Having been one of the original bass music practitioners, it makes a lot of sense for Bassnectar AKA Lorin Ashton to team up with dance music legends Underworld on their classic track REZ”. Today, OM Records imprint Child’s Play released Bassnectar’s remix of the cut, first put out by the seminal EDM group 20 years ago. “REZ” has had a special place in Ashton’s heart for well over a decade as a memorable part of his early exposure to dance music. “By the time I first heard ʻREZʼ…it was already a classic. It was the third ‘rave’ I had ever been to," says Ashton, "That was the only song I remembered from the entire night. And for years to come, whenever I hear any version or remix or even a slight fragment of that shimmering resonant arpeggiator I get flashbacks.” The Bassnectar remix adds mounds of thunderous bass to the track while still retaining its delicate and distinctive arpeggiated melody. The single will be released on 180-gram vinyl with digital download, full color jacket sleeve and liner notes from Bassnectar.

In “The Colour That You Bring to Me,” Death on the Balcony layers space-y synths and vocoder vocals on top of a funky bassline for a truly cosmic disco experience. “Shade I Bring to You” is a masterfully minimal jam with a smooth, sinister bassline. Pressurized trills billow out, filling the track with a dark, shimmering ambience.

Nick Monaco (Soul Clap, dirtybird)’s delightful remix of “The Colour That You Bring to Me” adds a colorful acid-y vibe, straight out of 1993, complete with rollin’ Rolands and smooth-crooning vocals.

Dig way deeper underground and you’ll come across Edit Murphy (Om Records)’s dubbed out version of “Shade I Bring To You.” The long, luxurious bass creates a slow build while the percussive hooks urge you the dance floor.

The Swedish synth-pop duo Niki & the Dove takes “The First” off of Brooklyn quartet Body Language’s upcoming album and puts it through a dreamy remix machine: layers of soft pads create an icy mood in which whispery vocals are pitched and glitched. The crooning sample of “girl, you think you’re made of stone / but you’re made of glass” adds extra tenderness to this exquisite remix.

The magic behind this Body Language / Niki & the Dove collab goes way deeper than just a remix: the two synth-pop bands first crossed paths in Austin during SXSW, where they shared a bill. They all instantly clicked and insisted on keeping in touch. Later in the year, when Niki & The Dove came to New York for a show, Ian (the drummer from Body Language) joined the duo to play percussion in their live set. The bromance continued to grow thereafter, and appreciation for each others’ music naturally led to them to remix each other. Then? “Then everyone lived happily ever after,” says Grant of Body Language. And after hearing the fruit of their remix labors, one has no choice but to agree.

Body Language is giving this remix away for free as an exciting first-taste of what they’ve got in store for us this year. The original version of “The First” will be featured on Body Language’s second full-length album, Grammar, slated for release in Summer 2013 on Lavish Habits.

San Francisco-bred producer Blackbird Blackbird is best known for his deeply textured, dreamy sounds accompanied by electrifying melodies. Most closely classified with indie/folktronica genres, this prolific composer recently released a highly-acclaimed EP entitled Boracay Planet, but the young music-making-machine doesn’t stop there; he is also continuously releasing a string of top-notch remixes that are sure to get your weekend started right. Scroll down to enjoy!


This poppy Kate Bush cover shifts from a grungy beginning with a gloomy undertone to a soft uplifting melody. With airy vocals conveying a sense of delicacy and strong transitions these harmonies are sure to be pleasing to the ear.


From the beginning, you can’t help but move to this harmonious Rihanna remix. With a catchy melody and dreamy vocals it feels as though you are floating until it brings you back with the sharp trappy hook that never really loses its elegance. The softness tone makes it really easy to fall into adrift.


This mix has a spacious resonance layered with blanketed highs and dark synth lows. Taking the intense vocals of Bjork, chopped and stretched, was very powerful and complemented the essence of Bjorks dark tones very naturally.


From all of the Adele remixes out there this seems to be the most unique complex one I have heard yet. Filled with many boomy/boxy layers this is over all a crisp tune. You definitely won’t get bored listening to this.


This incredibly produced Ginuwine remix has a variety of layers that all compliment one another beautifully. What stands out the most is the incredible build-up accompanied by the high/low distorted vocals, until the beat eventually drops. Varying sounds from trap to electronic, this up beat mix will feed your ears in every way possible.
