Nikki & Rich are gearing up to release their eclectic, genre-defying debut album Everything this summer on Reprise Records. The swaggering first single "Next Best Thing," which the duo unleashed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April, has now been remixed by some of the best hands in the game. We have colossal remixes from Trent Mazur, Steve Aoki, Jazzy Jeff, Drek Martinez, Jesse Marco & Jus Ske, and Gigamesh. Check out the video for the album version.

The long-formidable Australia-born singer and songwriter Sia releases her fifth proper album, We Are Born, on Monkey Puzzle/Jive Records on June 22. The first single "Clap Your Hands" is a deliriously happy burst of good times and a call to the dance floor wherever you are. We have dynamite remixes from the ever-trailblazing Diplo, Prince Vince, and France's Fred Falke.

Robyn follows up her Grammy-nominated album with a triple album in three installments. Body Talk Pt 1, (6/15) picks up where Robyn left off, with the emphasis on those sweeping, emotional dance tracks and the biting, quirky rap-pop with which she made her name. On the lead single from the new album, “Dancing On My Own,” Robyn depicts a scene familiar to many: the man she loves is dancing with another woman, oblivious to her presence as she looks on.
Check out the club remixes by Chew Fu, Michael Woods, Fred Falke, Jakwob, Rex The Dog and Buzz Junkies.

2 years ago, Gilles Peterson visited Cuba for the first time on a reconnaissance mission to check out the new generation of Havana-based artists. The fruits of his labor culminated in the album he presented, Havana Cultura, which was recently released, but now his Brownswood Recordings imprint is preparing the release of Havana Cultura Remixed out on June 7th, enlisting remixes from the likes of Louie Vega, Carl Cox, Seiji, Marc Mac of 4Hero, and many more. The 2 disc album also features a bonus DJ mix courtesy of Gilles Peterson himself that neatly weaves together the disparate threads that make up a typical Peterson DJ Set. From the stirring percussion and meandering groove of Louie Vega's marathon Latin workout to the hi-octane Bengua-esque skank delivered by Carl Cox and the lazy ebb and flow of Michel Cleis' magnificent shuffling houser, this is Gilles in his element.
