Hailing from the fishing village of Húsavík, Iceland, Axel Flovent could be the discovery of the year, with a sound reminiscent if Coldplay wrote a song with Passenger. “Your Ghost” is his latest release on Epic Amsterdam, a hauntingly beautiful modern folk record which have you zen for the rest of the day. It’s Friday, it’s been a long week, press play, and let yourself be taken away by a man from an Icelandic village, and his guitar.

Trance | Dash Berlin vs. Coldplay – Ticking Clocks (Dash Berlin’s Essential ‘Warmplay’ Rework)

Posted by on August 9, 2012

While it is true that Coldplay has become quite the polarizing band with almost equal the amount of people who adore them and people who hate them, it is undeniable that they have come up with two of the most recognizable melodies of the past 10 years with “Clocks” and “Viva la Vida”. “Clocks” has been mashed, bootlegged, remixed and generally abused over and over again since its release, but when the infallible Dash Berlin takes a swing at it, you listen as he connects on this impeccable rework of a classic. He adds a trance build and melody that molds perfectly to what Coldplay had previously constructed, adding vocal bits to help the melody soar. I am loving these reworks from Dash Berlin lately with not only this one, but his ode to California in his remix of Tupac’s classic “California Love“. NYC people, Dash Berlin will be at Lavo on August 23 in a great club show you won’t want to miss, so get tickets HERE (show up early). If you do not catch him there or did not have enough Dash Berlin for the summer (is it possible?), he will be main stage at Electric Zoo on Sunday, so do not miss his set as he will be in his element, primed and ready to go.

DJ-Set, House | Coldplay – Charlie Brown (Jacques Lu Cont Mix)

Posted by on August 8, 2012

The more I listen to this song, the more I love it. It flawlessly combines dark, club elements with happy vibes from the Coldplay original. He keeps much of the original melody and the vocals, while adding his own spin on it with a quick moving snare, an infectious whistle top line that will get stuck in your head, a dark, grungy melody to give this track almost a dual personality with the various styles coming together and mixing impeccably. You have to expect this from a veteran such as Stewart Price and we will see more from him soon. Also check out his Essential Mix recently aired on BBC Radio One, which despite his longtime friendship with Pete Tong and support from the radio station was his first mix. It combines a plethora of different sounds from nu-disco to techno to tech to progressive and everything in between. Tracklist after the jump.

Here is the much anticipated remix from Dimitri Vangelis and Wyman of Coldplay’s “The Scientist”. They have been teasing this for a few weeks now, but could not hold on to it any longer and decided to give it out today for free as an early Christmas present. We have been following these guys for a while now and they deliver nothing but absolute progressive masterpieces and this one is no different with a catchy whistle and piano build with John Martin’s vocals building into a break of sublime synths and pumping bass.

I’m excited to hear Coldplay’s new album Mylo Xyloto along with the remixes inspired by Chris Martin’s vocals. In fact theres is no one I would rather see tackle a remix than Fedde Le Grand. His outstanding remake of Coldplay’s Paradise, manages to take to me to paradise: a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and timeless.
