Krewella is marching forward with their album success alongside their latest single, releasing the “Live for the Night” Remix EP. Both before and after a monumental debut performance on Good Morning America as the first dance music performance on a morning show broadcast, the single has gained rapid attention from both pop and dance music culture. This compilation of remixes has an incredible assortment of variety, ranging from heavier dub-bass sounds from Xilent and a taste of hardstyle from Pegboard Nerds to Dash Berlin’s escalating, airy progressive house take on Jahan and Yasmine’s vocals. Finally, W&W and Danny Avila & Deniz Koyu each take on a hard-hitting house approach to “Live for the Night,” creating a five-track EP that transforms the tune into something new with every artist rendition.

As October and its Halloween parties come to a close, electronic music fans are already on the search for the next big holiday celebration. Insomniac’s annual New Year’s Eve White Wonderland one day event has yet to release any information about tickets, line up, or even an official date announcement. However, Southern California attendees can rest assured – the event is happening, and it’s first headliner has been unofficially leaked. Under the ‘Events’ tab on Dash Berlin’s official website, Dash Berlin World, Insomniac’s White Wonderland is already listed with a ticket link that leads back to the event’s official website which continues to advertise for the 2012-2013 celebration. Stay updated with White Wonderland’s soon to come official announcement here.
Earlier this year, Krewella’s success for their monster hit, “Alive,” was elevated to its highest potential with the steady release of remixes that satisfied every and all music palates. Their most recent success, “Live for the Night,” will follow in the footsteps of “Alive” and release a remix package that will expand the range of the already upbeat and catchy original. With the likes of W&W and Dash Berlin (who both released theirs on Soundcloud last month), Xilent, Danny Avila & Deniz Koyu, and Pegboard Nerds, their most recent hit will undergo the remix treatment and broaden the reach of this Chicago trio.
As a little preview to the full compilation, the trio debuted the Pegboard Nerds remix of their track. Most fans will already be familiar with the Nerds – they have been a consistent force in the trio’s remixes and, most recently, their “This is Not The End” off of Get Wet. This Scandinavian duo reworks the track into hardstyle, which has been a personal favorite style of Krewella as of late. It is jam-packed with speed and high energy, with glimpses of glitch-hop (in true Nerds’ style) and a few dips into trap. It’s a dub-filled treat that will satisfy both Nerd’s fans and the Krew until the full remix package is released on November fifth.Posted by
After receiving support from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Carnage and Gareth Emery, Dash Berlin & Alexander Popov’s “Steal You Away” is ready for a second round of recognition. Released on Aropa Records was a remix package of the tune with takes from Michael Brun and Giuseppe Ottaviani. Featuring a rework and radio cut from each, the package stretches the boundaries of the track, only consistently keeping Jonathan Mendelsohn’s emotive vocals and an undeniable energy. Though Ottaviani’s remixes layer in piano and a more cinematic trance sound, Brun’s takes the already uplifting tune even higher, straight out of trance and into progressive house. With the package bringing the official version count up to six, expect to hear a lot more of this tune in the coming weeks.

Krewella have quickly become the mainstage dance act to remix. After the rampant success of “Alive,” the trio’s followup single “Live For The Night” is already looking to make a similarly pandemic impact. While Pete Tong originally premiered W&W’s forthcoming remix of the single, the Dutch duo have uploaded a longer and unobstructed version to their own SoundCloud. With their typical booming kick drum, W&W craft a powerful big room remix equipped with a festive melody and a vocoder.
Dash Berlin has joined in on the fun as well, uploading a a softer, more emotive take on the pop-dance single. If “Alive” was anything to go by, you can expect plenty of more remixes to “Live For The Night” in the coming months.

The song of the spring and summer has just extended its rule into fall. After making the festival rounds and being heard on airwaves around the world, OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself” is getting another EDM spin, this time at the hands of Dash Berlin. Labeled as progressive trance but more of a back and forth between progressive house and piano-backed pop, Dash’s version is more understated than previous edits. Some trance elements do make their way through the addicting vocal, but after an emotive intro the tune is pure dance. No release details yet, but we have a hunch you’ll be hearing this played out in the very near future.Posted by
No slouch in the studio, Michael Brun returns with his rendition of Dash Berlin and Alexander Popov’s “Steal You Away.” Most recently remixing Calvin Harris’s “Thinking About You,” Brun sticks with his winning formula here, showcasing his penchant for uplifting melodies and crisp vocal hooks. Due to be featured on Dash Berlin’s upcoming #musicislife #deluxe album, Brun keeps things light and pairs Jonathan Mendelsohn’s silver-tongued refrains with equally sharp chord play.Posted by
As Dash Berlin took the decks at EDC Chicago on an unseasonably cold Memorial Day Weekend, the front man had a few things up his sleeve that warmed at least the hearts of chilled fans. One such surprise was the premiere of his new track with Alexander Popov, “Steal You Away.” Featuring the vocals of Jonathan Mendelsohn and a blend of saccharine melody and synth progressive overtones, the EDC broadcast will certainly not be the last time the tune is heard on Sirius XM. Though no release date has been announced, the collaboration will be released on Dash’s own Aropa Records.Posted by
