Shortly after the release of “One Touch” by electronic artist and man behind the hit “Harlem Shake” song, Baauer, which evolved into a full-blown Internet meme, remixes of the song began popping up on blogs and music sites. One of the smoother and more IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) type remixes was done by the collaboration of EDM artists Chocolate Flip and Luca Lush.
Their remix adds a spacey sound to One Touch to create the backdrop of synths, bass combining harmoniously with Aluna Francis’ dreamy vocals.
I will make you a sunset view
Gonna make it so you gonna want to
Get your hands involved with me
And you’re never gonna feel empty
New rapper on the scene O.T. Genasis has a video for one of his breakout singles “Coco” which has recently been getting airtime on Atlanta hip-hop radio stations. Check out the video below where Genasis explains how he’s in love with the “coco” and guess what? He got it for the “low low.”
Electronic artist Gryffin collaborates with House/EDM DJ Hotel Garuda for this dance remix of EDM legend BANKS’ “Beggin’ For Thread.” Sultry female vocals accompany a “beach-like” sound with waves of blissful melodies. Edited vocals comprise the backbeat of the song and result in a very calming track.
One of the better remixes of a mainstream artist to come down the pipeline in the EDM world, Gryffin’s remix of Maroon 5’s “Animals” adds a progressive electro vibe to the original. With a slow, smooth tempo that gradually adds increasing layers of electronic sounds this track feels right at home among other house and dance hits.
