Louis Futon has had quite the year through a series of viral remixes of the likes of Mos Def, Logic, Future and news of a forthcoming self titled release, Louis Futon EP. We've been getting teased with tracks from the EP including 'Sir Rock' or the Kill Paris remix of 'Silk', and today we get one of the last tracks before the EP's release next month on January 14th as a free download.
This new song "DRNUK" is a step in a more ambient direction than the upbeat stuff we've been hearing, yet staying in the same lane as the Wiz Khalifa remix from earlier this year. This is a song you should enjoy with a proper sound system or headphones as your laptop just won't do it justice. It is an atmospheric journey featuring some amazing chords and very strong drums that will leave you in a trance. The song is completed by the addition of some heavily effected from Drake and P. Reign's “DNF” lightly thrown in the mix.
We also have the news that Logan Zoghby has left Louis Futon, leaving Tyler Minford to take reigns as a solo act (pictured below). Tyler has let us know that there are some exciting 2015 tour plans he will be announcing in the near future.

Today we have the latest from Pomo, the exciting producer out of Montreal, who is apart of the HW&W Records family (Kaytranada, Sweater Beats, Ta-Ku and more). We get our ears on one of his most impressive tracks all year, remixing UK duo AlunaGeorge's single "Supernatural". Drawing drum inspiration from label mate Kaytra and fusing these beats with a beefy bassline and catchy melodies we are left with an instant hit. Drawing influences of nu-disco, hip-hop, future bass and more it's impossible to comfortably throw this one in just one genre, which is what Pomo loves. This is stream only until the official release comes out along with the other remixes of the song. Enjoy!

Chilly weather is spreading in most parts of the country, but that's not stopping California based producers Tropicool and Peitzke from turning up the heat with their latest original track, "Cat Call." 2014 has been a huge year for "tropical" sounding music and it doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. “Cat Call” is a chilled out tune that gives off a sexy, somewhat throw-back vibe. The best description for it is to picture yourself cruising down the boulevard in 1970’s Miami. You won’t be able to listen to this tune just once, it's that addicting. Stream the track below and make sure you grab the free download. Enjoy!

A few weeks back we heard a unexpected pairing of 2pac and Banks for “Thugz Drowning” perfectly mixed by Carlos Serrano. Today he is back with another unique mashup.
In this new track we have overnight star Sam Smith and his song “I’m Not The Only One” providing the instrumental and vocal setting for Kanye West’s notable lyrics on “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” for the perfect contrast. The combination ends up working surprisingly well leaving you wondering why the two artists haven’t collaborated on something yet. Listen below and grab a free download thanks to Carlos. Enjoy!
French indie act Phoenix's classic song "Lisztomania" is still one of our favorite tunes of the last few years and just received quite an impressive – officially approved – remix from a fresh new production team. Parrad, a duo from France and Belgium (members of groups you are very familiar with) have just flipped the classic upside down. We hear a future bass styling similar to Flume and fellow On & On Records label-mate 20syl, yet with a very effective and dark twist.
We are excited to have the world premiere of this remix complete with download aa part of our 12 Days Of Free Downloads celebration to honor the return of our Soundcloud from it's brief hiatus. Enjoy!

Influential electronic duo ODESZA continue to cement themselves as one of the most exciting acts to emerge this year. Their full production talents were recently displayed on the debut studio album In Return that, on top of going #1 on iTunes, we called one of the best albums of the year.

ODESZA delivers their signature-reworking full of infectious melodies and synths layered with trap inspired drums. The song's original vocals manage to shine bright for a track that will hypnotize you till the very end. This is one of our favorite remixes from ODESZA we've heard all year, it is up there with the group's remix of Zhu's "Faded" or Pretty Lights' "Lost and Found".

Lido has become one of the most in demand artists in the world of electronic music right now; turning heads with his Money EP and countless remixes. Today he has stepped outside of his heavily bass-influenced production to deliver a very special remix of Flight Facilities' new single “Two Bodies”. Breaking the song down to it’s core, Lido left just the vocals of the original track in tact and laid down a chilling piano line. Surprisingly, the entire remix is very minimal; only including a few small sections of the electronic style he is known for. It’s a bold move releasing something so different and really shows a different side of the talented producer. Enjoy!

A producer we haven't featured close to enough is the impressive German producer WKND who has a chilled out easy going style we can't get enough of. Today we have his remix of Chet Faker's cover of Sonia Dada's "Lover" that surfaced a couple weeks back which snuck through our radar. He layers in some tropical house styling with some smooth new drums while managing to highlight the original's guitar and vocals perfectly. This will be the perfect song to hold on to the last bit of the warm weather for part of the world starting to get cold. WKND has been nice enough to pass this out as a free download. Enjoy!
