London producer Feed Me (otherwise known as Spor) has shared his full nine-minute remix of Deadmau5's hit track 'Strobe'.
While paying tribute to the original, progressive offering through long emotive sections and recognisable synthwork, Feed Me also ramps up the track with stomping beats, bringing 'Strobe' fully up-to-date for the 2016 dancefloor.
Feed Me's version is part of a four-track 'Strobe' remix package celebrating the 100th release of Deadmau5's mau5trap label. Dropping 23rd September, the EP also features Lane 8, ATTLAS, and Com Truise.
Deadmau5 premiered a brand new, unreleased progressive house track at Ultra Music Festival in Singapore this week — all nine minutes of it!
The Canadian is currently on tour with Ultra, having visited Japan and Croatia already, so where better to show off a few extra special new productions.
You can stream the track in full here.
And check out the full set and tracklist below.
“I don’t judge music by genre. I listen to techno, I listen to classical, I listen to everything. And I try to only listen to good music and push good music – doesn’t matter about the genre. There’s good and there’s bad. That’s it.” Gai Barone folds his hands and laughs softly at his decisive statement.
A Maltese duo who juggle the emotive thrills of trance with their love for chillout vibes, Cyprian Cassar and Joven Grech have been working together as Tenishia for over a decade, taking their career to the next level when they were signed a few years ago by Armada Music. They subsequently released their records across several of its sub-labels like Coldharbour and A State Of Trance.
“The past year for us has been the best year of our career,” says Grech. “We really have been so fortunate to have played in so many countries and at some of the world's best festivals. The highlight was probably playing Tomorrowland for the third time in four years.”
Big on the agenda this year has been the release of two particularly successful vocal singles, ‘Don’t Give Up’ in June as well as the smash hit ‘Don’t Let Go’ that dropped just before the Top 100 results were released.
Otherwise, they say, they’re preparing the third edition of their ‘Stoney Roads’ chillout album for release next year, as well as prepping some high-profile collaborations. They also point to particularly strong growth across Asia over the past year.
“Asia has been crazy for us, our fans are awesome and we love being out there. MTV have even given us our own show that is broadcast in eight different countries! We’re really excited to see what 2016 brings.”
DIYnamic Outdoor is set to dominate a brand-new and picturesque outdoor dance space this summer, following last year's sell-out run on the White Isle at Destino.
Every Tuesday from 16th June till 29th September, DIYnamic will throw its much-loved DIYnamic Outdoor knees-up at Beachouse in Playa d’en Bossa, for 16 parties full of sunshine, smiles and quality deep house grooves.
Stimming is an artist looking to challenge the norm, pushing boundaries with his productions and his “live” sets. Part of Solomun’s DIYnamic crew, he's made his fair share of modern dancefloor bombs for Freerange, Buzzin' Fly, Pampa and Green — everything from the alternately bleepy and soulful 'Radar' alongside H.O.S.H to the lush, abstract house of 'China Tree'.
Diynamic is both a label and a family. Boasting a catalogue of carefully-crafted releases and a cool, low-key brand aesthetic, it’s no surprise that Solomun’s ubiquitous imprint has once again triumphed in Ibiza, largely because it embodies, well, him. Never has Diynamic’s warm and fuzzy label philosophy shone brighter — or more magnanimously — than at the brand’s final outdoor party at Destino in September, despite the inclement weather that hammers the majority of the island’s infamous closing fiestas.
Grum’s latest single 'Tears' has drawn its fair share of attention from the key players. Both Pete Tong and Annie Mac showcased it on their respective Radio 1 radio shows, though with its dizzyingly unique appeal, it’s not difficult to understand why.
Danny Avila is a DJ who proves that age really is just a number. Having first whet his appetite for dance music in Marbella, at the club his father's friends owned, it wasn't until he suffered a wakeboarding accident aged 14 that he truly had time to sit down and learn his craft.
Now, having racked up close to 80k Instagram followers, he treks relentlessly round the world’s biggest clubs, and the 20-year old explains he's had “a year of innovations and lots of moments of joy! I feel blessed to have had the chance to visit so many countries.”
It was sneaking into a Fedde Le Grande show in ‘09 that made him understand how to really ‘kill it’ in a club, and at that point Danny upped sticks to Madrid.
One of the plaudits he’s earned since is the title of Hakkasan's youngest-ever resident, as well as gaining residencies in Las Vegas and Pacha Barcelona, and this is Danny’s first entry into the Top 100.
“Nothing is more nourishing than to celebrate along with your fans and to feel the rush that comes back from their energy onto the stage,” he gushes. “It’s been the most diverse year of my career so far, with my whole MORE concept coming to life where I take people on a journey through a vast variety of electronic music.”
EDM takes many of its cues from the French touch electro sound that preceded it, so the only surprise in Tchami's dramatic new-entry position this year is that there aren't more like him.
Bloody Beetroots and Germany's Boys Noize might have represented Gallic-inspired noise in this poll over the years and subsequently dropped out, however it's as part of EDM's new wave that this hip Parisian finds himself rubbing shoulders with the big guns.
One of the few managing to straddle a line between mainstream success and underground credibility, Tchami has been spotted dropping everything from EDM bangers to silkier, bass-inflected house beats on gargantuan festival stages as well as the cooler, more demure rooms of clubland in 2015.
On the one hand acknowledged as a pioneer of the future house sound — to the point where comparisons between this summer's 'After Life' and Oliver Heldens' breakthrough tune 'Gecko' have raised one or two eyebrows — he also sits comfortably alongside trap/EDM and brostep names such as DJ Snake and Nero.
Reaching No.2 in the UK charts earlier this year with 'Promesses', he's already proved a darling of Britain's house-loving public and his After Life tour has just visited the US.
A compatriot of fellow Frenchmen Madeon and Martin Solveig (both notable absences in the poll this year), Tchami — as the namesake of his associated genre suggests — really does appear to be the future. Not just for house, but EDM as a whole.
