Gladiator Has ‘Bad Blood’ With Taylor Swift

Los Angeles-based duo Gladiator (pictured) has finally released their remix of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood, arguably 2015's most ubiquitous hit single. Flipping it to meet festival trap expectations, this track now has legs in the world of EDM, too. ​

In the rework, Early 2000s-style marching band percussion is clipped into half-time breaks to join forces with Swift's tweaked vocals. As well, a warping electro swing provides a searing energy in the mix. In separating the metaphorical wheat from the chaff, this is a peak-hour champion of a track that streamlines the original and proves that while "band aids don't fix bullet holes," turning up just might do the trick. ​

Grab this massive and well-crafted remix here.

Sasha Wants You To ‘Cry No More’ With Vaults’ Remix

When it comes to creating nine-minute epics, few producers truly come close to matching the efforts of Sasha. The UK legend has had a busy year so far, releasing his first original production in four years, plus the follow up, Ether, and now he's back with an official remix of Vaults’ hit song Cry No More.

If you thought that the London trio's chart-topping ballad was touching before, you'll be reaching for the tissues once this one picks up steam. Sasha opens the action with the original's unmistakable bell chimes before adding a soft progressive beat that propels the action onto the dancefloor. The main highlight is still the plaintive and captivating vocals, but somehow Sasha adds even more emotion in this Homeric audial effort.

Pick it up on Beatport here.

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.

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.
