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!

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.

LA duo Bixel Boys have had an astronomical rise and a seemingly unstoppable career. 2014 was a big year for the two – they released a long line of solid remixes and originals, debuted their #FREELIFE Jersey’s and apparel, and played massive shows. Their first offering of 2015 is a remix of Le Youth’s hit “R E A L”. Here Bixel Boys have turned “R E A L” into a upbeat, club tune without loosing the integrity of the original vocals provided by Brandy on her 90’s hit “I Wanna Be Down”.

Vancouver producer Pat Lok has been a busy guy. Just last week he shared a new original single “All In My Head” featuring soulful vocalist Desiree Dawson. This week, Pat again flexes his remix muscle, turning out Australian band Gold Fields’ latest track “Hold Me” into a funky piano laden jam.

Stay tuned for more from Pat as he readies the remixes to “All In My Head,” featuring reworks from Gold Fields, Howson’s Groove, and SYRE.

“The original version has got this carefree 80s beach vibe. I decided to go for more of a 90s inspired MK-style piano jam, bringing up the energy but keeping the feel good sensibilities that Gold Fields always bring to the table.”

MissyUrsula1000Remix

Fresh bootlegs landing in your inbox is just one of the perks of this job…. thankfully, the latest from Ursula 1000 just paid me that service. This go around, the Brooklyn based impresario of funk does a sneaky, ‘G-House’ inspired rip on Missy Elliott’s “Gossip Folks’ that is everything but disappointing. Utilizing dubby, acoustic bass riffs and a fat 808 line, the the sweat inducing rawness of this cut is palpable and can be yours for the low low price of FREE.
