When discussing the notion of reworking the classic
, the phrase that comes into mind is
“Do not fix what isn’t broken”
. And while this still holds true, as not many have attempted to remix the track, the electronic group
have accomplished something truly magnificent and exceptional of any remix or edit to-date, bringing fresh air into the beloved progressive single. The epicosity of the classical orchestral genre combined with the present dubstep scene is equivalent of a Hans Zimmer composition with a twist. I give credit to the
amazing Dancing Astronauts
for the great find and look forward to what else Alesia can offer in the near future.
most acclaimed single to this day, hitting #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Chart in mid-April. While the young and aspiring producer’s hit differs from his usual hard-hitting Electro, there is truly something magical and mesmerizing about “Language”, which was considered during the making of its music video. Featuring creatures from the presumed Hunger Games, an Atlantis nightclub/lightshow and a cross between King Kong and a super-chameleon, the video is undoubtedly beautifully crafted with a mesmerising scenery and effects that are perfectly synced to the beat of the song (Note: Atlantis nightclub). However, the story plot fails me as the settings constantly change from swimming underwater to falling from the sky with little to no connection. Overall it’s a very well-made video with stunning shots and an underlying message of facing your fears, but is unsuccessful at telling a story. If anyone has a clue as to who the big guy is and why he dies, please leave a comment; I’m curious.
What I’ve been waiting for for a long time has finally come out to make this world a better place. Years ago when Canadian duo
, they knew what they were doing. Omar Linx is unbeatable when it comes to rapping over a Dubstep track, especially if that track has been produced by the Dubstep legends Zeds Dead. It seems as their badass tunes were made for the Toronto based rapper. Recently Zeds Dead released their newest EP ‘The Living Dead’ and what was expected, happened. Four sick tracks have been produced to complete this EP. Badass lvl: 100
Zeds Dead – The Living Dead EP
German native Alex Ridha aka
has flown a little under the radar for me in the past few months, but he has obviously been hard at work in the studio. Recently announcing the release of a new album on Rolling Stones, the German producer has given us a little sneak peek of what to expect with his track “What You Want”. Filled with similarities with his 2007 debut LP “Oi Oi Oi” Boys Noize provides us with a flashback of what the early days of modern electro was like, days where the likes of
were just starting to gain momentum. “What You Want” blends oldschool scratchy electro with deep thumping basslines, creating a perfect mix of old and new electro.

The start of the summer looks bright as
better known as

, featuring the unique vocals of
, most notable for his contribution for the yet unreleased vocal version of
. Unlike the bass-blasting
or the hard-hitting
, Anton takes on a more radio-friendly (in comparison) approach with “Spectrum”; nevertheless, the track still contains that “Zedd feel” to it, featuring funky electro house synths, signature greasy bassline, melodious build-ups and a satisfying, explosive drop. The good news don’t end here as “Spectrum” is the first single from his upcoming album! We’ll keep you updated as new information comes in; meanwhile, enjoy this anthem.
Also, an interesting observation: Ever since “Shave It”, all of Zedd’s original productions’ names start on the letter “S” (Shave it, Scorpion Move, Stars Come Out, Slam the Door, Shotgun, and now Spectrum). Now isn’t that neat
