Sandro Silva

Dutch phenom Sandro Silva has been on the scene since he was 15, soon breaking through with his release “Prom Night”. The mastermind behind the game-changing single “Epic” (he sheds light on it during the interview), Sandro Silva has proven he is not a one hit wonder, garnering a countless number of other well-received singles & remixes on labels like Mixmash, Spinnin’, and most recently, Revealed Recordings.

His most recent single, “Payback” hit the top ten of the Beatport main charts and has been a favorite of artists like Hardwell, Benny Benassi, Deniz Koyu and plenty more. We had the chance to chat with him about his most recent single to see what makes it different from other festival-styled tracks, ghost production, an accusation incorrectly thrown at him, and more. Read on for the interview and grab “Payback” here.


Progressive House | David Guetta ft. Sia – She Wolf (Falling to Pieces) [Extended + Remixes]

Posted by on August 7, 2012

David Guetta has released the follow up to his worldwide hit “Titanium” with Sia accompanying him on vocals. It is to be released as part of his re-release of Nothing But The Beat this September. No one has accused David Guetta (or his writing and producing team) of being very creative so do not surprised when you recognize the melody from “Metropolis” in here, however this song is going to be absolutely massive. It has just the right amount of dance flair to keep the haters at bay, while adding the radio friendly twist with Sia’s gorgeous vocals to continue his stranglehold of the airwaves.

While the dance piano sound has been beaten down to the ground and then some, Michael Calfan found a way to resurrect it for his remix and reconstructs the chorus using said dance piano, layering eloquently, keeping the sound fresh. Sandro Silva keeps the builds, interludes and vocals from the original, like Michael Calfan, but adds a drop that sounds almost identical to the ever potent “Epic”, though the progression is a bit different. I could see this one becoming popular for those who want to get the “Epic” sound in their set as this remix almost sounds like a bootleg. All of the mixes are great in their own right — from the radio friendly, yet dance leaning extended cut from Guetta, the blissful remix from Michael Calfan and the “Epic” remix from Sandro Silva, this is an impressive package from top to bottom.

Electro-House | Oliver Twizt and Sandro Silva – Gladiator

Posted by on April 5, 2012

Oh. Hell. Yes. I’ve been counting down the days until this release and now it’s finally upon us. What is “Gladiator,” you ask? Basically it’s what happens when Oliver Twizt and Sandro Silva light the fuse on about 400 tons of straight up dancefloor C4 (Cfloor?) and then watch as the whole thing explodes. For the record, I’m not exaggerating — I haven’t been able to get this hook out of my head for weeks. Yes, you’re going to have to cruise over to Beatport for the DL. No, I don’t want to hear you complaining. Because at the end of the day, when you’re over at your friend’s place and your iPod’s plugged in and 11:07 pm rolls around and now people are looking to you to take the gathering to the next level, you’re going to want to be able to reach for this one.

Michael Woods does a really good job with this remix and I may be feeling this one the most.

Electro, House | ULTRNX, Sandro Silva, & Lazy Rich | Electro-House

Posted by on May 5, 2011

This track is one of the most well rounded tracks in electronic music in my opinion. Even if its a remix, it still incorporates house, electro, and dubstep flawlessly. I can’t stop listening to this track.

Turbulance is a good track, personally wasn’t WOW’ed by it, but this remix definately takes the win. The beat is given a little spice to it, making what a lot of people love more awesome.

Lazy Rich releases some bangers, but no one seems to really have caught on to how good he really is. This track is just another great to show off his darkroom skills.
