Well Tritonians, it’s here. The “Bullet That Saved Me” remix collection has been released. The full remix package includes an elephantine remix from Ken Loi, a heavy rave remix from Sebjak, a thunderous progressive remix from Ilan Bluestone, and Tritonal’s own highly anticipated Festival Mix of the track. Sebjak takes the track in a darker direction, giving the original some seriously fun bounce. Likewise, Ken Loi activates his chainsaws and infuses a classic dose of punchy electro. Available today, Tritonal’s “Bullet That Saved Me” remix collection has something for everyone, and is one not to be missed by Tritonians and Earthlings alike.
Premiered by Steve Angello on his March Essential Mix, Sebjak and Marcus Schossow’s collaborative effort has finally hit the release circuit. “Liceu” boasts a powerful energy lead by horns and beat-driven percussion, made infectious by the bedding of alarm-like synths that play beneath anthemic tones. Crafted for outdoor partying, the collaboration offers the summer season a taste of an Ibiza aura. Available today from Size Records, “Liceu” resembles the classic “Valodja,” recreating one of the imprint’s most unique tracks.
Tritonians and other inhabitants of Earth rejoice, because the “Bullet That Saved Me” remixes are upon thee. To be released via Beatport on April 29th, the remix package will contain four fresh takes on Tritonal’s lead single from their Metamorphic I EP. In addition to their own “Festival Mix,” Tritonal sought out Sebjak, Ken Loi, and Ilan Bluestone to deliver their interpretations of the track. The result? A formidable remix package of immense proportions.
Gregori Klosman is no stranger to hits and he seems to have another one on his hands. His upcoming remix of Sebjak’s “Follow Me” is powerful and employs the kind of drop that mainstream dance music fans are currently favoring. In a word, it’s massive. The heavy electro track features uplifting vocals and whooping synths capable of destroying any dance floor. “Follow Me” is set for release on December 3rd.
24 year old Swedish producer, Sebjak, is about to release his upcoming track “Follow Me” on Positiva Records. Luckily for you, he has given us it ahead of time so we can exclusively preview it for our readers. “Follow Me” is a brilliant progressive anthem with a massive hook and an emotive chord progression. With productions lined up for both Size Records and Mixmash Records, it seems like we’re only going to be seeing more of this young Swede. “Follow Me” is available for purchase June 11th, exclusively on Beatport.

The original mix of “Trilogy” combined the best from Dutch sensation Laidback Luke and the tag team that brought us “Better Days” (Norman Doray and Arno Cost). The previews of the remix package have surfaced courtesy of Mixmash Records, included are renditions from Swanky Tunes, Sebjak, Sam O Neall & C6, and GTA. We’ll get into why we are excited about them below, however, you will have to wait for the release on March 8th to get all the details.
Sebjak remixes Style Of Eye and Magnus The Magnus’ track “Antidote,” which came out last year. It has a deeper and darker sound than the original, but it still keeps a high level of funkiness. The track is set to release on Horehaus Records (funny name), although no exact date has been given. If you like Sebjak’s sound check out his remix of “Signification” that came out last week. If you love the blend between tech and progressive peruse through Sebjak’s SoundCloud in order to get your aural filling. Dancing Astronaut will bring you the full version shortly.

Sebjak has been known for his pulsing and powerful progressive basslines. He reminds us a lot of Hard Rock Sofa because you know everything will incorporate the sweeping sounds we have come to love and appreciate from deeper tracks. A few of Sebjak’s previous beauties have been “Analog Stockholm” and his remix of Cicada’s “Fast Cars.” This time around he uses a tech oriented bassline that meshes perfectly with the robotic vocals that give this tune a sinister yet bold feel. Sebjak welcomes you to the ‘dark side’ – we hear excessive partying takes place there on numerous occasions.
Sebjak made a recent appearance in our coverage of the DJ Competition in Malmö. He’s back this month with a November mix featuring a selection of tracks from Sweden’s summer icon, Veronica Maggio, to some deeper cuts from Third Party, and Deniz Koyu. Be sure to listen for his own production, “Analog Stockholm”.
