Gareth Emery & Standerwick – Saving Light ft. Hailene (Notaker Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Gareth Emery, Standerwick and Hailene took 2017 by force when they released “Saving Light” and its powerful accompanying music video at the beginning of the year. Listeners and fans were swept away by the emotive power of the trance track, shooting it to No. 1 on Beatport — the first trance track ever to do so.

The trio just released a pack of remixes. Among them, Notaker‘s. St. Louis’ Notaker has steadily made a name for himself in the Monstercat and mau5trap community with impressive tracks like “Shimmer” and “Abyss,” respectively. After posting a video of the artist appearing to work on a “Saving Light” remix months ago, his fans went crazy, speculating what such a remix could entail.

The end result is a beautiful piece of music the likes of which we’ve never seen. What starts off slow and delicate delivers the listener straight into a mesmerizing glitchy drop. Notaker’s “Saving Light” rendition switches back and forth between dark beats and heavenly, symphonic builds that perfectly accentuate Hailene’s vocals.

Notaker’s sound design is second to none, and he continues to prove he’s a force to be reckoned with in the dance music community.

Pegboard Nerds & Quiet Disorder – Move That Body (Soltan Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

The Pegboard Nerds recently finished up their Revenge of the Nerds tour and released their Nerds By Nature (The Remixes) EP back in May.

Now, alongside the highly respected Monstercat label, they’ve released a powerful remix by Soltan of their “Move That Body” track with Quiet Disorder. Soltan put a very different spin on this from the original.

Beginning with Middle Eastern sounds, Soltan takes no time building the energy within the remix. Soltan blends the Middle Eastern elements with Spanish melodies during a few of the breaks and transitions. The drop is much heavier, having more of a Zomboy or Getter feel to it. Its minimalist vibe allows for maximum power throughout.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 1

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


I’ll start Volume 1 with a confession: I didn’t know the original version of this song when I heard this edit. Laszlo, an 18-year-old up-and-comer from The Netherlands, has continuously impressed with releases both on Monstercat and independently. He usually produces epic electro house tracks, so this smooth, sexy Post Malone rework was a bit unexpected. Lazslo toys with the vocals layered over slick synths and a melody that glides the listener effortlessly through the track. It’s completely refreshing, and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since it came out on June 27.

(Note: I did finally go out and listen to the original. I much prefer Laszlo’s version).


Gareth Emery and Christina Novelli‘s “Concrete Angel‘ is an iconic example of the emotional beauty that permeates trance music. Celebrating the song’s 5-year anniversary, Emery released a set of remixes to “Concrete Angel” and among them was this perfect trance rework of the original track, masterfully done by ReOrder. It packs a harder punch than the original, but still maintains the initial integrity of the track. ReOrder’s trance beats are slightly more aggressive than Emery’s, but his builds are beautiful and soulful.


Drum & bass has a special place in my heart. Since Pendulum established my love of electronic music in 2010, I’ve always gone back to the genre-well in search of tracks that give me the same euphoric feeling songs like “Witchcraft” and “Watercolour” did when I heard them for the first time. When I first heard T & Sugah’s “Cast Away” three years ago, I got that same feeling. After following the Dutch duo’s music and loving everything they released, seeing a new track of theirs pop up was a thrill. “Sleepless” showcases the duo’s mastery of drum & bass with a swift beat that intensifies MVE’s vocals in the best way.


While browsing the latest content on SoundCloud’s feed, something unexpected cropped up: a new track from KDrew. KDrew has always made consistently solid music (c’mon, who doesn’t love “Last Train to Paradise” and “Summer Ashes“?) so it was interesting to see what his latest original track was like, especially since he hasn’t released new music in a while. With fun pitched vocals and a rushing trap-infused beat, “Back To You” marks KDrew’s triumphant return to the dance music world.


Since its release earlier this year, Zedd and Alessia Cara‘s hit “Stay” has, unsurprisingly, gotten a whole variety of remixes. Among these is a refreshing remix from producer Aylen. In a world where so many remixes sound the same, Aylen’s funky take on the track is catchy and new. He takes an otherwise mainstream-sounding track and pumps it up with a heightened tempo. Flawless harmonies line the bridge of the song, building up to a driving drop that begs shufflers to hit the dance floor and bust out their moves.

Stream Muzzy’s drum & bass mix for BBC Radio 1

This post was originally published on this site

One of BBC Radio 1’s latest mixes includes an eclectic and energy-packed set from UK drum & bass powerhouse Muzzy.

The producer has graced the airwaves with a wild 30-minute mix of some of the best drum & bass, preceded by a short interview. In the interview, Muzzy discloses that he’s working on a number of collaborations, including one with his interviewer, Metrik.

“I always try to do something different with every release,” he says in the interview. “I’m doing a bunch of collabs, and I think that’s the next big thing to put out… this collection of music I’ve been making with other people.”

He mentions working with other Monstercat artists and other established drum & bass producers, along with a few “curve balls” that veer away from the drum & bass scene.

“It’s all about working with artists who are masters of their craft and know the different types of music — not just one particular style, so I think that’s the game plan with this next record,” he says.

On the heels of his Spectrum EP earlier this year, the drum & bass producer seems to be working tirelessly on new material. He calls his BBC Radio 1 mix an “energetic and chaotic” blend of what he likes to include in his DJ sets.

Find the interview between 0:00 and 3:40, with the mix beginning afterwards.

Savoy & Grabbitz – Contemplate (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

It’s a match made in heaven.

Dynamic trio Savoy teamed up with skilled producer and vocalist Grabbitz to release a song that impeccably combines both of their styles.

As Grabbitz shifts his music in a more performance-based, rock hybrid direction, working together with a group that bill themselves as “electronic rock music” made perfect sense. In a May interview with Dancing Astronaut, Grabbitz noted that his style and Savoy’s “fit together and coincide in a way,” making way for the beautiful blending of genres that is “Contemplate.”

Grabbitz’s soulful vocals unite with a softer side of Savoy’s typically edgy rock sound. “Contemplate” has an effortless ’80s groove to it, with a carefree synth melody that floats smoothly throughout the course of the song.

The production in the Monstercat release is flawless, showcasing all four artists’ attention to detail and ability to build a song that’s accessible for fans of all genres.
