Off the back of his recent collaboration with American peer Pierce Fulton, Maor Levi‘s “Lift Me” drops in a bid to extend the attention now circling his heavy-footed output. As tough and full-bodied as it is unquestionably poised towards Levi’s distinct studio merits, the label’s reputation for main room sensibility remains well preserved in his hands. As a surefire sign that cutting edge talent is truly coming from every corner of the earth, “Lift Me” looks to be another assertation of Levi’s unpretentious reign over the craft of finely tuned electro offerings. Look for the full release on May 21st on Tristan Garner’s Xtralife.
Since its inception, Pierce Fulton’s Get Weird podcast has been host to some impressively eclectic tracklistings. Now in its 11th month, Pierce establishes a heavier aesthetic than usual on this mix; opening up with Mord Fustang’s “Taito” before jumping into Baskerville’s remix of “Para,” Kryder’s “Viper,” and Wolfgang Gartner’s “Anaconda.” John Dish’s latest “Karmma” makes a stand-out appearance midway through before John Dahlback’s rendition of “Insomnia” by Lazy Rich takes center stage. Signing off with DallasK’s latest “Vice,” Pierce hands the decks over to “Wanna Be” co-collaborator Maor Levi, who caps the 90-minute mix off with a minimix of his own originals and remixes. Maor Levi also makes his NYC debut this weekend at Santos Party House, grab your tickets here.
Full tracklist after the break.
Pierce Fulton and Maor Levi join forces for their first collaboration on Cr2 Records, “Wanna Be.” The track is a rousing progressive production that features both artists’ unique flavors in one neatly packaged offering. Pierce’s touch is evident during the stuttering vocal cues that frame the track’s onset while Maor lends his punchy progressive trance aesthetic to the breakdown as the track’s namesake chirps and bends with infectious ease. “Wanna Be” and its club mix will be available on April 12th via Cr2 Records.Posted by
Though Walden’s debut appearance at Ultra Music Festival may be over, the Aussie has more in store for Miami Music Week. Now out on Big Beat is a remix package for “Intropial,” the progressive house tune that showcased the young producer’s progress earlier this year. Along with TV Noise and Ghost, Pierce Fulton signs on to give the track the remix treatment, making the vibe a little less sugary and little more sultry. Relying on an easy kick drum and grooving tonal melody, Fulton successfully keep the high pitched vocals while bringing the track down to earth.

As one of Dancing Astronaut‘s 2013 Artists to Watch, the young Aussie, Walden, has stayed true to his course in the new year with the release of “Intropial” back in January. Serving up his 2013 release to the remix circuit, Walden enlists TV Noise, Pierce Fulton, and Ghost for rework duties.
Scheduled for a March 18th release – dead center of Miami Music Week – the “Intropial” remix package fires on all electronic cylinders. TV Noise delivers a rousing progressive electro rendition of “Intropial” with stuttering and high-pitched synth stabs. Pierce Fulton adds tribal drum sections while accentuating the vocals with a pulsing bass line and Ghost turns the mix inside out with a heavy dubstep approach – complete with gut-wrenching drops, thunderous sub bass and more wobbles than you can handle.
This week’s SMM features some delightful downtempo courtesy of Pierce Fulton and Troumaca, as well as an absorbing original from Goldroom. Per usual, SMM highlights the deeper, minimal side of house with a track from French Express’s Jonas Rathsman. Rounding out this week’s dose is the recently released seven minute adventure from Flight Facilities.
If you missed any of last week’s more remedial productions, make sure to check out Deadmau5′s remastering of “Arcadia,” Digitaria’s new Hot Creations release Shine EP, and the Miguel Campbell and Maceo Plex remixes of Butch’s “Highbeams.” For five tracks to make your morning a bit more imaginative, click past the break.
Always one to go big or go home, Steve Aoki is back this week with another extra large remix package. Wonderland’s “Come With Me (Deadmeat),” featuring Polina, was given the remix treatment this time around, with six new spins on the vocally-pleasing electro house tune. With remixes that ranged from dubstep to progressive house from Deorro, Doorly, Jidax, Lazy Rich, Pierce Fulton and ArkAngel, it was Pierce Fulton’s dub remix that took the cake. Keeping just the song’s namesake lyric while stripping away nearly everything else, Fulton utilized an easy rolling beat, an expansive bassline and an unexpected ‘ding!’ to give the track a completely new vibe. Listen below and head over to Beatport to check out the other remixes that made the cut.

Pierce Fulton has been cooking up his beat salad on Get Weird for ten months now and to celebrate, he has bestowed an hour-long mix full of personal edits, both new and old, for his adoring fans. We’ve had our eye on Pierce for quite some time now, but there is no doubt his knack for remixing and ear for diverse electronic genres will carry him far. Check out Episode 10 below and click past the break for the full tracklisting.
Last Saturday at Santos Party House, the Electric Beach party brand brought together two of dance music’s most buzzed about stars. Pierce Fulton and Audien, who barely look old enough to step foot in a nightclub, were bound to provide a stellar soundtrack for their adoring fans. On my way to Santos, whilst perusing through my Twitter feed, I noticed Pierce mentioned this would be his first ever back-to-back set. Both of these artists have genre-bending styles and don’t particularly subscribe to labels in the traditional sense, so in that regard I was anxious to see what the night would hold. Would Audien play euphoric trance or gritty electro? Would Pierce bust out some deep house? Maybe even something experimental? (more…)Posted by
This New Year’s Eve we traveled to Brooklyn, New York for an adventure in Dadaland — Dada Life’s own man made compound and playground without rules. The entrance was visually remniscent of a Disney movie, as we bore witness to a maze of lights before reaching the venue itself. The 64,000 square foot warehouse had been transformed by promotional team, Area Event, to host 24 hours of New Years festivities for dance music enthusiasts to enjoy with every single one of their senses. Transforming the previously unoccupied venue into a menagerie of over the top production elements, unparalleled quality and a stellar talent lineup the masterminds being Area Event and the Dada Life troop turned this 2013 celebration in Brooklyn into something for the record books. This was truly an assault on all of the senses, in every sense of the word.
