Psst! Cool Stuff: 5 times a dance/house remix switched up our fav track
Tim Lyre – Hubris ft Lex Amor [Hobie Remix]
Going deeper with ‘Hobie’s remix of Tim Lyre’s Hubris really inspires confidence, a little too much even. The UK producer is known for acclaimed releases on Seb Wildblood’s Church and all my thoughts imprints, including the BBC 6 Music-approved ‘Strugglebus vol.1’. While all that is very impressive, his work on this song is alot to write home about without doing too much; the drops come in just when you need them and the enchanting lo-fi energy is only enhanced.
Ayra Starr – Bloody Samaritan (Sun-EL Musician Remix)
A bloody good remix! Sun-EL is yet to miss a mark and this was no different. The South African producer first got everyone’s attention with ‘Akanamali’ which he did with Samthing Soweto in 2018 off his Africa To The World album. The best way to describe the energy the house music additions brought to this track is transportive!
Omaly Lay – Damn [Cricket Remix]
This remix by Kosovo-Albanian producer, Cricket (Donat Prelvukaj) was so smoothly done that listening to this feels like an extension of the original. The switches are so distinct yet so infused it’s difficult not to conclude that the song was meant to be exactly like this from the start.
L.A.X – Sempe [R3HAB Remix]
R3HAB said Sempe x 3 with the hard start on this version. In our mind, he’s in the mountains somewhere playing for a very hyper free spirited sea of people or maybe he’s at REHASH in Fexii ID’s set lit playing this for Lagosians who want to transport themselves to an EDM rave in broad daylight.
Majeeed ft Tiwa Savage – Gbese [EDM Version]
Majeeed! new kid with a voice of an OG. Mystro did a number here with Gbese featuring Tiwa Savage. Can’t say we saw this coming, but we’re defintely not mad. The work on this is maybe a little typical but in this instance, typical is not frowned upon. We can see it fit right in at the height of many loud and flashing nights pumping just the right amount of dopamine into everyone’s system to keep them going for “one more hour”.
