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.
They create big things independently, but when they come together, Inpetto and Morgan Page deliver arm-raising dance floor sounds that won’t let you sit still. Such is the case with “Sinobia.” The track builds up with a steady bassline, adds synths as it reaches its chaotic apex, and the drop is that much more satisfying when the slew of rhythms come together. I personally prefer to hear a track as part of a mix or live set, where I feel it reaches its true potential. If you agree, you can hear “Sinobia” incorporated into Inpetto’s November podcast and in Morgan Page’s latest ‘In The Air‘ podcast.
Listen to “Sinobia” after the break, and purchase it now on Beatport via CR2 Records. (more…)
We’ve graced you with quite a bit of Inpetto’s fine sound lately, and today, we bring you their latest effort: “Sinobia” with EDM heavyweight Morgan Page. The big-room-ready track brings the bang in a nearly chaotic fashion. But have trust in the trio. Just as “Sinobia” appears to be getting out of control, it gets reeled back in with epic synths that get your body moving with the rhythm. It seems like it’s been a while since we heard some fresh tunes from Morgan Page, so this piece is more than welcome in our playlist. The track will be released on CR2 Records and is available for purchase on November 12th on Beatport. Keep an eye out!
Cr2 Records has had a busy 2012 with releases like Gregori Klosman & Chuckie’s “The Numb3r5” and Nicky Romero’s “Se7en.” Gina Star makes her debut release on the highly acclaimed imprint with the release of “Bliss,” a track that fits the perfect mold of big-room uplifting house. It has already seen support from the likes of Nicky Romero and Fedde le Grand, and will be sure to fit into likeminded progressive house sets throughout the remainder of the festival season.
What do Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Arno Cost, Norman Doray, and Chuckie have in common?
They’ve all worked with Mark Brown, founder and A&R chief of Cr2 Records. An accomplished veteran of the EDM scene, Brown has worn many hats during his 20 years in the industry. In 2000, he launched EMI’s dance music imprint, Credence, where he signed a certain Eric Prydz. His current label, Cr2, boasts a roster that includes heavyweights Umek, Carl Cox, Dirty South, and Fedde le Grand. He’s also cracked the DJ Mag Top 100 as part of MYNC.
When it comes to dance music, Mark Brown knows what he’s talking about. And now he’s looking for new talent.
On January 25 at 9PM UK time, Brown will host a live A&R session via Ustream, during which he will lend his expertise to aspiring young producers. He’ll tell you what it takes to get signed to a label, as well as offering technical advice to artists looking to develop their style. If you’re interested in Brown’s input, head over to the MYNC Facebook page. Submit your track through the Soundcloud Dropbox before January 25 to qualify for consideration. If your track is chosen, Brown will dissect it during the live show. It’s a fantastic opportunity to have your track analyzed by some very qualified ears.
Hot on the heels of Fedde Le Grand’s ADE recap, Cr2 Records is out with a video of their own. Set to a special edit of “What Happens in Amsterdam,” the clip has bits and pieces of artists like Nicky Romero, Gregor Salto, Tim Mason, and MYNC. To compliment the video, there’s also an ADE special edition of the Cr2 Radio Show that packs tons of guest DJ appearances and some of the biggest tracks of the moment. Oh, and the video also has a cameo by Paris Hilton… that’s hot?
Want a name to keep an eye out for in the near future? Look no further than Pierce Fulton an up and coming DJ from Vermont (near the New York area). His latest EP includes three offerings – “Pardon My French”, “Lay Right Here”, and “For Me”. When listening to all three you will notice the wide variety of skills Pierce possesses. “Pardon My French” is the ‘hardest’ track of the package, think: Swanky Tunes or Hard Rock Sofa style. “Lay Right Here” is a sensitive progressive tune that blends great vocals with a spiritual bassline. The best way to describe “For Me” is pure – the rolling bassline incorporates an array of sweeping tunes that is most noticeable in a tech based tune, Funkagenda would be proud of this one.
