The producer’s original productions are available on Soundcloud too. If your soundcloud stream wasn’t already filled with his remixes, we recommend digging through this mass upload.
The Areia team came together recently to arrange a mashup/mix of F(x)’s “Rum Pum Pum Pum.” It’s a chill tech house track that might be juxtaposed well with Areia’s other house remix of Kim Sori’s “Dual Life.” To our knowledge, this is the only remix of F(x)’s “Rum Pum Pum Pum” at the time of this post’s publication.
Sometimes it’s two songs that DO NOT belong together that make a really cool mashup. Maybe it’s just that DJ G Sweet has a twisted sense of dichotomy, but we’re really enjoying his Mashup between sweet and innocent Secret and 90’s thuggish Insane Clown Posse.
DJ Masa and SHIMMixes recently unveiled their 2013 megamix. It’s a nice piece of work to close your sets on. Be sure to pimp out the DJ Masa and SHIMMixes names when you drop it though, the duo deserve a lot of credit of this work. Unfortunately, for the DJs who want to take sections of the medley into their mix, the the song isn’t a constant tempo throughout to be ready to adjust that pitch as you’re beatmatching.
HVNS is just twenty-effing-two years old but he’s already producing high quality trap/dubstep/jpop music under CLUBSODA. If you haven’t watched or heard of CLUBSODA (not to be confused with the drink), it’s a dynamic-duo between HVNS and his pop star vocalist MOTSU. HVNS also produced a sort of web documentary that you should all catch on the CLUBSODA YouTube. As we watch the production value of the video and music, we’re amazed at how young these gifted producers come these days. It may be that as music production becomes increasingly digital, the barriers to entry diminish.
Official remixes are great. We’re incredibly excited for Areia Remix to have another official remix under their belt – even better that it features Korean Comedians and Dalshabet’s Ahyoung. As we’ve stated before – it’s official work like this that legitimizes the kpop remix community.
Coming from Jun:
For the ones that don’t know them, (originally Australian) Sam Hammington and Jo Won-Seok are famous comedians in Korea appearing in many shows spreading laughter. Keeping the tradition of comedians bringing uplifting/sarcastic songs, they bring “Kuulkuk” – which is the sound you make when you swallow your drinks down. This is an official remix produced in parallel with the original song. The girl in the video is Dalshabet’s Ah Young.
Back in July, Areia Creations – now operating under the “Areia Remix” brand announced the addition of Trance Blossom to the areia crew. To quote the blog post directly:
In addition trance style k-pop remixer Trance Blossom is now part of areiacreations and he will be working with the rest of the team on bringing more dreamy and uplifting remixes to our brand.
Trance Blossom stays true to his name with this Sunny Hill remix that is both dreamy and uplifting. The trance remix is in a MAJOR key – something to be desired when all kpop remixes today are in minor keys. The mix is without an extended intro, but we’ll happily make an extended version of this if you gaise ask for it.
The french mashup artist Huygens knows how to play with sampling to create a fluid mix. This Televisor instrumental with CL’s Baddest female acca has us thinking of CL’s song in a very different way – as all mashups should. As blackjacks we’ll admit it: the original was never really gangster – the CL single was too poppy to drop in a trap/hip hop set. This Huygens track lets us check the CL song off of the request list for the kids who ask for it – and lets us keep our electro-disco house set going. Continue reading
A bump for Smells. Because we thought the artist was incredibly difficult to locate over search engines, we wanted to give this guy some publicity for his remixes and original work.
Smells hails from Foundation Records — the label you may know for the eclectic group EE or the smooth house producer Demicat.
DJ/Electronic Music Producer, Smells has a great series of original tracks that gained some traction by the EatYourKimchi crew. We also heard that the guy performed the production and remix work of MFBTY’s Sweet dream. So maybe he’s the biggest deal you haven’t heard of yet. While we love the original work, we wanted to highlight Smells’ remix works of Sistar.
Like we mentioned in our last post, Areia’s remix of Gentleman is absolutely twerkalicious. We tried finding an animated .gif to demonstrate how twerking would work for this trap remix, but we had trouble finding something PG. As Jun Areia’s video will show, however, it’s almost as if the song was written for twerk. The way this new remix plays, it has us completely reinterpreting the lyrics of the original song.
