Size In The Park & The...

September 22 was a date I’d circled on my calendar the second I caught a glimpse of Steve Angello’s management team posted a clever little image featuring the Size Matters logo in Central Park with the aforementioned date listed alongside the artists and the iconic venue. With news of the separation of the greatest Electronic Dance Music trio in existence to date fresh in our minds, I was immediately intrigued to see what stops Angello would pull out on his [...]

John Dahlback – Sing...

New Progressive House

For as long as HandsDownMusic has been in existence I’ve preached that Swedish producer John Dahlback is one of the most underrated talents in the electronic music world. I don’t know what it is, maybe his sound doesn’t translate well to bigger festival crowds or maybe he just doesn’t enjoy making the trip over seas to play American festivals or maybe I’m just looking at the wrong ones, but whatever it is I don’t seem to see [...]

Wolfgang Gartner – Love...

New Electro House

American dj/producer Wolfgang Gartner just dropped his second two song EP package of recent months and, yet again, his efforts have resulted in the affirmation of his unique aptitude toward refreshing electro outfitted stylings. The ‘Love and War EP’ sees Gartner return to his roots in a fantastic pair of offerings featuring the haunting and ominous style that we’ve all come know and love. ‘Love and War’ is an energetic house-y track, and an easier listen, [...]

Avicii – Silhouettes ...

New Progressive House

Somehow At Night Management has managed to okay a massive remix package for Avicii’s super-hit, ‘Silhouettes’, without causing a tidal wave of uproar and conversation about the young and increasingly powerful Swede. The package features edits by EDX, Lazy Rich and new-comer Syn Cole, who was just recently signed to Avicii’s Le7els record label. Although Cole stays “inside the box”, so to speak, on his version of the melodic classic, Swiss mogul EDX and Vancouver’s own [...]

Bob Marley & The Wailers ...

New Progressive House

It’s not everyday that one of the most iconic songs of a generation gets a totally modern reworking from one of the EDM’s most prominent veterans, but luckily, today seems to be one of those rare occasions. Like this song’s shelf life, Benassi’s career has spanned decades, so who better to churn out a remix of this magnitude than one of electro and house music’s perennial heavyweights. I didn’t really know what to expect from the [...]

Jed Harper, Dzeko &...

New Progressive House

Last week we posted Dzeko & Torres’ latest offering, their official remix of Chuckie’s instant classic, ‘Who Is Ready To Jump‘. The up and coming Toronto based duo has already proven their ability to craft high energy progressive house tunes but are back at it again with their latest project, ‘Diamond Ring’. Set to be released on August 6 via Provoke Records, the original mix will be joined by a well-rounded remix done by none other [...]

Dog Blood – Next Order ...

New Techy Acid House

Shit just got real. German pioneer, Boys Noize, and acclaimed American Dubstep tycoon, Skrillex, have joined forces to create one of the most interesting production combination I’ve seen in some time. Both have very recognizably aggressive styles and both have a knack for a certain uniqueness in their music, which has been one common reason for both of their rises in modern EDM. The result of this union is a high-speed pounding two song [...]

John Dahlback – Comet

http://youtu.be/nNSRTofc6_A

New Progressive House

Honestly, at this point it is becoming fairly obvious that Swedish EDM veteran John Dahlback can do no wrong. Seriously, it’s like the Hand of God is guiding every chord he hits in anticipation of creating his next massive banger. ‘Life’, ‘One Last Ride’, ‘Rebels’, ‘Escape’ and ‘Start Loving You’ represent just a portion of his impressive studio releases, which have come over the past two years of his lengthy decade-spanning career, and the incredible versatility [...]

Example – Say Nothing ...

New Progressive House

The short lived career of rising Dutch talent and HDM favorite Nick Van De Corput, better known as Hardwell, has seen the young Netherlands native reach the point of relative super-stardom. Over the past year he and his label imprint, Revealed Recordings, have proven to be two of the industry’s most reliable sources of unique and increasingly powerful studio offerings as well as promising up-and-coming artists. Today, the man himself joins forces with one of his label’s most [...]
