[Dance & Deep House]
Sweet Memories – CiD & Kaskade
Your sweet, memories
the one we danced to, all night long…
CiD & Kaskade’s insta-classic “Sweet Memories” has a very badass extended version (like many of CiD’s songs). Powerful wobbling basslines and funky groovy vocal samples make for a very floor-heavy dance tune. The song is very powerful even with it’s minimalistic take on “vocal house” and is sure to be a favorite among house lovers (also check out the duo’s other hot collab “Us” from Kaskade’s Automatic)
Freal Luv (feat. Tinashe & Chanyeol of EXE) – Far East Movement x Marshmello
Hustle to win, we be livin’ in sin,
makin’ us two of a kind
새로운 길, babe we got temples to build,
ain’t no haters can step to our grind
Hip-hop and electronic group Far East Movement has teamed up with rising-star Trap producer, Marshmello, in the hard-hitting trap banger “Freal Luv.” Bringing R&B songstress Tinashe into the mix and Korean Pop singer Chanyeol, livens the song up even more while heightening it’s diverse sound. On the surface it may begin like your typical trap with female vocals but Tinashe manages to bring some very moving energy to the chorus. Far East Movement has largely been off the mainstream radar for some time, and though this is not the first time they’ve “teamed up” with an EDM producer (All You feat. Waka Flocka heavily sampled Kaskade’s “All You) this cut feels much more authentic. In “All You” the beat was simply sampled from it’s original recording, while this was produced just for the song.
The result is Marshmello‘s signature slamming and slapping snares, heavy bass rolls and triumphant bells keeping the mood light, but intense.
For those in the Atlanta area, marshmello will be performing at The Gold Room in Buckhead, Atlanta on November 23rd. Pre-sale tickets are already sold out.
DJ Irresistible Jersey House Remix:
LUCA LUSH Remix:
DJ Q Deep House Remix:
This Remix Feature is on one of my favorite singles from California-based R&B songstress and dancer, Tinashe. “2 On” featuring Schoolboy Q is considered by many to be her break-out single that put her into the mainstream. I highlighted the song when it was first released, Drake’s “remix”, and the [at the time] a few select listenable EDM remixes shortly after it’s release. Chiefly, Wax Motif’s floor-filling dance remix, and TOKiMONSTA’s classy, seductive remix, which some fans very expertly choreographed in the link below.
By far two of the best remixes of Tinashe’s top 40/radio debut are by Jersey house DJ and producer, DJ Irresistible (check out another nice Jersey House remix here from DJ Poppa Dubb). Of note also is the Future House and alternative remakes by LUCA LUSH and DJ Q respectively.

Tinashe has been everywhere the past year or so as a force to be reckoned with in the R&B/Hip-Hop scene. Her vocals have attracted the attention of several electronic DJs who have remixed her songs six ways to Sunday. I recently posted a remix of her song “Vulnerable” by dj “Jacuzzi.”
Now her single 2 On (feat. Schoolboy Q) is available on iTunes.
This very club-friendly single, a DJ Mustard beat/production (who hisself has also had an amazing year in productions), goes well with Tinashe’s dreamy, ear-catching vocals. Check it out and give her support y’all!
Another #trap #gold remix of one of my favorite vocalists, Tinashe’s “Vulnerable”.
