Lorde – Tennis Court (Flume Remix) [Auckland, NZ / Sydney, AU]

Electronic / Synth / Remixes / Indie Pop

We makin’ beautiful music babies.

Australia and New Zealand has met to break the internet. 20K likes and almost 200k plays within 10 hours. Premiered during the second week of Coachella, Sydney’s prodigious electronic producer Flume has taken on the Kiwi legend (and his good mate) Lorde’s second single Tennis Court and boy is it a banger. It does not get more legit than this. It’s almost like he just went ahead and chucked in all the pecussions and synths at his disposal. (Think witch with cauldron + evil cackling). Anyways Lorde’s been recuperating in NZ after postponing her Australian tour so lets hope this insane mix knocks her socks off!

Our only complaint is that Flume doesn’t do enough of them mixes. So don’t miss out!
Check out his soundcloud here and her’s here.
Let’s put our hands together in prayer for a full length album collab between the two.


Daft Punk – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Dillon Francis Remix) [Los Angeles, US]

Electronic / Dance / Funk

Happy Easter all! Hope everyone’s enjoying the festive season and eating your own weights in chocolate, but lets not forget that diabetes is simply not in trend. Maybe next year. And yes, to help you haul that easter egg filled ass onto the treadmill, it’s that track again. As if you don’t own enough edits/samples of this oldie (but a goldie) already. However when Dillon Francis brought this back during Coachella, and by no means was it outdated. Let’s not lie to ourselves, it’s always gonna work. If you’ve got a million versions, this is the one to keep. Yea, Kanye, I said it.

Making it in music editing and photo editing. Some people just have everything.
Being booked two years in a row for Coachella, he’s a rare one.
Scoop up a free download (how generous!) as well as check out his other amazing recent mixes.

Crywolf (Justin Phillips) – Eyes Half Closed [Los Angeles, US]

Dubstep / Electronic / Downtempo 

As feature previously here, he is possibly the most unique dubstep artist you’re going to find out there today. Not to put anything against Sonny Moore (soz. very creative new album btw.) but the genre can sound like more than just robots going to third base. When LA based Crywolf gets weaves together tracks like this, the robots suddenly become Wall-E and the jarring sounds are immediately graceful, melancholic and therapeutical,

Like the track suggests, close your eyes and cue the waterworks. Just all the feels.

The track’s being given out for free here as long as you purchase the upcoming six track EP Angels due release April 29th.

Chromeo – Ezra’s Interlude ft. Ezra Koenig [Montreal, CA]

Acoustic / Ballad

That charm. It’s dangerous.

Every track of White Women leaked so far has been arguably amazing. When Chromeo first announced the collaborators for their new album we were all pretty psyched. With A$AP Ferg and Toro Y Moi already part of the team, we were all secretly hoping for a second collab with Vampire Weekend’s well groomed sweetheart Ezra Koenig. (seriously have you seen his hair? How does One D even exist). Previously they’ve worked together three years back on I Could Be Wrong as part of Business Casual which was just… so right. But that then Ezra took on Chromeo’s style resulting in a rather funky track. This time with this 2 minute interlude, it has taken on a completely Hannah Hunt type piano ballad heart wrenching approach. When it comes to serenading, nobody does it quite like he does.

White Women is due to be released May 12. Keep up here.

Speaking of awesome things that are happening to Chromeo. Dillon Francis, that’s what.

Tourist – Patterns ft. Lianne La Havas [London, UK]

Electronic / House

Not to be confused with Perth based alt-rock band Tourist, we’re talking about the UK based genius who changed the face of this HAIM track. Borrowing Lianne La Havas’s amazing vocals, the UK producer has created a subtle danceable sound that is almost begging to be remixed. The Patterns EP Is due for release on the 20th (today) in the UK via Method Records (Disclosure, Sam Smith) and 22nd via Monday Records in the States. Fans of Disclosure, T.E.E.D, and SBTRKT will dig this.

Get Patterns EP through iTunes here.
