Marrzaan’s remix of Utada Hikaru’s “Sanctuary” took me by surprise. They’ve also got numerous remixes from Nier Replicant, Final Fantasy and more.
Stop by video game music remixer, Marrzaan’s Youtube Channel for a visit. They’ve got some great remixes and covers of songs from games like Kingdom Hearts, Nier Replicant, Monster Hunter Rise, the Final Fantasy series and more.
I had my reservations seeing a remix of the already a masterpiece “Sanctuary” from Kingdom Hearts II, but this remix more than does justice. Seeing some of my favorite games, particularly RPGs, means I’m certainly going to be diving deeper through their uploads later!
Bass house trio BROHUG remixes Kanye West & Lil Pump’s “I Love It”
[Bass House/Rap:] I Love It (BROHUG Remix) – Kanye West & Lil’ Pump
Bass house gurus BROHUG have done it again with a massive remix of Kanye West and Lil’ Pump’s “I Love It.” The popular trio perfectly meld the sounds of Rap and G-House with their signature bass house sound. Loud, noisy, full of energy and made for going crazy to, by the first drop the track is a floor filler.
A slick interlude with funky basslines after the drop smoothly mixes with Lil’ Pump’s bars and more relaxed raps as compared to Kanye and the overall energy of the song. Right after, it’s back to another heavy drop this time accentuated by horns and industrial sounds. This remix certainly improves upon the original.
Australian based DJ, Jyye, delivers an uplifting remix of Rachel Costanzo’s “Comfortable.” Channeling future house vibes, bass lines and great vocals is a deep floor-filler with a depth of sound that is nicely realized, as much of the music featured on Selected.’s YouTube channel is.
This song certainly “keeps it comfortable” settling with a comfy sound and BPM perfect for house lounges and late night set sessions.
Off the Alchemy Volume III EP, Rootkit’s “Take a Shot” blends heavy industrial sound with Future House.
[Dark House/Future House:] Take a Shot – Rootkit
Fresh from the Confession label’s Alchemy Vol. 3 is a new song from Future House producer Rootkit. Track six on the album, “Take a Shot” combines heavy bass, and a dark atmospheric sound to create a future house track that exudes a full bodied, yet minimalist sound.
As the sampled voice in the background repeatedly commands “Take a Shot,” sounds of echoing synths and tribal sounding wails combine to creating a very industrial feel.
Being the musichead that I am, whenever I hear a song that sounds epic, I have to hunt it down. Youtube, knowing that I attend festivals, placed an ad for Breakaway Music Festival before a video I watched, and although I am too broke to go to another fest so quickly, I was transfixed by the song playing and the visuals of what looks like a pretty enjoyable festival not too far from me. Maybe if a miracle happens I’ll find myself there, who knows.
Anyway, enough rambling, Bro Justin’s remix of Khalid and Normani’s “Love Lies” has an uplifting vibe and sound, perfect for festivals, and for the summer season that has sadly drawn to a close. That doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy it and rock out whenever the feeling hits you though!
Bro Justin is a Filipino electronic music artist who has several remixes that you can check out on his Soundcloud.
Cazztek delivers a bass thumping, yet ethereal big room “feel” take on Tchami’s “World to Me”
Tchami – World to Me (feat. Luke James) [Cazztek Remix]
Tchami’s “World to Me (feat. Luke James)” was one of the songs hot enough off his album to warrant its own EP. I’ve covered the Rootkit Remix & the Dillon Nathaniel Remix but there’s another flip just as epic that deserves not to be overlooked.
Cazztek’s remix of the song takes it in an interesting direction. A fusion of bass house, dance house and Future House this remix blends all these elements for an uplifting, atmospheric remix with plenty of energy.
A catchy beat and vocal sample play over the opening hook, “Baby, you should know/that you mean the world to me” with trance synths into a bass filled future house drop. The drop alone, heavy enough to fill dancefloors, refreshingly devolves back into broken down layers at the second chorus/full hook.
Ending out with warped bass and synths and then the return of the distorted vocal sample results in a song so upbeat, so funky, so different it’ll turn just about any person’s head.
Check it out above as well as more remixes from Tchami’s “Confession” label YouTube page.
Bass House and EDM Producer Jauz went off on his remix of Skepta’s “Man.” With plenty of bass, UK Grime lyrics and flow, it’s a solid remix. This is probably one of the first few Skepta songs I have heard (and immediately liked). I have nothing against UK Grime or the UK scene, I’m just not heavy in it. After hearing this song however I might have to join the crew or the gang. *Salute
