I’m big into pop, progressive house, and large women talking to me. Not even joking about that last one, cause I like talking to everyone. I am constantly stocked up on progressive house tracks, but I am not as deep into the pop realm as I’d like to be. I go in a little bit, then out for a brief moment, then back in, then pretty much repeat that for a while. John Cena knows. Smallpools is one of the few who can keep me in there – I’m a huge fan of them – so I was happy to see that they released a new song. “Killer Whales” is great and has the same upbeat and fast paced feel as all their previous stuff. While it may not be their best track, it is still quality and definitely worth a listen for all you indie-pop lovers out there.

The first single off Steve Angello’s upcoming album is out and it is as awesome as one would expect. The superb vocals and radio ready production destine this song to commercial success, much like how “Don’t You Worry Child” was. It’s not a huge surprise for there to be a song or two from the album that is catered to the mainstream and this is one of them. Even so, it’s a great track and a smart way to reintroduce the world to Steve Angello, the solo artist.

Initially previewed a little under a month ago on his Soundcloud, “C.U.B.A”, Calvin Harris’ newest track is finally out. This track is huge and if you have yet to hear it, you need to promptly fix that and then go download it from somewhere.

In appreciation of the support he has gotten on his recent single, “You & I”, Marcus Santoro, my fourth best friend even though we’ve never actually met, has remixed Denzal Park’s “One Way Home” and is giving it away for free. You can expect either a harder, gritty track or a melodic one when it comes to Marcus’ releases and for this one he went the melodic route. Like always, the track is well crafted and has extremely high production quality.

Karboncopy, connoisseurs of erotic styled literature and progressive house music are debuting their forthcoming remix of Rob & Jack’s “Shadows” right here on FNT. The track shares some similarities with their previous remix for Laidback Luke and Project 46′s “Collide”, as well as the hit summertime smash of autumn 2011, “Without You” by David Guetta, in the sense that they are all pretty good. A strong piano leads the song out of the break and into the build, where the rolling melody takes over and then climaxes, powerfully, at the drop. Karboncopy are tremendously skilled and in time are sure to be among the top progressive house artists coming out of Australia. The remix is out a week from today, July 21st. Until then, enjoy the stream exclusively below.

A short while back, I was turned on by a fellow male blogger from this very site by the name of Biglife. He turned me onto lost kings, an LA based progressive house duo when he posted their “Best Friends” remix. That remix was good, but their remix of the ever-popular “Latch” is even better. This is the best progressive house remix you will hear of that song. These guys have a great amount of talent.

As most guys know, 16 isn’t too young. Especially in Brazil, where that’s just status quo. You could even go younger than that if you please but that’s typically the age where boys learn one of the greatest pieces of information they will ever know, the basics of FL Studio. That was the age that Lucas Bojakowski, now known as Jakko started releasing tracks and we have been following him ever since. For his latest single, he joined up with Marty, a little known Canadian producer out of Calgary and vocalist Jonny Rose for “Galaxy”. This is as high a quality track that Jakko has put out and shows why he is capable of growing into an internationally respected artist.
