Newcomer Michael Brun has turned into somewhat of a Dirty South protégé after being signed to the Aussie’s Phazing Records imprint and collaborating with him on tracks like “Rift” and “Rise.” The Haitian born Brun is at it once again with a “Your Heart” remix coming off Dirty South’s debut album Speed of Life. Lead by Joe Gil’s vocals, Michael adds delicate synth play mirrored by an uplifting kick proving his breakout status once again.
Dirty South understudy and progressive electro wunderkind, Michael Brun will be performing for the first time at Miami’s newest nightclub, Story, this Friday, March 29th. To celebrate the occasion for the young producer, Michael has put together a 6-track minimix of some of today’s biggest tracks, including his remix of Rune RK’s “Power of You and Me.” That’s not all, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away for some of our Miami readers – skip the door courtesy of Dancing Astronaut.
Hop past the break to enter.
Haitian Phazing Records protégé Michael Brun proves his remixing abilities once again by taking on Dirty South’s Speed of Life single, “Your Heart.” Coming after the recent “Halfway” preview on Dragan’s Essential Mix, his new remix takes on a soft melody and alluring synth play accompanying Joe Gil’s flush vocals. The track highlights the stunning talent displayed on Dirty South’s debut album, a true dance music paradigm.
Debuted this past Friday during Dirty South‘s Essential Mix, Michael Brun‘s “Halfway” is a supernova of playful synths that chirp and bend with enchanting effect. Following up a recent string of remixes, Michael delivers a promising original with “Halfway,” returning to his melody-driven roots and establishing his presence in progressive house. Set to be released on his debut EP via Phazing Records, the Haitian producer pairs his poppy progressions and provocative synthwork with Zashanell’s sinewy vocal line to deliver an outing worthy of big recognition.
Once a Dancing Astronaut stargazer selection, Michael Brun has finally found his way to production prominence. After making headway alongside Dirty South with tracks like “Rise“ and “Rift,” the Haitian youngster’s sound is now in high demand as he returns with his remix of Rune RK’s “Power Of You And Me.” Brun strikes back with his savory sounds and his signature melodic-progressive complexion, stamping the track as his own and making way for a massive Spinnin’ Records release.
After taking on Michael Brun’s “Rise” for his own edit, Dirty South has teamed up with the Haitian DJ for a collaborative production. Following its enchanting opening, “Rift” comes with a melodic backbone from Brun and Dirty South’s trademark synths atop a contagious drum pattern. Fitting for Dragan’s Phazing imprint, the collaborative effort is due to dominate the progressive arena while climbing the charts. Enjoy the forces of Dirty South and Michael Brun and head to Beatport for the official release of “Rift.”
The tandem of Dirty South and Michael Brun proved great chemistry and success after Dragan’s edit of “Rise,” and the guys are finally back at it with a massive collaboration. “Rift” features Dirty South’s signature synths that have become so loved and recognizable, while Brun gives the track it’s melodic backbone. Due to be a staple track in the progressive arena — like most Phazing productions — “Rift” will be released November 26th, so your much needed dose of Dirty South is on its way.
Michael Brun has released a preview for his latest remix, a gentle, melodic take on Those Usual Suspects & Nordean’s “Burn Forever.” Originally debuted by Dirty South on Phazing Radio, the song starts off with a gentle piano melody that puts Erik Hecht’s vocal front and center. The same melody progressively develops, culminating in a drop that has just the right amount of oomph without being too overpowering. No word on when the track will be released, but we’ll keep you posted.
Michael Brun has been a busy man, somehow he toggles being a student at Davidson University and completing tracks alongside Hardwell (“Dawn“) and Dirty South (“Rise“). This time around Michael Brun releases a remix of Charlie XCX’s “Nuclear Seasons,” it is the ultimate progressive sounding track (which means it is damn good), the drop reminds us a little of his previous release of “Dancing.” When you see Dirty South, make sure to keep an eye out for Michael who is now a favorite of Dragan’s crew.

Michael Brun and Special Features’ “Synergy” is officially available after a cool, trippy preview was released last week. The track has a distinctly big-room feel to it, but as we mentioned last week it also bears some resemblance to Afrojack & David Guetta’s “Lunar.” There’s a long escalating progression until it hits the drop, at which point you’re presented with banging synths that aren’t too overbearing but are still big. Brun’s last single “Rise” got a lot of airplay from some big name DJs, and we have a feeling that “Synergy” could see similar success.
