After teasing us for close to a year, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman and Steve Angello release the official preview of their highly-anticipated “Payback” collaboration. The track received one of its first plays last year at EDC Las Vegas via Steve Angello and has been building extensive hype since. Gorgeous lead melodies that break into power progressive house surely make it a contender for Track of the Year. Release date is set for April 22nd on Steve Angello’s SIZE imprint.
Audien has become one of my favorite producers in the recent years via his unique progressive trance-like sounds that can lift you to a whole new level. Straying away from his usual style in “Elysium,” Audien returns to his trademark self in a remix of Bastille’s “Pomepeii.” No word on a release date so listen to the preview below to hold you over!
The final piece of Tritonal’s ‘Metamorphic II’ is here as the duo announces ‘Now Or Never – The Remixes Pt. 2’. Following the release of Pt. 1, which features massive remixes from US star Pierce Fulton as well as Tritonal’s own Club Mix, Dutch producers Estiva and Juventa have now combined their abilities to create another quality re-imagining of the single.
This latest remix has all the hallmarks of a big room anthem. Snare led build-ups drive the vocals and then break into tidal waves of synths that come full of force when the track breaks, each time accentuated by a top line as infectious as the original’s own melody. Ever the innovators, Estiva and Juventa have redesigned the makeup of the second verse by adding in a pop-style beat as well as elements of funk into the bass line. The track delivers all the raw emotion that courses through Tritonal’s first cut and projects it through euphoric tones and techniques, making this a real party powerhouse.
Premiered by Pete Tong last week, Tiesto’s next single “Red Lights” is another direction for the 44 year old veteran. Sure, the light guitar strings and male vocals are a bit mainstream, but it’s catchy and makes for a smooth club jam. Early responders to the track already have their panties in a bunch as they complain how much Tiesto has “changed.” Tiesto’s been in this business long enough to know what he’s doing. Right now, change is the most respected attribute to have in this EDM bubble. Enjoy the leak below; no word on the actual release.
After years of producing music under the Dirty Vici and Vile Kings aliases, Kurt Kesedar is ready to launch his first single under his real name. “Arrived” is a unique blend of pop rock and EDM drawing upon swift guitar and synth work. The original features vocals by Pete Levine who actually provided vocals to Vile Kings’ hard-cutting electro hit “Tear The Walls Down.” “Arrived” hits shelves on Tuesday November 19th via Kurt’s homemade SUPERSAW label. Remix package to follow on the 26th.
Gearing up for what it believed to be a world tour, Sweden sensation Alessandro Linblad, “Alesso” to most, previews his highly anticipated collaboration with Calvin Harris. Receiving its first play in his Ushuaia Ibiza set earlier this month, “Under Control” was recently played in full during his Electric Zoo set on Saturday. The track features the talented vocals of English singer/songwriter Theo Hutchcraft (now called Hurts) which take the original to a whole new level. Expect a release off Refune or Calvin’s Fly Eye label in the months to come; until then, enjoy the RIP below:
UPDATE: Radio edit to release October 11th via iTunes. Enjoy the finished product below:
I’d be shocked to find anyone that hasn’t heard of Dropwizzby now. Voted as Sri Lanka’s #1 DJ, Kavindu Indatissa is by far the most productive producer I’ve come across. The guy literally cranks out a new bootleg/original/edit almost every day. His latest creation is an original by the title of “Fissure”, which is an electro monster. The preview he posted today is the Breaking Bad edit which samples clips from the hit TV series. No word on its release, so stay tuned!
Contrary to the title, there’s nothing subtle about “Sneak Attack.” Damien Anthony unleashes a barrage of sawtooth baselines and blazing snares along with a clever lead to assault the ears. With a huge melodic festival style breakdown, paired with clever melodies and dramatic effects, “Sneak Attack” sounds simply humongous. When all of these elements collide, it delivers a punch sure to do damage on dance floors across the globe.
New York City based production/DJ duo, The Disco Fries, present “Sneak Attack” as the second release on their fresh new imprint, Liftoff Recordings. The melodically driven label will serve as a home for releases from standout up and coming artists as well as the Fries themselves. Get ready to LIFTOFF this Monday for its release day.
Fresh off their stellar remake of Martin Garrix’s “Animals,” which drew support from Hardwell and other verteran, Chicago duo Milk N Cookies preview their next original production titled “Mastodon.” Premiered in their North Coast Music Festival recap video, the original stems off a powerful lead that drops into some massive, flaring synth work. Yesterday, the twins shared a live preview of the vocals, courtesy of Josh Reynolds. No release date yet; I’m hoping a label picks this one up. I know I would.
After bringing you his awesome bootleg on Avicii’s “You Make Me” last week (which Hardwell aired as Demo of the Week in HOA133), we visit Landis’ take on “Escape” by 3LAU, Paris & Simo. In his remix, which is entered in the official remix contest, Ryan keeps the gorgeous vocals untouched and adds a heavy big-room, synth driven feel to the original, creating a unique new melody.
