Newcomer producer Jauz has quickly become one of the most exciting acts to watch out for in 2015 thanks to his non stop flow of unreal remixes and originals. Today he has done it once more, by taking the reigns of Tiga's dark club song "Bugatti" that saw the Boys Noize "Acid" remix last week. The LA producer has taken the Pusha T featured variation of the techno hit and given it his future house treatment full of his signature bass wobbles. The remix is so different, yet could appeal to all varieties of electronic fans. This should be a pretty huge release for Jauz.

UK producer Feed Me made quite the comeback in 2014.

Feed Me recently revealed that he has a brand new EP on the horizon titled A Giant Warrior Descends on Tokyo and today we hear the first single titled "Wuzzle". The song is a powerful electro heater with jungle inspired percussion and Feed Me's signature brutal growls throughout, leaving us with the perfect future festival anthem.

Electro-funk soul brother GRiZ recently released his first new original song since his Rebel Era album, after working over a year on his newest full album. The first track "A Fine Way to Die" gave us a sample of what's to come. Today we get the new album's title, Say It Loud with a March release, as a free download through his newly reformed All Good Records.
We also get the second song from the album, "Stop Trippin'", featuring guest vocals from iDA HAWK showing another glimpse of what this album has in store. With no samples, and all original recorded funk and soul instruments and vocals, GRiZ takes his sound into new territory paving the way for iDA HAWK's vocals to shine strong. This might be one of my favorite songs I've ever heard from GRiZ as he blends the live and organic elements with his signature gritty electronic edge like never before… and not to mention those unreal sax fueled drops. This song is stream only until the free release of the Say It Loud album.
To make this release even more massive, GRiZ has also just announced his first run of shows for 2015 with a fitting Say It Loud World Tour that will be hitting all over the US in coming months. Check out "Stop Trippin'" and see dates for the upcoming tour below.

Kaytanada hops back in the studio with Chicago's Vic Mensa to deliver a follow up collaboration to their previous loosely released song "Wimme Nah".

You can now pick this up as a single on iTunes. Enjoy!

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!

Fool’s Gold’s Oliver is a duo you need to be watching out for in 2015; and today we have another example that proves just that. This duo comprised of California’s Oligee and Vancouver based U-Tern released an incredibly fresh Mechanical EP last year, and have been responsible for some of the funkiest disco inspired tunes we have ever heard. 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. Enjoy!

Last year, Cashmere Cat provided his signature touch of cool helping produce “Party Girls” by Ludacris featuring Jeremih and Wiz. The track was a crossover smash and has just been crying to get a proper remix, and today Mr. Carmack and GANZ have done exactly that.
