Back in September, Marcus Schossow donned his Progresia alias for the first time in years for his debut on Anjunabeats alongside his sister. The sibling’s combination manufactured one of Anjunabeats’ best releases all year and now “Fire Fire Fire” is receiving two different renditions. First heard during Group Therapy Radio 050, Ilan Bluestone’s take on the single combines the producer’s penchant for progressive-trance climaxes with a soft, yet powerful breakdown. The remix package also comes with a version from 19-year-old Dutch star Juventa.
Release date: December 16th

After giving this one a listen, it’s no wonder why the Swedish and Danish trio’s collaboration became a permanent fixture in Angello’s legendary sets this year.

As their massive tour alongside the Bingo Players and MAKJ comes to a close, the Bassjackers take on Adrian Lux and Marcus Schossow’s “Wild Child.” The duo amps up the Swede’s progressions and leaves JJ’s vocals front and center, all while replacing the melodic climax with an onslaught of electro. With ”Gamer“ on Doorn Records and “Zing“ on Protocol Recordings both making their mark over the past few months, the Bassjackers have laid the groundwork for bigger and better next year.
In mid September, Marcus Schossow and Adrian Lux released their collaboration “Wild Child” on Ultra Records, riding a fine line between Lux’s smooth melodic style and Schossow’s gritty electro. Using JJ’s dreamy vocals to frame the track with an undeniable Swede-pop bounce, the pair’s first collaboration was an instant success. In the above video, Schossow tells the story behind the track, from their first introduction in NY to the inspiration behind the name and the track.
Adrian Lux’s single with Marcus Schossow “Wild Child” gets a short video accompaniment from his recent show in New York. With its clean guitar riffs and soaring vocals, the tune showcases the familiar beautiful anthemic themes of the talented Swedes. In the video, a packed house of dancing animals dominates the imagery, fitting considering the name of the song. Capturing the essence of electronic music, the clip prepares any fan for the weekend ahead.
In collaboration with Marcus Schossow featuring JJ on vocals, Adrian Lux has released his latest project entitled “Wild Child.” Riding on that smooth, melodic whim Adrian is known for in songs such as “Teenage Crime” and “Damaged,” the track wraps JJ’s dreamy vocals around guitar riffs and Swedish pop bounce. As a precursor to Adrian’s album due on Ultra Records next Spring, “Wild Child” proves the sheer amount of musicality this Swede holds. Available exclusively today on Beatport, the single will be released through other platforms on September 31st.
When two Swedes join forces, the electronic world listens, especially when both of those Swedes are already on a hot streak. Recent collaboration “Wild Child” showcases the best of an Adrian Lux riding high off the success of rock-edged “Damaged” and the sharpened chops of a Marcus Schossow celebrating a summer of hits. The forthcoming Ultra Records release kicks of with an edited strummed guitar backing the vocals of JJ before a bouncy synth melody takes over and swings things officially into progressive territory. Poised to gain serious airplay during fall touring season, the track will be released on Beatport on September 16th.
Marcuss Schossow has hit dance music’s charts hard this summer, making a splash with “Liceu,” connecting wit Sebjak once more for “Kemi,” and finally find away to again outdo himself with “Reverie” Today, his Axtone smash hit has been reborn, with remix duties handed over to Michael Calfan in the cause of adding his signature French pep. While it would be difficult to imagine the original with an even rougher edge, Calfan does justice in softening to sharp kick and unrelenting rhythm. Unlike many of his remixes, Calfan leaves his easy-listening, bouncy progression at home and allows the backbone of the original to stand strong, injecting the proper zest that landed his rendition in Axwell’s Tomorrowland set.
After making a monumental splash on Axtone, Marcuss Schossow is back and taking on fellow Swede John de Sohn’s “Under The Sun (Where We Belong).” The poppy anthem is given a progressive overhaul in the mix, where a pulsing melody gets swept up in stadium-sized builds and harmonic resolutions. The remix cements Schossow’s place in the big room, as like “Reverie” and “Kemi” before it the track takes no prisoners in its quest to conquer the dance floor. Though no release date has been announced, “Under The Sun” is guaranteed a spot in the string of hits that has made 2013 one of the biggest years yet for the producer.
