At a time when his nation has become pigeonhole with fuelling the flame of modern disco advocacy, Paris’s Tristan Garner has more than amply thickened the plot through his XtraLife imprint. Back to follow-up “MachineGun,” his latest solo installment looks to illuminate the peak time skyline with his rock-tinted tune. Building with subtle guitar riffs, “Molotov” rasps and resonates with the seemingly perfect formula for a festival anthem and the impactful resonance such European peers as the Prodigy once personified. Off the back of Filip Jenvens epic debut “Hey,” the XtraLife ringleader sets the tone for the summer ahead with unprecedented force, this heavy-footed highlight from outside the national comfort zone.
Release Date: July 1st
Filip Jenven joins the XtraLife crew with his latest original production “Hey,” a deviously greyscale track designed for the grittier side of dance music. The track builds amidst punchy electro flairs and a sinister bass line before being complimented by a massive string section and sawtooth arpeggios. Following in the labelhead’s footsteps, Filip Jenven establishes a sound inaugural presence on Tristan Garner’s dark electro imprint, unleashing “Hey” with unabashed fervor. “Hey” will be available on June 18th via XtraLife Records.
Hardwell‘s Revealed Recordings continues into 2013 with the release of Kid Massive & Alex Sayz’s thunderous original “Strong.” Featuring the ethereal vocals of Miella, the two producers tread delicately between big room chord progressions and adrenaline laced electronica. “Strong” builds slowly, coerced into submission by the gorgeous choral efforts of Miella. White noise hums amidst powerful kicks as the energy pushes upwards before reaching it’s peak, dropping abruptly into a cascade of stuttering electro chops and twisted synthesis.”Strong” marks another strong offering for Hardwell‘s imprint, which has seen a staggering array of genre-defining releases since its inception in 2010.

Check out remixes from Dannic and Filip Jenven after the break.
Hearing female vocals on an uplifting track usually does it for the vast majority of house listeners. Some of the more notable vocalists in the EDM world are Nadia Ali, Christina Skaar, Amanda Wilson, Eva Simons, and many more. When you think of male vocalists the quality and quantity starts thinning out rapidly. Max C has been featured in many tracks previous to “Lifting It Higher” and let me tell he is talented enough to keep up with the females. If you n-joy uplifting synths, solid vocals, and a pulsing bassline give both of these remixes a shot.
Alex Lamb’s remix is synth filled blast. The various build up’s are great…imagine this played in a festival setting. Unreal!
Micha Moor does this song justice. Scroll to the 2:30 mark. Nuff said.
