GoldNation - Sex Like A Pornstar (Remixes)

This is the first single from the album Soundtrack To Freedom. It's a suggestive, brooding Deep House track with spoken word vocals by Sir Ari Gold that is sure to heat up your Summer sets. Dr. Brooks, Jared Jones, Jose Zaragoza, and Lucius Lowe provide the remixes. The Dr. Brooks mix has a Disco meets Funky House flavor. Jared Jones hardens things up on his mixes. Jose Zaragoza's mix is in a similar vein as the original though it is far more minimal. Lucius Lowe's mixes are sleazy and sexy. Everyone of these mixes is a keeper though the Jared Jones and Lucius Lowe ones are the clear standouts in addition to the original.

Groove Addix feat Chase Silva - Free To Be Me (Remixes)

This is a new release from the JRED Music label coming out later this week. It is an uplifting, inspirational Electro/Pop song with a soulful male vocal in its original version. This is a suitable track for all of the upcoming Pride festivities. There are additional remixes by Christian Hornbostel, House of Labs, Jared Jones, Paul Goodyear, Ricky Pellegrino, and Sweet Team. The Christian Hornbostel mix is techy and minimal. The House Of Labs are hard and perfect for peak hour. The Jared Jones mixes which are bassline driven are also suitable for peak hour play. Paul Goodyear's mixes are tribal, but they have a Hi Nrg flavor to them. Ricky Pellegrino provides a techy, Deep House mix. Last but not least is the Sweet Team mix which is a gorgeous piano-based House mix. Overall, every one of the remixes is excellent! It is a solid remix package for a great song.

Paris Hilton - Turn U On (Rosabel Remixes)

This was originally a song on the socialite and reality entrepreneur's debut album Paris released in 2006. While the album had limited success, several of the singles were remixed and given a club release where they did well. The songs may have lacked vocal panache, but the productions by the remixers made them palatable. Rosabel (Ralphi Rosario and Abel Aguilera) had remixed this song however, the remixes remained unreleased until now. The took the tepid original and turned it into a sex bomb with massive tribal drums. Their vocal mix is straightforward, however, their two dubs the highlights. The main Dub has almost no vocals. Their Vocal Dub has just a few spoken vocals. The big room production is thrilling and exciting with its twists and turns. It's hot.

Sage The Gemini feat Nick Jonas - Good Thing

This is a collaboration of the rapper and rising R&B/Pop star Nick Jonas. The groovy 80s meets Hip Hop number is produced by Ilya. Nick is soulful and oozing sexuality on his pre-chorus, hooks, and ad libs while Sage's rap is fierce. They are a great match for each other. The song comes in both an explicit and clean version as the explicit one's title is actually "Good Shit" but for the single release, it is going by "Good Thing." The substitution of the profanity is appropriate so the flow of the song is not interrupted.

Avicii - Waiting For Love

This is the latest single from the Swedish DJ/producer. He co-produced the song with Martin Garrix and enlisted the help of singer Simon Aldred. The song is in a similar vein as Avicii's earlier work which was far more uplifting and atmospheric. It is far more accessible than some earlier offerings, particularly with the Alternative Rock-esque vocals. This should easily crossover and give Avicii a multi-format hit.

Years & Years - Shine

This is the UK trio's new single from their debut album entitled Communion due out in June. The dreamy 80s Synth Pop track is in a similar vein as other singles, however, this one is far catchier. Their current single "King" has just begun to cross over in the U.S. This would be the ideal stateside followup to firmly establish them here.

Sinitta - Touch Me (All Night Long)

The 80s Pop princess has covered the song originally recorded by Fonda Rae and later made even more famous by Cathy Dennis. It has been remixed and remade countless times over the years. Despite having recorded a number of covers in the past, this one didn't turn out so good. The phrasing and vibe of the vocals feel uninspired. She's on key and whatnot, however, she just doesn't sound like she is feeling what she is singing. The Hi Nrg-influenced productions of all the remixes are on point though. The vocals work best on the SAW-inspired Matt Pop mixes.

Aiden Leslie - I Just Go (Remixes)

This is the singer-songwriter's newest single. It is a melancholy midtempo dubstep inflected ballad. It has the feel of an early 90s Erasure track. The song has been spiced up for the dancefloor with a massive package of remixes. All of the mixes are well-done, however, the best of the bunch are by Frank Lamboy, Mike Rizzo, and Taj. Frank Lamboy's is a hard peak hour stormer while Mike Rizzo's is more mainstream and chill. Taj's accessible big room mix with a massive drop will work the best overall.
