In honor of his birthday this past weekend, Viceroy has given out a gift to his fans in the form of this remix. It sticks to his summertime, all the time attitude, to music adding and laidback electronic flavor to this indie original from Strange Talk. It may be getting cold outside in the Northern Hemisphere, but that does not mean the tunes have to reflect the falling temperatures.

Prime is back with his follow up single “Lets Get Wasted,” an Electro-House record that wants you to get wasted with your friends. Expect a massive angry saw bass synth and and a tag line vocal “Let’s Get Wasted” that leads into the drop. This is the kind of tune you get wasted to at the club. and all of sudden things get blurry, but you can somehow keep your ears on the synth, making for that euphoric feeling. This is a must listen and support by purchasing the track on Beatport!

Max Elto, formerly known as Taped Rai is not the most well known name coming out of Sweden but did they ever do a fantastic job on this. They are a production and vocalist duo who made their first big appearance, under their previous name on “Just One Last Time”, the stand out track from David Guetta’s pop album Nothing But The Beat 2.0. Little under a year ago, the duo released the acoustic version of “Shadow Of The Sun” and that itself was great. It has been a long time coming but the original mix is finally out and is it ever amazing. Everything about this track from the vocals, to the build, to the melody, to the drop are all top notch.

Here it is – the much awaited new EP from FEM and Soundbender. The bass heavy EP features some appearances from Kurupt and even Riff Raff. Far East Movement’s Kev Nish says, “We’ve always been huge Dogg Pound and Kurupt fans and had the chance to meet Kurupt when we worked with Snoop. We thought how sick it would be to do something crazy reppin’ the West with Kurupt and here it is.” Far East Movement are currently featured on the #1 US iTunes Dance Album Dance (RED) Save Lives, Vol. 2 on their Kill Paris collaboration “There Will Be No Rain.” EDMsauce.com called the track “incredible” and Earmilk.com said it is “absolutely stunning.” Murder Was The Bass continues Far East Movement dive into production following their Remix EP of the group’s current single “The Illest.” Early this year, they released GRZZLY, a free mixtape for fans that featured a collection of song remixes along with a few new tracks.

Guest post from Swedish house maniac, Rebecca.
December started out pretty dope. The new Stockholm-based one day festival, ”November Lights” on the 30th of November welcomed December with a pyrotechnical masterpiece – namely Tiesto’s 2.5 hour set. There were of course other DJs playing that night, but they faded away in the shadows of the highly financed, visually grand performance. I had troubles getting up from bed for a week after from my poor, sore body.; the indicator for a good rave and my bad physique.
As most people now tune in on the ready-made Christmas playlists, I can’t really face it yet. There are still a couple of days left until Christmas hits with maximal power, and I try to enjoy every moment left before it’s time to travel back home to my family and loop Michael Bublé’s velvet soft version of ”It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”.
So, today I filled my ”Super Soft” playlist with a super soft package: the brand new EP release from Huxley. Inkwell is my favorite, and I match it with a cozy bed and fluffy duvet. Dive in below.

The opening track of Size label boss Steve Angello’s sets over the past few months, “Ulysses” has the power and dexterity you expect from a release on Size. As the owner of the increasingly influential Megaton Records, Mike Hawkins becomes a bigger name in dance music, and here he teams up with Pablo Oliveros Marcus Schossow to create a bouncy bass line and long, riveting melodic builds. The Scandinavian connection is strong here with 2 Danes and 1 Swede on the track.

Andrew Bayer, the maker of my favorite album of the year, “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave” has teamed up with fellow Anjunabeats members, Norin & Rad to form the duo Artificial. The US branch of the Anjunabeats family, the three of these producers have always looked to push the traditional boundaries of genre, and they continue that trend here. The track combines the upbeat complexity we see in Andrew Bayer’s clubbier selections, with the melodic abilities seen in Norin & Rad’s tunes. It is the perfect storm of their talents.
