Progressive House | Moiez feat. LARCY – Illusions (Original Mix)

Posted by on October 13, 2014

I’m not a progressive house guy. However, this new offering from up-and-comers Moiez and LARCY caught my ear. Serving as the lead single off their forthcoming “Amerstdam Dance Event 2014 Album” Moiez recruits LARCY to create a sonic landscape all their own that’s already seen support from The Chainsmokers, Mako, and more. “Illusions” is available now on Cr2 Records. Don’t forget to grab the rest of the Cr2 Records ADE compilation with tunes from Landis, Crespo, Charity Strike & more.

Tip of the fedora to Stefan at TSS.

We got a listen a few months ago when Viceroy was in Dallas, and we thought it was an absolute ripper. Grab a drink, apply sunscreen, and find a babe because Viceroy is bringing the heat. Make sure you pick this bad boy up on iTunes and Beatport below. #SUMMERTIMEALLTHETIME

Deep House | Lissat & Voltaxx, Marc Fisher – Groovejet (Andrey Exx & Fomichev Remix)

Posted by on November 22, 2013


Today our guest writer Rebecca was bed ridden and hungover. You know what that means? Endless hours to explore music on the Internet! Here she brings us one of her favorite findings.

The year was 2000 and I was bouncing around the playground in my red, fake suede platform sandals with a golden Chinese symbol on each foot (mum thought the even taller, more Spice Girls-esque, glittery ones were not age appropriate), my white baggy capri pants made some unidentified crisp material, my printed bright colored mesh t-shirt and my hair in two buns on the head, held up by fluffy scrunchies.

If there would be a soundtrack to this scenery, it would be “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) – Radio Edit,” by the Italian DJ Spiller. I remember listening to that song in our cool 90’s Volvo, on my cool CD-player, at the cool discos in elementary school serving soda and potato chips. I thought at that time the track was by Kylie Minouge; she was my goddess so all cool stuff just had to have something to do with her, it was pure logic.

In 2000, I’d never heard about the genre “house.” Everything to me was pop, including “Groovejet,” but as it turns out, I actually was a little house lover already back then. Man, now I wished my parents had shipped me to Ibiza during the late 90’s, when the legends were all young and fresh, the lip gloss was too glossy and the sunglasses too tinted. I would take it all in, subconsciously as a 5-year-old, and be imprinted. This would naturally make me a DJ genius today. It’s just psychology and wishful thinking.

It took 13 years before someone brought the nostalgic house hit into the light again and made a remix of it that is EVEN better than the original. Lissat & Voltaxx, Marc Fisher – Groovejet (Andrey Exx & Fomichev Remix) made it to an honorable 3rd place on the Beatport top 10 list, and it’s no. 1 of the list in my neon coloured, hollographic 90’s kid heart.


House | Kaskade – Atmosphere (AMTRAC Remix)

Posted by on July 29, 2013

I had a predisposition to this song before I gave it a listen, just because I saw AMTRAC on it. Let alone the fact that I’m a big Kaskade fan and really enjoy the original track. As an artist, AMTRAC has an infectiously funky feel. His tracks ooze a deep yet fun, and usually soulful vibe. He always provides interesting work on the vocals of his tracks which help keep his songs incredibly interesting. He brought all of those signature elements to this remix coming right out of the gates with Kaskade’s airy vocals, almost isolated, and then gently lifting you up to a level where he can hit you with the beat. From there, the song is an ever changing adventure; each phrase different from, and yet complimenting the phrase previous to it. This remix really showcases AMTRAC’s sound and skill, and if you like it then definitely check out everything he has touched, it’s all equally awesome. This track was released as half of a remix package out now on Beatport.

Trance | Max Graham feat. Tania Zygar – Diamonds (Max Graham Club Mix)

A beautiful song for a beautiful day. Don’t be fooled by the mellow vibe — “Diamonds” boasts big, orchestral pads, an airy hook, and sublime vocals courtesy of Tania Zygar. This track is pure feel good music that’s pretty much made for warm spring weather.

Sidenote: in its Beatport description, this track is described as a “trancer.” I’ve seen this expression used before and I just want you to know that I don’t support it. Just because you’re planning to finish your ten-pager before going to pick up a sixer of Bud Light doesn’t mean you now have license to heedlessly use the letters E and R to nominalize things all over the damn place. Just yesterday my friend described an upcoming job interview as a “phoner.” This reign of terror must end.

Progressive House | Zero9 – Fire It Up

Posted by on May 16, 2012

Featured on Peak Hour Music (the label which just put out Porter Robinson’s “I’m On Fire”), Zero9 kills his latest EP “Fire It Up” with two massive Progressive House anthems. The first, named after the EP, features multiple synth build ups, then descends into a DOPE House drop at 1:48. The second, “Are U Ready?”, is also great, with a dope Complextro (a new sub-genre of EDM which utilizes elements of Electro House, Progressive House and Dubstep) beat, and has multiple incredible drops (check the first 50 seconds in). Grab the release on BEATPORT.
