With nearly three decades of production experience under his belt, Paul Oakenfold can be considered one of the most storied veterans of dance music. However, when Paul began his craft, he never would have imagined a remix as unlikely as his latest. Taking on Bruno Mars, Oakenfold makes the chart-topping “Locked Out Of Heaven” his own. Transforming the airwave-dominating song, he crosses pop with house, supplanting with a rapid-fire acid house line while keeping the commercial chorus in tact. Atlantic Records will release Paul Oakenfold’s remix of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven” on January 15th.

19-year-old Swede, Kasbo, has established himself on the prodcution circuit with stunning approaches to Louis Futon, Icona Pop and his breakout original “Kaleidoscope.” Turning back to remix cuties, Kasbo finds himself flipping Vance Joy’s hit “Riptide” on its head, installing praisewrothy future bass hallmarks into a downtempo shell of swirling white noise. A dash of soul and sultry crooning courtesy of Vance Joy’s soaring vocal acumen are met with a brand new melody and drum section courtesy of Kasbo’s impeccable ear. A far cry from the indie original, the R&B influences and percussive leads turn “Riptide” into a post-game playlist must have.
Electronic music fans in upstate New York are about to lose another music festival in 2015. Michael Lang, a representative of Winston Farms, confirmed to Saugerties Times, “The Hudson Project is on hold for the moment. It’s not coming back this year.” The inaugural electronic music festival, held last July, took pride in sharing the same location as Woodstock ’94. The MCP Presents-produced event was intended to act as Camp Bisco’s successor after 15 years of business. While official numbers were not released, it is suspected that The Hudson Project was several thousand short of its 20,000 to 25,000 expected attendees. Many might also recall the cancellation of the festival’s third day due to torrential rainstorms and flooding, leaving thousands of furious fans trapped on the site. It could be that one stroke of bad luck put what would have been an annual affair to rest before it even had a chance to flourish. Lang explains that Winston Farms is in the works of scheduling other events for the summer season: “We’re talking to some other entities about this summer and should have something definitive in a couple of weeks.”
