It's not too easy these days when it comes to finding an electronic label willing to support a fresh new sound.

With an array of unparalleled tracks released over the last year they continue to keep the music flowing. Until June 21st, use the code "vinyl30" to receive 30% all vinyl.
Fresh off his standout remix of Alesso's chart climbing hit "Heroes," the Kentucky artist has lent his slick house touch to Axwell Λ Ingrosso's soaring lead single "Something New."Pitching down the vocal hook and layering a tight percussive groove over a pleasant arpeggiator and throbbing bass notes, AMTRAC skillfully takes the anthemic presence of the Swede’s latest and tones it down into a melancholic love song custom fit with a brand new chassis.
Just two days ago, Pete Tong welcomed Zonderling to their first guest mix on BBC Radio 1's "All Gone Pete Tong" after forming just three years ago . Hailing from the north of Holland, Zonderling have received a wide range of DJ support from Oliver Heldens to Tiesto and Hardwell. They had a successful string of releases in 2014 are a kicking the year off with a remix of Eelke Kleijn's "Mistakes I've Made". The vocals are dropped over a cool groove filled with manic bleeps and sounds, working towards a subtle but highly effective drop.
The Los Angeles-based Bixel Boys have taken on a wide variety of tunes to rework with their ultra-catchy production style, flipping originals from Kieza, Theophilus London, Botnek and 3LAU to name a few. Their latest remix undertaking comes by way of their take on Le Youth‘s “R E A L,” taking the track’s future house motif in a whole new direction. The pair take Le Youth’s lighthearted house tune and reframe it into a thumping dance floor weapon. The rework contrasts its original counterpart by re-focusing its energy to accommodate a club setting, throwing in funky, bouncing bass lines that provide a bit more shuffle than the original mix. Working in keenly placed vocal cuts, the track leaves the original’s minimal appeal at the door for a brand of future house that is much different than Le Youth’s initial offering.
While eclipsing the reputation of the pair’s last release on Size Records may be an impossible feat to achieve, Matisse & Sadko‘s “Persia” has arrived. Forty-seven releases after “SLVR,” Size Records’ discography has once again been bolstered by a big room weapon. Relenting on their melodic lineage which assisted their popularity, the Russian pair’s latest glides past a glitchy vocal sample and into a pungent surge that creates the original’s focal point. “Persia” not only marks Matisse & Sadko’s first release of 2015, but the original also continues Size Records’ surge of big room material into the new year.
It has been quite a while since we have heard any news or material from producer slash vocalist Martin Solveig, but an unlikely connection with trap and electro house stars GTA has brought his enchanting voice back to life with “Intoxicated.” The Spinnin’ Deep label debut from all three musicians, “Intoxicated” dives into the recent trend of the ‘future house’ movement, the intersection of heavy brass sound engineering and the classic deep house genre. An extraordinarily catchy yet appropriately balanced vocal lays against an instrumental that goes against productions crafted by GTA in recent memory, replacing thumping 808s and blaring electro synths with dark aspects of the essential late-night tune.
With original productions coming more sparingly and in more commercially appealing fashion, The Chainsmokers have made a habit of flaunting their best sounds on remix duties. Renditions of Josef Salvat’s “Open Season” and Anna of the North’s “Sway” are two recent examples of the duo departing from their mainstream efforts with execution, and their latest comes in similar taste. Working around Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne’s “Real Love,” The Chainsmokers render obscure horns with house grooves that drift from tradition. The final product is just the sort of organized chaos that makes each of the remixes from the duo unique to The Chainsmokers’ brand of expectations surrounded by the unexpected.
For sure this release caused some rumors. DJs have been playing it for a while now, without anybody really knowing where the track came from. Well, the cat's out of the bag, Dutch duo on the rise, Pep & Rash, are responsible for this genuine crowdpleaser. Rumors features a vocal line impossble to get out of your mind, accompanied by an inventive bass line. Expect to continue hearing this track over the next few months and make sure to keep your ears out for Pep & Rash
Many EDX fans thought they would have to wait until the new year for the Swiss producer to release any new music after his electrifying dual-sided Collateral Effects EP. But, EDX gives fans one last glimpse of summer with his “Dubai Skyline Remix” of Nora En Pure & Sons of Maria’s single, “Uruguay.” The club maestro allows the sparkling piano composition and summery vibes of Nora En Pure and Sons of Maria’s original to stay in tact yet he expertly infuses the perfect amount of bass and bump to stir up some serious nostalgia from the summer season. The beauty of the track lies in EDX’s ability to integrate the popular sounds of today’s dance music with the old school club sounds that everybody loves.
