FNT welcome new comer Jess Marquis with his latest remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Burn,” an uplifting club progressive house take on the UK vocalist’s tune. I first heard this track when Jess played it at his residency for Brite Nites at  Webster Hall a few weeks back, and my first comment to him after his set was: “I need that remix!” I’m all about uplifting feel good tracks with bright piano chords, and a ton of soul, and let’s just say he turned this mainstream drum n bass record into an anthem! Give us more Jess Marquez! This is a must listen and a must download!

Progressive House | Ellie Goulding – Goodness Gracious (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Posted by on January 21, 2014



An official remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Goodness Gracious” is the third release in January so far for The Chainsmokers and with their first original coming out next week, they are having an incredibly strong start to the year. They say this is their favorite remix they have done in a while and understandably so because it is one of their best productions. A lot of people say that Drew and Alex of The Chainsmokers are nothing more than one good looking guy and one okay looking guy (Alex) but that is clearly not the case. They had a huge year in 2013 and they are on pace to have an even bigger 2014. No word yet on the release date.

All the music that I listened to throughout the last 12 months enough to make me sick but somehow didn’t. The fields of music brought a bountiful yield in 2013 which allowed listeners like me to tune into more genres and artists than I could ever imagine. In order to cover all my necessary bases, I’ve drafted quite a comprehensive list (or two) missing prety much only anything Jennifer Lawrence related although if all the things she said this year were songs then they would 100% have made it on my list as well.

So, let the countdown, BEGIN!

3 Seconds into this tune and you already know it’s from Kygo, the 22 year old producer from Norway who recently reached a Hypem #1 with his remix of Passenger’s “Let Her Go.” This week the Norwegian remixes Ellie Goulding’s cover of The Weeknd’s “High For This” and it’s the laid back remix you needed to  help you get through this Fall Monday. I’ve been getting a lot of submissions lately, and what’s been standing out the most to me are these soulful deep house records, it’s been the vibe I’ve been leaning towards these days, so if you’re trying to get your sexy on, this is a must listen and must download!

Robot Dentist is one of my favorite producers at the moment, his Ellie Goulding remix of “Burn” has been making its round in the blogosphere, and with no time wasted, him and his team just released a progressive house official remix of Ayah Marar’s “Beg Borrow Steal” and it sounds amazing. From the melodious piano build layered over Ayah Marar’s epic vocals, to the anticipation before the drop, this record has it all. I’ve been blasting it all morning, this is a MUST LISTEN, and a MUST DOWNLOAD!

Events, Featured | Countdown to ADE Spotlight: Kastle

Posted by on October 1, 2013

Today is October 1st, which means in 16 short days Fresh New Tracks will be jetting off to the Netherlands for ADE: Amsterdam Dance Event, a five-day electronic music festival, conference, and playground taking over the city. Leading up to ADE, we’ll be filling you in on just who and what we’re looking forward to seeing most. And if any of you out there have any insider tips on the best acts to catch, drop either VMan or myself a line and we’ll be sure to add it to our list. 

After browsing through the hundreds of artists set to play at ADE, Kastle’s name was the one that lingered with me the most. The producer//philosopher has beautifully maintained a characteristic, innovative sound over the period of his career thus far. If there’s any slight possibility you’ve found yourself unacquainted with Kastle and his work (which really shouldn’t be the case), then let us give you a little background. Kastle’s music tests the limits of art and expression, ranging all the way across the spectrum from electronic dub, garage, and house to R&B and hip-hop.  Kastle himself, also known as Barrett Richards, is in an artistic sense a renaissance man by constantly exploring the virtues of all forms of art and philosophy. Browsing his Facebook, you might stumble upon an assortment of great music along and thought-provoking quotations with corresponding photos. I’m particularly fond of his Tumblr, which is almost like a window into Kastle’s seemingly infinite pool of inspiration.

Kastle will be headlining the Plafonddienst showcase at The Sugar Factory Thursday, October 17th. Joining him will be Liar, one of the newest additions to Kastle’s very own label, Symbols Recordings, and Tourist of the UK. I’ve heard rumors of these artists putting on live sets that are high energy and perhaps different than their typical sound, so I’m pretty anxious to see what these guys throw down. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Ellie Goulding remix Kastle dropped just a few days ago… (which is available for free download!)

Whether or not you make it out to Amsterdam for the weekend, be sure to indulge in Kastle’s vast selection of free downloads and his full length, self-titled album. While you’re at it, check out this interview with MTVHive where Kastle pairs cocktails with tracks from his album. Cheers! 


Progressive House | Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding – I Need Your Love (Swanson Remix)

Posted by on August 1, 2013


When the acapella of this song was given away by Calvin Harris himself, I immediately went to the washroom, splashed some water on my face and put some lotion on my hands cause they were kinda dry in preparation of an amazing remix that I knew was sure to come. I’m not really a huge fan of the original. To me it’s just a semi-enjoyable pop song. In fact, I just watched the music video for it and am now a bit annoyed because Mr. Harris and Ellie Goulding kissed a few times and as a guy I don’t really know how to react to two people kissing it’s like they are just making me feel bad that I don’t have a gf but whatever I don’t even care. I was waiting for somebody to turn the pop song into a huge, wonderfully atmospheric progressive track and when I saw that Swanson had remixed it I knew my search was over. To me, the original is a night spent watching cooking tutorial videos on Youtube while Swanson’s remix is a night spent hanging out with Miley Cyrus and watching her make a fool of herself like in that one music video. So, in conclusion, Swanson remixed this track perfectly. If you enjoyed Ellie’s vocals but wanted an instrumental with a little more substance then this is it.
