His latest “Where We Fit In” is pure gold mixing in the vocals of “Where Are Ü Now [Ember Island Cover]” and “Cool Kids” with the electrifying progressive house track “All the Way”.

Electronic | The Remix ‘This Could Be Love’ Needed

Posted by on March 9, 2015

It’s always exciting when you come across a track you can’t really put a label on or place in a genre. For his (or her) first release ever, AVNU has delivered a very ‘mellow’ and ‘chill’ remix that is rooted in 808s that has left all of us struggling to really define what sound this is. The one thing we do know is that this track is just beautiful and exactly what the original needed. The vocal cuts, the melodic but simple builds; everything about this track is what seemed to be missing in the remix competition Borgeous & Shaun Frank launched last month. Our hats are off to you AVNU.

Future House | Jack U Recruit Tchami To “Take U There”

Posted by on December 18, 2014

Diplo and Skrillex recruit enigmatic priest-garb wearing future house purveyor Tchami to put his incredible touch on “Take U There” featuring IDJ’s Kiesza. This remix is so good, it makes me want to pound a million shots of that anti-freeze laced Fireball and throw myself out a high-rise building. Just when I thought he would utilize those Tchami snyths we get an entirely new sound. Just incredible. I can’t wait to go deep with this tune all weekend. Tchami’s “Take U There” drops December 23 via OWSLA / Mad Decent, which can’t come quickly enough. Tchami. I need more Tchami! Tooooo good. [H/T HT]

Posted by on November 24, 2014

This is for all you kids in the chat box with absolutely zero taste in dance music. You know, the one’s who b*tch and moan about there not being enough progressive house slash brostep posted. I’ve pretty much had it with progressive house at this point but Quintino’s edit of Pep & Rash’s “Fatality” is a huge tune. There’s just no getting around it. The video is horrendous, but it doesn’t matter. Spinnin’ Records continues to pump out hit after hit. Incredible really. Pick this up on Beatport below.
