This is one of those times when I found the remix version of the song much more interesting than the original version. This time Lana Del Rey - West Coast. I have nothing bad to say about the original song because I haven't listened to it properly. It is just that I have found several very exciting remixes that I would like to share with you.

After making a debut last summer with Disclosure's co-produced J.A.W.S EP, Andy Smith, better known as Lxury is back with another release. This time he released his own music while working with dance-pop label Greco Roman.

Playground EP consists of four songs which are absolute treat to us. Playground creates a beautiful vibe perfect for this year's summer. This EP is absolutely exciting collection of Lxury's music full of fun and vibrant sounding.

This is not a music genre neither a tropical rainforest but an electronic music duo from UK. BBC called them masters of mystery because everything that we know about them is that the duo consists of artists who grew up as neighbours in West London, they called themselves J and T.

They have been building a huge fan base without revelling they names or even faces. Last year their first London show was sold out in less than 24 hours.

They released two singles by XL recordings 'The Heat' and 'Platoon'. Both singles became huge success for them. Thanks to mesmerizing and attention - grabbing videos. However, since then we haven't heard anything new from them. Jungle said that their work is build on friendship and creative process rather than working towards the deadline. That is why their debut album is long anticipated.

Jungle's debut long play album is due to release on 14 of July.

''Right on time,
Back by the Beach,
Still gon' bring the heat.''

BANKS has shared her latest song from highly-anticipated debut album 'Goddess'.
The brand new song is called Drowning and shows her smooth vocals together with minimalistic electronic sound. The LA singer as always shows emotional and heartbreaking lyrics. Drowning is not exception. ''From the girl who made you soup and tied your shoes when you were hurting/You were not deserving''.

Drowning is another promising preview of her forthcoming full length album Goddess which is due to release on 9th of September.

Marc Kinchen, also known as MK is an American DJ and house music producer based on LA. Now he is a very big in house music industry, he is very well known from his remixes, however, he is not a new guy in the house music scene. MK is active since 1989 when he started creating dance music. During the 1993 and 1994 he hit the charts with his number one songs  'Always' and Love Changes' featuring the lead vocals from Alana Simon.

During the 90s he was working behind the scenes with the likes of Jay - Z and Beyonce. In 2013 he came back to the spotlight with his house music and remix production. For instance, his remix for 'Look Right Through' became a number one on the UK Singles Chart.

At the moment his production is mostly known from the remixes. Latest remixes include Lana Del Rey, Sky Ferreira, Ellie Goulding, Lee Foss and Tricky. However he is not releasing any music for his own discography but the latest single was together with Lee Foss.

listen to 'Electricity'

MK now is definitely the most productive he has ever been, he started to make his own DJ sets and play in the clubs around the world. Lets hope he will step back from DJing and will show some his own material releasing his single or even the album.

They almost won a Grammy for Best Dance/ Electronica album. However, they did not win.
They are putting on painted faces everywhere
