In addition to Spencer and Hill’s “1234,” David Guetta played this new remix called “Craissy 2K12″ from DJ Obek and MC Ambush. Albert Neve and Chuckie take on the remixing duties, giving this a distinctly harder sound and a drop that will definitely surprise you. It’s the kind of track to play to pump up a crowd, and the huge synths should have no problem getting the job done.
The remix package of Chuckie and Promise Land’s largely successful single, “Breaking Up,” was released yesterday via Cr2 Records. While versions from Inpetto, Junxterjack, and Dzeko & Torres each offer unique variations of building chord play and melodic synths, the remix from Bartosz Brenes & Tony Romera is the standout of the pack. The collaboration from the Costa Rican and French producers yields a pounding electro house breakdown that is nicely complimented by Amanda Wilson’s soaring vocals. Check the previews out below and head over to Beatport to purchase your favorite.
It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday but before we start celebrating the arrival of the weekend let’s recap today’s news and releases. The most exciting bit of news is that a Swedish storm is set to blow through New York City on Halloween. Although there are still some pieces to put together, we do know the storm will be comprised of Sebastian Ingrosso, Otto Knows, and Alesso. Read on for the rest of today’s roundup. (more…)
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has been putting out great music for some time now but this is his first appearance on Dancing Astronaut. His upcoming single “Household Goods” is out on August 20th with a whole host of remixes from Zeds Dead, Zinc, Enei, Mano Le Tough, and Li’l Silva. Zeds Dead preview their take on “Household Goods” and reveal an incredibly chilled out and soothing remix. Have a listen to the preview below and stay tuned for the release later this month.
Madeon and Dillon Francis are two of our favorite producers at the moment, and honestly, we didn’t even have to listen to this track to know that we were going to love it. Dillon does not majorly make over “Finale,” but rather leaves the essential elements of the track largely untouched. However, Dillon’s unique sound is unmistakable and it is in the track’s drop that Dillon’s talents truly shine. This will be released on Madeon’s PopCultur label on August 16th, exclusively on Beatport.
Parisian producer Mercer, who recently collaborated with Mystique on “Here Comes That Sound,” is back with a brand new remix of Joachim Garraud & Alesia’s “Nox.” Don’t let the airy beginning fool you, a thick, sinister sounding electro bassline is just around the corner. This is topped off by a drop that has all the energy of an acid house drop but with more of an electro house feel. We predict that this track will destroy dance floors wherever it is played.

We haven’t heard much from Australian producer Walden recently, but he has been hard at work. His remix of “In My Mind” breathes life into one of the most overplayed tracks of the summer. The remix uses a light synth melody which retains only the high points of the original, creating a more uplifting track. It’s unusual that a track of this magnitude has a remix that compares to the original, but it seems that Walden has done just that. If this track made you fall in love with the Aussie, head over to his Soundcloud for some free downloads, and don’t forget to support his latest release on Beatport.
Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard is the latest artist to try his hand at remixing Disclosure. He adds his touches to “Control” and gives it a really chill /deep house feel. We’ve been hearing so much big room progressive house lately that Goddard’s remix makes for a lovely change of pace. Have a listen to the track on the soundcloud embed below and if you’re feeling it, head over to Beatport to grab yourselves a copy.
We never expected Usher tracks to become the norm in the dance remix world, but alas this is the case. His most recent tracks — “Climax,” “Numb,” and “Euphoria” — were all produced by dance artists and subsequently remixed in the same fashion. Now Ken Loi is throwing his hat in the proverbial Usher ring with a remix of his radio hit “Scream.” Loi takes the track from a saccharine sweet pop track to one fit for the dance floor by inserting a bass heavy, synth laden drop and various other dance elements. He’s also giving the track away for free as part of a series he’s dubbed “Free Music Friday,” so gear up for some more free tracks.
The intense beats and heavy rhythms typical of dance music certainly have their time and place, but sometimes we need to slow it down a bit. Teendaze is offering us that necessary break with their remix of “Perth,” originally by the Grammy-winning band Bon Iver. His lovely and moving remix of “Perth” makes the task of turning a Bon Iver song into a dance music track look easy, which it isn’t. The remix was birthed as the result of a Bon Iver x Spotify x Indaba Music remix contest so we’re curious to see the results — especially since Teendaze claims this is only his first entry.
