RMX ROUNDUP: Eat More Cake / Henotik / James Blake + CRi

jb-cri

Roughly every other weekend, we deliver a RMX Roundup of the freshest mixes and electronic beats on the blogosphere. To kick off this installment, we have London outfit Eat More Cake‘s new track “I See You.” Featuring vocalist Claire Row, this deep house number is one for the club with its contagious steel drums and buoyant bassline. You can find a free download for your end-of-summer playlist over on Soundcloud.

Next is a relatively unknown British DJ / producer based out of Barcelona who goes by the handle Henotik. Following a favorable reception with a release through Einmusika Recordings, Henotik has opted to self-release his new track “A Thousand Questions.” And an impressive self-debut it is with its melodic beat, driving sound and warbling synths all guided by an entrancing vocal. We have a thousand more questions for Henotik, and have a feeling we’ll be hearing a lot more from the house producer in the future.

Last but not least, we have the new remix from red hot Canadian producer CRi. Not only did he have a stellar original work that was featured on our last RMX Roundup, now he’s chosen to do a retake of “Noise Above Our Heads,” arguably our favorite track off James Blake‘s latest LP, The Colour in Anything. Although we’ve not been shy about our love for this album — and feel its perfect in its own right — Montreal’s CRi certainly gives the original a shot of adrenaline, revving up the bass and allowing Blake’s haunting vocals to hang delicately in the balance. Stream below and grab a complimentary DL on CRi’s Soundcloud.
