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!
The current state of EDM music never ceases to amaze as it has branched and developed into so many unique styles in these past few years. Full of hometown pride I am happy to feature Ba-kuura’s future Atlanta dance/quasi-IDM remix of iLoveMakonnen’s “Tonight“. The added drums and bass compliment well Makonnen’s warbly crooning, nothing new from the Atlanta rapper whose “singing” strikes somewhere between corny and genius.
Next up, what starts out as your typical chill, yet up-tempo House groove dissolves the familiar rhythm structure and switches up the beat with funky UK Grime-style basslines. Sigala’s “Sweet Lovin’” is right up there with most of today’s Future House but somehow, just does it a little bit better. Needless to say, the song is pure crack, and not to be missed by those who appreciate good music.
Hit electronic act Major Lazer, the collabo team of Diplo and British DJ, Switch has released a new track featuring rising superstar DJ, DJ Snake (of “Turn Down for What” and “You Know You Like It [Remix]” fame). We’re left with a nice chill electronic tune with a few trappy snares and rhythms. Check it out above and check out another, lesser-known bass/grime remix by Switch and Sinden below, and below that the same remix featuring rapper KiD CuDi.
