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!

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.

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!
