    David Guetta has been a big supporter of youngster Martin Garrix since the beginning. When Guetta took the time to sit down with the UK’s Capital FM radio station to talk about the collaboration rumors that have been surfing around the internet, he was energetic and excited to open up.

    He states that he and Garrix are wrapping up two different tracks together and that one is a club-centered track, while the other is more of a radio-friendly dance tune. When questioned further about the release, Guetta had two words to say: “It’s Big”.

    While that isn’t a lot to work off of, knowing the two producers’ track records, their upcoming release will have some serious anthem potential. Will that transfer into Top 40 success and radio airplay? Only time will tell. Check out the interview here to see David Guetta discuss the collaborations as well as some other smaller details.

  • Elephante

    Elephante is one of the most hyped-up young artists in the electronic music world. The Ann Arbor born producer has his fair share of talent, having been trained as a classical pianist and singer-songwriter. As if his musical talent wasn’t enough, he also graduated from Harvard in 2011. In a move that would baffle most parents, he decided to pursue a career in music with his Harvard degree. However, the move has paid off, as Elephante established a significant fan base by churning out remix after remix of popular tracks. Elephante has remixed everything and everyone, including hit tracks like “Gold Skies,”  “Gecko,” “Rather Be,” “Ten Feet Tall” and “#SELFIE.” Two months ago, he released his first original track, “Shake The Earth.” The track proved Elephante’s worth as a producer and showed the world that he intends to make a significant impact on the industry. With his newest remix, “Sunlight“, Elephante reaffirmed this by showcasing his versatility as a producer while still staying true to his roots.

    Elephante completely shifts the tone of “Sunlight” from a bubbly summer track to a moodier song. He presents a nice contrast from the track’s title by adding a deeper and darker vibe. Expanding on the abilities he showcased in his “Gecko” remix, he introduces the track with heavy future house beats. He slowly eases the listener away from this grungier sound into a more upbeat electro melody. As he builds up the track’s intenstiy, the tension is finally released with the type of explosive electro-progressive drop that Elephante is known for. Elephante stays true to form with this remix and he even left it as a free download for his fans.

  • Henry

    Electro-house sensation Henry Fong is breaking new ground in his career. His latest solo endeavor, “Le Disco“, is not only a high-octane, incredibly catchy romp, but it’s also the very first release on his newly-launched label Banzai Recs.  The undeniably upbeat “Le Disco” may very well be the soundtrack of Henry Fong celebrating this major milestone.

    “Finally ready to show you guys a big project thats been in the works for the last year! Proud to announce that I’m starting my own record label called Banzai Recs!

    I’ve always wanted my own platform that I have full creative control over, that also really defines my sound. Sometimes I don’t want to feel pressured to make records that have to fit the mold of other labels in order to get signed. We have some great releases already lined up for this year from some talented up and coming producers, and we are going to kick it off with an original of my own!” – Henry Fong

    Listen to the song below and be sure to look out for more Banzai Recs goodness in the coming months.

  • Fehrplay

    Fehrplay – Pandora

    Norwegian born DJ and producer Fehrplay, has released “Pandora” as a followup to the single, “Rattata” which has been featured on Pete Tongs BBC Radio 1 in addition to Above & Beyond’s We Are All We Need Album Special. 24 year-old Jonas von der Fehr (Fehrplay)  was signed by progressive house heavyweight Eric Prydz to the prestigious Pryda Friends, one of Prydz’s three record labels in 2012. He has since unaffiliated himself with Pryda Friends and works with Ultra Records and mau5trap.

    Fehrplay’s latest release, “Pandora”, showcases how his sound has matured since remixes of tracks such as Eric Prydz’s “Every Day”. The track encompasses von der Fehr’s sophisticated sound layering proficiency whilst still preserving his highly coveted deep and funky beat. The darkened and distorted kick drums add depth to “Pandora”, making it an easy track to groove to. Fehrplay has come into his own element with releases “Pandora” and “Rattata”, which are set to drop on February 2nd via Zerothree Music, and it’s not challenging to understand why Eric Prydz has picked Fehrplay as his one to watch.

    Feed Me – Spilt Milk

    It’s always a good day when Feed Me unleashes a new song, but three tunes in three days? That’s the kind of week we’re dealing with, as Jon Gooch has released new music as both Spor and Feed Me in anticipation of his next EP, A Giant Warrior Descends on Tokyo, out February 2nd on his label Sotto Voce. In addition to new music, he let slip via the Sotto Voce Facebook page that there would be tour news coming “very soon”.

    “Spilt Milk” is everything your heart could desire from a Feed Me tune, straying from the ‘Psychadelic Journey’ he took last year and returning to his roots. Think Feed Me’s Big Adventure. This 4/4 tune brings in the signature stylings that Feed Me has perfected over the years; throaty bass and crisp electronic wobbles with a bit of deep house, creating another Feed Me masterpiece to add to his expansive discography.

  • nasty spor remix
    Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Feed Me will be releasing new music, and soon. It seems like every other month or so we’re writing up a story that the UK producer will be releasing new music as Feed Me or Spor. A month ago, we unveiled that new Spor material would be out February and March 1st respectively, and the first bit of new music dropped the other day with Feed Me’s “Wuzzle”. Now, we finally get a taste of whats been in the wood works with his remix of The Prodigy’s “Nasty”.

    For those who are fans of Spor this is a return to the heavy drum and bass style that enamored John Gooch early in his career. “Nasty” is naturally a heavy bass track that sounds like its from the soundtrack of an old Western movie; Spor keeps this essence and speeds it up while adding a lot of extra punch, creating a high-octane drum and bass tune. You can grab the original version of “Nasty” by pre-ordering The Prodigy’s album on iTunes or on their webstore.

    It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a new release from Eric Prydz. His last track, “Ruby”, dropped 3 months ago under his Cirez D moniker and his last Pryda release was an EP released over the summer. Many of Eric’s biggest fans know that he tends to save his masterpieces for release under his own name, and the last one of those was “Liberate” which dropped almost a year ago. Now, Eric Prydz is finally back with Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World“, his remix of CHVRCHESTether. This track was first played during Eric’s unforgettable set at Ultra Music Festival last year and has become a staples of his sets ever since.

    Eric explains that his tour manager used to include CHVRCHES’ original track in a playlist and he heard  it numerous times before deciding he had to rework it for use in his sets. The track wastes no time building a transcendent energy that includes a swanky saxophone interlude before moving into anthemic lyrics that will undoubtedly be sung by the thousands who see him at his upcoming Generate Tour and headlining slot at Ultra 2015. To add even more excitement, Eric adds that his album is essentially finished and the polishing should be complete in about 2 weeks. In a year that already includes some blockbuster album releases, it’s safe to say that the Pryda album is one of the most anticipated of them all. Unfortunately, this track won’t see release until March 29, but if you can’t contain your excitement for new Prdyz, be sure to check out the preview below.
