Flume Drops New Collarbones Remix, ‘Turning’

Still riding high on the success of his latest original, Some Minds, Flume (pictured) delivers a new remix of fellow Aussie group Collarbones' track Turning.

Flume dials up the bass and takes out the echoed vocals of the original, but he leaves the main chorus intact to flavor the tune with his iconic yet unconventional sound. About midway through the track he adds a string of effects against a massive synth line that sound uncannily like fireworks bursting.

After teasing the track in many of his sets, fans can finally put a name to the tune and the group that he's remixed. Little is known about the Collarbones past the fact that they share the same Sydney hometown as Flume, but we'll wager they'll be on many music buff's radars after this.

While there is no release date yet, you can hear Flume drop this while on tour. Check out the full list of remaining dates at his Facebook here.

Dive Into The Deep 43: Curated By Till Von Sein

German DJ/producer Till Von Sein isn't your typical electronic music performer. He doubles as a booking agent in Berlin for Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, Fritz Kalkbrenner, and Nick Monaco, among others, which means he has quite the insight as to what it takes to have a long-lasting career in electronic music--as well as impeccable taste in music.

Till recently released his second full-length album, Precious, on Suol Records, which you can pick up here. He is also days away from embarking on his first North American tour, kicking off with an Independence Day performance for acclaimed LA party series A Club Called Rhonda at Mondrian LA.

Want to know what to expect to hear on this tour? Check out Till's favorite tracks of the moment below, as well as his own words on why he fancies them so much as part of our Dive Into The Deep series.


Adam Port - E-Sound Edit (Original Mix) [Keinemusik]
I’ve been playing this track for six months now, and still get a smile on my face every time I drop it. This is a beautiful edit by Adam--one for the sunny places out there. I’m in love with this eccentric rhythm.
PURCHASE

Nick Monaco feat. Brandon Cain - Ancient Ritual (Lele Sacchi Remix) [Soul Clap]
When the first break kicks in--wow! Nick´s voice teamed up with the atmosphere Lele creates equals magic. At first I was skeptical about the other breaks--to me it felt like less would be more. But after playing it out, I loved it even more. Go nick!
PURCHASE

Detroit Swindle - Figure Of Speech (Original Mix) [Freerange]
This is the perfect Tilly jam club tool. It’s got a solid groove and an amazing summertime vibe--the kind of track I can play for a year or so. Best work by D. Swizzy so far.
PURCHASE

Bicep - Celeste (Original Mix) [Aus]
This track is a dreamy Balearic jam for the early morning hours or those open-air feelings. Can artists please produce more music like this and send it to me? The world would be a better place.
PURCHASE

Snoop Dogg - This City [Columbia]
Yes, the D-O-Double-G. this is my favorite jam right now. It has feel-good summertime vibes for days, and is the kind of track you’ll find me driving in the car next to you, singing aloud and acting a fool. In the right club at the right time, this works wonders.
PURCHASE

MIX OF THE WEEK: Catz N Dogz - Thump On Deck Mix
This is not that kind of mix you expect from Polish duo Catz n Dogz. 120 minutes of Rap and dope beats--you can tell how much time they must have spent putting this together.

Crystal Castles Share ‘Deicide,’ 2nd With New Vocalist

Crystal Castles share their second original Deicide, made with new vocalist Edith, since former front-woman Alice Glass parted ways with the group last year.

After announcing the split back in October of 2014, producer Ethan Kath (pictured) has kept the Crystal Castles project alive with help from a mysterious new vocalist simply going by Edith. Frail, the first release without Glass, maintained the heavily distorted vocals that the band has become synonymous for, which lead some to believe that it was the last production to feature Glass. It was later revealed that Edith sang on Frail, and she now lends her vocals to their newest output Deicide.

It is a driving production that features Edith's warped vocals set against screeching chord progressions and a medley of lo-fi effects. Both Frail and Deicide stay true to the sound and experimental tendencies of Crystal Castles, showing that Kath has not lost his edge since the split.

No word yet as to whether Kath plans to tour, or release a new album, but you can hear more tunes from Crystal Castles' SoundCloud here.

The Beatport Box 60

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Pep & Rash pep up Alesso's Sweet Escape, Alex Niggemann shows us all how to techno (again), Daniel Dubb drops a masterpiece of an album, and more.


Deep/Tech/Indie | Daniel Dubb - Pieces Of The Past LP [Rejected]
Here we find Daniel Dubb lending his hand to the long player format on Joris Voorn’s Rejected label and doing so in fine form. The tracks on Pieces Of The Past have a definite story arc to them--a trait many electronic albums miss. From the funk samples to the swingin’ garage beats, it manages to sound varied and coherent at the same time. Grab it here.
Techno | Coyu - Apparition EP [Noir]
Difficult to fit into a specific category, Apparition perfectly displays Coyu's diversity in the studio. Deep, grooving tech house rhythms are accented by Marissa Guzman's featherlight vocals to create a delicate bounce inspired by the producer's early club visits in Barcelona. A true throwback tribute to house and techno right here. Pick up the whole release (including an acapella) here.
Techno | Alex Niggemann - Stellar EP [Aeon]
Alex Niggemann effortlessly captures darkness and melancholic beauty in each of his releases and his latest, Stellar through his own Aeon imprint. is no different. Teasing, tension-building energy combine with driving drumlines to create a release that mirrors the style of his peak-hour DJ sets. Get the full release here.
House | My Digital Enemy - Make It Thrоugh (Original Mix) [Zulu]
Off the back of releases on Toolroom, Size Records' sister label X, and Spinnin' Deep, duo My Digital Enemy are back with a soulful, tribal-tinged house record called Make It Through. Toss this one into a tropical set to switch up the sound without completely changing the mood. Purchase here.
House | Alesso - Sweet Escape (Pep & Rash Remix) [Refune]
Pep & Rash follow up on the success of Red Roses with a take on Alesso's Sweet Escape that manages to take the current "in" sound of "Heldens house" and switch it up just enough to sound like its own track, rather than just another copycat. The progressive breakdowns further add to the distinctness of the remix. Download here.

PREMIERE: Mendoza – Houdini (S-Man Remix) [Love & Other]

Veteran house producer Roger Sanchez, aka S-Man, has just retooled Mendoza's standout track Houdini, and LessThan3 has the official premiere ahead of its worldwide release on July 6 on burgeoning imprint Love & Other.

Mendoza's original mix debuted late last year, delivering early '90s hip-house vibes with Mendoza's sexy R&B vocal, piano stabs, and a thumping bassline. S-Man's treatment takes the original in a deeper direction, keeping a strict four-on-the-floor cadence suitable for extended dancefloor activity while keeping Mendoza's sugary vocal fully intact. The remix features a growling bassline subdued under a taut filter and glimmering string sequences for a truly mental experience .

S-Man's remix of Houdini will be available alongside a stunning remix from Steve Lawler exclusively through Beatport on July 6.
