Dubstep, Progressive House | Topher Jones & Amada – Hello Chicago (Remixes)

Posted by on November 10, 2012

Topher Jones’ ode to his hometown Chicago got the remixes the track was begging for to give it the lift it needed. We start the package with a rather surprising remix from Ashley Wallbridge. He is known for his more traditional trance tracks as a member of Garuda Records, but on this remix he takes a more progressive approach with a big room build and a growling electro drop. The Tom Swoon goes for broke with as big a drop as you can get with driving synth chords and a smooth build, emphasizing Amada’s vocals. Those Usual Suspects remix utilizes chopped synth stabs and a chugging bass line to give some variation to the melody. Fellow Chicago producer, Stratus adds some fast paced, crunchy dubstep to the track, taking a totally different path taen the rest of the remixes.

Drum & Bass, House, Trance | Andain – Turn Up The Sound (Remixes Part 2)

Posted by on July 11, 2012

Andain – Turn Up The Sound is a song that lends itself to be remixed with a smooth melody that can be easily manipulated and beautiful vocals from Andain. American Trance legends, Gabriel & Dresden, put together a euphoric trance remix with a quick piercing bass line and an uplifting melody will make you want to just close your eyes and float away. For me I like it better than the Tydi remix, but it is very close. French producer / DJ Tristan Garner adds his flavor to the mix keeping the vocals, while adding a hard chopped electro drop that will satisfy those looking for something heavier. Zetandel gives us a very smooth, relaxed remix hence the “Chillout Remix” with reverbed key play and a subtle bass line. Stratus goes all the way with a drumstep remix of the track with some crunchy synths layers with pitched synths.
