Promising Scandinavian electronic duo Pegboard Nerds are back with their pal Tristam for the release of a new track, “Razor Sharp,” on Monstercat. If you’re in search of an aggressive change of mid-tempo pace, look no further than the 110 BPM moombahcore madness that ensues after the drop of this stabbing electro heart-thumper. You’ll know you’re alive at the end of this one.
Beatport: Pegboard Nerds & Tristam – Razor Sharp
I have to say, I was pretty disappointed with Krewella‘s “Come & Get It” remix pack. The original mix was kind of this ultra fast-paced blend of electro pop and drum & bass, which I don’t think was very conducive to the outcome of these six new versions.
After getting a behind the scenes look into the production, we now get to hear the full Dillon Francis remix of Passion Pit‘s “Carried Away” in all its ecstatic glory. There’s basically two entirely different moods at play, beginning with the uplifting, vocally diced intro, and ending with what he’s described as “moombahton on acid.” I love how it all comes together.
There may not be a hotter dance music producer out than Dillon Francis at the moment. After proving his remix prowess on recently commissioned mixes for Justin Timberlake and Passion Pit, the Galactic Lord of Moombah is turning the focus on his own campaign with a brand new original single, “Messages.”
Surprisingly enough, Avicii has provided an official edit of the Amber Coffman-assited hit, “Get Free,” for Major Lazer‘s new Lazer Strikes Back Volume 3. In case the Swede’s folk-infused Ultra performance wasn’t enough evidence, this moombahton paced rework further proves Bergling is looking to push his boundaries as a producer. Despite it not being expected though, the subtle touches do turn out to create a pretty damn enjoyable version of “Get Free.”
For Sony’s new segment entitled “Art & Science of the Remix,” Dillon Francis takes us through his creative process of remixing Passion Pit’s Gossamer single, “Carried Away.” The seriousness of the video is a little bit weird considering Francis’ usual joking persona, but enlightening all the same.
