Get your pencils and notebooks ready to take some notes, because Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s most recent collaboration with Ummet Ozcan is giving us a lesson in partying. Kicking off their careers in the early 2000’s, the duo’s infallible efforts have paid off with acclaimed awards from Beatport, IDMA, and even the #2 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Poll in 2015, but fellow collaborator, Ummet Ozcan’s list of achievements do not pale in comparison. The Turkish producer has racked up millions of plays on YouTube and is still feeling the success from his collab with R3hab and Nervo, “Revolution,” that premiered at #1 on Beatport. The music video for “The Hum” breaks any expectations you had for the party anthem, as it peers into a massive pool party, with craziness everywhere you look. Live animals, midgets, champagne showers, pillow fights, and epic party attendees, including martial arts master, Jean Claude Van Damme, and TV star, Charlie Sheen all make a cameo in the insane music video, which you can watch below. Buy “The Hum” on Beatport here.

Electro-House | Ummet Ozcan – The Cube

Posted by on July 23, 2013

Ummet Ozcan - The CubeLiving in the Netherlands, but from Turkish descent, Ummet Ozcan has found his way to forge a path in the increasingly crowded dance music landscape, where the saying “imitation is the highest form of flattery” is taken waaay too literally. His relatively new bombastic style that has helped catapult him to larger mainstream success is what you now know to be Ummet Ozcan. With “The Code” still a prominent track this summer, he has wasted no time resting on his laurels with efforts like “Here & Now“, “Airport“, and now “The Cube“. As a follow-up stylistically to “The Box“, with some updates in his current sound, Ummet Ozcan goes 3-dimentsional with this track, as he upgrades from boxes to cubes bringing his full-bodied bass lines and thunderous synth leads to this heart-racing single.

W&W MSGThe world was still trying to come back to earth after “Lift Off“, when W&W in association with Ummet Ozcan unleashed “The Code” on the world, sparking mainstages and clubs afire. “The Code” is still heavily in circulation, but that has not stopped W&W from keeping up their nearly vertical assent to the top of the dance music world with another production destined to take them there, “Thunder“.

You could not go an hour without hearing his collab with W&W “The Code” on the various stages at Ultra across the two weekends and with his previous single “The Box”, still meandering its way into sets, it is fair to say Ummet Ozcan is here to stay. “Here & Now” represents the harder, more in your face sound we have heard in his hits lately but still remains true to his trance roots with bombastic synths, a driving bass line, distorted key play and soothing progressive trance interludes. “Here & Now” is already picking up support from the likes of Porter Robinson, W&W, Arty, Sander van Doorn and many more, so do not miss this one.

Progressive House, Trance | Armin van Buuren’s 2012 Yearmix

Posted by on January 7, 2013

For some reason I’m only just getting to the magnificent feat of editing and mixing that is Armin van Buuren’s 2012 Yearmix. Armin spent close to a month chopping and refashioning 101 of the year’s top trance tunes into one blissful, continuous two hour mix that aired on A State of Trance at the end of December. Diehards will have already heard this in its entirety, but I’m calling your attention to it now in the event that it got lost in the holiday shuffle because it’s not something to miss. Not only does it provide an excellent and diverse cross section of the year in trance, but Armin’s unparalleled technical mastery is on display to the fullest extent (I cannot stress enough how agile, seamless, and creative his transitions are — if you have any sort of familiarity with these tracks, he’ll have you in total awe in about three minutes). Check it out below and be sure to take a look at the full track list after the jump.
