Albums, Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | FNT Premiere: Sgt Slick – Everyday (Dave Winnel Vicious21 Remix) From Vicious 21

Posted by on March 3, 2014

21 years of vicious

Vicious Recordings is turning 21 this year and celebrate this momentous occasion, they have compiled 21 classics and 21 new remixes of songs that represent the storied history of the label. In a genre that has only been around for about 35 years, it is all to often we see labels, clubs and other institutions fade into obscurity after a short run on top. To remain one of the great labels, riding the highs and lows of the industry and remaining a consistent force at discovering new talent and promoting great music throughout the years. Based in Australia, just a few of the guys the label has helped break include Avicii, Dirty South, Peking Duk, Angger Dimas and many more.

With the compilation coming out tomorrow on Beatport, we are proud to premiere the Dave Winnel remix of Sgt Slick “Everyday”. Those of you who are fans of Kaskade’s compilation albums (raises hand), will recognize the piano-heavy remix by Digital Lab from Dance.Love, but now hometown kid, Dave Winnel takes over the reigns for a remix fit for 2014. The stunning vocal is left intact as Dave Winnel adds a bouncy bass line underneath a bed of synths that are a mix of a throwback to when this tune was originally released and to the sounds of today. Stream the tune below before it comes out tomorrow. Check out the teaser for the compilation below and see the full tracklist after the jump.


Dubstep, Progressive House | Denzal Park & Dave Winnel – The Great Valley

Posted by on February 9, 2014

Denzal Park & Dave Winnel - The Great Valley
A trio of under rated producers from down under come together to create something that is very different for both parties. They have become known for their clubby, progressive house, and with “The Great Valley” they keep some of that sound, but go for something a little more mellow and different. They eschew the trend of big drops and go for something more soothing, with long melodic segments that almost act as though they are narrating some epic journey, only to be interrupted by a Seven Lions-esque dubstep bridge. It is great to see artists experiment outside of their comfort zone, and even better to see it work and it does here in “The Great Valley”.

Electro-House, Progressive House | Switchfoot – Who We Are (Remixes)

Switchfoot - Who We Are (Remixes)
Switchfoot? Middy have you lost your mind? I know they suck pretty bad, on par with Nickelback, but when Atlantic rolled out the remix package for their recent single “Who We Are” and then Dave Winnel sent over his remix, it became the first time I (and probably many of you) enjoyed listening to Switchfoot.

Dave Winnel adds something hard and menacing to the tune, while Michael Calfan goes for the route of his usual melodic self. Aussie duo New World Sound of “Flute” fame, provide their own take on the tune as well.

Progressive House | Zedd ft. Hayley Williams – Stay The Night (Dave Winnel Godspeed Remix)

Zedd - Stay The Night Ft. Hayley Williams (Dave Winnel Godspeed Remix)
Australian Dave Winnel returns with a free remix of Zedd’s recent smash single “Stay The Night” that is starting to get people past “Clarity”. Dave Winnel flips the original for a clubbier, more stripped back drop, while adding a similar synth melody and keeping Hayley Williams’ vocals for good measure. The remix is free, so don’t hesistate to click download.

As a bonus, here is an added production from Dave Winnel on Michael Woods’ Diffused Music label alongside fellow Aussie Archie (no not the Archie that fell off the face of the Earth recently), that has received support from the likes of David Guetta & R3hab.

Progressive House | Dave Winnel & Chris Arnott – Remember To Breathe (Original + FTampa Remix)

Posted by on September 18, 2013

Dave Winnel & Chris Arnott - Remember To Breathe (FTampa Remix)The names Avicii, Dirty South, Vandalism, Kryder and Angger Dimas probably all mean something to you. They are all artists who Vicious Recordings helped discover and released their tracks well before they hit it big. Names like D.O.D, Dave Winnel and FTampa may not be as big now, but they are guys on the current Vicious roster who are set to do the same. Dave Winnel’s “Achtung” got a ridiculous amount of DJ support from the likes of Axwell, Alesso, Arty, Sebastian Ingrosso, Porter Robinson, Tiesto, Tommy Trash and, well you get it. FTampa’s “Kick It Hard” became a late season favorite, notably championed by Hardwell and then powered its way into many other sets.

On “Remember To Breathe”, Dave Winnel goes for a more melodic, big room approach than his past few works, calling upon Chris Arnott to lay down some superb vocals. FTampa takes the song to another level, working with the original melody and adding his own complex, melodic key play to the track, accentuated by Mr. Arnott’s vocals. Also included is a Dave Winnel remix he did last month.
