Bruno Mars · When I Was Your Man (Whyel Remix)

Takin this popstar to highs only house could produce

Bruno Mars is among the many mainstream musicians with so much talent in that voice of theirs and yet don’t seem to be hanging out with the right crowd of producers. Thankfully, my reliance on the remix community has paid off once again, this time Whyel goes electro-house on the Mars man. I can’t say I like the house solos that appear a few times throughout the ‘When I Was Your Man’ remix, but now that I figured out Whyel use to go by YoungLife, it makes a lot more sense. He’s done a few good house remixes.

Foster The People · Helena Beat (YoungLife Remix)

"I tie my hands up to a chair, so I don't fall that way."

I can imagine the first time I listened to Foster the People, thinking that Mark Foster’s voice was a bit too delicate for my taste. But once you habituate that lovely thang, you realize it’s not the voice, but how he carries it that makes it so.damn.fresh. + those choruses of his are killer!

This time around, we get a remix of “Helena Beat” by YoungLife, which puts a electro-funk twist to these unforgettable chorus lines. Splash in some House and a little demented dubstep at the end and it’ll get you goin at any club.

Coldplay · Paradise (YoungLife Remix)

From mind-numbing to fist pumping!

YoungLife’s remix of “Paradise” appears to be a relaxing one up until a few minutes in when you realize you’ve got one hell of a rave-worthy remix. But as much as I love 80% of it, the other 20% needs mentioning.

The dub coiling half way through the piece really isn’t needed, but I understand its appeal and inclusion. However, it does need to tone down the dub and smoothin out the coiling into a more melodic style of dubstep. Still, nothin but love for this.
