We’ve received a number of standout electronic submissions lately, so today we’ve got a supersized edition of RMX Roundup — a segment in which we bring you the freshest mixes and/or electronic numbers on the blogosphere. First up is the debut track from a mysterious London-based producer who goes by the name Lully. His first single, “Slow D’s” is an enterprising, sensuous number showcasing pitch-shifted vocals, a stuttering beat and some hi-hat sorcery. Although next to nothing is known about the artist, the track comes replete with a poem, which you can check out over on the Noisey premiere.
Next is a new single from the Canadian electronic artist known as CRi, featuring vocals from Ouri & Odile M. “Why I Love You” is taken from CRi’s recent EP, Tell Her on TOKiMONSTA‘s label Young Art Records. Brightly layered synths, a euphoric soundscape and an excellent build make this your better than average house track.
The first step to making an ace remix is choosing top-notch original material, and Brooklyn electro-pop duo Glassio did just that with the selection of Goldwash‘s aptly titled track “Need To Hear.” While the original is an excellent piece of “existential funk,” Glassio’s rendition combines disco influences and atmospheric synthesizers to create an intricately layered piece de resistance, designed for a day-at-the-pool or rooftop soirée.
Next is a straight-up dance cut from LA producer/performer Speaker of the House. Instrumentally, it’s not overly complex but the energy and warm, kaleidoscopic synths render this house beat infectious AF. Listen below.
And finally, we beseech you to get familiar with Bewilderbeast, a bedroom electronic outfit started by South London’s Gus BC. This August via Color Station they reissued their 2013 LP Unreal_Estate, on which a number of inventive electronic compositions can be found—including but not limited to “Swimming II.” Again, this is another one for your summer playlist so get on it.
