Axtone Volume 1Axwell and his Axtone imprint have stamped an indelible mark on the blueprint of modern dance music. Their combined output can be found within every DJ’s record bag and clubber’s music collection, and their collective influence has helped shape club culture’s current renaissance.

Axwell presents Axtone Volume One, quite obviously the label’s first compilation, is also Axwell’s first mix album since his acclaimed Sessions and Clubber’s Guide outings for Ministry of Sound. Recently signed to Sony’s Deconstruction imprint, this ever intriguing third of the all-conquering Swedish House Mafia has unarguably become one of the world’s most respected dance icons.

Bearing all the hallmarks of a label destined for classic status, Axtone’s quality threshold is notoriously high – indicative of a discography that has never sacrificed its reputation for a prolific release schedule (much like it’s creator and chief A&R). As a stable of like-minded artists it’s curiously old-fashioned, in a world of disparate producers, Axtone represents a premier league of like-minded production talent.Axwell

Since 2005, Axtone has been the birthplace for each of Axwell’s own anthems, including ‘I Found U’, ‘Watch The Sunrise’, ‘Feel The Vibe’, and more, plus a raft of individual and joint crossover hits from Ingrosso, Dirty South, TV Rock, and Bob Sinclar – not forgetting, ‘Leave The World Behind’, last summer’s dream-team collaboration between Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Laidback Luke.

Mixed with typical aplomb by the label boss, Volume One brings together all of the above label highlights, plus more recent anthems (including Prok & Fitch’s ‘Walk With Me’ and Abel Ramos & Miss Melody’s Rotterdam City Of Love’) and two exclusives (Adrian Lux’s ‘Teenage Crime’ and David Tort’s ‘Something ‘bout You’).

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
