Two words. ‘Modus Operandi’. The Swedish DJ, Airbase, has released the official follow-up to ‘Uppercut’ and we could not be more captivated. The distinct patterns and massive melody will definitely have you in your trance trousers. With the release of over 20 records and more than 50 remixes, this is sure to be Airbase’s crowning jewel. The groovy piano dynamics and the soft-hitting beats make this track a great addition to the A State of Trance label.
After last month’s amazing remix of Capital Cities “Safe & Sound”, legend Tommie Sunshine and Live City came together again to give us the remix of Mt. Eden’s “Sierra Leone”. Tommie Sunshine is known in the industry for his chart-topping mixes and obsession with music, thus being recognized as one of the most “productive and passionate” dj’s in the scene. Immediately drawn in by the noticeable energy and hard hitting beats, it is obvious this mix will be at the top of everyone’s must-have list.

John Dahlback is a production machine that never stops generating progressive house anthems. The Swedish producer’s most recent release, ‘Nuke’, is just the sort of colossal anthem that John Dahlback has become known for. The combination of a robust bass and distorted lead sound pack energy into every crevice of the track, and with enticing melodic chords filling in what space remains, ‘Nuke’ is definitely capable of taking over any dancefloor. The Protocol Recordings released ‘Nuke’ follows up another huge club track that John Dahlback recently produced, the gritty ‘Don’t Stop.’

Steve Angello, who recently started label X, teamed up with Stuart Price aka Jacques Lu Cont aka Tracques to transform Depeche Mode’s ‘Soothe My Soul’ into the perfect combination of big beats, electro synths and deep vocals that go straight to your core. While Price is widely known for staying out of the limelight, Angello recently joined forces with MiO Energy to unveil an exclusive track, continually raising the bar for himself. This song could not be more fitting to its title…there’s only one way to Soothe My Soul, and this mix is where it is at.

Cirez D has returned! After some time laying low with this alias and almost two years without an official release from Cirez D, Eric Prydz has unleashed an entirely techno EP, called ‘Thunder Struck’. (Cirez D is Prydz’s more techno/minimal identity, under which he released hits such as ‘On Off’ and ‘Full Stop’). The release off of the label Mouseville is unlike what he produces under his ‘Eric Prydz’ moniker, and is much darker than what we hear from his other alias, ‘Pryda’. The heavy track is layered with bouncy percussion and whining sirens, and maintains a fierce energy all the way through. ‘Thunderstruck’ was featured in Prydz’s set during Ultra Music Festival, appearing as one of the unknown ID tracks. After his captivating performances as Eric Prydz at both Coachella and UMF, and his recent appointment as headliner for Sensation Canada, the veteran just continues to persevere and please crowds by the masses.
The up and coming Dutch producer Wezz Devall grabs the beautiful vocals of Alana Aldea to create the melodic track ‘On The Rise’. After big releases of ‘We Are The Future’, the sensitive ‘Brave’ feat. Susana and the electrifying ‘Kill of the Year’, Wezz brings a new unique sound with a hint of rock. In between Trance, Electro, and House, his newest track gives fans of all genres the chance to enjoy. Look out for Wezz to blow up just in time Summer
Rising Australian producer Walden releases his newest EP ‘Machine Land’. Walden has gained an incredible amount of support after ‘Intropial’ off Big Beat Records, and he continues to gain momentum. The sound of ‘Machine Land’ is a little different then we were expecting, showcasing Walden’s talent. With darker beats and electro synths, he really took a different approach with ‘Machine Land’. ‘Only Invader’ and ‘Mono World’ also bring unique sounds that will be incorporated into radio shows across the world for the Summer. ‘Mono World’ reminds us a little of a Daft Punk type of track, giving goosebumps all around.
Walden stepped away from his progressive house style with this EP, but we like it. Electronica Oasis has been a supporter of Walden for a long time, and can’t wait for him to be playing main stages at music festivals. Keep it on killing it Walden.
Into The Light is the latest single coming from one of the most consistent electronic producers, Sander van Doorn, and this track is no exception. Collaborating on this song with Sander van Doorn are a pair of production duos, the Dutch based DubVision as well as Mako, who hail from Los Angeles. The progressive beats in Into The Light are awe-striking and strongly complemented by the alluring vocals from Mariana Bell, an Australian born singer/songwriter. With a robust bassline rounding out the energetic sound, this spring-time collaborative effort takes aim at becoming one of the summer’s biggest anthems and chart-toppers. Into The Light is released via the Spinnin‘ Records label, which has had other huge recent releases including a Ferry Corsten tune and Vago from Nari & Milani.

Massive remixes from the brilliant minds behind Tritonal are released on Beatport today. They take ‘Bullet That Saved Me’ and give us not one, but four remixes! In typical Tritonal style, they challenged themselves and withstood expectations. Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed lay down the gentle melody that is accompanied by angelic vocals from singer Underdown. With the help of Sebjak, Ken Loi, and Ilan Bluestone, Tritonal unleashes a package of remixes that are a fresh take on their lead single, off of Tritonal’s ‘Metamorphic’ EP.
‘Festival Mix’: The appropriately named Festival Mix has new wave energy and uplifting beat coupled with soothing lyrics converge make the perfect combination for . When Tritonal dropped the Festival Mix at Ultra Music Festival, it’s no wonder the crowd went wild.
‘Sebjak Rave Remix’: This remix has a grittier sound with a more electro house sound. With sharp synths and a bumping bass, this remix takes on a darker rendition of the original. Sebjak creates perhaps the most infectious for those who can’t resist bouncing to a hot beat.
‘Ken Loi Remix’: The heaviest mix comes from U.S. Producer Ken Loi. His intense interpretation is executed with a crushing drop that leads into a hard bass and synth passage. This is the most forceful and energetic remix of the four.
‘Ilan Bluestone Remix’: If aggressive and tremendous are qualities you prefer in the entirety of tracks you jam to, the Ilan Bluestone Remix is the one for you. This song creates an experience, with a pounding bass and a consistently high energy. Bluestone’s remix has a more progressive take on the original and he brings the vigor with this one.
Although each mix brings something different with their track, they all maintain the same elephantine impression. These releases are of the second part of the ‘Metamorphic’ EP series. Tritonal is currently on tour in the United States.
