ODESZA Remixes Emancipator’s ‘Eve II’

Seattle-based duo ODESZA's (pictured) latest release is a remix of Eve II, a single from trip hop producer Emancipator's 2013 album From Dusk To Dawn. ​

The original version of Eve II has breaks like a trap anthem yet sways like a soul ballad. The remix, on the other hand, has a four-on-the-floor groove on the bottom end that blends well with the original's ambient atmosphere on top. With it's smooth and silky vibe, this one deserves more than a few spins to take a deep house night late into the evening. ​

The full remix EP for From Dusk To Dawn drops on July 10. Grab this remix beforehand here.

Jeremy Olander Remixes Dosem’s ‘Runnerpark’ Into A Progressive Masterpiece

Swedish progressive house powerhouse Jeremy Olander (pictured) takes on Dosem's Runnerpark in his latest remix, and to the surprise of no one who has witnessed his meteoric rise to the top of the genre, the track is nothing short of majestic.

Fans were first introduced to this gem during the closing moments of Jeremy's Suara podcast in late April, and then again during his incredible set inside a defunct Swedish bomb shelter. Soft and serene yet highly euphoric and cathartic, his Runnerpark remix is the perfect closing song to end a night and send dance music fans home with smiles on their faces. If you're looking for a fantastic feel-good song of the summer, you might as well stop looking, because Jeremy Olander's remix of Dosem's Runnerpark is all you need.

Pick it up on Beatport here as part of Dosem's City Cuts Remixes Part 2 EP via Suara.

Sound Atlas 14

Welcome to Sound Atlas, a weekly series showcasing LessThan3's desire to scan the world for the most exciting sounds in global electronic music. This week, we offer you a grip of world-spanning productions that offer up possibly the funkiest edition in the series to date. ​

Ricky Vaughn feat. Otis Clapp - I Don't Want To Be Saved
New York City-based OG moombahtonista Ricky Vaughn has extended his excellence as a producer in the sound past his days in Sazon Booya and is still a formidable name in the re-emergent genre. His latest production featuring emcee Otis Clapp showcases what makes him arguably an underground legend. For as much as this track incorporates moombahton's Latin sound that involves sweeping dembow, there's a hip hop swagger in the drums and gospel house feels in the vocal, too. The track includes little bits of everything that we love about successful pop and dance music from the Big Apple over the past 40 years. Grab this one here. ​

A Tribe Called Red feat. Buffy Sainte-Marie - Working For The Government (2015 Mix)
Quietly, Ottawa, Canada's A Tribe Called Red is motoring along, proving to be both a successful touring act and politically relevant while mortgaging none of their progressive political voice. Similar to A Tribe Called Red, Canadian Cree Indian folk vocalist Buffy Sainte-Marie has dedicated much of her 50-year career as a musician advocating for Native/Indigenous rights. Thus, the Native EDM trio A Tribe Called Red going full scale "Electric Pow Wow" on Sainte-Marie's 2008 single Working For The Government is a big deal. This one is a massive banger as tom tom drums are pushed to the forefront and a message is caught up in the melody. Download this track here. ​

Disclosure feat. Gregory Porter - Holding On (Melé Remix)
The idea of throwing Disclosure and Gregory Porter's Chicago house ode Holding On over a sweep of Brazilian batucada drums is a stroke of genius from progressive and club-minded producer Melé. This one is a funky thumper and one of the best tracks to showcase the developing global-bass meets disco house sound. Hearing some of Jamie xx's album getting the same treatment would elevate this concept to another level. No download information here, so could this get an official release? Let's hope so. ​

Daniel Haaksman feat. Bulldozer - Sabado (Aero Manyelo Remix)
If looking for a full-scale global house party, check out South African "township house" producer Aero Manyelo's remix of Berlin-based Haaksman's single Sabado. South Africa is seemingly creating a plethora of genres by the second these days, however, the track's elastic bassline and folky guitar are understood by most any fan interested in getting into a heavy groove on a Saturday night. The plaintive melody lays on a bed of breezing funk that defines the best of South African house at the current moment. Download this track here. ​

SoktaKuri - Camino A San Jeronimo
Lima, Peru's SoktaKuri describes himself as an ethnomusicologist making psycho-tropical neo-folk edits. If all of those terms mean nothing to you, just understand that his recently released track Camino A San Geronimo sounds like what would happen if you threw South American folk vocals over a slowed, backpack-era Kanye West production. He blends soulful melodies with basslines that aren't going to blow out the speakers but definitely inspire anyone to get on the dancefloor. Take a listen and download this production here or as part of Rock Achorao's new Peruvian rock compilation.
