Progressive House | Dzeko & Torres vs Crossways – Togi

Posted by on March 18, 2013

Coming off the release of “AMP” & their “Bounced” remix, Dzeko & Torres tab fellow Toronto duo Crossways to create “Togi”, out now on Monstercat Recordings who is coming off of the successful release and still highly charted “Heartbeat” from Vicetone & Collin McLoughlin. Using a vocal sample from Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant song” and a driving, minimal percussive drop, “Togi” sets itself up as a perfect weapon for any one of their WMC gigs. I have no idea what is going on with this video, but it is entertaining nonetheless.

Electro-House, Progressive House | Walden – Intropial (Remixes) [Preview]

Posted by on March 7, 2013


With several releases already under his belt this year and the video for “Intropial” coming out a month ago, Walden tabs three up and comers to remix his latest single on Big Beat Records. Dutch duo TV Noise provide a melodic electro track that does not provide a hint of much in the preview, but from what we hear, it gives the track an edge that may make it more suitable for the bigger stage. Pierce Fulton previews what is to be his second release of the year with a remix that uses a stripped back progressive drop that does not try to do too much, but is just what you want from Pierce Fulton. Ghost provides a dubstep rendition of the track with cruchy synths and fast paced laser synths and snares. The remix package is scheduled for a March 18th release date, just in time for the more “business” oriented side of WMC.

Electro-House | Lazy Rich – Insomnia (Incl John Dahlback Remix)

Posted by on March 7, 2013


Canadian Lazy Rich makes his return to Chris Lake’s Rising Music with a new single “Insomnia” tabbing the label head’s wife, Gita Lake for vocals. Gita Lake’s vocals accompany a smooth piano driven build that crescendoes into a vintage Lazy Rich drop with gritty low end synths and a thumping bass line. John Dahlback continues his high rate of production going into WMC with a solid remix of blaring bleeps and well timed electro growls.

Electro-House | Tiësto & Swanky Tunes ft. Ben McInerney – Make Some Noise (Dyro Remix)

Posted by on February 27, 2013

From one WMC to another, Tiesto & Swanky Tunes’ collab “Make Some Noise” first seen last year at WMC gets a Dyro refresher to put it back in sets just in time for one of the most important weeks in dance music. Dyro parlays this solid track from Tiesto & Swanky Tunes into one of his better remixes of late, keeping some structural elements of the original and using the vocals from Ben McInerney to his advantage, while adding his electro flare to the track with a powerful bass line, a fast paced melody and subtle melodic layers that bring together both the heavy and progressive elements of Dyro’s sound. It this the first of a couplet of remixes for recent Tiesto singles with R3hab and Quintino’s remix of “Chasing Summer” coming out next week.

Progressive House | GTA, Henrix & Digital LAB – Hit It!

Posted by on February 25, 2013


This track needs very little introduction. Already supported by just about every big name Dj in the business, “Hit It” has been one of the most sought after tracks heading into 2013 ever since its public unveiling at Size in the Park by Steve Angello. “Hit It” combines the talents of all 4 of these guys — using the bouncy percussion Henrix has quickly become known for with haunting builds and big room elements in the drop fashioned by fellow Miami natives GTA & Digital Lab. This song has already been huge up to this point, but with WMC just around the corner, its ascent may have only just begun.

Electro-House | Armin van Buuren & W&W – D# Fat

D# fat

First things first: Armin van Buuren might have a production credit on “D# Fat,” but it ain’t trance. Nope, this collaboration with Dutch powerhouses W&W is electro to the core; in fact, it takes a leaf out of the book of “The Code” (another W&W special) and delivers a pounding bassline and hard-hitting, crunchy synth leads. Don’t let the piano riffs at the beginning fool you — this track packs a massive wallop and is sure to get dance floors moving as we head into the WMC home stretch. In all, “D# Fat” is a reflection of the next wave of progressive and electro house — it combines the best elements of both genres to great effect.

Progressive House | Jewelz & Scott Sparks – NYMSN

Posted by on February 9, 2013


German duo, Jewelz & Scott Sparks have been on fire lately with their previous singles “Toxic Rush” and “Flashbang” garnering enourmous support and becoming staples of many Djs sets. “NYMSN” or “New York Make Some Noise” continues on the same style as their previous releases with a brooding big room build and a driving stripped back drop, set for the festival stage at WMC. Already garnering support from Mark Knight, Hardwell & David Guetta, their inaugural release of 2013 and on Cr2 records looks to propel them to an even bigger year.
