Disclosure is one of my favorite artists to come out of the last couple of years, and they can do no wrong, and this track just proves that. While the original track was huge when it first came out, Disclosure adds a slight sooth dancefloor ready vibe to it, and it is fantastic! I would love to hear more remixes from these guys. I don’t know if they are in talks of a new album, since their first album is still churning out the tunes, but I have to say I’m ready for it!
The already hit song but Beyonce and Jay-z finally gets remix treatment, and who better, than Yeezus himself! I gotta admit, I do have a vendetta against Beyonce, but her most recent album was fantastic, and I haven’t been the biggest Kanye fan as of late, but his verse on this is actually great! Nothing else has changed in the song, just the fact that a Kanye verse has been added to the beginning, so not much of a remix, but anyway take a listen below!
JoJo is someone who has an immense amount of talent, but sadly her record label will not let her show it. Luckily it hasn’t stopped her from putting out tracks for all of us. From her amazing Agape mixtape, to remix tracks such as this. ‘Anything’ for those that remember, was a track on her album The Longest Road. Now, years later, with her vocals sounding better than ever, she is accompanied by a LA local artist Casey Veggies which is an unlikely pairing, but it fits so perfectly. You can also watch her perform this track live here!
I have always loved me some JoJo, and I will continue to support her because she deserves all of it.
Sub Focus caught my attention with their genius collaboration with Alpines, ‘Tidal Wave‘. This new single follows the dance vibe of their previous single, and features the ever so talented Alex Clare. This song has already hit charts in the UK, and although I doubt it will hit USA charts, at least you can still enjoy it!
The original Harlem Shake has blown up in the last 2 weeks, and of course one of the most talked about rappers has thrown out a remix for us. Azealia Banks, no doubt, fits perfectly over this beat because she first blew up with “212″, so this is naturally where she belongs. The lyrics are controversial just like her, and I absolutely love this song. As for her original material, her first single “Young Rapunzel” is supposed to be dropping sometime soon. Enjoy this for now, because I believe when she drops her first official single, she will begin her world domination.
‘Jump’ is definitely, if not the most, my most favorite cut off her Unapologetic album, and now it is finally gaining some attention getting remixed by Club Cheval. I don’t know much about Cheval, but I might have to look into more of their remixes because I have to say this is straight fire. The original was banging, but I think, I just might like this one just a bit more. If it’s possible, the song achieved a level of sexiness that I didn’t think was possible, and the added feature of one of my long time favorites Theophilus London fits so perfectly over the slowed down Ginuwine cover.
On a side note, that picture above is from Rihanna’s recent Terry Richardson photo shoot which I highly suggest you take a look at because it does Rihanna all the justice in the world!
Lana Del Rey’s amazing song, ‘Blue Jeans’ gets its first house infused remix. While I think the original was absolutely amazing, this actually isn’t bad at all. Azealia Banks is one of my favorites out right now, and you can tell that she just fits perfectly over a house beat, and this proves it. Nothing compares to the original, but this is a pretty good take on it!
yeah, you read that correctly.
Carefree Rihanna went and made not one, but TWO remixes with the one and only Chris Brown. I’m not even sure how to review this song….just listen for now I guess….I’ll save my thoughts for the Cake remix
One of the most unique artists of 2011, James Blake, is now on his remix game and he adds D’Angelo’s “Left & Right’ to his list. I’m going to give this a couple of more replays before I make a final decision, but the original was SO GOOD, that its hard to hear a remix, especially one as unique as James Blake. Although I did LOVE James Blake’s album, I think he needs to stick to making his own tracks. My opinion could change in a couple of hours though.
