• Lif3blood – Like The Sunshine ft. Kate Miller

    It’s rare to see a producer, like the newly surfaced Lif3blood, with only 100 followers on SoundCloud, but a sound that deserves 100,000. The UK-based talent made his debut with “Like A Sunshine” featuring the brilliant Kate Miller, which is a stellar blend of electronic music with acoustic elements that’s sure to be a summer smash.

    There’s an undeniable beauty in “Like a Sunshine”, as Lif3blood layers together a guitar-driven melody with subtle percussion arrangements and summer-ready vibes. Kate Miller’s ethereal vocals are hypnotic and captivating, taking the track to the next level, as the rookie producer works in a modern-day revival of the The Korgi’s 80s classic, “Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime”. Together, Miller and Lif3blood create a jaw-dropping product that is sure to dominate the airwaves this summer.

    Hellberg- The Girl (Asalto Remix)

    Asalto is a rapidly rising progressive house producer who is cementing his place as an artist that is here to stay. He got his biggest break back in October, when he released his collaboration ‘Sweetest Heartache‘ with Style of Eye and Michel Zitron. Asalto has laid relatively dormant since then, only releasing one remix (which was fantastic, nonetheless). He has now set out to tackle Hellberg‘s ‘The Girl,’ entering Monstercat‘s inevitably competitive remix contest.

    Asalto’s take on ‘The Girl’ begins slowly and rhythmically, gradually building in intensity before a dramatic break. He then masterfully introduces Cozi Zuehlsdorff’s gorgeous vocals, which soar over the quietly complementary production. At almost the 3 minute mark, Asalto makes you wait before hitting you with his signature explosion of energetic progressive house. While it is certainly early, the producer has immediately solidified a prime position in this remix contest. Calling it one of his “all-time favourites,” Asalto has clearly done the track justice. You can support the young producer by purchasing the tune here.

    Syn Cole – It’s You (The Rooftop Boys Remix)

    The Rooftop Boys don’t do cold. Whether its their SummerBass mantra or their studio hibernation that occurred this winter, the producer dyad only look for the hottest music and warmest parties out there. Well, thank gosh it’s summer because that means The Rooftop Boys are in their element and just before we head into June, they release their latest official remix of Syn Cole’s “It’s You” via PRMD.

    Instead of conforming to the formulaic ways of producting future house or tropical house (the two genres their style stems from), The Rooftop Boys continue to make a name for themselves with their bass-driven, aggressive house remixes that will keep the party going all through the summer. Definitely check out their latest remix below and feel free to grab it on Beatport.

    Louis Futon – Oakland Tho (Ft. Vell & DJ Mustard)

    Philadelphia’s finest, Louis Futon, has channeled his inner Mac Dre for his latest. The up-and-coming producer’s style is consistently fresh and genuine, but this is the first time we’ve really seen him explore the hip hop realm. Teaming up with Vell and DJ Mustard, the original makes sitting at a desk working feel wrong. Perfect for some underground warehouse party, the brain frying synths and hard rap verses are a match made in heaven. If Brodinski and Mr. Carmack had a child it would sound like this. Get your bay area rep on and listen to “Oakland Tho” below and grab your free download.

    Ryder – Pretty Little Gangster

    Up and coming vocalist Ryder delivers a debut song as her own artist, titled Pretty Little Gangster. This original is a departure from what we’ve heard from her in the past – previously teaming up with dance mega-stars such as Dyro and Blasterjaxx, Ryder has a substantially different message to convey as a solo artist. “Pretty Little Gangster”, at its heart, is a Hollywood pop anthem, but also maintains a raw, indie vibe to it. Ryder’s voice straddles a unique line between aggressive and soulful, giving it a unique pitch from what’s currently floating in the scene. Featuring a catchy chorus and sensual vocals, “Pretty Little Gangster’s” mass appeal is self evident. Most definitely one to look out for, we see a bright future in store for Ryder. Out today, listen below.

    Years & Years – King (Gryffin Remix)

    After 3 months and millions of plays, Gryffin delivered a new remix. Another contribution to the indie-dance scene, his remix of Years & Years’King‘ follows the same formula of success and stylistic markings that have brought the NYC producer to every blog’s starlight. With his newest addition, Gryffin continues to meet our highest expectations.

    The New York producer imbues the song with his characteristic style throughout the track, which becomes instantly recognizable as Griffyn’s work through the balance of tropical, cheery synths and modified vocals. He hits hits the strongest chords in crescendoing builds with these edited vocals; but pays his respects to the original by leaving the main lyrics relatively untouched. The song cruises along time as a composition unified by the most prominent and warmest synth, making for an entirely enjoyable 5 minutes. The remix isn’t available for purchase, but it can be streamed off of Soundcloud down below. Enjoy!

  • Anahera

    Gouryella (prod. by Ferry Corsten) – Anahera

    Gouryella was a Dutch Trance act consisting of DJ Tiesto & Ferry Corsten. You read that right, that duo was actually a thing you could pay money to see once upon a time. They had a string of hits, starting in the late 90’s. Gouryella, Walhalla, Tenshi & Ligyaya (my personal favorite, one of the greatest trance tracks of all time). This is a classic trance vibe that I had thought perished from this earth. The 1:20 piano build is something you expect from Progressive or Big Room, but this is how it’s supposed to be used. The gliding, soothing, build turns into a soaring, pulsing breakdown that brings the older of us back to that millennial Dutch Trance. This was when Tiesto was filling stadiums playing pure trance, not club life. Anahera is super important ladies & gentlemen. If this earns a spot in the Corsten’s Countdown week after week, the message will be clear. Trance fans never left, we were just waiting for the beat to come back. Who knows, maybe this will even convince Tiesto to push out some more trance once again. I heavily recommend you put this & all of the other Gouryella tracks into your face & go vote for it!

  • Aether and Light

    Varien – Aether & Light

    It’s not often that a producer has a greater vision for their music, beyond the number of plays, streams, or sales it gets, but Nick Pittsinger’s music is firmly rooted in the conceptualization of electronic music. Pittsinger, better known as Varien, has already seen major success with his productions, as he’s had tracks featured on big budget films like 300: Rise of an Empire, Furious 7, The Purge: Anarchy, and TV shows like Bones and The Walking Dead. Now, as he gears up for the release of his debut album on Monstercat, Varien has unveiled his last single before the album drop, ‘Aether & Light’.

    ‘Aether & Light’ is a track about creation. In ancient times, scientists believed that aether was the material that filled the air above the terrestrial sphere, and was the air that the gods breathed out. From the start, the prophetic string arrangements cloud the track in an ominous air – the aether – while the glitchy synths and electro-influenced melody shine through the shroud – the light. When aether and light meet, life is created, and Varien exemplifies this creation through the churning bass wobbles of the drop. Stream ‘Aether & Light’ below and snag the track on iTunes here.

  • Tom Swoon & Kerano Feat. Cimo Fränkel – Here I Stand (Radio Edit)

    Today, an international collaboration brings new nectar for the ears. New Delhi-based producer Kerano teamed up with Polish godsend Tom Swoon to make a strong Progressive House track. They’ve succeeded: both producer’s talents come to fruition in their new track, ‘Here I Stand,’ an obvious product of hard work, and a testament to the potential merits of collaboration across borders, timezones and genres. The song has duly garnered a lot of attention from big names, including W&W and Tiesto, whose periodic mixes have recently featured the song. (Check out W&W’s set here; R3hab’s guest mix on Club Life here.)

    Every element comfortably fits into the song’s composition. Cimo Fränkel’s lyrics propel forward the song with emotional fare as synth-powered harmonies collapse and build over the duration. Thankfully, the energetic production washes away any generic quality of the lyrics, and gives way to the more complex segments of lyrical progression. Recently released on Ultra records, ‘Here I Stand’ is available for download on beatport here. Stream the radio edit below to taste the fruits of their collaboration for yourself.
