Yesterday, Atlanta-based EDM duo Pyramid Scheme teamed up with local vocalist MK Ultra and released their newest progressive house collaboration called “Ghost”. Though, to be completely honest, I previously was completely unaware of Pyramid Scheme before hearing their single on SoundCloud yesterday, I’ve throughly scrutinized and enjoyed all of their work last night. MK Ultra’s vocals in “Ghost” add a perfect touch of emotion and sentimentality, while Pyramid Scheme’s indie progressive melody immediately hooks your ear. “Ghost” is being offered for free, so be sure to download it below.

New York based electropop producers Lucian and Mickey Valen are back on SoundCloud with a new collaboration. The pair re-vamped “Pistols At Dawn”, a song by the 24 year old Swedish artist Seinabo Sey, from a deep, soulful tune into an extremely catchy electro funk/bass remix (though the remix still manages to capture some of Sey’s soulfulness). The duo’s remix has a nice build, and the sample usage of Sey’s vocals is a 10/10. Be sure to follow Lucian and Mickey Valen by clicking on their names above, and definitely listen to their remix below.

Now, I know I haven’t historically been the biggest fan of trap. However, my taste is starting to change- I have, like so many others in the EDM community, begun to feel sick and tired of the usual, generic “progressive house drop”. Following the community’s trend towards new genres such as deep house/tropical house (and a generally more “relaxed” style of EDM), I’ve also looked for new genres to explore. Today I’m bringing you Unlike Pluto’s remix of Diplo’s highly popular “Revolution”. Unlike Pluto, whose real name is Armond Arabshahi, is a 23 year old songwriter/producer currently living in LA. Though I’ve only just been exposed to his work after a friend showed me this remix, I’m hooked. Unlike Pluto’s remix has already garnered an astounding 1.2 million plays on SoundCloud, but if you haven’t heard it yet, be sure to listen below and follow Unlike Pluto on SoundCloud.
Love it or hate it, but ever since the release of their mainstream hit #SELFIE, The Chainsmokers have enjoyed national recognition. However the American duo, comprised of friends Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, is not defined by their one original mainstream success. In the EDM community, the duo is not known for their original songs (like #SELFIE and Kayne). Rather, they are highly regarded for their remixes of songs like “Julian” and “Holding On to Heaven”.
Today, The Chainsmokers released their newest remix of A-Trak’s “Push”. “Push”, which was released on FIFA 15’s soundtrack, was named one of the top 5 EDM soundtracks on FIFA 15. Enjoy:
Today, Zeds Dead, the dynamic Canadian duo comprised of Dylan Mamid (aka “DC”), and Zach Rapp-Rovan (aka “Hooks”), have released a preview of their new, bass heavy, thumping remix of the originally Diplo & Skrillex produced “Jack Ü – Take Ü There (feat. Kiesza)”. After the massively successful release of their Somewhere Else EP this past July, Zeds Dead has shown no signs of letting up their production, even after 10 years in the business.
DC and Hooks are an extremely versatile duo and have produced tracks in many different EDM genres such drum and bass, hip-hop, glitch, dubstep. However, their remix of Jack Ü’s “Take Ü There” features a bass & synth heavy drop with fantastic vocals by Kiesza. While the duo has not announced when the full remix will be released (they only published a preview today), I will be sure to post it when it comes out. Listen below:
