Release: Galantis – Runaway (U & I) (Kaskade Remix)

Galantis Kaskade

Similarly to Galantis’ previous tracks, we expected “Runaway” would begin to get remixed by the biggest of names, spanning tons of genres and styles. Kaskade is one of the first take on the new anthem and has finished with a huge progressive house tune. Preview it below!

Free Download: The Chainsmokers – Kanye (Evan Gartner Touch the Sky Remix)

artworks-000094777132-9ryv8j-t500x500With the release of the stems for “Kanye” by The Chainsmokers we’re sure to see a ton of awesome remixes (and a lot of bad mashups). Stumbled upon this Evan Gartner remix that utilizes the vocal and main synth for a tropical house remix that features the acapella of “Tough The Sky” by Kanye West.

Preview: Sam Smith – Like I Can (Jonas Rathsman Remix)

artworks-000095006955-d8o43z-t500x500How deep do you like it? Swedish producer Jonas Rathsman has laid down a decisively late night and deep remix of “Like I Can” by Sam Smith. The track is a stroke of genius with the way he’s interpreted the vocals and built a complex array of subtitles around it.  From a deep and driving bassline, to massive piano chords and incessant percussion. One of those tracks where you find yourself lost before it even begins.

Release Date: December 7th

Kaskade adds extra “oomph” to “U & I (Runaway)” by Galantis

Kaskade Summer Lovin @ AMSeems fitting that Kaskade gets remix duties on the latest Galantis single “U & I (Runaway)”. If you’ll remember, Kaskade was one of the first to put his touch on “Smile” before the whole EDM world exploded with Galantis buzz. Kaskade mentioned that the record was already perfect and that’s a daunting task to remix. So, instead of completely flipping the track he’s added a little big-room grit to give that “oomph”.

Release Date: TBA

Release: Higher Self ft. Lauren Mason – Ghosts (Original Mix)

10235950It’s hard to find any information about who Higher Self is. All we know, is his/her/their new track on Spinnin Records follows up on the quality that the sub-label has been pumping out. “Ghosts” is an infectious house record containing a mesmerizing vocal. The track seems like a hybrid between the sound Heldens has been championing alongside a tech house rhythm.  Give it a listen and let us know what you think.

Preview: Michael Calfan – Treasured Soul

calfanThe first thing I thought when I heard the new Michael Calfan was Adele, meets Duke Dumont, meets “Prelude.” Calfan is coming of the monster “Prelude” on Spinnin and returns with a follow up in a similar direction. We don’t really blame him for jacking a few styles because he definitely has accomplished something beautiful with “Treasured Soul”. Nothing like some big ol’ rave pianos.

Release Date: December 8th

Release: Lush & Simon, Uforik – Hydrogen (Original Mix)

10235944Breakout artists Lush & Simon have teamed up with 18 year old Uforik from Shanghai on their new Doorn beast. “Hydrogen” is exactly as advertised by Uforik’s name. The euphoric piece works off some massive saws into a progressive drop. Similar to Audien, the track evokes grandiose feelings and has seen support from names like Martin Garrix. A lot of the trancy, progressive house guys are really starting to take notice of the Asian market that is exploding. They tend to move in the direction that guys like Super8 & Tab and others alike are championing.
