[PREMIERE] GRiZ – For The Love (Naderi Remix) (Ft. Talib Kweli) : Must Hear Future Bass / Electro SoulPosted in Bangin, Chill, Premieres by nick | Tags: Electro Soul, Future Bass, Griz, naderi, Premiere, Remix
Two weeks ago we featured the exciting new Big Wild remix of the GRiZ single “For the Love”, featuring Talib Kweli. This was the first of a series of remixes from the freshly announced “For The Love Remixes EP”, which is set to release this Friday, August 7th.
Well, today we have the premiere of the newest remix from Naderi, an exciting Australian act that’s been making waves. For those who haven’t been following, Naderi is the producer who’s been working behind the scenes on Flume, What So Not, Carmada, and various other acts. Just recently he has been putting out music under his Naderi project. Last month he released an official remix to Fetty Wap’s radio single “Trap Queen” which he managed to inject with a huge blast of something fresh.
He steps up and completely reconstructs the song from the ground up. He cleverly starts with Talib’s rap verse, right out the gate giving the song a strong vibe. We hear a distorted background mixture of synth melodies, vocal chops and bass growls which continue to build up to an anthem inducing drop which manages to use the vocal sampling as it’s own instrument. To keep things even more interesting he manages to include a completely separate drop for the second part of the song. This is quite an impressive remix that will have you hitting replay before it has a chance to end. Listen below to the premiere and look out for a free download and official release this Friday, August 7th.
Also, just a few days ago GRiZ announced his newest wave of tour dates for this fall (See all the dates below). He has also shared the very exciting details of selling out his first ever headline show at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, over a month in advanced of theSeptember 4th date. Enjoy!

He reworks the infectious original with a funky bass line, swirling synths and extremely clean production all wrapped together as the perfect way to start your week.

[PREMIERE] Jack Ü – Where Are Ü Now (Ember Island Cover) (Flaxo Remix) : Chill Trap / Indie [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Premieres by nick | Tags: Ember Island, Flaxo, Free Download, Jack U, Premiere, Remix
Diplo and Skrillex's collaborative single "Where Are Ü Now" as Jack Ü' also featuring Justin Bieber continues to make waves worldwide letting both artists step into the pop world like never before.
Well today we get to hear an unexpected remix of the song which uses the acoustic cover version of the song from Ember Island as the base. Flaxo, a TSIS regular who's brought us remixes of Bingo Players "Knock You Out" and Yellow Claw's "Shotgun" has stepped up to the plate. He layers in new melodies, exciting percussion elements and a guitar and horn filled drop that make just enough room for Ember Island's vocals to lay on top perfectly. Stream the premiere of the song below and grab a free download. Enjoy!
Here are some words from Flaxo himself on the remix
""I stumbled on this Ember Island cover of the Jack U/Bieber collab Where Are U Now and fell in love instantly. I've been experimenting with some different rhythmic formats and different instrumental styles that incorporated some more organic drumming and basslines with more "synthetic" stuff and when this fell on my lap I thought it made perfect sense to take some of the more uplifting, organic material I had written and put it together with this really vulnerable, personal vocal cut from them. It's intended for moments on a train or a bus where you forget where you are for a sec and you think back to something that happened 5 years ago."
We've also been informed Flaxo has an original EP in the works so be on the lookout.
