Koven – Get This Right (Pilot Remix)

Pilot continues his ascent before our very eyes with his latest track, a high-energy and melodic remix of “Get This Right” by Koven. The defining characteristic of this mix is the soaring synth riff that marks the first drop, a bold musical choice that accentuates the passionate vocals while also giving Pilot a some room to be creative in his later drops (stick around to the last one). Enjoy the track below, and give Pilot a follow on Soundcloud below!

Galantis – No Money (Dillon Francis Remix)

Two Dillon Francis songs in one month is an unbelievable treat. This time our favorite DJ takes on Galantis’ catchy single “No Money” and twists it into a hard EDM banger. If at first you don’t appreciate it, find some louder speakers with a bit more bass. The fun is in the energy and the fact that this track is bound to get everyone going wild on the dancefloor. Enjoy below.

Madintyo – Uber Everywhere (Slushii Remix)

Another unnecessarily aggressive track off the beatpad of the mysterious Slushii. Honestly for the first minute of the song I thought he’d toned it down a bit for this one but oh boy was I wrong. Pretty fire drop, though, the “skirt skirt” was integrated well. If you’re wondering how Slushii makes his magic, check out the hour and fifteen minutes of live production he put up on his facebook the other day. It was pretty cool to see into an artist’s process like that, I wonder if the future of DJing will include a lot more of that. Enjoy below.

Slushii – Closer

Slushii has absolutely no chill. His eighth release in three weeks is another high-energy EDM onslaught with crisp beats and smooth vocals that lure you in before he hits you with the satisfying drop. The fact that he has released two originals to go alongside his six remixes shows that he’s not just a copy artist that needs other people’s hooks to make a good song. Looking forward to more from Slushii – check out my profile of his breakout into the EDM scene here

Who is Slushii?

Slushii

EDM producer Slushii has come out of nowhere and captured the largely undivided attention of the indie electroverse with his hard-hitting drops and veiled persona. Nobody really seems to “know” who he is – his Soundcloud bio just lists his name as “Julian S.” and one of his social media profiles simply reads (in Japanese) “when the problem is solved … not everyone is ready for a solution.”  Slushii seems to be thriving off of this sense of mystery, and it surely doesn’t hurt that he’s churning out tracks at an industrial rate: 7 tracks in the last two weeks (six of those in the first week).

Despite the lack of clues, YourEDM.com seems to have cracked the case of his identity and revealed Slushii to be Julian Scanlan. Julian has already received support from Jauz and Marshmello, two artists with similar styles and very large followings. Slushii particularly channels Marshmello’s anonymous DJ motif, and the success of both artists demonstrates the importance of a good brand in this over-saturated electronic music world. In one tweet, Jauz points to where Slushii may be moving with his music next: “Me n @SlushiiMusic about to bring back 2010 dubstep so hard and you’re gonna love it no matter how much you don’t want to”.

Selena Gomez – Same Old Love (Borgore Remix)

Disney star turned pop-singer Selena Gomez has been dropping singles like crazy and a few of them have been remixed into pretty sweet tracks by the indie electronic world. This is another one that can be added to the list. Borgore adds a bit of dubstep to the track with some grinding synth and smart vocal chops, while maintaining the integrity of Gomez’s sweet vocals. An all around solid track that could be good for a chill party or a dance floor. Enjoy below.

TheFatRat – Monody (Feat. Laura Brehm)

Captivating orchestral sounds and a catchy electronic melody come together to make this FatRat song a hit. This German producer has a bit of an “older” EDM sound but he knows how to use it well in the modern SoundCloud arena. Stick around for the vocal interlude in the middle of the track and you’re guaranteed to be impressed. Enjoy the track below.

P.S. – It’s been brought to my attention that the orchestral piece in the beginning may be sampled from the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song – anyone who can verify this for me gets +100 internet points.
