Lana Del Rey - West Coast (Munk Remix)

This one came as a bit of a surprise. German producer Mathias Modica, aka Munk, takes us for a summer drive down the Pacific Coast Highway with his rework of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” and it’s every bit as good as you’d expect from the mighty Gomma label boss. On his version of “West Coast”, Munk delicately places bright guitar licks, ice cool percussion, and a mellow, groovy bassline, which makes the track perfect for keeping on repeat. If your ears crave some slick deep house grooves, press play.

Michael Jackson – Love Never Felt So Good (Slinger Remix)

Fresh off of one of our favorite Nu-Disco takes on popular music, Slinger returns again to grace these hallowed pages of TMN with a high-energy disco rewrite of Michael Jackson’s posthumous charting single “Love Never Felt So Good”. Already with remixes of Prince and Pharrell under his belt, it was the perfect window for that glossy and ultimately mysterious nu-disco of Slinger to wrap itself up with the inimitable vocals from the King of Pop. Slinger’s remix begins with washy synth pads fueled by a simple upscale of strings before an exploding kick drum clears quite the followable auditory path for the tune to build into a dance floor assault. Again we’re taken one step further with the addition of a classic house piano and even a slight pan-flutey breakdown to pull a smile from even the most serious of dance groovers.
