Tommy Noble has remixed Wolfgang Gartner‘s “There and Back” to oblivion. The energy exuded from this track is superb. I totally dig the original track as it is an absolute monster. That said, Tommy Noble‘s version of ‘There and Back” just appears to be a little more tame and reigned in. Add this track to your next party playlist, throw on some lighting effects, and watch the bodies go insane.
15 hour work day… but this track is dopppeeee, make it to the 1:30ish mark and your in for a treat!
Everybody, regardless of age, knows at least something of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” It may be sacrilegious to some to remix such a timeless song. I’m sure, somewhere out there, someone will stomp their foot at this remix but I think it’s damn good. Leonard Dstroy manages to maintain the level of soul from the original track in his slightly amped up remix. There is no doubt that this track swims on the chill side of the proverbial river but belongs in all of your music libraries. Give it a solid listen and see what you think – maybe this modernized rendition of “Let’s Get It On” will impress that special lady of yours.
Make sure to see what Leonard Dstroy is made of on his Bandcamp page. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the diversity Leonard Dstroy possesses.
This track is an absolute MONSTER. With his remix of “The Night Out,” A-Trak has created a happy medium -of sorts- between your classic radio-pop Solveig sound, and the music you like to get roudy to when you’re out and about. I’m digging the extra kick A-Trak includes in the remix. A-Trak has made the drops MASSIVELY subtle (oxymoron?) but, at the same time, musically mighty. If a track is versatile enough to be on my party playlist AND riding playlist then you’ve (errr the artist) has made something pretty spectacular.
R/D has been slanging gold! Another dope remix. We just featured R/D as one of our elevated artists and, as we predicted, the dude continues to create super stellar music This remix is cool because there are many different styles of electro music coming into play: Dubstep, glitch, and pop just to name a few. I highly recommend listening to this track from start to finish before you pass your judgement… it’s one of those tracks that builds up and evolves over it’s entire 5 minute.
We recognize a wide variety of talent on PTSL. With hundreds of submissions a week and super tight music being released daily it’s difficult to pick out the most promising, up and coming acts. The Elevated Artist series will highlight artists that the PTSL crew thinks displays skill that transcends others and talent that we think will explode. We call em’, you dig em’… done and done.
R/D has been gaining momentum lately. Releasing a super tight album and creating a successful “Pair of Arrows” side project (previously highlighted on PTSL HERE) with Swan is just the tip of the iceberg. Bay Crush is the title of R/D’s latest album and is worth every penny… be sure to pick it up here. It’s a four track EP that will leave your jaw gaping and ear drums resonating.
The track below is a remix R/D put together of Loyal Divides “Vision, Vision.” The original version of “Vision Vision” is rad, a more low end, chill track for sure. R/D put the proverbial musical jumper cables on it and made it into an pretty intense electro banger.

This next two tracks are off of R/D’s Bay Crush and are just as righteous as the track above. They are both R/D originals and carry a level of deep intensity that I think a lot of you are going to vibe to. As with a lot of tracks we post, I strongly recommend you listen to these songs from start to finish… and as loud as your can tolerate. We aren’t going to put them up for download as we want to support R/D’s financial future so he can continue generating these ill type tracks – download Bay Crush Here.
Holy smokes is this track dope. This track errs on the more mellow side of the electronic music spectrum but delivers comes in hard with a wide range of super silky smooth sounds. Yeah, your going to hear some xylophone (which is, by the way, my favorite word that starts with X), some pretty standard keyboard synth, eastern sounding wind instruments, and some pretty unique percussion.
Your going to have to listen to this track all the way through to really develop an strong appreciation for the super mellow vibes that Benny Loco has put on your plate. Me personally? I’m jamming to the whole track, but if you forced me, by gunpoint obviously, to pick out my favorite parts it would definitely be the opening Drum beats or the melody that kicks in around the 1:35 mark. Make sure to check Benny Loco out on facebook to stay up to date on his sophisticated sounds.
This remix took me back for sure, right back to middle school thinking I was cool as fuck listening to DMX. Jantsen did a way dope remix of the DMX classic “Party Up”. This song straight rides, so get yourself the free download and take a listen. Jantsen has been in the CO electronic scene for over a decade, and he’s been doing real big things lately; including some collabs with Bassnectar! So, if you haven’t heard of Jantsen yet, it’s time to start listening, cause he’s going nowhere but up!

So, the other day I was getting my normal morning steeze on ( puffpuff / facebook / looking for new tunes) and I came upon this group on my cousins wall (his name is Reid and attends FSU).
Styles&Complete is made up of two guys out of Charlotte, NC, A-Styles and DJ Complete. I’ve never heard of them up until now, but they mainly make remixes and mashes. Throwing Lil Jon over a dirty Figure beat just works, I was skeptical at first, but trust me these guys did it right. I also included one of their originals so you can check out their whole range of tunes.
The artists featured in these songs that you might have heard of: Childish Gamino, Lil Jon, Lil Scrappy, Three6Mafia, Bassnectar, Figure, Wolfgang Gartner, Zedd & DJ Kontrol.
Slam the Heartbeat (Childish Gamino // Zedd)
Love Having Sex The Way It Was (Three6Mafia // Wolfgang Gartner)
Wildstyle Problems (Lil Scrappy // Bassnectar)
Epic (Original Mix)
The Bia’s Revenge (Lil Jon // Figure)
Get Naked (Lil Jon // DJ Kontrol)
I give you… (drum roll…) Bronze Whale. Bronze Whale is… well one half JAQUES and the other half is some rando (who I cant name at this point in time.)
This is a remix to Miike Snow‘s “Devil’s Day” and its pretty epic. Relatively intense piano to start, flanged drum beat to elevate, and resounding synth to compliment the remaining portion of the background production. There’s some wobbles and a bit of trippy synth that help contribute to the overall dopeness of this track.
Download it, play it loud, and get after it.
Always stoked to post about a Colorado Native, I give you the James Egbert remixes of a couple Blood on the Dance Floor tracks. Blood on The Dance floor is an… odd phenomena. I would never dream of posting one of their original track on this blog as their sound is a little too… fruity(?) for my liking. That said, I bite my tongue because James Egbert has turned two lame tracks into couple of extremely hard hitting rippers.
James Egbert does a nice job of staying true to the catchy melodies from the original Blood on the Dance floor tracks and removes the ulta emo, shitty, poppyness out of them by injecting the tracks with some good ole fashioned face melting progressive house vibes.
We can’t give these tracks away so if you want to download them you’ll have to snag them from beatport in from the Soundcloud streams below.
The Polish Ambassador is the project of David Sugalski. He actually lives in Oakland, CA, but claims to be Poland’s Ambassador to the Universe. His original work and remixes are always fun and dancey. This is a remix of Little Dragons song Ritual Union. I caught a free show of his over in Vail last month and I was expecting a dope dance party; he didn’t let me down. Check out his tour dates and more of his music HERE!
Here’s a video he released with the song that I really enjoyed, all of the footage was shot from on London busses.
I’m loving the Weekend remixes that have been popping up as of late. Only good things can come out of dope producers putting their spin on the soul filled vibes the Weekend emits in their tracks. This remix is done by none other then Paper Diamond of the Pretty Lights music label. The original is a slow song, as is the remix, but the feeling and emotion in the track is amplified by Paper Diamond.
You guys loved Skrillex’s “Kyoto” ft Sirah that we posted several weeks ago… if you thought the original was dope wait until you hear the remix put together by TYR. I love most of the TYR’s version of Kyoto, though I will say there area portions of the track where it sounds like TYR tried too hard at bringing up the intensity levels. I do, however, love the super sped up segments towards the end of the track and the regular, bouncy verses, are super ILL.
