Dubstep, Electronic, Trance | Andrew Bayer – Need Your Love / England / Detuned

Posted by on August 21, 2013

Andrew Bayer - Need Your Love : England : DetunedOne of the most musical and compositionally gifted producers in dance music now, Andrew Bayer has served up a three track EP for your ear drums and they are delighted. “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave“, remains my favorite album this year and one of the most popular selections “Need Your Love”, got a club mix to translate its beauty to the club setting, which it did without losing any of the original elegance. “England” was the gem of “Anjunabeats Volume 10“, and now we have the full copy in all of its glory. First premiered at TATW 450 in Bangalore, “Detuned” is a glitchy, dubstep track that shows departure from what we normally get from Bayer, but still remains true to his sound.

Trance | Kaskade ft. Skylar Grey – Room For Happiness (Above & Beyond Remix)

Posted by on November 7, 2012

After playing this out for the past several months and getting its TATW premier a few weeks ago, Above & Beyond returns the favor to Kaskade on remix duties and gives us a heavenly remix of his single “Room For Happiness”. The remix takes full advantage of Skylar Grey’s vocals and adds the emotive trance qualities that this track was almost begging for in the first place.

This release comes on the heals of their announcement of the rebranding of their 9 year tenured radio show Trance Around The World, which will now be called Group Therapy Radio. The announcement to end TATW suddenly at the end of episode 449 came as a shock to many and fueled speculation as to what was going to happen, but this rebranding gives them the opportunity to do play what they wish uninhibited by genre or name. It will continue after TATW 450, which you can hear live this Friday.

Dubstep, Electro, Trance | Porter Robinson – Spitfire (Bonus Remixes)

Posted by on July 3, 2012

Team OWSLA coming in hot this morning with a little pre-holiday gift for everyone — a free, bonus remix package for two of the tracks on Porter Robinson’s Spitfire. I’ve been (im)patiently awaiting the release of Lazy Rich’s heavy, energetic remix of “Vandalism” for the past four months, so this was quite a pleasant surprise. Dirtyloud also takes on “Vandalism,” putting a dark and gritty spin on the track by folding in some ferocious synths. Finally, Bjorn Akesson’s unexpectedly pitch-perfect trance reboot of “Spitfire” is lush and haunting and might be the darkhorse best in show. The Swedish up-and-comer deftly builds off of Porter’s chord progressions to create an innovative and tightly-produced remix that sounds utterly fresh and ready for ASOT or TATW. Frankly, it reminds me a lot of “Je Envie De Toi,” which is high praise. Who knew that the glitchy, vaguely sinister “Spitfire” could lend itself so well to trance?
