“Learn to dance in the storm so when life hands you a stormy weather, you just glide through it”

This week’s best EDM tracks feature some super stellar remixes of already awesome songs. I’m stoked Chromeo is finally back making tunes again, and this Boys Noize remix of their latest single, “Sexy Socialite,” that starts off the playlist is humongous. Be sure to make it all the way through for the massive collaboration between Baauer and RL Grime.
Party on Wayne. Party on Garth.
Recently, Just Blaze and Baauer teamed up to drop the massive, dubby “Higher.” Two of the most influential producers in their respective genres, this track had big expectations and, in my opinion, delivered. It’s interesting seeing Just Blaze dabble in the heavier electronic scene–only one more sign that hip hop is moving that direction.
The two spoke to Pitchfork about the collaboration, which you can see below. I think Baauer really sums up the effect of the collaboration in that Just Blaze comes at it with a mastery in beatmaking, and Baauer comes at it with a unique catalog of sound. The combination of the two is very, very dope, and the video and the full song can both be streamed below.
