Jasmine Thompson continues to enamor listeners with her honeyed, silken vocals, which she now lends to a stunning new rendition of Hozier’s now world conquering hit Take Me To Church, crafted on the production end by French producer TEEMID. Together, they’ve turned the dark and solemn song on its heels. Though still quite the somber tune, the new edition is now hauntingly sultry and pillowy plush. It retains a cinematic, soulful quality despite its now electrified approach.

Chiara Scura - Paradigm 

No Sleep is a producer from Pittsburgh who’s produced for some amazing acts, like Mac Miller, OnCue, and KR. He really knows how to work his magic around R&B and hip hop. Prime example, No Sleep’s killer new remix of The Weeknd’s Wicked Games, an intoxicating electronic potion that keeps The Weeknd’s syrupy vocals front and center. Slick rolling beats and spacious atmosphere give the song a still sensual but quite refreshing and delicate veneer. If you’re hungering for more of No Sleep’s expertise, stream his recent remix of P Reign’s DnF, featuring Drake & Future, below.

In the past year the Los Angles based future music group SOULECTION has taken over a multitude of different music fronts. With artists like Mr. Carmack, Ta-Ku, and J-Louis under their roof they’re bound to break the genre barrier and with J-Louis’s latest release, this is no exception.

Based in Los Angles, California J-Louis has continued to put out bangers for the better part of a decade. With his newest installment, he brings together a beautiful blend of jazz and hip hop for HEAVEN ft. ZACARI. He takes an easy going base line and runs it into a beautiful melody, a great blend of downtempo house with jazzy hip hop influences. Not to mention, all the vocals were recorded on a iPhone.

I’m much used to sharing fantastic remixes by Vancouver producer Pat Lok, but this time, we reverse the formula. This time, Australian synthpop band Gold Fields has remixed Pat Lok’s All In My Head, featuring Desirée Dawson. I just shared Pat Lok’s deep disco house edit of Gold Fields’ Hold Me a few days ago, so this is one of those symbiotic remix swaps, it would seem. Gold Fields brings plenty of balmy, summery xylophone vibes on their luscious yet edged indie dance edit.

British producer Danglo will be dropping his new EP, Swept Away, on February 9th via Kitsune Maison. Heady EP track Catch My Eye gets a deliciously textured remix by rising UK producer Armeria. It’s a deeply hypnotic and effervescent future bass listen, feathery with a gossamer atmosphere and floating with a delicate elegance.
