House | Zeds Dead & Oliver Heldens – You Know (Original Mix)

Posted by on February 2, 2015

Oliver Heldens and Zeds Dead’s much anticipated release “You Know” is out now on Spinnin’ Records, and it’s a blend of that UK Future house sound with progressive house vocals made popular by Zeds Dead. Already supported by the likes of Avicii, David Guetta, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, and more, I’m actually excited to hear who was selected for the remix package, so much work can be done with those vocals! This is a must listen and a must download!

Progressive House | Dutch Superproducer Releases “You Were Never There” Under B_RDX Alias

Posted by on December 30, 2014

SoundCloud

B_RDX woke up this week and felt the need to share the music he’s been working on, for the past few years with the world, blending progressive elements with electronica, to make for music that will have you taking flight. His track “You Were Never There” is a new wave of progressive, which brings the vibes, minus the cheesiness. Don’t want to give too much away, knowing the identity of this super producer, but all I can say is he’s from the Netherlands, and has been receiving support from some of the top DJs/Producers in his country! If I were a singer/songwriter, I’d be all over this! This is a must listen!

Deep House, Electronic | Huxley – Inkwell EP

Posted by on December 10, 2013

Guest post from Swedish house maniac, Rebecca.

December started out pretty dope. The new Stockholm-based one day festival, ”November Lights” on the 30th of November welcomed December with a pyrotechnical masterpiece – namely Tiesto’s 2.5 hour set. There were of course other DJs playing that night, but they faded away in the shadows of the highly financed, visually grand performance. I had troubles getting up from bed for a week after from my poor, sore body.; the indicator for a good rave and my bad physique.

As most people now tune in on the ready-made Christmas playlists, I can’t really face it yet. There are still a couple of days left until Christmas hits with maximal power, and I try to enjoy every moment left before it’s time to travel back home to my family and loop Michael Bublé’s velvet soft version of ”It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”.

So, today I filled my ”Super Soft” playlist with a super soft package: the brand new EP release from Huxley. Inkwell is my favorite, and I match it with a cozy bed and fluffy duvet. Dive in below.

I hate to do this to ya’ll on a Monday morning, listening to this track might make you want to go back to sleep, but this track is just too damn good. Scouting the internet for some new music, I noticed Tiesto remixed Ellie Goulding’s most recent record “Burn,” and being the unconventional type, I looked into other remixes of “Burn” that are out there. I fell on Maths Time Joy’s official remix of the record, peeped his SoundCloud, and I discovered this beauty, “Let Go” by Maths Time Joy remixed by Manila Killa . This is a very chill, laid back tune, one that you can vibe with, so just let it flow… It’s a must listen and a must download! Have yourself a great day!

Chill, House | Stefan Biniak – The Read All About It Bootleg

Posted by on July 27, 2013

I might be 5 months late to the party with Stefan Biniak and his take on Emeli Sande’s “Read All About It” but better late than never. Some of ya’ll might say, we already know this track, but this is for those who don’t know it. If you like cool music, you need to hear this record! It’s soulful, sexy, and perfect for these Summer days. And if you don’t trust me, trust Tiesto, he dropped a Stefan Biniak production 2 weeks ago on his Club Life podcast. It’s about time we get Stefan up on FNT. Happy Saturday! This a must listen and a must download!

Compilation, Electro-House, Featured, Progressive House | FNT’s Top 25 Big Room & Electro Tracks of 2012

Posted by on January 9, 2013

2012 was a year of explosive growth for dance music worldwide. We have seen increasing influence from the United States in dance culture, with the “bigger is better” ethos evident in everything from sound and visual production to the massive convergence of electronic music with pop music (a charge led by top-40 radio stars like Rihanna, Chris Brown, Usher, and even Taylor Swift, who made a brief but notable foray into dubstep this year). In other words, dance music has literally and figuratively blown up. Of course, with the “mainstream-ization” of dance music comes the inevitable backlash from traditionalists who’d prefer it to remain as it was in the 80s and 90s — confined to small clubs and warehouses with little attention from the general public. This rift is notably present in the trance community, where purists who prefer the higher BPMs of the 90s and early 2000s often look down upon newer listeners who have quickly latched on to what Above & Beyond famously described as “trance 2.0.”

While there are valid arguments to be made for both sides of this growing dance music debate, at the end of the day we think you should listen to what you like, and that producers should be free to evolve artistically without fear of being branded sellouts. Of course, it is important to acknowledge and respect the long (and occasionally troubled) road that electronic music has taken to get to where it is today, just as it is undeniable that 2013 has very exciting things in store for the genre — regardless of whether you’ve been a fan for twenty years or twenty minutes.

In keeping with this theme, we bring you this list in addition to our own personal lists — a list which we think sums up the year in dance music, from the clubs to the festivals to what you played on your car speakers. We all have our own tastes, but we still must pay our respects to the EDM anthems that dominated the year. So without further adieu, a few words on how this list was decided. First and foremost, this is our list, not the definitive list from the dance music gods, so no matter how hard we try to be objective we’re sure there will be some debate. Secondly, we are talking about the biggest and best tracks of the year — so tracks that were absolutely dynamite but which failed to garner support and playtime from other DJs will not make the cut. Third, remember the genres we’re covering. No hard feelings to Sasha’s remixes of “Flutes” and “Benediction” — both crushed 2012 — but this isn’t the time or the place. We also must note that we are American, so our list will mainly represent the tracks we heard at US festivals and clubs (even though some of us spent substantial time in Europe). Finally, we must give a quick nod to all of the amazing songs that were released just before 2012 but which still had an enormous impact on the year — like Nicky Romero’s “Toulouse“, Knife Party’s “Internet Friends”, Bingo Players’ “Rattle”, Swedish House Mafia & Knife Party’s “Antidote” and the ever-enduring “Epic”. At the end of 2013, we’ll give the same acknowledgment to tracks released in December 2012, like “Easy“, “I Could Be The One“, “Like Home“, “Clash” and possibly “Rift“.

Whew. Now that we’re done with that, let’s get on to The Top 25 Big Room & Electro Tracks of 2012.
