Progressive House | Marcus Schossow – Kings Of Summer Nights

Posted by on February 25, 2014


First things first, look at the top left corner of the picture for some hot stuff. Do I ever wish I could have been that couch for the night haha.. As a thank you for 150k likes on Facebook, Marcus Schossow has given away a new track titled “Kings Of Summer Nights”. As alluded to by the title, this song is a dedication to the late nights he spent as a teenager growing up in Sweden. The song is quite different from his current stuff and is instead a light progressive tune that is almost trance like at times. This isn’t the type of track you would expect from him but it’s great and we can only hope he makes more like it in the future.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Vonny del Fresco – Noir Designer

Posted by on January 12, 2014

With the sheer volume of new rappers emerging every day, it never ceases to amaze me how small the hip-hop community actually is. The interconnectivity of all us youngins’ once again came around full circle when “Noir Designer” graced my inbox earlier this week. Although I was familiar with Vonny del Fresco, I never had sat down and truly listened to what he had to offer.

The distorted voice and harsh passion he brings with every line, helps del Fresco paint a vivid picture of a woman caught up in the materialistic glitz and glamour. The almost-satanic sounding song is the antithesis of a typical ballad. As del Fresco explains,

“Noir Designer” tells the tale of a night’s encounter with a female living in a materialistic world, feeding off of greed inspired by her surroundings.

A beautiful exterior disguises inner ugliness.

The finer things allow her to feel secure, indulgence in excess–drugs, sex, sparkling nights–helps her cope.

She meets someone who understands her urges–a man who wants nothing more than to use her in exchange for giving her everything she desires.

A powerful message put forward in a strikingly blunt and confrontational manner is all summed up with a thought-provoking question: Is this modern love?

Progressive House | Arias – Viirgo

Arias - Viirgo

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. May your hangover quickly subside and you be ready for some football and the best meal of the year. One of my favorites putting out tracks in 2013, Frenchman Arias is back with another great celestial themed original “Viirgo”. Arias builds on the sound he has crafted in 2013 that is uniquely his own, while still evolving in the framework of driving, progressive melodies that make his tracks so special. The preview is only a minute long, but the picture is very clear on the quality of the track in that minute.

FYI | The Truth Behind

Posted by on November 14, 2013



“Yo Mel! I know you don’t have many friends and still don’t have a girlfriend  and also stay home most of the time so I’ve got the perfect site for you,”. That’s (roughly) what Middy said to me a week ago and I was admittedly intrigued. The thought of meeting a girl who loves Avicii, Zedd, Calvin Harris, Alesso, and that one Swedish House Mafia song as much I really got me going! Could I even find a girl like that at school?  Not a chance! I was stirring at the opportunity to sign up and finally get a gf at last! I figured it would be a bit of work though and I was already pretty tired, just had a piece of cheesecake ya know (super filling), so I took a nap. I woke up in a different state of mind however. Do I really want to look for love online? I don’t know, that’s what losers do… What about if things go well so we decide to meet up somewhere and it turns out we actually have a great time. We laugh and tell stories, spend the night telling each other about our childhood and what not. I then pay for dinner, drive her home, and she lies in bed thinking about me. I, on the other hand, lie in bed and cry because she has Megan Fox thumbs and a slightly askew left eyebrow so I have no other choice but to never talk to her again. There were many similar questions buzzing around in my head so I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to go through with it. A sticky stomach and a shameful shower later, it was time to get to work.


So… I did it. I signed up and attempted to get a date. Does this EDM exclusive dating site actually provide people with a chance to find love with likeminded individuals or was it all a waste of time? Read on to find out.

Dubstep, Electro, Trance | Seven Lions with Myon & Shane 54 Ft. Tove Lo – Strangers

Posted by on August 25, 2013

Seven Lions fans, rejoice! My eyes light up whenever I see Seven Lions’ name, and if you’re like me, you’ll be itching to dig into this tune if you haven’t already. He tackles this project with vocalist Tove Lo and house/trance production duo Myon and Shane 54. The song is part of the original motion picture soundtrack for Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It is an immensely ambitious track, even for a revolutionary artist like Seven Lions. Not only does it combine his signature cocktail of trance and dubstep, but we can hear a lot of house elements in the mix and, more interestingly, a heavy reliance on a gnarly minimal electro drop.


Hip-Hop | Dylan Owen – The Window Seat

Posted by on July 30, 2013


After a one year long hiatus, the prodigal son has returned. Dylan Owen is back ladies and gentleman, and from my insider information, he is here to stay. After hearing this song, I am convinced that he’s here to stay. The Window Seat is a slow, laidback beat that allows Dylan to tell his story. I know it’s a cliche comparison, but Dylan really is an artist, using the beat as a canvas, to paint a picture with his words. I couldn’t be more impressed with his coming back track, but I know this is only the beginning. Dylan Owen will do big things in the music world, and Fresh New Tracks will always have the first scoop. Grab the track for free courtesy of Dylan, and be sure to check him out on Twitter and Facebook.
