Release: Laidback Luke & Chocolate Puma – Snap That Neck (Original Mix)

laidback-luke-chocolate-pumaThis one is heavy AF!

“We’ve known Laidback Luke for 20 years now, but we never made a record together. Until last summer, when we got together in the studio to make ‘Snap That Neck’. It was a really cool experience to make music with our ‘pupil’, who in his turn became a master for so many other producers and DJ’s. Our approach to making music is quite different, but we have so much history together, and we knew what direction we wanted to go with the track, that the whole process was so much fun and was going very smooth and easy.” – Chocolate Puma

Release: LANY – ILYSB (Ferdinand Weber Remix)

ferdinand-weberSummer is in the air and that mean melodic house is being pumped out left, right and centre. With so many tracks it’s hard to get your track to stand out. Now, getting a release on Spinnin Records definitely helps, but Ferdinand Weber has hit the nail on the head with his remix of “I Love You So Bad” by Lany.” It’s upbeat and poppy; however, it still holds true to the house roots with a it’s percussive genius.

Preview: Dusky – Squeezer (Original Mix)

dusky“Squeezer is a track we’ve been playing in our sets for a while now, with a lot of people requesting it on social media. It centres around a modulating syncopated bassline complimented by a hooky vocal sample, broken up by a melodic breakdown. It completes our Ordinary World set, which we feel represents four very different sides of a Dusky DJ set.” – Nick & Alfie (Dusky)

Release Date: July 31st

Release: Delta Heavy – Ghost (Zomboy Remix)

GhostArt

Blasting its way out of Ram Records today is the latest single from bass duo Delta Heavy, and also a pair of the remixes of the track which is titled “Ghost.” The remixers are Influx and Zomboy, but it is the latter dubstep badman whose version really hits the spot.

Already an richly layered single, Zomboy keeps some of those distinctive vocals, building plenty of tension before switching things up in his trademark style, leaping into a sequence of violent drops, warps and trap style edits.

If you’re feeling this rework, you can buy a copy here.

LastGoodbyeArt

Ultra Music today release the new collaboration between Tom Swoon and Swanky Tunes, titled “Last Goodbye.” Polish DJ/producer Swoon has had a busy period of releases in particular, having just remixed Kelly Clarkson and a rework of Owl City and Aloe Blacc on the way.

Back to this new single, and “Last Goodbye” is electro-fuelled ball of dynamics, packed with a crisp bass line and a thumping beat. It also has moments of contrast – listen out for the dreamy, euphoric vocal breakdown midway through.
