Albums | P.O.U x Scott Forshaw drop progressive house rework of “Castles In The Sky”

Posted by on July 2, 2024

Melodic house duo P.O.U have teamed up with Scott Forshaw (Armada / Toolroom) to
deliver a progressive house rework of ‘Castles In The Sky’. Originally a No.3 UK hit for Ian
Van Dahl in 2001, this powerful new version is darker and more club-ready than its predecessor
and lands on the chart-topping Perfect Havoc, just in time for summer.

P.O.U – formerly known as Product Of Us – are Damion Hess and DAYL, two formidable DJs
and producers in their own right. As P.O.U, the duo coined their progressive sound on signings
to Anjunabeats, Nora En Pure’s Purified Records and Miss Monique’s Siona Records,
culminating in three Beatport No.1’s. Their underground sound has been a hit with the
respected outfit, Tale Of Us, who regularly dropped P.O.U’s ‘Just A Little More Love’ at their
Afterlife residency at Hï Ibiza. With residencies this summer at Destino Pacha Ibiza, Eden
Ibiza, and Ministry Of Sound, P.O.U will have crowds in the palm of their hands when they
arrive with this new single.

Joining P.O.U on ‘Castles In The Sky’ is Scott Forshaw, a DJ and producer who stands outs as
one of the foremost artists in the Middle Eastern dance music scene, thanks to his long standing
residency at key Dubai nightspot, Zero Gravity. Scott’s festival-sized productions have
streamed over 15 million times on labels also including Ultra and Perfect Havoc, clocking up
support from KISS FM to David Guetta. Beyond his solo endeavors, Scott has co-production
credits with renowned artists such as John Newman, Altego, Black Caviar, and more, further
enhancing his quality studio prowess across the industry.
As can be expected from these current artists, ‘Castles In The Sky’, takes a fresh approach from
its commercial trance origins. The vocal is used in subtle, hypnotic doses, allowing the focus to
remain on the track’s reverberating bassline and euphoric horns. With both hands-in-the-air and
head-down dancing appeal, this progressive house version will no doubt find its way into sets
this summer across the White Isle and beyond.
With a bigger sound and bigger energy than ever before, an exciting year lies ahead for the
independent label, Perfect Havoc, as it also lines up cuts from Oliver Nelson & Tobtok, Charlie
Hedges, and more. Now in its 9th year, Perfect Havoc continues to define crossover house
music and to build on over 10 billion global streams, six UK Top 20 singles and multiple
platinum, gold, and silver awards.

Bass | Get Down Low With Torro Torro’s Latest Remix

Posted by on April 7, 2015

Facebook | Soundcloud | Twitter

After playing this song literally once and getting about a 1:30 in, we realized we had a new song to repeat the duration of the week. Based out of Toronto, Torro Torro delivers tremendously on this rework of Badman, originally delivered through Dim Mak by Autoerotique and Max Styler. Some of the catchiest vocal chops we’ve heard in forever, followed by a contagious bass line and drum sequence. If this song doesn’t make you want to bust-out and show some kids up on the floor, your crazy. We’ll let the music speak for itself. Without further adieu….


Electronic | Disclosure – Latch (Lido Remix)

Posted by on April 16, 2014

Less than a week ago I posted a Disclosure remix by up and comer cln. and in doing so, highlighted the importance of originality in these ubiquitous Disclosure remixes in order for them to break the surface, hit the big time, soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, whatever. After hearing just a mere preview of Lido’s remix, it all became clear to me why this was one of the most anticipated Disclosure remixes in a minute. The Norwegian producer (not pointing any fingers this time) has made a name for himself after planting a seed in the scene long ago with his Cashmere Cat, “Kiss Kiss” remix (for you OG fans out there) and most recently, his rework of Yung Lean’s “Gatorade.”  This “Latch” remix is one of the more light-hearted, warm and fuzzy ones out there, perfect for any setting or time of day. Because, you know, for a second there I almost thought I never wanted to hear “Latch” again for the rest of the forseeable future but Lido really brought back the magic from the first time I heard this track back to life. Keep your eyes peeled for Lido’s EP release via Pelican Fly and your fingers crossed for it to be sooner rather than later.


UPDATE: Apparently Soundcloud was just not having it with this remix, so instead you’ll have to listen to it hear via this slightly sketchy Rinse FM rip, but hey at least it’s something.


Electronic | Disclosure – White Noise (cln remix)

Posted by on April 10, 2014

We’re approaching the one-year anniversary since the unforgettable release of Settle and yet, Disclosure remixes are still popping up at a steady rate. What this can only mean though is that for a remix to get any attention at all at this point has to really stand out. I think it’s safe to say Australian up and comer cln. hit the mark with this remix of “White Noise.” He brought this track around a full 180, turning it into a more passionate electronic ballad featuring strings and some very distant sort of tropical beats, not to mention somehow managing to transform Aluna Francis’s vocals into something more Amy Winehouse-esque, which works perfectly for this rework.

A quick glance at cln.’s Soundcloud is enough reason to expect big things out of this producer – his feed includes a delicate Drake remix (think Ryan Hemsworth) and a brand new Kilter remix that’s already heating up. Plan to spend your weekend with cln. on repeat.


Progressive House | The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE (Elephante Remix)

The Chainsmokers - #SELFIE (Elephante Remix)

The commercial success of “#SELFIE” has spawned numerous remakes/covers/edits/remixes and they are almost all terrible. Elephante decided to completely rework the song into a progressive version and it actually turned out quite well. I can’t honestly say I have any desire to listen to the original other than when I come across it naturally in my day to day life but I do have that desire for this version.

Electro, Hip-Hop, Trap | Cashmere Cat – Rice Rain (Twinztrack Remix)

Posted by on February 15, 2014

This rework of Cashmere Cat‘s “Rice Rain” is fun and catches your attention right off the bat. Personally, I love the use of the rain drop sample… so perfectly constructed. Twinztrack is definitely on my radar now.
