Recently formed duo Jus Jack & Oza teased their chemistry with their previous progressive offering, “Housid,” but are due to steal the limelight this time around. Without their rough-around-the-edges, acid-laden sound, the duo turn up the dial for a big room gem fitting for Tiësto‘s Musical Freedom imprint. “Love Is The Answer” comes with a vocal from Blessid Union of Souls that gives life to the echoing chord builds, and that formula is once again boosted with a remix from Tiësto himself — a production that won’t land on Club Life Volume 3: Stockholm, but still packs a similar punch. All proceeds from the purchase of “Love is the Answer” will be donated to the charity Childhood curated by Princess Madeline of Sweden.
Frequent collaborators Jus Jack and Oza have taken a break from their acid-tinged tracks for something a little sweeter. The duo took the vocal stems and piano intro from Blessid Union of Souls’ 1995 melancholy hit “I Believe” and spun it into an uplifting progressive house ballad with a sweeping melody. The track marks the duo’s debut on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom Records, and the label head himself gave the tune a mix, putting his own stadium spin on the sound. A big room collision of nineties meets nu teens, both tracks will be available May 20th on Beatport.
Baggi Begovic brings his talents to Tiësto’s Musical Freedom after unleashing his latest dance floor killer, “Owner Of A Lonely Heart,” last month via Erick Morillo’s Subliminal imprint. Flaunting his big room production abilities, Baggi presents “Compromise,” his latest solo effort that has been released on its own this week, but will be featured on Tiësto’s Club Life Volume 3: Stockholmthis summer. Fitting the compilation’s festival-oriented nature, “Compromise” comes as a teaser for “Love and Run,” Baggi’s collaboration with Tiësto produced for the forthcoming installment of Club Life.
Baggi Begovic has dipped his toes in the waters of several different subgenres of house music, releasing techier tunes on Defected Records, working with Chocolate Puma and Roger Sanchez, and remixing tracks for international popstars like Christian Aguilera. In more recent years, he’s chosen the big room route and it’s payed off for him — his newest track “Compromise” is to be featured on Tiësto’s highly anticipated Club Life Vol. 3. The preview we have is short, but it’s pretty clear this’ll be one of the happiest, carefree anthems off the album.
Firebeatz have already had a laudable 2013 with big releases on Spinnin’ and Fly Eye Records thus far. Adding to their list of top notch label releases, the duo’s newest single alongside fellow Dutchman Bobby Burns is out now on Musical Freedom. Receiving its name from the nasally pre-drop sample and various doorbell noises embedded throughout, “Ding Dong” is a vehicle of restless energy from start to finish. Beginning with a carefree, high-pitched melody and charging electro house drop, “Ding Dong” is supplemented by a brief chord-laden bridge before returning to its feverish acceleration.
Aside from his collaboration with Quintion and Alvaro for one of Ultra’s anthems and a slew of remixes, Tiësto has yet to out a standalone production in 2013. That is until now, as he’s previewed his forthcoming original record, “Take Me,” a big room gem with signature flare and vocal efforts from Kyler England. Having made way for colleagues all year, Tiësto carves a May 14th slot out of his Musical Freedom imprint to unleash “Take Me” on the summer.
In a long overdue follow-up to last year’s “Steel Eyes” for Musical Freedom, Canadian hopeful Benji is back on the radar with his debut offering on Dim Mak. A full-bodied peak time affair rife with indie vocals and strong melodic progressions, “Following Me” is not your average festival anthem, but looks to score universal brownie points across club land on the merits of radio-friendly stamina. As featured on the second installment of the label’s New Noise compilation series, the young Canadian appears back in the fast lane.
Brother’s Wouter & Sjoerd Janssen are piled in the back of a car enroute to Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. Today, the duo has unveiled their latest single “Get Loose,” a significant milestone in the footsteps of a duo whose street-credibility has been overtaken only by their festival-proofed sound of late. As a mainstay of the European hard dance circuit reborn as one of the globe’s more consistent peak time connoisseurs, their butterfly like movement from the days of “Analogue Players in a Digital World” to the gold-record racking “Cannonball” for Spinnin Records has never felt anything short of a genuine leap from two passionate club protagonists. They’ve sealed two albums, traded hard dance festivals to WMC, taken WMC by storm, even remixed Carly Ray Jespen. But as Dancing Astronaut learned in an exclusive interview, this is not a test: Showtek is here to elevate the peak time skyline like never before.
Firebeatz and Bobby Burns have teamed up to give Musical Freedom its next booming record. The Firebeatz boys are coming off the success of “Gangster” and are looking towards “Yeahhhh” while Bobby Burns’ latest “Lemonade” is nearly a week old. Together, their forces bring a combination of their personal dance tactics to make “Ding Dong” a bass-heavy, electro-laden offering fitting for the nature of Tiësto’s imprint.
Despite being released almost a year ago, Tiësto and Swanky Tunes’ ”Make Some Noise” is a tune worth revisiting. For whatever reason, the original failed to make the serious impact its producers’ credentials warrant. Luckily, Dyro has revived both Ben McInerney’s alluring vocal track and the original’s endearing melody. Lending his big room electro abilities to the anthem, Dyro supplements the catchy lyrics with a riveting, illustrious build up and a thunderous electro drop. Dyro’s remix is out today on Musical Freedom alongside a remix from Skidka.
