After months of anticipation, Nari & Milani have finally released "Atom" on Size Records. Swedish House Mafia debuted this bomb in December at Madison Square Garden and since then, it has received incredible support from DJs across the globe. Sticking with SHM and their record breaking MSG show, the trio have released the intro edit to "Greyhound" that they began the night with. Its taken a few months for these massive tracks to get here, but it was well worth the wait.
Zedd dropped his latest banger "Shotgun" yesterday and while there may be some mixed reviews of it, it's clear that Zedd is going big. Shave It, Slam The Door, and now Shotgun; the young German producer continues to create the heaviest bass lines I've ever heard. Taking a page out of hardstyle on this one, he drops into the hardest hitting synth we've heard in a while. Next up is Bart B More's remix of "Space", which is one of my all around favourites of the week. A heavy banger with all the tools to get the dance floor moving, Bart B More has expanded his electro sound into something a bit more club friendly. Today I've also got a new track from an emerging producer who placed two tracks within the Top 100 of 2011, and this time Leventina teams up with Dinka for the release of "Chariots", an electro–progressive house banger ready to tear up the dance floor.
Alex Gaudino released his latest gem titled "Chinatown", Thomas Gold dropped "Sing2Me", and Adrian Lux remixed BeatauCue. Uplifting melodies are the focus of this week's progressive house serving, case and point Jerome's "Stars", and "Leto" from Archie. Make sure to check out the George Monev edit of Michael Calfan & Axwell's "Resurrection". Similarly to how Monev reversed the melody of Levels, he's done it again with another one of the progressive house anthems of the past year.
One of the most recognizable names in trance music, Paul Van Dyk, has just released his first studio album since 2007, entitled "Evolution". While I'm not the biggest trance fan, I can appreciate that a lot of the synth sounds that define progressive house originated in trance music. Arguably the biggest producer/dj to bridge the gap between trance and prog house at the moment is Arty, who makes an appearance on one of Paul's tracks called "The Ocean".
Bingo Players are back with an edit of Carl Tricks' "Mad Dash", and if that wasn't enough they've gone and added vocals to one of the best tracks of 2011, "Mode" – now titled "Don't Blame The Party (Mode)" – featuring the lovely vocals of Heather Bright. If you're looking for the heavier side of Bingo, look no further than Tony Romera's remix of "Rattle", where he introduces some Nicky Romero inspired bass lines to the infamous Rattle lead synth.
Back again for some tech house bangers, this week with some brand new Koen Groeneveld, Tocadisco, and Weekend Heroes & Sebastian Krieg. These guys are all producing machines, pumping out quality releases seemingly week after week. To get you in the mood, sit back and enjoy this guest mix from Fonzi.
