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.
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.
Much like the XX, London Grammar remixes never get old. I always love hearing new reinterpretations of their songs, and there are some great ones on here, Particularly Arty’s “Hey Now” remix and RAC’s take on “Strong.”
Stream the EP here.
Ta-Ku lends a darker, more downbeat sound to Disclosure’s “Help Me Lose My Mind,” which provides the perfect backdrop for Hannah Reid’s gorgeous vocals.
Ta-Ku is a master at remixing, and he definitely proves it with this latest one. Hear for yourself:
This remix starts off all nice and chill and subdued, just like the original song….but just wait for the beat to drop. Whoa- SO good! Tourist did an amazing job with this one. There are so many London Grammar remixes out there and his definitely stands out among the crowd.
Check out this awesome, chill remix of London Grammar’s “Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me?” Chilled out, late night vibes. If you love XX remixes, you’ll definitely want to hear this.
And speaking of XX remixes, I also uploaded a playlist full of them to soundcloud. Enjoy.
I’m always on the lookout for awesome remixes and just happened to stumble upon these 2 gems: Hayden James’ remix of Rufus’ “Sundream” and Bonobo’s remix of London Grammar’s “Hey Now.” Perfect if you like chill beats.

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.
