Electro-House | Swanky Tunes – Blood Rush

Posted by on September 4, 2012

As the first release on their own label “Showland”, like their successful radio show, Swanky Tunes have decided to use this inaugural milestone to reveal the hard hitting acid infused “Blood Rush”. The veteran Russian trio utilizes the usually obnoxious horn sound well with a slowed down interlude with a varied bass line that creates a great anticipation for the big drop of electro saws and a thumping bass line. Swanky Tunes have really emerged as one of the premier house assets in the world with each release becoming staples in sets of the world’s top DJs.

Electro-House | Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes – Here We Go

Posted by on July 9, 2012

Hard Rock Sofa and Swanky Tunes and perfect examples of guys who have been slowly plugging away, biding their time until their rise to prominence and after nearly 15 years of making music, growing and evolving along the way, they have finally become two of the premier house assets in the world, putting Russia on the map in terms of house music. “Here We Go” is yet another quality release from Axtone, and from the Russians, with its prominent, growling acid bass line that prevails throughout the track, a rising synth and the “Here We Go” vocal bit. This one has festival written all over it and is awesome live. It has been championed by Swedish House Mafia and is already supported by Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, Afrojack, David Guetta and more.

For the Track List:



Progressive House | Eitro – True Story

Posted by on May 21, 2012

There are just those songs that right from the first note forces a smile on your face with its uplifting, progressive melodies. It may not be something extraordinarily new or groundbreaking, but those who find a way to create this type of sound with some sort of variation strike deep into the heart of the modern EDM conscience. Eitro, recently signed to Sander van Doorn led Doorn records, has done just that with his latest track “True Story”. It gives us that style with uplifting piano melodies accompanied by subtle synth layers and a steady bass line, moving with the melody. Already supported by Sander van Doorn, Thomas Gold, Swanky Tunes and many more, this is a track you will not want to miss out on.

Also included is a really solid progressive remix of Lana Del Ray’s “Summertime Sadness” from Norwegian producer Bill Wants.

Progressive House | Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Russia (Original Mix)

Posted by on May 20, 2012

Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman couldn’t wait any longer and have released their much anticipated single “Russia” a day early. As a follow up to the incredibly successful “Roll The Dice“, “Russia” has a festival size anthem sound to it. The title is fitting because of the rise of Russian house artists with the likes of Hard Rock Sofa, Arty, Matisse & Sadko, Archie, Swanky Tunes and more. The duo provides us with a stunning melody with churning electro undertones and rising synths that crescendos into a maddening break lead by the aforementioned melody, a prominent bass line and various intricate layers to create this well formed production from the fast rising Swedish duo.

Compilation, Progressive House | Miike Snow – The Wave (Thomas Gold Remix)

Posted by on May 14, 2012

The Miike Snow remixes keep on coming from big name artists and each one somehow manages to be better than the previous remix. The genius German, Thomas Gold, gives us his take on Miike Snow – The Wave with a varying snare line, Miike Snow’s signature vocals that make them so easy to remix and an addicting, uplifting melody. With the Dirty South remix of Devil’s Work already getting plenty of work in sets all over the world, expect this remix to get much of the same treatment as a summer go to for many Djs during festival season.

Thomas Gold will be mixing the 2 CD, 32 track Axtone compilation to be released May 28th. It will be largely comprised of Thomas Gold tracks because he is mixing the compilation with some exclusive bootlegs of his, including a vocal mix of his number one single “Sing2Me”. It will include new edits and remixes as well as three new original tracks from Thomas Gold, giving us even more work from his extensive studio output. Tracklist after the jump

DJ-Set, Events, House | Inox Festival Toulouse Sets

Posted by on May 12, 2012

Starting off the festival season early and right, Inox Festival in Toulouse France brings together some of the best talent in EDM, bringing in fans from not just all over France but also all over Europe such as Spain, Italy, and Romania. It was a three night weekend festival at full capacity all three nights with the likes of Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Dada Life, Laidback Luke, Swanky Tunes and many more gracing the decks. There was something for everyone with techno, house and minimal being very well represented with Sven Vath, Stephan Bodzin and many more. Of the three nights Eric Prydz had to be the best set just because it is so rare to see him as an American, though he will be touring the states this summer on ID Fest, Swanky Tunes putting together an outstanding set from start to finish with brand new tracks, and Dada Life and Sebastien Benett bringing the highest energy sets, forcing me to walk home at 8am covered in vodka and champagne after Dada Life. The whole thing was madness and after the whole festival I felt like I had been hit by an 18 wheeler for about 2 days, but it was worth it with the amazing artists that graced the decks. Sets were recorded on Fun Radio, so the shouts will be in French, but enjoy these crazy sets. Some of the sets below and more of them and the tracklists after the jump. Eric Prydz set was not recorded.
