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

Syn Cole – April

February 22, 2013

Do you remember Avicii before the vocals? We do – Bromance was a hell of a stonking tune that is sadly lost in the obscurity of his past. But whatever you think of Avicii’s current offerings, he’s brought house music the the forefront of everybody’s minds. And with his new Le7els label, he’s looking to… View Article

Shockolady feat. Timofey – Hello

February 21, 2013

What happens when you throw producers Dimitri Tikovoi (Velvet Underground, Placebo, Goldfrapp, The Saturdays), Area Star Production (aka Andre Rudenko & Timofey Reznikov (Akon, Katy Perry, Fergie, Pitbull)), and a British songstress in together to create a song? Well, apparently, this. “Hello” is a pop song…but like so many in recent years, it’s heavily influenced by dance… View Article

Nicole Moudaber – Roar EP

January 29, 2013

Ever since I hear Moudaber’s utterly sublime remix of Carl Cox’s Chemistry, I’ve always recognised her to be one of the most important techno acts to emerge in recent years, and definitely one to keep a close eye on. Her close workings with the legend that is Coxy, most notably in her residency at Space… View Article

RUSKO KAPOW FINAL 300

Rusko – Kapow

November 10, 2012

Ahh, Rusko. In a world of dubstep that seems to have been diluted with kids running around headless screaming along to Skrillex, it’s nice to have a release pop up in our inbox’s from an old master. Hopefully Rusko won’t mind us calling him old, we’re sure he will understand! Sorry mate. Ok, so Rusko… View Article

Layo & Bushwacka! – Can’t Hurt You – Remixes

November 10, 2012

The fourth single from ‘Rising and Falling’ gets the remix treatment. Argentinian Guti injects South American samba vibes as well as his early jazz influences also seeping through. Russ Yallop prefers a more big beat trippy style yet still retaining the smooth and silky vocal samples. Then comes Just Be, a Matt Bushwacka alias, who… View Article

Deadmau5 Gerard Way – Professional Griefers

August 30, 2012

Exorbitant, outrageous, and claimed by some to be the most expensive EDM video ever made. Deadmau5 was always going to go the commercial route and the classic pop star collaboration allows you to double or even triple your existing fan base. It’s exploitation that nobody realises is going on. The Mau5 couldn’t be happy just… View Article
