Kamil from Azerbaijan continues to earn my respect from thousands of miles away. His jovial, hopeful outlook has given him success in remixing a lot of tracks where others fail. I’m now going to specifically wait for Kamil remixes when new dope anthems get dropped, because I know that there’s going to be some fun, funky remix coming. Something not too serious, that wears colors other than black & you can dance to. This is a strong competitor for the best DJ Snake mix I’ve ever heard, so if diplo, Major Lazer, DJ Snake or Mo want to discover this guy and get him on a Mad Decent tour that would be excellent. Get at the rest of his tracks, especially the stupendous Disclosure remix.
This reworking of some Lana Del Rey-style vocals out of MØ by Phazz is freaking great. This is the kind of indie + bass collaborative efforts that I think the ears of Americans should be hearing. The vocal modulations mesh with the lush, bassy soundscape perfectly. This tune has a lot to teach indie artists about arrangement & element usage. Choosing the dozen synthy effects in this track must have been difficult, but the decisions were spot in. Check out Phazz‘s stuff and the artist with the character I can’t type.
