Returning to his Revealed stomping grounds, Dannic finds himself atop this week’s list of premier electronic releases. This time on remix duties, he makes way for Mako, a young producer who’s been buzzing as an independent artist all year long. Together, they’re hitting fans with a high-spirited big room effort dubbed “Beam.” Vocals grace a subtle lead in a manner not indicative of its imminent magnification — or simply put, these two manage a main stage track without spoilers.
Today is Thanksgiving. It’s a time to give thanks for good health, good friends, good family, and, of course, good music. We thought we’d take the time to pay tribute to our favorite parts of dance music culture on this day of thanks, not only for the guys who slave over turntables while we get to party, but for the dance music scene in general and its constantly expanding fanbase. This one’s for the electronic acts that put their heart and soul into it, the clubs that go all out every night of the week, and the people who live and breathe dance music. It’s the least we can do.
Once famous for his bootlegs and mashups, 22-year-old DJ 3lau has come a long way since his humble beginnings. Riding on the success of his recent album release, Dance Floor Filth 3, 3lau proves his ability as a big room house producer, dominating dance floors everywhere as his talents grow exponentially. The young DJ promises to release 5 new original tracks in early 2014, but in the meantime, he thanks his fans for their continued support with a release of “Escape Me Home.” First heard at EDC, 3lau’s mashup combines remixes of Revealed Recordings‘ “Escape” by Flatdisk, Kill FM, and Charity Strike and melds them together with “Take Me Home” by Cash Cash. It’s another great 3lau remix that won’t even cost a dime – what could be better?
While fans have grown to love the Dutch electro style that Dyro has brought in the past, the Revealed Recordings mainstay makes a much-appreciated venture to the melodic side with “You Gotta Know.” The track edges closer to progressive than we have ever seen from the festival-headlining artist, and evokes emotion through elegant vocals before handing the listener’s musical fate to Dyro himself. With the melodic approach that originally brought the electronic music craze to the forefront of our society, Radboud assists the Netherlands-native in delivering a brilliant production that serves to complement the aggressive festival style with the happier overtone which many crave. While we have come to expect high quality tracks from Dyro, this latest release showcases his diverse talent, proving he is deserving of his high-profile name.
Between recent Hysteria offering “Torpedo” and remix duties for Cash Cash, Jordy Dazz has had another fine year on the beat. In celebration of hitting 55,555 fans on Facebook, the Revealed Recordings favorite drops the entirety of his Halloween set at Bounce Music Festival New York. Known best for his high-octane studio output and equally energetic live sets, the Dutch breakout makes no exception for this Big Apple festival appearance. Matching crowds favorites and off-the-cuff bootlegs with his renowned hand for mixing, it is easy to see why Jordy’s is a name found fast ascending the global sound waves.
As an up-and-coming producer, Thomas Newson appears to be living the dream. Not only has he received incredible support from Hardwell and the rest of the Revealed Recordings posse, but the young artist’s previous release, “Flute,” was praised for its innovative integration of the flute into dance music. His latest release, “Pallaroid,” is no exception to the quality music for which Thomas has been known. Originally believed to be an unreleased Hardwell track, Newson’s electro house production gives a nod to his Dutch roots. Introducing a sharp lead that serves to sonically saw through anything in its path, the track maintains its high energy with a catchy riff. With no shortage of new talent from the Netherlands emerging, it will be interesting to see how Newson will differentiate himself from the pack throughout the continuation of his career.
Premiered by Hardwell at this year’s Tomorrowland, Sandro Silva‘s “Payback” had garnered support over the course of the past several months prior to today’s Revealed release. Known for his fat synths and heavy kicks, Silva offers fans with even more heavy-footed beats that are reminiscent of “Epic,” but embody more forceful energy in vein of 2013′s festival trend. The track’s simplistic yet highly developed structure creates the peak time feel that Sandro has championed in the past, inducing a rush of euphoria.
Paris & Simo, the 22-year-old dance music duo hailing from Montreal, have previewed their remix to Denzal Park’s upcoming big room track, “Animal Hearts.” Though both the original and remix aren’t available for download just yet, Paris & Simo’s new teaser is enough to get you hooked on the track. The young Canadians bring us a high-energy rendition of Park’s catchy progressive house track which features delightful vocals from Penelope Austin and club-worthy melodies. With support from Deadmau5, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Sander Van Doorn to name a few, Paris & Simo are quickly making waves as an impressive pair to watch out for in dance music. Stay tuned for the release of “Animal Heart” on November 25th on Neon Records.
