Progressive House | Maarcos – Blaze (Dirty South Edit)

Posted by on July 15, 2013

Maarcos - Blaze (Dirty South Edit)It is always tricky when you see an artist who “edits” a track, like you see here. It could be something significant like what happened to “In My Mind”, which was close to a remix by Axwell, or something as simple as a better mixdown or a small tweak in one part. We will probably never know however. In this track Dirty South edits Maarcos’ “Blaze”, who is fresh from a split with Those Usual Suspects and has decided to stake it out alone. The track brings us back to the bigger songs we heard a few years ago, crafting a very club-friendly sound with churning chords, a punchy bass line and a soothing interlude. “Blaze” has already seen support from the cream of the crop top DJs like Axwell, Seb, Hardwell and Alesso, so grab it today.

Aussie duo, Those Usual Suspects have been in Dirty South’s crosshairs for some time. They were a part of the 2011 vocal anthem “Walking Alone” with Dirty South, as well as releasing “Burn Forever” late last year on Phazing Records. This time Dirty South adds his own small edit to their track “Blaze”, creating a monster for the summer season with its chunky bass line that is ideal for all venues. It already seen support from the likes of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso, and Dirty South has been playing it out for a couple months now, so expect to hear more of “Blaze” in the coming months. Release is coming soon on Phazing Records.

Coming off of his collosal collab, “Rift” with label head Dirty South, Michael Brun returns once more to Phazing Records on remix duties to finish out the year on Aussie trio Those Usual Suspects’ new track with Nordean and vocals from Erik Hecht, “Burn Forever”. The original is a solid progressive track, but Michael Brun steps it up to another level, adding his own melody to the drop and subtle piano chords, bringing out those peaktime hands in the air moments. The superb vocals from Erik Hecht bring the track together as Michael Brun continues to impress in his young and very promising career.

Dubstep, Progressive House | Topher Jones & Amada – Hello Chicago (Remixes)

Posted by on November 10, 2012

Topher Jones’ ode to his hometown Chicago got the remixes the track was begging for to give it the lift it needed. We start the package with a rather surprising remix from Ashley Wallbridge. He is known for his more traditional trance tracks as a member of Garuda Records, but on this remix he takes a more progressive approach with a big room build and a growling electro drop. The Tom Swoon goes for broke with as big a drop as you can get with driving synth chords and a smooth build, emphasizing Amada’s vocals. Those Usual Suspects remix utilizes chopped synth stabs and a chugging bass line to give some variation to the melody. Fellow Chicago producer, Stratus adds some fast paced, crunchy dubstep to the track, taking a totally different path taen the rest of the remixes.

Michael Brun is getting himself ready to make a big splash at the end of this year with some big releases on Phazing Records. Not only has he teamed up with Label boss and chief from down under, Dirty South on their upcoming single “Rift“, but he now has a remix coming out soon of Those Usual Suspects & Nordean with Erik Hecht on vocals (remember them from “Walking Alone”?). It is great to see the Haitian producers’s becoming more mature and evolve as he becomes a bigger player, one with lasting potential in the dance music scene.
