Over the past 12-months, Stockholm’s Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have become two of their nations most consistent yet sparing production outfits to date. Off the heels of their remix of “People of the Night” and an impending Size Records solo debut, the duo unleash their latest major label offering “Silver Sun.” As the official anthem to Stockholm’s Lights festival, Anna Yvette join the ranks of these Scandinavian breakouts to affirm their stance as melodic house kingpins. Where past offerings have always rested on remixes with a prominent topline, this original offering projects radio-friendly club fuel with a firm anthemic twist, marking perhaps the loudest and proudest testament to their name as Sweden’s much-needed peak time reckoning.
Few have blazed the trail with such sparing yet succinct productions as Stockholm’s Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman. Off the heels of their recent remix for AN21 & Max Vangeli’s “People of the Night,” the duo return their first original release in almost a year. As the official anthem to their hometown’s own Lights Festival, “Silver Sun” sees the duo leave the remix trail for an early insight into their impending studio artillery. Accompanied by a harrowing topline from New York’s Anna Yvette, the track fuses festival fundamentals and strong melodic composure, forging a track that speaks wonders of the quality still found among the new generation of European trailblazers.

The ever-increasing number of EDM genres can make choosing a sonic direction difficult for budding artists. Not so for Computer Club, who clearly checked “all of the above” on every test he ever took.
The Los Angeles-based producer, known for his electro-indie collaborations with Le Castle Vania, shows off his stylistic versatility on his new Win or Lose EP, out this week on Exploratory Records. The upbeat title track is a collaborative effort with Must Die! that sports rollicking drum and bass rhythms alongside euphoric synths, as well as a scintillating vocal line that is rightfully given more room to breathe on Infuze’s stellar dubstep reinterpretation. Computer Club teams with New York’s Gosteffects to channel Daft Punk on “Party Tonight,” an electro-funk anthem replete with robot vocals and a manic Rule of Eight and PrototypeRaptor remix.
On perhaps the most appropriately named song of all-time, “Nerdin Out in the Trap” finds Computer Club layering throwback 808 kicks and 303 synths over stuttered vocal sample homages to the beloved Roland analog gear that produced them. Each track is available to download free from Computer Club’s Soundcloud, so there’s no excuse not to claim your copy after the break.
