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 […]

BADBADNOTGOOD – Kaleidoscope (Kaytranada’s Flip)

Badbadnotgood just keeps getting better and better. Notorious for their boundary-pushing and genre-fucking ways, these guys are are absolutely killing it these days. Not your typical jazz conservatory grads, this Toronto-based trio (Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, and Alexander Sowinski on drums) initially garnered attention with their bad-ass jazz interpretative stylings of some […]

Rhye — Open (Max Joni & Daniele Di Martino Remix)

I guess we have no choice but to connect music with our immediate surroundings sometimes and, of course, the things that are happening in our lives at those very moments. I guess this is why some songs resonate more profoundly within our hearts than others. I’m also guessing that this is why some songs resonate […]

Crystal Fighters — Love Alight (Jean Tonique Remix)

I fell in love with words the moment I began to read. It was through the words that I read in books that I began to see how much power letters put together had. It was then that I knew I wanted to be a writer. At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say […]

Vance Joy – Riptide (FlicFlac Remix)

Most/many of the posts on here are about love and all are about music. But that is because they are so interchangeable, running parallel and perpendicular. Sometimes you are very much in to it, in love and sometimes you are bored, listless in it. At times you are completely monogamous and other times you are […]

James Blake – Life Round Here (Sh?m Bootleg Remix)

The sweepy synths on this track got me swooning. So luscious. So sinister. I am sold. To remix a James Blake track and actually do it well takes not only courage but skill; therefore I’ve got mad respect for Sh?m [Pronounced: Shem-Question-Mark]. Who is he? I don’t know. Maybe some kind of magician. I just can’t help but be completely captivated by […]

Le Youth – C O O L (Lane 8 Remix)

As long as you’re cool, right here is where you wanna be These are the only lyrics in Lane 8‘s take on Le Youth’s “C O O L”. This is the type of music I can really jam to. It’s simple and enjoyable. It brings me to a happy, calm place- a place in which I don’t have to […]
