RMX ROUNDUP: London Grammar + Jacques Lu Cont / Casino Gold / Ayer + Keljet


Welcome to another Remix Roundup, a semi-biweekly segment in which we bring you the latest and greatest remixes and electronic offerings around. This week’s installment begins with the new Jacques Lu Cont remix of none other than London Grammar (a CokeCan favorite). The Grammy award-winning producer Stuart Price (repping his JLC moniker for this production) delivers yet another exceptional effort, comprised of progressive beats and Hannah Reid’s potent vocals. While we’re used to L’Gramm mixes being of the more ethereal variety, we dig the euphoric dance vibes that JLC brings to the equation here.

On another note, London Grammar is coming back to DC to play another sold-out show at 9:30 Club November 7, so we hope you didn’t wait to get your tix.

Next up is an original production from the LA brotherly duo Casino Gold. We first encountered their lustrous track “Sunbeams” while listening to Goldroom‘s recent Otoño mix, where it was a featured track. Sampling vocals from The Temptation’s “I Wish It Would Rain” alongside slick deep house production, we love Casino Gold’s contemporary take on the classic.

Lastly, we bring it down with Keljet remix of Ayer‘s debut single, “Circle Down.” Dutch producer Keljet infuses some nu-disco life into the lush original by Ayer, the Brooklyn singer/producer duo consisting of Danny Schmittler and Mickey Valen. Keljet’s adds his signature shimmering production style to the Rhye-esque track that is sure to excite your senses. Ayer will be performing in NYC’s upcoming CMJ fest 10/21-25, so definitely check out the schedule if you’re in the NY area.

A music insider tipped me off to NY newcomer EVVY awhile back, and since then I’ve been eagerly anticipating the public premiere of her new track, “Got Me Movin’.” Produced by Mickey Valen & The King (aka Chris Wallitsch), the new production duo strike all the right chords with this melodic and shimmery synthpop number. Stream below, and look out for EVVY’s debut EP to drop later this summer.
