[Chilling Out] [Chill House:] Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out (Dave Winnel Remix) // [Dance-House:] Little Mix – Touch (Lorca x Jamie Remix)


[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 Remixes:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (feat. Sean Paul) | Pearse Dunn Remix & Calvin Buckley 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/Chill Bass] WHTKD – WHTNSE (LTGTR Remix)


[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.

[New DJ Mix] Summer 2017 Chill Club Mix – LUMiNUS


Be sure to check out my latest mix, a chill mix of potential club favorites, perfect for 2017’s summer vibes.

Starting off very chill with Phantom’s epic and haunting remix of ODESZA’s “Waited 4 U” the energy picks up as the song transitions to favorites by Tchami, Diplo, Zedd and more!
By far, this is one of the smoothest mixes I’ve done and needed the least post-editing. I am very proud to present this to you all on SoundCloud. Enjoy.

[Ambient House/IDM:] Zhu – Intoxicate


[Ambient House/Intelligent Dance Music]
Intoxicate – Zhu

What can I say about Zhu? Other than that his music is mind blowing, Zhu has been making waves in the electronic scene for quite some time now. In one of his latest releases “Intoxicate” he reaffirms his rising position among electronic producers.

“Intoxicate” is a wild, deep journey through spacey sounds, trippy bass lines and incredibly catchy computer vocals. You can’t help but move and sway to the beat as it builds up and breaks down, or for the final chorus and trap snare reprise near the ending. As the computer repeats, “Intoxicate…exhilarate…stimulate…accelerate…” you find your body and mind wanting to do the same.

Do yourself a favor and check “Intoxicate” out, as well as more from Zhu including a great remix by Enda of his song “Faded.”

[Video Games] [J-Electropop] Utada Hikaru – Simple & Clean (Ray of Hope Remix)

Simple & Clean (Ray of Hope Remix) – Utada Hikaru
Theme from Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Remake for Playstation 4.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Opening Movie:

Simple & Clean “Ray of Hope Mix”

When you walk away, you don’t hear me say
Please, oh baby – don’t go!
Simple and clean is the way that you’re making me feel,
tonight, it’s hard to let it go

We’re almost through our first month of 2017 so congrats to everyone for that! In other news, fans of role-playing games, Disney, Square Enix and Utada Hikaru are rejoicing around the world at the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Prologue for Playstation 4. Released January 24, 2017 (my birthday week!) the game has been a long time coming for many fans after several side spin-off games were released in the past few years and little updates for Kingdom Hearts 3 have surfaced.

Nevertheless the game will likely prove to be extremely popular and wildly successful like most of the offerings in the award-winning franchise that pits Square Enix characters (including popular heroes, and villains, from Final Fantasy) with Disney characters and often in Disney “worlds.”

Since the beginning of the series, Japanese-American singer, Utada Hikaru, has been seen as a sort of frontrunner for the series as the titular games in the series (KH1 & 2) both featured some breath-taking opening movies featuring music from Hikaru. For 2.8, the iconic “Simple & Clean” from the original Kingdom Hearts gets the remix treatment turning from a dance-techno pop song to a more electro-pop/dance offering.

The “Ray of Hope” remix is quite interesting, though short, and 2.8’s opening movie makes it feel all the more epic. You can check out the video and the song itself above. Here’s hoping to a remix of Kingdom Hearts 2‘s “Passion” showing up somewhere eventually as well.

[Dance/Club House:] CiD – Love is Blind & GTA & Wax Motif – Get It All // [Future Trap/Rap:] With You – Ghost (ft. Vince Staples)


[Dance/Club House]
CiD – Love is Blind

CiD is certainly an artist to be reckoned with. Having dropped numerous bangers on his own, and with fellow house giant “Kaskade,” I still have yet to find music from him that I don’t really like. “Love is Blind” is an awesome future bass-house track that pumps up the volume with slowed down vocal samples over futuristic and far out electro-synths. The result is a song with instruments you’d normally associate with a more chill, mellow house cut being used to create a floor-filling club banger. Check out other songs I’ve featured by CiD such as his collaboration with Kaskade in “Us” or one of his more recent house bangers “Sweet Memories


[Dance House]
GTA & Wax Motif – Get It All

EDM producer GTA does it again, with help from house producer Wax Motif in “Get It All.” While the song doesn’t really do anything sonically that is very novel or unique, it’s combinations of melodies is soothing to the ear and you can’t help but bop to it. Check out a rap collab by GTA and rapper Vince Staples in “Little Bit of This.”
