Our Creators are a very talented and prolific bunch, and our inbox is always cluttered 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.
Yuksek: Living On The Edge Of Time album preview
It’s an exciting time for French DJ and producer Yuksek, who just premiered his new live show at our Paris event last week, and dropped his second album Living On The Edge Of Time on June 13th (July 4th in some territories). Fueled from time spent on tour and a conscious decision to channel the solitude and boredom of life on the road into music instead of the many vices available to musicians, Living On The Edge Of Time moves away from the typical dance floor sound and instead flows like a traditional anthology. Yuksek takes on vocals, while he brings in friends and fellow “Reimsters” The Shoes and The Bewitched Hands for support. Check out the “The Edge” above, or hear the album preview here.
This Glasser remix is not technically new, but since Cameron Mesirow (who also performed at our Paris event) is a relatively recent addition to our Creator lineup, we thought that Lindstrøm’s rework of “Mirrorage” was worth sharing. The Oslo-based DJ (who has remixed tracks for LCD Soundsystem and Franz Ferdinand) explains why he chose to remix this particular track: “When I was thinking about which Glasser song I wanted to remix, I quickly fell on “Mirrorage,” which is a fantastic song. Often when I do remixes I add and change a lot of elements, and often add a new beat. In this case, I felt the world deserved to hear an extended Mirrorage-version, and that the core musical elements, and the production, was so strong on it´s own that I didn’t feel for adding too many new musical elements, but rather emphasize the claustrophobic mood of the song.”
New York hip-hop legends, the Beastie Boys, finally released their much anticipated eighth studio album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two on May 3rd, which was delayed in part because band member Adam “MCA” Yauch was diagnosed with cancer. Diplo and Switch, aka Major Lazer, give their second single the reggae-fab moombahton “treatment” with extra spice courtesy of Santigold.
