Taken from the rather subpar remix pack for Laidback Luke, Project 46 and Collin McLoughlin’s “Collide”, the Australian duo known as Karboncopy have clearly the stand out track of the pack (with an honourable mention going to Marc Benjamin’s remix). We all know that, according to this very site, every song Collin McLoughlin is involved in might just go viral and so successfully remixing “Collide” would be no easy task. Karboncopy’s remix hardly resembles the original. They changed the structure of the song and kept the energy high during the break and the bridge before showcasing Collin’s vocals in the build and their fast paced melody in the drop. I might not go as far as to say this version is better than the original but if it isn’t, it’s close.

If there is one thing that is lacking in the world of progressive house music, it would be Lana Del Rey remixes. You just don’t come across one too often. Have you ever heard a remix of “Born To Die”? I highly doubt so because there are like none. The Two Friends saw this vacancy in the market and filled it sensually with their very own remix. Guys, you know how sometimes you put stuff in other stuff but it seems kinda weird cause that’s where stuff also comes out of? That is essentially what Matt and Eli did with what was almost an official remix. It has a similar feel to many of their previous tracks in that it puts the vocals on display with a soft instrumental and then turns it up for the build and drop. This is the song many of their fans have been waiting for so if you happen to be one of them, enjoy.

For those unaware, Galantis is a recently formed Swedish duo made up of Christian Karlsson of the indie pop band Miike Snow and Linus Eklow, better known as Style Of Eye. The duo’s second original together, “You”, is really something else. The vocals are unique and clearly stand out as the forefront of the track. That is not to say the production is lacking however, as its lightness during the build goes perfectly with the high energy drop. Everything in this song just fits together so well.

Next up on Chris Avantgarde’s series of free releases is “Rise Up”, a vocal progressive house song with Joel Edwards. Each of the tracks he has given away so far has been in a different style as the previous, but for this one he is giving us an older song he made back at his old studio in Germany. It has the same feel good sound as his previous original “Colours” and just may be his best track yet.

The guys behind such wisdom as ”If she is good on top, don’t ever take that for granted…” and “you should seriously consider creating some alias, maybe like mr jerkalot or something” (they said that to me in an email like 3 months ago don’t worry about it) have released yet another song, this time a remix to Strange Talk’s “Young Hearts”. You have undoubtedly heard at least some of their stuff before so I’m not going to explain their style again because I have been doing it every couple of weeks for months now. This has their classic sound and is once again a great remix. Also, they have broken their string of official tracks and released this one for free.

Everybody is aware of Madeon and his wonderful abilities as a producer. He doesn’t release tracks often but when he does they are always outstanding. In an effort to tide his fans over, he is releasing a song he made a few years ago for free. “Cut The Kid” upholds the high quality that we are use to seeing from the young Frenchman and has the same unique sound his productions always do.

First things first, look at the top left corner of the picture for some hot stuff. Do I ever wish I could have been that couch for the night haha.. As a thank you for 150k likes on Facebook, Marcus Schossow has given away a new track titled “Kings Of Summer Nights”. As alluded to by the title, this song is a dedication to the late nights he spent as a teenager growing up in Sweden. The song is quite different from his current stuff and is instead a light progressive tune that is almost trance like at times. This isn’t the type of track you would expect from him but it’s great and we can only hope he makes more like it in the future.
