The Chainsmokers are what you call “men of the people.” Even post-”#Selfie,” Alex and Drew continue to pump out a slew of originals and remixes released FOR FREE. Their most recent remix of Anna of the North’s “Sway” brings us a medley of sounds from the New York-based producers. Combining elements of deep house, progressive house, and chill trap, the Chainsmokers deliver a fresh, feel-good remix that will have you dancing in the street within the first minute. The duo humors us with their usual, lengthy track description, but this time they make sure that any haters know “we will produce whatever the hell we feel like producing.” Isn’t that what music is all about? Head over to their Soundcloud to grab your copy and be sure to follow them for more free downloads.
With his first single on Kosmo Records, “Moments” feat. Sam Smith, it would seem Freddy Verano has made his big breakthrough. He manages to expertly translate this melancholy pop hit with the unmistakable voice of Sam Smith into the electronic genre, without sacrificing any of the feeling: Big Emotions in the verses meet up here with dynamic pianos and a catchy hook in the chorus.
Freddy Verano calls his style “Sunshine House”, which pretty much sums it up, because in “Moments” you can feel the heat as soon as the first beats hit your ears…
LA-based producer SNBRN refuses to accept that fall has come upon us. To keep the summer spirit alive, the up and coming producer has gifted us with a new “sunset house” remix of The Game’s “Let’s Ride.” Just like his 50 Cent remix, SNBRN allows the rapper’s lyrics to shine through while injecting his signature, deep bassline to make this track a jam and a half. If you’re missing summer as much as I am, head over to SNBRN’s soundcloud and snag the free download to remember those late nights at the beach.
On the eve-weekend of his world debut live in Australia for Listen Out Festival, the rising yet still anonymous phenom ZHU releases an incredible cover of CHVRCHES’ “Gun”. Premiered via Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill, the elusive new maestro gives this to the world – highlighted by a specific thank you to Australia for embracing his music and faceless movement as a whole before anywhere else (Triple J added “Faded” before any other major broadcast networks).
Note: Free download available. For those of you seeing him down under over the next two weekends, enjoy!
Take a trip with us to France, as we are back with a new remix by Glastrophobie, and no stranger to being different, the man who goes by Glastro, for short, took on “Je Te Deteste,” the debut single for French folk-sensation Vianney, and gave it the shine that the original record deserved. Literally translating to “I hate you,” “Je Te Deteste” is a song about heart break, and heart ache, which Glastro is no stranger to. Just a few months before the release of his “Words” remix, his girlfriend at the time left him for another local DJ, breaking the man’s heart, without leaving him defeated. Sad and alone, he holed himself up in his studio, and started creating and perfecting his sound that we’re are all growing to love…
