Germany’s Jewelz & Scott Sparks return to the release front with a two-track EP containing their newest singles “Hot Rod” and “White Sun.” While the duo have manifested a reputation for devastating, minimally-driven drops, their last release, “NYMSN,” was a progressive house output with a much friendlier disposition. Catering to their strengths, however, Jewelz & Scott Sparks once again evoke the biting minimal flair that previously put them in the spotlight. Though certainly less vicious than the force of “Toxic Rush,” both “Hot Rod” and “White Sun” channel a familiar, simplified charisma. While the former boasts a distinctive highway-outlaw riff, the latter takes a more melodic and layered approach. Check out both tracks past the break, released today on Flaming Records.
As dBerrie continues to lend his talents on the Generation Wild Tour alongside Deniz Koyu and Danny Avila, he also preps for a return to Fedde Le Grand‘s label Flamingo Records for a follow-up to his most recent release “Aquarius.” His latest production “Zenith” is a venture from his first original production of the new year which features the stunning vocals of Tatiana Owens. The New York-based producer replaces the bubbling house beat of “Aquarius” with a grinding bass-driven beat on “Zenith,” giving listeners a hard-edged house production. “Zenith” is due out March 25, but dBerrie decided to give fans a teaser of the powerful production today. Click below the break to listen.
Just one month after Denzal Park’sEDX remix hit Beatport the duo is already gearing up for the release of their original production “Yarl.” The track, which marks the second collaboration between Neon Records and Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo imprint is in line with what we’ve come to expect from the twosome. There are soaring synths, punching drums, and of course big bass. Get your ear drums ready as “Yarl” is slated for release on January 21st.
After showing his skills off on his first original song, “Voices,” New York DJ dBerrie is back with another new original. “Aquarius” is a simple, yet elegant progressive house track that uses a euphoric melody to carry the tune. The rise and falls in this track create an emotional landscape that will bring people to their feet with their hands in the air. After previewing two different ID tracks in his last mix for Dancing Astronaut’s Axis, it is clear that David Berrie has a lot more in the works for next year. You can grap “Aquarius” on Beatport from Flamingo Records.
Fedde Le Grand and Funkerman’s Flamingo Recordings showcase the work of new talents Jewelz and Scott Sparks on their latest release of “Toxic Rush.” Already seeing support by David Guetta, this track plays it safe with a minimal progressive approach, devoid of vocals but layered with a strong punchy beat. In a time when everyone is striving to make songs bigger and louder to fit the popular big-room sound, its refreshing to see artists tone it down and take a minimal approach.
After releasing “Sparks” a few weeks ago, Fedde Le Grand and Nicky Romero are back with the vocal edit of their electro-tinged collaboration. “Turn Off Your Mind” adds Matthew Koma’s lyrics which drastically changes the feel of the track. With “Spectrum,” “Years,” and now “Sparks” under his belt, Koma could easily be up for dance vocalist of the year. The lyrics add an emotional touch to the already powerful electro synths and catchy melody. You might remember that we first got a sneak peak of the vocal edit in our own Axis podcast mixed by Nicky himself — and now you can grab it on Beatport tag free.
After such success with his remix to “Somebody I Used to Know,” David Berrie is back again with his first original release. “Voices” is a progressive house track looking to break into an overpopulated world, and early support from big names like Fedde Le Grand means that it could be poised to do big things. The light build is complemented by a drop that is quite euphoric, followed by an uplifting piano melody that sort of reminds us of “Save the World.” This track isn’t a game changer but another solid offering from the New York-based Berrie continuing to prove himself.
Starting fresh in January 2011, Deniz Koyu dropped his solid remix to “Who Dat Girl.” Shortly after, two major singles that continuously boosted Deniz Koyu’s recognition were “Hydra,” and “Tung” being one of the most heavily supported club favorites this year by SHM, Tiesto, Calvin Harris, and Fedde Le Grand. Following his latest enormous remix to “Dangerous” ft. Johan Wedel, Deniz Koyu has released yet another staggering single — “Hertz.” Priding himself with top-notch progressive talents, the rising German star honorably released his latest on Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo Recordings. Sounding off with triumphant sounds of the trumpet “Hertz” contains commanding progressive elements to destroy dance floors, festivals, and concerts internationally.
Dutch house veteran Fedde Le Grand has been responsible for mega hits like ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ and ‘Let Me Think About It.’ Now he’s back and he’s teamed up with the “smooth-as-f*ck” vocalist Mitch Crown, and his Flamingo Records partner and co-owner Funkerman to bring us his latest single, ‘Let Me Be Real,’ a main room masterpiece with a synth beat that’ll get your mother out on the floor.
This is the video of the original mix (not quite as awesome or as long as the Funkerman mix), but it’s still so cool I thought I had to share.
