EDX Releases His “Indian Summer” Remix of Above & Beyond’s “Blue Sky Action”

A Pete Tong endorsed anthem and immediate festival favourite, Above & Beyond‘s “Blue Sky Action” (feat. Alex Vargas) has been turning heads globally throughout the summer of 2014. Emotive and atmospheric in typically epic proportions, “Blue Sky Action” now sees a re-imagining by long-time friend of the Anjuna family Maurizio Colella, aka EDX, and his remix is out now.

Purchase EDX’s “Indian Summer” remix of Above & Beyond’s “Blue Sky Action” on iTunes: http://goo.gl/VF8MyC or Beatport: http://goo.gl/HpiheE.

Equally adept at creating peak-time anthems or contemporary progressive deep house, Maurizio has long been admired by Above & Beyond for his dexterity of sound and memorable melodies. Taking a deeper approach reminiscent of recent hits “Cool You Off,” ”Air For Life” and “Reckless Ardor,” EDX’s “Blue Sky Action” remix is an unflinching dance floor mover. A resolute bassline and tight groove give way to a melancholic chord heavy breakdown, with Alex Vargas emotive vocal carrying throughout the track – before falling back to the ear-grabbing bass heavy riff.

W&W – Bigfoot (Dillon Francis Remix)

Last year, electro power-duo W&W dropped their fattest song to date, “Big Foot“, that sent pulses throughout festival crowds. Even in the wake of his upcoming debut album, moombahton poster-boy, Dillon Francis, drops an even harder remix of W&W’s smash hit. Labeled “#BIG ASS TRAP IN UR BUTT,” Dillon definitely goes BIG with this remix and calls upon his wisdom of trap to add a unique spin. He keeps the build-ups intact but on the first drop rearranges the percussion and synths to drop even harder in a typical trap-style. Now, the second drop is a different beast. Francis even writes in the description “THE SECOND DROP IS MY FAVORITE PART.” It’s safe to say that Dillon steps it up a notch and goes hard in the paint with that drop. This remix will for sure rock crowds at the remaining festivals this year as the season comes to a close. Stream the remix below and be on the look out for Dillon Francis’ upcoming album “Money Sucks, Friends Rule.”

“United We Dance” – Ultra’s Masterpiece of an Aftermovie

Music festivals can contend for one of the most magical experiences on Earth. The pounding bass of the massive speakers, the friendliness of fellow attendees, the carefree attitude of everyone and everything, and the all around atmosphere of people coming together to listen to good music. Many festivals have tried to attract more people through aftermovies, where they showcase the euphoric experience that attendees that occurs when at their festival. This usually includes 10-15 minutes (or in Tomorrowland’s case over half an hour) of sky cams and crowd shots backed by a festival mix to get your heart pumping at your laptop. But this year, Ultra Music Festival stepped up their aftermovie to the next level.

The sound of the waves at the beginning sends chills immediately down your spine. Final Kid has been the mastermind behind the Ultra Aftermovie for years, but this year he changed his style up. The entire video revolves around the interviews of some of the most influential DJs and producers that have shaped what Ultra is today, including Carl Cox, Kaskade, Pete Tong, Armin van Buuren, and many others. With highlights from the festival and the Miami culture, the artists discuss their feeling of the vibe at Ultra and WMC that comes to Miami every March. From pool parties to the city of Miami, the aura that is Ultra can be felt through this video. “Are you going to Ultra? Everyone in the US and abroad know what Ultra is,” Armin van Buuren expresses.

With all the controversy that surrounded EDM culture this year from the tragic death at Ultra to the city of Miami almost canceling the festival to the numerous drug overdoses that have plagued festivals recently, Final Kid emphasizes that this video and Ultra are about the music — plain and simple. The short film shows the community that surrounds electronic music as a collective unit that unties under the magic that is electronic music. The interviews from the artists display their transparency as humans and their inner connection between people and the music. This is what makes this video special. If you haven’t watched “United We Dance,” stream the video below and make sure to watch this one in 4k. If you haven’t experience that which is Ultra, head over and buy your tickets now as they just went on sale today.
