For Steve Angello’s Size Records imprint, the excitement was never set to stop past their landmark 100th release. More than two years since his debut appearance for the imprint, Spanish house master David Tort unites with native peer David Gausa for a long overdue return to the label. Last found behind the wheel of 2011’s “Jack It Up,” this collaborative offering hits home on the edgier house tendencies that both European assets have claimed throughout their respective careers. Sharp on the leads and ringing with a nostalgic nod to the genre’s less complacent days, “Dizzy” brings honest floor fuel back to the equation, offering a welcome alternative option to the peak time skyline for the final quarter of 2013.

From early Tim Berg collaboration “Tweet It” to 2012’s “Celcius,” French big room pundit Norman Doray has always been a welcome face at Size Records. This month, Doray is back with “Troublemaker” to prove that his love of peak time club fuel and filter-house escapades has never been better balanced. As featured in Steve Angello’s Essential Mix, the long serving Parisian artist digresses from that of his funkier edge of LE7ELS predecessor “Filtre” with a strong affirmation of his powerful ear for the big room. Those bodied ‘Size’ synths and searing electro leads are in full effect, pairing with Doray’s own affinity for on-point beats to score a third fatal strike for the label. His output for Angello’s army may still be sparing, but tracks like “Troublemaker” are sure to keep the Frenchman on solid ground with an imprint only growing stronger and more relevant with age.

We often speak of the state of EDM in Las Vegas, but it is not as often that we are able to hear the state of the Vegas from some of its biggest proponents. Showing just how integral dance music is to corporate interests, Forbes has released a series of short interviews with Steve Angello, Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, and Angel Management Group (of Hakkasan)’s CEO, Neil Moffitt, and several others. They talk about everything from “how it used to be,” to why they love the way Vegas is now, to its future and plans for expansion outside of Nevada.
Back in March, we had celebrated the tenth anniversary of Size Records, which coincidentally was a time when the label had 99 releases under its belt and was preparing for their monumental 100th. Skipping over the celebratory track with it presumably still in works, Size has since released a handful of records from its talented team. Today, Steve Angello has finally released the official 100th release of his Size imprint, presenting it as an original production with co-collaborators Mattise & Sadko.
The record is dubbed “SLVR” and, for those who have seen Angello live over the course of the past six month, this his will strike with a strong sense of familiarity and nostalgia. Boasting Steve’s signature anthemic production value along the build of growing chords and spurts of anticipating synth teases, Matisse & Sadko’s contribution comes subtly with the melodic touch. This match made and heaven has been a main stage weapon for Steve this festival season, and it’s release marks one special moment for Size but, even greater, will allow the newest dance concoctions from Size to make way sooner than later.

Size In The Park is just over a month away from its sequel affair taking over The Big Apple once more as Steve Angello and family are set to re-conquer Central Park. Last year’s event was one to remember, as Third Party, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and AN21 & Max Vangeli — all of whom are set to return — supported the Size Records front man for the perfect close to New York City’s summer party season. By the time Steve took the decks, torrential rain poured over his crowd, providing more as production value than a hinderance to dancing. Within his mix came “Hit It,” while it was in its earliest stages of circulation, and Promise Land’s take on “Don’t You Worry Child,” before it could even be identified as such. Relive Size In The Park 2012 as you gear up for its return with Angello’s live set — tracklist below the break.
The Five Boroughs have been buzzing since Steve Angello announced the Central Park edition of the famed Size Matters movement would return for its sophomore affair.

Set for Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th, Central Park’s summerstage will be once again headlined by Angello, and his supporting cast will include AN21 & Max Vangeli, Third Party, and Arno Cost on the first day and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Tim Mason, and Trent Cantrelle on the latter.Posted by
