Onomatopoeia Exclusive Download: /ˈjedˌīak/ - “Dream Lights” (Ellie Goulding vs. Beyonce) & “Smack That End” (Akon feat. Eminem vs. Shlohmo)

Day two of our exclusive remix week and I’m going with a totally different vibe than yesterday’s efforts. First up is one I finished back in July called “Dream Lights;” which feature’s Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” over Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams.” Two older songs for sure but I thought the mix was screaming to happen, so why not by me?

Second up is something I finished up last week and that I’m actually quite pleased with. I feel the re-work totally updates the Akon vocal and brings it right back to 2014.  The Omni Echelon remix of Shlohmo & Jeremih’s “Realize The End” does most of the heavy lifting though.

On a side note it’s crazy how many different commercially released versions of “Smack That” are available out there, I think I heard at least four but the Eminem one worked best.

I also want to give a shout out to my flat mate, Jason, who provided the art for "Dream Lights," not for nothing but sometimes it feels like a factory in here pumping out all this material!

Check back tomorrow for more tunes and listen, download and share today’s features from below…
