Lift Off #004
Posted by Middy on September 22, 2012
Finally, we are back with another edition of Lift Off. We have a whole host of free gems from some good up and coming producers, more than usual, as well as some recent label tracks that should be added to your collection if they haven’t already. We start off with Tom Staar & Kryder and their heavily suported remix of “Can’t Stop Me Now” from Afrojack & Shermonology. Tom Staar was responsible for the festival favorite “African Drop” remix and with the duo teaming up for a “Don’t You Worry Child” remix, keep an eye for these two.
Next up we have a remix from New York native Odmark who puts together a delectable, funky nu-disco of this solid Mr Fluff track, giving us yet another reason to love the flavor of the year in nu-disco.
Young Australian producer, Walden has become a name to watch with his “In My Mind” remix becoming a staple in many sets across the world and a plethora of other free tracks raising his artist profile. His first release on Big Beat, “Warmonger” continues his rise to success with a churning progressive house track that takes a while to build, but once it gets there, you won’t be disappointed.
Following the Vicetone remix of Sparks, FNT regular, Moore, decided to take a stab at it as well, displaying his progressive proficiency taking a more easy going, piano driven approach to the track.
Spektrem in just their 3rd release have really come together to make a gem of a track with an incredibly addictive melody with vocals that create a superb harmony with the uplifting melodies. Read on for plenty more free gems.
Miami native & Mansion resident, Diego Manejo released an EP a little while back and this track has been my favorite of the bunch taking the infectious chorus and adding his own twist to this track from German Trance DJ Ronski Speed. Check out the rest of the EP HERE.
This song is not reinventing the wheel in terms of progressive house with its base in dance piano, but that does not mean it is not a very good track utilizing playful arps and well layered melodies.

Henry Fong gives his take on Ellie Goulding’s recent track “Anything Could Happen”, adding smooth synths over a steady bass line for the next Ellie track that will be getting heavy remix work.
Lenno has become a must-know name in the nu-disco field with his remix work for all sort of artists, from indie bands to such such big names in dance music like Dirty South, Martin Solvieg & Above & Beyond. This remix does not lower that standard with its quick moving arp, prominent piano motif and good use of the vocals.
Genesys is a new group from LA who recently put out this gem of a track that starts with a moving piano melody and then transitions into a more upbeat section with a varying bass line and pitched synth chords.
