Buro 24/7 Middle East contributor Maha Sulaiman selects five tracks to get you in the weekend spirit

This weekend's playlist will get you twitching to dance with its steady uplifting beats so turn up the volume and let go of the stress from the week...

1. M.I.A.’s music requires somewhat of an acquired taste due to her distinct vocals, but Falcons has given his twist on her incredibly popular “Yala” single, and the result is more than addictive. Falcons has focused on the vocals and completely transformed this one, using repetitive vocal chops, that vintage siren sound, and an 808 that hits incredibly hard. The trap-influenced piece is one that deserves to be an official remix, as Falcons has put in immense work to give us “Yala” in its best possible form.

2. A new artist from Memphis, that goes by the name 21 has dropped a fresh track. Although his name is 21, he’s actually 19-years-old. The beat is from Ta-Ku’s 'I Miss You' and features vocal samples from Willow Smith’s 'Summer Fling'.

3. German DJ, producer and label owner, Robin Schulz, has remixed Mr. Probz’s 'Waves' and it’s a melodic journey with catchy vocals. 

4. Duke Dumont’s stellar release of 'I Got You' featuring Jax Jones has been touched and reworked through the finger tips of many producers. Sweden based producer and part of the French Express family, Jonas Rathsman stamps his own spin of 'I Got You'. This smash hit was premiered via i-D Magazine. Joans creates a redefined tune of his own, a sound classified as future garage or house, featuring a mesh of lively, crisp, and soulful beats. With his remix of 'I Got You', Jonas shifts to a more playful sound with a moody vibe throughout this remix. 

5. UK indie trio London Grammar receives one of their best remixes to date thanks to downtempo legend and fellow countrymen Bonobo. He strips the song down and reconstructs the melody in quite an impressive fashion adding in an array of organic drum and percussion elements and powerful synths.
