After only just discovering this young and talented London producer by the name of Yemi Olagbaiye, I’m pleased to announce he’s offering up a free remix of another favourite act of ours, Submotion Orchestra. A few hours had passed before I came across his last experimental production – I was high and bored of sifting through the piles of uninspired electronic beats. Maybe those factors contributed to being blown away by that piece of production, or maybe I was blown away because of the uniqueness of Yemi’s production skills. A combination of the two. Anyway, check out this little jazzy remix and cop it free below.
There’s no question, in my mind, that Ed Sheeran has a talent, but it’s nice to perk up his tracks a little with a good old fashioned remix. You have to give this one a little second to kick in and sound decent, but once Rudimental’s dubstep take on ‘Lego House’ takes hold, it’s actually alright. Cop it for free below.
The final episode of The Producers has been delivered this week and concludes with musician and producer Jakwob. He brings singer Jetta and long time collaborator Rocky NTi into the fold at Red Bull Studios in London. Jakwob’s remixes for Ellie Goulding and Little Boots shot him to fame, though remixing isn’t what he’s restricted to: “…before all this I was playing in metal bands and jazz bands… it’s a bit alien to me to be behind a booth just playing CDs.”
Alongside this episode, Jakwob, a.k.a. James Jacob, is giving away from his album a free track called ‘Let It Fall’. Cop it here.

It wasn’t long back that SBRTKT shared his edit of Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinking About You’, and only a few hours ago did he share this little beaut via his Soundcloud page. Wait for that drop about 1min 45s in. It sounds as if it’s a whole new track. Big!
There’s a couple of remixes from Mak & Pasteman’s debut EP on Sounds Of Sumo that have caught my attention. The EP as a whole projects a twisted take on a UK funky vibe, with twangs of garage and dubstep, all underlined by its dark and heavy attitude. Common production traits run throughout the genre-defying EP, such as funky bass and chopped up vocals, all of which allow the tracks to run from one to the next in natural succession. Each original track has a stand out remix attached to it. On ‘Chakra’, CDBL gives the track a dance floor edge, keeping that dark undertone amid the bells and jumpy beat; Lancaster duo (and newsicmoos fave) Bondax do what they do naturally and add an airy, spacious feel, lightening the load of ‘Heat’; and our stand out is a remix by Click of ‘Get With The Program’, which is a housey affair with classic party vibes and delectable use of keys.

If German techno is your thang, then this Friday’s Warehouse Project in Manchester is the definitive night for you. The Store Street venue will play host to Ostgut Ton, a label that is responsible for some of the biggest techno releases of the past few years. This is the first time the crew will take over Warehouse Project all night, with headline sets from world renowned Berghain residents Marcel Dettman and Ben Klock. This is the final call for the last handful of tickets for this night.
