When you’ve been around the scene for as long as EDX has, you pick up a few tricks here and there that help you streamline your entire workflow. For the Swiss dance authority, that means his already-strong ear for production is only getting better, making it easier than ever for him to deliver quality house productions. Take a look at EDX’s releases from 2015 and you’ll see that he’s hit on nearly all of them across the board – “Remember House” to kick off the year, “Belong” and his “Indian Summer” remix of Sam Feldt’s “Show Me Love” over the summer, and to close out the year strong, EDX has released two massive tracks from his arsenal, “Revered” and “Want You (Then I Found You).” The former is a tech house masterpiece with thumping synths and a smooth vocal topline, while the latter features BB Diamond delivering her iconic croons over a deep house anthem. On top of his rigorous release schedule, EDX will be taking over Create Nightclub in Los Angeles this weekend and Ruby Skye in San Francisco in December for two special nights of his NoXcuses parties that you don’t want to miss.

For its second year, Electric Paradise has expanded greatly, now including art, food, design, and technology and a multi-stage experience to perfect the festival’s presence in Punta Cana. Reggaefusion duo Major Lazer, funk-master Chromeo, synth-melting Porter Robinson, and house guru Steve Angello top this year’s first phase of the lineup announcement for the biggest festival in the Caribbean. These names alone carry enough weight in dance music to be worth the trip alone, but the lineup doesn’t end there. Gorgon City, AlunaGeorge, Cashmere Cat, Cash Cash, Hot Since 82, Moon Boots, and Matthew Johnson add to the talent that will grace the island this upcoming December. Electric Paradise tickets are available through the official website.

Who says festival season is coming to an end? With Halloween right around the corner, and more festivals on the way, it’s clear that what we knew as festival season is becoming a year-round tradition. Electric Paradise is one of those festivals that is happening well outside of the typical summer season, but that’s not stopping them. While a large amount of the world is cold in December, the Dominican Republic enjoys warm tropical weather, which is perfect for some dance music-driven revelry, especially when the festival venue is on a beach. With 20+ world-class electronic music artists, including both DJs and live acts, Electric Paradise is seemingly living up to its name, and it’s sure to prove itself further in its second year, as it brings together music, art, food, design, technology, story-telling and paradise.

Future House | Classy Vibes Drop Tchami Supported “Poezia”

Posted by on January 18, 2015


Featured on Oliver Heldens latest “Heldeep Radio 33” Classy Vibes make their FreshNewTracks.com premiere with a future house original that dropped in December. Even though the track isn’t new, it’s a tune that flew under our radar that we hate we missed. I gave it the car test and it sounds incredible. It’s so good that even the king of future house (Tchami) supported the track at a recent Puerto Vallarta show. The only thing wrong about this track is that it doesn’t have a buy link. Big tune!

Preview | Zeds Dead & Oliver Heldens – You Know

Posted by on January 9, 2015


Coming as no news to us, Zeds Dead (who confirmed the collaboration at Lights All Night) and Oliver Heldens preview their “You Know” collaboration due out February 2nd on Spinnin’ Records. You know what grinds my gears? We had the scoop two weeks before anyone else. Of course, other blogs get the credit. Doesn’t matter though, we love to get too deep, and we’ll continue to bring the exclusives.

Can you guess the sample? It goes something like this.

Future House | Jack U Recruit Tchami To “Take U There”

Posted by on December 18, 2014

Diplo and Skrillex recruit enigmatic priest-garb wearing future house purveyor Tchami to put his incredible touch on “Take U There” featuring IDJ’s Kiesza. This remix is so good, it makes me want to pound a million shots of that anti-freeze laced Fireball and throw myself out a high-rise building. Just when I thought he would utilize those Tchami snyths we get an entirely new sound. Just incredible. I can’t wait to go deep with this tune all weekend. Tchami’s “Take U There” drops December 23 via OWSLA / Mad Decent, which can’t come quickly enough. Tchami. I need more Tchami! Tooooo good. [H/T HT]

Future House | Showtek Redies “90s By Nature” Featuring MC Ambush

Posted by on December 15, 2014

Showtek90sByNature
Everyone is making future house tunes, which I can’t be upset about. It’s a new sound (pioneered
largely by Tchami and Oliver Heldens) that artists who previously made generic progressive house nonsense (like Showtek) are now all over. Regardless, this is a fat tune. The only issue I have with it is that a producer named Girls Love DJ’s teamed up with Praia Del Sol to make a “Bigfoot” re-work that was released in September that sounds strangely similar. Of course, all the Soundcloud links are down, however, a Youtube video still exists. Play the two tracks side by side and tell me that isn’t a variation of the same track. I’m not accusing either party of wrong-doing, but something is up. What I find fascinating is that Showtek either scooped the track from these guys or was producing under a new name to avoid detection and criticism from his fan base. “90’s By Nature” drops December 29th.
