House | Henrix & Bream Ft. Zashanell – Alright (Original Mix)

Posted by on April 7, 2015


Spring is officially upon us, and for electronic dance music junkies that means only one thing – festivals.’Alright’, out on Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records, is an upbeat ride through big room drops accompanied by the sultry and yet soothing vocals of Zashanell. This is a track that projects sheer good vibes through its entirety, both lyrically and melodically. “We’re all in need of love, all in need of something, how do you fill that void?” Although much about the scene has changed since its early days, festivals and raves still serve as places free of judgment where every individual can let their freak flags fly. This track is for those kids who are still attracted to the music because it helps them feel at home in a strange world.

Progressive House | Michael Brun – Gravity EP

Michael Brun - Gravity EPFNT favorite, Michael Brun finally releases the EP he has long been saying would be coming this year. He has tweaked each track and made many different versions of each before deciding on which one would be final copy for the EP. He has done remixes for the likes of Calvin Harris & Dirty South this year, with another coming for Alicia Keys, but it was time to get back to originals.

The EP starts off with clubby, groovy dance floor stomper “Antares” and is followed by the highlight and most-anticipated track of the EP, “Halfway” featuring the angelic vocals of Zashanell, is the peak-time melodic weapon we have come to expect with him. The EP is all capped off by “Gravity”.

Michael Brun - Gravity EP

He’s been saying it was coming for months now, and for a time we all believed it was imminent. But after a while, like the boy who cried wolf, an artist can only say “soon” so many times before fans stop believing you and stop paying attention to your release date posts. At last, after a few recent remixes, we have that precious EP from Michael Brun and a solid release date on September 23rd. It includes “Halfway”, featuring vocals from Zashanell, which has already seen radio play, so expect that one to become a big single for Mr. Brun.

Preview, Progressive House | Michael Brun – ID (Preview)

Posted by on April 3, 2013

So here I am patently asleep at my desk and a new email comes into my gmail from Michael Brun with the title “New ID with”. I am awake. The above ID is a track he has been playing out with T Swifts vocal on top over the past few months to much appraise and has received many requests for release. The track shows his continued progress as one of the brightest stars in the big room house scene. He is giving very little info about the track right now and Mr. Brun was quite stubborn in keeping it that way, so enjoy the radio edit of this ID that may get named after T Swift or not. If you have not already, check out his upcoming track “Halfway”, featuring Zashanell that is going to be on his 3 track EP on Phazing Records. Also be on the lookout for his remix of “Your Heart” from Dirty South’s “Speed Of Life” album coming really soon.

Progressive House | Henrix – Miami Heaters – Volume 2: The WMC EP

Posted by on March 13, 2013


Miami native Henrix has seen the yearly worldwide dance music pilgrimage for Ultra come and go and patiently waited his turn to make his mark on the most important week in dance music. This time with 7 gigs coming up, he is kicking it off with a 3 track EP with some of his most requested tracks including the Tiesto supported “After All”. With his much anticipated single “Hit It” still sitting high in the charts and ready to rock stages at UMF, he turns back to the mode of free downloads to give out more quality tunes.

The EP sandwiches the acid fueled “Miami Bounce” with 2 massive big room tracks. “After All” makes good work of chopped vocal bits, aiding Eran Hersh’s etheral vocals over a sublime melody of soaring synths and a playful piano top line. For those of you saying this is a cheap knock off of “Million Voices”, here is a clip of it being made before “Million Voices” was even public. “Close Your Eyes” is the first of several collabs between two of our artists to watch in 2013, Henrix and Jakob Liebholm, as they tab Zashanell to lay down angelic vocals over an uplifting big room track that shows the subtlety of Jakob Liedholm’s sound and the melodic sensibilities that Henrix is capable of drawing upon.

Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | Ken Loi feat. Zashanell – All It Takes (Dean Divine Remix) [FNT Exclusive]

Posted by on July 17, 2012

Latvian producer Dean Divine won the Ken Loi “All It Takes” remix contest and now we have the download of this incredible remix for you here at FNT. Ken Loi himself is a rising American talent and to have his support is becoming more and more of an honor; thus winning this contest should be a pretty big stepping stone for Dean Divine’s young, yet promising career. He has only been producing originals and remixes for a year, but his sound is quite mature for such a small window of producing. Dean Divine adds his flavor to the already wonderful progressive track, adding new layers of complexity to the melody by chopping up the original melody, adding pitched breaks, an important, fast moving arp, and of course a pounding bass line. It is clear why Ken Loi tabbed this as his favorite remix of the 80 submissions and will be playing it out in future sets, so get the free download now from the Riga native.

Australian born, San Francisco raised Dj and bootleg master, Ken Loi has been on our radar for a long time as he has grown as a producer. He has been making tracks that have been very good, but have lacked that je ne sais pas quoi to make them great, but with “All It Takes” and his upcoming remix of “Angels” he may have turned the corner and grown into the potential he has always shown to have. Zashanell provides vocals that fit very well with the incredible hands in the air melody orchestrated by Ken Loi with a varying bass line and a piano melody driving the build. Ken Loi has been championed by Tiesto and this track has been supported by the legend himself with others like Kaskade, Bingo Players and Adrian Lux. Below is a preview of his aforementioned remix of Adrian Lux – Angels, which adds a little extra to the melody with a little extra bite.
