Shortly after Chris Lake released his anthemic new progressive track “Sundown,” electro-producing machine Lazy Rich has spun off a remix that gives the song a whole new life. Think the “Sundown,” fused with a drop similar to Rich’s most recent original “You Missed a Spot;” what’s not to like?
We absolutely love the original mix of “Sundown,” and Lazy Rich’s version brings this massive track to a different level. Big room chords, layered bass sounds and a beautiful vocal sample make for a drop that hits hard, and stays true to the Lazy Rich formula. Stay tuned for the release date, but until then, you can do what we are doing and playing the soundcloud preview over and over again. Enjoy!
Michael Woods uses a heavy dose of his signature arpeggiators and synth riffs to create a progressive heater. Singer/songwriter Duvall just takes this tune to a whole new level. Michael Woods has recently come out with a remix of “Close To Me” and “How R U Feeling Right Now” he continues the onslaught with “Last Day On Earth.” Keep on the lookout for his remix to Lady GaGa’s “Black Jesus Amen Fashion,” which should be coming out shortly. Give this one a listen and sit by your computer on November 25th for its release on Diffused Records.
In the past six months, it seems like Tommy Trash’s name has been attached to almost all of the hottest tracks in the EDM world. The aussie has remixed tracks from “Carry Me Home” to “Alive” to “Shave It,” not to mention the fact that he has released a few of his own massive tracks, such as “Monkey See Monkey Do.”
And to add to the Trash-y take over of 2011, Tommy announced yet another soon-to-be released remix earlier today. This time, Tommy is attaching his name, and signature high-octane sound to Timbaland’s “Pass At Me,” turning the would-be top 40 track into an unmistakable club banger.
The release date for this one is to be announced, but you can get a little tease of the track from Tommy’s soundcloud here.
Update: It looks like the track has been pulled from SoundCloud for undisclosed reasons, but we found it on YouTube and have it embedded for you below.
Update 2: Tommy confirmed via Twitter that it was pulled for copyright reasons. Lame.
Since “Warp”, their massive collaboration with Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots have fallen off the map slightly. They are back today with a new single, “Church of Noise.” Fans of the spiderman mask donning Italians should enjoy “Church of Noise” as it features their classic rock/electro mesh sound. Dennis Lyxén, former front man of the Swedish punk band Refused, provides the adequately hardcore vocals. Out on Beatport today.

2011 has been a whirlwind year for Nervo. It has seen the duo DJ at Lollapalooza, Ultra and Tomorrowland as well as release their smash hit collaboration with Afrojack and Steve Aoki - “We’re All No One.” Well, we have some good news for all of you… 2011 is not over yet.
Nervo, recipients of our extremely prestigious “Hottest Females in the Game” award, are launching their very own monthly radio show (Nervo Nation) on Sirius XM’s BPM channel. Mim and Liv will preview new Nervo tracks, play current dancefloor favorites as well as have one on one chats with some of the biggest names in the business. The show premiers this Saturday. We look forward to it.
iza. The video series will follow Roger around the island, inside his studio, and in his residency at Space Ibiza. Terry Church, who is a former editor at DJ Mag and the founder of Beatportal does a great job directing this series. This is a nice way of getting behind the scenes with a popular artist and puts into perspective how much time, effort, and planning goes on in the day to day lives of Roger and his entourage. (more…)
Norman Doray unleashes a heavy dose of progressive fire on Tawiah’s “Breakaway.” This a situation where you have an upbeat bassline blended with some of the best synths in the business. Tawiah’s voice takes this track to whole new “Le7els,” which leads us to believe that this could be the best vocals since Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” Imagine yourself on the beach in some exotic location listening to Norman dropping this. Pretty damn good right? We look forward to seeing Norman sometime soon, he just made a splash at XS Nightclub in Vegas this past Sunday.
NOTE: Check out “Kalifornia,” Norman’s previous release – pretty good stuff.
Fadil El Ghoul isn’t exactly a name readily associated with energetic crowds and over-the-top light shows, but say the name “R3hab” nowadays and those are just the types of images that come to mind. There’s no denying that this young Dutch DJ has blast onto the EDM scene in a big way this year, and now he’s bringing his DJing talents — and even a bubbly MC — to posh nightclubs and massive festivals all over the world. I had the chance to meet up with Fadil and his partner in chainsaw crime, MC Ambush, when he made his first appearance in Philadelphia last week (another city in the Northeast completely being overtaken by the EDM craze). We talked about everything from Afrojack to Android to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre — and you can read all about it below.
Laidback Luke comes out with his anticipated edit of Avesta and B Valley’s “Dutchano.” The title stems from the blend of Dutch house and piano riffs that are highly evident throughout this tune. This type of track has you on your heels till the end because you don’t know how to react when you initially hear the piano oriented build up. At first thought you may think it is a progressive tune, however, when you hear the banging drums pounding in the background you know you are in for a bass heavy drop. The folks at Dancing Astronaut are suckers for the pianos so we automatically endorse the use of it anywhere and anytime. What do you guys think of this new style?
Paul Thomas is starting to gain some traction in the world of tech house. He has created some groovy tunes that would do well in any club setting. This time around he teams up with the Weekend Heroes to create “V.A.M.P,” the fast paced bassline reminds us a little of his previous release “The Difference.” That being said, “V.A.M.P” is considerably darker than what we usually expect from Paul, but we think it is due to the lack of lead synths during the build up. Miami Music week has a ton of tech oriented parties, we have a strong feeling that Paul will make his mark there.
