Progressive House | Arty – Together We Are (Remixes)

Posted by on March 18, 2013


With the original mix finally getting its release last month, Arty tabs some some hot in demand up and comers to remix his colossal single. Audien switches up the reverbed piano for a more synth laden approach, not straying too much from the melodic structure of the original and adding his own spin on the track. Norwegians, Carl Louis & Martin Danielle continue to display their strong progressive talents with this remix, adding their own synth line to the track, making it their own. Coming off of their epic 6 track “Metropolis Pt. II” EP, The M Machine provide a very different style of remix that you can only expect from them with a jarring low end, while still remaining true to the melody of the original.

For you purists out there, the instrumental mix is also included in this batch of remixes. Coming up next for Arty is the release of “Grand Final” on Ministry of Sound this April or May and also hopefully sometime soon the original mix of “When I See You” because Alesso butchered that track.

Electro | The M Machine – Metropolis Pt. II

Posted by on February 21, 2013


The M Machine put the world on notice at the beginning of 2011 with their mysterious album teaser for “Metropolis” and it was not for a while until we heard the stunning works that would make up their first Metropolis EP that solidified them as one of the most unique and dynamic producer trios around. They make their return to OWSLA with the second part of that original work “Metropolis” and the EP is anthemic, epic, cinematic — a roller coaster journey of emotions and sonic harmonization. There is no stone left unturned in this EP as The M Machine flex their production and creative muscles putting together 6 tracks that span a multitude of genres and styles, blending them and mixing them, taking a bit from here and there and giving each track a unique sound that works at that moment.

“Metropolis Pt. II” starts with one of the 5 vocal tracks off of the EP, “The Palace”, which infuses brooding synths with a powerful guitar melody over a 2 step bass line with quick alternating snares. “Ghosts and The Machine” and “Tiny Anthem” show the uniqueness and individuality that come with The M Machine’s productions and an indie-dance style that is found with few to none. They bring out fidgety 80’s synths and fast paced bass lines under superb vocals in these productions that show the diversity on this EP. “The Moon Song” comes at you without remorse with a hard powerful, penetrating bass line and a long anticipatory build of drawn out synth chords. “Schadenfreude” adds female vocals to the mix of a hard hitting minimal drop of a driving, pitched synth chords over a matching bass line. The EP ends with the dance ballad “Luma” that is much more downtempo then the rest of the EP, transitioning through several different sections almost like the suites of a piece of classical music. This is not an EP one can listen through once and feel like they have digested it completely — this needs several listens.

Electronic, Indie | The M Machine – Faces

Posted by on April 21, 2012

OWSLA decided to give the fans another free treat. This track is off of The M Mahcines debut LP, ‘Metropolis Pt. 1.’ Faces is an Indie/Electronic track, which to some including myself before listening, would find that to be unappealing. The melody of this track is wonderful, it really pairs with the vocals very well. This track is simple, but a jam for many no doubt. ‘Metropolis’ is set to drop April 24th.
