Life Sim calls itself a “an international community of DJs, joining forces to redesign life itself.” Today, they have unveiled an absolutely captivating and stunning instrumental song “IDL” through London’s PC Music. With the unveiling, they have also shared a remix by Thy Slaughter and a video made up of movie clips directed by Daniel Swan. Swan says of the video, “drifting towards earth and through the blockbuster emotions threaded through it, the video for ‘IDL’ is made up of single clips from a rainbow of random post-y2k motion pictures.”

MICK + Leon Bridges Coming Home To Texas Remix Album

The new “Coming Home To Texas” is a bold, and fun, move from soul revivalist Leon Bridges. Bridges teamed up with veteran Brooklyn-based producer MICK (formerly known as Mick Boogie) to recreate seven songs from Bridges’ “Coming Home” album.

Bridges and MICK tapped Chi Duly, Chris Rockaway, Donnie Houston, Hasan Insane, Jett I. Masstyr and TedyP for new production, and they also turned to Texas natives Bun B and Slim Thug for guest verses.

Dornik released his self-titled debut LP last week via PMR Records (available here). While we are really enjoying that album, the remixes have been just as, if not more compelling with the latest coming from collective Jungle giving an edit to his latest single “Stand In Your Line.” It follows up a fantastic reworking of “Drive” by BADBADNOTGOOD.

Premiere: Listen to Gallant’s “Weight In Gold” Remixed by Ta-ku

If we were to name some of the breakout acts of the last year, Columbia, Maryland-native, Los Angeles-based singer Gallant would be at or near the top of that list. He has even landed a supporting spot for Sufjan Stevens’ upcoming tour dates. After introducing himself to the world with 2014’s Zebra EP, his latest song “Weight In Gold” might be his best work yet, even landing as Zane Lowe’s inaugral “World Exclusive” on his Beats 1 program. Today, we have Australian producer Ta-ku deconstructing, then building the song back up with sharper synths and cuts falling underneath the soulful vocals. Find both the reworking and original below.

Premiere : Listen to Alpine’s “Foolish” Remixed by Hopium

Melbourne outfit Alpine have their new LP, Yuck, out on June 16th via Votiv Records in the US and June 12th via Ivy League Records in the UK and Australia. The first reveal from it was the elegantly crafted “Foolish” giving off jet-setting vibes appropriate for blasting in the backdrop of a tropical resort or a fashion runway. Everything about it down to the video screams luxury.

Today, we share with you a reworking of the previously mentioned “Foolish” from another act based out of Melbourne, Hopium. If the original was made for bright lights and sunshine, this new interpretation is at place in a dimly lit nightclub. Gone are the delicate elements replaced by heavier beats and darker synths flipping the complexion of the song to something almost sinister. Listen below.
