Albums | Above & Beyond Tugs At The Heartstrings With Acoustic Album

Posted by on February 5, 2014

above & beyond acoustic

Above & Beyond first made the acoustic dream a reality back in June with 4 sold-out shows at London’s Porchester Hall and then again with two sold-out shows at the Los Angeles Greek Theater, where a Sonny Moore decided to sit in on bass for a tune. The trio described the impetus for creating the album “The acoustic project is a reconnection with the musicians that we were before we met”. As they have said, Above & Beyond are musicians who craft their electronic tracks using instruments and then create the parts from their instrumentation. Knowing that, such an endeavor not only seems possible, it seems likely that Tony, Paavo and Jono would come together to create this stunning piece of work. Watch / listen to the live performance at Porchester Hall and read on for the rest of the review.

Bass | Chase & Status – International (Skrillex Remix)

Posted by on October 17, 2013

This is why we wait patiently when artists don’t release songs as often as we would like, or as often as they used to. Everyone wants a piece of the Skrillmeister (be it for positive or negative reasons) and he has his hands on a million different projects at once. In interviews, Moore has stated that he does not release material unless he is completely satisfied with the result, often citing difficulties deciding how to put together albums or EPs. I respect that mentality. Obviously he decided that this remix was ready to rock, and I would have to fully agree. I like a lot of the projects that Skrillex has contributed toward, and this remix is no exception. It is included on the new Chase & Status album, and feels right at home in that collection.This tune is well-crafted and really is an excellent remix of the original.  It shakes the walls, and I love it.

Electro-House, Trap | Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Damn Wright Remix)

Posted by on September 18, 2013

Wrecking Ball (Damn Wright Remix)Like a literal wrecking ball, this song has overtaken our collective pop conscience with Miley’s nakedness and the subsequent reenactments. Damn Wright, formerly Moore and Henry Fong, now just Moore (less is more?), has taken the viral sensation “Wrecking Ball” from the tweekqueen twerkqueen Miley Cyrus and added his own spin on it. Damn Wright keeps the inescapable vocals intact, while adding a slow build and trapped out echoey, electro drop to really capture Miley’s angst and naked distress. Grab the track for free and give it a spin, pun intended.

Electro-House, Exclusive | Audrey Napoleon – Poison (Moore’s Cure Mix)

Posted by on November 25, 2012

After a few somewhat lackluster productions, Moore returns with a quality remix of Audrey Napoleon’s single “Poison”. He kicks it off with a gradual build layered with Audrey Napoleon’s vocals that plummets into a grinding electro drop, chugging bass line and chopped vocal bits. The young Atlanta native continues his attempt at trying to paving his way through this crowded dance music field, and with a more consistent output, that very well could happen.

House, Progressive House | Lift Off #004

Posted by on September 22, 2012

Finally, we are back with another edition of Lift Off. We have a whole host of free gems from some good up and coming producers, more than usual, as well as some recent label tracks that should be added to your collection if they haven’t already. We start off with Tom Staar & Kryder and their heavily suported remix of “Can’t Stop Me Now” from Afrojack & Shermonology. Tom Staar was responsible for the festival favorite “African Drop” remix and with the duo teaming up for a “Don’t You Worry Child” remix, keep an eye for these two.

Next up we have a remix from New York native Odmark who puts together a delectable, funky nu-disco of this solid Mr Fluff track, giving us yet another reason to love the flavor of the year in nu-disco.

Young Australian producer, Walden has become a name to watch with his “In My Mind” remix becoming a staple in many sets across the world and a plethora of other free tracks raising his artist profile. His first release on Big Beat, “Warmonger” continues his rise to success with a churning progressive house track that takes a while to build, but once it gets there, you won’t be disappointed.

Following the Vicetone remix of Sparks, FNT regular, Moore, decided to take a stab at it as well, displaying his progressive proficiency taking a more easy going, piano driven approach to the track.

Spektrem in just their 3rd release have really come together to make a gem of a track with an incredibly addictive melody with vocals that create a superb harmony with the uplifting melodies. Read on for plenty more free gems.


Electro-House | Moore – Ollie

Posted by on August 30, 2012

Featuring one of the more famous Family Guy samples from weatherman extraordinaire Ollie Williams, Moore follows up his previous effort with Eric Solomon “Missing You” with his single “Ollie”, an ode to the clairvoyant meteorologist. This track harnesses the harder, edgier sound of Moore’s pedigree with growling synths and thumping bass lines, displaying the versatility he has to display. The Atlanta native has plenty more for us in the future and should be a name to watch for.

Progressive House | Moore feat. Eric Solomon – Missing You

Posted by on August 2, 2012

Moore is on a roll lately coming off of his 3 track EP “The Moore, The Better” and his remix of Krewella’s “Alive“. We saw his progressive side on the EP with “Visa”, though the majority of his releases have been heavier electro house releases and on “Missing You” he flashes that progressive style. He uses a soft melody with a chugging bass line to accentuate Eric Solomon’s soaring vocals, creating this relaxing, melodic track. Also peep the visuals with some hot chicks in a forest (why not) and footage from last year’s ID Fest with Kaskade. Oh the memories.
