wonderfully. He also has a lot to offer to other artists’ songs. Take Rae Morris’s “Closer”- Tom adds just a little- just enough- to change the entire mood, […]

James Bay – Let It Go (Bearson Remix)

Bearson took James Bay’s down-tempo “Let It Go”, sped it up and added multiple musical elements, transforming a pensive song into one of beauty.  The simplicity of the original captures James’s voice as the focal point, and sheds light on the melancholy subject at hand. This remix elevates the mood and mutates it into one that […]

Jill Scott — It’s Love (Invoker Remix)

From the Monday of Thanksgiving week until about February 1st, the music industry has a way of taking the deepest and heaviest vacation known to mankind. You see, by then, all fourth-quarter releases have either been released or set to be released, so the corporatocracy of the music world decides that it can pat itself on […]
