Originally a “Demo Of The Week” on Hardwell on Air 153 called “Air” from Uforik, “Hydrogen” has now been repackaged with the skilled help of progressive starlets Lush & Simon. A global collab, bringing together Chinese newcomer Uforik and Italians Lush & Simon, this tune has the airy sound of its namesake. Sounding very similar to something from Audien’s back catalog, the blend of trance and progressive makes this tune a very easy-going, soothing progressive track that flows through the ears. Grab the tune now on Beatport courtesy of Doorn Records.

Tommy Trash’s new single, formerly known as Mad Max, “HEX” with Wax Motif of all people is now out via Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. One of his long awaited tracks, he brings on fellow Aussie and trashed tour teammate Wax Motif for the collab that has all of the hallmarks of a classic Trashman tune. Who knows how long ago he made this, but that gritty, rolling bass line that was his calling card is back and I love it. It sounds different enough to be fresh, but stays true to what he has been over the years.

As has been said before, tropical house is where it is at. One of the newcomers of the fast emerging sub-genre is Norwegian native Bearson (they all seem to be from the coldest places). We have brought you remixes from Bearson before, but this may be his best yet, showing some melodic poise over easy going percussion. James Bay’s vocals are the perfect compliment to what Bearson constructs with his instrumental. Best yet, the remix is free, so make sure you grab it below.

Tropical house is it right now. Even as the warmth fades away (unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere) and the cold starts to creep into your bodies, that summertime all the time mentality lives strong within this vibrant sub-genre. As premiered by the folks at TSIS, Kingston, Ontario based producer Shèmce takes the classic “Stand By Me” from Ben E. King and adds his own blissful spin on the tune. It is free, so make sure you grab this one.

Many artists go dark after an album, or rely on singles and remixes from it to keep the buzz alive. Not Andrew Bayer. He has been hard at work releasing more club oriented tracks like “Once Lydian“, “Bullet Catch” and the “England” EP. With his musical training, his ability to write and produce is evident with each individual song and as a collaborator with Above & Beyond.
The last time we spoke to Andrew Bayer it was around the time of the release of his sophomore artist album “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave“. Now one and half years later, one the eve on the biggest show of his career, joining Above & Beyond for ABGT100 at Madison Square Garden, we had the chance to chat with the DC based producer about his feelings on the show, how life has been over the past year and a half and what he has coming up. Read on for the interview.

The Glitch Mob’s sophomore artist album “Love Death Immortality” showed the poise and grit we heard in their previous efforts. Now the show is going on the road. They have already toured much of North America during the spring and hit much of Europe over the summer, but now they cap things off with a final few shows this fall, including some big venues like NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom and DC’s Echostage.
They will be joined on tour by The M Machine who are always a good time and have their unique sound to play for you, with Chrome Sparks kicking things off in his own weird, downtempo way. The Glitch Mob are masters of their own live show, so don’t miss out. Check out the dates below and grab tickets here.

Following up a tune of “Payback’s” magnitude would have been impossible for most, but Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have found a way to do so with ease. As Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman’s 4th release on Steve Angello’s wide respected Size Records, “ID2”, the duo show once again their remarkable ability to create powerful and emotive melodies that are fit for the biggest of stages. The duo continue on their restless pursuit of perfection with each track, as they create a perfect blend of intricately layered synths and a punchy bass line destined to get a crowd moving.
“ID2” is now available for streaming worldwide on Spotify as well as for purchase worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and all other portals.
With loads of new music set for release from the hard working duo, including the often requested “ID1”, now bestowed the name “Survivor”, “Zonk” and a collaboration with a certain Staar UK producer, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman show no signs of slowing down as the sun sets on the Swedish summer.
