Leave it to Seven Lions and Minnesota to come out with a track that infuses all different genre’s of electronic music into one glitchy, bassed out mix. Mimi Page opens up the track with her atmospheric vocals, leading into a constant progression of sounds. This one’s being offered up for free off of OWSLA’s subscription service, The Nest; however if you aren’t subscribed to that service, you can grab it from Seven Lion’s Soundcloud below.
Shogun is one of the producers you have to be proud of. With trance being a predominantly international genre, Shogun has come up the ranks as one of the most successful trance producer from America in the modern era. We have the likes of Gabriel & Dresden, Norin & Rad, and only a couple other within the select few, so it is quite an honor for Shogun to achieve the things he has in such a short time. Regardless of what shows he has headlined and previous works of music, his new two song EP has garnered support indicative of his entire career. The first song “Drop” is currently #2 accompanied by “Supernova” at #4 on the Trance Beatport charts. I confidently foresee Shogun having big things lined up for this summer, and I can’t wait to see what he does. If you haven’t head this EP yet, stop what you are doing and get with it.

One of Ferry Corsten’s hit singles “Rock Your Body Rock” has been brought back onto the charts with two remixes by the emerging Russian producer Arty as well as Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. The song gained popularity through the 2004 film It’s all Gone Pete Tong, and, after several years, has been revived with several remixes that will keep the tune around time after time.

Armin van Buuren closed out Ultra weekend one on the Main Stage, and did it in a big way. For the opener, he brought out Trevor Guthrie and played the W&W remix of his new song “This Is What It Feels Like”. His set was a perfect close to a great weekend, and the unreleased song got it started the right way. This track is included in his new album “Intense,” out May 3rd on Armada Music. The official video has already released so that’s included as well as a shitty horizontal iPhone video from Ultra. There will be a full description of Armin’s set in the UMF Recap post this week, but this unreleased single and remix deserve immediate attention!
Today I have some of my favorite Progressive House & Trance, plus all of the in between, that has been released in recent weeks. The first four songs are ones that I specifically remember hearing at two recent concerts I attended, Cosmic Gate and W&W, which were both absolutely amazing as both duos kept the tunes pumping until three in the morning. The first tune on the blocks is a signature 4AM remix by Dash Berlin of his hit track from last year, “Fool For Life”. The next three are all tunes I heard while attending the W&W set. I actually have two of the tracks on video, each before their release dates. The tracks I’m referring to are the Gareth Emery original cover and the MaRLo original that premiered on ASOT 2013. The Gareth Emery track is amazing for the classic melody from the classic, “Meet Her at the Love Parade”. The last two tracks are also great tunes that deserve a listen. Fisherman & Hawkins have been making some great tunes with “Apache” and now “Gold”, so keep an eye out for these two.

This is a match made in heaven, the classic trance of Armin van Buuren meets the new school edge of W&W. Out on Armada, “D# Fat” made it’s debut on ASOT 2013 and brings together edgy tech synths with a nice piano melody in amazing harmony. It’s no wonder Armin has been a fan of W&W, the dutch producers have been stellar since they exploded on the scene, shooting up the charts with tracks like “Shogun,” “Invasion,” “Lift Off!” and the Beatport Top 5 track, “The Code,” more recently. For those who will also be in Miami for WMC, Armin & W&W are playing together on Sunday, March 24th at Story–grab tickets here while they last!
