Preview: Arty feat. Chris James – Together We Are

Arty is one of the pioneers in the new style of “Trance 2.0”, the bright, euphoric trend that combines elements from Trance Music and Progressive. His latest track ‘Together We Are’ is just another example of that, where his blissful production is accompanied by vocalist Chris James, whom you might remember from deadmau5’s ‘The Veldt‘.

The track is coming out February 18th, so stay tuned!

Marina and the Diamonds – How To Be A Heartbreaker (Dada Life Remix)

After the release of their album Rules of Dada, Dada Life are back with a new remix of ‘How To Be a Heartbreaker’ from Marina and the Diamonds. Get the champagne and bananas out because Dada Life are kicking off 2013 with a bang.

Butch Clancy – A Beautiful Mind *Track*

Butch Clancy - A Beautiful Mind

A lot of you guys have asked for Trap so I’m gonna try to post as much as I can. My Trap favorite of the week is ‘Beautiful Mind’ from Butch Clancy, a fresh Trap banger that’s got me into Butch. With horn stabs, dirty Trap synths and that addictive 808 that we love, ‘A Beautiful Mind’ is definitely worth the listen.

Hook N Sling vs Nervo – Reason (Vicetone Remix) *Track*

It’s a name that has been slowly gaining popularity for the past year. Vicetone have been consitently releasing remixes that have caught them more and more attention. Their latest remix of Hook N’ Sling and NERVO’s ‘Reason’ is no different, giving the original track a whole new level of energy. Did somebody say free download?

Dada Life – So Young So High

Dada Life – So Young So High

Off of their album ‘The Rules of Dada’ that was recently released, ‘So Young So High’ is one of the hard, club-oriented tracks that confirms Dada Life’s reputation as some the of the craziest DJs in the business. Along with many other tracks in the album, I was very divided on this track, as although it’s something I’d like to hear at a gig, I can’t stand the high-pitched, cheesy vocals. I feel as though a little more effort could have made on Dada Life’s part when it comes to that.

Since I’m divided over it, I’m gonna ask you my favorite question: Hit or Shit?

Skrillex – Summit (feat. Ellie Goulding)

Skrillex – Summit (feat. Ellie Goulding) [Video by Pilerats]

‘Summit’ was my favorite song off of Skrillex’s Bangarang EP, so the release of the music video was exciting. If you’ve never heard the song, it’s not your typical hard, wobbly, gritty Skrillex, but takes a much more mellow route, with the vocals of Ellie Goulding. It was also the main song used in the Skrillex-themed RPG entitled ‘Skrillex Quest’, an 8-bit game inspired by Zelda.

What do you think of this style of producing for Skrillex?
