Trance | Cosmic Gate – Calm Down (Remixes)

Posted by on November 5, 2012

German trance duo Cosmic Gate just dropped the full package for their single “Calm Down,” and while you’ve probably been hearing the original in some iteration for the better part of a year, solid new interpretations from Omnia, Ost & Meyer, and Zetandel (and an extended mix to boot) make this a nice treat for early in the week. Omnia’s remix has already been making the rounds, getting airtime on ASOT #583 and in Thomas Gold’s latest essential mix , and if you’re a fan of the young Ukrainian’s driving progressive style then you’ll definitely enjoy his latest handiwork. Ost & Meyer take a more restrained approach than Omnia but weave in big room synths that strike just the right balance. Rounding out the package is Zetandel, who pulls a Kaskade and furnishes us with a chillout mix that’s reminiscent of the latter half of Fire & Ice.

Fun fact: Omnia’s real name is Smirnov Evgeny Aleksandrovich. Now say that five times fast.

Electro-House, Mashups | Kaskade vs. Steve Aoki & Tommy Trash – Be Still Ladi Dadi (Kaskade’s Freaks of Nature Mashup)

Posted by on May 30, 2012

I’ve always been a big fan of Kaskade, but ever since “Fire & Ice” established itself during EDC weekend as our de facto car soundtrack he and I have been undergoing a serious renaissance. As we know, the 41 year-old loves treating his fans to free mashups (which usually involve the juxtaposition of soaring female vocals and unlikely backdrops); here, he layers the vocals from his own “Be Still” on top of Tommy Trash’s remix of “Ladi Dadi.” I’m personally more partial to “Be Still Big Bang”, as I find that Franz Novotny’s instrumental offers a particularly stirring context for the vocals, but this is wonderfully done and a great listen.

Dubstep | Netsky VIP Preview, Catalyst, & Adventure Club

Posted by on October 28, 2011

I can say without a doubt that Netsky is one of the top producers in Drum N’ Bass currently. Whatever this guy’s name is on is straight fire. Although this song is a little played out for my taste, Netsky just put it back into my playlist with this sick VIP remix. The only problem is it comes out on Novemeber 28th.

With Kaskade dropping his new album Fire & Ice, it only felt right to post a remix of one of his songs. Although Kaskade and Deadmau5 released this song a while ago, Catalyst is bringing it back in style. He has a history of dropping heavy dubstep remixes and he surely didn’t disappoint with this one. Dubstep + Female vocals = Banger.

Adventure Club is good about dropping new tracks, but I feel like their past few drops before were not up to par. I can happily say that they are back with another amazing melodic dubstep remix.
