Dash Berlin is the one of the preeminent trance DJ’s in the world. He routinely kills it with his “ASOT” series. He played so many gems over the weekend. In fact, Hardwell even showed up on his night off which signals he may be experimenting with new genres. What was most impressive, however, was the ID Dash played starting at 11:11. I know we know that voice from somewhere but can’t place it. What I do know is that it sounds like it could become one of the biggest trance songs to release in 2014.

Want in on a little secret that I hardly ever get around to sharing? Easiest way to find some new slappers is to go through a music mix, my favorite being Soulection Radio’s Show they do pretty often featuring new Artist’s and new songs on the regular. I haven’t taken the chance to listen to the whole thing yet but I’ve gotten pretty deep in and this definitely is a great one to start off with. So go on and take a listen, I PROMISE you’ll find something you will like.
Don’t know the name of the song playing? They have the whole playlist in the info section of the song on SoundCloud.

Steve Angello kicked off his new residency on BBC Radio One last night and the first ever guest mixer he had on the show was none other than our friends, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman. Favorites of Steve, the duo have been on his radar for some time now remixing “People Of The Night“, collabing with Size signee, AN21, on “Rebel“, duo out on the 20th and probably most famously, actually collabing with the man himself for their upcoming single “Payback”. If you have not heard a live rip of “Payback” yet, well take the time to listen all the way through and get a peak at what may be the biggest track this year.
The guest mix features 5 unreleased tracks of 7, 4 from them and 1 one from a new duo from somewhere in this great wide world. The mix climaxes with “Payback”, but before we get to that point, they kick things off with one of three never before heard, unreleased tunes, “Zonk” that combines the bouncy bass line and horn sound that has been popular in 2013 with the fine melodies we know they can craft. The other two are just next level stuff. These need to be out to the world in properly ASAP, but with their history releasing tracks, we can only hope these IDs will be released this decade, at least before 2048. Tracklist after the jump.

Madeon may be the most well-known teenage French producer around right now, but not to be igonored is 17 year old Matt Fax, who in the past year has had his tunes played by the likes of Armin, Above & Beyond and Ferry Corsten, appeared for a guest mix on Group Therapy, and released tunes on Enhanced Recordings, Anjunabeats and other labels. He released “Barr” back in November, but it has been revived with a more upbeat rework from the man himself and a remix from Brazilian progressive house producer, André Sobota. Sobota adds a more progressive feel to the track, keeping much of the original in tact, but injecting a more blissful, soothing vibe to the already very melodic groove. Check them both out below and if you aren’t sick of these mixes already, listen to Matt Fax’s year end mix that mashes 60 tracks into 61 minutes.

SnowGlobe was one for the books, there is no doubt about that. As expected, Tiesto crushed the first night, Kaskade did his thing the second, and Cut Copy brought in the New Year with a vibrant live set. What was unexpected was what happened when Kap Slap took the stage. His set was on the second stage, earlier in the night (5:15 PM), and was competing with the legendary hip hop group Zion I on the main stage. Regardless of the circumstances, come 5:45 PM, the Sierra tent was at capacity with every festival goer dancing their hearts out. Kap Slap kept the entire tent jumping, dancing, & singing for an entire hour and fifteen minutes. The highlight of his set was when he debuted his first original production which left the crowd with their hands in the air and ears asking for more. The transitions were flawless, his stage energy was unmatched, and he closed out his performance with one of his signature stage dives. Relive SnowGlobe 2013 with this heart racing heavy hitting hour and fifteen mix.
