Gorgon City is the collaboration between talented UK producers Foamo and RackNRuin. Combining their potent production abilities, the two have released some truly stunning deep house tunes under their collaborative guise of Gorgon City. Their newest track alongside MNEK, “Ready For Love,” was recently dubbed Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World. Now MNEK’s refix has been previewed, offering a slower, more R&B-centric take on the single, and showing off MNEK’s own production abilities. Both versions of “Ready For Your Love” will be released on January 19th.Posted by
While Le Youth is still in the midst of making a name for himself among the dance music community, his latest rendition of Disclosure‘s “Voices” may be the extra push needed. Wes James’ describes his own style as “90s sounds refracted through a thoroughly modern aesthetic…Breezy California vibes touched by a twist of European flair and an air of mystery.” James’ execution of “Voices” is precisely as construed. 90′s house meets garage as the the two genres fuse together so organically that it’s difficult to decide which of the two versions is better. While the original consists of the signature Disclosure sound with mellow, down to earth, and funky garage elements, Le Youth exhibits a more energetic, chic twist with the perfect ratio of rapid piano keys and poppy percussion.Posted by
After a series of remakes from the likes of Henry Fong and Hayden James, one of 2013′s favorite electronic songs, “Without You,” gets yet another makeover, though this time it’s from the original creator himself, Dillon Francis. Gearing up for the full “Without You” Remix EP set for release on December 10th, the Los Angeles producer reworks his slower, angsty break up tune into a big room melody. The Mad Decent funny man dubs this one “a big fucking cryo blast in your face.” The full EP is expected to include versions of the fan favorite from Flux Pavillion & Doctor P, Torro Torro, Treasure Fingers and Low Steppa. As Dillon says, “cue the fireworks.”

Just hours after Steve Aoki and Linkin Park performed their new collaboration, “A Light That Never Comes” on national TV, Vicetone released their version of the new single with a remix on SoundCloud. Only one year after the dutch duo came to fruition, Ruben and Victor are off to an incredible start, with 5 HypeM #1′s, a 6 week sold out North American tour and performances at Electric Zoo and TomorrowWorld under their belt. Garnering a spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 at #60, Vicetone’s passion for music drives their success, and this remix is just another example of their uncanny ability to enhance any track. Heightening synths and speeding things up a bit, while still preserving Chester Bennington’s vocals, Vicetone’s adaptation of this already feisty cross-genre collab packs a powerful punch.

San Francisco’s The M Machine has risen to the challenge of taking on one of 2013′s most highly regarded works, Mat Zo‘s “Lucid Dreams.” The M Machine stays true to Zo’s feathery, intricately layered tune but turns down the tempo and weaves in a heavier bass underlay and a darker melody while still highlighting the poignant aspects of Zo’s original work.
In conjunction with the “Lucid Dreams” announcement, The M Machine took to their Facebook page to explain future plans. The trio divulges that there are plenty of originals and singles in the works and are headed towards an EP release. They plan to diverge from a ‘Metropolis Pt. 3′ and hope to transition towards a different artistic and thematic direction. In the meantime, listen to The M Machine’s remix of “Lucid Dreams” and purchase the Lucid Dreams (Remixes) on iTunes or Beatport today.Posted by

Seven Lions‘ remix to Röyksopp’s “Running To The Sea” has been a long time coming. While we heard rumors of Jeff Montalvo’s rework months ago, the hype was verified by a premiere on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy radio this September. Following his experimental, occult single “Serpent of Old,” Montalvo’s remix of “Running to the Sea” is a return to the potent and emotional dubstep for which he became known. Aptly balancing Susanne Sundfør’s spine-tingling vocals with some thick, churning bass, Seven Lions presents one of his heaviest tunes to date

With a plethora of remixes and a full length LP added to her already illustrious résumé in 2013, Maya Jane Coles has added another world class production to her stellar year. Much like she did on Tiga and Audion’s “Let’s Go Dancing,” Rudimental’s “Free,” and Alex Jones and My Favorite Robot’s “Wholegrain,” Maya Jane Coles lends her deep house touch to Bonobo’s “First Fires.” Placing a snare heavy groove under Grey Reverend’s vocals, the remix never loses steam and is another masterful production from one of dance music’s most unique talents.
