Friz Transforms Maroon 5 & SZA’s “What Lovers Do” Into an Anthemic Dance Track

This song is a love trip.

If you don’t find this a fun remix, please re-listen, because this rendition of the radio, pop single hit “What Lovers Do” by Maroon 5 and SZA, is one to bring sunshine to any avalanche-covered town.

Though we may be in the depths of winter darkness, that doesn’t have to put a damper on the mood, and this song is just the track to fix that. Sure to be a sensation at all the bloc-parties, this remix has “Good Vibes Only” tattooed over every riff and layer of tracks incorporated in the piece. So, who’s behind the dose of joy in a bottle? None other than emerging electronic producer Friz.

Friz (neé Ryan Frizelle) was born in Seattle, Washington before moving to Los Angeles to pursue the widely known music dream. There he entered the Icon Collective, LA’s premier music production school, where he could hone his energies into. He practiced to create his electronic genre-style by piecing together elements of light synth melodies, metallic beats, and strong bass backdrops.

“I started making music four years ago. I never really did anything musical before that, so once I discovered producing I fell in love and would spend hours and hours in my room creating songs. I began DJing in college which led to playing some shows and clubs. That really took everything I was doing to another level and showed that I could really do something with my music” notes the artist of sonic distortions and intonations.

In the past, Friz had remixed Frenship’s hit single “Capsize” which racked up over 185K plays on Soundcloud alone. Soon after that release, he performed at select shows in LA such as Avalon Hollywood, thus cementing his position amidst the forefront of the crowds’ minds.

“Recently I’ve been blending pop with house music. I love how dancey house music is especially when there’s a good bassline. When you mix that with a catchy melody or vocal, you’ve got yourself a song that has some serious potential” remarks Friz.

Friz is here to offer the audience what they want to hear and how they want to hear it. He mentions to me how much he wants to give his listeners something to enjoy. “I love music that makes you move. That’s my goal with the music I make. I want to make you feel something that also makes you dance.”

Friz genuinely loves what he does, and isn’t that end point we all want? It’s amazing too, that the artist has fans that he can rely on to have his back and that already his music is beginning to resonate with people. It’s something he has started to recognize and truly appreciate. #CareerGoals. “Playing shows is one of my favorite things to do. When you’re vibing out with a crowd that’s jumping and down and dancing to your music, it’s hard not to lose your shit. There are a lot of people I notice who continually make their way out to my shows and it’s such a powerful and humbling feeling. That support means the world to me and I’m forever grateful for those people.”

2018 is here, and so is Friz with a whole new array of tracks, videos, and shows coming up soon. So be sure to stay tuned and up to date with this electro-songwriter.

“There is a lot to come in 2018. I have a ton of new originals, remixes, and collabs. We’re planning on putting on more events with my manager (Alek Blik) and I’s event company Open Doors. We’re going to be releasing a lot of video content featuring new music, friends, and dopeness. 2018 is going to be a big year and I’m really looking forward to it!”

The remixed single will have you moving regardless of the situation and brings the popular song to life in a whole new way, that actually may be better than even the original (tbh).

starRo Recreates Little Monarch’s “No Matter What” into a Funky Wonderland

 

Funk & Vibe

The dazzling indie-pop band Little Monarch just gave their single “No Matter What” a little remix makeover with the electronic stylings of producer starRo. The Tokyo-born artist recently collaborated with the trio to recreate their feel-good track and give it a new kind of energy.  The producer is not just involved with the music scene, but is also engaged in the realms of high art and street culture, food, philosophy, culture, and even has created music for gaming soundtracks. You can hear that kind of thoughtfulness in the work he has put into this song alone. The band consisting of Casey K, Lanita Smith, and Justin Andres add a new flair with this remix of their pop/rock and soul quality.

18216649_1834816756770085_4154156620530394653_o.jpg

In this remix, the single is ignited with a new kind of metallic touch, slowed down to a more seductive level, and reborn into an futuristic era. However, at the same time, it’s too difficult to really pin point the generation the song affiliates with as starRo’s touch  on this remix kind of blasts it into every pocket of sound, with high balling synths, smooth vocals, and a funky riff in between.

starRo is also known for being recognized as the Soulection producer, which makes sense why he creates such great sensual material. What’s also great is that he doesn’t do too much to the original track, but only mellows it out more, serving the viral pop track justice to its original sound. Instead, he just elevates how fun it is, and accentuates its rhythm and beat.

The remix is now available on Spotify!

Make way for this tiger

Fierce and full of elegance, this ferocious singer is sure to win your heart. There’s just no two ways about it. Her voice is fun and unique. She reminds you of the 50’s with her angelic and floral “ooo’s”, but brings you back to the 80’s with her pop beats, and then leads you to the 21st century with her modern hooks and electronic trills. Now, Bizu is really blending all worlds together creating a fusion of her own with this remix of her recent single off her 2016 A Moment of Madness album, “White Tiger”.

The remix is composed and produced by the masterful electronic female duo, Cat Carpenters, who really give the track a sudden bounce that will make it a hit in the clubs and on the streets of cement jungles and sodium lit wonderlands. They stay true to its jazzy base, but also add a dose of soul to allow the song to be dance-worthy. With Bizu’s melodic high notes and riffs, the music that Cat Carpenters provide is accentuated and dances along side Bizu’s ever-flowing vocals.

The “White Tiger” remix is hypnotic, trance-like, and beautiful. Every sound transitions sweetly into the next noise that is about to enter the song and infiltrate the soundscape. It’s a fun tune, and it’s the perfect way to end the long summer days.

Axel Mansoor’s Dreamy Remix of “Wasted My Love” by Sleeping Lion

Sleeping Lion dreams again tonight

and this time, they’re dreaming via Axel Mansoor’s recent release, “Wasted My Love”. With their spellbinding rendition of this track, we envision the song in a whole new dimension.

13331048_10207186766487368_7164994415739307027_n.jpg

With Mansoor’s original angelic vocals and ghostly falsettos, his intonations for broken hearts and unproductive time spent on love move and pull hearts in directions all over the place. In the remix, the song is only augmented into a novel electronic genre of its own. From the serene indie-pop waves, we are re-gifted a song with a new filter, layered in action, coated with shadowy, dreamy undertones, and dusted with robotic intonations. In this version of the track, it comes to life, breathing a fiery intensity erupting from the bass, through the synths, and out through the vocals and speakers. The single received recognition and was premiered by Beautiful Buzzz the day of its release.

The song was also remixed by Dulsae, in a more intense, club-like way that also offers a different perspective of and emotion from the track. Listen to that version HERE.

“Wasted this love, you wasted my love. Well, I guess it’s time to move on to the next best thing…” sings Mansoor as he enters into a post-apocalyptic whirlwind of his own melody. Imagine a heart-broken by a lover and the original version of the song being the emotions you present on the surface, but when you dig deeper, what’s truly happening inside is this remix– is this chaotic harmony, bursting into sonic orchestral destruction that takes you through the ups and downs of sensations the heart and mind is feeling at this moment.

So, take a step into this wonderland of new sound that Sleeping Lion so masterfully remixes of Axel Mansoor’s best song yet, “Wasted My Love”.

This is the artist’s electronic remix to her highly acclaimed pop single “Lone Wolf”, which released back in February of this year. The song received wide recognition and was written up by publications such as PopDust, TWIST magazine, and Next2Shine and also found on Spotify playlists like Girl Power, Top Hits 2017, and Starbucks Coffeehouse Pop.

The not your average cat lovin’ pop artist was and is inspired by artists such as Aurora, Sia, The Decemberists, Jessie J, Cruel Youth, and Childish Gambino. This wonder woman has done much in her career at such a young age. She was a classically-trained opera singer who has modeled professionally, and also acted in various theatre shows such as Dante’s Inferno, Ragtime, & Rent.

This pop star began a journey  through the theatrical world and dance, but it wasn’t until recently when she found her voice to be her greatest asset. Now signed to Siri Music Group, the artist has made space for herself in the one of the toughest sectors of the music scene and one that is ever-changing– pop and electronica.

Listen to the song now to rage on through the night!

KEYON Releases an Amazing Jazzy Remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Outside”

Feeling it on the inside and outside

The producer has really decided to show off his true musical skills in this recent remix he released today for all to hear! KEYON, a young artist from Massachusetts, remixes the renown track originally created by Calvin Harris featuring the stunning vocals of Ellie Goulding, and turns it into a masterpiece of EDM jazz. Using the real, natural voices of his instruments, he captures an authenticity in his electronic music that only some artists, such as Lido, offer. KEYON himself noted that, “I think people could respect that I make all my own samples and sounds”, he continues, “and I’m telling you…jazz is making a revolutionary comeback”.

This artist really makes us appreciate the art of musical theory with his songs, something I think many of us seemed to have forgotten after all of these days of mainstream, artificial tunes blasting through the radio.

When this remix hits 2:15, the conflict rises and the best guitar interference you will ever hear takes you down a path of intense jam-worthy freedom. It’s funny that KEYON chooses to use the raw sound of electric guitars to create the drop rather than the synths and it works so perfectly!

The song ends with a little jazzy piano riff to ease us after the stunning sound storm. The drums help guide you to the beat and march you onward into the depths of the track. The risers are well-developed and the synths similarly riff into waterfalls of sound in a downward formation– pouring into your ear drums.

The artist has a lot in store this summer as he ventures off into the music realms of his simple studio set up, and we are excited to hear what he’s got for us!

Amy Cohen Remixes Drake’s “Feel No Ways” With Her Own R&B Feels

Feel No Ways, and Yet Feeling All Of the Feels

From Newton, Massachusetts, Amy Cohen, a Boston University undergrad and artist, remixes the beautiful Drake track “Feel No Ways” into a ballad all her own. Utilizing the familiar sounds of synthesized tunes and bubbling beats, this femme fatale recreates the sounds of the OVO star and adds a classic R&B reverb.

She plans to grow her musical library as she continues to add more of her own music, but it all began with the covers and remixes. So in this recently released track, she returns to what she is known best for, the echoes of soul.

This 21-year-old intends to bring the roots of music back with a modern twist. Ever since she was a little girl, music has been the sole inspiration for her passion to create compositions. Cohen claims that “it wasn’t until she began to feel like she was losing herself, however, that she taught herself to play keyboard and really focused on creating – not just performing.” She integrates the classic emotion behind soul and R&B music to offer her listeners the raw and relatable stories interlaced within the harmonies.

16388784_10210940167567526_1280396491_o.jpg

Her musical influences include industry giants such as Kanye West and his 808s & Heartbreak as well as Frank Ocean and his project Blonde. Cohen invites her listeners to vibe with her on this journey of euphoria as the tunes & tones take you away through an endless dream. Already, she has received countless words of appraisal for her work in all areas, from songwriting, to composing, to vocalizing. She does is it all– the triple threat.

Cohen explores the realms of contemporary music, in this journey beyond the scope of music, where intimacy meets vulnerability and sophistication meets eroticism. The confidence behind every riff and line demonstrates the power and understanding she has of her talent and further credits her abilities. Even after just releasing this track, she continues to write meticulously and collaborate on projects, and is planning the release of another single very soon. But as you wait, you can find more of her fabrications on her Facebook, SoundCloud, and YouTube pages. Amidst all of this, Cohen continues to keep in consistent, close contact with her fans to let them know that she still remains the spirit behind the sound, and to always show her appreciation for the love and support.

R&B Artist Jaylien Remixes Song with Sammy Adams & Premieres On Tour

 

Prepare yourself for the remix of the season!

In an epic fabrication of sonic composition, Los-Angeles based R&B vocalist Jaylien decides to combine his talents with that of Sammy Adams to create a chill and riveting remix titled “Summer’s Over.” When artists unite, they create something that becomes an entirely new song for listeners to experience, and that is exactly what these dynamic individuals did. In their departure from the sunny summer day’s the pair tone down the vibe and turn a melody into a refreshing, mid-tempoed, and grindy-synth-filled tune. This is their farewell to the lively and vibrant summer memories and their dive head first into the autumn chill and serenity of smooth vocals backed up by power that croon to your heart and mind’s content. This single is especially captivating because it carries a soft aura about it, with light vocals and beats, but then it is also revivified and aroused by impactful trap-snares and noises, which accumulate into one consolidated record.

The entirety of this song was produced by Jaylien, himself, and its original form featured on his latest EP release from this past summer as the  leading title track. The reverbs are crisp, the bass is bomb, and the cyclical nature of the verse to chorus transition is sound. Both artists’ tonality energy meld together flawlessly.

In this atmospheric, electro hip-hop rendition of his own music, the artist constructs an entirely new sound. The song grabs you by the heart strings, takes you from your summer daydreams, and seduces you into the calmness of fall leaf-fallen days. You can listen to the song ABOVE!

In addition to the hype that already came about this re-branding and recreation, Adams & Jaylien joined forces to bring the track to life on stage while on the road for Sammy’s tour The Endless Summer Tour,  which eventually did end sadly, and arrived to its final stop. HOWEVERAdams is not ready to peace out to summer just yet. He plans to head back on tour this weekend along with R&B superstar Nelly. Check out the dates below and get your tickets HERE.
