Poolside – And The Sea (Pixelated Remix)

Poolside’s ‘And The Sea’ gets drenched in (more) summer vibes courtesy of Pixelated’s recent remix. Yours for free up on SoundCloud.

Finding it very difficult to believe this was over three years ago…


Vallis Alps – Young (Zimmer remix)

Reflective tones on the new remix from Parisian producer Zimmer. He’s stretched out ‘Young’ from Seattle-based Vallis Alps, adding another level of dreaminess to the already melancholic tune.

For the longer listen, dip into his recent May mixtape featuring a couple of remixes from the Frenchie, besides gems from Lindstrom, Kenton Slash Demon and Moderat:

Lea Porcelain – Loose Life (Roman Flügel Remix)

Mood music of the best kind…

With a reflective, changing of the season atmosphere here at HDHQ, we were blessed with the ideal soundtrack in this emotional, synth-heavy remix of Lea Porcelain. Roman Flügel has pulled out the new wave elements to great effect, building a crisp electronic base for Markus Nikolaus’s melancholy vocals. With all the reminiscing that came from #indieamnesty, this tugged at the heart-strings like some of the classics of the late-era, hands in the air period.

‘Loose Life’ is taken from LP’s self-titled debut EP and Roman’s version is half of a remix package put out by Live At Robert Johnson, last seen releasing HD fave Fort Romeau. Another winner.

Disclosure – Magnets ft. Lorde (Jon Hopkins Remix)

Big, bold and beautiful remix of Disclosure’s ‘Magnets’ from Jon Hopkins, as featured on the recently-released ‘Magnets (The Remixes)’ EP alongside other efforts from SG Lewis, Tiga, A-Trak and more. Go buy.


Aphrohead – Grown Man Cryy (Carl Craig ‘Brainy Grimlin’ Remix)

Ok, let’s get this Thursday started.

Aphrohead, aka Felix Da Housecat for all you 90s heads out there, has recently put out his first LP in over a decade and he’s pulled in the-man-who-needs-no-intro Carl Craig to rework one of the tracks, ‘Grown Man Cryy’.

The ‘Brainy Grimlin’ remix (us neither) is nine minutes of muscular techno that kicks into life with some old-fashioned bleeps at 4:40. Essentially, these two still very much have “it” and “it” is on full display here.

Sailor & I – Leave The Light On (Kidnap Kid Remix)

We’ve been enjoying the slightly deeper direction Kidnap Kid’s been heading of late. He’s added some finesse to Sailor & I’s ‘Leave The Light On’. It’s out now on Ultra Music’s sub-label The Invention of Loneliness Records, and you can get it right here.

Soccer96 – Flight Formation (Danny Krivit Edit)

One for the vinyl heads.

The whole ‘Flight Formation’ package has been floating around for months now. It consists of Brighton outfit Soccer96‘s wonderful original, Glenn Astro’s DJ Friendly Edit and this cheeky number from Danny Krivit. The tune’s got that well-thought-out and finely-crafted feel that all instant classics do, and considering the jazzy affair’s finally seeing a vinyl release we thought it was worth a post.

It seems apt that our pals over at Wotnot Music are releasing this. If you’re unfamiliar with the London-based label, they’ve established a solid rep for creativity having had previous releases from K-15, Henry Wu and Deft.

Looking ahead they’ve got a lot on their plates to be excited about, with new material from Danny Clark, the Gent Mason-produced Tabanca and the below.

‘Do What You Do’ is by Aurora Dee Raynes (collab between Touchy Subject and Danielle Kranendonk) and Thump describing it as ‘the best acid trip you never took‘ should be enough to make you press play.

Jax Jones – Yeah Yeah Yeah (Clapapella Dub)

Second remix of this one to surface in the last week or two and it’s a corker.

The excellently-named ‘Clapapella Dub’ version of Jax Jones’ new single ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’ chugs along at a very accommodating pace, and much to our enjoyment, JJ very kindly donated it to Annie Mac’s ‘Free Music Monday’ service yesterday.

It joins Roosevelt’s more tropical effort, which you can listen to below:

Jamie xx – Loud Places (John Talabot’s Loud Synths Reconstruction)

If there is such a thing as a banker of a remix, it’s John Talabot on Jamie xx:

JT’s “Loud Synths Reconstruction” of ‘Loud Places’ is coming out on a Young Turks 12” soon and it’ll sit nicely alongside your copy (we know you’ve got one) of ‘In Colour’.

Dark Sky – Voyages (Francis Inferno Orchestra remix)

Dark Sky have had some remixes done of their ‘Voyages’ single, this is the best one:

Newly signed to Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label, Francis Inferno Orchestra is a house producer from Down Under and he’s done a tech-house job on this one. Rhythmic but not oppressive, it’s a mid-set staple.

As festival season cranks into gear, we can imagine getting a serious nod on to this one, perhaps sipping a cold beer on a beach somewhere that isn’t Brighton/the Thames. Surely that’s enough to warrant a listen?
