The Chainsmokers continue with their rapid pace of releases with a remix to The Colourist’s “Fix This”. It has a similar same vibe as many of their previous indie-house tracks but instead of the light, cheery sound that is usually a custom to them, it has a bit of a darker tone. It is an official remix but the label told them they didn’t want the song available for sale or free download so as of right now, it is streaming only.

Consider this a public service announcement. The Wizard is here and you aren’t going to stop him. Listen now, if you haven’t already and get to know the track. It sounds like “Animals”, but hey, Garrix knows what is working for him and is capitalizing on it. And to all the haters saying Martin Garrix is a fraud, just stop, you are making yourself look silly.

Avicii’s “All You Need Is Love” didn’t make the final cut for his album and was only available as a Spotify bonus track. If I had to guess, the reason being for that is probably because, aside from the catchy melody that is in every Avicii song, it was extremely one-dimensional and clearly one of his earlier productions from before his style progressed into what majority of the album consisted of. Maestro Harrell, a DJ, producer, singer and actor from Chicago is the man who gave “All You Need Is Love” some substance and made it into a track worth multiple listens.

Filtercrush, having had their edit of “Show Me Love” picked up by Tiësto and played out live, look to capitalize on that momentum with another strong remix of Passenger’s “Let Her Go”. Surprisingly, Passenger are a band that do not get many remixes, even though they seem very malleable for a dance music makeover. NYC duo, Filtercrush add their own spin on the track with a big, emotive melody and punchy drums, making it perfect for their live sets.

Didn’t really know what to expect out of this track when it first got started in my speakers, but once the ball got rolling, the drop blew my frickin brains out. It’s been a huge year for What So Not and this is the perfect way to top off the 2013 music career. It nicely full of melodies and hooks to please the ear but has a massive eruption of bass and extreme feeling that other songs cannot compare to. It’s a huge staple in his growing setlist for sure and still vibes to that signature What So Not sound so its a win/win for everyone. Look for this December 10th via OWSLA.

The flag bearer for Swiss house, EDX has become synonymous with a soothing, progressive sound that is such a refresher when songs are simply louder and louder these days. He has had a very good year, garnering remixes for the likes of Calvin Harris and Avicii, while adding several strong originals and collaborations to his already stellar back catalog.
His weekly radio show, “No Xcuses” provides an outlet for his own original releases, while also supporting his favorite tunes from others at the moment. This episode has a strong Swiss flavor, drawing not only on his own tracks, but others from Nora en Pure, Leventina, and Dave202. He matches that with the best house tracks of the moment from the likes of Hardwell, Dirty South and Sick Individuals.
Generally in the radio shows of big name DJs there are a few unreleased tracks, but it is rare to see the percentage in this mix. You will find not just one, two or even three world premiers, there are 4, yes 4 WORLD PREMIERS in this radio show. So buckle up and get ready to hear some brand new music from EDX and his friends. Tracklist after the jump.
