"Crew Love" is easily one of the favorites from Drake's Take Care, but it's not necessarily a track that can get you hype for the club. Thankfully, UK producer Star Slinger added his magic touches to The Weeknd dominated track and makes it something you can dance to.

You either love dubstep or you hate it. In this case, I love it because Ty Cody turned Drake and The Weeknd's "Crew Love" into a more energetic, upbeat track.

The Weeknd's House of Balloons and Echoes of Silence are still two of my favorite albums to listen to, but whenever I want to play one of his tracks when I'm at a gig, I usually pull it from my set list or wait until the end of the party because the songs have such a melancholy vibe to them. Thankfully Brooklyn producer Chi Duly has given House of Balloons and Echoes Of Silence new life by reworking the mixtapes on his new project BalloonsOfHaus. My hero!
Check out Chi Duly's remix of "The Party" below, and hit the jump to download BalloonsOfHaus in full!
