Albums, Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | FNT Premiere: Sgt Slick – Everyday (Dave Winnel Vicious21 Remix) From Vicious 21

Posted by on March 3, 2014

21 years of vicious

Vicious Recordings is turning 21 this year and celebrate this momentous occasion, they have compiled 21 classics and 21 new remixes of songs that represent the storied history of the label. In a genre that has only been around for about 35 years, it is all to often we see labels, clubs and other institutions fade into obscurity after a short run on top. To remain one of the great labels, riding the highs and lows of the industry and remaining a consistent force at discovering new talent and promoting great music throughout the years. Based in Australia, just a few of the guys the label has helped break include Avicii, Dirty South, Peking Duk, Angger Dimas and many more.

With the compilation coming out tomorrow on Beatport, we are proud to premiere the Dave Winnel remix of Sgt Slick “Everyday”. Those of you who are fans of Kaskade’s compilation albums (raises hand), will recognize the piano-heavy remix by Digital Lab from Dance.Love, but now hometown kid, Dave Winnel takes over the reigns for a remix fit for 2014. The stunning vocal is left intact as Dave Winnel adds a bouncy bass line underneath a bed of synths that are a mix of a throwback to when this tune was originally released and to the sounds of today. Stream the tune below before it comes out tomorrow. Check out the teaser for the compilation below and see the full tracklist after the jump.


Electronic | LIZ – U Over Them (Peking Duk & CRNKN Remix)

Posted by on October 26, 2013

Currently v obsessed with Mad Decent’s own LIZ. This remix is of her track “U Over Them” by Peking Duk and CRNKN (that’s pronounced “crankin'”) is just a really great jam. Short and sweet today – this is kind of a mix of a whole buncha different styles but it’s got an overall great vibe so indulge and enjoy.

Progressive House | Swanky Tunes & Peking Duk feat. James McNally – You Are Like Nobody Else

Posted by on February 11, 2013

Swanky Tunes leaves their heavy electro sound of late for their first single of the year, “You Are Like Nobody Else” tabbing Australian duo Peking Duk to round out the fivesome on this production. James McNally adds infectious male vocals to this track that shows the big room sound of both Swanky Tunes & Peking Duk with its emotive synths, prominent reverbed claps, a grungy low end and smooth piano driven builds. “You Are Like Else” is a strong follow up to Swanky Tunes’ collab with Kaskade “No One Knows Who We Are“, showing promise for them going into 2013 and also puts Peking Duk on the map for many as artist to keep an eye on with already several solid productions under their belt.

Indie, Progressive House | Passion Pit – Take A Walk (The M Machine Remix)

Posted by on June 22, 2012

The M Machine takes this great Passion Pit song (if you didn’t already get the original, head over to iTunes now and get it) and adds a progressive house flare to it. After seeing them put on a clinic at Starscape, I knew that this one was going to be great. They keep much of the original work by Passion Pit, using the horns and intricate melodies crafted by Passion Pit in the build leading into a massive progressive house drop. They utilize the vocals perfectly, add uplifting synth chords and a driving bass, making this a must have for all house or indie fans out there. The best part? It is free! Also below is another remix of “Take A Walk” from Peking Duk that slows it down a little, using the main melody of the original track as the central theme, while adding a grungy synth to the drop.
