This week’s playlist comes in hard with a slew of standout remixes ranging all across the genre-sphere from MK, R3HAB, Sullivan King, and more. Amongst the remixes, ETC! ETC! and Whyel team up for their hilariously-titled “It’s not a phase MOM!”, punk-pop remix of Dillon Francis. Next, rising newcomer, Electric Mantis, captures our attention with his wavy original, “Lying & Loving,” with Mothica. House star, Madison Mars, joins Tiesto’s Musical Freedom imprint for a extraterrestrial-tinged original, “Magneto.” Finally, Lido takes a step back to his original, sporadic future bass stylings in a creative remix of Peking Duk.
The Heat of the Week: L. Doblado – Lie Alone (16 Bit Lolitas Remix)
Anjunadeep rising force, 16 Bit Lolitas, certainly do not let up on the gas pedal towards the end of the year. Orchestrating a gorgeous, synth-driven remix of L. Doblado’s “Lie Alone,” the Dutch duo undoubtedly prove their strength and prowess in the deep house world.
