The Sound of Swedish House Mafia

In true Swedish House Mafia style this mix jumps right in there with a fist pumping, bouncy track of M83. The track ‘Midnight City’ is the sound track to Made in Chelsea and has sure to of been one of those tunes for the chic kids of 2012, with latching onto major festivals and gigs all over the world. SHM stage the Eric Prydz Remix and is a fantastic start to get those booties moving.

A classic of Kamisshake ‘Dark Beat’ Dirty Fucker on the remix comes in with vocals taking centre stage and the background slowly coming into making an eagerly anticipated appearance, then is pelted full force with the vivacious, entertaining beats.

Robbie Rivera’s ‘One Eye Shut’ comes out to play with the home boys; Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso on the remix with a true reminder of dancing and prancing in loved nightclubs some years ago. This is a true classic that won’t go away and yes, may even become better each time this it is remixed.

A much loved tune of Sander Van Dorn’s ‘Reach Out’ slowly creeps in, building up and bursting in with the bass and every so quickly exploding, showing off it’s true potentional of technicalities, completely slowing down and bursting into Tocadisco ‘Da Fuckin Noize,’ again with the multi talented Steve Angello remixing the track.

Nadia Ali, Alex Kenji & Starkillers ‘Pressure’ is a favourite from summer 2011 and has the ever so gifted Alesso on the remix, taking its time loading, after a heavy ‘Punk’ track by Ferry Corsten (Arty Rock-N-Rolla Mix). The track has immense vocals and is definitely one for the ladies to get your groove into in the clubs. Although an amazing track, it quickly burns out and fizzles out too quickly some may say.

Tim Berg (otherwise known as the storm that is Avicci) finishes off this star studded affair with the sensation of ‘Bromance.’ It’s an mind-blowing track to end with and sure will get you in the mood for wanting more from Swedish House Mafia, consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. We’re just sad to say a final farewell to them but if this mix is anything to go by, then individually their projects will be far from mundane.

Other artists showcased on the mix are Michael Woods, Robokids, Marco V, Deniz Koyu, John Dalhback and Dirty South, most of which with specially remixed tracks and has the true Swede stamp all over them. If you are a EDM enthusiast then this is perfect offering for 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
