I’ve taken a few month hiatus from blogging but was compelled to come out of hibernation today to give you guys this gem of a remix! The other day I got a hold of the ‘official’ remixes being worked by the label for Beyonce’s “Formation“. Sorry to report to the Bey-Hive but they were not that great! I was very disappointed with them but I’m not a huge fan of the song in its original form so it would really take an EPIC rework to get me on board with this song. Just when I was ready to write it off, that’s when Barry Harris stepped in and dropped this massive bootleg remix that blows all other mixes I’ve heard out of the water! Don’t believe me? Listen for yourself!!!
Jess Glynne is one of my most favorite artists at the moment and her soaring vocals on her current single “Take Me Home” is an attesment as to how she can do no wrong to my ears! The only way I could love this song even more is if it were to receive an epic remix for the clubs by someone like… Oh, I don’t know… Tiesto maybe?!
The emotional Diane Warren written track performed by Lady Gaga “Til It Happens To You” has been given an official remix treatment! The legendary Diane Warren has once again penned an amazingly beautiful & haunting ballad which the boys of Dirty Pop have managed to magnify the raw emotion of with their dramatic club mix! This is a must listen!!
Superstar DJ/producer Wayne G has taken on a classic house record to reboot with his new Peyton assisted single “High“… Yes, the one originally recorded by Lighthouse Family! I always say that you are treading on very thin ice when taking on a classic of this magnitude but I’m relieved to say that Wayne and Peyton KNOCKED IT OUT THE PARK! Wayne & Leo Frappier did an amazing job updating the production enough to sound current while maintaining the uplifting, breezy vibe of the original! More importantly, the part that really could have really thrown in a wrench in this reboot (no matter how great the production was) is the vocal which Peyton also totally nailed! He sounds enough like Tunde Baiyewu (Lighthouse Family lead vocalist) without taking too many liberties to totally re-interpert a house music classic that most people want to hear intact, while still managing to add some of his soulful flare to his vocals to make it his own!
Barry Harris took on the new Ellie Goulding track “On My Mind” as his remix conquest and took a page of inspiration from his past catalog for the new production! As you listen to this fun new remix, you start to hear little synth similarities that sounds a bit familiar from the Thunderpuss days, then all of the sudden Whitney Houston herself makes a surprise cameo into the song and it’s nothing short of EPIC! Chills the first time I heard it – Literally!! I don’t want to give away anymore spoilers… Just listen!!
From my understanding, Madonna was actually considering a 4th single with “Devil Pray” in mind but decided against anymore releases for now. This is the Dirty Pop remix that was submitted to Madge and I have to say that it’s pretty damn EPIC!! She should really reconsider releasing it, even if it’s only a club single with a hot remix package!
Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour has been well on it’s way to reave reviews so it’s only natural that rock-star producer Barry Harris has just released his brand new take on her classic “Vogue” in celebration of her latest concert outing! Barry has once again knocked his Madonna remix out the park and delivered a fresh production that sounds very “current” while retaining some of its original dancefloor charm. Check out the remix video and get ready to get a good arm work out as you bust out into your best vogue dance moves!
Hey all! So I’m proud to announce that after a whole lot of sweat and tears, my first official remix has just been released! I had the honor to rework Aiden Leslie’s hot new single “I Just Go” and I wanted to take this opportunity share a clip with you guys. I really hope you like it… Please feel free to leave comments/feedback for me and of course if you’re feeling it, make sure you head over to iTunes or Beatport to pick up a copy!
Is anyone else as ecstatic as I am that Barry Harris has been churning out his floor-fillers on a regular basis just like old times?! My dancefloor seriously missed his signature energy and has been on fire ever since he’s reemerged in the studio! Barry literally just has released yet another amazing remix production just moments ago and I can’t wait to drop it into my sets this weekend! Check out his latest masterpiece – Ariana Grande’s latest single “One Last Time” which also features a little sample of Daft Punk’s classic hit “One More Time“. GENIUS! Take a listen and feel free to download!
After the epic iHeartradio Awardsperformance last night with Taylor Swift playing guitar backup… Madonna has unleashed the first of her official remixes for her new single “Ghosttown“! The new house rendition comes to us from Don Diablo and is already one of my favorite mixes from this Rebel Heart era! If this a representation of the other mixes we have to look forward to, I’m excited for what’s coming out way!! Check it out…
Proud to introduce my brand new remix production of Madonna’sRebel Hearttrack, “Wash All Over Me“. I did this remix for the new Madonna: Remix Project 2 EP which will feature a lot of amazing new remixes of M (from her entire catalog not just the Rebel Heart album)! My mix is featured on the first reveal of remix album along with 6 other great remixes! The rest of the project will be revealed in parts and will include 35 exclusive remixes total! Make sure you head over to LegitMix to hear the other mixes but in the meantime, check out my submission to album…
It’s official… The deep house sound is here to stay and superstar DJ/Producer Barry Harris has just jumped on baord on the revival to deliver us this EPIC housalicious remix of Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)“!! What I love most about this mix is that it is not just another cookie cutter house track that everyone else is doing at the moment, but a hybrid mix – Meshing the worlds of deep house with his signature tribal sound! This is a must have for your Saturday night playlist!
