Ookay - Starting Over (Lookas X Enzo Picardi Festival Trap Remix)

This song is about to blow up. The festival trap remix game was fist brought to fruition by Carnage and has taken on a life of its own in the past year and a half. However many just sound like chopped up festival songs with 808s. Lookas & Enzo Pikardi raise the bar with this remix that was played by the ultimate dance music tastemaker, Tiesto on the MainStage at TomorrowWorld last night. This remix is not to be missed, especially for your Saturday night.

If you did not grab this remix package, or want an upgrade in quality and style, we are giving away one red and black vinyl double LP, as you can see above.

After finally resolving some site issues and getting the chance to post up in one location for more than 24 hours, I am elated to present to you a recap of Fresh New Tracks’ favorite moments from this year’s Global Dance Festival.

Global Dance Festival is the hidden gem of music festivals, not-so-quietly tucked away between the soaring red rocks a few miles outside Denver, Colorado. This year marks the 11th running of the festival and to this day, Global has stayed true to its motive of keeping things fresh and innovative as both electronic music and the world evolve. Each day of the festival varied greatly from the next, catering to electronic music aficionados of every kind.
