Earlier this year bass heavyweights Kill the Noise and Feed Me teamed up for the exciting "Far Away" which not only blended their styles perfectly, but became quite a regularly played anthem. Now some official remixes have begun rolling out and we have the premier of TSIS regular Habstrakt's flip of the song. He tears the song down to it's core and builds it up as a brutal, hard hitting, bass-heavy future house anthem, that is ready to be heard all summer long. Listen to the premiere of the song below and grab a copy of it through Slow Roast Records on August July 31st. You can also check out the behind the scenes video on the making of "Far Away" below and pick up a limited 1 of 100 "Far Away" pin on the interactive page here. Enjoy!
Here's some words from Kill the Noise on it:
"Far Away is a song that Feed Me and I put out earlier this year. It is the biggest collaborative project I think I've ever been a part of! ….Carrying on the collaborative spirit of the record we got our very talented friends Habstrakt and MUST DIE! on the remixes! These guys nailed it, so stoked to have them a part of the Far Away world!”
Future Classic’s Hayden James is one of the label’s smoothest artists that has flown under the radar on many of his releases, but his infectious original “Something About You” has gained a lot of attention since its release. Now the Odesza guys have given the track their magical touch on this unbelievably slick remix that shows off their dynamic sound. The vocals of the original are highlighted as melodic keys build up to slashing synths and mesmerizing glitched vocal samples that bring together this mellow, irresistible remix in their signature melodic future bass style.
UK based house duo Disclosure broke out in 2012 with their single "Latch" featuring at the time unknown fellow UK artist Sam Smith on vocals. Fast forward to today and Sam Smith has 4 Grammy awards and has sold 4 million copies of his In The Lonely Hour album and shows know signs of slowing down. Well as Disclosure approaches the release of their sophomore album Caracal set for a September 25th release, already seeing single "Holding On" Ft. Gregory Porter, and also the change up unexpected non album single "Bang That", the buzz couldn't be higher.
Well today we get our ears on the full version of the long awaited return collaboration "Omen" featuring both artists. The song has a much more downtempo vibe to it than the anthemic radio ready "Latch". It'd be hard to not imagine hearing this everywhere for the rest of the year and more, yet it's definitely not quite the followup to "Latch" anyone was expecting. Enjoy!
FKJ is on a roll as of late with his new original “Drops” and an infectious remix of Lianne La Havas’ “Unstoppable,” and he has a new one for us today off his label, Roche Musique’s .Wave compilation.

Keep an eye on this label and keep an eye out the whole compilation due on 8/21 as Roche Musique is responsible for some of the smoothest sounds out there.
