RMX ROUNDUP: CRi + Rosewater Ctz / Promises Ltd. + Gilligan Moss / Christine and the Queens + Tourist

Roughly every other weekend, we share a RMX Roundup of the freshest mixes and electronic beats on the blogosphere. To begin this installment we have a new edit of CRi‘s “Why I Love You” from a fellow Canadian producer who goes by the name Rosewater Ctz. CRi is currently one of our favorite electronic producers, and he just released a remix package for the prototype via TOKiMONSTA‘s Young Art Records. While we don’t know much about Rosewater Ctz, we love the cinematic and almost monastic quality that he brings to the original cut with the atmospheric opening and dramatic drop that reminds us a little of Delerium‘s “Silence.” Listen to this stunner below.

Another production duo killing the game is Gilligan Moss, who just dropped their rendition of Promises Ltd.‘s hit song “American Eyes.” If you haven’t heard, Promises Ltd. is a new electropop duo consisting of artist Chrome Sparks and vocalist Charlie Brand. Moss apply their signature synth wizardry to the track, taking the pop song to new euphoric heights.

Finally, we have Tourist‘s new interpretation of Christine and The Queens‘ “Saint Claude.” Tourist, the London-based and Grammy award-winning producer (William Phillips) gives the single by the French singer Héloïse Letissier a rousing reimagining and solid dance tick. Stream below.

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

RMX ROUNDUP: Lully / CRi / Goldwash + Glassio / Speaker of the House / Bewilderbeast

CRi

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.
