RMX ROUNDUP: Jessie Ware + Alex Adair / LANY + Ferdinand Weber / Rhye + Nick Monaco


This week’s Remix Roundup starts off with the sumptuous new rework of Jessie Ware‘s new single, “Say You Love Me,” courtesy of Alex Adair. The young UK producer won us over with his debut track, “Make Me Feel Better,” and now he’s managed to trump himself with this rousing Ware reinterpretation that is dare we say it — better than the original. Stream below and you’ll understand.

Next is the upbeat, shimmering new mix of “ILYSB” that dropped last month from the nascent LA outfit LANY. Germany’s Ferdinand Weber gives the pop track a tropical house makeover, rendering it dance floor-ready.

And last but not least we have SF producer Nick Monaco‘s recent retouch of Rhye‘s “3 Days.” Turning up the tempo ever so slightly, Monaco stays true to the soulful original while suffusing it with some synth-coated minerals. Pick up a free download on SoundCloud and look out for Monaco’s debut LP, Mating Call to drop September 9 via Soul Clap Records.

RMX ROUNDUP: ZHU + Amtrac / Lana Del Ray + Munk / Alex Adair


Time for another Remix Roundup — in which we share some of the best new remixes and electronic offerings currently in circulation on the blogosphere.

Last week’s roundup featured the Odesza remix of the ZHU track “Faded,” and now we’ve got another stellar one to share from the Kentucky DJ/producer Amtrac. His nu-disco rendition is a high energy and uplifting take on the original that will ramp up your weekend in no time. Next is a new remix of Lana Del Ray’s “West Coast” from German producer and Gomma label maestro Mathias Modica, aka Munk. While we’re not big fans of the original tbh, the sexy percussion and added bossa nova flavor make this deep house derivative something worth getting excited about.

Lastly, we have a new electronic track by the up-and-coming UK producer Alex Adair. The single, “Make Me Feel Better” will do just that with its uplifting house vibes and sun-swathed synths. Sampling from Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing,” Adair has a knack for combining unexpected sounds in a way that is imaginative and invigorating. Press play on all three tracks below.
