Jeremy Olander hit us with a preview of his EP The Jackie EP via Pryda Records, and the sounds are on that progressive wave, blending trance, electronic, with deep house, and tech-house, but as my boys Alesia would say “fuck a genre.” Jeremy went experimental with this EP, and it’s hitting me right where it should. “Jackie” is currently giving me goosebumps, and all I had was caffeine: what an epic trip! “DLIGTY” though is the take off, and “Lauderdale” is the point of no return. If you’re into music, this is a must listen!

Elephante dropped off a massive remix last week of Dirty South’s release Unbreakable. This remix stands on it’s own and is defiinitely one of my favorites from the fastest growing producers in EDM. Make sure you keep up with Elephante and follow him on Twitter.

If you’ve been looking for some stunning vocals, you’ve come to the right post. Echos’ Remix of “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith is absolutely enchanting. Gentle, yet pricise vocals guide the poppy synths and soft beats along. The lyrics to this track are emotional, in the original and this cover version. Echos really took the vocals and made them sound unique. Overall the vibe is soft and has a dreamy atmosphere. Lucky for us, you can grab it for free!

As if an Odesza song isn’t cool enough on it’s own, here are six fantastic remixes of “Say My Name”. Most of the remixes on this album keep the upbeat vibes, and added their own flare. My personal favorite is the Emancipator remix because of they way the vocals were used and the rhythm. One remix that stands out from the others is the Ganz remix. It has more of an upfront feel to it, and more pronounced synths. All of these remixes are free on Soundcloud, and if you haven’t already, you can get Odesza’s album “In Return” on Itunes.

We’ve been watching Scottish talent Jack Eye Jones with increasing interest over the past few months and with good reason. The much loved Scotsman has been churning out the peak time festival tunes with increasing regularity, all the while gaining support from some of the biggest in the industry with particularly vocal support from heavyweights Avicii and Tiësto. Following on from the likes of Playground (which featured Tiësto himself on the remix pack) and Far East which caused quite a stir at EDC, we now have the latest high tempo salvo from Jack in ‘My Neighbours Know’ feat vocals from British talent STG.
Taking inspiration from the much loved mantra of the Scot “turn it up and let your neighbours know!” the track combines some trademark Jack Eye Jones percussion with a roaring synth line and a vocal feature that will no doubt go down well with clubbers. Coming this next month on Beatport via Jack’s own IBZ Records label, this one is sure to do some damage. If you think you might have heard this one before, that’s probably due to the fact that Jack is currently on a 15 date US Tour and this release has been featuring prominently. The countdown to October 20th begins.

The journey forges on as the Daytrip boys stop off in Port-au-Prince with fellow rising stars, Treez Lowkey, Daye Jack, and Kidepo. The song is ferocious, you can almost see these artists sprinting through the tropical Port-au-Prince landscape. The question is did they make it out alive?
Treez Lowkey busts out of the gate and kicks things off with his verse, followed by the croon of Daye Jack. However, it has to be the vocalist Kidepo who steals the show. His silky outro calms the storm and makes you think that whatever it was Daytrip was escaping from, they did successfully.

With his album coming out on November 4th, Dirty South has previewed two more tunes from the album, in addition to “Unbreakable” last month. There aren’t any drops on these tracks, especially “With You” that has more of an orchestral sound to it, with a slow, progressing arrangement as soft male vocals compliment the strings and steady chords. “Tunnel Vision” is much darker than what we have heard from Dirty South in many years with brooding, rolling synth chords and the haunting vocals of SomeKindaWonderful.
Both tunes feature bands on the ATM band roster, which Dirty South is a part of with his duo Ruben Haze, so it is no surprise to see them on these tracks and also nice to see him turn to bands for features. It is just another step in the new direction of Dirty South’s music. You can get “Tunnel Vision” now if you are in the US, so head to iTunes to grab it.
