House | Billon ft. Maxine Ashley – Special

Posted by on July 23, 2014

London’s Billon team up with Maxine Ashley to create “Special” that’s heating up the charts. “Special” lives up to its name, as I predict this could gain serious traction and become a summer anthem. Make sure you download the tune via their site below. This is a tune and a half. Ripper city!

e zoo vinyl stage 2014

This is an announcement for everyone who was born before 1984 and actually listened to vinyls before they became cool. E Zoo is bringing the second half of the Sunday School experience, the Vinyl Only Stage which they inaugurated at Mysteryland, to NYC for the 6th edition of the festival. The expansion of Sunday School follows the trend of the strengthening underground and a growing popularity for house, tech and techno in the past few years. Each day will be hosted by a different purveyor of the plastic, with Behrouz on Friday, Frank & Tony on Saturday and the legend Josh Wink on Sunday. If you want to hear some crisp, clean vinyl, head to the 6th stage for the 6th year anniversary this Labor Day. Tickets are still on sale so grab them here.

Progressive House | Jose Gonzalez – Step Out (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Jose Gonzalez - Step Out (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Since this is the first track from The Chainsmokers since the infamous American Idol incident, I feel I should share something with you guys. First, some background. I have written what feels like a million posts for them as well as interviewed them. Also, I think about them like all the time and they do the same for me I’m sure. The Chainsmokers, Drew and Alex, called me fat a year and a half ago.They’ve also called me “mrjerkalot” and, most recently, told me to “keep it wrapped”. They’re just two awesome guys and, honestly, if you hold that terrible hit song and the American Idol thing against them, then you’re just kind of a jerk.


Enough about that, onto the song. It sucks. Just kidding. It’s an official remix for Jose Gonzalez’s “Step Out”. They have kept a lot of the original intact, but gave it some festival power to match the anthemic vocals. It’s being released on iTunes in two days, the 26th of June.

In a word where remixes are a dime a dozen, this new “No Rest For The Wicked” Joris Voorn remix is a golden sacagawea dollar. Put this is in your coin collection because remix is a tune and a half.

Progressive House | Sigma – Nobody To Love (Third Party Remix)

Posted by on April 25, 2014

What started out as a bootleg for the hip-hop classic “Bound 2” by Kanye West turned into an official release for the production duo Sigma. That then was remixed from its drum and bass style into progressive house magic by the UK based duo Third Party. They have not released a whole lot of music recently but they continue to keep the quality of their releases high with this one.

Electro | DVBBS & Borgeous – Tsunami (Jay Cosmic Remix)

Posted by on January 6, 2014


While I’m generally not one for hardstyle, UK native Jay Cosmic dropped his remix of the festival hit “Tsunami” earlier and it is incredibly good. The song starts cinematically after the brief intro and then builds and drops with the melody from the original, but then strays from the original and gets even better in the second half of the song. I am obviously terrible at describing hardstyle tracks but if you are a fan of the genre this is definitely one to check out.
