Josef Salvat – Open Season (Gryffin Remix)


NYC-based dance trailblazer, Gryffin, releases his official remix of Josef Salvat’s “Open Season” via Columbia Records. After launching his Flight Log mix series this summer and crossing 4 and a half million Spotify streams of his Years & Years “Desire” remix, Gryffin is becoming not only an expert but a master at remixing music’s most established names. With only a short few months before the year comes to a close, the blossoming producer turns to Josef Salvat’s standout single, “Open Season,” to create what could be his most out-of-the-box remix to date.

Slicing and cutting Salvat’s savory croons into a sparkling vocal chop melody, Gryffin departs from his atypical house backbone to converge his dreamy guitar licks and ethereal synths with a refreshing future trap arrangement. As he continually blows his fans away with every successive release, Gryffin makes it clear with this remix that he will continue to push the boundaries of his artistic project.

Hardwell & Armin Van Buuren – Off The Hook


It’s not often that two of the world’s biggest electronic dance music DJs and producers join forces on a club track capable of wreaking havoc whenever it’s blasted from high-powered, high-fidelity soundsystems. This is one of those rare instances. Today, GRAMMY® nominated artist, Armin van Buuren, and two-time DJ Magazine “#1 DJ,” Hardwell, release their new clubland collaboration, “Off The Hook” (Armind/Revealed).

“Off The Hook” welcomes you in with a cheerful, percussive horn on the intro that builds to a tantalizing, teasing signature synthesizer lead that is recognizable to even the most casual of Hardwell fans. The two dance titans seductively slow the tempo before ramping back up to full-throttle, like sonic showers raining down from the heavens, as the whopping chorus crashes overhead. You can buy “Off The Hook” here.

EDX Releases His “Ibiza Sunrise” Remix Of Robin Schulz’ “Sugar”

After enormous success with his remix of Sam Feldt’s “Show Me Love,” which was named the fifth most “Shazam-ed” song during the Ibiza season, and his take on Spada’s “Catchfire (Sun Sun Sun)” also riding high in the Beatport chart, EDX is back with his new infectious remix of Robin Schulz’s “Sugar” featuring Francesco Yates, which is out now on iTunes, Beatport, and Spotify.

Sampling the 2003 Baby Bash single “Suga Suga,” Schulz’ “Sugar” is pure summer with a smooth groove, softly bouncing beat and silky vocals from Canadian singer/songwriter Francesco Yates. Enlisted for remix duty, EDX layers punchy percussion over an intensified beat and the result is an irresistible dance floor hit with all the charm and groove of the original.

3 Monkeyzz – Into My Dream


Tropical house and summer have always gone hand-in-hand. Since the genre exploded, we’ve begun to see more and more re-interpretations of the sun-soaked genre, including combinations like tropical house and deep house – which has led to the birth of another genre that is free from the shackles of summer, melodic house. While they used tropical house’s explosion to get on our radar, 3 Monkeyzz have taken the summer-ready genre and run with it, and are poised to be stars.

“Into My Dream” combines soulful, ethereal vocals from Louise Mambell with soft, tropical textures for a stunning result. A bubbly bass line drives the track through infectious hi-hats and a catchy melody that will have you singing along before you know it. Check it out below.

Fight Night – Follow Through

FN - Follow Through

I seriously loved “Call Me Back” by Fight Night, but their second single to date “Follow Through” makes an even stronger impression that I think will resonate greatly in both the rock and electronic realms. Andy Gruhin’s piercing emo / rock influenced vocals coincide perfectly with Josh Grant’s electronic infused, trappy production style, all in all creating another awesome record by the DMV natives. There is also some production help from OWSLA affiliate Alex Young on this one, which is rad. Getting more and more excited for their Underground EP, which should be out by the end of the year.
