So this week we got some big names, two of the biggest names in recent years I suppose. First up we have Helix the next part of the Justice return saga. I don't like to judge a band on piecemeal material – but this sounds pretty damn promising for me.
Next, what looks like a new Skrillex track – Take it for what you will.
This week 50% of No Body sent me a rather large collection of some juicy remixes. I picked some favourites, including their forward electro remix of Calvin Harris, and a full bodied ridim in their The Damn Bell Doors mix.
When you go through it all, this week did have a bit more compression then I've maintained (or at least it felt thrashier then normal) – as I brought back some Dilemn for their breaks style electro. That being said, there was a good selection of progout out there, in those 24 hour party people prog pools.
To further my case, Albin Myers found his way back with a nice soft touch on a mainstage classic – Fade Into Darkness by Avicii. Hate or love it aside, I think the swede has a great touch.
And finally, in closing –
