More than one month after previewing his rendition of Armin van Buuren’s “Pulsar,” Ummet Ozcan once again showcases his remixing pedigree with a preview of his take on Sander van Doorn’s “Neon.” Sander’s familiar chords and whistles remain largely intact, but the melodic climax present in the original is replaced by Ummet’s patented big room assault. With ‘Revolution‘ alongside Nervo and R3hab due out November 11th, his version of “Pulsar” out November 15th, and this pending remix to one of the summer’s biggest tracks, Ummet Ozcan is closing out 2013 in style.
Release date: TBA
Although the lead single from Afrojack’s upcoming album strayed away from the Dutch superstar’s trademark brand of “Afrojack music,” the Spree Wilson assisted single has received a few peak time makeovers. First came Tiesto and twoloud’s melodic interpretation and the newest remix comes courtesy of Blasterjaxx. The up and coming Dutch duo add a barrage of festival approved synths that turns the lighter, radio-ready single into a big room showstopper.
In episode ten of Trashed Radio, our favorite curly-haired DJ from the Land Down Under, Tommy Trash, hits us with yet another hour of ear-gasmic electro remixes, mashups and original mixes. Though Episode 9 seemed like a hard one to top, Trash lives up to his Grammy-nominated talent for Best Remixed Recording with a track list that’ll have you so energized you might just skip that second cup of coffee today. Filled with big room, electro-house beats from Mat Zo, Michael Woods, and his own collab with Wolfgang Gartner, Trashed #10 is is more than a good morning mix, it’s a great one.

Last year, Dim Mak front man Steve Aoki joined forces with Indonesian wiz kid Angger Dimas to bring us an electrifying single that sent some pretty intense shivers down our spines. On my end, I’m fairly convinced that the two have managed to condense an actual lightning bolt into .mp3 form, but, unfortunately, the hard evidence still remains to be seen.
Although Aoki teased us towards the end of last year with a preview of this killer track, we’re excited to say that the full song is now officially available for purchase via Beatport. Featuring razor sharp synths that intertwine perfectly with My Name is Kay’s scintillating vocals, “Singularity” is an explosive electro house release that erupts even more viciously than Mt. Vesuvius laying the smackdown on Pompeii. A consistent headbanger from start to finish, this high energy release is 128 BPM of glory and may just take your breath away if you’re not careful.
Before I go ahead and even begin this review, I’m going to be up front and admit that I may be the slightest bit biased on this one. Full disclosure: I love everything that Heroes x Villains produces, and this new remix of Borgore and Carnage’s “Incredible” is certainly no exception. The Dirty South duo has once again taken a traditionally clear-cut electro house single and, how shall we say, given it the business–effectively transforming the ear-shattering original into a truly nasty trap remake.
Rebecca & Fiona are back–this time wielding a soulful dance hit that will carry listeners away like a roaring rip tide. The first single to be released from their second album (scheduled for debut later this year), “Taken Over” is an incredibly solid effort from the Swedish duo and undoubtedly promises to put them on other DJs’ watchlists for the remainder of 2013. Featuring strokes of genius from fellow countryman Style of Eye, this powerful mix from the double platinum artists exudes a literal smorgasbord of electrifying sounds that ranges from explosive synths to thundering lasers. This is an undeniably big release for Rebecca & Fiona and one that is sure to catapult the blonde bombshells further into stardom than ever before. Check out the official video and purchase below.
The Disco Fries return with another hard hitting production, this time remixing fast rising British pop singer – Neon Hitch. In many ways the pop remix is what Nick & Danny do best – take your run of the mill Top 40 track and turn it into a massive electro tune with buzzing bass lines and thumping kicks. While not out yet, the boys offered up a full length preview for your listening pleasure.
Release Date: November 13
Since setting foot on the scene a year ago UK-based producer, Rogue, has gained quite the following for his energetic dubstep-electro beats. His latest release, “Adventure Time,” doesn’t stray from his signature sound and is sure to please even the occasional electro fan. The producer named the track “Adventure Time” because, when he listens to it, he “can imagine going on an epic adventure.” We’ll have to agree with that, given the track’s boppy start, melodic break and heavy bass line. The seamless transition between lighthearted synths and thumping beats makes this piece of work an easy integration into your everyday playlist. Take a listen for yourself and, if you like what you hear, head on over to Beatport to purchase the tune.
Dzeko & Torres have been quick on releases lately and are gearing up for their next hit, “Hey.” The new track was played during Steve Aoki’s essential mix and will also be released on his label, Dim Mak. The heavy electro bassline propels the track forward with long rises and falls to keep the crowd going. No news on a release date but it is clear that Dzeko & Torres are prepping themselves for a big year.

Few tracks sum up the electro house explosion of the late 2000′s better than the Boys Noize remix of Justice’s “Phantom Pt.II”.
