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.
Not much is known about the mysterious new trio LANY other than the fact that they have an affinity for acronyms. Put the Nashville three-piece on your radar though, as their facebook page boldly proclaims that they’re “GONNA BE AROUND FOREVER.” Stream the summery and polished pop track “ILYSB” below.
