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.
Sitting on a gold mine of unreleased music, Swedish duo Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman finally got a chance to preview some of their progressive house magic. This came in the form of a guestmix on Steve Angello’s debut residency on BBC Radio 1. The guestmix opens with their “Rebel” collaboration with AN21 which earned an official preview this past week. The duo also premiered “Zonk” and two ID’s. The long-awaited “Payback” closed the 30 minute guestmix. Stream the mix below and check back for some release dates!

EDM veteran Steve Angello finally announces a release date for this long-awaited banger, ‘SLVR,’ in collaboration with Russian producers Matisse & Sadko. This track originally debuted on his essential mix all the way back in March, and was embraced by fans and listeners worldwide. Now, it just made its way to Pete Tong’s world-famous radio show. This summer masterpiece will launch on Size Records on August 12, just in time for all the end-of-summer music festivals. Be sure to get your #Banger hashtags ready by then.
Note: as it turns out, this was also used in a mashup with Alesso’s ‘Pressure’ as heard in his Rutgers set hope this mashup comes to light.
Yesterday, Steve Angello released his first project post-Swedish House Mafia break up. Partnered with MiO Energy, Steve’s “I/O” collaboration with Wayne & Woods was fully unlocked (small segments of the track were unlocked leading up to the release) and is now available for free download. Next up for Steve is the launching of his new “X” label on May 6th.
Determined to keep things fresh and exciting, at the end of this month Angello will be launching new label X, providing another outlet for some of the myriad styles of music that inspire him. The label will start off with a new two track EP from revered dance music veteran Trent Cantrelle entitled “Nice & Close”.
“X, it’s a new era and it’s the ten years of SIZE. X has been something I’ve had in my head for a very long time. Creativity it gives freedom, fuel and new life” – Steve Angello
Who better to kick things off than New Orleans-born, LA-based DJ/producer Trent Cantrelle who, in a career that stretches back to the early 90s, has proven his credentials time and time again. With a slew of international club hits, tastemaker support and high profile remixes, he remains very much on the top of his game. He now steps up to X with the “Nice & Close” EP, due out on May 6th.
Built around a hypnotic, rolling groove, the titular track journeys deep into the night with its collage of vocal samples and warped fx breaking down into rave-inflected chords and soaring vocals before emerging again with a renewed energy. On second track “Understand” percussive layers shift around the central syncopated rhythm over a pulsing bassline to create further dance floor alchemy.
1/3 of the recently retired Swedish House Mafia and labelhead of SIZE Records, Mr. Steve Angello makes a return to BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix a week after Ultra/WMC festivities. Steve’s last appearance on the show was back in 2005, during the pre-SHM days, with Sebastian Ingrosso.
