AIMES’s “Burnin’” has been tearing up our setlists for the last few months. A definite disco house gems with more energy than an atom on speed, it’s always a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Now, Wonder Stories has gone and released the remix EP for more goodness. The Copycat remix in particular is a delectable rework, cooling it down to a slower disco groove with a sunset haze and muscular low end. The Ep comes with 4 others from the likes of Auxialiary The Masterfader, Tronik Youth and more:
Washington’s enigmatic dance maestro Wave Age has been on a hot streak for a few months with stellar remixes of Danzig and Khia. And now it looks like the titanic producer is tackling a titanic track in its own right: Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space.”
Whereas the original has a very stripped down, rhythmic, low BPM approach, Wave Age unleashes a series of synth stabs and G-house beat production as a means of remastering he track into a feel good anthem. The result is a snappy, indulgent piece of electronic pop that stands alone in a tsunami of T-Swift house remixes by taking the road less traveled; for example, the vocals here are handpicked to maximum effect focusing on the revelation of being a “nightmare” and complemented with dreamy, plucky strings. And while the track cycles overhead, the optimism introduced by the bright patterns early on carries the track to soulful territory thereby overcoming the age old proposition: how does one carry on a legendary track’s legacy while maintaining artistic credibility and the want to make it fresh in a new light?

LBCK just made our day with a super sleek, funked out remix of Galantis’s “Runaway.” Even in the midst of a million remixes of the track coming as a result of the remix contest, LBCK’s easily stands apart, bursting into color with fat electro chords, disco style bass and a big French feel. It’s energetic and playful and really helps bring out the best parts of the vocals. Listen below:
jackLNDN is in a league of his own. Not quite tropical house, not quite deep house, not quite indie dance–but all the best parts of each. He’s crafted a unique sound that feels as good as it sounds, and he’s back teasing the Summer Never Ends EP with a new track called “Don’t Forget.” Offsetting bright stabs with a low bass growl and an easy groove, this is one of LNDN’s best tracks yet. Listen below and keep an eye out for the ep coming soon.
