Time for another edition of Remix Roundup! The LA producer Goldroom has been killing it lately, and I’m loving his mix of MS MR‘s “Hurricane.” This track has already been given the remix treatment several times over, but Goldroom brings something new to the table with signature sun-drenched production. Next we have EMBRZ, the boy wonder from Ireland with a knack for glitch-pop. His take on The 1975‘s track “Settle Down” is spot-on with his chopped up synths and sonic dreamscape. And finally, Dutch artist Nick Van Hofwegen (Young & Sick) has teamed up with Harvest Records labelmate, Mr Little Jeans to give her song “Good Mistake” a darker, more digitized remodel. Retaining the original catchy melody that makes the original so brilliant, the soulful ‘Y&S $500 Remix’ is a fresh new way to enjoy the electropop number. Stream all three electronic gems below.
New British band The 1975 have been hard at work recently, having released three EP’s to date with their fourth, IV out on May 20th. I’ve been meaning to share the delectable track “Chocolate” from their latest EP Music for Cars for some time, however it was their sexy new video for “The City” that finally impelled me to pull the trigger on the post. Props to the artistic director as the vid features some stunning overlaid shots of the urban cityscape.
Also in the works is the group’s first full length album, which will be co-produced by Mike Crossey, the producer behind the Arctic Monkeys, Foals, and Ben Howard. The 1975 is getting ready to kick off a US tour with headliner The Neighbourhood — in my hometown of Tulsa no less (huzzah!) — on June 4th. More tour dates listed below.
