Lift Off #010

Posted by on March 23, 2013

Many things are changing now that spring is upon us. Girls are going to start wearing more revealing clothing, the weather is going to transition from cold to slightly less cold (I live in Canada), and Lift Off is no longer monthly. From now on, Lift Off will go up weekly on Saturdays, primarily because we didn’t like how the tracks we posted would end up being weeks old. This way, every track that goes up will be no older than a week. It will also mean that there won’t be as many songs on each edition as there were previously, though we feel this is an acceptable sacrifice for more up to date tracks. We start things off above with Reuben Keeney’s “Good times together” which is carried by a Kaskade like piano and soft vocals before hitting a progressive drop.

Candyland released an EP in honor of their Miami debut at WMC. My favorite track of the EP is their festival remix of Timeflies’ “Nothing At All”.

The Plastic People remix of the Imagine Dragons “It’s  Time” was my favorite song for quite a while. Markus Cole does a magnificent job of giving the song a progressive refresh that brought the indie-rock song back to life.

No uplifting chords or melodies to be found here, Kevin Drew’s latest “Halogen” is just a massive big room track.

There always seems to be a remix contest going on. You can usually tell when about 20 remixes of the same track pop up without a free download.  While most of them usually aren’t very good, Kevin Easy’s remix of Zara Larsson’s “Uncover” was my favorite.

Another track spawned from a remix contest, the Warkids return from the last edition of Lift Off with their remix of Duvoh’s “Come Over”.

Dutch producer Ludovika gives away his latest instrumental entitled “Smash”. Big room sounds in the signature Dutch style.

Tommie Sunshine and Live City combine forces for their remix of Capital Cities “Safe & Sound”. They provide the perfect, high energy beat for the superb vocals.

We round things off with something a little different. Sweden’s Alex Bastian lays down a chill, progressive beat, giving us a nice differentiation from the big room stuff.
