One of my favorite types of remix treatments are when progressive house producers amp up indie tracks to give them a more aggressive but cheerful personality. Lost Kings, LA-based producer/DJ duo, are no strangers to internet as they have shared their progressive style with a slew of remixes from Disclosure’s hit “Latch” to Mr. Probz’s “Waves.” The duo come to us today with a stunning revamp of indie quintet Wild Cub’s single “Colour.” The Lost Kings add layers upon layers of glittering synths to fill your headphones with absolute bliss to complement Wild Cub’s charming vocals. These two are a force to be reckon with as they continue to tear up the internet with their sleek, refined remixes. Oh, it’s also doesn’t hurt they released it for free download.
Seductive songstress Zella Day‘s recent iTunes Single of the Week, “Hypnotic,” showcases her illustrious vocals and gives Zella her moment in the spotlight. Vancouver producer, Vanic, saw the gold in her voice and decided to give his melodic trap touch to the female vocalist’s single. Blending the elements of his remix around Zella’s croon, Vanic reveals his craftiness meshing melodic trap elements with background horns and a principal, dreamy synth harmony. Vanic’s ability to weld Zella’s vocals into his own instrumental to produce a song that seems like an original is impressive and should be the reason to watch out for future releases. Head over to his SoundCloud to grab the free download.

The promising Los Angeles-based musician, Christofi, makes his debut with the release of his collaborative future house remix of Mary J. Blige’s classic, “Real Love,” with producer Glenn Michaels. Fresh out of college this year, Christofi opted out of taking up a “regular” job to pursue his dreams in the studio and behind the decks. Now he’s ready for his introduction to the world as he showcases his stylish production expertise on this outstanding remix.
Christofi and Glenn Michaels have transformed “Real Love” into a groovy, club-ready smash that packs a punch. The pair took a four-on-the-floor rhythm, and accented it with piano chords, synth riffs, a strong bassline, and Mary J. Blige’s edited vocals to complete the catchy remix.
This is just the beginning for Christofi, so stay tuned for more music to come.

Dillon Francis‘ debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule has been blowing up recently topping the iTunes dance chart and breaking the top 10 on overall iTunes. Apparently though, it isn’t too early to start remixing as Grandtheft releases his official remix of Francis’ progressive single “When We Were Young” with Sultan & Ned Shepard and Chain Gang of 1974. The Canadian producer, known for his aggressive trap breakdowns, surprises us with a change of pace in this new remix. Maintaining Chain Gang of 1974′s soulful vocals and the original piano melody, Grandtheft lightens the trap percussion elements with a flute-based lead accompanied by a killer guitar rift. The release date for the remix is to be announced, but Grandtheft may be infusing the tropical house craze into his trap expertise. Maybe tropical trap is the next genre to branch off?
Canadian duo Botnek received the honor of creating the 2014 anthem for Seattle’s scariest festival “FreakNight.” Already releasing multiple singles on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, the imprint leader decided to give his own spin to the producer duo’s signature, growling sound.

Before the second drop though, he inserts a short scream-o build up that reflects some of the heavy metal releases on his premiere label. The remix definitely fits in the spirit of halloween so be sure to add it to your monster mash playlist.
