As the days leading up to Miami Music Week continue to dwindle, Spinnin’ Records heightens the anticipation for the week-long marathon of electronic dance music events via the release of “Miami 2018 – Night Mix.”
A one-hour collection of new IDs and selections from the catalogs of Spinnin’ standouts like TUJAMO, Quintino, and Valentino Khan, “Miami 2018 – Night Mix” arrives as a high-powered prequel to one of the world’s most recognized and celebrated electronic music events, and as a faithful reflection of the vivacity of the Dutch record label.
Just months after his highly anticipated debut album, ‘From Sunrise to Sunset’, Sam Feldt spreads even more love with the release of his brand-new remix album titled ‘After the Sunset’ out now on Spinnin’ Records. The huge success of Sam’s first album, released in late 2017, filled with 24 songs suitable for each hour in

We’re in a time where music is the easiest and fastest to share it’s ever been, and it’s amazing to watch the results of that sharing evolve music itself. An example of that evolution is the project Culpriit, made up of two artists of different backgrounds coming together to make something great. One-half indie veteran – Colin
Kygo has recently kicked off the first leg of his “Kids in Love” tour and the fomo has been on a million.

Something about European/British accent rapping gets me fired up. Vato Gonzalez dropped “Baseline Riddim” back in April of 2017. If you have not heard it, it comes highly recommended from DJ’s across the globe. The track took over festival and club stages all summer and through the new year. The original was released on the

Tiësto has been at the center of the EDM world since before there was EDM, as one of the world’s most prominent trance DJs. A question I have asked myself over and over again, where did a guy that has been such an inspiration and role model to the world’s most well-known DJ/Producers find his

With the support of fellow Brazilian Alok, Scorsi has taken to Spinnin’ Records for the release of his debut EP, Alok Presents Scorsi. The blossoming Scorsi, after winning the 2016 Miller SoundClash, has secured an eclectic string of releases on Phouse and Sony’s Braslive, capturing the attention of the widely acclaimed house hero Alok. His repertoire ranges from punchy bass house to the emotive future bass of his breakout hit, “So Simple.”
Scorsi lays out his vastly differing deck of cards in Alok Presents Scorsi, made up of two original tracks and two of his Alok remixes, “Big Jet Plane” and “Love Is A Temple,” featuring IRO, which Alok mixed into his 2017 Tomorrowland set. Scorsi offers a bouncy, carefree touch to “Big Jet Plane,” adding Latin drums and a high-pitched lead synth, while his take on “Love Is A Temple” is a straightforward future bass rendition of the original, leaving most of the interlude’s pop-infused guitar chords and vocals intact.
“Crossover” is a high-powered electro house track of Scorsi’s own concoction, begging to be played in the fist-pumping company of gassed up festival-goers. In an even fiercer fashion, the final track, “Tumbah,” is a roaring display of screechy, relentless bass house.
The debut EP seems to serve as a Goldilocks experiment for Scorsi, in which he can’t seem to find quite the right flavor of EDM porridge. The result is a somewhat sporadic body of high-quality work, wherein Scorsi is only beginning to carve his signature style into several vastly differing genres.
