This was one of the highlights at Field Day over the past weekend, with Disclosure absolutely stealing the show. Toro y Moi‘s take on it is a typically chill affair. Check it out. Settle is out June 3, it’s their Summer for the taking.
18 year old producer Dream Koala has followed-up his mesmerising January release, Ocean, with a remix of Angel Haze’s Werkin’ Girls. While the original version was an absolutely ferocious track with Angel Haze in a particularly aggressive mood spitting out bar after bar at breakneck speed, Koala’s version is a far more ambient and touching… Read more »
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich (Atoms For Peace) have offered up their take on Four Tet’s Pyramid, and it sounds absolutely fucking incredible. What they’ve done is stretch the track into eight minutes in total, using a series of rippling beats surrounded by some varied techno/ambient soundscapes. Keeping Pyramid’s original foundation, they’ve added quite a lot more techno/electronic styles to… Read more »
Yesterday, as part of the annual Record Store Day celebration, Nicolas Jaar dropped a new 12″ remixing Grizzly Bear’s Sleeping Ute and Brian Eno’s Lux.

You know the drill, artist releases original track, Hemsworth picks it up, remixes it and makes it ten times better. Same story here, although it would be nice to hear the full… Read more »
Back in January, Young Galaxy released one of the best tracks of the year with their excellent single Pretty Boy. It’s been giving a remix by Wisconsin duo Peaking lights, and while I’m not usually that big into remixes, I’m certainly feeling this one. The original tune was a swirling, synth heavy pop number that… Read more »
One listen to Ryan Hemsworth‘s stunning remix of Rhye‘s sultry 2012 release Open and I guarantee anything else you play today is a step down. This is just perfect.
Hudson Mohawke has remixed London duo Disclosure’s latest single White Noise, featuring AlunaGeorge. White Noise was already one of my favourite tracks of 2013 thus far, yet it’s nice to hear HudMo adding his own vibe to it.
Ryan Hemsworth‘s ability to re-work pretty much anything and make it his own makes him a massive Silver Soundz favourite. This time he’s teamed up with Angel Haze to produce a really smooth remix of ‘Manhattan’ by Cat Power. The added synth’s sound just gorgeous over Chan Marshall’s smokey vocals and Angel Haze‘s opening verse… Read more »
