Progressive House | Max Elto – Shadow Of The Sun (Original Club Mix)

Posted by on December 10, 2013



Max Elto, formerly known as Taped Rai is not the most well known name coming out of Sweden but did they ever do a fantastic job on this. They are a production and vocalist duo who made their first big appearance, under their previous name on “Just One Last Time”, the stand out track from David Guetta’s pop album Nothing But The Beat 2.0. Little under a year ago, the duo released the acoustic version of “Shadow Of The Sun” and that itself was great. It has been a long time coming but the original mix is finally out and is it ever amazing. Everything about this track from the vocals, to the build, to the melody, to the drop are all top notch.

Tomorrowland 2013

Tomorrowland has come and gone. It is still with all of those who were there and they would probably do anything to go back. Luckily for those who were there and those who weren’t, Tomorrowland caught it all on camera and on radio to help us relive it. Here are a few select sets that help exemplify the madness that went down in Boom. More after the jump.



Electro-House, Progressive House | Rihanna ft David Guetta – Right Now (Remixes)

Rihanna ft David Guetta – Right Now (Remixes)
Pop vixen Rihanna has become one of the leaders in bringing dance music into popular music, for better of for worse, collaborating with Calvin Harris, David Guetta numerous times and on “Right Now” bringing on the talents of Nicky Romero for what he called a “basic” production. While the track has had staying value for radio play and commercially, being an anthem for the NBA playoffs, as a club weapon it needed a facelift and that is exactly what it got from a group of Dutchmen in this remix package.

Dyro does not change too much, but rather adds his own gritty formula that blends with the original melody, beefing up the bass line as a possible track for more commercial audiences. Sick Individuals took more liberties with the track, adding a rolling, pitched bass line and big room synths to make this my favorite of the two, though the Dyro remix has received the brunt of the publicity.

Electro-House, Progressive House | Empire of the Sun – Alive (Remixes)

Posted by on May 28, 2013

Empire of the Sun - Alive (Remixes)Luke Steele & Nick Littlemore, better known as Empire of the Sun, have created enourmous buzz for their sophomore artist album “Ice On The Dune“, set for release June 18th, notably after the success of their 2008 album “Walking On A Dream”. The lead single “Alive“, has already been a huge hit for the duo and not surprisingly has been remixed by some of the best in dance music.

Fast rising stars, Zedd and Mat Zo take the daunting task of doing an official remix for Empire of the Sun and hit it out of the park. Mat Zo brings back his atmospheric synths of earlier productions, while adding his own quick synth progression, keeping an appropriate amount of the original and vocal for a nuanced approach to the track. Zedd adds his own touch to the song with a fidgety, gritty low end, growling synths and chopped vocals showing his ability to mold his electro sound to an indie-dance track like this. David Guetta and his production team bring “Alive” to the festival stage with an in your face drop of grinding synths and thumping bass. Fellow Australian, M4SONIC adds a glitchy twist to the track with his own blend of gritty synths and fast paced key play.

Electro-House | Daddy’s Groove & Cryogenix – Vertigo

Posted by on March 18, 2013


Coming off of the release of “Stellar“, Italian duo Daddy’s Groove team up with Italian trio Cryogenix to release this high energy track on David Guetta led Jack Back Records. “Vertigo” uses ominous builds that lead into a simple, yet effective drop of thunderous percussion, a pounding bass line and the occasional electro stutter. This festival sized cut is yet another track that is among the many tracks we are seeing now that espouse hard hitting, percussive drops, designed to do the most damage on the biggest of stages.
