Tropix & Oxilo Heat Up Summer with Out of Love Remix

In February of this year, Two Friends and Cosmos & Creator released “Out of Love” on Spinnin’ Records. A saxophone serenade and a chorus of “Ohs” made it an instant hit and spawned numerous remixes. Cosmos & Creator hail from Toluca Lake, a neighborhood in Los Angeles, and Two Friends (duo Matt Halper + Eli Sones) also call Los Angeles home. The LA trifecta was completed when LA resident and producer Oxilo teamed up with East Coasters Dex and Dylan, who make up Tronix, to remix “Out of Love.” Today we take a look at one of the hottest remixes of the summer that will be sure to hype up your poolside parties and light up your dj sets.

 

Oxilo’s productions range from the more melodic, chill side of bass music to trap and dubstep. In this remix for “Out of Love,” his presence and influence can be felt. The remix employs claps, a funky breakdown, and the familiar sound of Mario breaking a brick to find a coin breathes new life into the original.

The remix was officially released on July 10, 2017, and in just six days it amassed over 10,000 plays. This comes on the heels of a logo makeover and sound makeover for Dex and Dylan. The producer pair had the following to say about their relaunch:

 
“We are excited to introduce the world to our melodic future sounds, and sharing the love of music with our fans in the diaspora. We are committed to creating good feelings to identify our greatest moments together.”  

Tropix’s music is traveling the world and the pair has plans to take people on the musical journey with them. Download the Tropix and Oxilo’s “Out of Love” remix at http://bit.ly/2tMFZkm and heart on Hype Machine at http://bit.ly/2eWsBrg. Check out Tropix’s and Oxilo’s socials below.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and David Guetta Team Up With “Complicated” ft. Kiiara

With a string of hit singles under their name, such as “Higher Place” and “Hey Baby,” Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have hit No. 1 spots in Billboard Magazine’s Dance Charts. They’ve also collaborated with the music industry’s hottest artists such as Ne-Yo, Diplo, Martin Garrix Steve Aoki and many more. Now, the duo got together with another big producer, David Guetta for a hot new track.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have signed a long-term deal with Epic Amsterdam, the international label of Sony Music Entertainment Netherlands, and will be releasing their newest single, “Complicated” featuring Kiiara along with David Guetta, on July 28. The Belgian brothers have crafted an irrefutable stylistic party anthem that is sure to be another chart climbing hit for all parts of this collaborative effort.

   

“We’re really excited to have signed with Sony Music. The label is one of the most iconic identities in the history of the music industry and has been a driving force behind so many musical figures across rock, pop, hip hop and more recently electronic music. It’s a proud moment for us to be joining the lineage of Sony Music artists,” said Dimitri Vegas.

   

Guetta and Kiiara both bring their indubitable style and feel to “Complicated,” and with Dimitri and Mike’s impact, the track segues between a festival-ready crowd-chanting anthem and a unavoidable drive time radio hit.

   

“Our focus has always been about reactivity as we strive to create exciting dance records that we and our fans love,” said Like Mike. “On one hand, we fill stadiums and reach fans in-person with live spectacles that we grow with new elements each time, but on the other hand we’re also creating a long-lasting irrefutable dance anthems that fill the radio charts across the globe.”

 

Rezz Releases “Diluted Brains” From Debut Album

Rezz has grown to be one of the most popular Bass/Trap DJs in the electronic music scene, and at just such a young age, she’s already accomplished a lot.

The 22-year-old DJ started producing in 2013 and quickly boomed into one of the hottest female producers in the EDM scene. Some of her biggest influences are deadmau5, who eventually signed her after discovering her online. She also finds inspiration from Gesaffelstein, Alesia, Amon Tobin, Eskmo, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights and many more.

 

After recently releasing her single, “Relax,” earlier this month with a tantalizing music video to match, Rezz, who is also known as Space Mom to her fans, is back with another single, “Diluted Brains.” The track is the second single from her upcoming debut album Mass Manipulation, which is slated to released on August 4 on mau5trap.

Constantly honing and perfecting of her enigmatic, bass driven, and minimal sound has attracted a cult of its own, and “Diluted Brains” doesn’t stray from this winning blueprint. As Rezz likes to describe her sound, it’s a “weird industrial bassy low paced and super rhythm based music.” Incorporating powerful kicks, syncopated percussion and rumbling synths to drive the track home, this latest offering is a testament to Rezz’s impressive commitment to quality and production value as she continues to test and push the boundaries of the electronic music scene.

 

With exclusive merchandise to pair with this particular release and colossal worldwide tour in the books, it’s looking like 2017 is quickly shaping up to be a big year for the Canadian prodigy.

Rezz recently announced a major world tour called “Mass Manipulation,” and will hitting cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Baltimore, New York, El Paso, Mumbai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Las Vegas, Seattle, and many more.

SoundCloud Lays Off Employees And Closes Offices

SoundCloud was one of the fastest growing music streaming platforms and most influential musicians released a lot of music on it. Now, it is shrinking, and faces a harsh future in the online music market. Closing offices in London and San Francisco, SoundCloud has reportedly laid off nearly half it’s workforce, letting go 40% of it’s staff. According to CEO Alexandra Ljung, this move will ensure its “long-term, independent success.” “By reducing our costs and continuing our revenue growth, we’re on a our path to profitability and in control of SoundCloud’s independent future,” said Ljung in a blog post.

There has been speculation spreading throughout the music industry that SoundCloud might be for sale at a value lower than the $1 billion it has sought in the past. SoundCloud has become a streaming giant with 175 million regular users, making it one of the most popular music sites in the world, but it also faced pressure from record labels to sign licensing deals and develop a paid subscription model to compete with Spotify and Apple Music.

Executives feel that the lay-offs is part of a strategic plan to “cost cutting, continued growth of [their] existing advertising and subscription revenue streams, and a relentless focus on our unique competitive advantage – artists and creators.” Ljung revealed that 173 staffers were let go with those remaining shifted into the Berlin and New York offices.  There have been serious and widely reported problems including losses verging on $100 million from 2014 to 2015, but SoundCloud executives claim they have a “strong outlook for 2017.”

“We are extremely grateful for the contributions of each and every staff member who will be leaving SoundCloud, and we wish all of them the best,” said Ljung. “Without them, we would not be where we are today. [SoundCloud will] continue to be the place for what’s new, now and next in music.”
