Progressive House, Trance | Armin van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie – This Is What It Feels Like (Original + W&W Remix)

Posted by on April 8, 2013


With his fifth studio album “Intense” set for release May 3rd, Armin van Buuren has released the first single “This Is What It Feels Like” from the album with Trevor Guthrie on vocals. Getting its premier on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, “This Is What It Feels Like” is a departure from the more traditional trance roots that has made Armin van Buuren the beloved figure he is today, but as he has stated time and time again “Don’t be a prisoner to your own style”. I was a little skeptical at first, but the emotion and big melodies won me over and after seeing Trevor Guthrie perform it live at Madison Square Garden, I could’t help but love this tune.

There are few producers hotter than W&W right now. Their bombastic beats have taken the world by storm, becoming staples of mainstage and hard core trance sets alike. Their remix of “This Is What It Feels Like” got its fitting premier on the main stage at Ultra and has been a potent weapon for Armin at all of his shows since. W&W continue to show with this remix that their thunderous bass lines and booming synths are some of the most effective being made right now and show no signs of letting up. In other news, Armin revealed the tracklist for “Intense”, which you can check out after the jump.

DJ-Set, House | Swedish House Mafia Essential Selection 2/17/12

Posted by on February 18, 2012

Swedish House Mafia took over Pete Tong’s legendary Essential Selection show for the second time last night, revealing some information about upcoming songs and played tracks from a whole variety of genres from progressive to tech to electro to indie. They talk a fair amount about Los Angeles, where Steve Angello has been living and working for the past 4 years and what makes it so special. Deadmau5 came on the show to do a guest mix, talk about what is in store for 2012. They played a fair amount of unreleased tracks, including Alesso’s new single “Years” (above), Nari & Milani’s “Atom”, the vocal version of Alesso & Sebastian Ingrosso’s anthemic track “Calling” now called “Losing My Mind” (below) and Steve Angello’s finished copy of his signature track “Yeah“, which is quite different from what he has been playing out for the better part of a year. They also revealed the name of the new Swedish House Mafia single premiered at Madison Square Garden, “Greyhound“, which is slightly different from the version played there, but it is still an amazing song. Tracklist for the show after the jump.
