Porter Robinson's last single from his forthcoming album "Worlds" is "Flicker". Once again, the American producer has kept his promise to focus on releasing beautiful music that isn't driven by a "bangin' drop". "Flicker" utilizes a sliced computer translator as vocals and huge, emotional synths that hit the listener with power. We're looking forward to what the album will bring to the table.
Elephante drops a solid new remix of "Gold Skies" by Sander van Doorn , Martin Garrix , and DVBBS . The track shows Elephante's classic sound once again, with glitched out vocals and highly electronic sounding synths on the drop. Another keeper from this consistent remixer.
Kygo switches up his style once again, following his own lead from his previous Coldplay remix. The young Norwegian's newest release, however, features The Weeknd's RnB style vocals. His recent signing to Sony Music Entertainment and the announcement of his upcoming international tour are indicators that times are changing for Kygo, and his music definitely represents that, not in terms production quality, which has always been high, but the diversity of his newer sounds.
Gorgon City's new "Unmissable" is is definitely unmissable. The deep house maestros manage to combine a hugely emotional and energetic top line with their signature deep, sultry bass line. Fresh of instant classic "Ready For Your Love", the duo has put together an incredibly exciting followup with this one.
In case you missed it, here's our choice for last week's track of the week.
Week of July 20th, 2014: Martin Garrix, Sander van Doorn, and DVBBS: huge names all associated with one track. Released in June, the original "Gold Skies" was an instant success with its massive progressive house sounds and festival vocals. Now, just over a month later, Miami based Eche Palante takes it down a notch, keeping the energy levels high, but giving it a completely new vibe. A deep and progressive hybrid, this remix deserves a lot more attention than it currently has. Eche Palante has entered it into the official "Gold Skies" remix competition, and we would not be surprised to see him win it. Regardless, the track takes our spot for track of the week.
TEEMID released this intoxicating remix a couple of months ago. The Frenchman's re-touch of "Love At First Sight" by Kylie Minogue features a deep and energetic drop with a progressive house style lead that compliments the track nicely. Truly beautiful vocals contribute to the experience as well.
Arston, who has been producing some impressive tracks in the past several months, drops his official remix of 3lau's "How You Love Me". The new progressive house track features an incredibly powerful dancing lead which gives the remix a massive amount of energy. In contrast, the emotional break differs in every respect, and gives the track a huge range of sounds.
Here is a great deep house remix of Walk this Way by KANT. This song takes some quality vocals and adds a great deep house vibe to it. This song is a jack of all trades, whether you are just sitting around at home or out with friends. The sharp cut-off of the vocals makes this one of the few recent catchy deep house songs. Enjoy!
