In anticipation for his May 4th show at New York’s recently reopened Marquee nightclub, Adrian Lux has prepared a silky smooth mix showcasing his tastes for more melodic side of house music. Opening with his own “Damaged,” Lux spends the next 20 minutes swiftly moving through a bevvy of tracks with sugar coated synthwork and catchy top lines. It’s an easily digestible, sonically satisfying breakfast guaranteed to shake off the morning blues.
Be sure to grab tickets to see Adrian at Marquee NY this Saturday, May 4th.
Coming off a successful Main Stage appearance at during weekend two of Ultra Music Festival, Adrian Lux has returned to the production side with a preview from his forthcoming album. In true Lux fashion, “Damaged” rests heavily on a vocal, but the track’s edited guitar tones and minimal drum builds make it feel more like pop-rock than progressive house. The snippet of the radio edit features emphasized melancholic lyrics, a subtle melody, and no real bassline. Without a release date yet for neither the track or the album, only time will tell if Lux will continue in the stripped down vein of “Damaged” or return with another club classic.
With a full length album and countless remixes under his belt, Adrian Lux has done well to develop his own unique style of artful and silky smooth progressive house. On his latest remix, Lux lends his melody driven progressive house sound to Frida Sundemo’s “Indigo,” elegantly infusing the original with subtle touches of trance melodies and progressive punches. The soothing vocal cuts float effortlessly over Lux’s understated percussion and synth play adding another simple, yet powerful outing to this young producer’s back catalog.

Adrian Lux takes on Australian electronic group, The Presets’ new track “Ghosts,” and turns it into pure house bliss. By extracting a section of the vocals and adding elegant progressive chord stabs, Lux gets “lost in the streets of neon.” This type of track will fit nicely into the type of set we saw Adrian spin over at Pacha over the summer, and is now available on iTunes.
As featured in Wednesday’s BOTR, Adrian Lux has brought an hour of heat with his Summer 2012 mix. The Swede, who is known for his indie-house records, recently released a remix and extended disc of his debut album, but relentlessly delivers deep into the season once again. Lux’s mix features light and uplifting tunes that are a reflection of his own relaxed productions. Selections include Ken Loi’s remix of Adrian’s “Angels,” popular hits like “Bong,” along with a few remixes from Eric Prydz. Bring Adrian Lux’s summer mix on the go for the remainder of August and jump below the break for the track list.
Ken Loi is making waves in the dance world with a chain of successful releases and remixes including “All It Takes,” “Buy generic levitra online

He’s back with another quality offering, “Angels,” which premiered on Tiesto’s Club Life 269. Loi maintains the coquettish vocals of the original but breathes new life into the track with a melodic build and swirling synths. We’re keeping this San Fransiscan producer on our radar because we expect big things from him — and so does Tiesto.
Stepping into Pacha NYC, you never really know what to expect. Sometimes you can’t breathe and other times there’s enough room to warrant staying until sunrise. Friday wasn’t the most packed we’ve ever seen the NY hotspot, but when Adrian Lux took to the decks at 1AM the club came to life. While Lux might not be the most recognizable name, you have definitely heard many of his tracks, which have received support from the likes of Axwell, Avicii, and even the videogame FIFA 2011 which features “Can’t Sleep.” The Swede seems to be gaining traction in the industry and a killer set at Pacha only seemed to solidify his skills. Keep reading for 5 tracks you need to know.
Faustix & Imanos are back with their rendition of Adrian Lux’s “Burning.” Released on Ultra Records alongside the Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl remix, Faustix & Imanos’s rendition features a stronger melody and a longer build, complete with that well-produced progressive breakdown we’ve come to expect from these New York natives. If you loved the original “Burning” but just wish it had a little more punch than you’ll love this remix.
As an added bonus, the 16th iteration of their Decked Out Radio show features a guest mix from none other than NO_ID, so be sure to check out the mix after the break. To say NO_ID‘s song selection is interesting would be an understatement.
