New kid on the block and Australian producer Omniment (aka Corey Brown) has just shared a stellar atmospheric remix of Stwo’s “Eden.” This remix sounds fresh and youthful – Omniment’s take on “Eden” calls on a piano-driven melody to create an exciting ethereal sound. Check it out below!

German singer/songwriter Stefany June has the song for the season with her new single “The Beat That My Heart Plays.” Thoughtfully and artfully composed, the track boasts indie folk elegance and wistful maturity.

“Sometimes you want to write a song and sometimes the song just wants to be written. With ‘Beat That My Heart Plays’ the second option was the case. I wrote this song for a friend who was caught in depression, as a lullaby to calm the storm in his head.” – Stefany

Got an extra special treat in my inbox today from Whaleskin (aka Willow Bell). Whaleskin is a multi-instrumentalist who’s got an ear for glossy melodies. His latest is a remix of Teem’s “Proof Of You” that’s equal parts sweat, energy and hypnosis. Take a listen below and enjoy!

I’ve been a fan of Brooklyn-based eletropop band Body Language since I’ve seen them at SXSW several years ago and it’s great to see that they’re still at it. Just this week the group released a new single “Really Love,” which sounds quite different than the Body Language of days past. “Really Love” is an IDM track with frenetic synths and scattered vocals that boasts both strong melodies and head-banging beats.

The single is being released on February 17 via B3SCI Records and will be available at digital retailers and on limited edition 7-inch red vinyl. It is now available for pre-order.

London producer Zinc has turned out a fantastic remix of The Prodigy’s “Nasty.” The original track is The Prodigy’s first single since their Invaders Must Die! album 6 years ago, and with Zinc’s remix the track gets a second life. A collision of shifty breaks, warped acid arps, and spastic percussion, Zinc’s surgical re-imagining aims to take “Nasty” out of the electro thrash arena and onto weatherworn dance floors the world over.

Sir Sly shares their remix package of the single “You Haunt Me” and the one we’re really swooning over is from ShadowLuxx. The 18-year-old writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist first came gained notoriety from his collaboration with Afrojack on “Catch Tomorrow” featuring Sting, which was released by Def Jam on Afrojack’s Forget the World album. Be sure to grab his remix of “You Haunt Me,” out now via Cherrytree Records.
