It has been a big week for the creator of our favorite song from last year, London’s Shura. First, her latest soft pop anthem “2Shy” was covered by Mumford & Sons, now she has shared a reworking of the same song by none other than drummer Stella Mozgawa of favorite, Warpaint. This version turns the song into what feels like an impromptu percussion-driven jam session reminiscent of Warpaint’s live show. Listen below.

We are always checking out our inbox to see what our friend Loveless, aka the electronic project of Oli Chang of High High’s, has cooking. His latest is a reworking of Ashanti’s “Unfoolish” off her 2002 debut self-titled album that featured Notorious B.i.G. It is also shared the same sample as Biggie’s “One More Chance” remix from DeBarge’s 1983 song “Stay with Me”. Oli’s version flips the original on its back taking it into a completely different direction that only be called a dance floor banger. Expect a series of singles and remixes from Loveless throughout 2015 and keep up with his dance parties over at his facebook. Find the remix along with a the Spring Fling Mixtape it is a part of below.

Janet Jackson is one of the major artists that does not get enough credit for her influence on a lot of what is popular in music currently. Regardless, LA production maestros Classixx offer a little reminder unveiling a rework of her song “Pleasure Principle” using bootleg production from Shep Pettibone’s a capella version as sort of a Valentine’s Day gift to their fans. The duo are currently hard at work on their follow-up to 2013’s fantastic Hanging Gardens. Listen below.

Two of the names that bubbled up to the surface in 2014 were New York duo ASTR and London producer et aliae, so it seems appropriate that they would connect up on this remix of “Operate”. The production on this one twinkles as bright as the stars in the artwork slowly lulling you into a state of pillowy enchantment. Expect to hear more of both in 2015, especially et aliae show recently signed with one of our favorite labels, Cascine. Listen below.

ZHU reworks his song “Paradise Awaits” with some extra bounce in the bass and brings DC rapper Goldlink for some versus. Goldlink’s flow pairs perfectly with the funky beat that has us taking a trip back to the ’90s, especially with that Sisqó “Thong Song” reference. We can only hope this leads to more collabs between both parties because this is straight gold. Listen below.

Song : Shura : “Indecision” (Jungle Remix)

Today, she gave a remix of the latter from act that used 2014 as a launching-pad, the collective Jungle. Stream below.
