Lift Off #005
Posted by Middy on October 16, 2012
We are back with the 5th edition of Lift Off. Me and w8 have provided you with a bevy of quality tracks, the vast majority of them being free — something I know you all love so much. So without further ado get right into it because your ears have work to do. The Hardwell supported, Dannic remix of HELENA’s track with Mr. Wilson “Girl From The Sky” gives us his take on the track, bolstering the melody by giving synths a fuller body and more anthemic feel. The vocal has been released for free, so DJs go for it.
Betatraxx and Morten Breum combine on “Get Static” the first single on Betatraxx’s “Mercury” EP that combines a whole host of different styles from heavy electro to more more subtle piano and string builds. This superb production provides a breath of air with its eclectic sounds.
Primacy Funk gets a two spot on the 5th edition of Lift Off, first with this track that utilizes blissful chords to create this feel good track.
Next up we have the enigmatic Russian Erik Taylor better known to the world as Archie, who has of late failed in some aspects to live up to lofty expectations set by his early productions, but this time he switches it up a little combining guitar with his signature Archie sound.
Next we get into bit more of an emotive melody from Lars, combining infectious vocals with a superb piano melody.
While it does have that trademark 2011 Swedish house sound, “Nimbus” still meets criteria with arousing chords and bass pounding excitement.
We are provided with an elegant array of smooth rhythms and perky synths courtesy of Fareoh. Update: It was taken down for some reason….
Continuing this theme of awesomeness, we arrive at KarbonCopy’s latest instalment. I talked highly of these guys earlier in the year as showing all the right elements of quality, and they still live up to that here.
Among the vast array of pointless music comes faith from Tim Gartz, accompanying us with a melodically, energetic tune.
The second track in the post from Primacy Funk, continuing their trend of blissful melodies, while adding superb female vocal.
It is no secret that Project 46 is a well-established force in progressive house, and revitalizing that notion is ‘Feel The Fire’. Release November 4th on Zouk Recordings.
Steener continues his consistent output of quality uplifting progressive house tracks as he attempts to win the Spinnin Talent Pool.
Leezy takes this track from Kimbra, A-trak and Mark Foster and adds a funky nu-disco twist with an alternating bass line that helps it stand out among the increasingly crowded nu-disco field.
