Miguel- Sure Thing (Trails and Ways Remix)

If you be the Marx, I’ll be your Engels, babe. If you be the plot, I can be your ruse, boom. Union baby I could be your dues. If I’m in prison baby you’re my tunnel loose. Cause you’re the suffragette, and I’m the new vote. – This is a small taste of the lyrical…

Snakehips- On & On (Snakehips Edit)

We’ve got a weird one here folks. With this track, Snakehips remixed their own song and produced two structurally different, but equally awesome pieces. The original is a sumptuous piece that feels like riding a velvet highway: complete with a couple of smooth moving synth lines and not to mention the smokey lead vocal. The beat is…

AlunaGeorge- Your Drums, Your Love (Friendly Fires Remix)

Beat Connection- Saola (ODESZA Remix)

I fucking love Beat Connection. In my last Finals week, I watched their KEXP live show from MusicFest over 10 times (it’s 30 minutes long). This band is the perfect blend of big band and electronic sounds. This track “Saola” incorporates a nice upper synth line that holds a lot of the rhythm, but oh by the…

Ghost Beach- Miracle (Le Youth Remix)

I’ve been looking for the chance to do something with Ghost Beach. I love this band. They, like Metronomy and Trails and Ways, have been open to remixing and collaboration on their work and Miracle is a song ripe for artistic interpretation. The original is a pump-up electropop dance track, complete with a poppy rhythm…
