STMPD RCRDS, which launched their Garrix remix contest in collaboration with Instantly a few weeks ago, is now releasing the five most impressive reworks that were delivered. Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko chose all of the winners; you can watch a video of their listening session here. Eleganto, Exbow, MAZAN, Gabriel Kirsh, and Jack & James took first place and now have an official Garrix remix on their resume.
Aspyer feat. Ni/Co – Nobody
Aspyer, a regular on STMPD, has a new release for everyone. He used the voices of the popular pop group Ni/Co for ‘Nobody.’ He took a more minimalistic approach to this new track, a slight departure from his previous releases. He found the perfect match with the voices from Los Angeles-based pop group Ni/Co, mainly known for their presence on YouTube, who created the lyrics and topline.
For a long time I’ve been wanting to make something minimalistic and unusual for myself, and this track was a great opportunity for experimentation. The source of inspiration for this track was my trip to the museum of modern art. I saw works where minimalism was preserved in the picture even using different colors and elements, this inspired me to do something fresh and new for me. Nobody is not quite typically my sound, but I tried to keep my signature style as much as possible. – Aspyer
MALARKEY – Cherub
Following the massive success of ‘Shackles (Praise You),’ Malarkey is back with another Gospel-infused Piano House record titled ‘Cherub.’ The song heralds the beginning of a new era for Malarkey, with a feel-good and uplifting track to commemorate the occasion. ‘Cherub,’ which gives people more of what they liked on previous feel-good records, could very well be the next step in Malarkey’s career.
Future Class is back for their fourth release on STMPD RCRDS, and this time they’ve teamed up with Gorillowz to bring you a very heavy and danceable sound on ‘My Mind.’ ‘My Mind,’ a sensational mix, was inspired by a plethora of influences from both Future Class and Gorillowz, resulting in a blend of the famous Brazilian electronic groove and basslines, as well as influences from Tech House, Garage, and Bass House. The song contains so much groove and bass as a perfect union of the Brazilian sound that it will be impossible to stand still on the dance floor once this one comes up.
We started to come up with this idea and soon after we saw that it would fit very well to work with Gorillowz on this track, we are big admirers of the songs they have been releasing lately and after a few tries we finally managed to finish a track together and the result is ‘My Mind’. – Future Class
