House | Hey Champ – Comet (Justin Faust Remix)

Hey Champ - Comet (Justin Faust Remix)

Just what the doctor ordered on this seemingly long Thursday. Smooth instrumentals and calm vocals, this is the kind of House that is sweet to the ears. Jealous of all those people who made it down to Miami for UMF, but this remix from Justin makes it so much better.


Progressive House | Avicii – UMF

Posted by on March 19, 2013


After getting its world premier in November of 2011, Avicii finally releases his track that was dubbed “ID 2” or “Fire” or “Put Your Piano On” by Tiesto. It is slightly different than the version that was being played out for a while and then played once on Tiesto’s Club Life, but still has the same hallmarks of the melodic, big room sound that has made Avicii so popular. Most notably the melody in the beginning and the rolling piano that gives this track its uniqueness. It is interesting that Avicii is releasing this track as a part of the UMF 2013 album instead just as his own CD. It is either an indication that he really respects UMF and wants to give them something special, or he feels has moved past this sound and this does not really reflect where he is at the moment. Putting the snafu of his computer getting stolen behind him, Avicii has spent the past several months working on his upcoming album and by all indicators it should make the Swedish superstar even bigger.

Preview, Trance | Dash Berlin Ft. Chris Madin – Fool For Life (Dash Berlin 4AM Remix)

Posted by on February 11, 2013

Dash Berlin Ft. Chris Madin - Fool For Life (Dash Berlin 4am Remix)“#musicislife” is by far my favorite album of 2012. Since its release, the question on my mind has been, which track will Dash Berlin create a 4am remix of? I am happy that they chose “Fool For Life.” It is definitely one of my top 5 favorites from the album, but I feel it has more versatility for a remix than the other tracks do. Only having heard this preview of the remix, I have to say I enjoy Dash Berlin’s piano and synth progression much more than the original. The drop is something different than most Trance listeners are use to hearing. It has a little bit of a breakbeat vibe to it but still has that progressive flow anyone can fall in love with. This remix makes me even more excited to soak in ASOT at UMF this year. This remix is set to release on Aropa Records on February 28th.


Events | Ultra Music Festival Phase 2 Lineup Announced

Posted by on January 28, 2013

In case you missed it over the weekend, after announcing the first phase, Ultra announced the phase 2 lineup of the talent laden festival, adding 100s of names to its ridiculous bill. So imagine just about every Dj ever minus Daft Punk and add Snoop Dogg (Lion?). That is what Ultra is looking like this year with 100s of artists lined up over 7 stages over 2 weekends with Winter Music Conference packed in the middle. There is something for everybody here at Ultra. I could start listing them off, but it is pointless because everybody is there, so just check it out below to see the daily schedule for each stage and start the UMF countdown with 46 days left until Friday weekend one. Phase 3 will come shortly with Toolroom Knights and John Digweed’s Bedrock Records, so house fans be on the lookout for that.

Less than a week into 2013, here are the songs that continue to have the strongest possible association for me with the crazy year that was 2012. Note: heavy on the trance.
