Exclusive, Featured, Interviews | BT Talks Ghost Producing, ASAW, Sharks & More (FNT Exclusive)

Posted by on August 27, 2013

BT Profile

BT has become a standard bearer for innovation and excellence in dance music. He is noted as a creative producer of many different styles and sounds, as well as an acclaimed film scorer and programmer: the mind behind the now necessary stutter edit. His 9th artist album “A Song Across Wires” instantly shot up to number one on the iTunes dance charts and has produced such singles like “Must Be The Love”, “Skylarking”, and “Tomahawk”. We had the chance to chat with him last week before his show at Marquee, and of all the people I have had the chance to interview like Hardwell, Arty, Thomas Gold and Andrew Bayer, BT was probably my favorite guy to talk to.

Later that night we got to catch his set at Marquee that featured a heavy dose of ASAW and more danceable tracks from the lengthy BT discography. There were plenty of avid BT fans in attendance, so this was a party he knew how to play, even at a bottle service club like Marquee. Click past the jump to read our discussion on ghost producing, which he had some very interesting things to say about, the album, his passion for sharks and more.


Progressive House | Cole Plante With Myon and Shane 54 Feat. Koko LaRoo – Lie To Me

Posted by on August 13, 2013



I had the pleasure of being introduced these past 2 days to 16 year old DJ/Producer Cole Plant. Just looked up his music, and I had to share. I give this kid a lot of props and I have tremendous respect for him. He was shown the ropes by his father, working on records at his home studio, and has now finished up a tour opening for legend Paul Oakenfold, and headlined Lollapalooza in Chicago. Here’s a dope progressive house record called “Lie To Me” which was co-produced with Myon and Shane 54 and features the vocalist Koko LaRoo. Cole says that one of his favorite records is Motorcycle’s “As The Rush Comes,” and you hear these influences in this record. You can also anticipate a remix by R3HAB soon! Must listen, and support!

Preview, Trance | BT, Orjan Nilsen & Dash Berlin Release Album Previews

Posted by on August 5, 2013

Orjan Nilsen - No Saint Out Of Me Album
BT has been one of the most prolific trance (though his sound has evolved) producers over the past 10-15 years, not only making music for others (Paul Oakenfold is one name) and collaborating with countless artists, but also releasing 8 full length albums. “A Song Across The Wire” is his 9th album, where we see some of his latest singles and his progressive trance sound, but also a venture into dubstep. It will be released August 16th. Pre-order on iTunes or at Armada shop.

Orjan Nilsen has been a staple of the trance scene for years now, releasing some of the biggest tracks in trance. His album wlll try and take his ability to make monster singles and create one cohesive journey that trance is so adept at doing. It will be released August 30th, 2 weeks after BT’s album. Pre-order on iTunes at Armada shop.

Ok, the Dash Berlin album preview is a bit misleading because he is just releasing a deluxe edition of #musicislife, but there is a whole second CD filled with mostly new remixes, 2 new singles (though one was recently released) and some live video. The deluxe version will be released August 23rd, one week after BT’s album so get ready for some outstanding trance on Fridays this month. Pre-order on iTunes or at Armada shop. Previews and tracklistings for each of the albums is after the jump.


Trance | Paul Oakenfold – Turn It On

This track is not for the faint of heart. Dark and intense, with a relentless acid low end and a fast-paced Goa vibe, “Turn It On” somehow manages to be both futuristic and retro. Not shocking, given that Paul Oakenfold is an undisputed master of the trade, but it’s refreshing to get a track like this in the midst of all the bland, formulaic electro house that is being passed off as trance these days.

Progressive House | Paul Oakenfold & Project 46 ft. Daphne – Higher

Posted by on February 8, 2013


Paul Oakenfold made his fame with heart facing, high bpm acid, psytrance, but also had the ability to successfully cross over into more mainstream genres with more of his album material. With “Higher” we see him do just that and work with Canadian producer & Dj duo Project 46 on this melodic, uplifting big room track. Daphne’s vocals are the icing on the cake for this sublime melody put together by Paul Oakenfold and Project 46.

Electro, Hip-Hop | ELECTRO-HOP | David Guetta – Raise Your Hands feat. Miguel

Posted by on January 5, 2011

Guetta teams up with Miguel to take your ears on a ride, and let me tell you… this is one ride your ears can’t miss.

*update* after doing a bit of research, I actually think that this song was produced by Paul Oakenfold…Sound of in the comments if you know more. If this is true I won’t be surprised as Guetta seems to always get wrongful credit as of late for electro-hop hits.
