Trance | Markus Schulz & Ferry Corsten – Loops & Tings (Extended Mix)

Posted by on July 30, 2012

Earlier this year, longtime buddies Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten joined forces on an epic rework of early-90’s anthem “Loops & Tings” by Jens. The finished product dropped on Beatport today, and if you’ve had the good fortune to see either of them perform live in the past few months (or were alternatively melting your face off at an illegal warehouse rave in the summer of 1993), you will recognize the hook immediately. Why? Because as Markus and Ferry have demonstrated, this is the kind of track that gets dropped at that pivotal moment when the crowd is primed, the kids have been put to bed, and by all accounts it’s time to get down to business. Their 21st century retrofit of this influential classic has set fire to festival tents, dance floors, and all of the weekly radio shows, so even if you’re not a devoted fan of the genre I’d highly recommend taking “Loops & Tings” for a quick spin.

Progressive House | Fedde Le Grand & Nicky Romero – Sparks

No two ways about it: today is a huge day for releases. In addition to Afrojack’s “Rock the House”, Fedde Le Grand & Nicky Romero’s epic collaboration with Matthew Koma is now officially out on Beatport. Middy has already suggested that “Sparks” will prove to be one of 2012’s anthems, and I can’t say that I disagree; with adrenaline-baiting builds and an aggressively high energy synth hook, this banger has all the necessary ingredients to become one of the defining songs of the summer. Though the vocal mix with Matthew Koma will not be available until August 6th, the instrumental mix shows just how powerful a track this is.

Hip-Hop | ANTHM Feat. Blu – Polaris

”Guess who”

Reminiscent of a late night 93 ’til infinity, Polaris can be described as quality lyricism, spacious rhythms, and a star that happens to be 434 light-years from Earth. Featuring none other than the lyrical veteran Blu, Polaris is a great track coming off ANTHM’s forthcoming Joy & Pain EP dropping June 12th.
