Sit back, relax, and listen to the treats we’ve got in store for you this week.
‘Good For You’ – Selena Gomez ft. A$AP Rocky (Nebbra Remix)
We haven’t been able to get enough of this one. Selena and A$AP made it into the top 10 with ‘Good For You’, while critics have said it is like Selena’s personal version of Beyonce’s ‘Partition’ due to its sexy lyrics and breathy vocals. The chilled out beat added by Nebbra makes this our hottest remix of the week.
‘Paper Heart’ – Chlöe Howl (Arches Remix)
You may have heard of Chlöe Howl. Back in 2014, she was nominated for a Brit Award and shortlisted for the BBC Sound Of 2014, narrowly missing out to Sam Smith. This remix is the perfect mixture of electronic and house with a seriously strong back beat. We love.
‘Drunk In Love’ – Beyonce (The Weeknd remix)
Not the most obscure remix, but there is a reason this one is so popular. The Weeknd has kept the tracks signature hook but added his own verses, breathing a new lease of life in Beyonce’s 2013 smash hit. It is available for download here, and well, it’s Beyonce and The Weeknd so…need we say more?
“Dancin'” – Aaron Smith (Krono remix)
Krono made some serious magic with this one. Whilst the original might suit some peoples taste, Krono’s addition of slowed down lyrics, a mellow baseline and a deeper voice, totally transformed the 2004 track into one of our hottest remixes.
“Say My Name” – Destiny’s Child (Cyril Hahn remix)
This one certainly earns it place on the mixtape. We all know the classic ‘Say My Name’ anthem released by the supergroup back in 1999. (Scary!) But have you ever heard it like this? Swiss DJ Cyril Hahn rids the track of the ladies voices, focussing on creating a chilled remix that wouldn’t sound out-of-place around the pool on your summer hols.
