Our friday just got a little better with the arrival of a promo mail containing two new remixes from Jakwob and Lifelike of the second single from UK artist Killa Kelas upcoming album “Amplified” (dropping September 21st). “Everyday” was produced by French house master Alan Braxe (co-creator of the Stardust dance anthem “Music Sounds Better With You”). The Jakwob remix sees Killa Kela getting the similar treatment as Ellie Goulding got earlier this spring where Jakwob brings it up a notch or two and bangs out a fierce dubsteppy remix track, whereas Lifelike decides to treat us to a classic sweeping synths and French house sounding remix.

We could have called this the Tommie Sunshine mega-post but since the man got a new release out on Ultra Records we went with that instead. Tommie picked his favorite new producers to get to work on his latest offering. The album is up on iTunes and Beatport with remixes from Il Diablo, Bit Thief, Kitch ‘n Sync, Figure, NoNewYork and Jayou Dodge.

To promote it Tommie sent us his latest mixtape, a remix from the album and some tracks that weren’t on the album. We also included the accapella so that you can go to work on the track yourself. Then head over to Tommie Sunshine’s soundcloud page and drop it in the dropbox.

I held this back from the official release specifically for the blogs. I feel like this bassline simply murders and will give the track a new lease on life in the underground. Il Diablo’s music is special to me and he is going to be a major talent to contend with. I am calling this now as his collab with Jay Robinson, Dub Frequency gets bigger and bigger.

After the mixes were done I started speaking to these guys and got an idea for them to do an update of the first single I did for Ultra with myself & Peaches on vocals. They hit the bulls-eye with an ’09 approach that rocks the floor hard.

Marc Romboy vs. Tommie Sunshine – Bodyjack [Dan Aux’s Way Crazies remix] (direct link)
I posted the a cappella to this one on Soundcloud and this New Zealander sent this to me. It is above and beyond mental and needs to be heard.

Fall Out Boy – I Don’t Care [Tommie Sunshine & Mightyfools remix] (direct link)
I don’t know how we held this back for so long but it can now be released into the wild. Done on two continents with the desire to do something big. I am such a fan of Mightyfools and it was a pleasure to collaborate with them. Featured on Will Bailey’s Bass Weazal Birthday Mixtape, I feel this could get a fair amount of play.

Phosho

Think 2wice Records are continuing their streak of releasing bumping EPs. The latest one is the “Control” EP from Phosho which is a new electro/juke focused side project of grime producer Salva. For this release he pairs up with fellow San Francisco MC, Cerebral Vortex who happens to be 1/2 of 215:TFK. We have a remix from label head Tactic of the title track and he gives it a afro-centric percussion to keep things moving while a pulsing, garage subbass guarantees that the dancefloor will light up.
