  • GIVERS – Up Up Up (Salad Remix) MP3

    Sure,  his name is Salad and he occasionally tags his songs on soundcloud under the genre “Healthy,” but this producer from Australia is much more than a funny name with a quirky sense of humor. Having first heard of him when he did a remix for Jubilants’ track “Antics,” I instantly noticed Salad’s ability to take relatively popish tracks and beef them up to  sound a ...

  • Ladyhawke – Black, White And Blue (Nile Delta Remix) MP3

    Kiwi songstress Ladyhawke appears to be gearing up for the release of her latest album “Anxiety,”  which will come out  in Australia and New Zealand on March 16th. One of the songs off the album, “Black, White And Blue,” seems to be causing quite the stir in the blogoshphere lately due to remixes by Punks Jump Up and The Big Pink. Just when I thought edits of the track couldn...

  • Clock Opera – Once And For All (D/R/U/G/S Remix) MP3

    Clock Opera – Once And For All (D/R/U/G/S/ Remix) Manchester producer D/R/U/G/S is back with a brand-new remix of fellow Moshi Moshi signees Clock Opera. Titled “Once And For All,” D/R/U/G/S takes the song and masterfully subdues it with his familiar use of euphoric synth, mystical samples, and forceful yet never overpowering bass. Creating something that sounds like a mixture between trance, chill...

  • Disco Friday #9 MP3

    Wow, what a week it has been not only for nu-disco, but for music in general. Last week when we last posted, Whitney Houston was still alive and Skrillex had yet to win a mind-blowing 3 Grammys. At times like this, in an ever changing musical landscape, I’m glad that I can always rely on a consistent source of nu-disco to get  me through the weekend. In this week’s edition, I’ve decided to inc...

  • Onra – Perfect(ed) Match MP3

    Originally released in November of 2010, Onra has been nice enough to put a slightly tweaked version of his groove “Perfect Match” on soundcloud for free! Overwrought with funky basslines and vocal samples that simply ooze sensuality, this track will conjure up feelings of romance (and other things) as soon as you listen to. Literally, every day is Valentine’s Day with this baby! Onra â...

  • Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc. (Professor Kliq Remix) MP3

    Professor Kliq is an electronic producer from Chicago, Illinois and yesterday he decided to release a brand-new remix for the Gorillaz’ track “Feel Good Inc.” Although I’m not too familiar with his sound, Professor Kliq had me from the beginning when he wrote in the track’s description that he’s not trying to “compete with the direction that a lot of dance and electronic ...

  • Christian Strobe – Midnight Call (Keenhouse Remix) MP3

    Yesterday, Christian Strobe was generous enough to share this joyous remix Binary producer Keenhouse has put together for him. Completely free and remarkably catchy, this track features a helpful dosage of “sunny house chords” that will instantly transform your mood into something that’s much more primed for the weekend! On my umpteenth listen of this tune, I have to say that it’s exactly...

  • Disco Friday #8 MP3

    Usually when I put together a post such as Disco Friday, I frequently select tracks that are remixes or edits of other popular songs. Although I have no qualms with doing so, it seems that people tend to appreciate tracks that are more creative in origin. Well, if you’re one of those people, I got a handful of brand-new originals from some of the most, promising breakout producers in the nu-disco scene right n...

  • Le Youth – Fever (Flubba Remix) MP3

    When I first heard this track from Flubba I was sorta shocked. Even though the producer is only 19-years-old, I’ve heard him produce everything from hip-hop instrumentals, to nu-disco, all the way to moombahton. Curiously though, I don’t recall ever listening to any electro-house from him, especially anything that could be described as exuding a big-room atmosphere. Well that all changed when I heard...

    When we did our feature on Binary Entertainment last August, a band that particularly caught our attention was the electronic, pop duo FLASHLIGHTS, who consist of  band members Ethan Converse and Sam Martin Rande. Although they’re no longer with the label (for reasons I do not know), FLASHLIGHTS are planning to release a brand-new EP as unsigned artists. Called “So Close To Midnight,â€...

  • Bjork – Hyberballad (Great Skies Remix) MP3

    Taking what most people consider to be their favorite Bjork song of all-time, Great Skies has eloquently constructed a remix that compliments the Icelandic songstress’ 90′s classic “Hyberballad.” Not trying to go against the sound of the original, Great Skies decides to only make subtle alterations to the track by adding in his signature dub sound to the bassline and beefing up the percuss...

  • Grouplove – Tongue Tied (Gigamesh Remix) MP3

    One of the great things about listening to music is seeing – and more importantly, hearing – artists progress throughout their careers. Lots of producers have made incredible tracks here and there, but only some manage to make music that you listen to over and over again. I remember the first time I heard Gigamesh: it was in the period where I had just moved back to Amsterdam and was starting university...

  • New Navy – Zimbabwe (RUFUS Remix) MP3

    Reaching #67 on Triple J’s Hot 100 for 2011, New Navy’s track “Zimbabwe” has caused quite the stir in the music scene for last couple of months. A song producers can’t seem to get enough of, this single has already been remixed by the likes of Flume, Lancelot, and Distrackt.  Now Sydney collective RüFüS have decided to take their shot at editing the track by adding in t...

  • Miike Snow – Paddling Out (Le Crayon Dub Rework) MP3

    It’s not often that someone manages to release two tracks which we here at Upside Sounds classify as must-haves in the space of a week. It happens even less in the space of 3 days. Earlier this week, we were loving Le Crayon’s collaboration with compatriot Oxford, remixing Metronomy. Today, the man has topped that. Lovely Swedes Miike Snow released Paddling Out last week as the first single from their s...

  • Demon – You Are My High (Kartell Remix) MP3

    I know I say this way too much, but I love it when artists cleverly play with vocals. With sampling only five words in “Demon,” Kartell is able to create an emotional track that locks you in. It has awesome downtempo that straddles the line between a classy cocktail beat and a soothing jam you play for yourself on repeat. If you are anything like me, you’re brain will be racing in the b...

  • Sun Glitters – They Don’t Want to Let You Know (Sumsun Remix) MP3

    Sumsun is the musical project of West Palm Beach native Judson Rodgers and if I had to describe his sound in one word, I would probably go with “fluid.” Like the pristine waters he’s originally from, the notes that Sumsun pieces together flow similar to waves gently skimming over the coast of a beach. Although their patterns and frequencies are subject to change, their rhythms and motions hav...

  • Metronomy – Heartbreaker (Le Crayon & Oxford Remix) MP3

    I know, I know. You must be thinking to yourself, “Not another Metronomy remix!” But before you place your judgments, I suggest you reserve them until you actually listen to this edit French producers Le Crayon and Oxford managed to put together. Barring the original title of the track, everything about this remix exudes the sense that one is currently experiencing romance rather than having it abruptlyÂ...

    My mom always told me that it’s quality, not quantity that truly matters. So even though I only have six tracks for you this week, all of them are top-notch and probably deserve to be posted individually. From Kreap‘s Dub mix to Yelle’s track “Que Veux-tu,” to Go Go Bizkitt!’s brand-new original “Swatch It,” each track here is guaranteed to get your heart rate going ...

  • Arcade Fire – The Suburds (Ripperton Edit) MP3

    I don’t know if it’s due to the shitty weather of London, but lately I’ve started to get into a lot of house music that’s slightly deeper and more down tempo than the stuff I usually listen to. There’s just something about it’s characteristically laid-back melodies that seem to match my mood at the moment. A perfect example of such songs are Ripperton‘s edit of Arcad...

From the German city of Hamburg, Oliver Rado is an up and coming electronic  producer who seems to have a knack for crafting the same sort of smooth and exotic downtempo melodies that made us fall in love with other German artists such as Hannes Fischer and Essáy. Taking Little Dragon’s heart-rending song “Twice,” Ra...
