Creators Remix Roundup: Birdy Nam Nam, Boys Noize, And Yuksek
Our Creators are a talented and prolific bunch, and our inbox is always overflowing with alerts of new remixes and mashups from the incredible DJs and producers in our line-up. We just couldn’t keep these fresh new tunes to ourselves because, after all, filesharing is caring. Here are our top picks from the past week. For past Creators Remix Roundups, click here.
The DMC championship winning DJ crew Birdy Nam Nam‘s "Goin’ in" gets a buzzsaw remix from Skrillex, whose mark is unmistakable. Sounds like he followed the vocal sample’s advice and said “F**k bein’ polite” when he stripped this one down and turned it into a crunk-to-jungle banger moving at hyperspeed. Wait for the killer drop at 1:10.
Oh Land – “Son of a Gun” (Yuksek Remix)
Yuksek takes the swingy beat of Oh Land’s “Sun of a Gun” and turns it into a pounding club hit with French house written all over it. Slowed down a bit from the original, and with a harder four-to-the-floor beat, this will blend nicely into any house DJ set right around prime time.
Boys Noize – “XTC” (MMM Remix)
This is among the first glimpses of Boys Noize‘s upcoming album Out of the Black, and this remix abandon’s the original track’s B-boy breakbeat rhythm for something a little more rave-centric. It’s hard to ignore the supraliminal suggestion to augment our party experience, but we’re vibing enough off the song to keep rocking without any assistance.
