RMX ROUNDUP: Shura + Delorean / ViLLΛGE + Henry Krinkle / Tom Misch & Carmody + Wild Culture

It’s been a slow start for electronic music in the new year thus far, so we’re beginning this week’s installment of Remix Roundup with one we missed in 2014, the Delorean rework of British songstress Shura. One of the strengths of the Spanish act is their eye for source material, which in this case is Shura’s debut single, “Touch.” Delorean drops their signature percussive production style over the dreamy pop ballad and the result is a match made in sonic heaven.

 

Next is a mix from Henry Krinkle that we’ve been sitting on for awhile. The LA-based producer takes the house track “Wanna Tell You” from Romanian electronic artist ViLLΛGE and weaves it into a lush, tropical synth-laden affair with drums, bass and yes, xylophone. Listen below.

 

Finally, we have the Austrian duo Wild Culture with their latest remix of Tom Misch and Carmody’s collaborative track, “So Close.” Wild Culture layer the guitar-licked, vocal-centric duet with a four-to-the-floor dance beat and subtle atmospherics to spice things up. Stream the exquisite effort below.

RMX ROUNDUP: La Roux / Tourist / Route 94 + Henry Krinkle

With this weekend marking the official start to summer, this edition of RMX Roundup begins with something tropical by way of crowd favorite and dance/synthpop act La Roux. “Tropical Chanceur” is the third single shared off their forthcoming album, Trouble In Paradise, whose breezy synths and steel drums will have you beach bound in no time. Listen below and look out for the album to drop July 8 via Cherrytree Records. Next we have another track from Tourist, the British producer whose electronic beats we just can’t seem to get enough of lately. See if you agree by streaming below, and be sure to pick up his new EP Patterns on iTunes. Last but not least is the thrilling new remix of Route 94‘s house track “My Love,” by the Shanghai-based maestro of sexy electronic grooves Henry Krinkle. He describes his sound as originating “somewhere between the swamps and polo fields of South Florida.” Is there anything more to be said? Ready, set, SUMMER.
