Project 46, the Canadian producer/DJ duo has released their newest track, a remix of Kelly Clarkson’s ‘People Like Us’. It was somewhat shocking that Kelly Clarkson’s vocals fit so well with progressive house, but with Project 46′s high-level production, it’s a bit less of a surprise. The vocals fit extremely well with the kicks and claps, and the underlying synths only add to the good vibes this song gives out. Advertised by Project 46 as a song for the radio, and not a club banger, this song won’t be as heavy as a lot of other progressive house songs, but is still an extremely well made track that is great to listen to anywhere.
Project 46 is only getting better and better, with a track coming out with Kaskade later this year, which you can listen to in Kaskade’s Ultra Music Festival set. Click here and skip to 49:35 to listen!

The ever impressive Above and Beyond never fails to create flawless concoctions of sounds that send chills of pleasure down their listeners’s spines. With their latest track, ‘Walter White’, there is no exception to the trio’s pattern of tasteful production.
Since its premier as an ID track at the final installment of Trance Around The World from Bangalore, India in November of 2012, the official drop of ‘Walter White’ has eagerly been awaited by A&B followers. Those of us who tune in to satellite radio to get our weekly A&B fill had the pleasure of first hearing “Walter White” on Above & Beyond’s radio show, Group Therapy; Episode #001. (Group Therapy is the successor to A&B’s former radio show, Trance Around The World). Interestingly, ‘Walter White’, which is off of Anjuna Beats Volume 10, was named in tribute to the TV character from the Breaking Bad series. Already a club hit, ‘Walter White’ comes roaring in with a tech-like rhythm. The melody then flows into long, deep bass lines that are almost hypnotic, before erupting again with piercing synths. The song emulates the captivating charisma A&B always brings to the table. Give the track that goes out to “Walter White aka Heisenberg” a listen and see if it can leave you spellbound.

The Chainsmokers sure can pump out quality remixes. Their newest remix of Daughter’s ‘Medicine’ is nothing short of extravagant. The home-grown NYC duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pal have a really unique talent in which they have showcased with previous remixes of Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘Sleep Alone’ and Jonsi’s ‘Around Us’. They can bring an EDM sound to songs of any genre and their remix to ‘Medicine’ proves so. “We heard this song on a depressing cold winter day in NYC (it can get pretty bad) but as soon as we heard the haunting voice of Elena from Daughter and the bands equally incredible wallowing piano chords, we didn’t necessarily feel happier, but we fell in love with the song and knew we had to try give our Chainsmokers touch to it without ruining the already beautiful song”. This is one of those tracks that you can listen to over and over again and feel a sense of peace every time.
