I have one rule- don't remix Zeppelin. Anyone, and anything else is up for grabs, but that doesn't mean it's an easy feat. For example, America's ultimate sad girl, Lana Del Rey...not easy to flip. Her charmingly smoky vocals, and avant-garde depression- it works. But Moving Castle's Valentine, and multi-instrumentalist Rob Araujo tackled a Lana remix with a swift swagger. The original track, "Lust For Life" featuring The Weeknd just got a chrome makeover, and a taste of the future. Light up your square, Lana, it's impressive. The co-remix heeds elements of future bass, glitch funk, and uses bouncy production to hollow out a landscape for Lana, and The Weeknd's grammy award winning vocals to continue to shine. This track goes up, down, and side to side yet remains strictly, and intentionally composed. This "Lust For Life" remix is far out enough to be the future of indie-electronic, and approachable enough to remind you of the most witchy woman in the game right now.
I mean ... what more can I possibly say about k?d ... I feel like I've said it all yet, I can't say enough! Every track this young producer drops is fucking fire! This is 100% our future super star, the future of electronic music! Drawing vibes from current heroes like Flume and Rezz, k?d delivers his epic remix of "Starboy ft. Daft Punk" by The Weeknd for our listening pleasure ... and I am swooped off to my happy place! Man, this is everything! What's even more great is that you can grab a free download HERE! You and me k?d ... homies for life!
It's been such a blast watching KRANE come up over the past few years. This Bay Area producer caught our attention on the local level, and now he's making big moves nationally, carving out his much deserved spot in that coveted group of young creative electronic music makers who are changing the game! I'm stoked for this next premiere from KRANE - packed full of that deep grimy bass vibe we love he crushed this remix of "Party Monster" by The Weeknd. Legend in the making right here - get into this one kids and grab a free download HERE!

Sometimes we have to take good news with some bad. I always prefer good news first so I'll start with this epic track! Get your ears on this brand spankin' new Kayliox bootleg of The Weeknd's "Low Life ft. Future." We start with a spicy lead synth line above the beat when everything chills out to make room for The Weeknd's incredible pipes. We're quickly brought back up into a snarling synth drop that's groovy af. This track is moody in such a good way, making a dance floor heater out of the original. Now to the bad news... : (. We just found out that Matt and Francis have decided to part ways. Francis will continue with the Kayliox moniker while Matt will explore a new musical journey. Sorry to hear about the split guys, but we'll be here to support in whichever way the future brings! Grab this as a free dl here.
How can we resist another Weeknd cover remix, especially when it's from a talented young producer like JR Nelson! He may be new around these parts, but we are loving his future soul sound and kinda think he's dreamy! His version of "The Hills ft. Amory" is light with synthy beats and airy vocals! There's so much sexiness here too ... so saucy .....so good! Really looking forward to seeing more awesome things from JR Nelson this year! You can swoop this track HERE for free! Get into this kids!
It's a sad day in the music industry ... we are all mourning the death of David Bowie! An artist who brought so much inspiration to all of our lives .... he will be greatly missed! This weeks Buzzz Box is dedicated to this legend who helped shape my love and passion for music. RIP!
One thing I have always said is that I am definitely not a music journalist! Beautiful Buzzz was created as an outlet where I can tell my friends about all the great music I come across - and over the past few years we've grown into a fun place where people can find new tracks and listen to my stories! This Best Of 2015 list is personal; it's a combination of tracks I loved and great moments I had working with the artists over the past year - whether it was through the blog, at one of my Beautiful Buzzz shows, or just a night out on the town!! Enjoy!!
