This slow new ballad by Norwegian pop artist ST. NIKLAS has almost moved me to tears. Majestic melodies gracefully glide across the singer’s vocal chords as he recounts the song. Minimalistic, synth based production only serves to punctuate these magical vocals. Definitely check this one out if you haven’t heard of the a

Italian dance music veteran Maurizio Colella – aka EDX – returns with what is guaranteed to be yet another chart-topping release to add his already impressive repertoire of hits as he unveils his enormous new single ‘Roadkill’ – out now via Spinnin’ Deep/Sirup Music.
Originally released back in 2007 by Dubfire, EDX first lent his hand to remix duties on ‘Roadkill’ that same year, turning the minimal techno record into a mammoth electro house remix that dominated Ibiza and received support from every major DJ on the island and indeed the globe. Nearly a decade later, EDX has chosen to test his production prowess by revisiting the fan-favourite, masterfully infusing the original with his sublime sound to provide a divine deep house edit that is set to continue his worldwide dance floor domination.

In celebration of the release, EDX gives insight into the importance of the song, “In 2007, Dubfire released his debut minimal techno record, ‘Roadkill’ and it’s a significant song in my career as I released a remix of it in 2008 that took over Ibiza and saw a ton of DJ support from Pete Tong, Armin Van Buuren, and Swedish House Mafia, to name a few. The song still brings back many good memories from that exciting era, so I decided to revitalize it with a fresh version that features my deeper, sexier style, about 10 years since its release. With the recent announcement of my Privilege Ibiza residency this summer, this new ‘Roadkill’ version couldn’t have come at a better time, and I can’t wait for you all to hear it on the dance floor.”
Last year saw EDX’s career reach unprecedented heights, with his remix of Sam Feldt’s ‘Show Me Love’ amassing over 60 million plays on SoundCloud alone, not to mention releasing a slew of club-ready cuts such as ‘Belong’ and ‘Revered’ that saw him scoop the award for #1 top charting artist on Beatport of 2015. With his weekly ‘NoXcuses’ radio show and podcast hitting the 1 million downloads mark, earlier this year saw the Swiss sensation bring the revered show and event brand of the same name together with Swiss label Enormous Tunes for a hugely successful 15-date bus tour across North America. Bowing to increasing demand for more ‘NoXcuses’ events in Europe, EDX has just announced his return to the white isle for what promises to be an incredible 10-date residency at the world-renowned Privilege Ibiza.
Gaining a reputation as one of the hardest working DJs around, with huge a stacked tour schedule and a host of new material set to be dropped over the coming months, it’s no surprise that EDX has earned himself recognition from fans and peers as an authority of the progressive house scene. Be sure to catch him on the road this summer and stay tuned for more updates via his social channels below.
Wow. My favorite producers, Illstrtd, Ekko, Sidetrack, and Kloake dropped their remixes to Camikaze’s latest record and they all bump. Drawing from Trap, Future Bass, and even a dash of DnB, the artists perfectly encapsulate the original’s vibe while adding their own flavor. Don’t sleep and buy the full versions here to support the artists!
R.LUM.R is back with another future beats and R&B hybrid and it’s phenomenal! “Frustrated” is a deep but real new single that shows off the up and comers musical ability. Similar to fellow upcoming soul / r&b songwriter dvsn, R.LUM.R frequently goes falsetto but doesn’t over do it. Beautiful music here ya’ll, do not sleep on this man! He’s bound to blow up soon enough, no doubt in my mind.
New York is full of incredible talent in all different fields of art; visual, audio and physical. Everyday a new artist arises and makes a name for himself, and Element is my new favorite producer out of the Big Apple. His latest release “Closer” came out last week and it really shows of the emerging musicians skillset; a unique sound design, versatile influences, and just how far he’s came. If you check out the rest of Element’s music there is a clear evolution in his style.
“Pretty Wicked” is a smooth new indie tune from the rising LA band Autumn In June. The track gives insight into the singers personal experience with the drug lifestyle. Check it out and see what you think.
Dannnggg DEMUR tares it up with this new song. “Traumatized” takes you on a four minute ride through a multitude of EDM genres. This is fit for EDM festivals and would be a crazy to hear live. The artwork above is a cool and pretty amusing commentary that adds to the artist’s concept. Looking forward to hearing where DEMUR takes his sound next.
This new remix of “Working For It” by ZHU, Skrillex, and THEY. packs a huge punch. It’s by the rising Australian producer Naderi and it carriers a huge sound worthy of the original tune. Press play and get your groove on.
