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!

Now this duo has come back with an extremely pleasant remix of "You’re On”, the lead single off Madeon’s debut album releasing in March. This talented duo left Kyan’s vocals intact while recreating the song including a smooth baseline along with upbeat disco style synths and even a sexy saxophone lick to round out this funky remix.

Over the past year Skrillex has been playing the 80's band Toto's iconic hit "Africa" during his sets, Inspired by his Australian friends What So Not. The track added a flashback to a timeless classic and a nice change of pace during both artists' high energy sets.

This should lead to some very interesting things given the polar opposite differences in their musical styles. We are looking forward to seeing what they both cooked up. Here's Toto's facebook status and more in depth thoughts about working with the producers below.
Here is what Toto had to say about Skrillex being such a nice guy to work with and how working with What So Not was a meeting of 2 generations.
"It is VERY melodic and Joe and I sang and the band is very cool and Skrillex is a very nice guy and very creative as are the team "What So Not' It was a 'love fest' right away and we created something from a germ of an idea they had and it was a meeting of 2 generations.. NEVER would have thought it worked.. they called US and we went and ended up writing and recording a VERY cool piece. It will be interesting to see what they do with this. I love a new fresh challenge. We all walked away happy on both sides. Great experiment that worked. Dont worry.. Toto is NOT going dubstep haha It was fun session and we made some new friends."
