So I was scrolling through my SoundCloud stream when I stumbled across this song reposted by Sun Glitters. Sarah P, a singer/songwriter from Greece, recently teamed up with fellow Greek producer Nteibint to come out with “Moving On.” It has a very interesting indie/electro/80s feel, sort of like something that you would expect from Kavinsky. She is only getting started as she has plans to put more tunes out this year, which includes singing on an EP from Sun Glitters next month. You can also check out the music video for this song here!
Anyone who has spent copious amounts of time diving in and out of clubs has heard the dance classic Show Me Love by renowned vocalist Robin S. And if it wasn’t the original, it was some refix by EDM powerhouses like Steve Angello, Hardwell, or Afrojack. Now it appears that the house music standard is being utilized once more as the inspiration behind Sam Feldt‘s upcoming release through Spinnin’ Deep on February 16.
As one of the more prominent names in the up and coming subgenre of ‘tropical house,’ Sam Feldt has cemented his place within the scene by his eclectic sampling choices, often involving nature, to complement the island inspired rhythms typical of tropical house fare. This is on display here via the cheery chirps of songbirds that pan throughout allowing the track to emanate a bright, doe-eyed sensibility that suits the vocals to a tee. In fact, the vocals here will no doubt stir plenty of feelings during Feldt’s upcoming tour: they not only nail the lyrics of the original, but they deliver a fresh listening experience that stuns as the track culminates into a breeze of blissful synths and bells. It’s a sensational take on a classic and could be a major player in deep house sets in the coming months.
Listen to the preview edit of Sam Feldt’s Show Me Love after the jump and be sure to get it upon its release on Feb. 16. Feldt will also be performing a sold out show at U Street Music Hall with Thomas Jack and Tommy Cornelis on Valentine’s Day.

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?
Listen to the remix below and hit up Wave Age’s SoundCloud for a free download.
New York’s Sajeeb Saha – aka Jai Wolf – has been becoming a stronger signal on the indie dance transistor radio for a few months now with his unique take on traditional future bass and trap music styles. Glitchy, harmonic, and contagious, the DJ/Producer has been making electronic music since high school and with affiliations like OWLSA, Adventure Club, and Diplo, it looks like his presence is only gonna grow.
His newest remix, a sweet and snappy rendition of Dirty South’s “With You,” is a testament to his talents for thinking outside of the box and melding multiple sub-genres into a unique amalgamation of tastes. Building with elements reminiscent of complextro and piano driven house music, Sajeeb finds a groove in a cascading shower of synths and methodical bass notes which power the track into the stratosphere thereby taking us to the stars. It’s a track that pushes us into a journey and cajoles us into closing our eyes and just going with it. Dreamy and smooth, this is a go-to track for lifting the dancefloor to spiritual wellness.
Listen to the remix after the jump.
