Following a series of studio sessions (or hotel sessions), Dirty South and Deniz Koyu have finally released the mastered product of their highly anticipated collaboration. “Halo” is heavily influenced by Dirty South’s signature synth work — eerily similar to the pattern from his Michael Brun collaboration, “Rift.” Rather than backing Dragan’s progression with melodic juxtaposition as Brun did, Koyu throws his own chords in the mix to ensure a vibrant drop. “Halo” is the first release of 2013 for Phazing Records and sets the tone for what should be a stellar year both Dirty South and Deniz Koyu.
Back in October, Dirty South and Deniz Koyu linked up in New York City to put what was thought to be the finishing touches on their latest collaboration. The producers went their separate ways with the track unfinished, but returned to the Big Apple last weekend to master their future hit dubbed “Halo.” With Dirty South’s signature synth work and Koyu’s magic touch, “Halo” is due to send shockwaves through the dance community.
With the exact date still unknown, expect this release sooner than later.
Update: “Halo” will be released on February 4th.
Halo is back in its fourth installment, and the game’s accompanying score is a different affair this time around. Neil Davidge, the lead composer for the project, has expertly crafted 12 original tracks and has employed electronic producers to help out with remixes. Sander Van Doorn and Julian Jordan team up to take on a track titled “To The Galaxy” and turn the standard adventure theme into an absolute banger. Koan Sound, Caspa, Alvin Risk, and Andrew Bayer are some of the other artists featured on the remixed album, which will be released on October 23rd. This is not the first time we have seen video games use electronic producers Syndicate actually gave away remixes to its theme song back in February. Listen to ‘Halo 4′ remixes below.
We haven’t heard much from Fareoh since his appropriately-titled track “2012” rang in the new year, but the youngster just released an instrumental preview of his upcoming track called “Halo.” This one is in the vain of Fareoh’s previous releases, incorporating featuring melodic, big-room synths that give the track a danceable —albeit familiar — sound. There’s no word on an official release date, but stay tuned. In the meantime, be sure to check out Fareoh opening for Kaskade on this summer’s Freaks of Nature Tour.
