SLANDER Flips Above & Beyond’s “Always”

Riddim” and “heaven” may not be synonymous, but they go together like never before on SLANDER‘s new remix of Above & Beyond‘s “Always.”

SLANDER amps up the original’s delicate, downtempo instrumentals with a percussive buildup and a melodic, dubby bassline – and the result is both dreamy and dance-worthy. The “Always” remix preserves the beauty of Above & Beyond‘s classic track featuring vocals by Zoë Johnston while giving it a fresh spin that is reminiscent of the vocal, ethereal dubstep of the earlier 2000’s.

This is the second track in which SLANDER has deviated to a melodic sound, following their recent release “Slow Motion” with Bret James. “Always” is SLANDER‘s premiere release on Anjunabeats, and we hope it won’t be their last.

SLANDER first made waves in the scene when they debuted their remix of Showtek‘s “We Like to Party” in 2014, coining their unique sound. However, SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than remixes and a singular genre.

The duo made waves with their original productions and an evolved sound, as recently evidenced on “Welcome To The Fire” with Sullivan King, “I Can’t Escape” with SAYMYNAME featuring Feli Ferraro and “Happy Now.” Their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies distinguishes them as talented, multifaceted producers, not to mention their charismatic stage presence.

Together with NGHTMRESLANDER has made their “Gud Vibrations” event concept into a bonafide lifestyle. In 2018 they sold out their Miami Music Week’s Gud Vibrations Boat Party in less than 3 minutes, and continue to branch out and grow their brand.

NICKY ROMERO DELIVERS REMIX FOR AFROJACK AND JEWELZ & SPARKS’ LATEST SINGLE, ‘ONE MORE DAY’

Emerging just in time to turn this year’s flurry of next-level festivals into even more of a scene-defining escapade, Nicky Romero unleashes his remix treatment onto the new single of Afrojack and German duo Jewelz & Sparks. Premiered by the Wall Recordings head honcho himself (Afrojack) at EDC Las Vegas and played as the final track of his live set at The Flying Dutch last weekend, Nicky Romero’s remix adds a fresh scent of magic to their latest offering, ‘One More Day.’

Right in time to blow this summer’s festivals off their hinges, Nicky Romero provides dance music lovers with a wonderful and above all blistering rendition. Turning ‘One More Day’ into a super-addictive Progressive House masterpiece, the Dutchman proves again why he’s widely considered one of dance music’s top acts.

The main man behind Protocol Recordings and a mainstay in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll, Nicky Romero is one of the artists who’ve put dance music on the map across the world. Judging by the massive success of singles such as ‘Sober’ (over 32 million streams on Spotify), ‘Iron’, ‘Legacy’ (both than 20 million streams on Spotify) and – of course – ‘I Could Be The One’ (with Avicii – close to 200 million streams on Spotify), the young Dutchman has mastered the art of creating globally acclaimed super hits. His remix of Afrojack and Jewelz & Sparks’ ‘One More Day’ fits the bill for the full 100% in that regard.

BARDZ Wants To “Risk It All” ft. Ruuth (Remix)

California-native, Tyler Bardzilowski, also known as BARDZ, grew up surrounded by music from a young age and thought himself to play the piano and guitar, both of which can be heard in his tracks.

He has established himself as an artist unbound to genre in the electronic arena and his remix of “Risk It All” proves just that. The remix shows off his production skills, perfectly blending together guitar riffs, percussions and synths while flawlessly highlighting Ruuth’s delicate and emotive vocals, creating a one-of-a-kind sound.

Kris Wu releases two official remixes of his #1 single, “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott. Norway’s Lido and Chicago’s YehMe2 each offer their own unique rework of the groundbreaking cross-cultural collaboration. Lido uses melodic piano with his signature orchestral flourishes as build up to a percussive club drop while YehMe2 propels his house influenced mix with a four-to-the-floor feel. Released last month, the original track shot up the charts, historically making Kris Wu the first Chinese recording-artist to reach No. 1 on iTunes and racking up over 30M total streams. Listen to the remixes here and watch the music video for the original here.

With over 30M streams, “Deserve” was hand-picked by broadcasting giant Zane Lowe as his Beats 1 World Record and the track received a Collin Tilley directed music video which has over 14M views on YouTube. With recent profiles by i-D and CNN and recent appearances on Beats 1 with Ebro, Sneaker Shopping with Complex and Genius’ Verified, Kris Wu’s popularity in the US has reached an all time high.

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.
