Dyro is louder then ever right now and returns to Revealed Recordings for his second major release of the year. ‘Raid’ is a collaboration with fellow Dutchman Rene Kuppens and reached the number four spot on the Miami Buzz Chart. The tracks light synths formulate a pulsating beat that lead into a massive drop. Followed by a deep bassline and low end wobbles. This track will do wonders to a festival crowd!

Heavy Electro House Beat.

Nari & Milani made it clear they were for real upon their release of ‘Atom’. The hard hitting Electro Anthem is already one of the top selections of this years festival season and today they return with a remix of The Only’s track ‘Drag Me Down’. The Italian duo remix their Electro House bass with the original vocals to perfection! This one is worth your attention and do not lose track of Nari & Milani!

Avesta hit the scene hard with ‘Dutchano’ and then answered  with ‘Arena’. A track with enough prestige to land a spot on Tiesto’s Club Life Volume Two : Miami. Yesterday, Avesta continued his roll through 2012 with the release of ‘Rollin’ on Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records. ‘Rollin’ is dynamic track loaded with heavy progressive chords and electro synths and LBL influence.

The M Machine released their new EP, Metropolis Pt. I today, after it’s premier on Rolling Stone. After 23k Facebook “Likes” and summer gigs at EDC and Electric Zoo, little was still known about the three man DJ group. Now, after months of silence the San Francisco trio has unveiled the mystery behind their sound. The first half of their debut album contains six tracks oozing with original sound. Bridging genres, the M Machine incorporates Electronica, Electro House and even Indie influenced dance elements that together create complex atmospheres, beautiful melodies and amazing synth riffs. Not only has their sound created a huge buzz in electronic music, but it just happened to catch Skrillex’s attention. Metropolis Pt. I was released on OWSLA Records. 

“The beautiful part of electronic music right now is that it’s literally infinite,” Coenen explains. “We write songs just like any other indie band or rock band would, but every instrument is powerful and big because it’s all electronic. You have the best of both worlds – the heaviness of dance music, but you then have the soul of vocal driven music.”

Since the begining The M Machines intentions have all been visual. They  wanted to write an album  conceptual and immense with imagery. Metropolis is a concept album. Each song is a different chapter in the story of dystopian city. With this release, The M Machine looks to perfect the union between Man and Machine.

“Sonically, the driving bass of  ‘Immigrants’ and dubstep dancefloor killer ‘Shadow In The Rose Garden’ aggressively assert the raw power of electronic music, while ‘A King Alone’ and ‘Faces’ showcase the band’s human touch: vocal-driven synth-pop at its finest. Replete with massive string arrangements, ‘Deep Search’ and ‘Black’ further demonstrate the trio’s production prowess, yet reveal a refreshing emphasis on musicality, further highlighting the cinematic feeling that has become one of the band’s trademarks”.

Anything Madeon or his music and House Anthems is all over it.  Youtube acoustic sensation, Collin McLoughlin took a stab at the EDM World and absolutely nailed it, with his vocal edit of the Madeon Anthem ‘Icarus’. McLoughlin preserves the exhilarating feeling that characterizes Madeaon’s music and his uplifting vocals expand upon the central theme of the original Anthem perfectly.

Bonus Anthem: Some more ‘Icarus’, this time from the Toronto trio Keys N Krates. I actually prefer their remix to the original. KNK add a little more hip, energy and flare!

Hardwell’s new track ‘Kontiki’ has been lingering in set lists since the fall and made its Beatport premier  on Monday. The original is not all that, however the remix by Dutch peer Dyro is a track you don’t want to ignore. Already reaching the tenth spot on Beatport’s Electro House chart, Dyro’s remix starts with the same chord progression and then the track flips, when the dominating Electro build and drop takeover. Dyro’s remix explodes with energy. Hits harder, and deeper and has replaced the original in Hardwell’s sets since Ultra. Remixes like this one, make it apparent that there is a new wave of Dutch talent still waiting to explode upon the industry.

Hardwell drops the Dyro remix at Ultra.

The Zedd-produced track and Eva Simons original, ‘I Don’t Like You’ just clashed with the sounds that categorize a Nicky Romero Anthem. Eva’s vocals are overlaid a typical Romero piano melody before dropping into a classic drop filled with wompy sounds and steel-clad chord progression. Romero flawlessly turns the original completely upside down, as he returns to the elements that have made his career soar!

Back to the hard hitting beats.
