Montreal’s CRi has let loose his new James Blake remix. And it’s a sensual one. A feeler of a track with it’s fingers in House, Indie, and maybe most lovably, Acid. All in this is a Canadian track you should have your mitts on. And it’s been up for free download just to fill them mitts with.

Fan of James Blake and Chance the Rapper’s track ‘Life Round Here’? Here’s a sexy cover by Ellie Goulding featuring total badass Angel Haze. Haze is one of those artists that I just can’t support enough, she’s just the type of tough female rapper we need more of and is poised to become one of the first LGBT rap artists to achieve mainstream recognition. The song is similar to Blake’s version, yet pleasantly different – perfect if you’ve played the original to death.

For my first post with FutureClassics, here is a mix as appropriate for pre-raving as a post-party wind down. This Shambhala 2012 mix from Vancouver veteran Michael Red is a mellow and relaxing favorite I find myself listening to again and again – for any lovers of the annual BC music fest, it’s sure to bring up fond memories of the beach stage and greeting the hazy morning sunrise, but it’s equally as good for a chilled-out evening at home by yourself. Includes such well-known faves as James Blake and Frank Ocean, as well as an Andy Dixon remix of the soulful vocals of Vancouver’s own Evy Jane. Queue it up and drift away into dreamland.
