New Progressive House: Hardwell X Chris Jones – Young Again

New Progressive House: Hardwell & Chris Jones - Young Again No. 1 DJ or not, when Hardwell puts out a new track, you hear it. Young Again, from Hardwell x Chris Jones, has all the signature aspects of a modern electronic pop track. Nostalgic lyrics, booming vocals, some guitars and... well… it has a melody… let’s just leave it at that.       The melody rides on a detuned synth which gives it a retro feel, but also sounds a bit cheap. If Hardwell’s going to be denoted the best DJ in the world, our standards should be high, and that’s the criticism here - he...

Spotlight: This is Heinz Releases First Album via Muttis Mischkonsum; Listen To “Shady Lady

Muttis-Mischkonsum Always one step forward. But never on the run. Step by step, track by track it all comes up to an outstanding album. Let’s dance with "This is Heinz". The Berlin based DJ and producer knows how to combine timeless synths, nice claps and wild beats to weapons for the dancefloor.

Now his album comes up via Muttis Mischkonsum. He will present his...

Top Drum & Bass and Drumstep Songs 2014 [Week #42]

high contrast - california love Here we are with the best Drum & Bass and Drumstep tracks of 2014 - Week 42. This week I'd like to feature a few new selections from State Of Mind, Black Sun Empire, High Contrast, TC and more. Drum & Bass continues to be like a difficult girlfriend to me... she continually shows me her bad sides and good sides, on and off, time and again, and yet I keep coming back knowing that she'll treat me right and show me an amazing time when we're out alone together in a packed club. Unlike with a woman, I choose to forego protection with...

New Bass: Baauer – One Touch (VIP RMX ft. AlunaGeorge)

First Listen: Baauer - One Touch (ft. AlunaGeorge) Baauer's new single One Touch (VIP RMX) is all sorts of dirty. The lascivious track instructs “Touch Me”, or rather “Tocame… mmmm”. It may be a simple comparison, but remember when Baauer told you to “do the Harlem Shake”? Look how that turned out. The Aluna side of AlunaGeorge delivers some irresistible vocals, and Baauer’s surprisingly progressive arrangement sends them soaring. “One Touch” is still very much bass driven and shares a few similarities to "Harlem Shake", but the compelling progression represents...

New Audio Card For Twitter Allows You To Stream Music In Your News Feed

New Audio Card For Allows You To Stream Music In Your Twitter Feed It looks like Twitter is not abandoning hope of being as music destination yet, as they have just announced the ability to stream music directly in your timeline/news feed. The capability comes from a new audio card in Twitter, and already some big EDM artists, like Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix and David Guetta.     SoundCloud is the first "official" partner that can be streamed directly in the timeline, but it looks as if some artists are already tweeting out iTunes links as well. Earlier this year, there were...

Dillon Francis and Deadmau5 Collide on Some Chords Remix

Dillon Francis and Deadmau5 Collide on Some Chords Remix This is no ordinary game of cat and mouse. Dillon Francis and Deadmau5 have created a battle royale with this Some Chords remix. The cat-loving producer brings a fierce and unpredictable attitude to the Deadmau5 track and wages an all-out war. The energized track claws, scratches, and bites on a rush of electro adrenaline. Messing with Deadmau5 typically isn't recommend, and gearing him up this much is simply insane. You don’t want to miss this. The remix will be released November 24th as part of the 5 Years of Mau5 double...
