Friday Favorites 124

What an incredible thing, Burning Man, this collective of people gathered together to express themselves in ways they normally only do at home, in parks, and on sidewalks on a daily basis. Vacations tho. It must feel really nice to get that much-needed break, huh? An entire week off from talking about Burning Man to everyone around you. But who can blame you? Everyone knows that it's something you walk away from with a unique feeling: that there is nothing at all in life that you currently need more, at this very moment, than a shower. It's Friday Favorites 124.

Jungle Terror | Angger Dimas - Jungle Juiz (Original Mix)
Angger Dimas was producing jungle terror before anyone was even calling it jungle terror, so I hereby am declaring him the "Jungle Terror OG." In his latest, Jungle Juiz, the Indonesian DJ/producer takes a more minimal approach to the genre, but it's not any less bangin'. Stay tuned for the second drop, whose rhythms draw influence from traditional gamelan music.

House | Sean Finn & Chris Willis - So Good (TKDJS Remix) [Selfie]
Throwin' it back almost as far as one can in the brief, blooming career of rising Brooklyn house duo TKDJS to their May remix of Sean Finn and Chris Willis' soulful house bomb So Good--does exactly what it says on the tin. Get more TKDJS love on Basement Jaxx, Blonde, and more on their SoundCloud page, and pick up the Finn remix here.

House | Dominica - Gotta Let You Go (Bicep Edit)
OK, so maybe I’m a little late with this one, and depending on how you define it, it’s either by a few weeks or 21 years. Dominica’s Gotta Let You Go originally came out in 1994, but has recently been given a subtle once-over by Bicep, who've been hammering this track in their sets all summer. I heard this on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show just this week, and have had it on repeat ever since. There’s no info on when this edit will get a release, if ever, but it’s a great reminder of how timeless house music is that this sounds so fresh all these years later.

Deep House | HUGEL feat. Jimmy Hennessy - Coming Home (Oliver Moldan Remix)
I have to be honest--the tropical/melodic house sound that was once new and unique is becoming a bit monotonous and overdone, especially if you're like me and you spend half your waking hours on SoundCloud. That's why it was such a breath of fresh air when I came across this track in my newsfeed. German producer and international DJ Oliver Moldan has injected a satisfying bass kick to HUGEL's Coming Home, upgrading it to a surprisingly addictive blend of deep, tropical, and melodic house. Stay tuned for official release details via promotional label & PR agency Melodic House.

Nu Disco | Kazy Lambist - On You (Moi Je Remix) [Opening Light]
French producer Moi Je appeared on my radar about a year ago with his funky, Brandy-sampled track Protéine, and I have kept a close eye on him ever since. His latest remix of Kazy Lambist’s On You delivers that same funk mentality with low-slung guitar lines and pairs it with a breezy nu disco flavor that seems like a sunset ode to the summer season. You can hear more from Moi Je at his SoundCloud here.

Trap | Brewski - Niykee Heaton (Original Mix)
In news that should surprise absolutely nobody, rap-meets-EDM bad boys over at Buygore
have signed viral trap hit Niykee Heaton from Chicago rapper Brewski, who claims to be "the white Chief Keef." Based on the hook of "the second I get famous I'ma f*** Niykee Heaton," one can tell what the deal is here. If unaware, Heaton is a South African-born rising pop/soul vocalist as known for her singing ability as she is for her pulchritudinous Instagram photos. Laredo, Texas' Superstaar Beats is on production here, and this is a swirling and booming 808-driven banger that's meant for the most absurd, turnt up and raucous of behaviors. Download this one for free here.

Hot Chip Remixes Florence + The Machine’s ‘Queen Of Peace’

Hot Chip (pictured) delivers Florence + The Machine's Queen Of Peace straight to the dancefloor with a energetic house remix filled with squelching synth work.

As a perfect snapshot of both groups' styles, the remix focuses on lead singer Florence Welch's powerful vocals while a driving four-on-the-floor rhythm keeps time against Hot Chip's rumbling synths. Nonchalant chords introduce an interlude at the midway point while background singers soulfully croon a few choice lyrics before the beat kicks back in for a dance-worthy finish.

There is no word yet as to the remix's official release, but you can listen to the track above, and hear more from Hot Chip at their website here.

2X PREMIERE: Lange + Soundprank – ‘Unified Vol. 3′ [Zerothree]

We love a bit of both Lange (pictured, left) and Soundprank here at LessThan3, so you can imagine how excited we are to exclusively unveil their new EP, Unified Vol. 3, a double-header set to be released on Zerothree.

Lange sets the tone. The British trance veteran opens proceedings with You Are Free, a stomping tech trancer that has some nostalgia-tinged piano chords, a brutal bassline, and plenty of feel-good energy. It's a nice cross between big room, uplifting, and progressive trance that should be popular among a range of DJs and will be a sure-fire dancefloor destroyer. On the flipside, Soundprank dishes up Largo and once again proves why he's one of the most sought-after names on the scene. There's a taste of his previous work, from the gritty synth riffs to the delicate piano motifs, before an atmospheric, film score-esque break builds into a fantastic proggy drop. It's another top effort from the Soundprank name and one that should leave you smiling from ear to ear.

The Unified Vol. 3 EP is out on Sept. 7, so keep your ears peeled for what promises to be an utterly enormous release.

Kygo Releases A Double Dose Of Tropical House With Remix And New Single ‘Here For You’

Closely following his a-ha remix, tropical house boss Kygo checks in with a double dose of tracks--a blissful remix and a new original production--and still proves that he's at the forefront of the rising mainstream subgenre.

A metronome-style clockwork tick sets the folk pop-meets-dance groove of the remix for Of Monsters & Men's year old single Dirty Paws. The top-line vocals actually don't sit on top of the mix, but rather they're weaved through the track.

Here For You was first premiered as the Ultra Music Festival 2015 anthem, and is a piano house ballad that slinks its way into being a relaxed, percussion-driven jam. Ella Henderson's vocals are seductive and add to the track's general overall vibe.

Stream both tracks above, and purchase Here For You from Beatport here.
