We last saw Vicetone’s remix of “Sparks” featured in Paris & Simo’s Axis Mix, but the Dutch duo is back with a new original. “Hope” features a segment from President Obama’s victory speech but according to the artists “this is not about politics but rather about his inspiring words and how much they can be related into our lives.” Although the words are truly inspiring, fans are clamoring to get their hands on an instrumental. The song builds with a nice chord progression and drops into a pulsating beat, you can download “Hope” from Vicetone’s Soundcloud.Posted by
In an effort to satisfy fans until the release of “Time,” Canadian duo Paris & Simo are debuting a remix for download – exclusively on Dancing Astronaut. First previewed in their Axis Mix, Paris & Simo take on Usher‘s “Numb” and transform it into blissful progressive house. We may have grown accustomed to Usher’s dance friendly vocals but with an entirely reworked bassline and added euphoric builds, this track has become something different. This is progressive house that just makes you want to jump to your feet and dance. You can listen to the track below but don’t hesitate to download it, this one is worth adding to your library.Posted by
It has been a while since Hardwell has released an original production, but he is finally back with the much anticipated follow-up to “Spaceman.” Named during a show in Houston after the space program, “Apollo” is more of an emotional than your average dance track. Hardwell claims he was going for something “fans could actually feel,” closer in theme to “Three Triangles,”– something listeners could connect to. On “Apollo,” delicate vocals lead way for a grinding, punchy bassline that balance out the track nicely.
Hardwell has a lot more originals coming, and is still working on his collaborations with Porter Robinson and Tiesto. A remix package for “Apollo” is also in the works, and Hardwell is enlisting his fans to select the talent for the remix duties. Before his show at Pacha NYC this past Saturday, Robbert hinted to us that he would personally like to see Dillon Francis work his magic on the track.
Sound off in the comments and let us know who you would like to see remix “Apollo” — Hardwell just might take your suggestion!

After Dancing Astronaut tweeted that David Guetta won the first American Music Award for EDM, deadmau5 was not the least bit surprised. In fact, he decided to take the opportunity to make his own “cheesy pop” tune.
Deadmau5 claims to be working with this melody to create a new track, but you can listen to his progress thus far below the break.
Life in Color’s resident DJ, David Solano, is offering us one of his exclusive mashups from the tour. Combining Axwell’s cut of Michael Calfan’s “Resurrection” with Eva Simon’s “I Don’t Like You” and the drop from Zedd’s “Fall into the Sky,” Solano make a party friendly remix. We can just picture hundreds of screaming fans going hard in the paint for this track. If you’re looking for a great track to pregame to, you can download this mashup below.
Although Afrojack just announced that he would be remixing Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” it seems that work on the remix has already begun. In a video from last night’s show at the Chicago Theatre, the infamous lyrics are present but the over played beat is not. Afrojack has replaced the melody with his signature Dutch bleeps and grinding basslines to create the lasting rework he was going for. We’re not sure if this will be the final version but it is a nice teaser to hold us over until the final remix is released.Posted by
