Although Swedish producer Tolero has been surrounded by music his entire life, he only started producing a mere six months ago. Over the course of these six months, the demand for his music has undergone a 180 degree spin as all of his friends are now eagerly asking to hear more of his projects. His biggest musical inspirations would be progressive artists Steerner and Vicetone to name a few. He aims to achieve a happy and energetic medium with his productions and hopes to make music his full time career after he finishes school. Tolero says, “There is nothing I enjoy more than making other people get emotions from my tunes.” This progressive remix will do just that.

2) BH & Myrne
Signapore-based producer Myrne teams up with UK producer Ben Hall, or BH, on this spectacular melodic dubstep production. Their combination of melodic textures and powerful lead synths result in a very full and satisfying sound. This tune can be found on Next Gen Records, which has been an excellent source of high quality music lately. Be sure to check out their other records as their eclectic taste seems to be the driving force behind their growth.

Bass aficionado Ruxell impresses the masses once again with his brilliant official dubstep remix of Chachi’s progressive record ‘Never Alone’. Meticulous vocal manipulation, delicate string sequences and an uplifting piano melody consume the breakdown, providing great contrast for the grand dubstep drop with aggressive wobbles and the incredible soaring voice of Natashcha Bessez. Ruxell, a #RisingTalent regular, once again delivers.

4) AYO ϟ ALEX
Peter Alexander Quintana, better known as AYO ALEX, is an American artist who recently graduated from Syracuse University. Having studied music since the age of nine, his initial dream was to be a drummer and front man (at the same time) in a band. However, around the age of 14, he started producing his own music and that young dream of his began to evolve. He started focusing specifically on dance music approximately three years ago when he delved into DJing. Peter listens to everything from house to jazz to R&B. Enjoy this chilled-out melodious remix of ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger.

For those who have been following our #RisingTalent series, the name Blazen may look familiar to you. He is a young trance/progressive/big room producer who is really into the styles of Andrew Rayel, Mark Sixma and W&W. He hopes to bring trance influences into the progressive and big room scene, and as a result, build a contagious sound that will compel all crowds to listen to.

6) Bill Dess
