Electro | DSK CHK Teases His Seductive Debut Single “WIL” (VIDEO)

DSK CHK just teased his latest original creation entitled “WIL (What Is Love)” and did it with a “50 Shades of Grey” style trailer! The visuals and sound marry perfectly in a sexually enticing vibe that certainly compliments both the direction and artistry of the track. When it drops…  A sheer dance floor dominator, S&M style! Remnants of classic Swedish House Mafia piano riffs, haunting strings and the always noticeable female vocals of 90’s dance tune, “What Is Love” by Haddaway really build to a perfect climax both sexually and audibly. It’s refreshing to hear a proper house track that’s not in the direction of “hands up, jump up” and just stays balanced within a darker side of house, but still gives you that moment of, ahem, “explosion.”  The track is scheduled to release in Jan 2014, with a follow up vocal version and music video treatment.

UMF 2013UMF 15 was historic, it was epic, it was monstrous. It was the swan song of Swedish House Mafia and saw two weekends of performances from the best and brightest worldwide. A four minute teaser was released in April, but now the full, 17 minute aftermovie from Final Kid, has come to fruition. It covers all of the bases and will bring memories flooding back for everyone in attendance.


Progressive House | Steve Angello VS. Matisse & Sadko – SLVR

Steve Angello vs Matisse & Sadko - SLVR
When I listen to this song, I try not to laugh, but I can’t help it. It is just that much better than everything else like it right now, there is just nothing comparable. It has been a long time coming for the 100th release on Size Records, and this is the fitting monumental release. Bask in its glory, and be prepared for more tracks like this from Steve in the coming months and years as he continues to shed the Swedish House Mafia label and becomes the superstar label boss he was on the path to becoming.

Steve Angello VS. Matisse & Sadko - SLVR

I have been waiting forever for this song. The fitting, landmark 100th release release on Steve Angello’s Size Records, SLVR (pronounced “Silver”), is as colossal as all the releases that have come before it. This is why it is fine that Swedish House Mafia broke up, because then we can have songs like this. Look for it August 12th. Also have to love Pete Tong’s new shout “Pete Tong first play, don’t be jealous he got it first”

House | Depeche Mode – Soothe My Soul (Steve Angello and Jacques Lu Cont Remix)

Depeche Mode - Soothe My Soul (Steve Angello & Jacques Lu Cont Remix)
After his subpar free release a few weeks ago with Wayne & Woods for the Mio Energy Facebook campaign (try the stuff, it gets you WIRED), Steve Angello gives his first real glimspe at life behind the production curtain post Swedish House Mafia. Stuart Price dons his Jacques Lu Cont moniker for this remix as the two dance music icons link up to put their spin on the first single from Depeche Mode’s 13th studio album.

The remix keeps much of the sound and style of the original, while allowing for experimentation and nuanced additions by Jacques Lu Cont and Steve Angello, slowly building a synth laden climax over the course of the entire song. This track leans more towards Jacques Lu Cont’s current productions and you probably won’t be hearing this in a Steve Angello set, but it is nice to see him show off the variety he possesses in production. Maybe when he puts his Mescal Kid hat on, he would bring out this one.

Progressive House | Discopolis – Falling (Committed To Sparkle Motion) [Axwell Radio Edit]

Posted by on May 5, 2013

Axwell - FallingArguably the most revered of the three Swedish House Mafia members, Axwell always makes it count when he attaches his name to a release in his incredibly strong discography. Recently he has been quiet on the release front, having not released official remixes (not mixes) or originals since 2011. He breaks that silence now with this remix of Edinborough based foursome Discopolis.

The Axtone headman takes a very different approach from the previously released DubVision remix, going for a somewhat unexpected 105 bpm downtempo style, keeping much of the original rock sound of the original, while imbuing it with his own soothing house flare. With countless unreleased tracks still to come from Axwell, we can only hope this means more will come soon.
