Joe Bermudez – Shadows/Room Service (Remixes)

Now available to purchase through Beatport is a new string of remixes, and each one is based around two singles from Boston based producer and Joe Bermudez, who continues to grab attention with every release.

Up first is “Shadows”, and three artists have stepped up to rework it. We love the strongly energised Adam Rickfors cut, which comes before further edits by NDKj & Paul Fear and Mike Saint-Jules, who provides a grounded, grooving sound.

“Room Service” also receives three reworks, and this time Rene Amesz, Jesse Garcia and Jamie Antonelli bring the goods to this already hugely catchy tune.

Pick up all six remixes from here and here.

BCee – Thanks For Joining Us LP

Coming strongly out of Spearhead Records this week is “Thanks For Joining Us”, the captivating new remix LP from label owner BCee.

There has clearly been a lot of thought and hard work that has gone into making this drum and bass project, and it comes bursting with all the trademark precision in production that you would expect from such seasoned featured artists.

Amongst our top picks come the Ulterior Motive remake of “Firebox”, Klute’s take on “Come & Join Us”, and relative newcomers GLXY’s work on the stunning “Think Twice.” Spanning fourteen tracks in total, we highly recommend you check this one out from start to finish.

Get it here.

Kaleem Taylor – By My Side

Just out as a joint release on Epic Amsterdam and Sony Music is “By My Side”, a truly indulgent listen from London hailing artist Kaleem Taylor. 

Having had his vocals feature on the work of Tchami back in 2013, Taylor has since turned to his own productions, and this new single is a gorgeous blend of vocals and dance production. The mood here is soulful and richly melodic, with the songwriter explaining that this sound is broader than his previous work.

You can get your ears around it here.

Bakermat – Living (Remixes)

Setting up shop over on Ultra Music this week is a trio of fresh remixes, and they all come based around Bakermat and Alex Clare‘s wildly popular recent collaboration. “Living” is taken in new directions by three talented producers, and this release will undoubtedly continue to push the overall success of the original.

Sonic Matta, HUGEL and Calvo are all on hand to bring contributions to the single, with Sonic Matta adding plenty of bassline and rhythmical oopmh, HUGEL putting in a pacy house edit and Calvo keeping its use of guitar to help it grow in intensity.

You can find all three here.

Salt Ashes – Save It (Remixes)

Making its way out of Radikal Records this week is a seriously good remix EP, and it has been brought to attention thanks to “Save It” from Salt Ashes. The track first appeared as part of the singer’s debut album of the same name, and now a host of names have lined up to put unique spins on it.

Four remakes are featured as this release, with Control-S stepping up first with a deeply melodic house/garage fusion that is full of groove and infectious energy. Nathan C and Danny Dove provide another pulsing cut, this one with more bassline emphasis, and Jerome Price switches things up again with a drum-laden, slowly building sound. Last but not least, Manuel Riva rounds the set off with a punchy, rhythmical rework.

Get the full set here.
