Posted by on January 5, 2013

The information has slowly been coming out about the expedition’s arrival to New York, but now we finally have some concrete info about the show and it could not be better. ASOT 600 makes it arrival in New York at Madison Square Garden, transforming it into palace of trance, much like when SHM turned it into a nightclub a year ago.

Avicii has released the 6th episode of what was supposed to be his monthly “LE7ELS” podcast today after spending the last 3 months feverishly touring. He commences the podcast with his own half hour of handpicked tracks, starting with his highly anticipated collaboration with Nicky Romero “Nicktim” and then moving through tracks such as “Troll”, “Calling (Lose My Mind) and Eric Prydz sublime remix of Midnight City. For the throwback track for the podcast he chooses the classic Axwell track “Feel The Vibe” with its funky bass line and groovy melody. Avicii & his manager Ash talk about various things ranging from their House For Hunger Tour to his upcoming tour dates including his live tour he will be premiering at Coachella and using all summer. Sebastian Ingrosso takes over for the second half hour with hits from SHM such as “Antidote” & “Greyhound”, as well as playing Michael Brun’s widely supported progressive bomb “Rise” and his upcoming collaboration with Alesso & Steve Angelo “Ecplise (Why Am I Doing This?). Overall a very solid mix with a good balance of electro and progressive house and not surprisingly a strong presence of Swedish producers. Tracklist after the jump.
Also if you have not already, get tickets for Avicii’s arena tour this summer where he will be doing a live show that Avicii has been hyping a lot. More info including dates HERE.

Progressive House | Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso feat. Ryan Tedder – Calling (Lose My Mind)

Posted by on February 29, 2012

The much anticipated vocal mix of the summer anthem “Calling” from the Swedish super stars Alesso and Sebastian Ingrosso has finally arrived. With vocals from One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, the song is taken to a whole new level of euphoria and makes this track that was seemingly perfect even better. Alesso & Seb have been playing this out for a little while now and since its radio play on Swedish House Mafia’s second takeover of BBC Radio One, the anticipation built to a fever pitch, but now with its release we can enjoy this gem and add yet another release to both of these producers great careers. This is only the start for these two this year with Alesso making me look smart at the beginning of the year previewing his massive single “Years“, as well as his collaboration with Steve Angello and Seb “Eclipse“. As always Seb has his work with SHM, and their upcoming single “Greyhound“, the aforementioned collaboration with Steve Angello & Alesso and as Refune label owner he will always remain in the spotlight. It is not available for purchase in US right now, but will be soon!

Electro | Swedish House Mafia vs Knife Party – Antidote (Tommy Trash Remix) Premiere BBC Radio 1

Posted by on December 17, 2011

For those of you who didn’t catch a glimpse of the epic Tommy Trash remix of Antidote, here it is. My favorite part of this remix has to be the fact it is as heavy as the original versions of Antidote, you know, before they threw in the Will.I.Am esque  vocals. For you Knife Party and SHM fiends I threw in a download of the preview, considering how sick this remix is anyways.
