Its not the type of genre you’d generally associate a euphoric sound too, but here, WildStylez has successfully taken upon an uplifting track which is set to turn any frown upside down. The peaceful melody takes listeners on a journey from the beginning before unleashing into that signature hard hitting, WildStylez sound. ‘Timeless’ is now available as part of the Dutchman’s three track Timeless E.P which is available at Itunes.
With the growing trend of artists adding their own taste to a vast range of Indie and Pop flavoured songs, we now have, coming our way a massive remix by Paris & Simo on Fenech Soler’s Electronic-Pop infused hit, “All I Know”. With an impressive melody, uplifting build up and quick alternating bass line , the Canadian duo have successfully taken the sensual vocal of the original track and transformed it into a big-room banger.
Purchase from ITunes now.
The DC EDM young gun, Royal, is back at it again. This time he hits us with his new EP, TWRK. The release ranges from hardcore Trap to Glitch Hop. “TWRK” is more than just another EP, it is a must play. Each track brings something unique to the table. If his earlier releases didn’t do it already,” TWRK“ solidifies Royal as an artist to watch out for in 2013. Expect big things in the coming months from Royal. The EP is available as a free download on the Crackbeatz Bandcamp.
Dutch duo in Thom Jongkind & Idir Makhlaf who go by the stage name of Blasterjaxx have set themselves a high benchmark as they begin the year with a banging big room remix. Blasterjaxx have taken Tom Staar’s “Kingdom” and transformed it into a massive Dirty Dutch banger that is set to rock any dance-floor around the world. Once word spreads of this track, it is destine to spread like wild fire. Blasterjaxx have increased the melody and tempo of the track as well as adding in their signature hard hitting sound combining it with the seductive female vocal.
The Blasterjaxx remix is now available at Beatport via Mixmash Records.
With an up-tempo snare beat and haunting piano notes complemented by the breathy, ethereal vocals of Maiday “Fade” is an incredible track and a great way to get through the winter. The English producer behind the song, Jakwob, first wormed his way into my ear canals with his remixes of Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed” and “Under the Sheets”. Since then he’s continued to turn out the kind of dubstep people forgot existed after Skrillex. Creating music that you would have your mom listen to; Jakwob’s mixture of dub, D n’ B and pop music has won him acclaim and love throughout the British Isles. Unfortunately he’s not quite so well known on this side of the Atlantic. Hopefully that’ll change in 2013 so Americans can get a chance to hear him live. If you love wub, and are looking for a more relaxed track that still keeps your energy up, look no further than “Fade.”
The Canadian duo of Sultan & Ned Shepard have been on a roll in 2012. They claimed a residency spot at XS Las Vegas and put out a number of tracks such as “Somebody To Love” and “Walls”. Also putting out remixes to “Closer”, “Time” and “We Are Young. Their brand new track “Ordinary People” to kick off 2013 is a great start with that huge big room sound and the soothing vocals by Max’C take over the track to perfect it. We are excited to see what they have in store for the new year!
Following the huge success of their debut release, “Walking Alone” on Dirty South’s Phazing Records, the Australian EDM group by the name of Those Usual Suspects are ending out the year with a bang. Having teamed up with Nordean and Erik Hecht on vocals, the lot of them have produced a banging progressive house track capable of destroying any dance-floor. Beginning with a light kick, some peaceful synths and a seductive female vocal sample, the song then takes a turn with Erik Hecht coming on vocals and finally dropping to the Suspect’s signature sound.
2012 has been a very huge year for Kaskade. He headlined multiple festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella Valley Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas and also embarking on his own Freaks Of Nature tour this summer. His Album “Fire & Ice” has been nominated for a Grammy award and he has dropped hit after hit and what a great way to end the year with a new collab with the Russian Trio Swanky Tunes “No One Knows Who We Are” . This track has been getting played since the Summer when Kaskade premiered on his massive 52-city Freaks Of Nature Tour. It sounds like an unlikely mix of styles, but the soft melodic vocal breaks from Lights that Kaskade loves to use mixed with the hard hitting electro style of Swanky Tunes makes this track a monster hit. This is sure to be a track to be played throughout the EDM scene that is going to make some waves.
Kaskade & Swanky Tunes (feat. Lights) – No One Knows Who We Are (Original Club Mix):
There has been a lot of talk and discussion over the Afrojack remix of Michael Jackson’s bad and as to whether or not Afrojack should have remixed it. In my opinion I think it is a great remix on one of the all time greatest songs. Afrojack’s mild approach to this song proves to be the reason for the success of the remix. Maintaining as much as possible of the original song, Afrojack’s signature sound is still made apparent throughout the track. I can not simply sit still whilst listening to this track, it gets me doing the Chris Tucker/Jackie Chan Head dance from Rush Hour.
This remix will be available as part of the special 25th anniversary of MJ’s legendary seventh artist album “Bad” featuring re-mastered songs, unheard demos and series of remixes. Bad 25 will be available September 18 through digital stores, also including remixes from A-Trak and Diplo. Also as this post comes to you, today is the third year of Michael Jackson’s passing.
Feel free to drop a comment down below on your thoughts of the remix.
