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.

Fresh off the success of last year’s Social Studies LP, Body Language have returned with their trademark sound of future-shocked pop, blended with a dash of Soul and R&B. Or as the Brooklyn quartet puts it, “Our world still exists in an indie-disco bubble; we’re just pushing the limits of every genre to a point where the bubble’s about to pop.”

That’s certainly the case with “Lose My Head”—a floor-filler that’s driven by late ‘70s funk licks and diamond-encrusted keys. The Jimmy Edgar remix shakes down the original vocals and lays them cleanly on top of a spacy, no-nonsense acid bassline for a proper throw-back groove. Light Year’s remix takes us to the edge of minimalism, with choppedup vocals, chunky 808s, and space-age blips and beeps.

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.

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.

Camoflaug3 was a group that formed out of a cause rather than a musical mission. The two members who go simply by 001 and 002 are electronic music veterans and have been there from the days of when it was simply two (or three turntables), a mixer and a massive sound system hauled into some “not so legal” space.

Fake DJ is the result of this history colliding with a casual conversation about the state of the DJ nation. 001 put his hands to the keyboard and wrote the lyrics and conceptualized the track and 002 hit the studio to pull together the beats. The next ingredient was the vocalist, which had to be a Poet Laureate of sorts, someone who also understood the roots of the music and what was trying to be said. “Robert English was born for this vocal and he nailed it in just two takes, it was just perfect” says 002. The cherry on top was bringing in the legendary DJ Sneak to do the remix. His mix brings out something in the track that only he could, deep groovy bass lines and some essence of his classic You Canʼt Hide from your Bud.

As DJ culture accelerates into the mainstream it has virtually lost all of its history with this new generation of fans, left it behind as a new generation stands on the shoulders of giants, and become giants themselves pushing the architects and creators into the shadows. The musical mission statement is now very clear for Camoflaug3: respect your roots and know your art.

The most recent Om:Cast comes to you from none other than L.A.‘s Heidi Lawden! This Friday she will be rocking the decks at our third installment of the Smoke N’ Mirrors residency at Monarch alongside Edit Murphy, TK Disco and Shiny Objects. This “up-tempo mix of up-front music” in her own words:

“I realized recently that I first DJ’d around 19 years ago. I played in London with DJ’s such as Danny Rampling and The Horsemeat Disco boys as well as some U.S legends such as Pal Joey and Tony Humphries. After relocating to L.A I stepped away from DJing to focus on a music job by day. The lure of buying music and love of playing is not something that ever leaves you however, so I’m now thrilled to be building a loyal following Stateside and playing most weekends.

Excited would be an understatement when OM asked me for a mix, and in honor of the upcoming Smoke and Mirrors party I decided to do an uptempo mix of upfront music. I recorded it live in one take. SF crowds are super sophisticated and knowledgable , you better come prepared when you play there and with so many excellent local DJ’s I feel especially honored to be invited back. Next up I’m heading into the studio to make the kind of music that makes me dance all night long in the hopes it will make others do the same, and after the compliments I got for my vocals on Locussolus ‘Next To You’ I think I’ll step up to the mic too."



Join Heidi and the rest of us at the Smoke N’ Mirrors party at Monarch this Friday:


Smoke N’ Mirrors Presents Edit Murphy + Friends

October 5th | 10pm – 4am | 101 Sixth Street, SF CA
