We Are Ghosts


Maybe you remember that not too long ago, LA based duo Two Friends remixed the track "I Miss You" by Blink 182? Well, now they are back with a re-remix of that track, teaming up with a D.C. based producer going by the name of Shoolz. This has resulted in the track getting a higher tempo and a super sweet trap like vibe. Personally, I think that increasing the bpm suits this remix really well, giving it some extra energy and perhaps even smoothing out the Blink 182 vocal a bit in the process. If you're in the U.S. celebrating 4th of July (or even if it's just a regular ol' Monday for you), then this is track you should add to your party playlist.

Up next is something really special. The artist collective We Are Ghosts recently held an open session for producers to participate in their weekly session. Each week a challenge is posted on their social media sites and the artists then have to create a track that meet a specific set of criteria. For the open week challenge, a vocal sample had to be used and you can listen to the sample HERE. In total, 18 different producers participated and each made a sketch for a track, me included.

What came out during that week is absolutely mindblowing and really shows of the diversity of electronic music. In some ways this compares to a remix competition, except here the artists have had much more creative freedom, giving room for proper experimentation.

You can check out all 18 tracks below and some are available for free download too.

The We Are Ghosts collective will probably have another open session during the fall. So stay tuned and check out their social media to stay up to date (see links below)
