Era Istrefi - Redrum (What So Not Remix)

The unparalleled producer, What So Not, blesses us with a remix of ‘Redrum’ by Kosovar singer and songwriter Era Istrefi. Unlike his other bangers, What So Not adds a chill, absolutely blissful twist to the song. According to the Australian producer, letting Era’s vocals drive the track whilst keeping the instrumental as simple as possible was a good challenge. And he perfectly nailed it.

Enjoy the track below and make sure to follow What So Not and Era Istrefi for more music.

Cleindl - Girl

I hope you are all staying cool and hydrated in this Summer heat. I’m having a hard time accepting the reality that it’s already August, but on the plus side, that means that Obon (a week-long national holiday in Japan) is coming up, so at least there is that to look forward to!

For all you Tokyoites reading, I hope you’ve got something awesome planned for the upcoming holiday. We’re extremely excited to be throwing our first official club event, Aural Pleasure, featuring some amazing acts like Submerse, HVNS, Steffen Yoshiki, Electric Candy Sand, yurei, Frankie $, along with our very own crew to kick off the break on August 11th at Club Circus in Shibuya. We hope to see you there!

Speaking of good local artists, check out this silky-smooth track by fellow Tokyo native, Cleindl. The wonderfully sidechained synths and atmospheric vocal chops make this future beat a breath of fresh air for electronic music coming from the Japanese music scene.

DJ Khaled - Wild Thoughts ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller (Medasin Remix)

It's finally out! My mind was running wild when medasin had posted a short video on Facebook of his official remix for DJ Khaled's 'Wild Thoughts.' Something about Medasin's chord progressions and immaculate arrangement on this remix makes it absolutely addictive. It's delicately warm LFO-ed synth, atmospheric plucks, distortedly punchy bass lines and, obviously, the unmatched hooks from Riri, as well as a surprising appearance by Bryson Tiller, instantly put me in a good mood.

Enjoy the remix below and highly encourage you to follow Medasin, if you haven't yet. Also, give love to his track on hypem here!

Mutemath - Safe If We Don't Look Down (Imagined Herbal Flows Remix)

Imagined Herbal Flows (now simply known as “IHF”) is easily one of my favorite producers. Yet again, he’s created something amazing, this time, with his rendition of Mutemath’s track, “Safe If We Don’t Look Down”. Utilizing their catchy guitar riffs and vocal hooks, IHF creates a dreamy soundscape for you to drift away to.

If you dig his vibe, I would definitely recommend checking out the Departure EP, which was released earlier this year. It’s jam-packed with 6 of his original masterpieces that make for easy listening. Perfect for a nice, relaxing day in at home.
