Rhye - The Fall (Hazy Mountains Remix)

Hazy Mountains is the solo project of Julian Prott of the German dream pop fourpiece Shoreline Is and his latest effort takes the form of a wonderfully eased-out take on Rhye’s jam ‘The Fall.’ The Dortmund-based producer also recently self-released his debut full-length Breeze last month and you can get your hands on that over at his bandcamp page.

jj - vi (young eagle remix)

About a week ago I had a dream.

A dream that I forgot until just now.

    The sort of dream that I dream about.

Young Eagle reworks jj’s VI. Jesper adds that magic to the mix. Look for it in the night sky. Great new things are coming soon from this young Swedish producer that never seems to come up short.

The sun dips towards the horizon but the deep red of day lingers on our rippled pond. Two logs on the fire, They crackle then pop. Sitting there until the fire dies, we never concede our shadows to the night or the new moon— only the echo of the wind.

Algodón Egipcio - Los Asuntos Pendientes (La Prueba B) (Teen Daze Remix)

Algodón Egipcio, the nighttiming name of Caracas, Venzuela’s Cheky Bertho, recently released a collection of remixes from his debut album La Lucha Constante. That album was one of my favorites from 2011 so I was pretty excited to see a host of new remixes coming my way. These new renditions come by way of remixers all across Europe and the Americas. The Caracas-Canada connection, Teen Daze’s take on the track “Los Asuntos Pendientes (La Prueba B),” adds a nice dancy side to the original. Have a listen below.

Wintercoats - Forest of Lovers (Southern Shores Remix)

Halifax’s Southern Shores, a duo whose Atlantic EP captured my summer’s essence, is back with an end of the year gift in the form of a beautiful remix of Melbourne’s Wintercoats. Already immaculate, James Wallace’s ‘Forest of Lovers’, off his Sketches EP, gets a tropical rerub courtesy of his Canadian labelmates over at Cascine. The label had a awesome year, but next year looks promising with new releases in the works from both Southern Shores and Wintercoats as well as the debut EP from Swedish trio World Tour which drops next month. Download Southern Shores’ remix below.

Ra Ra Riot - Massachusetts (Kisses Remix)

Ra Ra Riot recently released a super smooth remix of their tune ‘Massachusetts’ crafted by Los Angeles’ Kisses. Slowed down and mellowed out, the duo’s reworking of the track comes just in time, bringing some of Southern California’s sunshine up to Massachusetts through May’s earliest rays. Mighty fine sunshine.

Delorean – Stay Close (RAC Mix)

Andre Anjos, the Portuguese beatmestre behind the Remix Artist Collective (RAC), just released the fourth track off his upcoming remix album, RAC Vol 2, which drops tomorrow. Today’s remix comes by way of one of my favorite Spanish bands, or just bands in general, Barcelona’s Delorean. The remix takes the original dreamy, sun-soaked song and turns the jam into a total dance party, just like when I saw them play in Brooklyn back in November. That show, like this remix, was insane. I don’t know if this remix is gonna make keyboardist Unai Lazcano knock over his synth and dive off the stage (nobody caught him!), but it definitely brings back memories of that sweaty night. Check out the six and a half minute JAM below. I can’t wait to head off to sunny Barcelona on Sunday!

Emay - Ups & Downs [Remix] (feat. Steffaloo)

Canadian producer and emcee Emay dropped his new eight-track EP Mind Altering Dynamics earlier today. His creative approach to hip hop and immense lyrical ability are definitely on show with this one as he pushes beyond his previous releases. His remix of Blackbird Blackbird's 'Ups & Downs' (off BB's Summer Heart) really sticks out of the bunch. Not only does Emay build off of Mikey’s summery jam, but he also got LA’s Steffaloo (Steph Thompson) to record some beautiful backing vocals for the track. Download Mind Altering Dynamics for free from Emay’s website.

Roman Ruins - The Comedown (Galapagos Remix)

A few months ago I saw Beach House play live. Going in I knew that Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally would blow my mind (of course), but I was also quite impressed by the duo’s touring drummer Graham Hill. I was introduced, fittingly enough, to his solo project Roman Ruins through his remix of Beach House’s ‘Lover Of Mine,’ a few weeks later. So tonight when I saw that Phoenix’s Jacob McNaughton (aka Galapagos) finished up another rad remix, this time of Graham’s single ‘The Comedown,’ I knew it’d be dope. Check it.
