Sundays are usually pretty skim in terms of new music being released, but to help with the post-weekend depression, Gryffin and Hotel Garuda have teamed up and brought us a fresh new remix of Banks’ “Beggin For Thread.” The indie-pop original creates a darker, melancholy mood that develops a lot of emotion throughout, but when these three take it for a spin, they bring a whole different vibe. Keeping BANKS’ vocals in full form, Hotel Garuda implements their distinguished bouncing bassline that bumps HARD while Gryffin shreds on the guitar establishing a playful atmosphere. The deal breaker with this track, though, are the vocal chops of the pop singer’s voice that showcases how talented this collaboration is. Hotel Garuda and Gryffin have been on the rise all summer and are definitely two acts to watch come into the spotlight.

Just when you have accepted the season of fall, one of our tropical Norwegian friends comes in with a killer remix that reinstates the light of summer fresh in our memories. Today, Bearson relinquishes a sun-touched remix of James Bay’s sensitive original “Let It Go.” The 19-year old takes the sultry voice of Bay and combines the indie nature of his original with a tropical ensemble of graceful synths and soothing guitars. With Kygo recently taking tropical house to the Main Stage at TomorrowWorld, Bearson’s clearly on the track to follow in his shoes with his consistent production of elegant electronic music infused with cheerful, acoustic instruments.
As we impatiently await Calvin Harris’ fourth studio album, Motion, we can’t help but think about what new sounds he will be unleashing. His first single “Blame” featuring John Newman brought a blend of electropop and captivating progressive melodies in signature Calvin Harris fashion. But now, the Scottish producer surprises everyone with the release of the music video for his next single “Slow Acid.” Everything about this video is unexpected. From the trippy visuals to the stabbing psychedelic synths, this is a different Calvin Harris than anyone expected and in a refreshing manner. This release only hypes up what’s to come on Motion with the array of collaborations Harris has orchestrated for his album.
#SummerBass ambassadors, The Rooftop Boys, have been racking up hundreds of thousands of plays on their previous remixes of David Guetta & Showtek’s “Bad,” and Kanye West’s “Bound 2.” Now they step up with yet another masterful remix, taking on Nico & Vinz’ smash, “Am I Wrong.” The Rooftop Boys have crafted a feel-good future house jam around that recognizable “Am I Wrong” vocal, and it couldn’t be more perfect. Enjoy above and keep tabs on The Rooftop Boys!
AOBeats joins fellow Moving Castle member, Dave Luxe, in Trapdoor Volume 2 with a slew of up-and-coming artists. On “Feelsie,” his contribution to the quality package, AOBeats melds a deep, gritty bassline with precise vocal edits and synth work for an impressive future bass groover.
Honestly, I still have Galantis‘ “Runaway” on repeat since they dropped it two weeks ago. The Swedish producers are one of hottest acts right now in the music industry and they continually surprise everyone with their immaculate production. I thought that anyone who tried to remix it would not be able to produce a track of equal caliber, but LA-based JayKode proved me wrong. While keeping the original chord progression during the build, JayKode drops a future bass arrangement that is just loaded with the feels and takes Galantis’ original for a spin. Another free download for the people so head over to JayKode’s SoundCloud.
When Diplo and Skrillex unleashed there first track under Jack Ü, it was received with mixed reivews as the two influential producers decided to push the boundaries with their new project. After dropping an epic Main Stage set at Nocturnal Wonderland and their debut appearance at TomorrowWorld, Slander has been making a name for themselves as one of the breakout acts of 2014. Coming in hot with a new remix of Jack Ü’s “Take Ü There,” the LA-based duo diverts from their signature heaven-trap to bring an electro house, trap hybrid banger. Slander previewed the track with a video of them dropping the remix at TomorrowWorld, and the crowd’s reaction is a clear testament of how hard this track goes. The boys were generous enough to make this one a free download so head over to their SoundCloud and grab it.
