Progressive House | Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman X Steve Angello – Payback

Posted by on April 22, 2014

Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman vs Steve Angello -Payback (Preivew)
Its here. The early contender for track of the year has finally arrived and we could not be happier. This is an example of a track that was not made to fit the trends of the moment, but rather to last for the next ten or twenty years. Originally played at last year’s WMC, “Payback” sounds like it was made today or even 5 years from now. It is proof of what timeless dance music can be. This deserves to top all of the charts, so grab it at your preferred outlet below.

Progressive House | Morten – Look Closer

Posted by on August 21, 2013

MORTEN - Look CloserMorten called this one a “timeless piece” to us and we will let you decide on your own what you think, but after several delays, Morten’s debut on Ash Pournouri’s PRMD label with “Look Closer” is here. A melodic track that is built for the summer, it does not try and overwhelm you with loudness and obnoxious bass, but rather leads you along with a subtly complex melody and a vocal top line that complements perfectly.

Trance | Audien – Iris

Posted by on July 3, 2013

audien irisIt has been a big week for Audien. First he released his followup to “Wayfarer”, that saw support from artists all across the dance music spectrum like Above & Beyond, Cosmic Gate, Armin van Buuren, Knife Party & Madeon, and now today added to the already star-studded Electric Zoo lineup. “Iris” carries that Audien sound with sweeping synth chords, atmospheric pads, delicate key play and a subtle, grinding low-end. Expect to hear this often on trance stages and throughout festivals during the summer as it creeps into artists sets and up the charts.

Trance | ilan Bluestone & Jerome Isma-Ae – Under My Skin

Posted by on June 24, 2013

ilan Bluestone & Jerome Isma-Ae - Under My SkinAs Anjunabeats moves on from its well-documented landmark 10th compilation released in March, first with Norin & Rad‘s “Bird Is The Word“ last week, they look to another label favorite in ilan Bluestone, who teams up with Jerome Isma-Ae to give us the hauntingly beautiful “Under My Skin“. First capturing the imagination of trance fans in Miami as the most saught after ID in Above & Beyond‘s UMF set, “Under My Skin” combines soothing, emotive strings and piano, with a pulsing, yet melodic synth driven drop, that makes this one of the standout releases on Above & Beyond’s label thus far this year. ilan Bluestone has been a steady riser on scene in the past year or two with a bevy or remixes and originals on Anjunabeats and Armada, including his heavily supported remix for BT‘s “Skylarking“, while Jerome Isma-Ae has long cemented himself as one of the stable forces in trance and progressive. This is a dynamite release from Anjunabeats so do not skip this one.

Electro-House | Autoerotique & Felix Cartal – The Alarm (Charlie Darker Remix)

Posted by on June 8, 2013

Autoerotique & Felix Cartal - The Alarm (Charlie Darker Remix)Canadian producer, Charlie Darker has been slowly rising in fame and stature since he was taken under the wing of Wolfgang Gartner last year with his “Atlantic / Pacific” EP signed to Kindergarten Records. He has been busy releasing a slew of remixes and originals since then, padding a growing discography, but few compare to what he conjured up here.

Charlie Darker keeps the “alarm” sound from the original, while adding a driving low end, to give the track the power and stamina that it lacked originally. This remix saw its fair share of plays during WMC and has been heavily supported by Hardwell. This remix has already seen its fair share of support, but look for that to increase this summer. The remix will also be featured on Hardwell’s Revealed Records 4 Compilation, set to release June 21st.

Nervo - Hold On (Viceton Remix)

On the heels of their Electric Zoo MainStage announcement, Vicetone release their hotly anticipated remix of Nervo’s recent single “Hold On“, originally previewed last month in Nervo’s radio show, Nervo Nation. The Dutch duo have seen a meteoric rise to fame in the past year with their crisp and powerful remixes, while adding a few choice originals to the bunch.

This remix is no exception, as the Protocol Records signees bring yet another potent melodic composition, with a guitar driven build, taking full advantage of Nervo’s vocals, and a short but punchy drop, that is sure to seep into sets this summer. It is great to see them getting noticed in a big way by DJs, first Nicky Romero and now Nervo, tabbing them for this remix. Look out for them touring North American this summer, some of the dates have already been announced on their Facebook page. You can also grab a minimal remix from R3hab & Silvio & Ecomo, as well as a full-bodied drum-n-bass remix from Dimension.

UPDATE: You can now grab the remix for free via Nervo’s soundcloud below as a thank you for 500,000 Facebook fans, so if you have not gotten the track yet do it now!

Progressive House | DallasK – Alienz

Posted by on April 30, 2013

DallasK - Alienz

Former DEFEP member and Kindergarten Records signee, DallasK gives us another release on the record label after the giving out a freebee in the Kindergarten Records Yearbook Volume One and releasing his single “Vice“. Much like “Vice” he combines euphoric, big room elements with a gritty low end that gives the track an edge and drives it home in a way that you don’t see from many other big room tracks. The prevalent spacey, panning arp brings in the title of the track. “Alienz” finds a way to cut like an exacto knife into the niche area of dance music that is both emotional and a bit brusque at the same time. Maybe that is what aliens are like, who am I to know. Maybe DallasK knows…..
