Saint Motel — My Type (Eau Claire Remix)

My-Type-Eau-Claire-Remix

Fresh off of her festival debut at Firefly a couple of weekends back, DC’s own Eau Claire has dished out yet another ace remix, this time giving us her take on Saint Motel’s My Type. We were lucky enough to get a taste of this tune a little while back, and we’ll tell you now it was well worth the wait. True to the style we’ve come to know and love from her, Eau Claire’s given the original an eternally vibrant wash, letting bright instrumentals and shimmering melodies coexist playfully with the unique vocals. We really can’t imagine a better vibe to start the week with.

The remix is set for release tomorrow, June 30th, via Elektra Records. Additional reworks come from Kraak & Smaak, SAINT WKND, and The Floozies. Enjoy!

Life Of Dillon — Overload (Pierce Fulton Remix)

life-of-dillon-overload-pierce-fulton-remix

With same–sex marriage legalized across the US, and pride weekend in full swing, San Francisco is a pretty amazing place to be this weekend. The sun is shining, there’s a tangible energy in the air, people are ready to have a great time. Earlier this week we had Pierce Fulton’s new remix of Overload, by UK trio Life Of Dillon, sent over and it’s feel–good vibe couldn’t be more appropriate for the moment. The track sees Pierce shift his production style from the progressive approach we normally see him take, and as a result is a brilliant display of what a massive talent he is. Complimenting the original’s tropically–inspired undercurrent with a neatly contained vibrancy, and still just as primed for warm weather, he’s elevated this one to new heights. LOD lead singer Joe Griffith’s faultless vocals effortlessly combine with layered instrumentation and a spirited ebb and flow sure to have things moving in no time. Pop over to his Soundcloud to catch a copy for those playlists now.

The Weeknd — Can’t Feel My Face (Keljet Edit)

Keljet-Cant-Feel-My-Face-Edit

Let’s be honest, nothing makes it feel more like a Friday than jamming to some Keljet, and lucky for us the feel–good aficionados have just dropped a new edit of The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face to send us off right. The Dutch duo, like many of us, found the track immediately on loop upon it’s release, but they needed it to be a bit more dance–inducing for their sets — so here we are. Swapping out the original’s lackadaisical pace for a more upbeat approach, the guys have soaked it with infectious nu-disco grooves and a buoyant bassline, effectively creating your new party anthem. Hit play below and get down this weekend.

Also, if you’ve yet to give their recent Transatlantic EP a spin, we’d highly recommend it. 10/10 on this one. Listen on Spotify here.

RÜFÜS — You Were Right

RÜFÜS-You-Were-Right

Aussie trio RÜFÜS, or RÜFÜS DU SOL as they’re now known here in the States, have returned with the first single off their sophomore album, and what a stunning tune it is. There’s nothing like being immediately floored by the new material an artist comes out with after a break, and the boys have without a doubt outdone themselves on this one. Combining smoky synths, alluring melodies and a resounding bassline, RÜFÜS deliver a track that will quickly take you away to a place of summertime sunsets and vivid daydreams. Judging by this first taste, we’re definitely in for something special when the new album hits.

You Were Right is out now via our friends at Sweat It Out! Have a listen below and grab your copy here.

CS EXCLUSIVE | Set Mo

Set-Mo-Caveman-Sound-Exclusive

Few acts have stood out more to us over the past year than Sydney’s Set Mo. We’re never ones to hide our excessive love for the Australian scene, and these guys have been at the forefront of our list of acts to watch for awhile, consistently turning out hit after hit whether remix or original. Most recently their single White Dress, featuring Aussie legend Deutsch Duke, has seen countless spins and massive support worldwide, with official remixes from the likes of Wookie and Satin Jackets, so we think it’s safe to say the future is looking bright for the duo.

Today we’re stoked to be bringing you a new exclusive mixtape, plus a quick chat, with the guys. Hit play below and dive into it!

THE-JAM-JAR-116

We’re not sure about you guys, but surprisingly enough we’ve been cruising through the week at good pace thus far, so today we’re looking to keep those energy levels high. This weeks Jam Jar selection brings a nice dose of house vibes, kicking off on a brilliant note with LBCK’s funk infused remix of Patawawa’s Back To Life. Past that comes Little Things, the fantastic debut single from Amsterdam–based newcomer RU.BE, and an absolute stunner in The Terminal from Kayper, followed by the Billon boys turning things up with Slave To The Vibe, a new remix of Years & Years from one of our favorite duos Toyboy & Robin plus a whole bunch more.

KAPTAN — Anywhere We Go

kaptan-anywhere-we-go

Thanks to Anywhere We Go, the first single from Nashville’s KAPTAN, all I want to do now is grab my girlfriend, book two tickets to pretty much any sun–drenched locale, pack a bag consisting solely of one t–shirt, brightly swim trunks, espadrilles and fresh shades, then go explore the unknown for however long feels right. But of course, I can’t. So listening to this track on repeat will have to do for the time being.

KAPTAN is the new project from indie–pop artist Andrew de Torres, and judging by the brilliance of this debut, we’ll be paying close attention. The track is taken from his forthcoming The Sprinter EP, out August 18th via South By Sea. Don’t miss it.

CS PREMIERE | Y//2//K ft. ronaldoreagan — Love Lockdown (Remix)

y2k2y-love-lockdown

Without a doubt, Y//2//K’s been responsible for some of the most forward–thinking arrangements we’ve come across over the past year and his latest, which we’re giving you the first listen of today, sees him continue to own that title. Sure, we’ve heard our fair share of Kanye remixes in the past, but what the young gun producer has created here is on a whole different level. Displaying his tight handle on production and penchant for the unexpected, Y//2//K gives us what’s likely his most house leaning track to date, while still delivering that much–loved bass and sampled style he’s become known for. This one’s definitely not for the feint of heart, with LA–based producer ronaldoreagan’s input and a series of sharp crescendos helping to quickly build a formidable energy, so find some open space, take a deep breath and let loose.

You can grab yourself a free download of the remix here.

Antony & Cleopatra — Take Me (Pat Lok ‘Yukon Funk’ Mix)

Take-Me-Pat-Lok-Remix

Vancouver’s gift that keeps on giving, better known as Pat Lok, is back with yet another ace remix. London duo Antony & Cleopatra released their new single Take Me on Vitalic Noise earlier this month, and now the Canadian producer has brought his spin on the track, turning the bass laden original into a sizzling house cut that’s about to set your Saturday right. PL hits us a stack of echoing snaps, crisp kicks and buzzy percussion straight from the get–go, then locks in the groove with a buoyant bassline that’s got our head bobbing all the way through. It’s complex yet flawlessly layered, bringing a touch of funk, pinch of disco and a whole lot of feels. Hear the jam in full below and get down this weekend.

Nora En Pure — Into The Wild EP

Nora-En-Pure-Into-The-Wild-EP

If it weren’t already abundantly clear at this point that South African born, Switzerland–based producer Nora En Pure is a deep house juggernaut, her new Into The Wild EP should settle the matter. In some of her freshet work yet, she combines choice vocals and genre blending beats into an excellent two–track set. The title cut delivers a vibrant, summery feel, with refined instrumentals and euphoric notes guiding us through. U Got My Body on the other hand, brings in that signature weighty bassline alongside resonant horns for a more dramatic effect. The pair make an ideal compliment for each other, sure to aid any and every dance party this weekend.

Have a listen below and grab the set on Beatport, out now via Enormous Tunes, here.
