When I was on the main stage at UMF and Laidback opened his set with this track I seriously lost it! With his recent collaboration with Tommy Trash for ‘Big Fucking House,’ Angger Dimas is back in action with a funky hard electro neck breaker. I love that squeaky type of sound that represents this Indonesia beast so well. Keep your eyes out for this one to be released

Tim Mason has taken Alex Metric & Steve Angello’s vocal remix of ‘Open Your Eyes‘ to the next level. With his highlight anticipated bomb ‘The Moment‘ set to be released in on April 6th, Tim is already making a name for himself. Be ready for this one to drop on Positiva Records early May.
Gregori Klosman, ‘The Cat,’ is back in action with another electrifying club banger ‘Let The Love In.’ It features the lovely vocals of Paula Ajala King who is one of France’s freshest new inde talents. With his neck breaker ‘Bounce‘ on its way with partner in crime Tristan Garner, be sure to expect nothing but the best from the Frenchmen in 2011.
Deadmau5 really regained my respect as a fan during his set at Ultra Music Festival. Even though i was very disappointed that he didn’t close with ‘Strobe,’ this track was a great way to end the second day of festivities. Stay posted for more on UMF.
Axwell is finally back with a new club banger on his very own Axtone. He kick started the year with two huge remixes of David Tort’s ‘One Look‘ and Hard Rock Sofa’s ‘Blow Up.’ He has proven himself to be one of the best if not the best house producer in the past years. Be ready for this masterpiece to drop on April 4th!
Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa have become favorites in the past month. These Russians have been in beast mode when it comes to producing music, with what seems to be a hot new track every week. They have teamed up in the past to bring us monsters like ‘Thank You,’ ‘Rhea,’ and ‘Together.’ Be sure to see more from them next week.
Hardwell just doesn’t stop! Right after giving us a taste of his next banger ‘Encoded,’ he is gives us a smashing remix of Garath Emery ‘Stars.’ Get ready for Hardwell at the Best Buy Theatre April 2nd!!
