  • Break the House

    Borgeous & Tony Junior – Break The House (Original Mix)

    Borgeous has teamed up with Dutch producer, Tony Junior, to release a new pumping big room drop festival anthem. Borgeous, known for his smash hit ‘Tsunami’ and remix of Afrojack’s ‘Ten Feet Tall’, and Tony, best known for his hit track ‘Twerk Anthem’, have both cemented themselves as mainstays in the big room house scene.

    ‘Break The House’ utilizes a steady build up of pumping hardstyle inspired bass kicks and plucky synths to transition into a catchy synth melody and an aggressive, fist pumping drop. Borgeous and Tony successfully offered up their individual sounds and were able incorporate them into one cohesive track. Though Tony Junior is unfortunately not currently on tour, you can catch Borgeous with Adventure Club at Pier 94 in New York this Halloween. ‘Break The House’, which was previewed in September, is now available for public download on Beatport, courtesy of Spinnin’ Records.

  • Autralian export Dirty South has taken to his socials on Facebook & Soundcloud to generate excitement for the forthcoming release of his sophomore full-length album entitled “With You,” via a fresh tactic of coupling the album announcement alongside a free download release of one of the album’s tracks ‘Freefallin.’ Most of us are familiar with the Serbian export’s rhapsodic progressive and house compositions, but in an industry that sometimes appears to err on the side of the mainstream…Dragan has chosen to spotlight his immaculate production capabilities by spotlighting a chilled-out, trip-hoppy and electronica-leaning package, injected with the dreamy, and slightly nostalgic pang of Gita Lake‘s hypnotic vocals.

  • BT feat. Christian Burns – Paralyzed (Maor Levi Remix)

    Israeli producer Maor Levi’s take on BT and Christian Burns’s “Paralyzed” will have you anything but, calling your mind and body to action with its driving melody and bass.  To keep you moving, Maor Levi transforms the original by adding some heavenly piano before a massive drop into a heady, heavy bassline.  Maor rounds out the remix by giving a nod to the original’s dub elements that complement the soaring melody. True to form, Maor Levi’s big-room version is invigorating and imaginative, with layers and layers of auditory bliss while preserving the beauty of the collaboration between BT and his good friend Christian Burns.  The complete remix package for “Paralyzed” will feature remixes by Juventa, The Spacies, T-Mass and Joakim Carley.  Tritonal’s imprint Enhanced Recordings will release Maor Levi’s remix on Beatport on October 27th before a wide release on November 10th.

  • If you told us that you attended a festival this summer and didn’t hear Showtek’s ‘We Like To Party‘, we wouldn’t believe you. The smash charted in three different countries, hit the Beatport #1 spot and has almost reached the 30 million view plateau on YouTube. Now, its received the vocal treatment thanks to Tryna and has an official music video to accompany it. This brand new version may have a new title, ‘Wasting Our Lives‘, but it still goes just as hard as the original and is almost as hot as the sex scene that takes place. Unfortunately, the couple’s names are Barbie and Ken and unless you have a thing for dolls, this video is pretty safe for work and safe enough for the little girl that is controlling them. ‘Wasting Our Lives’ is going to be released this November through Polydor Records and you can pre-order your copy right here.

  • He is currently wrapping up his 11-stop ‘Trashed Tour‘ and celebrating the release of his latest single ‘Hex‘, but Tommy Trash still found time to put together a stellar mix for The Future FM‘s ‘Resident Artist of the Month’ series. In our exclusive interview with him, Tommy talks about how he likes his mixes “to have some sense of a narrative that takes the listener on a bit of a journey” and that is exactly what this one accomplishes. With tracks from the likes of Botnek, Laidback Luke and a couple of his favorite up-and-comers, Bixel Boys and Wax Motif, there is bound to be something even the pickiest of dance music fans will enjoy. Check out the mix below through The Future FM and be sure to thank Tommy Trash for providing the soundtrack to your weekend.

  • 404
    Following the unfortunate announcement that Knife Party was forced to delay the release of their forthcoming album Abandon Ship, Rob Swire has continued to build anticipation with the release of yet another snippet on his Soundcloud.

    The most recent—titled ‘404’—came without an announcement and further exemplifies that the theme of this album will not fit into one typical Knife Party mold. Rather, it will cover all the bases of the duo’s musical interests back to the Pendulum days. ‘404’ is not all that similar to what we’ve heard from the new album so far, though it does fit their frequently used electro lead-dubstep drop formula. Mixed in along the way is a digitally produced male voice generating computer terms, as the title ‘404’ would suggest. The teaser cuts off after only a few seconds of the drop, but from what we can hear, the questioned whereabouts of the dubstep in their last teaser, have been found in ‘404.’

    Check out ‘404’ below, and hang tight for the delayed release date of Abandon Ship, now expected on November 17.
