Eric Prydz is the man. What was previously titled the “Waterpark ID” by his ID hungry fans on the torturous Eric Prydz forum (so many unreleased songs, it is hard to deal with) has been given a name by the melodic master “Liberate”. This is the type of a song that makes you feel like you are floating on a bed of cumulous clouds while being gently massaged by a warm sun rays and a steady breeze as you drink a cold mojito. Close your eyes and let Eric Prydz take you away. No word on release date, but it will be the title track from his next EP. Also if you are in Miami on March 27th, you are going to Eric Prydz’s party with Deadmau5 at the Ice Palace, it is just going to happen. It is the best party that night in town, hands down, no questions asked, where do you sign.

Wow, I hope you guys have your ears open for this one, cause this might be one of the biggest records of 2014. Lush & Simon have quietly been making a name for themselves in the EDM scene, getting support from the biggest DJs on the planet, and “Ahead Of Us” with Tom Swoon is one that might just make them certified superstars. Heck, Twitter even recognized this and just gave them their much deserved blue check verification. Unfortunately for us, their SoundCloud only has a preview of the record available, but meaning you should support them on Beatport by purchasing this anthem today! This is a must listen and a must download!

As someone in the tail end of his Aussie summer, Thomas Jack releases this remix as a farewell to the season filled with sun, golden coasts and warm breezes. Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s island hit “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” became a worldwide hit a few years ago and still receives some play on the radio and commercially. The Hawaiian goodness from the original is channeled by Thomas Jack as he injects a little here and there with some tropical melodies and easy rhythms. He has released this as a thank you for reaching 50k on Facebook & 30k on twitter, so grab it for free below.

Dinnerdate has been cranking out tunes lately. We are just seeing the fruits of his labor, but what is going on in his Munich studio is incredible with some outstanding, soothing deep house. He first got his acclaim for some highly touted remixes for José González and Editors, and now is applying his skills to originals. He was recently featured on Kitsuné’s New Faces compilation and has an EP coming very soon this spring. “Going On” is a free original to get you ready for that and shows the continues growth by the German producer with fitting vocal samples, groovy bass lines and soft and purposeful melodies. Get a sense of what a Dinnerdate live set would be like with the set below.

Melbourne bounce has hit the mainstream of dance music and you can put a lot of the blame or credit on TJR’s shoulders. It is obviously more nuanced than that, but as the sound continues to evolve, TJR’s tracks have been some of the most played in festival sets around the world for the past 12-18 months and it is from a weird, niche genre. His latest sure-fire hit single “Come Back Down” adds male vocals for a bit of a harder rock vibe to the bouncy, agressive bass line that comes with a TJR tune. Expect to hear a lot of this in Miami and beyond.

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.
