Enroute to what looks to be one of their busiest summers on record, sisterly Aussie duo Nervo sees latest solo offering “Hold On” receive its first run of remixes from a mixed bag of eclectic club assets. Led with the punchy peak time resonance we have come to expect from Angger Dimas, the other side of the coin is filled considerably well by French heavyweight Fred Falke, whose warm and melodic knack for modern electronica proves an immediate highlight to the package. With Loudpvck extending the original to a tainted canvas of trap beats and high-end leads, Nervo’s universal appeal is tested with considerable force courtesy of this promising package picked from across global club land.

As Nervo’s latest single “Hold On” continues to hold its own on the airwaves, its remixes are revealing themselves before their May 7th release. Fred Falke was first to transform the tune and now Angger Dimas has thrown his hat into the ring with a decidedly more aggressive effort. Leading off with an electro riff that blurs into watery chords tucked behind the twins’ breathy vocals, any sweetness from the original is abandoned with a sharp drop. Though the preview is just two minutes, it’s punchy n0-holds-barred break leaves Dimas’ “electroboss” label spot on.Posted by
After teaming up with such heavyweights as Laidback Luke, Tiësto, and Steve Aoki, Jakarta’s Angger Dimas has once again struck out on his own, releasing his debut EP on Dim Mak. The three track Don’t Look Back in Angger shows the young producer’s depth as it ventures from electro to moombahton and back, all while maintaining a unique bounce.
After the success of “She Got It,” Dimas turned again to Vandalism for a collab on “Good Stuff,” a ramped up moombah tune with an infectious lyric. The EP then ventures to “Never Been,” a track with a cascading electronica sound and a disco bass before turning to an instrumental intro with heavy electro undertones on “Gotta Be.” With a full-length album due in August, Dimas’ first EP gives just a taste of what’s in store.Posted by
Following up last fall’s huge “Phat Brahms” collaboration comes a remix package with a list of names even longer. Dim Mak has released a nine-track remix EP of the Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas vs. Dimitiri Vegas & Like Mike tune that includes reworks from everyone from Bro Safari & UFO to Tom Swoon. Though each remix keeps the Brahm’s Hungarian Dance No. 5 riff, Coone’s rework makes it hardstyle, Botnek lays the builds thick and Clinton VanSciver gives it a heavy dose of bass. Wolfpack, ColdBlank and 3BallMTY also throw their hats in the ring, so if you enjoyed the original you have plenty of options in choosing your favorite remix.
2012 has been a huge year for Steve Aoki. After his debut album, Wonderland, he quickly followed up with Wonderland: Remixed, and is back before the year ends with It’s the End of the World as We Know It EP. The three track EP is a nice reminder that Aoki is still in the production game, and can not only crowd raft, cake people, and spray champagne, but also produce music.
The EP is definitely something that you can rage to – but we beg of you Steve, change the show for 2013, blow us away. You can listen to It’s the End of the World as We Know It EP , hear our thoughts after the break, and purchase it from Beatport via Dim Mak Records.
Yolanda Be Cool returns with ‘Before Midnight,’ featuring remixes from Laidback Luke, Angger Dimas and Sharam Jey
Australian disco duo, Yolanda Be Cool were responsible for the most infectious dance music hit of 2010 – their remix of D Cup’s “No Speak Americano,” singlehandedly spawning countless YouTube videos, and infecting sweet 16s and tacky weddings across the globe. Their latest original “Before Midnight” is a sound departure from the nonsensical track that put them on the map. The club-friendly original and accompanying video features Arama Mara’s gorgeous vocals with an infectious 4 to the floor drum signature and simple, yet tasteful, chord play.
Check out the rest of the remixes after the break.
British house producer Richard Dinsdale is offering us a peek of his Move On EP ahead of its November 16th release date. The compilation features two Dinsdale tracks, one of which is remixed by Angger Dimas in signature style. Both of the Dinsdale works are different, yet united by his trademark club style. “Make It” offers an electro feel, full of deep bass and bleepy hiccups — perfect to get the energy going. On the other hand, “So Soul” takes it down a notch with mellow guitar riffs and a techy vibe. The track retains the deep bass, though, making it a fit for the club. Angger Dimas’ OMG remix of “Make It” will make you exclaim just that. This version doesn’t fail to dice up the original track in true Angger Dimas fashion. The twisted sound makes the original track almost unrecognizable and infuses it with an unmatched energy that will get dance floors packed. Listen to all three of theMove On offerings beyond the jump.
Fresh off his collaborations with Laidback Luke and the Dim Mak fellow posse, the Indonesian prodigy is hitting the road for his first US tour. His glitches and wobbles amid his progressive sound provide a fresh change of pace from the usual fare, and the development of his sound since we first saw him in Miami during Miami Music Week has been impressive. A predominantly West Coast trip, Angger is hitting college towns to showcase why one DA editor called him an artist to watch at this year’s at Electric Zoo.
Spanning the last half of November, the tour will support his release of “Booster” on November 20th, but his recently released bootleg should suffice in the meantime. Jump past the break for full list of tour dates.
Steve Aoki, Angger Dimas, Dimitri Vegas, and Like Mike’s “Phat Brahms” is now available on Beatport. We previewed the track last week, but the foursome’s take on Johannes Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance Number 5″ is officially out in its original mix form. If you need refresher, the guys take the original classic melody, and infuse it with electro synths, gritty basslines, and bring it to a place that Mr. Brahms’ most surely never intended. That’s what we like about dance music though — there are no boundaries in terms of what you can create, and the track can even be seen as an homage of-sorts to the 19th Century composer. Hey, the album art is pretty entertaining too.
Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas team up with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike for “Phat Brahms,” an unassuming track with an instantly recognizable hook that samples Johannes Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance Number 5.” Steve Aoki dropped this track in the middle of his Electric Zoo set, and it is also featured prominently in Dimitri and Mike’s Tomorrowland Aftermovie. Between the classical sampling and the hard electro drops, this sort of reminds us of Zedd’s “Dovregubben.” When the track is finally released this Tuesday on Dim Mak, it will be yet another high-energy release from the cake-slinging maestro. Grab it on Beatport starting Tuesday.
