RMX ROUNDUP: Gavin Turek + TOKiMONSTA / AYER + TKDJS / Whitney Houston x Halogen


It’s time for another Remix Roundup, and this week we’ve got a full line-up of soul-powered, dance-packed mixes. First up is a retake of a track by disco’s new pop princess, Gavin Turek. Having released her single “Frontline” this spring, the dance homage to Donna Summers has now been given the remix treatment by TOKiMONSTA. TOKi, who is one of our favorite female producers in the biz dials up the drama and dazzling deep house vibes on the original, while keeping Turek’s invigorating vox at the forefront. The remix package for this track drops June 26 via iheartcomix’s new label 1INFINITY.

Next is a rework taken from AYER‘s new EP, In My Headphones. The Brooklyn artist, who’s been featured on our remix segment before has crafted quite the soulful electropop song with the eponymous single off the EP. Fellow Brooklyn group TKDJS turn the track into an energetic house number replete with dark synths and deep bass lines. Pick up a free download for your headphones here.

Last but not least, we’re throwing it back with a spectacular rework of Whitney Houston‘s iconic track, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” God knows how much we loved Whitney in the ’80s, and thankfully Halogen gives us the chance to revisit “The Greatest Voice of All Time” in this century with a new twist on the classic. The Atlanta-based production duo apply a vibrant house backdrop to Whitney’s heart-stopping vocals, and the result is a rousing dance number that will make you wanna feel the heat with somebody — as well as to snag the track gratis on Halogen’s Soundcloud page.
