If you’ve set foot in a club in the past year, chances are you’ve been assaulted (in a good way!) by Imanos‘ beats. The rising producer, who recently signed to Casablanca Records, has featured in sets by Skrillex, Avicii, Steve Aoki and Dillon Francis. He also co-produced Diplo‘s monstrous “Revolution” and co-wrote the title track of Jessie J‘s new LP Sweet Talker.

Speaking of the British comeback queen, the Vancouver-born DJ’s latest mixtape Imanos x Casablanca Presents: The New Republic features the first official remix of “Bang Bang”. He transforms the Ariana Grande/Nicki Minaj earworm into a meaty house anthem with lashings of trap to keep things interesting. The 19-song set, which we are very excited to premiere, also features killer overhauls of hits by John Newman, The Weeknd and Somo. Start the party by pressing play after the jump.
