i'm sorry to be on such a Jessie Ware binge recently but the truth of the matter is her latest album, Tough Love, is nothing short of amazing and more importantly she's not afraid to get experimental with some really fantastic producers on the disco and house scene when it comes to remixes.

Which brings me to why I'm showcasing her again today. Jessie Ware:Remixed is a collaboration between Ware and Red Bull Studios where five different producers in five different cities create five distinctive remixes for the Julio Bashmore-produced album track, 'Keep on Lying.' While all five are noteworthy, it's Preditah's garage influenced remix that stands out, possibly because it reminds me of another garage-influenced Ware remix, by Disclosure, which put both of those acts on the map way back in 2012.

The OXD Mirror: Throwback Thursday with Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, and more

When Janet Jackson recently re-entered my news cycle, thanks to a rare public appearance earlier this week, I was hoping it would be related to the rumored, much anticipated, new album that she is supposedly recording. Alas, there's no news on that front but at least we have a fresh new remix to hold us over for a while, at least until details about the diva's potential comeback appear.

Munich's Justin Faust updates Janet's 2001 hit, 'Someone to Call My Lover' with sexy basslines and soulful pitch reduction making it a dance floor burner that easily fits into today's balearic and deep house soundscapes. Faust has had a great year, with his previous release 'Spellbound' in heavy rotation by DJs and fans alike.  As a gift for surpassing 5000 followers on twitter, Faust is giving away this classic Janet remix away for free, and it can be downloaded via the Soundcloud widget above.

After a string of production and remix credits this year,  British singer and producer Adam Bainbridge, also known as Kindness, released Otherness, an album of disco-inspired pop tracks earlier this week. 

Amongst other album guest stars such as Dev Hynes and Kelela, Kindness enlists Robyn's sparkling voice to shine through the stuttering beats on his upcoming single, 'Who Do You Love?'. While the lyrics border on banal, Kindness keeps it interesting with ethereal tones juxtaposed with staccato, funky basslines.

Monarchy's Andrew Armstrong teams up with John Sambrooke again for another Horixon EP, which includes their latest single, 'Great Things.' Jacques Teal's beautiful, introspective vocals are complemented by a dreamy landscape provided by this hot production duo.

The EP's title track, 'Brighter Day' features house vocalist legend Robert Owens. Having collaborated with Owens before on 'Lifeline,' (released by Kitsuné) there's no question their new collaboration will fall into heavy rotation. Check out both tracks on the Brighter Day EP, available now on Beatport.

The 2 Bears, comprised of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raphael 'Raf Daddy' Rundell, have just released 'Get Out,' the opening track from their sophomore album, The Night is Young.

The track starts slowly, with a cadence that wouldn't feel out of place on a Hot Chip Album, but quickly builds and takes the listener on a journey to the dance floor. The track sets the stage nicely for the album's lead single, 'Angel (Touch Me),' which has had me grooving for several months now. The Night is Young releases on October 13th via Southern Fried Records

The OXD Mirror: Celebrate Summer with Goldroom, Moon Boots, Satin Jackets, Poolside, and more

L.A.'s Goldroom (Josh Legg) stays true to form with his latest single, 'Till Sunrise.' Legg's lush production provides a glistening backdrop for Mammals' dreamy vocals, creating an almost perfect tune to enjoy these last few days of summer.

 In an unorthodox move, Legg also released the vocal stems for 'Till Sunrise' a few days before premiering the actual track, in an effort to induce even more creativity among remix producers. We're looking forward to hearing those different iterations, and thereby extending our summers, as well.

'Till Sunrise' sets the stage for today's playlist, which is chock-full of summery tunes. Listen AFTER THE JUMP...
