After listening to the remix package to Topher Jones’ “Save Me”, 21 year old Spaniard Josef Belani’s remix is without a doubt my favorite. I would be lying if I said it was unique because it isn’t. It’s what every good house song sounds like these days. Nevertheless, this is still a great remix. As well as featuring the catchy vocals of James Bowers and a build you could bathe in, this has everything you would expect from a great house track.

Well, top of the morning to all you champions of the sun out there on this fine Wednesday. My late night prowling led me to discover the sexy sounds of the revered King Henry and I’d be delighted to share my findings with you. This LA-based producer takes on current trends in music and turns them completely inside out in this awesome, enriching and totally satisfying manner. It’s a little trillwave mixed with trap and bouncin’ beats, one song he even identifies as “comic trap.” It’s the kind of stuff you can put on at parties to intrigue//impress all your friends, or just chill out and listen to in the comfort of your own bed. It’s versatile, it’s groovy, and it’s rad. I pulled a couple songs that might lure you in, Dayman in particular being my favorite. If you think it’s good, just wait till the final drop at the end of the song and then you’ll realize this King Henry isn’t jousting — er, joking around.
Check out King Henry on Soundcloud and social media for more, and you can download his first album at a name-your-price cost from Bandcamp.

So I was a little late on this one but you have to understand, I haven’t talked to a girl in a month and a half. I’ve been following Richello since like two weeks ago and I got to tell you, my last two weeks have been awful. Regardless, Richello is a great producer and has mastered his style of uplifting progressive house. “Uncover” by Zara Larsson went through a remix contest so in order to get posted you need to stand out, which his remix does.

It has been a crazy year for Vicetone. Ever since exploding onto the scene last July, they have wowed fans, artists and industry insiders alike with their uncannily crisp productions, big time melodies and prolific remix rate that does not sacrifice for quality. One such customer is Nicky Romero who has signed them to his label, Protocol Recordings, and by the looks of it (rather blurry, what are you taking pictures with a flip phone?) may be working on a track with them.
Matthew Koma has become one of the hottest vocalists in dance music, and from that he has launched his own solo career with his “Parachute EP” successfully released last year and an album forthcoming later in the year. Vicetone have continued their dominance into the 2013, though their prolific release rate has slowed up as we have seen more official releases from the Dutch duo like “Heartbeat” with Collin Mcloughlin and “Stars” with Jonny Rose. Building around Matthew Koma’s seemingly perfectly built for edm vocals, Vicetone add their own big room touch with a crisp, rock influenced synth melody that pierces through your speakers and fills the space around you. Look for more remixes and originals from Vicetone coming up, including a remix of Nervo‘s “Hold On“.

Skit is at it again. This is an incredibly euphoric remix, I wasn’t expecting it to be so much more calmer and uplifting than his last few remixes. The vocals breaking in at the second half of the track was a great touch, loving all the Hip-Hop type music coming from Skit. Seems he has found a good place in music.

Arguably the hottest producers right now, their singles “Lift Off” and “The Code“ are still heavily in circulation, while their “This Is What It Feels Like“ remix is the potent remix of choice for Armin van Buuren and many others. Not diverging from their bombastic sound, W&W unleash another massive track that follows much of the same structure and winning formula as “The Code”, providing an unrelenting bass line and thunderous synths.
One can criticize them for sticking to their sound too much or going with a sound that is becoming more and more common, but you have to remember that they helped bring this style to the mainstream and others followed them. Coming up, the gigantic Dutch duo have their collab with Hardwell, which was just recently finished, as well a few IDs on the way.

His live sets are always some of the best mainstage material, with impeccable mixing and his signature mashups that keep you on your toes at all times. He has become a favorite of Axwell and Axtone’s, recently putting together the Axtone 2012 compilation that featured plenty of his own material, new and old, in addition to showing off the label’s impressive recent discography, while also dusting off a critically acclaimed Essential Mix to finish off 2012.

We had the chance to talk to Thomas Gold a few months back about his plans for 2013, including the OneRepublic remix, his first gig, weird food experiences, possible label ventures and more. Check out his set from Ultra below and the interview after the jump.
