Such a baller move ending with “Nightride.” Love it. Now onto Mr. Gold. Thomas always makes dank bootlegs. The one I want to highlight is obviously the one featuring “Allein” from the one and only, Eric Prydz. He mashes it up with Tommy Trash’s remix of “Wicked Woman” and it is sensational. Not quite G&D’s version but it plays. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can’t afford it.

Morgan Page is pretty fantastic as well. Great taste and even better production. His year end mix is quite large. 2hrs broken into 2 parts. Respect brotha. Also, love that he put the times for each song on there. So, if you are a newbie to this whole “dance music thing” and rely heavily on track lists, you are in luck. And as far as a solid “Top 30” list goes, this one is fairly on point…though I wish he put some deeper cuts on there, as well as more of his own mashups and original productions. But, hey, beggars can’t be choosers.

Oh and if you are trying to decipher our political stance from the picture above…don’t think to hard on it. We pretty much concur that they are both less than stellar in pretty much every significant category. Here’s to the bleak future of American politics and the continued rise of dance music globally.

RELEASE: Nicky Romero & Nervo – Like Home (The Remixes) [Protocol]

Out today on Nicky’s label, Protocol Recordings, is the remix package for his collab with Nervo titled “Like Home.” Huge artists on this remix EP. First off, mister Dannic, who has been on a rampage in 2011. Guess that’s what happens when one of your best friends is the #6 DJ in the world and runs his own label.  That said, nothing can take away from the dude’s talent. He produced the best remix out of these three by far. Funky, thick, progressive style drops that will make your knees ache and booty shake. The other two are from Dillon Francis and Gregor Salto. Definitely can’t say enough about these two producers. Even though I prefer the Dannic version, these cats hold their own, especially the swag cat himself. I would just go ahead and grab all three. You never know where the night will take you. Be ready.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Adele – Skyfall (Landis Remix)

From the same dude who brought you an massive remixes of SHM’s “Don’t You Worry Child” and Nicky Romero’s “Camorra,” is back with a soaring, big-room remix of Adele’s “Skyfall.” Credit where it’s due is something I try to stand by. And Landis deserves it in spades. Play this loud and you will understand why this deserves our praise. Grab the free download below.

RELEASE: Nicky Romero & Nervo – Like Home (Original Mix) [Protocol]

Out yesterday on his own label, Protocol Recordings, is the new hit single from Nicky Romero, with Nervo on the collaboration.  The talents of these three young stars collide in one hell of a progressive house banger. The synth work and vocals are stellar. This one is for the big room, peak time, max volume. Pretty much an essential track for this fall. Buy it below. I have also included a preview of the Dillon Francis remix that will be released in a couple weeks. It’s fuego. Stay tuned.

Beatport Link

Mr. Francis slowsteppin’ it for us with a bit of that whomp. Preview from Nicky’s podcast.


PREVIEW: Nicky Romero & Nervo – Like Home (Original Mix) [Protocol]

Nicky and the always fun and sexy Nervo twins come together for another collab. This one is high energy and extremely melodic. Similar synth work as Nicky’s collab with Avicii called “Stranger.” It is set to be released a week from today via Nicky’s label, Protocol Recordings. The vocals are simply gorgeous, and combined Nicky’s genius melodies, they will carry this one to the Beatport Top 10.

“Cause you make it feel like home.”

PREVIEW: Avicii & Nicky Romero – Stranger (Original Mix)


The huge unreleased collab from Avicii and Nicky Romero that was previously called “Nicktim,” now has vocals and will be released under the name “Stranger.” Yet another beautiful vocal track from two of the biggest progressive house producers in the game. You could say that this one is essential. Preview is taken from Tim’s latest “Le7els” Podcast and will be released this month. More info to come soon.
