Future Classics Mix vol 31 | Mixed by Heizen

Scouring the cloud for exciting new talent yields some of the best listening. Australian talent is the pay dirt. Having had the good fortune of an introduction to Heizen, a strong newcomer to every possible Tech variation has been tremendous. The name will be one appearing with much more frequency in the coming year, this is yet another mix / artist FC is proud to present to you early on.

London Grammar – Hey Now (Bonobo Remix)

Is there anything better than a great London Grammar remix? Bonobo instills that characteristic “peaceful curiosity” of his (I love the quiet chimes) while London Grammar adds strength with some seriously powerful female vocals.

Both artists are British-born and currently on tour – hopefully you caught London Grammar at the Commodore on March 31st and if not, while Bonobo isn’t appearing in Vancouver (wtf?) he’ll be in Seattle on the 19th (or you can catch him in Victoria at Sugar Nightclub on May 21st).

Vindata – All I Really Need (ft. Kenzie May)

Vindata is a pair of Los Angeles-based producers. Started in early 2010, they describe their music as a “passion project to explore an uncultivated, organic, electronic sound. Jared Poythress and Branden Ratcliff set out to fuse their homegrown influences (Funk, Hip Hop, and R&B) with their new found zeal for Indie-dance, Chillwave, and Experimental.” Kenzie May also kills it with some soft vocals and subtle drug references in this disenchanted track.

Q-Tip – Work It Out (Stint Remix)

One of Q-Tips more timeless works. The drums is Kohlenberg. Stint has been roaming around the scene / production game for number of years at this point, 2014 is being called out as his breakthrough year. The music game could use another Vancouver connect all up on it. This remix is offered as only a 48 hour download, kind of a tease if your a sleeper.

YUNG SIMMIE – WOODGRAIN GRIPPIN’ (Jade Statues Flip)

After Midnight‘ had three players, Ekali (who has had mention already today), vocalist VZNS, and The Oneiroscopist, who will no longer be known by this name. A short week ago the change was made in moniker to Jade Statues. To kick things off in a more memorable way than a mere status update, Jade Statues offers a new flip.

Said The Whale – Safe To Say (Ekali Remix)

Vancouver’s own Ekali has carved out a deep corner of the prolific for himself. Mix after mix after mix for great names with even greater tracks. This creative immersion has only been further deepened with the announcement of a Said The Whale Remixes EP, all tracks of which are by, you guessed it, Said The Whale band member Ekali. ‘Safe To Say’ is surely just the tip of the iceberg. Full release available April 22nd.

Foals singer turned solo producer on the remix, originally premiered on Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.

Paces – Can’t Touch Me feat. Madeline Vida

Cross genre pollination goes so far, when it’s done right obviously, but also when it’s equal parts experimental / playful. Paces ‘Can’t Touch Me’ for instance. Trace amounts of Trap, Juke, Tropical, and Female Vocalist are all present. The result being one that DIE HIGH RECORDS out of Perth is no doubt proud to be representing.
