Arty - The one and only


Artyom Stolyarov, everyone’s favorite Ruski on the block, is by and large well on a path to becoming a godfather of electronic music. As I let my iTunes hit autodrive (read: shuffle) the chilling vocals from “Bliss” transported me back in time to a place that had slowly faded into a distant memory. Arty has journeyed to every corner of this world, quickly transforming himself into an international icon and becoming an inspiration for dreamers globally. As 2014 comes to an end he’s shown no signs of slowing down, with every year since 2009 pushing him further into the spotlight. If you’re in the LA area this week, scope out Arty at Exchange L.A. tomorrow night! (Wednesday November 26, 2014). Click on the jump for more!

Bud light wants you to turn up your night, but we want you to turn up your Tuesday (which can be the night as well). In to do just that as DJ duo, Immigré, who as the name suggests were born abroad and immigrated to the States in the 1990s. Val Fluery and Jasmine teamed up in late 2012, and have since released a host of remixes and mixes, while playing at clubs across the country. This mix that we are proud to premiere, features 26 songs in almost as many minutes with quick, sleek mixing that doesn’t just move from drop to drop, but blends in the best parts of each song and quickly. It features tunes from Grimes, Phantogram, Kaytranada, RL Grime and many more. Check out the full tracklist after the jump.


Progressive House | Angelika Vee – Turn the Lights Up (Leventina Remix)

Angelika Vee - Turn the Lights Up (Leventina Remix)

Leventina killed it in 2011 – 2012 with tunes like “We’re Gonna Start”, “Blonds Have More Fun”, “Revolution” and “Right Or Wrong”, but that momentum fell off largely in 2013 with some lackluster, somewhat generic big room tracks. These tunes were bookended at the end of 2012 & 2013 by their totally original remix of “Blood Pressure” and then the collab with EDX “Tempest”. They return to something more original & melodic with this remix of Angelika Vee “Turn The Lights Up”.

Angelika Vee is a super talented singer / songwriter and now producer who is now sticking it out on her own, much like trance vocalist JES. It is not that big a leap for many of these singers since they write the entire top line of most songs, which includes the melody, so to produce the rest of the song, and get all of the credit, is not that big a change. Leventina give the tune of boost of energy with a well crafted, big melody that fit well with the vocals.

Progressive House | Snow Patrol – Open Your Eyes (Karboncopy’s Festival Bootleg)

Snow Patrol - Open Your Eyes (Karboncopy's Festival Bootleg)

My affinity for Australian producers runs deep and wide with Marcus Santoro, probably the only Australian producer I consistently post. That is not to say that he is my favorite however, although he most definitely is, but the Adelaidean duo Karboncopy are also a pair of guys I am always keeping an eye on. In early 2012, roughly two years and 69 days ago to be exact, they released a remix of Rihanna’s “You Da One”. I was young and stupid at the time – nothing has really changed I suppose – but for some reason that song struck a chord with me. That song, along with the Swedish House Mafia remix of “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”, are the two songs that made me fall in love with the genre.

Not really sure why I shared that with you guys. Probably cause I’m lonely. Onto the important stuff though! Karboncopy’s official remix for “Collide” was a hit and, in my opinion, better than the original. After a string of official releases, they have returned back to their free, track giving away days in the form of a remix to Snow Patrol’s “Open Your Eyes”. The quality of their productions has come a long way since their first remix and they are only getting better with each release.

Trance | Andrew Bayer – Once Lydian

Andrew Bayer - Once Lydian

Andrew Bayer is genius. His album “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave” was my favorite full length LP from 2013, even after it was all said and done with others from Mat Zo, Feed Me, Avicii, Daft Punk and Sub Focus. He has returned to releasing club oriented singles, most recently with “Perth / Merth Mobile”. There are no weak segments of the tune, beginning with a thumping opening sequence that transitions into a magnificently crafted melody layered with big, reverbed piano that Arty uses so well. Bayer proves why he is one of the best once again with “Once Lydian”.

Progressive House | Disfunktion & Chris Arnott – Right Now

Posted by on February 3, 2014



Much like the hit love song of the early 2000’s, T Pain’s “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper)”, Disfunktion, a Dutch progressive house duo has not been at the forefront of peoples minds recently. It has been a while since their last official release but that has now changed. They teamed up with Australian vocalist Chris Arnott on “Right Now”, their newest offering on Zouk Recordings. In 2011 and 2012, they put out a lot of remixes and bootlegs and became known for their uplifting, progressive sound. That didn’t hold up however, as they have gone for a harder, not as melodic or generic sound since then. They have merged those two styles and the result is what we have now, a song with the uplifting feel of their early stuff as well as an example of their newer work. It’s good to see them progressing as artists because, quite honestly, their productions were starting to feel pretty bland by the end of 2012.
