The HW&W collective has birthed an eclectic group of successful producers ranging from Kaytranada to Ta-Ku to Sweater Beats and more, and now Pomo is climbing the ranks as a talented producer on this already great label. This up and coming Montreal based producer was featured recently on TSIS for his glorious remix of Alunageorge’s “Supernatural,” and continues to impress us with every track.
His latest remix takes on “Fantasy” by Alina Baraz & Galimatias, and brings a fresh spin on the track by reworking the original melodic downtempo beat with amazing new percussion, upbeat synths and a fresh bassline to bring a new dance-ready energy to this sensual tune. We hope you enjoy listening to this tune as much as Pomo did creating it as he says it was “such a pleasure working with Galimatias & Alina Baraz. I have been a fan of what they have been doing for a long time so when Galimatias asked me to remix one of the tracks for their EP i was super excited. Alina's vocal is so smooth and just super inspiring to remix." Enjoy!

Undeniably one of the biggest tracks off the recent Jack Ü album was Where Are Ü Now featuring Justin Bieber. New York City based Nu-Disco masters The Knocks released part three of their Summer Bootleg Series today choosing to remix the ever-popular track.

Fusing their signature nu-disco melodies with layers of wind instruments and other subtle samples combined with the smooth Bieber vocals, this remix really becomes something special. No sign of a release date or download but enjoy the stream below.

It’s been five months since we last got a taste of new Disclosure when they released their collaboration with Mary J. Blige. Hard At Work on their next album, today the boys took some time to premiere a brand new track on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show titled “Bang That”. Using a sample from 313 Bass Mechanic’s “Pass Out”, "Bang That" has a slightly more minimal tech house feel to it than what they usually release, something you’d hear them play at an early morning after party somewhere. Note that this is not an official single off the new album, but something to hold everyone over as we keep waiting for their follow up to their previous album Settle. Stream the record below or purchase on iTunes later today
