Progressive House | AN21, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Rebel

AN21, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman - Rebel

It first got a lot of buzz March last year with a live premier by AN21 in Montreal on the One Last Tour, and then a radio premier on Steve Angello’s essential mix, but has since remained largely dormant. AN21 himself has been pretty quiet since his 2012 album “People Of The Night” alongside Max Vangeli, but this year has stated he will be bringing more music and more solo efforts. Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had a late surge in 2013 with their “POTN” remix and then “Silver Sun”, but have just been waiting on tracks to be released, like the all too often requested “Payback” alongside the bossman himself, Steve Angello.

“Rebel” is the next best thing with an upbeat progressive sound with well crafted builds and crescendoes grounded in a punchy bass line and rumbling horn. Man would it be crazy to be able to listen to Steve Angello’s hard drive for a few hours, the unreleased treasures he must have in there, one cannot even begin to imagine.

Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman BBC Radio One Guest Mix

Steve Angello kicked off his new residency on BBC Radio One last night and the first ever guest mixer he had on the show was none other than our friends, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman. Favorites of Steve, the duo have been on his radar for some time now remixing “People Of The Night“, collabing with Size signee, AN21, on “Rebel“, duo out on the 20th and probably most famously, actually collabing with the man himself for their upcoming single “Payback”. If you have not heard a live rip of “Payback” yet, well take the time to listen all the way through and get a peak at what may be the biggest track this year.

The guest mix features 5 unreleased tracks of 7, 4 from them and 1 one from a new duo from somewhere in this great wide world. The mix climaxes with “Payback”, but before we get to that point, they kick things off with one of three never before heard, unreleased tunes, “Zonk” that combines the bouncy bass line and horn sound that has been popular in 2013 with the fine melodies we know they can craft. The other two are just next level stuff. These need to be out to the world in properly ASAP, but with their history releasing tracks, we can only hope these IDs will be released this decade, at least before 2048. Tracklist after the jump.

It has been close to a year since “Rebel” was first premiered by AN21 on the One Last Tour in Montreal and then received its first radio play from Steve Angello on his essential mix later that month. Both AN21 & Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had quiet years in 2013 on the release front, concentrating on DJ sets and getting plenty of music ready for 2014. For Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman “Rebel” is only the beginning of what should be their best year yet that will include “Payback” alongside Steve Angello, which may come sooner than you know. The full version of “Rebel” will hit Beatport on January 20th courtesy of Size Records. Not a fan of modern art, but the artwork on this track is pretty baller. Big ups Size.

AN21 & Max Vangeli vs. Tiësto Feat. Lover Lover 'People Of The Night' (Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman Remix)

The good guys of Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman are finally here with a release in 2013. The duo are no stranger to big remix requests, like their Miike Snow remix and they take full advantage of the opportunity on this one. The original was a much more melodic effort from AN21 & Max Vangeli as they got ready for their album, but Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman inject their own big-room flavor to make this track relevant once again and put it right back into DJ radio shows and sets, as we enter the last few months of the year. Coming up, at some point, they have their second release on Size, “Rebel” with AN21 and many more.

Albums, Progressive House | AN21 & Max Vangeli – People Of The Night (Album Review)

Posted by on September 10, 2012

AN21 & Max Vangeli released their long awaited artist album “People Of The Night” this week after months of delays and teasers of tracks on the album to some mixed reviews. AN21 & Max Vangeli themselves have put out some very successful singles and blossomed into world renowned DJs in their own right, but the next step of an artist album was something they still had to accomplish. This album takes steps, but does not take the leap that we had hoped for from these two talented DJs. The listener is finishes the album not totally satisfied and left wanting a bit more. We have to wonder what were some of the other tracks that did not make the cut for the album and maybe the selection was not the best.

That is not to say that this is a bad artist album by any stretch of the imagination. The first time through you may feel that their were only a few tracks that stuck out to you and the rest were generic fillers. While there are a few tracks that do sound a bit generic, on further examination of this album, you begin to like this 15 track album a bit more. Read on to dive in to the rest of the album.

With their long awaited and constantly delayed album set to release in a mere 2 days, AN21 & Max Vangeli have released the 3rd single off of “People Of The Night” as a follow up to “H8ers” with Steve Angello and the title track, “People Of The Night” with Tiesto. While hardcore fans of their will lament that their sound has become a bit more commercial with their latest songs and left the sound of tracks like “Gama”, this big room track has some heat behind it. Julie Mcknight’s vocals are stunning, combined with festival made melody and varied bass line, this one will be a heavy hitter in AN21 & Max Vangeli’s discography for quite some time.

Steve Angello’s Size Matters imprint continues to crush the game with this latest release from AN21 (the younger Angello brother, incidentally — check out that family resemblance) & Max Vangeli. The duo’s smooth, hot weather-ready collaboration with Tiesto will be the title track on their upcoming album, which is set to drop on August 6. I’m loving the vocals and the unique flavor that the acoustic guitar sample provides — and, of course, those tight and supremely polished synths after the drop.
