Felix Bloxsom is Plastic Plates, an Aussie producer who is unsigned and remarkably not famous yet. I became hooked on his mixes after I heard his electronic 80-esque addition to Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain.” The same nu disco poppiness sound can be found on his synthy take on I Blame Coco’s “Turn Your Back on Love”.

Now Felix has tackled one of the catchiest songs from last year, Mark Ronson’s “Record Collection”. The Plastic Plates funky sound really hits its beautiful stride from 2 minutes on to the end. Compare this new remix with the gorgeous hip-hop remix that came out in February, featuring the talented MNDR, Wiley, Pharrell, and up and coming British rappers Wretch 32 and Professor Green.
