Injecting a breath of fresh air and new flavor into his still brief tenure at Phazing Records, Michael Brun has released three of his best productions last month in the form of his Gravity EP.

Taking to DA’s weekly Axis podcast, Brun masters mixing duties for episode 77, and the hour-long outing includes some of the aforementioned smashes, exclusive edits and remixes, along with some of the hottest records across progressive house.Posted by

Adam Bayer’s Drumcode live radioshow was taken over by Nicole Moudaber last week from Bulgaria. Spinning an hour of her sex-fueled bass lines on the coast of the Black Sea, the techno goddess entranced listeners and led them down a rabbit hole of gripping percussion and hollowed-out effect work. Setting the stage for Bayer to follow, Moudaber’s Bulgarian opening set is a smooth and drum-laden drive into darkness. Primal and sensual with an industrial grit, Moudaber manages to pack emotion into a dreary techno backbone – a talent that places her at the top of her game as one of the genre’s most forward-thinking talents.
To catch Nicole Moudaber at Output in Brooklyn this weekend, hop past the break and enter to win a pair of guest list spots to hear her on New York’s finest sound system.
Although he’s been touring like a madman this summer, Avicii is back in the studio with the newest take on his monthly Levels podcast. This time recorded directly after his weekly Sunday residency set at Ushuaia Ibiza, Tim offers a peak inside what he’s been up to this summer as well as what we can expect from his upcoming album. His tracklist kicks off with a funked up Kastra remix of One Republic’s “If I Lose Myself,” moving to his favorites like a Shoe Scene Symphony remix of Kaskade’s “It’s You It’s Me” to Pang!’s Slow Things Down mix of “Wake Me Up”, along with 10 additional must have tracks of the summer.

After making tidal waves with their biggest hit to date, “Wakanda,” the duo found their stride and style, releasing “Turn It Up,” “Mammoth,” and “MORE” to massive critical acclaim. Two of drop heavy EDM’s largest supporters, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike host an hour of blistering big room beats including tracks from Danny Avila, Steve Aoki, and Marcus Schossow. Two unreleased DV/LM outputs also make an appearance with both their Tomorrowland Anthem and Major Lazer remix invading the mix ahead of their late July release dates. Don’t be fooled by the “Center of the Universe” opener, it’s soothing melodies are introduced only to provide sharp contrast to the rest of the mix’s unrelenting percussion and gritty synthwork.

Polish production talent, Tom Swoon joins us for our 63rd episode of Axis, curating an hour worth of big room electro hits. Focusing heavily on the harder side of electro house, Swoon shies away from his own edits and originals and instead shows off some lesser known outings from Darth & Vader, AK9, and Mikkas. Matching peak time, commercial house appeal with aggressive warehouse-inspired electro, Swoon’s contribution to the Axis library is not one to sleep on. With 23 tracks ranging from Zedd’s remix of “Alive” to Cash Cash’s remix of “Symphonica,” the man behind the smash hit “Not Too Late” serves up an energizing and refreshing take on 2013′s big room obsessed aesthetics.
