Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | FNT Premiere: Tom Piper – You Don’t Know (Karboncopy Remix)

Posted by on October 10, 2014

karboncopy

If we’re talking about two guys from Australia, Karboncopy is probably the duo who has provided me with the most pleasurable experience in the past 48 hours from a male. They have released some really good music in the past, but this one is my favorite and has been on repeat since I first heard it two days, or 48 hours ago. An official remix of Tom Piper’s “You Don’t Know” is what they were tasked with and it came out spectacularly. An understated piano carries the excellent vocals to the build where the anthemic melody takes over and climaxes powerfully at the drop. This remix is as good or better than the original, which is also below, and probably Karboncopy’s best to date. The stream can be found exclusively below and the song can be found on Beatport next Monday, October 13th.

Girl Fire | Galantis – Runaway (U & I)

With an “EDM” landscape full of similar sound acts, Galantis is a welcome breathe of fresh air. Despite their branded over-night success, they’re anything but, crafting hits well before “EDM” was a thing and you were still in high school dating cheerleaders. Last night, Galantis premiered their “Runaway (U & I) single on #BetaBPM (to much fanfare) set to release October 5th. The offering serves as the first single to their forthcoming album with no release date at the moment. Release date or not, Galantis is the next big thing in the electronic dance music space.

Progressive House | Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – ID2

Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman - ID2
No this is not some ode to a bygone era of constant Avicii IDs, this is simply just the name that has become branded to this tune, including on radio tracklists and to retitle it might damage the effect of the release. Let’s hope it doesn’t start a trend of artists releasing songs legitimately called “ID” because that would cause some serious problems for guys like Eric Prydz. Size has been on fire this year with their usual suspects of high energy tunes, but also a new smattering of deeper, groovier tunes that have escaped the clutches of his newly formed We Are All X imprint. In the mold of those big progressive tunes, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman return for their 4th release on the label, first since April’s smash single “Payback” that still echoes around the few remaining festival grounds and now filled arenas & concert halls. Expect to hear “ID2” plenty as the year closes out.

Another note worth mentioning, their Tom Ordell remix that was previewed last summer will finally get a release date soon, so stay tuned to Vangelis & Wyman’s socials for details.

I have listened through 3 times and it is stunning. I don’t say that lightly because of all of the hype it has gotten in past few months leading up to its August 12th release date. However, my words won’t really do it true justice, just go listen to it yourself on NPR now. Pre-order the album on iTunes here.

Electro-House | Chris Avantgarde – Fuel

Chris Avantgarde - Fuel

Chris Avantgarde inaugurates his newly formed label the proper way with an exceptionally strong first release. Produced by the founder himself, “Fuel” is a powerful, gritty, highly energetic track and probably his best to date. It is also one of the most well produced tracks I have heard in a while. Chris has a unique sound and his label is also unique, because all of their releases are free of charge. Never one to settle on generic, Chris Avantgarde and his new label are sure to be among those to watch going forward.

Kiesza - Hideaway (Bixel Boys Remix)

On the eve of their show at Webster Hall tomorrow (we may have some words with them, not like the words they have in hockey, but real ones), the Bixel Boys preview a new remix, this time for Canadian songstress Kiesza. “Hideaway” has quietly become an underground sensation with remixes already in the books by the likes of Gorgon City and Dzeko & Torres, with many more to come. Drawing us back in to the smooth and sexy sound we know from them after a more aggressive effort for Thomas Newson, the California duo create a jam fit for their own coasts and your pools. There is no release date yet, but we hope it is this summer so you can jam poolside.

EFIX & Flint did not hold back their emotions for their official remix of Steffen Linck’ “Sticks & Stones” released under Boy’s Deep. Dedicating this record to his mother, EFIX said this was his most sentimental music piece to date, and it must be the violin that takes it there. Spare 5 minutes out of your day and listen to this beauty, you won’t regret it, it gets deep! This is a must listen and look out for the release!
