Spinnin Records has officially launched their own online Spinnin’ Sessions radio show, bringing a weekly blend of current club favorites and upcoming Spinnin’ tunes to airwaves worldwide. Aired on YouTube, SoundCloud, and soon iTunes, each episode will feature its own guest artist, and the label’s own Sander van Doorn is first at bat. After a half an hour of some of the biggest tracks du jour from Cedric Gervais, Nicky Romero and Alesso from the Spinnin’ crew, Sander took the decks, bringing the sound a little darker and deeper for party-ready listeners. Listen above, check the tracklist below, and tune in next week to see who will take the Spinnin’ decks next.
It has been twelve years since Moguai first launched his label Punx, and almost 4 years since the label has released any tracks. The reason he starting it up again now? Andre Tegeler thinks that “right now dance music is getting to the point where more and more tracks are sounding the same, so to me it is the perfect time to revisit the original thinking and go against the grain.” The first release, “PunkOMat” incorporates a wobbling bassline with a hint of electro that definitely differs from the normal four to the floor rhythm. “PunkOMat” will be released on June 24th with the relaunch of Punx Records.Posted by
One half of the driving force of the wildly popular “The Code,” Ummet Ozcan is back with another heat-packing tune. The trance producer teamed up with DJ Ghost for “Airport,” a track that wastes no time in taking the club to to 30,000 ft. With trilling builds and bossy electro wobbles, the track starts hard and ends harder, taking off into the progressive unknown. Adding to an already stacked summer release schedule, “Airport” will be available June 10th through Spinnin’ Records.Posted by
With summer in the air, the beats are getting bouncier, the vocals more optimistic, and even hard hitters Firebeatz cannot prove immune to the season. Straying from their electro roots, the pair have unleashed “Wonderful,” a peppy melodic number with lighter layers and higher vocals than they’ve used before. Not ones to completely change tack, the tune breaks its upbeat reverie with a wobbling tempo change and throws in a quick build that takes the song from soothing to grooving. A breath of progressive air, the track is due out May 27th on Spinnin’ Records.Posted by
To attain mass appeal, a track needs more than a hook, more than a catchy melody, more than a familiar name. Though the formula is imprecise, Cedric Gervias has perfected it with his latest release, “Things Can Only Get Better.” Gervais builds a sweeping progressive house melody under Howard Jones’s optimistic lyrics, culminating in an irresistible bridge and radio-ready chorus. Due out on Spinnin’ Records at a still unspecified date, the track is perfectly positioned to take over the festival world this summer.Posted by
Russian beat maestros Hard Rock Sofa deliver yet another gritty electro production with the release of “Collapsar.” Their collaboration with Dirty Shade, who also hail from Russia, has been floating around since late February, but was only officially made available for purchase today. “Collapsar” likely won’t be able to compete with the success of their most recent mega hit “Rasputin,” but it will certainly make waves. Its heavy build, pulsing bass line, and grinding synth work are highly palatable to the masses.

Since teaming up with Tiësto on the Ultra Music Festival anthem, “United,” the young Dutch tandem of Quintino and Alvaro have been hard at work in the studio. Without veteran influence, they let their refreshing sounds shine on “World In Our Hands” as Quintino’s aggressive electro supports the build and Alvaro’s frenetic bleeps bring the energy to new heights. While the beat may be rough around the edges, the vocal loops and melodic upswings make for a well-rounded offering from Spinnin Records.

After the runaway success of his collaboration, “Reason” with fellow Aussies NERVO, Hook N Sling ventures out solo for his next original release “Don’t You Know.” Hook juxtaposes two competing styles here, delivering a bouncy electro house drop that punches through the disco house flavor and charming vocal line that define the track’s introduction. Striking a balance between flighty grooves and frantic energy, Hook serves up another release in his ever-growing and impressive catalog. “Don’t You Know” is set to be released via Spinnin Records on April 26th.Posted by
