RMX ROUNDUP: The Drums + RAC / Sam Feldt + EDX / José González + Dino Soccio


Kicking off this installment of Remix Roundup is a new one from RAC‘s repertoire, a remix of The Drums “Kiss Me Again.” RAC takes the surfy original (from the Brooklyn duo’s latest album Encyclopedia) to new levels with layered synths and a drum machine, giving it an overall ’80s feel. Regarding the selection, RAC said, “The Drums have been somewhat of an obsession of mine. When the opportunity came up to do a remix, I had to do it.” Pick up a free download of this jubilant mix on Soundcloud.

Speaking of the ’80s, if you’re a product of the era with a predilection for ’90s pop, you’ll most likely recognize this next one. Veteran Swiss-based producer EDX has done a retake of Sam Feldt‘s cover of the 1993 classic, “Show Me Love” by Robin S. We loved the original summery reimagination from Dutch producer Sam Feldt, and EDX elevates the tropical house track to a dance-floor ready jam. Sam Feldt’s version will be out June 1 via Spinnin’ Records.

Last but not least, we lead you out with this hauntingly eloquent rework of José González‘ single, “Let It Carry You” from LA producer/DJ Dino Soccio. Soccio manages to retain the airy organic feel of the original (that won accolades from the man González himself), while simultaneously adding a chillwavey nu-disco backdrop. Let this resplendent edit carry you to transcendence just after the four-minute mark.
