In this column, I cover songs for you to nod your head to in the EDM scene [electronic dance music, not extra dancey music, for those not in the know].
Sam Smith “Nirvana (Until The Ribbon Breaks Reimagination)”
A brilliant remix that improves on the soul-infused pop of the original–hard to describe this one but it has some serious future bass leanings.
Wu-Tang Clan “C.R.E.A.M. (Phoniks Remix)”
A funky, jaunty remix of the classic Wu joint.
Submotion Orchestra “All Yours (Freddie Joachim Remix)”
An impossibly beautiful remix of the already lush original by London dub-soul outfit Submotion Orchestra.
Postiljonen “Supreme (Niva Remix)”
A toe-tapping, dancing-feet-stirring remix of the sweeping original by Postiljonen.
Comme feat. Chester Watson “Tin Trees”
Rap’s answer to Bowie? Something like that. The self-proclaimed “shogun of the 4th dimension” 16-year-old MC Chester Watson recently dropped the all-instrumental, self-produced Space Nobility EP.
