Right now I am exhausted, so I am going to keep this short and sweet. Last night we hosted Walden’s first Brightness Session on Mixify with Sick Individuals and Cash Cash in support. If you came out, from us and Big Beat, thanks for joining the fun and I hope you enjoyed the sets. As promised we have Walden’s set exclusively here for you for the next 24 hours to enjoy and download. Tracklist after jump.

These two young Djs put together mixes that are great for a party, studying or casual day drinking. Pierce Fulton puts together a more diverse tracklist from progressive to electro to more mellow house tracks with tracks from Pryda, Mat Zo, Tommy Trash, Pierce himself and others. Ludovika puts together a very unique set in that he uses this set to preview 7 unreleased tracks of his within the the mix. They vary in style from hard hitting electro tracks to big room progressive bombs driven by a strong piano melody. He puts together over twenty tracks in this mix including some quality mashes from various other producers. Tommy Trash provides a diverse selection of the best recent progressive and electro house tracks including some not so well known tracks compiling an excellent tracklist of 14 songs in this hour of EDM mayhem.

Lost in all of the WMC and UMF madness was the fact that Alesso was featured on BBC Radio One’s legendary Essential Mix show. Alesso really makes the most of these 2 hours flawlessly transitioning from one song to the next making the 2 hours fly by. You will hear the best of from the past couple months including “Trio“, “In My Mind” and “Rise“, as well as the best songs he has put out in his career. He puts together some really good bootlegs, combining the old and the new. He plays a whole host of unreleased tracks from himself and others including Avicii – Silhouettes (could it be a sign of a release at some point this year?) and the electro bomb “Boss” from Jonas Torn on Le7els. He plays his collaboration with Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso “Eclipse (Why Am I Doing This)“, the radio world premier of the vocal mix of his upcoming single “Years”, Alesso’s remix of Keane – Silence By the Night that he has been raving about and a brand new ID from Alesso that is really something special (as seen above, ignore the “ID3″ title, it is just an ID). This Essential Mix rivals Arty’s for early contenders as Essential Mixes of the year, so hit play and let Alesso take on a two hour EDM journey. Tracklist after the jump.

This is one of those collaborations that immediately grabs your attention and it does not disappoint. When you are listening to a Fedde Le Grand song you know you are getting a track with some of best production in the industry and with rising stars Deniz Koyu & Johan Wedel adding their influences to the track, it is going to be big. This song is meant to be played live with quick moving percussive elements, emotive progressive synths and a massive drop that will send any crowd into a frenzy. The video shows them collaborating on the track, the first play of the track and the crowd reaction, and for you Djs you see Fedde Le Grand’s amazing looking studio. Also after the jump are Sander van Doorn and Mark Knight’s sets from Sensation Belgium, which for those who went was an unreal experience and with it coming to America in October, this iconic event will only grow its legendary status. The sets from Afrojack & Dada Life were not recorded.

House powerhouses* Matisse & Sadko just dropped a great hour-long mix that’s packed with high-energy bangers and of-the-moment anthems. I love good mixes when they come along — they’re awesome for studying or working because they transition in a distraction-free manner (I used to study to a playlist that literally jumped from piano nocturnes to Daft Punk…incredibly bad planning), and I personally think they’re even better for having people over. Hate it when your friends get drunk and grabby with your music and whine about how they just want to hear “Hot N’ Cold” by Katy Perry? Problem solved. Put this on, hide your iPod, and let the pros DJ for you. The fact that Axwell’s monster remix of “In My Mind” is immediately followed by “Wild One” 2.0 (which is in turn followed by the beautiful Tim Mason remix of Stars Come Out) should honestly be reason enough.
01. Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike & Regi – Momentum (Original Mix)
02. Bobby Burns vs. Technotronic – Next Pump Up The Jam (Matisse & Sadko Mash Up)
03. Firebeatz – Where’s Your Head At (Original Mix)
04. Nicky Romero – Generation 303 (Original Mix)
05. DubVision – All By Myself (Original Mix)
06. Ferry Corsten feat. Ben Hague – Aint No Stoppin (Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano Dub)
07. Qulinez – Troll (Original Mix)
08. Chris Lake – Build Up (Tommy Trash Edit)
09. M-3ox feat. Heidrun – Beating Of My Heart (Matisse & Sadko Remix)
10. Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl feat. Georgi Kay – In My Mind (Axwell Mix)
11. Jack Back feat. David Guetta, Nicky Romero & Sia – Wild One Two (Original Mix)
12. Zedd – Stars Come Out (Tim Mason Remix)
13. Laidback Luke, Arno Cost & Norman Doray – Trilogy (Original Mix)
*see what I did there

I hope you all are as excited for “Quasar” as I am because the song is bigger than most. Arty premiered last night his first essential mix, masterfully weaving together a 2 hour mix of his own songs and songs of others to create a 2 hour ride of melodic, uplifting trance and house. Arty needs no introduction, but Pete Tong in his announced that Arty has forthcoming collaborations with Knife Party and Axwell, which should create some absolutely massive songs. Arty plays a few of his upcoming tracks including the much anticipated “Trio” with Matisse & Sadko, his “Walking Alone” remix, set to release on the 15th, a massive remix from fellow Russians Matisse & Sadko and some mashups he plays out to create this 2 hour journey of euphoria with Arty. Tracklist after the jump.
