Progressive House | Pryda – Layers

Posted by on June 18, 2013

Pryda - LayersNovember 24th, 2012. It is 4:30am and me and 3 friends are in a cab coming back absolutely exhausted from Eric Prydz at Roseland Ballroom. He had played encore after encore well past his designated 4am finish slot. No one had the energy to make a sound except for my friend who was repeating this haunting bass line that was stuck in his head that night and for many to come. He has had shown off other huge singles since then, like “Power Drive“, but this track has always been the prize. With “Layers”, Prydz has yet another huge smash single, intricately weaving together spacey synths, elegant strings and a bass line that will get stuck in your head, you can’t escape it.

Progressive House | Arias – Majoris

Posted by on May 4, 2013

The resurgent Parisian has been been quietly releasing some of the best progressive house this year with tracks like “Andromeda” and “Pegasus” showing his production potency. His third release of the year, the celestial loving Frenchman gives us another gem on his newly formed Olympia Records. Arias adds his progressive charm to the track with spacey pads, subtle arps, and an entrancing melody, but switches it up with a quick alternating bass line to add some texture to the interlude.

Progressive House | DallasK – Alienz

DallasK - Alienz

Former DEFEP member and Kindergarten Records signee, DallasK gives us another release on the record label after the giving out a freebee in the Kindergarten Records Yearbook Volume One and releasing his single “Vice“. Much like “Vice” he combines euphoric, big room elements with a gritty low end that gives the track an edge and drives it home in a way that you don’t see from many other big room tracks. The prevalent spacey, panning arp brings in the title of the track. “Alienz” finds a way to cut like an exacto knife into the niche area of dance music that is both emotional and a bit brusque at the same time. Maybe that is what aliens are like, who am I to know. Maybe DallasK knows…..

Dubstep | Underworld – Rez (Bassnectar Remix)

Did I tell you that this was an awesome week for releases, or did I tell you that this was an awesome week for releases? Add Lorin Ashton to the varsity roster of artists dropping bombs between February 11th and 15th. If you haven’t already taken his spacey, heady reboot of the tech-trance mindmelt that is “Rez” for a spin or two or twenty, now is the time to redeem yourself. Listening to this song is probably as close as we’re currently able to get to knowing what it’s like to be sucked through a wormhole. If that doesn’t sway you, this should: you know a track is something serious when Bassnectar uses it to usher in 2013 from the helm of a 360-degree LED pod (see above). “Rez” is out now on US iTunes and vinyl, if you’re into that, via Child’s Play Records.

Alternative | A Thousand Years – Flying High

Posted by on September 23, 2012


Zeké Africa comes through with a taste off his new Farmers In Fields Of Stars EP that drops October 1st. Flying High involves catchy samples laced with ambient pads and spacey reverb. I’ll just pretend like those glorious sounding words somehow depict the track properly. Honestly though, this tune makes you contemplate why you never used Fruit by the Foot wrappers as flavored rolling papers.
