More often than not when Kygo releases a new song people stop what they’re doing and take am immediate listen to. And his latest is ‘Nothing Left’, featuring Will Heard , a relatively unknown, yet, very talented singer from London.
On ‘Nothing …’ Kygo sticks to his tropical guns but incorporates a deep house bassline to give the dainty original some grit. It’s yet unclear if this title will top ‘Stole The Show’ or ‘Firestone’, but given the modicum of creativity and additional star value, we don’t believe the current single has the gusto to go the distance.
Having just released his remix of ‘Stronger‘ by Arty – as a free download via Soundcloud – Mat Zo states “Since this got leaked I thought I might as well post it on Soundcloud.” And this pleasant surprise has perked up the ears of many a listener.
The energy-infused, progressive trance remix reps an incredibly euphoric tone perfect for all the bells and whistles of confetti cannons. Previously programmer at several major events, including Above & Beyond (at Madison Square Garden), the re-work has been welcomed with overwhelming audience support.

There’s tropical house .. and then there’s tropical house! Fortunately for us this Taylor Wise remix of ‘Chocolate‘ by The 1975 falls into the latter category and this summery single is a fantastic fit for, both, poolside relaxation or a driving playlist, given it’s light tone yet upbeat tempo.
More often than not a producer remixes a classic because he/she is a fan of the original. However such is not the case this go-round as Taylor explicitly points out – via Soundcloud – that he wasn’t a “huge fan of Chocolate when it came out and wanted to give the track a different feel than the Indie-Pop vibe the original had.”
Despite his candor, Wise does an impressive job with this tropical production.

The song’s lyrics describe the narrator’s discovery of personal strength following an devastating breakup, delivered with increasing confidence and backed by a stirring instrumental accompaniment. One of the most famous disco songs of all time and Gaynor’s biggest hit to this day, ‘ … Survive’ reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the UK Singles Chart on consecutive weeks.
Years prior to MTV a promotional video was filmed in 1979 at the New York discothèque called Xenon. Sheila Reid-Pender of Harlem, NY is the featured skater in the video from the skating group, The Village Wizards, though Gloria was not present during the taping of the rollerskating segment.
It’s mashups like these that can make listeners think, “How did I not think of doing that myself?’ The Weeknd has become one of the most sought after artists after hits like this, ‘Often‘ ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ and ‘Love Me Harder’ with Ariana Grande.
We not guarantee that you’ll have this jam on repeat all week but you can grab your personal copy right here, right now!

Matthew Koma‘s, ‘SFR’ or ‘So F***in’ Romantic’, has been remixed by Austin-based producer Tim Gunteralthough the original has yet to be released. Perhaps Koma’s team plans on revealing the record in an unorthodox manner by unveiling the remixes prior.
Gunter structures the vocals into a chill trap blueprint, keeping the energy warm and low-key. And if you’re a fan of this remix (below) we highly recommend you listen to his Mario remix of ‘Let Me Love You‘. The song is about to surpass 6,000,000 Soundcloud plays and has proven itself to be the ultimate throwback!
