Usher – Good Kisser (Disclosure Remix)

Brothers, Guy and Howard Lawrence, aka Disclosure, are back at it again, and have released another track for our listening pleasure. As with nearly every other track they’ve put out in recent memory, their remix of Usher‘s “Good Kisser”, is nothing short of brilliant. Usher‘s silky smooth vocals blend wonderfully with the classic UK garage/house production we’ve come to know and love, from Disclosure, creating a wildly rhythmic and fun track that you can be sure to be hearing a lot more of, as the summer continues. Jam on, JamFam!

WAVO Exclusive: Gabe Flaherty – Booze Run ft. Loeb

This new Gabe Flaherty track with collaborator Loeb has all the Fourth of July funk you’d want this weekend and we’ve got the exclusive download for the track through!  With all sorts of microsampling throughout the track, big fat basses, saxophone and wah-wah pedealed guitars, this original track is such a refreshingly creative piece of music from Gabe, which we have certainly come to expect.  A little bit more on the free download:

Recent talks of a data mining scheme and overzealous copyright enforcement from SoundCloud and psychological test being conducted unknowingly by Facebook has seemingly everyone turning up their noses at the two services.  There are certainly alternatives for artists who release songs, give them away in exchange for Facebook likes, and then can’t reach anyone they just gave away their product for free to.  So help the artists and SHARE their post instead in order to get the free download so that other people discover the jams you’re listening to rather than subscribing to them via Facebook “LIKES” and probably never see it.  Because face it, Facebook sucks.

Porter Robinson – Lionhearted (Giraffage Remix)

As a part of Mixmag’s Gold series, Porter Robinson gave an in-depth interview regarding his upcoming WORLDS album and things from his influences and goals for the project and what he thinks about the current state of dance music. He mentioned the angst he felt being pigeonholed into DJ-ready music, his performances in the upcoming WORLDS Tour with Giraffage and Lemaitre as well as his influences by the work of Kanye West & Daft Punk. We’ve heard most of these responses from Porter before, who is on pace for an unbelievable release to usher in a much needed sonic overhaul of what constitutes popular music.

I think that a person’s ability to escape their sound is largely dependent on whether they have a real new idea or not. I’m trying to not be too concerned about what those guys do because my biggest priority right now is not to change electronic music, I really just want to get my own music right if people want to follow me, that’s amazing, but the first thing I need to do is be proud of what I’m doing.

Porter Robinson – Lionhearted (Giraffage Remix)

Along with the interview feature came the premiere of WORLDS Tour mate Giraffage’s remix to Porter’s latest single Lionhearted. The song features birds chirping, jazzy chords, and crisp dancable drum work for a perfectly chilled old school house spin on the original. Be sure to preorder WORLDS for it’s release on 8/11 and you can pre-order Lionhearted as well.

Wave Racer – Mix for Diplo & Friends BBCR1

At this point in the game, if you don’t know who Wave Racer is, then I’m sorry, my friend, but you’re late to the game. The 20-year old Aussie producer/DJ has been making waves under the Wave Racer moniker for almost exactly a year, and has enjoyed a rapidly expanding following as a result of his wildly diverse mixes and near-flawless future bass production. In this particular mix, (originally aired on 3/16/14, but released yesterday), he takes us on a journey, bouncing between genres like it’s nobody’s bushiness. From jersey club, to trap, to songs that’ll leave you asking yourself what you even just heard, Wave Racer absolutely killes it with this one.

Baauer – Clang

Everyone’s favorite Harlem Shaker and bass fiend, Baauer, has been very quiet as of late. However, he certainly makes some noise, both literally and figuratively, with his latest release, “Clang”. This comes not even a full 24 hours after releasing a peculiar and ambiguous sound clip entitled, “The Making Of…”, which left most listeners scratching their heads. “Clang” on the other hand, will have those same listeners moving their feet and enjoying the song’s hard hitting beat, which is nothing but complimented by its evolving, twanging synths, and bouncy rhythm. After hearing this banger, one can only imagine what Baauer has in store for us next.

Afrojack Remixes Cashmere Cat Produced Ludacris Track ‘Party Girls’

While it’s no secret that nothing will touch the original Cashmere Cat production on the Ludacris track ‘Party Girls’ with Jeremih and Wiz Khalifa. It’s really cool to see that as Cashmere Cat is getting more and more major label attention, established artists like Afrojack are starting to do official remixes for label purposes. As some of the larger labels start to get wise on this new wave of music coming in, I can’t wait to see how these kind of happenings progress.

As a pleasant surprise enough, the track actually isn’t a dance track at all but a straight hip-hop instrumental done Afrojack style. I like it well enough but for some reason I just keep dreaming about what this could’ve been if Diplo was in the room for this one like their work on Chris Brown’s track Look At Me Now.

Creaky Jackals – Addicted

If this is the first time you’re hearing of French production duo, Creaky Jackals, you may want to take note. Signed to newly formed, Paris-based label, Unborn, the pair have been dropping bangers for months. With evidently advanced sound design, and a knack for FAT bass, it’s clear that this won’t be the last time you hear about these guys, especially considering Unborn was founded by French trap kings, Tomsize and Simeon. Without further ado, we present Creaky Jackals, with their latest tune, Addicted.

ZHU – Faded (TÂCHES Remix)

There is no question that ZHU is just moments away from becoming an absolute superstar and his single ‘Faded’ has turned into somewhat of a cult classic. The vocals are absolutely perfect and that dark vibe has brought out a number of incredible remixes, most notably the ODESZA remix that I wrote about on NestHQ. Mind of a Genius, the label behind the music, has put together an incredible official remix EP with features from names like Lido, Amtrac, The Magician and Taches. A plucky guitar melody dances over the percussive bass groove and backing of jazzed up keys in this spectacular official remix from TÂCHES that is perfect for those dark after-hours kinda nights. Grab The Nightday EP and check out ZHU on Facebook and Twitter!

Slow Magic – Girls

I couldn’t be happier about the recent spike in perfectly chilled downtempo music to come out as of late and if that’s your jam, be sure to check out the enigmatic Slow Magic and his latest release “Girls”. A tantalizing vocal chop carries over swelling synths and a steady diet of ambient guitars and keys for a soundscape that you could let your body and mind float away on. If this is something you’re into, definitely go over to his SoundCloud and check his remix of Delorean and original single with almost 750,000 plays On Yr Side. You can grab the single on iTunes from his upcoming Downtown Records album and check all his links below!
