High Rankin as some of you may know is a mainly dubstep style producer from the UK. Hes different to other acts in the way that his music and production is heavily laced with comedy. A quick search on youtube and you will find some pretty entertaining videos, such as “Shouting at the sky” which is a hilarious video about an EDM love triangle featuring Skrillex, Deadmau5 and Steve Aoki. Moving on to how this is relevant to Rain City Riot, words from High Rankin himself
“A brand new track for free download from my new project Rain City Riot. Different name, different vibes, same overweight idiot at the controls.”
So there you have it, Rain City Riot is a new, perhaps slightly more serious project from the guy behind High Rankin. The song itself starts off as more of an atmospheric work, then transforms into a beat heavy club track. The vocals are present all the way through. They are kind enough to offer a free download on soundcloud. We look forward to hearing more from Rain City Riot in the future.

You really don’t want to miss this Bassnectar mix. Bassnectar has to be one of my favorite Djs out there, I can’t count the number of good mixes hes done or the number of times i have listened to them in the past. This one is no exception, when i saw it i was instantly excited to hear it. He starts off with his remix of Feeling Good by Nina Simone, moving on through the tracks, Bassnectars remix of Where is my mind by The Pixies makes an appearance. Eventually we get to a point where you hear the “Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You” mashup coming in, and you know its about to go down. You wouldn’t be wrong. I don’t have much info on this mashup of Bassnectar’s other than he only seems to have dropped it a handful of times, once at Coachella (2013). I could talk about this mix all day, so i’ll let you listen to it and form your own opinion.

This song is taking dancefloors across the globe by storm. Fatboy Slim teams up with Riva Starr to create a track which takes you on a journey. Allegedly this is how they came up with the idea, quoted from the man Fatboy Slim himself.
“Me and stef (riva starr) were out vinyl shopping in williamsburg,
brooklyn earlier this year when we met this dude ranting in the street
about some 3 day bender he had been on (and possibly still was….)
we hooked him into our serato and chopped him up into a tune.
I just wish we’d caught his full name…….”
Honestly this is one of my favorite tracks of 2013, It fascinates me in the way that it tells its story. It’s rare for a dance track to tell a story and this makes the track stand out, with lines such as “Sorry dude i thought you were an object” and “Dancing to the hum of the fridge” you know this track can keep a first time listener entertained. It appears to be a hit in the worlds super clubs as we have heard it being played in both Ibiza and Mallorca. The lyrics ” Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” sound all too familiar to our regular week.

You may remember we recently sat down and interviewed Vanic, We talked to him about everything from who influences him to which Djs he’d take on a date! In that interview he told us that he was working on a new remix. This is a preview of that remix and we think it sounds great. Hes taken on a really well known EDM anthem and given it his own spin. Check it out above. Get loose should be available in the near future.

Jez Dior hops on Smarter Child s remix of James Young’s hit Dark star which is personally one of my favourite tracks with its mesmerizing hypnotic beat and the fantastic vocal talent of James young. This remix just adds another dimension to the song with Jez Dior gracing it with his smooth flow and lyricism as well as a more upbeat tempo to the song from Smarter Child. Both these artists have great solo material so please check them out in the links provided!

Kat Krazy is on a roll, producing amazing remix after remix of chart hits. The latest track to be transformed is Naughty Boy’s Lifted featuring Emeli Sande. The uplifting dance chords create an electro banger which seems somehow familiar.
Taken from his soundcloud :
“Kat Krazy, the unavoidable force taking the UK music scene by storm, has become one of the hottest remixers and producers to have been propelled into music stardom in recent years. Having worked on tracks for a whole host of chart-topping artists including Coldplay, Rihanna, Nicole Scherzinger, Foster The People, Marina & The Diamonds and Pixie Lott, he is quickly building a remix discography that is putting the Kat Krazy phenomenon firmly on the map. Proof that his signature sound isn’t solely for the world’s dance floors, his remixes have received huge support from Radio 1, Capital and Kiss, showing the Kat Krazy finesse to translate into pulse driving sound no matter the setting.”
My personal favorite remix by Kat Krazy is this one of Bastille’s Pompeii
