Alison Wonderland- U Don’t Know (Just A Gent Remix)

As we get deeper and deeper into Spring, I remixes like this one even more suitable mainly due to the fact that dank BANGERZ like this track are just better when it’s a sunny day and maybe you’ve had a few drinks. What we have here is an Australian connection as Alison Wonderland and Just…

ZHU- Paradise Awaits (FKJ Remix)

When I saw that FKJ (or as I prefer to call him, French Kiwi Juice), the R&B-electro fusion remixer out of Paris, remixed my favorite ZHU track, Paradise Awaits, I basically had a mini-freakout in front of my computer. FKJ’s remix, released on November 13th, masterfully finds a balance between ZHU’s deep house focus and…

Drake- How Bout Now (salute Remix)

British DJ, salute, delivers a well balanced and innovative remix of Drake’s “How Bout Now,” a track that has a ton of soul packed into a simplified beat and minimal melodic support. As with most rap/R&B tracks, Drake’s lyrics get most of the focus, but what makes the original compelling is that it actually has a…

Craig David- Fill Me In (KREAM remix)

Craig David, and even more specifically this track “Fill Me In,” were very important parts of my musical (and personal) development at the ripe age of 14-15 years old. That’s why Norwegian sibling duo, KREAM’s remix, released about a month ago, is just so damn exciting. I’m gonna be honest with you all this is…

Childish Gambino- 3005 Pt. I & II (Zanski Remix)

So to be honest I’ve been on a bit of a electro/hip-hop trip lately and I’m not upset about it. It seems like hip-hop since about 2005 has been made for electro remixes and Canadian DJ Zanski seems to have capitalized on that recent trend, especially when Gambino’s “3005 Pt. II” dropped earlier this month.…

Gramatik- Get A Grip feat. Gibbz (DAZE Remix)

Hot damn, both of these tracks are absolutely insane. Personally, I don’t think there is a single better feeling than hearing a remix before the original, and then being completely blown away, both by the quality of the original and also the talent of the remixer to redefine the track. I can genuinely say that…

Ryan Hemsworth and Wave Racer Remix Exchange

So this is without question the most unconventional post we’ve written on CasaSwoop so far, but who says we have to stick to a rigid system? I mean, really who says that our posts always have to follow the same format? Well, we say that, but then again rules are made to be broken, even…
