As you enter the “Higher Cognitive Process,” you are immediately hit with a sense of wonder as to what you are about to hear, to feel, to experience. The layered synth melodies combined with the pulsating baselines of “Paracas” grip you firmly and never lets go. “Golden Ratio” begins with a greater emphasis on percussion. As it dives into another series of complimentary primary and secondary melodies, my head is immediately bobbing up and down in line with the powerful driving baseline. The breakdown is as smooth as a newborn’s fanny, and the primary melody is infectious and becomes entangled with a series of secondary synths that come in and out of the aural environment with great fluidity. If you can’t tell this is one of my choice selections off the album. The flawless production aside, the entrancing vibe is what makes this track a highlight for me as a listener and a set staple as a DJ.
Epic new EP from one of my favorite Anjunabeats artists, Ilan Bluestone. Fresh off of his latest hit single “Spheres” he drops a huge 3 track EP featuring entrancing melodies and euphoric synths. Huge support across the industry including legends, Above & Beyond. Been playing “Waves of LA” a lot and really dig the vibes. What’s your favorite?
Ah the changing of the seasons. Back in the city full time. Lots of cool events coming up, so stay tuned. In the mean time, enjoy my new mix series. Going to be going back and forth between ze deep stuff and those sessi progressive vibes you know and love. Here is Vol. 1 and it was highly influenced by my love for all things Eric Prydz. If you are going to either of the upcoming shows in NYC, let me know. Me and Ralphy J will be at both. And it will be glorious. I actually have a half chub thinking about it right now…
Here it is ladies and gents. The last Visions of Summer mix for 2013. Think of it as the grand finale. Yes I could have made it 4 hours, but that seems excessive. So it’s almost 3 hours, and it’s nothing but beautiful productions from some of my favorite artists and labels. Of course there are some from the Anjunabeats camp, as well as several from the hottest rising label in progressive house right now, Ifonika, which has produced killer tracks from Roddy Reynaert and JimiJ…to name a couple. There are some older deep cuts, a couple edits from myself, a new single from The Chainsmokers, and numerous selections from the Enhanced imprints. Maybe if you’re lucky, I will post the tracklist. In the meantime, grab your favorite headphones or speakers and get into it.
It’s been awhile…I knowww. Got a new edit for you kids. The vibe is strong with this one. Sedi puts that magic touch on a sensational original from Vitodito and Matthew Koma‘s vocals just feel right. Throw it on and get that euphoric summer vibe. I will be at Audien and Adrian Lux tonight at Webster melting. Come join me. I’m sure you can figure out how to contact me. Cheers.
As if the original track wasn’t good enough, The Knocks had to go and do this…A remix package featuring a couple silky smooth, funky fraiche, nu disco remixes from Treasure Fingers, Goldroom and Amtrac, who are three of our favorites here at AYNE, and then a pretty stellar progressive house remix from Fareoh. The other remixes are from NAPT (breaks) and The Aston Shuffle (electro house). The first four are all mint. The others aren’t my favorite styles but take them for a spin cause the producers deserve it. Previews and purchase links below (couldn’t find an Amtrac preview, which makes me sad…but oh well…it’s not like you won’t download it anyway). Make sure you support all the artists and buy via Beatport. Original is below as well. Didn’t post it before…tisk tisk.
For those who like to get down on the floor and groove a bit.
That fun big room shit. You know you love it.
