Although Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have graced the top of Beatport five times this year, the Belgian duo doesn’t seem to be resting on their laurels. With an impending release alongside DVBBS and Borgeous slated to hit Beatport on November 18th, the two Belgians team up with Italian duo Boostedkids for the haunting “G.I.P.S.Y.” Originally heard in Tomorrowland’s after movie, “G.I.P.S.Y.” utilizes a flute driven breakdown and a dark, pounding climax which results in one of the Belgian duo’s most unique productions.
With the first-ever TommorowWorld touching down on American soil in four short days, its official anthem has finally hit Beatport to set the pre-fest frenzy to fever pitch. Created by the undisputed kings of this year’s Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld’s opening day headliners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, “Ocarina” has been a long time in the making. A collaboration with Wolfpack, the song was first played out nearly two years ago and rocketed to fame when it was featured in the official Tomorrowland aftermovie. Now positioned to bring the same energy to Chattahoochee Hills, the Smash The House release is giving your laptop a visuals-free sneak peek of what the tune will sound like from the live stream.
It was the final hours of Tomorrowland in Belgium and, presumably, attendees flocked the the Main Stage to wrap up the weekend as they would do at most festivals. But Tomorrowland wasn’t most festivals; the real party was taking place at Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Chuckie’s imprint-clashing blowout — an over-the-top finale that featured special guests, champagne showers, and crowd surfacing to accompany the last mashups of the weekend. Similarly, America’s version of the Boom fairytale won’t be like most festivals either. TomorrowWorld will too have Belgium’s hometown heroes and the Dirty Dutch madman setting up shop on day three. With top-tier talent scheduled to take the decks from start to finish, and a celebratory finale that will replicate one of Tomorrowland’s greatest moments; there’s much to desire from the Smash The House vs Dirty Dutch stage later this month in Chattahoochee Hills.
The Netherlands’ Jordy Dazz is following up on “Bitsize” with a slightly larger tune. Named as the official anthem of Holland’s 7th Sunday festival, his latest release “Jumpfold” earned its title with an electro house sound that demands an arena audience. A thoughtful melody tucked between dizzying builds and wide drops with a break that gives even the hardest rager pause, “Jumpfold” has already gained support from the Afrojacks, Bingo Players and Chuckies of Dutch house. Ready to conquer this side of the pond as well, the track is available now on Dmitri Vegas & Like Mike’sSmash The House records.
Dutch maestro and Axis mixer Jordy Dazz is back with a ferocious debut offering for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House imprint.

Jordy’s grinding yet well-groomed hallmarks are all in place, adding yet another reason to believe that the ex-record store clerk has consistently mastered the high-end of modern dance music to date. Grab “Jumpfold” on May 20 on Smash The House. (more…)
Smash The House is taking it back this week as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike rework Wolfpack‘s take on Coco Star’s 1996 vocal house track, “I Need A Miracle.” Fragma’s bootleg “Toca’s Miracle” from 2000 or Inpetto’s remix from 2008 might be more recognizable than the original to some, but all versions of the original carry the same tune. In true Smash The House form, this 2013 rework from the Belgian duo shocks the classic right into the world of big room Vegas-ready club anthems. Check out the track below and pick up your copy on Beatport today.

Continue keeping tabs on the rookie producer and find “Character” on Beatport via Smash The House.
