Electro-House, Preview | Wayne & Woods vs. Henrix – Jumangee (Preview)

Posted by on June 27, 2013

Wayne & Woods vs. Henrix 'Jumangee

When I hear the word Jumangee, I think of the terrifyingly awesome board game (spelled differently, I KNOW) that sucks you in for 26 years and spits you out with a wide assortment of jungle animals. Now how is that related to this track from Wayne & Woods and Henrix? Probably not at all, though the thumping lead in the drop could be like the elephant crashing through the nearest wall in your house as it charges relentlessly towards you. Watch out for that elephant and for this track July 8th. The elephant may be a more immediate danger, so take care of that first or else July 8th will be the least of your worries.

Events | Electric Zoo Phase 3 Lineup Announcement

Posted by on June 4, 2013

Electric Zoo 2012

Made Event’s Electric Zoo has announced the third phase of its lineup, filling in the blanks on stages outside of the two mainstages. There have been a few additions to the mainstages, like Deniz Koyu, Henrix and Vicetone, two guys we are really proud to see make to the MainStage. This round fills in the rest of the label and style specific tents like the Sunday School Groove tent, where you will find your dance music snobs and underground aficionados posted up all three days, the Riverside Tent, hosting Dim Mak, Dog Blood vs OWLSA & Fools Gold with names like Olver, RL Grime, Jacques Lu Cont, Alvin Risk, Congorock, & Yolande be Cool all in support.

One stage that is very interesting is the Hilltop Stage because of the eclectic nature of the artists each day. At first it seems like there is no rhyme or reason for the choices there, but depending on set times, it could be one of the best stages because of the transitions from uplifting trance in John O’Callaghan to a guy like Torro Torro and then to Bauuer, all within three time slots. It is a little disappointing to not see a trance stage, but with guys like Orjan Nilsen, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Khoma and Aly & Fila on the MainStage, trance will be just fine. Also many trance stages at US festivals have devolved into electro / big room sets with a smattering of trance sprinkled in, so it is not surprising to see one not there. There are still tickets on sale, with single day passes now being made available, and there are still a few artists to come, so be on the lookout for that. Grab your tickets here. Check the full lineup after the jump.



Progressive House | Capital Cities – Safe and Sound (Henrix & Darmon Remix)

Posted by on May 28, 2013


Notable Miami based producer Henrix teamed up with newcomer Darmon to remix the Capital Cities hit song “Safe and Sound”. Following the same sound as his collaborations with Jakob Liedholm, this remix strays from his hard hitting style and goes for the more uplifting approach. The result is a track that is definitely worth a listen.

Hardwell, Dyro, Audien & Henrix 5/26

Ready for a Sunday funday to remember? New York people, Governor’s Island Beach Club is getting ready to open back up for the summer after a star studded cast last summer that included performances from Dash Berlin & Tritonal, Alesso, Thomas Gold and Gareth Emery. On Sunday, May 26th, Hardwell will be joined by Dyro, Audien, Henrix and New York local Alex English for an 8 hour marathon event from 4pm to midnight on Governor’s Island with its beautiful backdrop overlooking the lower Manhattan skyline. If you want a variety of big room beats, this lineup has exactly what you want, ranging from the percussive heavy tracks from Henrix, to Audien’s brand of euphoric trance. On the heals of his massive Ultra set and his sold out “I am Hardwell” show coming up, the Dutch star is the logical first headliner for Governor’s Island. Tickets are now on sale, so grab them while they are still cheap / before they sell out.


Progressive House | Henrix – Rock This Dream EP

Posted by on April 9, 2013

Henrix - Rock This Dream EP

Henrix has been nearly unstoppable lately proving himself as a name to watch in 2013, with his Size Records release “Hit It” with fellow Miami producers Digital Lab and GTA still tearing up sets across the globe and leaving its mark as one of the biggest tracks of the year thus far. The EP sandwiches 2 Henrix’s signature driving tracks around another big room room collab with Swedish wunderkid Jakob Liedholm.

“Rock This Dream” has been sitting near the top of the DMC Buzzchart for quite some time now as Laidback Luke reaps the benefits of signing this track that was deemed “not EDM enough” by some labels. The opening vocals from Roland Clark set the tone for a powerful, hard hitting percussive drop that even Laidback Luke is dreaming about. The second collab between Henrix & Jakob Liedholm “Losing My Mind“, takes Jakob Liedholms seemingly inexhaustible ability to create uplifting melodies and pairs it with Henrix’s melodic tendencies, all accentuated by Giuseppe Viola‘s outstanding vocal. “Viral” may get the least buzz on the EP at the end of the day, but do not sleep on this driving track that uses a cheeky sample of “Kashmir” from Led Zeppelin.

Henrix, still riding high on the success of one of the tracks of the year thus far, “Hit It” is not sitting on his laurels, as we saw with his Miami Heaters Vol 2 EP, and it now getting set to release another 3 track EP, this time on Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records. One of the guys who has been there since the beginning, Laidback Luke reaps the benefits by signing “Rock This Dream”, which has been near the top of the DMC Buzz Chart for quite some time now, as well as the second Henrix & Jakob Liedholm collab “Losing My Mind” and a new original “Viral”. The EP is going to be massive and if superman Laidback Luke is waking up with “Rock This Dream” in his head, you know it is going to be huge. April 8th is the date to mark for the release.
