MYNC, owner and CEO of Cr2 Records, is our lucky number 56 guest mixer for Axis. In 2012, his track “Stadium” was hotter than hot, and moving forward in 2013 he’s already revamped the track into the vocal version “Searching” and sponsored one of the big Miami anthems from this year in “Miami Back Again.” When he has a moment to breathe, he directs the weekly Cr2 Live & Direct Radio Show and next year will celebrate 10 years with his label. Please welcome MYNC to Axis and enjoy the mix!
MYNC and Cr2 Records grabbed Miami Music Week 2013 by the horns with an exclusive compilation featuring Nari & Milani and R3hab as well as one of the biggest pool parties of the week. Performing alongside Dyro, Kryder, Michael Calfan (including a performance at Arkadia nightclub), MYNC and his rowdy band of Cr2 Records inductees left their mark on South Beach in a wake of blistering beats and bass.

It’s been a promising year for American breakthrough outfit Disco Fries. Found holding the fort alongside Tommie Sunshine for Vicious Recordings earlier this year, the New York-based duo finds themselves in the hands of MYNC’s Cr2 Records imprint with a purebred peak time set-piece to add to their ever-expanding arsenal. The grinding festival formula is there and with tough yet exuberant stamina, Disco Fries look to be warming up considerably well for the foreseeable future.

Israel’s Maor Levi and New York’s Pierce Fulton unite for Cr2 Records to relish in the positivity now circling both their names with their fresh collaborative offering, “Wannabe.” Where Fulton has been found almost exclusively dropping eclectic solo-offerings, his first formal collaboration since 2010 shows two young trailblazers emerging at the forefront of their craft. Donning both a melodically refined original mix and a peak time orientated club mix to the equation, both versions breathe unique and uplifting vitality into the peak time skyline that is sure to fare well on the summer festival circuit. Where some have suggested that too many chefs spoils the broth, Levi and Fulton have other ideas, with this well-oiled single reigning as the burden of proof to their respective promising maneuvers.Posted by
With only four days until Ultra Music Festival and the beginning of Miami Music Week, big collaborations are popping off left and right. Last week saw Tiësto, Quintino, and Alvaro debut their UMF Anthem “United” while today R3hab, Nari & Milani, and MYNC’s collaborative effort has been released. Building on the rampant anticipation for MMW, the aptly titled “#MIAMIBACKAGAIN” is a charged, hollow-sounding dutch house production. The knocking high-pitched beat has that wild and frenetic energy only found in Miami in the latter weeks of March, and with just a few days to go, the track could not be more timely.

As Miami Music Week quickly approaches a veritable tidal wave of compilations and big name releases have flooded the dance music scene. One such compilation, Cr2 Live and Direct’s “Miami 2013″ adds rocket fuel to the Miami fire with three exclusive mixes from MYNC, R3hab and Nari & Milani. Each mix is a straight-shot of big room adrenaline, mainlining the biggest tracks in progressive and electro straight into your ear canals. If the recent barrage of festival-friendly releases hasn’t got your blood pumping then these three mixes will undoubtedly do the trick.
Let the Miami Music Week countdowns begin.
Cr2 Records Live & Direct Radio Show 100th episode delivers a 2-hour long, 29-track history lesson celebrating the label’s lengthy history. The perfect warm-up to your 2013 Miami trip, MYNC provides a snapshot of the big tracks of years goneby – moving through the past with classic Cr2 hits from Fedde Le Grand, Chuckie, David Guetta and Eric Prydz. The mix overflows with nostalgia before moving onto tracks from Miami 2012, Summer 2012 and more. Closing out with the “Future Bound” section of the mix sees MYNC featuring budding artists like Kryder and Duher alongside some new releases from Robbie Rivera and Jewelz and Scott Sparks, as well as the man behind the decks, MYNC himself, on the track “Searching.”
Tracklist after the break.
Robbie Rivera is on a roll. Fresh off the Phase 2 announcement of his stellar Juicy Beach lineup, the Miami house icon has a new single out as a reminder that he’s just as good at providing the soundtrack to parties as he is at organizing them. “A Thousand Miles” is a top-notch production that comes in three flavors, including the soaring Robbie Rivera, Frank Caro & Alemany Mix and trance-inspired Maurizio Gubellini & Delayers Mix. Robbie Rivera’s groove-driven NYC Dub version is my personal favorite, pairing an infectious lead with crisp percussion and well-crafted builds and breakdowns. Miami Music Week can’t come soon enough. Head to Beatport in the meantime to catch this release out today on Cr2 Records.
After the laudable success of both “Toxic Rush” and “Flashbang,” German duo Jewelz and Scott Sparks have amassed a reputation for creative minimally-layered house drops. Along these lines, Jewelz and Scott Sparks have released their newest single “NYMSN,” or “New York Make Some Noise.” Though less deafening and sinister than “Toxic Rush” and “Flashbang,” “NYMSN” makes up for its lack of brawn with a soaring progressive house melody. On the whole, “NYMSN” maintains the same minimalistic appeal from previous releases. “NYMSN” is released today on Cr2 Records.Posted by
London deep house outfit Electronic Youth has been making waves since coming together in September 2011. Comprised of established artists Leisuregroove and Rustem Rustem, the duo found success with its breakout single “I Wish,” and is closing out 2012 with a groovy new number on Cr2 Records. “Took My Love” pairs a well-executed vocal sample with a funk-soul bass line that recalls the oeuvre of Jamie Jones and the Hot Creations crew. Fans of the latter won’t want to miss this, so head to Beatport today to snag a copy for yourself.
