RAC – I Still Wanna Know (feat Rivers Cuomo) [Goldroom Remix]

After coming across Goldroom’s remix of RAC’s single “I Still Wanna Know”, it hit me—I’ve been listening to RAC for nearly a decade. It all started on Hypem, when I crossed paths with his remix of Penguin’s Prison’s “The Worse It Gets”. One listen, and I was totally hooked. Then came the Ra Ra Riot “Manner To Act” remix, which forever solidified my fandom. RAC’s found a way to walk the line between the sounds of 80s synth nostalgia and the earthy, intimate textures of early 00’s indie rock, giving each of his songs an emotional energy that’s instantly recognizable. Goldroom ups that ante in his remix, sprinkling in modernized house elements like driving, anthemic piano chords and a buoyant, thick drumbeat. In doing so, he’s made an RAC song even more RAC than before, giving it that same effervescence that snagged my ear all those years ago.

Shallows – Matter (BLU J Remix)

Canadian duo BLU J take on Shallows’ “Matter” and spin it into a moody, chilly midtempo track. It’s a subtle choice to play at the afterparty, but versatile enough to be worked into a mainstage set too. The “Matter” remix is yet another stellar recent addition to BLU J’s growing catalogue—listen to BLU J’s Soundcloud to hear more.

 

Doujin – Demons In My Soul (Remix) (feat. NABUDDAH & YALLAHY)

 Doujin brothers NABUDDAH and YALLAHY connect together for a remix of three six mafia affiliate Lil Gin’s classic Demons In My Soul, prod by Dj Paul. The song came together one day in the studio as Nabuddah and YALLAHY were freestyling. They came across this instrumental and made the Demons in my Soul remix. Art work by fellow Doujin member cloudroller. Listen to the remix above.

theWHOevers – R U DOWN (Backpackers Remix)

 

Je$$e and Lloyd have put their fan favorite song up for remix. Among the latest submissions is this one from The Backpackers. This remix is heavy on the keyboard, lounge-feels and allow Je$$e’s acapella to shine through, something that goes unnoticed in the original.

Enjoy the theWHOevers – R U DOWN (Backpackers Remix) below!

Basecamp – In Stone (VALENTINE Remix)

On first listen, Valentine’s version of In Stone is a solid chill-bass track, and I found myself yearning to be under the bright lights and lasers. With just enough bass to get my head bobbing and body swaying, paired with effects delivering all the feels, this one is a definite crowd-pleaser.

Upon comparison to the original, I liked that Valentine did not stray too far from the initial vibe and instead used it to drive his creative process: something I look for in good remix. With bells and whistles in all the right places, I believe that this remix has outdone the original, and its available for free download!
