We love a good remix over here at Beautiful Buzzz. Other music blogs can sometimes be picky about their selections and refuse to post remixes, but we just love it when a producer reimagines a classic track and infuses some new flavor. It’s especially great when they’re able to preserve the essence of what made the original awesome while simultaneously introducing a whole new aesthetic. This latest reimagining comes from two artists who are no stranger to BB: indie soul crooner Tim Atlas and electronic producer Christofi. Both pals from California, Atlas decided to enlist Christofi to deliver his own dance-oriented take on “Compromised” — Atlas’ most popular original to date which has racked up over 13M streams on Spotify. The remix adds lush chords, toe-tapping percussion, and a bright synth lead that readies this track for any dance floor or festival stage. You’ll definitely want to add this one to your party playlists and blast it at your next pregame (or 3am afterparty to annoy the hell out of your roommates if you live in a house like mine).
Ahh lookie lookie who's been in the kitchen whippin up some tasty treats for us. Oh and it's a StéLouse remix too?? Many yummies in our BB tummies. Christofi's been slanging stellar tracks over the last year, and played a killer set at our SXSW showcase a few short weeks ago. His remix takes "Been So Long" off for a nice bike ride over some bricky melodic bass cobblestone. Christofi adds a bit of gritty distortion to the tune amping it up for higher pallets and it feels oh so good. You can nab this as a free download here.
Elohim seems to be the hot ticket right now. If you haven't heard her new tune with our homies Louis the Child "Love is Alive" you gotta get on dat. She's got this other ya knoww freaking charming original "Hallucinating" that's been on repeat in my headphones recently, and I was super stoked when Christofi sent over his version. If you're not too familiar with Christofi yet, you should start to get acquainted. He's steadily building a great catalogue of tunes that are legitimately unique from track to track. His recent "Temptation (feat. Ayer)" was a total feel good jam in much the same way as his version of "Hallucinating." I didn't think it was possible to make Elohim's original more upbeat and fun, but Christofi has found that lightning in a bottle. Pretty much all of Christofi's catalogue is great so I recommend checking all his tunes out on Spotify here. You can also download this remix for free here.
Gotta give a little shout-out to MOONZz who had her EP release show last night and it was sickkk. She's got a bright future ahead can't wait to see her ascent. While I was there I happened to run into Jacob and Cole from Opia and we ended up chatting for a minute. This remix from Christofi was already in my queue for a review, but it's weird how life sends you coincidences sometimes! So now I'm even more excited to support this cut which is already climbing its way up the Hype Machine chart. "Shadow Dances" is already a fire hit check out our review of the original here, but Christofi has added a real touch of brilliance to the tune, spicing it up and making it into even more of a dance floor ready jam. With smatterings of guitar, pumping synths, a deep kick and groovy bass all coming together below Opia's soulful falsetto vocals, what more could you want in a disco, electro pop gem! Christofi has been throwin flame recently and we fully expect this heat streak to continue. You can download this fo FREE right here.
Christofi has been on my radar for a bit. First when we premiered his and FEiN's discolicious tune "Marry You On the Dancefloor" last Valentine's day, and I've since been seeing his name float around LA at some great shows. When he sent me "Temptation (feat. AYER)," I gave it a spin and was immediately thrilled to get a post together. The lushious sunshine house piano, upbeat synth stabs, melodic vocal chops, and AYER's smooth vocals combine into a 100% summer dance floor heater! The track grooves, dips and jives along with a joyous momentum that spurs you to nod your head, tap your toes, jump out of your seat, and dance around the room! The summer's not over yet folks, and Christofi is keeping the summer vibes going strong! You can nab this jam as a free download here.
Alright y'all - it's almost everyone's favorite day of the year! That day where we can all be loved and love somebody .... and celebrate that love with expensive gifts to validate just how strongly we feel about each other! Oh goodie!! You might have detected the underlying layer of sarcasm there - I in fact hate Valentine's Day and refuse to celebrate it, but that does not mean you can't! If you're thinking about what to give your loved one this year, how about the gift of music? LA producer Christofi teamed up with FEiN and made this super discolicious track "Marry You On The Dance Floor" and if was your girlfriend, this is what I would want! I am loving that this track was created when these legends were joking around in the studio coming up with cheesy love song lyrics ... and it evolved into this great nu-disco track that is gonna make you shake what your mama gave you! Just say "I Do!" Swoop this as a free download HERE!
