It is time for the weekend and since I missed last week, there is going to be A LOT of mixes in this post. I have about 24 hours of music and all of it good. We start things off with Hardwell’s yearmix that goes through his accomplished discography from this year and a selection of tracks from his label, Revealed Recordings. Next up is from yearmix from Nicky Romero that includes his numerous releases from this year and the unreleased “Symphonica”. Hook N Sling provides us with his take on 2012 in a high energy, bootleg heavy mix. Young Polish Dj Tom Swoon goes the extra mile and gives us 61 tracks in 2 hours for his year end mix, traversing genres from electro to trance to progressive.
After the jump we have the two latest episodes of The Drop that include exclusives from both guest mixers, Qulinez & Synchronice. Next week they are celebrating their 50 episode with mixes from Djs like Leon Bolier, Lazy Rich & Maor Levi all week so head to their Facebook page for full details. You will also find year end mixes from Dannic, Inpetto, who mix 50 songs in 1 hour, Dzeko & Torres who mix 40 songs in 10 minutes, Gregori Klosman and N3AKO. Lastly, included are a various assortment of other mixes and live sets from the past week or so, notably from NYE celebrations.

French supergroup Reepublic, after a summer of sporadic tour dates and studio sessions hinted on each of the member’s social media accounts, we finally have the first finished product of what these 5 men can do together. The group consisting of Tristan Garner, Gregori Klosman, Michael Canitrot, Sebastien Benett and Antoine Clamaran, do not deliver a mind boggling, groundbreaking track, but this is a one that surely broke the expectations I had for them and is one that expands the horizons and production arsenals for each of these 5 talented Frenchmen adding unique elements to this uplifting track with the soulful T-Elle on the vocals.

The Swedish House Mafia may be disbanding, but now France is making its own super group and it is coming out swinging. Reepublic, composed of Tristan Garner, Gregori Klosman, Michael Canitrot, Sebastien Benett and Antoine Clamaran have done a few gigs over the summer and have hinted at studio sessions, but we have seen nothing concrete from them. We now have the first preview of their first production “Turn Off The Light”, which combines progressive melodies with the soulful vocals of T-Elle. The preview is short, but it also shows the madness of the their gigs, so be on the watch for the full release November 19th.

Gregori Klosman was at Cielo in New York City a little over a week ago and though I could not make it due to Hook N Sling’s performance across town, judging from his set he was able to put together a dizzying set filled giving the those in attendance the best club experience possible. Setting the tempo for something a little more unconventional, as he declares at the start “No mainstream bullshit tonight” and while I happen to like that mainstream bullshit, this set is a great change of pace and is what a long club set should be. It starts slow with more of a tech house vibe and the rambunctious Frenchman builds the energy with progressive, electro and even dubstep, sprinkling his own tracks to keep it an authentic Gregori Klosman set. The mixing and bootlegs are top of the line, combined with his eclectic tracklists and willingness to be different, Gregori Klosman is someone to have on your “must see” list. Tracklist after the jump.

I hope you’re not sick of hearing “Spectrum,” because the full remix package is finally out and it delivers everything you could possibly want and more. So let’s just run right on down the list….after the jump, because there’s a lot going on here.

The rising Frenchman, Gregori Klosman has been known to give us a variety of different sounds from dirty dutchesque tracks like “Jaws” to hard hitting electro tracks like “Bounce” to more big room progressive tracks like “Kameha”. Minibar skirts along the lines of a more hard hitting electro house track, mixing with elements of the other two. The track starts with a chord progression that has a similar sound to Bingo Players – Rattle, fitting as “Minibar” has been signed to Hysteria Records, though the differences are clear, and a steady bass line that crescendos into a hard hitting drop of a thumping bass line and that previously mentioned chord progression on full blast. The drop is brought in by the line “F*ck there is no Minibar”, which is everyone’s feeling when they reach a hotel and come to that realization. A more big room progressive interlude accompanies us to the second drop for this very solid effort from the energetic Frenchman.
Also included is a quality complextro track from Psycaudio with great stops and pitched synth melodies that keeps you drawn in the whole way through.

Starting off the festival season early and right, Inox Festival in Toulouse France brings together some of the best talent in EDM, bringing in fans from not just all over France but also all over Europe such as Spain, Italy, and Romania. It was a three night weekend festival at full capacity all three nights with the likes of Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Dada Life, Laidback Luke, Swanky Tunes and many more gracing the decks. There was something for everyone with techno, house and minimal being very well represented with Sven Vath, Stephan Bodzin and many more. Of the three nights Eric Prydz had to be the best set just because it is so rare to see him as an American, though he will be touring the states this summer on ID Fest, Swanky Tunes putting together an outstanding set from start to finish with brand new tracks, and Dada Life and Sebastien Benett bringing the highest energy sets, forcing me to walk home at 8am covered in vodka and champagne after Dada Life. The whole thing was madness and after the whole festival I felt like I had been hit by an 18 wheeler for about 2 days, but it was worth it with the amazing artists that graced the decks. Sets were recorded on Fun Radio, so the shouts will be in French, but enjoy these crazy sets. Some of the sets below and more of them and the tracklists after the jump. Eric Prydz set was not recorded.
