"You Could Have Had It All..."

Posted on the 07 March 2011 by Pelski
 NYC's Cousin Cole has put together a stuttering, percussive remix of Adele. It has all the ratatat rhythmic swagger of a UK funky production, but a little more stripped to give the centerpiece - those stunning, yearning vocals - room to breathe. As much as Jamie XX's remix is nice - and it's been getting nods from just about everyone - the punchy drums and surging bass here fit perfectly with the original's magnificent, rising sense of drama:. Thanks go to our friend Tony over at Slutty Fringe for this one:

Koreless is a Welsh 18 year old whose productions fall tentatively into the dubstep camp, but with a keen focus on atmosphere and melody. A gently bobbing synthline is cut up by an echoing snare on 'Up Down Up Down'. Utterly captivating (feel free to donate to support the free-release on fledgling label Pictures Music):
Koreless - Up Down Up Down [pelski highly recommends]
Koreless provides a typically sparse arrangement of light-footed 2-step on his remix of Jacques Greene. The vox'ed diva sample floats atop a sea of compressed hi-hats, a gentle him of white noise and some deep clicks 'n' clacks. Sublime stuff:
Jacques Greene - The Look (Koreless Remix)
Ill Blu's remix of Hot Chip dropped last year and it's a stormer. Coming on like Bassjacker's 'Klambu' in the opening few seconds it quickly ushers in those shuffling beats. With flutters of hollowed-out tropical percussion, the whole thing sounds like a marriage between UK Funky and Balearic house, sunny and ecstatic:
Hot Chip - I Feel Better (Ill Blu Mix) [pelski highly recommends]
Kingdom brings a jittery drum workout to Jacques Greene's r'n'b sampler. Yes, it doesn't differ from the original a great deal, but that's why they call it an edit..:

Jacques Greene - Tell Me (Kingdom Edit) [pelski highly recommends]
Throwing Snow burst onto the scene last year with the highly acclaimed 'Un Vingt/Cronos'. Since, he has put his mutated 2-step touch to Gold Panda's 'Snow & Taxis' and now to Brixton's PhOtOmachine. It's punchy, cut-up 2-step with a slightly off-kilter edge. Keeps your eyes on Throwing Snow, big things are predicted:
PhOtOmachine - Technicolour (Throwing Snow Remix) [pelski highly recommends] {128kbps}
The man who could have won the award for most-heavily-hyped-artist-in-2009 had a comparatively quiet year in 2010. So what's he been up to? Well he's teamed up with Kavsrave to bring this shuffling slice of funky; pent up marching drums and the odd bell make this a restrained but effective offering from the big J.O. Most exciting of all, however, is his forthcoming release on Hotflush: a couple of lovely Detroit-nodding house cuts.
Kavsrave vs. Joy Orbison - Untightled {via RCRDLBL}
Jack Dixon, a newcomer to the dubstep/garage scene, turned quite a few heads with his debut 'Subsitute EP', all shimmering synths and skippy 2-step. His bootleg of Justin Timberlake sees snapping garage snares and deep bass stabs surround JT's swirling croon.
Justin Timberlake - My Love (Jack Dixon Bootleg)
A ticking organic remix from the ever prolific LOL Boys:
Maya Vanya - Panama (LOL Boys Remix)
Bonus: FaltyDL - St. Marks (Sepalcure Remix)
