There’s one thing so intriguingly uplifting about this remix of Above & Beyond‘s “Happiness Amplified” with Richard Bedford. Josep takes the unique’s infectious melody and amplifies it (pardon the pun) with a guitar riff that provides a complete new stage to an already unbelievable observe.

After delivering “good time” in September with Zak Downtown, the New York artist returns in full pressure to shore up the complete EP the lighthearted “coronary heart dance.” This one is highlighted by spunky horn stabs and an irresistibly groovy beat. Spencer Ludwig lends his vocals to the EP’s second observe, launching “coronary heart dance” into its full funky potential.
Hidden Face isn’t messing round on his newest items of labor.

A mid-song interlude takes a break from percussion to ship a smooth-gliding melody earlier than then ramping again up right into a speedy drum & bass rhythm.
This. Goes. So. Hard. Known for his well-crafted soundscapes, Au5 takes on Detroit industrial artist Celldweller‘s “Eon.” This seven-minute enterprise rattles the ribcage with its grinding dubstep components, intensified by Celldweller’s screamo interludes. Fondly dubbed “metalstep” by a SoundCloud commenter, this classification appears to suit this heavy hybrid completely. Both artists’ otherworldly types mesh extremely on this remix, highlighting the perfect of every of their skills. Color me impressed.
