New Special Features Remix of The Aston Shuffle’s “Can’t Stop Now”

The UK’s rising star, Special Features, releases the full preview of his outstanding remix of The Aston Shuffle‘s unforgettable song “Can’t Stop Now.” The remix will be released on September 16th via Casablanca Records. With his Big Beat Records debut, “Illusions,” and an official remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Only You” already up his sleeve this year, he continues his world-class output for yet another exceptional offering. Special Features’ remix of The Aston Shuffle’s “Can’t Stop Now” sheds new light on his unmistakable brand of melody-driven progressive house that invigorates the mind and soul.

Special Features works his magic to create a stunning rendition of The Aston Shuffle’s “Can’t Stop Now” that is sure to be played out by top DJs around the world. The remix opens up with slow-burning arpeggios on keys and string plucks that harmonize to form a stunning sonic atmosphere under the The Aston Shuffle’s familiar vocals. The sequence soon builds into a strong crescendo with drums, synths, and vocals looped to perfection. In the midst of the madness, the lead melody line is subtly introduced before completely breaking through at the drop where the full song is unleashed with peak-time energy. Special Features never ceases to impress with each and every release – this is no exception.

Pictureplane – Goth Star (Health Cover)

With Pictureplane’s “Goth Star” being basically one of the best summer tunes ever, we were jazzed to rediscover Health’s cover of it. Though the cover takes away some of the sparkle from the mastered original, the earnest vocals give an edge that we find ourselves liking. And of course once that stuttered feminine voice comes chirping on nothing else really matters anyway.

Mix Chopin – Ice [Free Download]

It’s Throwback Thursday at Chubby Beavers…sort of. Though Mix Chopin’s “Ice” just came out on his MC² EP, the sound harkens back to Thursdays of old with a discotheque vibe. With enough snaps and claps to satisfy any platform enthusiast but a clean mastering for nu audiophiles, the track serves as a sort of vintage reproduction. If you dig, groove your way over to Facebook and grab your free download.

Lorde – Love Club (L D R U Remix) [Free Download]

Unlovely artwork aside, we may be in love with the “Love Club.” Aussie L D R U took Lorde’s vocals to task on his remix of the track, balancing the high-pitched harmonies with an easy beat and tinkling tones. The track’s innocence may stem from its vocalists’ tender age of 16, but for a summer day and nostalgia trip we’re digging the purity. Released as a free download from Future Classic, you can grab your copy here.

Crystal Fighters – You & I (Gigamesh Remix) [Free Download]

Though today’s electronic music has declared itself electronic dance music, there’s something about ’80s synths that do the trick better than formulaic builds. This Gigamesh remix of Crystal Fighters is the best of both worlds, layering 2013 vocals over a retro groove that won’t quit. If you’re not dancing by the tempo change we hope you’re restraining yourself because you’re at work. For those of you unable to resist,  you can grab your free copy here.
