We’ve featured New York City producer BAILE a few times, including his remix of Seoul’s “The Line”. As such, it’s interesting to hear his music get the remix treatment. His ethereal “Walls” is transported well above the stratosphere by fellow NYC producer Alex Seamens, better known by his moniker Cranks. Industrial and house vibes echo throughout the track to give it a stunning yet haunting sound.

MakeLove – “Dive In” (Pat Lok Remix)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/233585950″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”125″ iframe=”true” /]

Less than a month ago, newcomer MakeLove released his new track “Dive In”. In his words, the single “is a love song. In all of the music I write, there is a plead from one to another. Wanting or needing love and not being able to hide that affection. At the time of writing I was watching a lot of Charlie Chaplin films and listening to a lot of Paul McCartney when he decided to go disco for 20 minutes. Chaplin always played characters that do ridiculous acts to earn the love of others. Unashamed dancing and unashamed love.”

The song, though, was an upbeat, disco-pop song. It’s been given another layer of dance-ability by well-known and the always-busy Vancouver producer Pat Lok. This rendition has an old school, dance feel, one that might have you stepping side-to-side and clapping to the beat. Need a song for your gathering this weekend? Spin this track and watch a dance party break out.

Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart – “3attam Babey” (Lucrecia Dalt Remix)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/233307184″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”125″ iframe=”true” /]

This past spring, Montreal’s experimental indie-rock band Suuns collaborated with producer, DJ, and friend Jerusalem in My Heart to produce the deep, rich album Suuns + Jerusalem In My Heart. The album combined Middle Eastern textures with Suuns’ innovative catharsis. One of the best tracks on the album, “3attam Babey”, has been made more scathing and guttural by young Berlin-based producer Lucrecia Dalt. The remix could be considered daunting for some, but listen closely to this rendition and you will hear her brilliance at work.

On the one hand, Dalt has slowed the track down and made it more haunting and suspenseful, as if there is something primal lurking in the dark. On the other hand, there is something immensely spiritual about the remix, from the shallow chanting and the downtempo approach. It’s probably unlike any remix you’ve heard recently, but it is a splendid version.

A couple of months ago, Miami duo Swimm released their sophomore EP, Beverly Hells, which was the perfect album to end the summer with its mix of psychedelic pop and indie rock. One of the tracks from the album is the anthemic “Belly”. Newcomer Fake Guns, about whom there is very little information, has transformed the song into a dazzling track, infusing R&B rhythms along with electro-pop textures. If there was an award for “Coolest Remix”, this would be up there. So warm up these cool evenings with this awesome rendition.

Yates – “Virtue (Plastic Plates Remix)”

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/232940062″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”125″ iframe=”true” /]

Benjamin Jacob Yates could be called the accidental musician. He started playing music as a hobby, mostly fiddling around with the piano and guitar as well as dabbling with buttons and beats. Next thing you know, the Australian-born, Berlin-based singer-songwriter is releasing music under the monosyllabic Yates, and his popularity immediately began to soar. It’s easy to understand why with his varied sound and his velvet voice.

One of his early songs, “Virtue”, is given a new life by Felix Bloxsom, another Australian-born music who is now based out of Los Angeles and who is better known as Plastic Plates. Retaining Yates’ stunning vocals and the intimate melodies of the original track. Bloxsom adds a tribal rhythm and ambient textures to transform the track into one sultry affair. You might need to splash some water on yourself and cool off after playing this track.
