Disclosure- “Help Me Lose My Mind” (Mazde Remix)

This remix reminds me a lot of Flume’s reworking of Lorde’s “Tennis Court,” and that’s a good thing, as it’s one of the best remixes that has been released this year. Mazde builds the track up to a heavy, but uplifting, synthy beat, which makes it instantly infectious, but with a sound and style that’s quite different from a lot of the more popular stuff out there.

Disclosure- “Help Me Lose My Mind” (SOHN remix)

The level of artistry and thought that went into this remix is impressive. It starts off completely stripped down and gradually builds from chill minimal beats into a production that is intricately layered and carefully detailed. SOHN adds in a brief burst of pulsating, sparkling beats toward the finale that lend a powerful sense of urgency, lust and longing to the vocals, and he wraps it all up in full circle fashion with a chilled, subdued closing.

This is genius at work, and I cannot stop listening.

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.
