We’ve got another Remix Roundup for you this week, a biweekly segment in which we bring you the latest and greatest mixes and electronic earworms currently burning up the blogosphere. First up is a rework of rising Canadian pop star Jocelyn Alice‘s hit song “Jackpot” by The Him. The Dutch producers have created an energetic edit by speeding up the tempo — using Alice’s kinetic vox (which recall those of MS MR‘s Lizzy Plapinger) to maximum effect. Look out for Alice’s debut EP to be released later this year.
We recently featured Classixx with their noteworthy cover of Natalie Prass‘ “Bird of Prey,” who in addition to fashioning remixes also craft their own material. The LA production duo have been bringing electronic music to the masses for a few years now, and this week they dropped their second album Faraway Reach via Innovative Leisure. The album includes some choice collabs, including the summery disco anthem “Just Let Go” with How To Dress Well. Just listen below.
Closing out this edition of Remix Roundup is the new one from prolific Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, whose new EP Windings is due out July 8 through Smalltown Supersound/Feedelity Recordings. Windings seems like an apt title for an electronic artist who knows how to deftly take you on a musical odyssey or “space disco” journey as he calls it, much like his peer Todd Terje. Stream the EP’s first single “Closing Shot” below. DC locals can experience his atmospheric set at U Street Music Hall July 28.
