A-Trak and Zinc’s massive, siren-laden raver “Stingray” gets reworked into a proper party starter thanks to dancehall star Natalie Storm. Her seductively catchy vocal turns the tune into “Like The Dancefloor,” a dirty pop anthem out next Tuesday (10/16), featuring brand new remixes from Dismantle, Shadow Child, and JWLS. Pitchfork just premiered the track’s official music video, shot by Charlie & Joe on location at Notting Hill Carnival in London. Light one and check it out!

Major Lazer’s buddy JR Blender even shows up to the party with a sweet lover’s rock version of Telephoned’s “The Vow,” serving as a perfect postscript to this must-listen remix collection. Read More
