One of the exciting things about breakout act ODESZA, outside of their genre crashing productions and highly engaging live shows, is they have an unbelievable ear for getting some of the most diverse remixes of their own songs. What I have today proves exactly that with this remix of their song “Bloom” from established German deep house producer Lane 8. The pairing of the two artists' styles couldn’t have worked out better; leaving us with a more sped up, DJ friendly version of the song that you will have a hard time being able to stop replaying. This will be getting an unexpected release on Anjunadeep on February 9th.

French producer Klingande really made a global name for himself in 2014 thanks to his extra smooth breakout single "Jubel," which laid the groundwork for defining his sax-fueled deep house sound. This exciting new producer continued to solidify the buzz with a string of followup remixes and live shows across the globe. Today we have Klingande's first offering of 2015 with an impressive new remix, taking on UK artist Alex Adair's song "Make Me Feel Better". There is no sax on this track, but a new guitar riff shines nicely alongside the keys of the original. The song has a different, more progressive sound than we've heard before from him, which has me even more excited for what else he has planned for this year. Enjoy!
