Pretty much every time Swedish veteran John Dahlback releases a track it becomes even more apparent that he is one of the industry’s most underrated producers. Besides the support he receives from a lot of his fellow countrymen, its remarkable how little mainstream airtime this guy gets. Last year’s remix of Sneaky Sound System’s single “Big” was one of the best progressive house tracks I heard all year and it still makes almost everyone of my playlists. More recently he’s released “Escape” and “Life”, both synth tinged progressive house tracks much like the remix we have for you today. Keeping the original’s vocals pretty much intact, Dahlback’s take on “Stockholm” shows his uncanny ability to craft rhythmic high end chord patterns, which has come to characterize most of his productions. It’s not an anthem by any means but its catchy as hell and is definitely still worth a download and a listen, especially if you’re a fan of his recent projects. For my money I’ll still stick with his remix of “Big”, that ish still bangs so hard.
Dirty South comes out with a great remix that gets me all tingly inside. Some solid progressive stuff from him that you should probably just go ahead and download.
Kaskade is back with his new remix of Usher’s “Climax”. I love the transition from Usher to the drop, not your typical choice of vocal style for a house remix but Kaskade makes it work. Also be sure to check out his “Freaks of Nature” tour this summer which tickets are already on sale for.

After a more than successful showing at Miami Music Week, and more importantly the Main Stage of Ultra Music Festival mid-day on Saturday, Hardwell’s name has been popping up more and more every day. With several promising projects unveiled during his massive set at UMF including his upcoming single “Kontiki” and his label mate Dyro’s remix, a mash-up of Sydney Sampson’s recently uncovered “Get Low” with one of last year’s classics, “Sending My Love”, and a new edit of Knife Party’s gritty electro banger “Internet Friends”, the rising Dutch star has undoubtedly opened the door for a superb 2012 and a well deserved climb up the latter of the world’s best DJs. Today we give you a new club mix of Rihanna’s single “Where Have You Been”, which in typical Hardwell fashion, hits like a Mac-Truck. It has a sort of “Spaceman” sounding chord pattern through the breakdown leading into another massive low-end drop that we’ve come to expect from a producer as creative and talented as Hardwell in the increasingly popular Dutch-House genre of Electronic Dance Music. Honestly, I’m just counting down the days until “Kontiki” drops, that song is going to be HUGE. But expect to see even bigger things from this dude pretty soon, I’ve heard that he’s got a few more tricks up his sleeve for the next couple of months that may entail some pretty massive collaborations with some of the industry’s titans. Keep coming back to HDM as information will be posted as we receive it.
