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.

Electronic dance music was front and center at the Grammys this past weekend. The genre starred in a few categories at the 59th year of the awards ceremony. Steve Aoki’s I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, a documentary directed by Justin Krook that follows the life and times of Steve Aoki, was a contender for best music film. Skrillex & Rick Ross’s “Purple Lamborghini,” made for the feature film Suicide Squad, was nominated for Best song written for visual media. Tycho, Flume, Underworld, Louie Vega, and Jean-Michael Jarre were up for best electronic dance album. Flume won for his second studio album Skin. Flume’s “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai competed in the best dance recording category but the Chainsmokers “Don’t Let Me Down” took home that award. The Chainsmokers also competed for Best New Artist but Chance the Rapper came out on top. While they didn’t win that award, the fact The Chainsmokers had three nominations says a lot. Early on in the show, Daft Punk emerged in their characteristic helmets, followed by The Weeknd who launched into a medley of their two collaborations together: “Starboy’” and “I Feel It Coming.” The audience was treated to lasers and lit up columns. It was no EDC stage set up, but everyone looked entertained. You can view their performance below.
