Los Angeles-based producer/DJ Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, has returned with a cover of his favorite Fleet Foxes song “Mykonos”, taken from their 2008 “Sun Giant” EP. In trademark Goldroom style, this special cover, featuring Luxxury on bass, will transport you to a warm and sunny place. Better yet, you can grab it for absolutely free below.

“I don’t do covers very often, but this song has always hit me in a special way. It takes me away, and puts me in a different place. For the last couple of years I haven’t sang on any of my recorded songs, but this cover felt special and I wanted my voice on it because of what it means to me. I was a bit nervous to live up to all of the amazing vocalists that I’ve worked with, but yes, that’s me singing,” says Goldroom.

Jon Hopkins: “I Remember” (Yeasayer Cover)

UK producer and musician Jon Hopkins has completed the latest installment of the long-running Late Night Tales compilation series. Set to drop on March 1, the mix features tracks from Four Tet, Bibio, Nils Frahm, Holy Other, HEALTH remixed by Gold Panda, School of Seven Bells, and more. As with all installments in the series, an exclusive cover is included as well: Jon Hopkins’ wonderful instrumental version of Yeasayer’s “Odd Blood” track “I Remember”, which you can now stream above.

“The original is a beautifully sad yet upbeat breakup song, strident and bright with synth lines cascading around a heartfelt vocal. I wanted to make it sound far more broken and fragile, so I re-played it on the piano, pitched it down, then mangled it quite heavily so it came out sort of wobbly and knackered sounding. I wanted to leave it quite bare, just letting that amazing melody lead the way,” he says.
