DJ-Set, Progressive House, Trance | Matt Fax – Barr (Andre Sabota Remix)

Posted by on January 9, 2014

Matt Fax - Barr (Andre Sabota Remix)Madeon may be the most well-known teenage French producer around right now, but not to be igonored is 17 year old Matt Fax, who in the past year has had his tunes played by the likes of Armin, Above & Beyond and Ferry Corsten, appeared for a guest mix on Group Therapy, and released tunes on Enhanced Recordings, Anjunabeats and other labels. He released “Barr” back in November, but it has been revived with a more upbeat rework from the man himself and a remix from Brazilian progressive house producer, André Sobota. Sobota adds a more progressive feel to the track, keeping much of the original in tact, but injecting a more blissful, soothing vibe to the already very melodic groove. Check them both out below and if you aren’t sick of these mixes already, listen to Matt Fax’s year end mix that mashes 60 tracks into 61 minutes.

Preview, Trance | Estiva & Cardinal feat. Arielle Maren – Wait Forever (Daniel Kandi’s Bangin’ Remix)

Posted by on February 26, 2013

In the immortal words of Carl Cox: Oh yes oh yes! This track is massive, end of story, and while I don’t think anyone really gets hyped by previews these days sometimes something comes along that’s so worthy that you’ve just got to post the YouTube video and grin and bear it. Closest analogue to this song? The inimitable “Satellite” by OceanLab. Similar lyrics, similar chord progression after the chorus, similar overall vibe. That’s not to accuse Mr. Kandi of ripping off the boys of Above & Beyond, however; this remix is excellent in its own right, thanks to an amazing instrumental and otherworldly vocals. Look for this to drop on Beatport on March 18th via Enhanced Recordings — and if you can’t get enough Daniel Kandi, check out his recent remix of “Jewel” by Solarstone and Claire Stagg.
