The Chainsmoker return with yet another remix. This time they remix a favorite vocalist of mine Mikky Ekko (the guy on Rihanna’s huge hit Stay, which he actually wrote, if you didn’t know) and his great song Kids. This is more of their upbeat style and it definitely gets the job done.
Original (just because I really like it):
music. check. picture. check. do it.
(2nd one is free)
New track from The Chainsmokers. Always a nice surprise. They remixed Girlfriend by Icona Pop on this one. This has a harder drop then their normal euphoric sound, and seems to be more for the club/festival scene. It has already received support from Tiesto on his Club Life podcast, which is pretty cool. Their mini video is above, which features Alex and Drew as their current selves and their younger counterparts, and the audio preview is below.
Oh, Branchez at it again. Oh kill ‘em. This is a ridiculously dope trap remix of OWSLA label’s What So Not (never heard of them/him/it? until I heard this track). Definitely do yourself a favor and listen to this immediately. It’s available on Beatport and iTunes.
One of the reasons I haven’t been posting as much is I have been delving into various different genres lately, and not that much house. Sometimes you gotta branch out and take a breather, so I have been listening to music that is a little more relaxing. One of the songs I heard in this time that I really enjoyed was Change by BANKS. Her music is all pretty good and relaxing, but Change is definitely her track that stuck out to me personally. Well, The Chainsmokers decided to remix it and took a deep house approach (based on their song description it seems they were trying to make a track while simultaneously showing an acquaintance that they understood deep house). Being deep house, it’s not their usual uptempo approach, but it’s good.
So.. It’s been awhile. We are all sorry for the lack of posting. I guess everyone’s been busy. Jeff is back at school. Wilki is working and DJing (or putting together fraiche mixes). Will is.. well he’s working, but it’s not like he would be posting anyway (kidding.. but seriously). While I bought Grand Theft Auto and Madden. I’ll let you decide who the lazy bastard is. Hint: It’s me. Anyway, there’s no better way to get back in the swing of things than posting a song by our friends, The Chainsmokers. This is the first song they haven’t put out for free, and I think everyone who has enjoyed their free downloads in the past should support them by purchasing this on Beatport. In other exciting news for the duo, they will be doing a set at TommorowWorld at 12:30 pm on Saturday. If you are down there and trying to get after it early I would recommend checking them out.
They also made a track for TomorrowWorld, but it seems to be off SoundCloud now. It’s called Rave The Fck Up (TomorrowWorld Edit), if you can locate it, it’s pretty festival worthy.
Just got my wisdom teeth out 2 hours ago, so I’m in no mood to write things. or move. This is a funky jam from DCUP, who has been dropping serious heat lately.
