Smooth House Remix of Baauer’s “One Touch (feat. AlunaGeorge)” by Chocolate Flip & Luca Lush

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

Gryffin & Hotel Garuda collab remix of BANKS’ “Beggin’ For Thread”

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.

Check it out below and post what you think!

Dub Electro House Remix: Animals (Gryffin Remix) – Maroon 5

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.

[October Rap:] I Don’t F*ck With You (feat. E-40) [Prod. DJ Mustard & Kanye West] – Big Sean

Sorry I’m a little late on this post but a week or so ago Big Sean released a new single titled “I Don’t F*ck With You” which has been getting major play on Atlanta radio stations. With production from DJ Mustard with his signature EDM-like synths, hand claps and snaps, and a slick sample of DJ Roger’s “Say You Love Me” which word has it Kanye (and possibly DJ Dahi) added to polish off the track.

The ending segues into a fleshed out version of Kanye’s sample with soulful singing in the background and a turn to more positive and uplifting verses from Sean, as opposed to the straight-up dissing and trash-talking the main part of the song embellishes. Many say he wrote this out of spite of Naya Riviera, but we’ll never know…

Best Youtube comment: “I hope he give a f*ck about getting Ariana Grande home before her curfew”
Internet, please, STAHP!! Deaded.

Quotable verse: “I mean for real, f*ck how you feel. F*ck your two cents if it ain’t goin’ ‘twards the bill!

“One Touch” – Baauer feat. AlunaGeorge and Rae Sremmurd

Two of my favorite artists, Baauer and AlunaGeorge (whom I’ve blogged about before) collab together to bring us “One Touch” with additional support from up-and-comer Rae Sremmurd (of “No Flex Zone”, and “No Type” fame). Baauer’s smooth sultry beats meld perfectly with Aluna’s beautiful vocals, and Rae Sremmurd also seems at home on this track while making Dragon Ball Z references and the like…
