Singapore singer Joie Tan and producer TEEMID have reinvented this truly timeless track by creating an EDM-esque musical style to accompany the original’s soulful and funky characteristics. The feminine vocals are perfection with a grooving bassline and deep house appeal. Covering one of the biggest hits in the last decade is no easy feat, but TEEMID AND Joie Tan have done “Crazy” justice.
Quite possibly one of my favorite bands, Radiohead, has always made quality music. From debut album Pablo Honey to their most recent release King of Limbs, they have broken the boundaries of typical alternative music through exploration of the unfamiliar. From grunge-influenced tracks and guitar dominant instrumentation, to an experimental rock style influenced by kraut-rock, jazz, and 20th century classical music. This band continues to evolve and create amazing material with lyrical depth.
“Everything In Its Right Place” is the first track off of Grammy Award-winning fourth studio album, Kid A, released in October 2000. The track was written by singer Thom Yorke and produced by Nigel Godrich, who produced all their albums aside from Pablo Honey. The song is mainly electronic, featuring an electronic piano, a drum machine and computer manipulations of Yorke‘s voice. Thom and Nigel have transitioned their talents into another musical creation, Atoms For Peace, with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Beck/R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker, and percussionist Mauro Refosco. German DJ/Producer Tensnake amps up the electronic feel with this house remix.
This remix will molest your eardrums and deserves a place on everyone’s playlists! French duo Mickael and David Couderc, aka KRONO, mixed reminiscent flavors of Alex Clare and Justice with distinct influence from Daft Punk. They improved the hot mess that was the original done by Chicago DJ/producer Aaron Smith and vocalist Luvli, and created a soulful, deep-house take on the track that will warm your soul in these cold winter months ahead of us. Now start dancin.
After a brief hiatus, RR is back in action! To kick off its return, here is a feel good, head bobbing hip-hop track from King Fantastic. The duo consists of producer Troublemaker and currently incarcerated rapper Killer Reese One from Venice, CA. They describe their sound as west coast synthesizer beach bum gangster music. Andrew Germer remixes the track by keeping the integrity of the vocals while giving it some extra bump, bounce, and boogie. Get your boogie on and enjoy the weekend with this free download.
One of the best tracks for Halloween festivities has to be “Heads Will Roll” remixed by A-Trak. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have always had some Halloween swagger with their edgy, post-punk, dance floor friendly jams along with Karen O‘s colorful and flamboyant wardrobe choices. A-Trak has always been on top of his game, from winning the DMC World DJ Championship at the age of 15, to being Kanye West‘s personal tour DJ, to founding his own record label Fool’s Gold Records, to being the other half of disco house production, Duck Sauce. A little warning, this remix is known to awaken the dead, so be ready to bust a move with them.
Remixing one of the most successful bands in the world is no easy feat; however, singer/songwriter/producer Collin McLoughlin stepped up to the challenge and put other Coldplay remixes to shame. McLoughlin‘s refreshing dub rendition of “Fix You” from Coldplay‘s 2005 album X&Y stays true to the original while featuring electronically driven builds, glitched vocals drops, and melodic bass. It’s nostalgia at its best. Simply ‘like’ McLoughlin‘s Facebook page and download the remix for free!
Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim are sisters from Los Angeles who know how to rock. Their sound resembles a mix of 90′s R&B mixed with 70′s Rock. In others words, if Destiny’s Child teamed up with Fleetwood Mac, their musical creation would sound similar to HAIM. Their debut album, Days Are Gone, released September 27th and has been a huge success. The girls have been touring and playing music festivals all around the world. This past weekend they performed Sunday at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco and absolutely killed it. “Falling” gets a funky electro disco remix from the UK duo, Psychemagik.
This five piece indie pop group from New York City is in the midst of a breakthrough with their retro yet modern characteristics and vocals reminiscent of Steve Nicks. Haerts‘ debut EP, Hemiplegia, released October 2nd, was co-produced by St. Lucia and features aspects of 80′s throwback pop. Indie/electro/pop L.A. trio, Wildcat! Wildcat!, successfully remixed the track with perfectly infused synths and bass, elevating it to be better than the original. Catch Wildcat! Wildcat! on tour with MS MR, October 16th and 17th at the Troubadour in West Hollywood.
Pitchfork describes LA based indie rock band Local Natives as, “Afropop-influenced guitars with hyperactive drumming and hooky three-part harmonies.” After seeing them twice in concert, it’s undeniable that their passion, talent, and harmonies leave their audiences captivated and wanting more. “Breakers” is the first single from their second album, Hummingbird, which was released back in January. Superhumanoids remixed this track with melodic dream-pop sequences that make you wish like you were running on a beach in slow motion…Baywatch style.
