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.
As the highly anticipated release of Russ Chimes’ “Turn Me Out” awaits, another remix to the package has surfaced on his Soundcloud page. Earlier this month we showcased Ejeca’s rendition — which transforms the upbeat nu-disco cut into a deep house gem. This time around, newcomer Annie Starlight offers up a proper remix that centers around an abiding downbeat with almost a calming effect to it. The package, originally set to release on Deconstruction/Columbia Records on April 29th, has been pushed back to May 6th. With a track this good, the wait is well worth it.
It feels as though we’re following a trail of bread crumbs left by two of the music world’s greatest engineers. Every few weeks more information surrounding Daft Punk‘s latest project surfaces, serving to only build upon its already colossal hype. What started back in January with an article from Le Parisien soon led to an update on Daft Punk’s website and an ad containing new Daft Punk music. Though today’s news may not be as groundbreaking, it may be the most official.
According to second largest regional newspaper in France, Le Parisien, Daft Punk have found a new home on Sony subsidiary, Columbia, leaving EMI for their upcoming fourth studio album. The information was reportedly told by Guy-Manuel to his friends at a Kavinsky album release party last week. Following in the footsteps of Depeche Mode who also left EMI for a US-based label, Daft Punk is currently in the process of finalizing its contract with Sony/Columbia, slating the upcoming album’s worldwide release for sometime this spring. Aside from scoring Disney’s Tron, this marks their first official release since 2005′s Human After All but other than their collaboration with Nile Rodgers of Chic, little else is known about the album from the two enigmatic producers.
At least we can finally put one Daft Punk rumor to rest, the duo’s next album is coming in 2013, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Over the last couple of days Jack Beats have been treating fans to previews of songs off their upcoming EP Somebody to Love. “Knock You Down,” “Storm,” and “Just A Beat” received warm receptions from enraptured fans, leaving them clamoring for more. Hopefully the duo can keep up the positive momentum with ”About to Get Fresh,” which features frat star rappers Chiddy Bang and OV. Like “Storm,” the track is an experimental departure from their signature fidget sounds. Although I’m partial to the tried-and-true Jack Beats formula, I’m not knocking them for trying something new either. I wasn’t crazy about the vocals at first, but with each additional listen they grow on me more and more. The full EP is set for release this Sunday via OWSLA and Columbia Records. Check out “About to Get Fresh” after the jump.
