Today friends we’re going to be putting two of my favorite remixes head to head, and this time I really need all of your guys help because I am just way too torn between which one is the best. The contenders are Moonlight Matters and Plastic Plates who have both produced amazing remixes with super creative elements. Before you decide though let me break down each remix individually so you can have the full story –
Hailing from Belgium, Moonlight Matters has perfected that funky bass slap that defines his sound. In this remix he allows Adele’s beautiful voice to stretch throughout her verses, but when it’s time for the chorus to kick in you can be sure as hell Moonlight Matters is going to rock the track with that heavy funky bass accompanied by what I’d call the perfect percussion. Can’t forget those gorgeous orchestra strings Moonlight Matters throws in there. Amazing remix.
Here at VelectroRaptor we actually just posted Plastic Plates for the first time yesterday. I know we’re lagging, because this Australian native electronic producer has one of the most bumping and catchy nu disco sounds I have ever heard and constantly crave more. In his remix, Plastic Plates approaches the song with a slower BPM than Moonlight Matters, which I have to say makes the song. I guarantee you bump this song on good speakers or headphones, there’s no way you’ll be able to sit still. When I saw Aeroplane this past Saturday I heard this remix in his hour and a half set and was absolutely dumbfounded.
First heard this track in Aeroplane’s June Mix and was immediately hooked. Then I went further and did some research into Plastic Plates so I could learn more about that funky/nu disco sound that I have become obsessed with. Originally from Sydney, Australia, Felix Bloxsom (Plastic Plates) now resides in Los Angeles, California where he mixes up his tasty sound, while also opening for DJs such as Nero. This remix to Human League’s “Sky” has no doubt become one of my favorite summer jams and works perfectly for a pool party or any other summer activity. Make sure to show Plastic Plates as well as VelectroRaptor some love on Facebook.
