Callie Reiff Releases Remix of Sofi Tukker’s “Déjà Vu Affair”

Sofi Tukker

16-year-old producer/DJ Callie Reiff releases her remix of Sofi Tukker’s “Déjà Vu Affair,” due out Monday, October 17th for free download. The NYC-bred bass prodigy has been staying on the grind after the release of her recent EP on Fool’s Gold Records, which included two infectious works – a bass-crazed single, “Shadow Dancing,” and her collaboration with KANDY on “Jawbreaker.” Her magnetic sound continues to seize the attention of the masses, earning her the highest number of views on Complex’s Facebook live stream and leading her to perform shoulder to shoulder with Skrillex during NYFW. With every release, Callie seems to have no hesitancy in setting her own bar so highly and slaying conventional genre boundaries.

In her remix of Sofi Tukker’s “Déjà Vu Affair,” Callie Reiff transforms the original’s lethargic character by injecting a canorous, hallucinatory effect. Hollow, resonating beats lead into a foundation of hypnotic percussion and a driving 4/4 beat before falling into a boundless union of beautifully chopped vocals and modulated synths.

Earlier this year, Callie put out a few outstanding releases, including her single, “Tin Machine” with Ronaissance, via NEST. On top of her own productions, she has also continued to bolster her profile further with notable DJ gigs like a self-hosted Dancing Astronaut x Fool’s Gold live stream that featured surprise sets from Brillz and Ghastly, a back-to-back with Mija at Output two months ago, and a support slot at Big Gigantic’s show at Terminal 5 this past spring, amongst others.

My music slump is gone (woo hoo!) thanks to TastyTreat and Kid Lizard’s track “U And Me” (ft. Madi & Malcolm Anthony.) Check it out!

Element – Dimensions

Originally growing up in San Francisco, currently living in New York City Chris Cruz is an extremely talented and slept on music producer who goes by the name of Element. While we’ve covered some prior material by the upcoming artist, his latest drop “Dimensions,” in my honest opinion, is his best work to date. The overall demeanor of Cruz’ new record is spooky and intense, like something that would be played as an evil genius was up to no good.

Felix Jaehn Releases Live Video For Chris Lake’s Galvanizing “Bonfire” Remix

German producer/DJ Felix Jaehn releases the official live video for Chris Lake’s galvanizing remix of his latest single, “Bonfire” featuring ALMA. This new reimagining comes soon after the release of the original single, which was crucial in demonstrating how Felix never compromises in his music, while also displaying his desire to break the mold with a grungier production style. It’s undeniable that he has been successful in getting his message across as “Bonfire” has amassed over 42 million streams on Spotify alone.

For his remix of “Bonfire,” Los Angeles-based Chris Lake showcases his technical prowess with a rendition featuring electro-tinged energy built into a sturdy four-on-the-floor foundation. The atmospheric horns and lofty chord progressions make ample space for dramatically pitched vocal tones and vibrant percussion, transforming Felix’s single into a dawn-breaking anthem.

The live video for the remix features a visual reel of Felix Jaehn’s incredible summer tour. Viewers are taken on a journey through clips of the young producer’s momentous show highlights, while also giving the spotlight to the people – fans, collaborators, and fellow artists – who have all helped define his artistic voyage in the past months.

Buy Chris Lake’s remix on iTunes, or stream it on Spotify.

Felix Jaehn has come a long way since his celebrated remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” soared to the top of the charts in over 50 countries last summer. Since then, he has continued to produce music that has him stepping out side of his musical comfort zone; his most recent tracks include a powerful, pop-leaning collaboration with Steve Aoki and Adam Lambert, “Can’t Go Home,” and a future bass-esque number, “Cut the Cord” with Hitimpulse. With this on top of a packed international touring schedule for the summer, including recent performances at Electric Zoo and Nocturnal Wonderland, it’s no surprise that Felix Jaehn has quickly become a fan favorite around the world as he continues on his swift rise.
