Just two months after ending ‘One Last Tour’ with Swedish House Mafia at Ultra Music Festival back in March, Axwell returns to the fray with the release of his first original production since ‘Heart Is King’ [Axtone] in April 2011 and hits with Swedish House Mafia such as ‘Don’t You Worry Child’. Entitled ‘Center Of The Universe’, this release is Axwell’s ‘Remode’ of the unreleased original mix, first debuted by the Swede at Stereosonic Festival back in 2009.
Felix Leiter - Elektriqa (Spinnin' Records) Last one of the week and again, it’s another monster track to set you up for the weekend! A resident DJ at Digital in Newcastle, England, Felix Leiter really is on fire just now. Last week he released his ‘Dancin Dancin (You’re In Love)’ track, featuring Amanda Wilson, on Black Hole Recordings and on Monday, his latest track ‘Elektriqa’ is released on Spinnin’ Records. Both tracks are completely different and show his diversity as a...
David Glass & Michael Ellis – Fly (Instereo Recordings) Really don’t know much about this one accept that it’s just came out this week on US label, Instereo Recordings, the label created by legendary US house music DJ, DJ Dan. Dan created the label in 2001 and over the years, it’s released some fantastic tracks, working with artists such as Wolfgang Gartner, Phonat, Hatiras and Robbie Rivera.
Central Avenue & Graham Sahara – Work (Seamless Traxx) The latest release from prolific production duo Central Avenue & Graham Sahara is a driving slice of house music with a rolling bassline that’s loaded with funk and the occasional blasts of a siren, which all adds to the energy of the track. The vocal tells you to ‘work until it’s time to stop’ at the track’s breakdown, and uses snippets of the lyrics pre and post breakdown. It all blends well together to create a good...
Jamie Lewis Feat. Kim Cooper – Obsession (Purple Music) Taken from his forthcoming album, ‘Purpleized’, Switzerland’s house don Jamie Lewis is back with his latest track ‘Obessesion’. On vocals this time, it’s the powerful voice of Kim Cooper who sings the story of fantasies and sweet obsessions. The track comes in two mixes, the Jamie Lewis Darkroom Mix, which is the more commercial of the two, with big beats, a full vocal, with a very high-energy disco feel to it.
Adam Stacks – Don't Know EP (Natürlich Elektronisch) First one of the week and today it’s the turn of Adam Stacks with his new track ‘Don't Know’. It’s actually called the ‘Don’t Know EP’, although it’s actually just the one track with an original mix, a dub and a Rock N Bass mix. The dub does exactly what you’d expect, stripping back the original. The Rock N Bass mix adds a different element to the track, changing its melody and adding a more grittier-based sound.
Jordan Suckley – Spooked (Liquid Recordings) Last one of the week for us and what an absolute monster trance tune to keep on the site all weekend! Released on Monday on Liquid Recordings, a division of Spinnin Records, this new one from Jordan Suckley has been huge for many of the big trance DJs over the past few months, and should continue to be so over the coming months. This is full on trance, the way it should be made, without any shitty ‘popular’ electro riffs running through it.
Summer sees the return of Favouritizm's deep-house golden boy, Tony Barbato, armed with Italian fuoco and ready to burn the house down with his brand new four-track release, 'The Tuscan EP'. 'Give Me' opens shop with a smouldering deep bass and tribal-edged groove, laced with a haunting chant and cut up vocal hooks that give way to a gigantic breakdown!
Maxime Dangles – Hold Up EP (Bedrock) Released this week, this is the new five-track EP from French DJ/producer Maxime Dangles. With great success on his previous releases, particularly his ‘Santé’ track, which appeared on label boss, John Digweed’s ‘Structures Two’ album, this new one on Bedrock is pretty special as all five of the tracks are easily playable in a club environment.
Sted E & Hybrid Heights – See U Move (Sea To Sun Recordings) Taken from their first ever artist album of the same name, this is the new track from New York City house duo Sted E & Hybrid Heights and what a track to launch the album! It’s been a while since we’ve used the words ‘hip house’, is that still cool? Is it uncool to say ‘cool’? Regardless of trends, this to us is hip house at its finest as the duo have created a fantastic jackin’ house beat with the lyrical...
