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. Stream the full song below and you can now pick up on iTunes through Mad Decent. 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.
Mr. Carmack and GANZ joined forces to deliver an extremely impressive rendition to the track full of chops, new synths and added drums for a gritty high energy ride. Enjoy!

When experimental low-end aficionado Bassnectar throws his production weight into a remix, the outcome can spark a wave of activity in and outside of dance music’s maturing community. The talented visionary has an unique knack for drawing connections to past genre’s while breaking ground across the bass spectrum, and this remix is no exception. Bassnectar casts an inventive spell over Dubstep pioneer Joker's track "Midnight" by placing dreamy guitar riffs, frenzied kick and snare elements, and deep scoops of melodic bass into the original.
This saw a release in Europe a few months ago along with a Rustie remix but we are happy see it finally be released in the US. You can now pick up on iTunes and stream the full song below. Enjoy!

Listen below and pick up the remix EP on January 27th on iTunes thanks to Mad Decent. Enjoy!

[TSIS PREMIERE] Caribou – Can’t Do Without You (Tommy Trash Remix) : Melodic Electro House [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Premieres by nick | Tags: Caribou, Electro, Free Download, Premiere, Remix, Tommy Trash
LA based DJ and producer Tommy Trash starts the new year off on a proper note by releasing a new song as a free download. He's taken on indie artist Caribou's song "Can't Do Without You" and has given it a smooth refresh. He steps in a more melodic, soft direction than his typical high energy party starters, which fits the track perfectly. See what Tommy had to say about the remix below.
"For those of you who don't know Caribou, go check his music out immediately. He's one of my favourite producers, consistently making beautiful, emotive and intricate music. For those of you who do know him I'm sure you're loving his incredible new album Our Love as much as I am. So many great tracks on there but Can't Do Without You has been totally stuck in my since first hearing it back in June last year. My mix is an ode to the original, taking it into a different space from the original. I wanted to keep the mix fairly gentle, including a lot of the really special original elements, particularly his vocal, while giving it my personal stamp. I hope people enjoy it as much as I did making it. Go check out Caribou's album if you haven’t already."
Listen and grab the song below for free download. Enjoy!

Two of bass music's finest have paired up for quite the free gift to bring in the year with. The well seasoned trap connoisseur Brillz has linked up with booming newcomer SNAILS after the two of them were on the near sold-out TWONKAHOLICS Tour tour which tore through the states over the past few months.
They have chosen to remix Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie for a collaborative effort, taking on his song "Crazy", and completely flipping it upside down. They layer in a brutal mixture of trap and bass elements for a hybrid you can't quite fit into a box. Both artists' signature styles shine through brightly for a song that won't let you catch your breathe till the end. This track has a recipe to be an anthem for this coming festival season with an endless number of DJs. Both artists love their fans so much they are passing this out as a free download, so grab a copy, listen below, and enjoy!

Madeon Is Set To Have Bastille, Passion Pit, and Foster The People On New Album + Releases Gramatik Remix of “You’re On”Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Gramatik, Madeon, Remix
French music prodigy Madeon has revealed some juicy details to Billboard about his much anticipated debut studio album titled Adventure. The album has been many years in the making and is set to release March 30th.
According to Billboard, the producer took the beginning of 2014 off from touring for studio sessions with some exciting new collaborators; including the likes of Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Foster The People’s Mark Foster, and Bastille’s Dan Smith. Working with all these amazing singer / songwriters is a step towards creating the original sound Madeon has always wanted to.
This is what the young producer had to say about his distaste with being labeled as “EDM”:
"I don't feel very related to [the EDM] scene, I just don't care that much to be honest," he says. "I don't listen to dance releases. And I mean 'dance' in the sense of this narrow, specific brand of dance music. I guess at a point I felt maybe more excited by it, and it wasn't a conscious effort to get away from it, but I never liked 'EDM'. I was just doing my thing, and suddenly the world just slaps something on you and you go, 'OK.' I just want to be able to do my thing.”
On top of all this news we have an exciting new remix of Madeon’s lead single “You’re On” by the Slovenian electro-soul producer Gramatik. He works his signature funky soul filled sound full of added guitar sections and flawless sampling. Enjoy!
