@AdamFostermusic has created a powerhouse ‘Dialect edit’ for “Pigalle” by @DJSnake and @weareMoksi

DJ SNAKE x MOKSI, “Pigalle” (Adam Foster Dialect edit)

Adam Foster’s Dialect edit of “Pigalle” by DJ Snake and Moksi, which originally appears on DJ Snake’s new album Encore, is a powerhouse dance floor storm all unto itself.  It heavily relies on early 90’s house – I’m thinking of Sound Factory’s “Good Time” particularly – and with lots of bass and some fine production moments which isolate some of the instrumentation, Adam Foster’s edit of “Pigalle” is not quite what you would expect but will be more than welcome in a crunchy set of deep house.  You can download it for free at the link above.

As good as the original: @officialKoni does it again with rework of @DJSnake’s “Let Me Love You” (featuring @EmmaHeesters)

DJ SNAKE, “Let Me Love You” (Koni remix featuring Emma Heesters)

Fresh off of the immediate viral success of his remix/cover of “Cold Water” by Major Lazer, Koni follows it up with his take on “Let Me Love You” by DJ Snake.  Here he substitutes Justin Bieber’s vocal for Dutch YouTuber Emma Heesters, and quite honestly (coming from me, as covers do need to dazzle me), it’s as good as the original and therefore requires your attention.  Putting the wrong voice in a cover of a brand new tune will sink a song, and Koni always carefully curates his tracks to ensure positive results.  The melody gracefully lilts along, making it a great choice as an end-of-summer-romance track.  Lend your ears and download it for free above.

Koni also brought us a recent favourite remix of mine, which reached #15 on the BILLCS Top 30.  Check out my original post about “Burn Fast” by Bryce Fox 🙂 right here.

#AlexSchulz and @KisoArmic envision @DJSnake’s “Middle” (featuring Kayla Diamond (@kayrachdi)as a romantic summery anthem

ALEX SCHULZ & KISO featuring KAYLA DIAMOND, “Middle” (free DL)

I say often that I’m not fond of covers, but there are some fine ones about lately.  Normally I’m also not fond when a cover takes too many liberties with song, sending it in a totally different direction from the original, making me think wait a minute….  But envisioning “Middle” as a summery romantic anthem is totally a good thing courtesy of Alex Schulz & Kiso.  This is a well-done, laid back tropically-seasoned mix with a splendidly hot Kayla Diamond vocal that is completely unlike the DJ Snake original.  This rendition of “Middle” is more innovative than simply trying hard to be different from the original.  It goes down smoothly and should do so equally in a club mix.  Get it for free at the link above.
