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!

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.

If there is one thing that is lacking in the world of progressive house music, it would be Lana Del Rey remixes. You just don’t come across one too often. Have you ever heard a remix of “Born To Die”? I highly doubt so because there are like none. The Two Friends saw this vacancy in the market and filled it sensually with their very own remix. Guys, you know how sometimes you put stuff in other stuff but it seems kinda weird cause that’s where stuff also comes out of? That is essentially what Matt and Eli did with what was almost an official remix. It has a similar feel to many of their previous tracks in that it puts the vocals on display with a soft instrumental and then turns it up for the build and drop. This is the song many of their fans have been waiting for so if you happen to be one of them, enjoy.

Albums, Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | FNT Premiere: Sgt Slick – Everyday (Dave Winnel Vicious21 Remix) From Vicious 21
Posted by Middy on March 3, 2014
Vicious Recordings is turning 21 this year and celebrate this momentous occasion, they have compiled 21 classics and 21 new remixes of songs that represent the storied history of the label. In a genre that has only been around for about 35 years, it is all to often we see labels, clubs and other institutions fade into obscurity after a short run on top. To remain one of the great labels, riding the highs and lows of the industry and remaining a consistent force at discovering new talent and promoting great music throughout the years. Based in Australia, just a few of the guys the label has helped break include Avicii, Dirty South, Peking Duk, Angger Dimas and many more.
With the compilation coming out tomorrow on Beatport, we are proud to premiere the Dave Winnel remix of Sgt Slick “Everyday”. Those of you who are fans of Kaskade’s compilation albums (raises hand), will recognize the piano-heavy remix by Digital Lab from Dance.Love, but now hometown kid, Dave Winnel takes over the reigns for a remix fit for 2014. The stunning vocal is left intact as Dave Winnel adds a bouncy bass line underneath a bed of synths that are a mix of a throwback to when this tune was originally released and to the sounds of today. Stream the tune below before it comes out tomorrow. Check out the teaser for the compilation below and see the full tracklist after the jump.

For those unaware, Galantis is a recently formed Swedish duo made up of Christian Karlsson of the indie pop band Miike Snow and Linus Eklow, better known as Style Of Eye. The duo’s second original together, “You”, is really something else. The vocals are unique and clearly stand out as the forefront of the track. That is not to say the production is lacking however, as its lightness during the build goes perfectly with the high energy drop. Everything in this song just fits together so well.

Next up on Chris Avantgarde’s series of free releases is “Rise Up”, a vocal progressive house song with Joel Edwards. Each of the tracks he has given away so far has been in a different style as the previous, but for this one he is giving us an older song he made back at his old studio in Germany. It has the same feel good sound as his previous original “Colours” and just may be his best track yet.
