I meant to post this at the end of June…but here it is now, my carefully curated monthly playlist of all the best remixes I’ve come across. As always, it’s super eclectic, with artists ranging from Drake and James Blake to Gorillaz and Daft Punk, then winding down with more chill stuff.

It’s just shy of 2 hours long and makes for a pretty fun, varied listening experience. Check it out here:

Aaliyah- Rock The Boat (Wantigga Remix)

I never tire of hearing new remixes of this classic early 00’s R&B track by the late, great Aaliyah. This one definitely adds an enticing new flavor that makes it well worth listening to. It’s a little more funky and uptempo than the original, and Wantigga’s fresh beats enhance Aaliyah’s sexy, seductive vocals and lyrics in the best possible way.

Check it out.

Two Awesome Covers: Banks does Aaliyah and London Grammar do INXS

Banks just released an acoustic cover of Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody?” and it’s honestly one of the best cover songs I’ve heard in ages. Spot on, and the girl can SING.

Also check out London Grammar’s cover of INXS’s “The Devil Inside,” now only available as a short clip used on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” season 4 trailer. I’m sure we’ll be seeing the full version soon.
