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.

Artist Spotlight: Yuna


If you’ve not yet heard of Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna, I implore you to spend some time getting acquainted with this rising star. Breaking onto the North American stage in 2012 with her self-titled debut, the already internationally-acclaimed artist released her follow up album Nocturnal this past fall.

Filled with velvety vocals and melodic instrumentation, highlights of the album include the sultry song “Falling,” produced by Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal of the musical duo Rhye. Watch the video for this enticing, disco-infused number below. Also a standout from the LP is the infectious single “I Wanna Go,” produced by Mike Einziger of Incubus. Check out a refreshing remix of the track by Parisian producer Belarbi below.

Another outstanding interpretation comes by way of Canadian duo Adventure Club with their insanely seductive rendition of Yuna’s earlier single “Lullabies.” Demonstrative, bass heavy and drop-laden, the mix only serves to amplify Yuna’s already emotionally-charged, signature soul-pop sound. Download both of these mixes (for free!) on Soundcloud today, and pick up Yuna’s new album on iTunes here.
