Hot damn, this was a pleasant surprise to find out about today. Mad Decent just dropped the remix package for “Only Getting Younger” by Elliphant ft. Skrillex. Elliphant is a female vocalist who reminds me most closely of M.I.A., with her exotic dialect, and who has been taken under the wing of Diplo and the rest of the Mad Decent team. Elliphant is described by Mad Decent as “unapologetic and often outspoken” and the label goes on to say “Elli has lived all over the world, including the streets of India as a teenager, and it’s exactly these unique life experiences that have led her to create such powerful material in the studio.” Her Look Like You Love It EP (available on iTunes HERE) dropped earlier this Spring and features production by Skillex, Diplo, Dr. Luke, TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, and more.
This week the Mad Decent team not only dropped five remixes of Elliphant’s single “Only Getting Younger”, but they also released all five tracks for free download. The remix package includes work by TJR, Milo & Otis, Brazzabelle, Vice & Justyle, and NGHTMRE & Imanos. The TJR treatment gives the song a fun, bouncey House vibe that TJR has been known for over the past couple years. Milo & Otis show us why they’re very quickly becoming a top-notch duo for all things bass music and I really like the Moombahcore vibes in their approach. The rest of the remix EP features some Dubstep, some Drum & Bass, and some Trap. “Only Getting Younger” was originally a heavy-hitter, and the new remixed sounds we hear today certainly build on that momentum.
Go ahead and check out the tracks below and absolutely give props to all artists involved. You’ll have to click on each individual track to grab the free download, but it’s worth it to add all of these to your collections!
