Been a minute since we posted a RMX Roundup, a semi-bimonthly segment in which we bring you the freshest mixes and electronic beats on the blogosphere. To begin this installment we have the LA brotherly duo Casino Gold‘s recast of TLC‘s ’99 hit “No Scrubs.” Upping the tempo and supplanting the original TLC vocals with a smooth male tenor, this modern house rendition gives the listener a whole new reason to enjoy the anthemic melody of the original in 2016. Listen below and pick up a free DL on Soundcloud.
The next one comes courtesy of up-and-coming producer Memoryy, who gained major industry cred when he penned the theme song for the new Chelsea Handler Netflix show ‘Chelsea.’ Not one to rest on his laurels, the LA-based electropop producer just released a mix of Parisian singer Tanis‘ track “Blackout.” Augmenting the song with a fluttering synth line, Memoryy takes the Tanis number to a new level of tasty synthpop goodness. Stream below.
Last but certainly not least, seasoned Canadian producer Jacques Greene has created a sparkling new edit of Frank Ocean‘s instant classic “White Ferrari.” A fan of the new Ocean album, Greene tweeted: “Respect to Frank for being a light beam of a human. Blonde has been fucking me up and saving me in equal measure since it came out.”
Clearly inspired, Greene knocks it out of the park with the neon reimagining of the minimalist track, expanding upon the electronics and positioning Ocean’s soulful vox at the fore. Grab a free copy of this stunner that’s made its way into every Greene set since it’s inception over on his website. Greene also just released the two-track EP Afterglow, which we highly recommend.
