Lift Off #001

Posted by on June 29, 2012

There are a lot of great house tracks that slip between the cracks during the weeks as we try and post the best stuff that comes out. Lift Off is a new segment that will help to amend those crevasses and give us a chance to post a lot more submissions that showcase more upcoming talent from here in the US and around the world. The name “Lift Off” is that euphoric feeling you get at a festival having the greatest time of your life; it is the peak of celebration. In this there will be previews from time to time, songs on Beatport, lots of free tracks and maybe support for a Beatport contest if it is really good. This is not necessarily a weekly thing, it all depends on the rate at which the music collects. Enough talk, as the legend Pete Tong says “Welcome to the weekend”.

Tommy Trash starts us off with his club mix of his collaboration with Moguai on his latest album Mpire that takes the great original track with a Daft Punk flare and gives the drop a much needed boost to it. Listen above and get it on Beatport or iTunes.

John de Sohn provides a superb progressive house remix utilizing Max C’s signature vocals dextrously. With a chopped uplifting melody and a rising synth and quick moving piano melody in the interlude you will want to hit play. Get it on Beatport.

Under appreciated Adrien Mezsi teams with Italian duo Rayven & Valexx to give us “Domynos”, another uplifting progressive track (you see the theme developing here). A melodic, clap driven build crescendos into a euphoric synth driven drop with a growling underlayer and thumping bass. Get it on Beatport.

Moguai is getting some heavy work in this first edition of Lift Off with the Tommy Trash remix of “In N Out” and now his remix of Wally Lopez – Keep Running The Melody. He brings in a big room melody in the build and interludes with a simple yet effective percussive drop ready to make clubs and festivals ignite. Get it on Beatport.

Continuing his great 2012, Feenixpawl contributes a lively drop to his take on the infinitely remixed “Lights” by Ellie Goulding. More free tracks after the jump.

17 year old Finnish producer Lenno gives us this free remix with a great summer disco vibe to it. A funky bass line gives way to a great top line and piano melody that is sure to have you dancing.

Young Swedes Dirigo & Fjæstad provide their take on Robyn’s classic track “Dancing On My Own” with a melodic piano driven build and a drop of uplifting melodies and a thumping bass. One of the better progressive house remixes out there for “Dancing On My Own”.

Tobi D’Eramo was nice enough to offer us a free download of this great piano house track with its uplifting melodies and deft key play.

Canadian natives, Project 46 refresh Eyes Wide Awake with an evermore energetic melody made of all the right ingredients.

Using the same type of big room synths utilized by the likes of Dirty South, The 8th Note, Ken Loi, Alesso and others, Matt & Kendo using the vocals from Morning Parade and provide an uplifting, progressive remix with a hands in the air drop.

Young Dutchman, Averez has released his single “Polukra” with a hard growling drop that has a distorted synth that I don’t think I have ever heard before and will really catch your ear. The interludes gives us some big room synths, creating anticipation of the next drop.
