[Rhythmic Future House:]
Zonderling’s remix of Moguai & Younotus’ “Lessons” is amazing. Featuring the vocals of Nico Santos, the Zonderling remix melds truly uplifting synth chords, and heavenly strings. Funky and mesmerizing. Everything a future house song should be. Check it out above!
[DIRTY Future/Deep House:]
Dua Lipa – New Rules (Shaun Dean Remix)
So I’ve heard a couple remixes now of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules.” Most of the ones I heard before are a more chill, melodic house vibe. This remix is not that at all. Shaun Dean’s remix brings filthy, grimey bass vibes too strong to hear and sit still. While still managing to keep the soft silky vibes the original vocals bring, Dean flips this track upside down with dirty wobbly synths and bass rolls. Truly epic, don’t sleep on this!
You don’t need to
emerge from nothing
You don’t need, to tear away
Fischerspooner is one of the DJs that laid the foundation for much of today’s house music. The American DJ trio formed in New York, has had their music featured in movies, video games, and numerous advertisements Fischerspooner’s most popular single, Emerge, was featured in the video game SSX 3 remixed by Junkie XL. With a pounding, head nodding beat the track is everything progressive house should be. Music that you can bob your head to as it gets progressively deeper and entrancing. Check it out above.
For the best revenge, I AM!!!
On the flip side, for something a little darker, but just as deep if not more, check out “The Best Revenge.” While it may seem like the song builds up for an eternity (a tenet of true progressive house music) it is well worth it. By the last drop, once the guitars are added back into the mix and the lead vocalist screams “I AM!!!” the beat will have hit you so hard, you won’t know what has happened. Great music to fade away, nod off or daydream to.
[Future House:] Tchami – Godspell (feat. Taiki Nulight)
I’m the one and only dominator
As soon as I saw Tchami and Taiki Nulight, I clicked as fast as my god-damn mouse could. I didn’t need to be told an epic track would ensue.
Hit Future House DJ, Tchami has been dropping several new songs, part of his Revelations – EP. He lays down an absolute club banger with fellow house legend Taiki Nulight with “Godspell.”
Filtered vocal samples, bass waves deep enough to break your coffee table and futuristic synths create a truly godly track. The introduction leading to the first drop and even the outro make excellent transitory songs for those who DJ.
Check out “Godspeed” above and more from both artists below.

[Chill House:] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Dave Winnel Remix)
Probably THE best remix of “Stressed Out” I’ve ever heard. I’m also a very big fan of the Andrew Lundeen remix, but Dave Winnel’s is far more remarkable. I could never hate on a remix of this song that repeats my favorite pre-chorus “My name’s Blurryface / And I, care what you think.” Be sure to check out both remixes if you’re a fan of the original!
[Chill House] [2016 Throwback:] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Andrew Lundeen Remix)
Popular UK pop band and the girls behind the second highest meme in views on my Youtube channel, Little Mix is one of the most popular pop groups in the world (as far as English music goes). Lorca & Jamie put the song “Touch” into heavenly dance-house status in their uplifting and epic remix. Pure house synths, nice effects and a pounding dancefloor-ready beat make this remix fresh, hot, you know, all that good shit.
Any song that can both make me feel nostalgic or that essence of pure pop music (the original, or think N*SYNC, Britney Spears in the 90s) and combine it with elements of today’s music is automatically a favorite in my book. Don’t miss this great remix!
[House:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (ft. Sean Paul) [Pearse Dunn Remix]
[House:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (ft. Sean Paul) [Calvin Buckley Remix]
Apparently it’s hot right now to remix Blu Cantrell’s “Breathe.” The 2003 single featured Sean Paul and enjoyed substantial airplay on hip-hop and R&B radio stations. Just in time for the wrapping of summer 2017 come two great house remixes of the original song.
Pearse Dunn’s remix channels slightly more aggressive dance-ready number, with a funky BPM and grimey basslines coupled with synths ready to heat up the clubs, this remix definitely has energy. Calvin Buckley’s take is slightly more chill, like a mid-to-late night cut rounding out the night. Think turning up the crowd then gradually letting them mellow back out. Steadily building, echoing synths and snares culminate to a short break before the rhythm and melodies are broken down then built back up.
Both remixes are certainly worth checking out.
[Deep House] WHTKD – WHTNSE (LTGTR Remix)
Probably one of the best takes on Disclosure’s “White Noise.” Opting for a re-make WHTKD’s atmospheric, deep House cut “WHTNSE” is truly remarkable. The already incredible tune is amped up to a level one may not have thought possible by LTGTR. Adding waves of futuristic synths and channeling WHTKD’s version into a more dance steady BPM, there is little to be desired of LTGTR’s remix. If you are a fan of house, deep house, chill house, chill wave/step, just chill shit, this one should become a regular in your playlists.
