Got a great mix for you today, enjoy!
1. Chance the Rapper – All Night (Kaytranada Remix)
I love Chance! And I love Kaytranada. He takes a party pleaser and puts a beat on it for the dancefloor. The original is already great so he doesn’t do too much, which I appreciate.
2. RL Grime, What So Not, Skrillex – Waiting
Some BIG names in bass got together and came up with this (edit: wow, totally forgot to finish this before I sent it off. Anyway, this song is really great. They’re having fun and you can totally tell, because the three of them are wacky enough to pull this crazy shit off with a unique slant. Love it.)
3. Boys Noize – Midnight (Boys Noize & Mr Oizo Handbraekes Remix)
There’s so many remixes of this song — and the original is great — but this one is so satisfying, like on a primal level or something.
4. Destructo – Techno (Dr. Fresch Remix)
I’m so into this.
5. m.O.N.R.O.E. – That Sounds
A laid back tech house mix in the old school West Coast style. Super fun bassline, this one is just begging for your footwork. Aka probably great for learning how to shuffle in your bedroom. Not that I’ve done that… That’s what afterparties are for!
6. Baba Stiltz – Keep It Lit
Oooh fun shit right here from Baba Stiltz, from Sweden. A classic house groove, with great production quality on a lo-fi sound. This will pop up in some mixes, in fact I think I have heard a mix with this… hard to tell because I know I’ve danced to that bassline many times.
7. DJ Raff – Completed
A really interesting piece of music from Chilean artist DJ Raff. The first third is a kind of playful experimentation with the equipment, then bursts into a really fun, stutter-y thumper of a second third. The last third takes it up another notch, doing some great break work. Love it.
8. Frank Ocean – Ivy (Air Zaire Remix)
I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean lately, old and new, so this is perfect timing. This remix really amplifies all of the melodic and sonic hooks that are in the original, and lets ol Frankie’s voice shine. Beautifully done.
9. Jolar Drim – Tema
Lovely. Out of the Netherlands, this kid only has 70 followers (71 now). I’m impressed, this is some beautiful, high-level production and a beautiful song to boot.
10. Pirupa – Sunday Morning (Skream Remix)
Deep & dark remix from Skream. Lit it simmer and it will delight you.
