Tchami’s remix of Justin Martin’s “Stay” is the old Tchami many of us fell in love with back in 2013.
Stay (feat. Dalilah) [Tchami Remix] – Justin Martin
It’s hard not to dance to this banger of a tune from Justin Martin, remixed by Tchami. “Stay” with vocal assistance from Dalilah, just as the lyrics explain, knows what we need. This song is everything we need. This is the Tchami that I fell in love with in 2013 after hearing classics like “Go Deep”, “Promesses” and his remix of French Montana’s “Shot Caller”.
The blurred lines between future house, big room and ambient chill-out music bring back memories that I thought were locked away in my mind from almost a decade ago. I feel happy to have them return and can’t help but smile when I listen to this tune.
Bassboy’s “Thru Your Mind” hits all the right notes, jazzy, snazzy and an all-around good time.
Thru Your Mind – Bassboy [New UK Garage:]
Just the pick me up I needed for today. Bassboy delivers with the smooth as butter, snappy upbeat “Thru Your Mind”. A simple vocal hook is spliced and diced to a snazzy bassline and four on the floor beat. The result is calming and effervescent, coming off with a vibe of house chic.
Easily danceable, “Thru Your Mind” hits all the right notes and more. Be sure to check out Bassboy’s recent live set from Meister Drop-Ins and Save the Night below.
Dirtybird’s Scavazza drops the “Shake Your Hearts – EP” with two slick original tracks and a remix from Harry Romero.
Dirtybird has been busy lately. Doing numerous live sets throughout the week, recently Scavazza and Harry Romero played an enjoyable set to help give all of us stuck at home something to bop to. Scavazza opened with his recently released track “Shake Your Hearts” which couldn’t help but immediately catch my ear.
The peaceful repetitive piano/synth lulls you into a deep trance. The vocals chanting “shake your hearts…” possess a very Santigold feel as the track builds before the bass creeps in.
The music video seems to have been simultaneously released, and features a bit of political commentary. Scavazza is watching the news on TV, which is filled with anxiety-producing headlines, mainly coming out of the United States, and the Brazilian DJ has had enough, turning it off to go spend time outside, on the beach, in the company of real people.
Also included in the EP are the tracks “Hey” and Harry Romero’s remix of “Shake Your Hearts”
Malaa comes thru with the dirty g-house tune “OCB” combining grimey bass lines and gangsta rap samples.
[Bass/House:] OCB – MALAA
The god of bass himself, Malaa is back at it with another banger. The Confession label legend of dirty bass and g-house does what he does best on “OCB” creating a dirty little number meant to reinvigorate dance floors.
8ighty’s remix of “Turn Me On” by Oliver Heldens x Riton is a banger chock full of garage vibes and deep house energy.
[House/UK Garage:] Turn Me On (ft. Vula) [8ighty Remix] – Riton x Oliver Heldens
Here’s one I’ve kept in heavy rotation since it debuted. 8ighty’s slick remix of Riton & Oliver Heldens’ “Turn Me On” gives the original quite a futuristic and upbeat makeover. The result is nothing short of a banger, combining the melodic vocals and undertones with a high energy bass line with UK Garage motifs.
This remix is amazing. Fans of dance and house music should be sure to check it out!
