In addition to the announcement of their upcoming show, the guys have just released a brand new remix of ASTR’s Operate that has got us (if possible) even more pumped for this Friday. Following suit with their previous successes, they’ve taken an alluring indie track and tied it to their crisp progressive house sound. The feel of the original is still alive but they’ve added an engaging and uplifting melody that gives it a very emotionally charged vibe. Pick up the free download via their Facebook page below!

Every time we get a new track from Stockholm duo Zebra Safari, we pretty much know before even listening that it’s going to be a great tune. This trend certainly holds true on their newest remix of Daughter’s Youth. It isn’t the first time they’ve taken on the London band, previously we’ve seen them successfully transform their track Love, and now they’ve decided to try their at it hand once again. By now they’ve proven themselves to be masters of subtly altering indie jams into catchy and crisp electro pop tunes. There has been numerous takes on this track floating around already, but Zebra Safari are able to set themselves apart with a brief yet effective chopped-up mix. Pick up the download below!
Catch their brilliant remix of Banks’ Warm Water as well.

Our fifteenth installment of The Jam Jar has arrived ladies and gents, and in this week’s list we’ve got heat coming from all directions, with equal parts heavy-hitting dance tunes and more relaxed daytime jams. Japan’s Boys Get Hurt gives us a grand remix of Reflex’s Together via Continental Records, French duo Rise & Fool serve up their killer take on Bastille, and our favorite fun-in-the-sun producers Poolside are back with a brand new single off their upcoming album — plus a whole lot more. These ones will surely have you jamming straight through to the weekend, so without further adieu, dig in!
It has been a little while since we’ve heard from LA’s Vindata. The duo are responsible for some of our more loved remixes over the past year, with their genre–bending sound taking over tracks from Wildcat! Wildcat!, Little Dragon, Toro y Moi, and more. Now they’re back with a new one and have brought a heap of summertime vibes with it. Intuition, a new track from Sydney’s Cambio Sun, gets an inventive spin with a laid back vibe, chopped up vocals, and plenty of bass – making it a fairly versatile tune all around. Be sure you grab a copy to add to your summer collection!
Check out the really amazing original version as well.

After an extremely successful previous mix of The Knocks The Feeling, Brooklyn’s Dave Edwards takes on the duo once again with this killer new remix of Modern Hearts featuring St. Lucia. In his usual fashion, the track has been manipulated to perfection and we’re given a feel-good anthem that’s equal parts indie dance, nu disco, and electro house. He’s effectively captured all the sounds and feelings of summer in the city in one amazing tune, creating something that we’ll definitely be thoroughly enjoying over the next few months. Don’t hesitate to scoop this one up and start your weekend a little early!

French trio WAEK has put together a brilliant official remix of Lemâitre’s track Continuum, off their EP Relativity 3, that packs quite a solid punch. They’ve taken the already incredible original and injected it with their big French electro sound, built on powerful synths and funky, crushing buildups, while still keeping the overall vibe aligned.

We’re not sure about you, but we just had a pretty wild long weekend, so we’re definitely in need of some sweet jams to get us through to the next one. Luckily this is just the reason we created The Jam Jar, for those weeks that come Wednesday are already dragging on, and unfortunately only half way done. Lifting up your spirits this time around we’ve got a deep house take on a Seal classic from Bixel Boys, a glittering rendition of Yuksek & Oh Land’s new single by Kasper Bjorke, and a French house twist on Coastal Cities Entropic from Yuksek’s pals Juveniles. We’re really feeling all of the energetic, summetime vibes with this collection, and are sure you will too. As always you can grab each and every one of these gems for free below!
Partyfine label-head and French music man Yuksek just put out this amazing remix of fellow French band Lilly Wood & The Prick. He takes their track Middle Of The Night, from the LP The Fight, and works his usual magic on the tune creating what is surely one of our favorite remixes so far this year. This style is the exact reason why we dig his sound so much — bouncing bass hooks, clever and crisp vocals, and a myriad of clips, claps, and percussion layered throughout. While the original is a sweet jam in it’s own right, Yuksek fixes it up to make it ideal for the club. You can pick up the track below!

The Jam Jar, a brand new feature we’ll be rolling out every Wednesday going forward. The concept is pretty straightforward, each week we’ll add a new collection of indie-dance, house, and nu-disco style jams to the jar — the kind of tunes that carry you off into sun-filled daydreams, that are packed full of funky beats and deep basslines, and that most importantly make your day a more enjoyable one.
Happy Wednesday everybody! We hope your week has been grand so far, but if not, it will surely get better after reading this post. It’s our favorite time of the week again, when we get to bring you a handful of tasty new tunes via The Jam Jar. Supplying your midweek bliss this time around we’ve got a spaced out remix of everyone’s favorite R.A.M. track Doin’ It Right, courtesy of Brooklyn’s The Golden Pony, a beautiful take on José González from Munich’s Dinner Date, and some sensual deep vibes by way of LA’s Them Jeans. Snag the whole pack for free below!
There are plenty of reasons not to like Mondays, but when it’s a Monday that NYC duo The Chainsmokers decides to release a new track, well, that’s certainly one reason to love it. The guys sent their brand new official remix for the beautiful gypsetting sister duo Say Lou Lou over this morning, describing it as what they feel to be their best song yet, and we have to say we absolutely agree. As big fans of Say Lou Lou’s original work, we have high expectations for any remixes that come out, and this version of their already amazing single Julian is a prime example of one done right, and exactly why we love what The Chainsmokers do so much. Their blending of pop, indie, and progressive sounds on this is flawless, and it evokes that joyous feeling of a warm night out in the summer to perfection. It just came out as part of the Julian Remix EP, and is available as a free download over on The Chainsmokers Facebook page, so go pick it up!

We’re bringing you deep, disco vibes aplenty this week, with a brand new line-up of some of the freshest jams we’ve been bumping as of late. The knights of feel good, French Express, make a dual appearance this time around with an incredible new one from Moon Boots, and a brilliant remix of one of the best tracks of last year, Chris Malinchak’s So Good To Me, courtesy of UK producer EJECA. Up-and-comers Branded James and Dude Skywalker also bring the heat with some great new tunes. Each one of these tracks is a pure gem, so don’t hesitate to get your hands on them all!
Yuksek’s newly minted label Partyfine is already proving to be a formidable source of quality tunes. Of course, this isn’t surprising news considering the enormous talent of the labels founder. We can expect releases to reflect his own diverse taste in music; from disco, electro, indie and club. In the words of Yuksek himself,
“The label is a natural extension of my past years where I have produced for other artists. I met many of Partyfine’s collaborators this way (JD Samson, The Magician, Oh Land, Juveniles etc) and just felt like extending the experience, writing music with them, not just for them”.
With it’s very first EP release yesterday, we’re already getting an initial taste the type of impressively crafted work we can expect from the young, yet experienced label. Each of the two original tracks featured on Partyfine EP #1 are brilliant productions, and the accompanying remixes are also well worthy of note. The lead track is a collaboration between Partyfine’s own Yuksek and the wonderful Brooklyn-based songstress Oh Land, a pairing we’ve seen once before on Yuksek’s remix of her song Son Of A Gun, which is a personal favorite. This second meeting proves to be nothing short of amazing, with dramatic, swooping beats built around really great vocal work. Truth, the next cut off the EP, is a buoyant jam that oozes French house vibes and features vocals provided by French band Juveniles, who’s upcoming debut album Yuksek happens to be producing. You can pick up the full EP over on iTunes now, and can also grab a couple of super cool remixes from Michael Garcon and Sam Tiba for free below!
We hope you’re ready to dance because The Jam Jar is back once again, with our first double digit entry. This week’s collection puts the spotlight on some bright, dreamy, and deep tunes – with new ones from familiar faces to The Jam Jar, Lane 8 and Clancy, an incredible remix from Gigamesh of Crystal Fighters, who’s new album Cave Rave is one of our most anticipated releases of the moment, and though Lifelike’s remix of Get Lucky is the only one we’ve chosen to officially recognize up to now, JackLNDN has done a killer take on it that’s definitely worth hearing. As always they’re free downloads all around, so without further delay, dig in!
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had some fresh material from LA/Berlin disco dudes Ride The Universe, but we’re happy to say they’re back in action with a shiny new remix. They have just reworked one of our favorite tracks of late, Keljet and X Ambassadors Love Of A Life, released a couple of days ago via On The Fruit Records as part of the Mini EP (which also includes the Mighty Mouse remix we featured in THE JAM JAR 006). We couldn’t be more glad they got their hands on this one, having molded the original into a funktastic laid-back ride, that’s chalk full of blissful summertime vibes and bubbling robotic vocal clips. Be sure to pick up this version and the rest of the EP below!
It’s the first day of May, summertime is just around the corner, and yet another round of The Jam Jar is here. You know how this works by now, each week we shower you with a collection of tasty tunes from indie dance, nu-disco, deep house and the like, to help you cruise over that midweek hump and set the stage for a great weekend ahead. Getting things moving today we’ve got a brand new remix out on DFA from the always great RAC, a shimmering nu-disco gem from LA’s Glenn Dale, energetic tribal beats courtesy of French duo Rise & Fool, plus a whole lot more. Pick them up for free below, and as always, enjoy!
Hope everyone’s having a great week so far. We know we’re already looking forward to the weekend, and luckily The Jam Jar has once again arrived to keep us rolling through the last few days of work on a good note. We’ve got some special ones for you today from well-versed tunesmiths, as well as a few names you may not have come across yet, but trust us when we say you’ll be hooked and hearing a lot more of each one of them. Enough talk now, let’s get to this weeks list, kicking things off in style with an unreal remix of Young Empires from Toronto’s Natural Animal, electro pop madness courtesy of Avec Sans, and a deep cut featuring killer vocal work from Jeremy Glenn. Grab them all after the jump!
Ron Flieger helps us kick the weekend off on the right note with his brand new remix of Metric’s Stadium Love. Following hugely successful official work for both Ladyhawke and Foster The People, we’ve come to expect great things from the German producer, and that’s exactly what we get here. He’s done a killer mix on the original, keeping Emily Haines vocals at the forefront while adding in a crisp electro beat to back them up. Make sure you add this one to those weekend playlists. Happy Friday everybody!
And we’re back! We’ve been on a slight hiatus as we ventured down to the desert for an absolutely epic week at Coachella, but we made it back in one piece and just in time to deliver some hot new selections for our seventh installment of The Jam Jar. We’re going deep, disco, and funky this week – capturing those moments of pure bliss on the dancefloor and bringing you a bevy of party-worthy house vibes. This round kicks off with some amazing work on The Knocks & St. Lucia’s new tune Modern Hearts from Jam Jar regular Goldroom, and the beats continue with more new ones from Kidnap Kid, Louis La Roche, Blake! and more. Have a listen and download them all for free below!

The jams are flowing, the sun is beginning to shine, and music festival season is just around the corner. We probably say this every week The Jam Jar comes around, but this weeks round-up is stacked. In this new collection we’ve got a killer edit by Amtrac of everyone’s favorite 2012 act Bondax, a shiny new electro pop remix courtesy of New York’s Dave Edwards, and a rarity in the form of a remix from Two Door Cinema Club – in addition to much, much more.
