Little Daylight – “Overdose” (Future Islands remix)

We’ve been saying two things throughout 2014 so far – this is unquestionably the year of Future Islands, and it might just also be the year of Little Daylight. We’ll see if we’re right on part 2 when the latter’s debut drops on Capitol this summer, but for now you can check out the bands’ very fitting collaboration, Future Islands’ remix of Little Daylight’s simmering “Overdose.” We’re digging their take on the song – amping up the original’s woozy haze to eleven, the guys chill it out from a fist-pumping electro festival banger into something more suited for the inevitable dawn comedown. Check it out.

Listen: Blood Orange x a/jus/ted – “Uncle Ace”

a/jus/ted, a.k.a. Justin Strauss and Teddy Stewart (get it?), are producers and remixers who have been in the New York dance music game forever, but they’re making a huge wave this week with a remix for the very of-the-moment songwriter Dev Hynes, better known as Blood Orange – it’s their take on “Uncle Ace,” the heart-rendering ode to New York’s homeless LGBT kids from Hynes’ 2013 record Cupid Deluxe. The a/jus/ted remix stretches out over an exhilarating nine minutes into a serpentine late-night groove, with textured vocals and a moody vibe that perfectly fits the song’s oft-dark subject matter. Check it out.

mp3: Disclosure & Sam Smith, “Latch” (Lido remix)

We’ll admit that Disclosure and Sam Smith’s “Latch” has been remixed by every DJ in more than two continents, but if you’re open to indulging yourself one more, let it be this new remix from on-the-rise Norwegian producer/songwriter Lido.

It’s no longer surprising to see young producers hitching their star onto the overwhelmingly popular Lawrence brothers–recent PMA favorites Friend Within, Kidnap Kid and Gorgon City have all been hailed (but us, even) as “the next Disclosure.”

Remixing Disclosure well has become something of a rite of passage for incipient producers in 2014, and Lido absolutely nails it.

Lykke Li – “No Rest For The Wicked” (Klangkarussel Remix)

Love Lykke Li but have found her new material a bit dreary and sullen? Then you’ve got to check out Austrian duo Klangkarussel’s disco-y two-step remix of the normally sob-inducing “No Rest For The Wicked.” Now the song’s basically a Robyn song – you only need a lyrics sheet in front of you to cry.

Lykke Li’s I Never Learn is out May 6.

Evian Christ tapped by Kanye West for new album, remixes Young Thug

Evian Christ, who co-produced Bruce Jenner’s favorite Yeezus track “I’m In It,” has been reportedly invited back to the studio to work on Kanye West’s Born In The USA.”

“I’ve got to get home and write an Otis Redding–style beat for him,” Christ said in a recent interview. “[Kanye] e-mailed last night. He wants something that sounds a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep.” He also said, “Kanye is the one dude who’s like, ‘This is not experimental enough. This is too poppy. Make something else. The other guys are like, ‘We don’t get it.’”

Christ then confirmed what we were suspecting all along: “Kanye is a dream to work with. No one else gives you that level of creative freedom. When he wants you to work to a blueprint, the blueprint is: ‘Don’t make a rap beat. Anything but a rap beat.’”

While we wait for… Yeez-USA? Kan-USA? Christ has shared a new remix of Young Thug’s “Stoner,” and to our ears it sounds like a long lost Yeezus track. Listen below and download an mp3 here.

MØ – “Don’t Wanna Dance” (Goldroom Remix)

We’re sure that  and Goldroom are friends by now just because we’ve personally booked them both to play at two SXSW parties, so this makes perfect sense – Goldroom’s taken on probably our favorite  song “Don’t Wanna Dance” for a new remix that’ll probably make you want to dance even if the person you want to dance with isn’t around. It’s pretty much irresistible – we love MØ’s original, but Goldroom’s clubby, Balearic groove suits the song just as well. Check it out.

Perera Elsewhere – Light Bulb (Shlohmo Remix)

Last year Perera Elsewhere dropped her debut album on FoF Music, a compelling 13-track EP of ‘off-kilter pop’ laden with vocals and minimal production that both seem heavily influenced by a yin and yang of moody and dream-like states. Now the Deluxe edition of her venture has dropped, this one containing all the original tracks as well as a brand new selection of remixes from the likes of Shlohmo, Benjamin Damage, Kyoto, and more. Each track from the album got a revisit, and cleverly enough FoF have put Shlohmo’s remix of “Light Bulb” up for stream on Soundcloud. Considerably more urgent sounding than the original, Shlohmo’s remix takes the track to his signature dark place – this time with a grinding repetition and siren-sounding synths.
