This Monday, us Landlords feel that in light of the missed [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] post last week, its time to make up for that with an equally awesome [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] post for today’s Miscellaneous Mondays! Big releases this week to start up the month of October with very warm tracks from some of the biggest rising [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] producers of 2011. 1) Swedish [HOUSE] producer John Dahlback is killing it with a huge collaboration with Henrik B released back in July. “Senses” is more than just a “Hands-in-the-Air” track, with it’s Big-Room synths, and Trim Acid Goodness! Amazing productions from the pair and definitely worth a listen. 2) Yiruma’s 2001 original, “River Flows in You” gets a dizzying refix from the Swedish powerhouse that is Alesso. Exploding out of Sweden’s massive [HOUSE] scene last year with the three track EP on Joia, Alesso has come to gracefully outshine highly rated [HOUSE] icon’s in a bare year with his distinguished high-energy productions. I digress though. PREVIEW this banger! 3) Attention Tenants! Please give a warm welcome to the talented and beautiful Swedish [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] act that is Dinka (AKA Tamara Maria & Christian Hirt). The Queen of [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] released this single off of her best-selling album titled Tales of the Sun back in July. Packed with dangerously addicting vocals, and a progressive deep [HOUSE] sound, who says Euphoria can’t be a way of living? I say NAY to those that do! 4) Our next track is a DANCE-FLOOR ANNIHILATOR. The pair of producers Mysto & Pizzi have remixed yet another Summer Anthem, “Sunlight”. Originally produced by DJ Antoine featuring the soothing voice of Tom Dice, this refix maintains much of the melodic progression from the original, topped with a sun-splashed piano sound and catchy refrain similar to that of an Avicii production. 5) No other producer I know is as talented or capable as Laidback Luke when it comes to pushing out remixes. Back again with yet another banger of a remix, Patric La Funks original, “Time and Time Again” gets a nice “Trance 2.0” refix with it’s captivating vocals and uplifting synths. I know who has MY #1 vote for the Top100 DJs of 2011! Don’t forget that the rankings WILL be announced sometime with the next few weeks. Exciting stuff 6) And last, but never the least [as a bonus], we’ve decided to throw up a track from one of Electric Basement’s favourite [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] producers, Thomas Gold. Originally one of his most successful tracks produced back in 2010, Thomas Gold has re-released a rework of his hit single, “Marsch Marsch”. Synth Chords that reverberate throughout coupled with an aptly huge big-room drop of epic proportions have made this rework one of the most anticipated tracks of this frigid month of October! Enjoy the tracks we’ve posted Tenants! Keep that [HOUSE] rocking all night!
Welcome back Tenants from another weekend of late nights, heavy drinking, and excessive partying. Hope everyone’s weekend was as safe (but eventful) as ours here at Electric Basement. We’ve been super busy lately, and it’s great to finally be able to relax and post some awesome music. With winter just around the corner, our posting is going to get a lot more consistent now that we’ll be home a lot more often. Add us on Twitter and Facebook to keep in touch with us. All of us at Electric Basement love to hear from you Tenants! Any thoughts, opinions, or whatever you’d love to ask us is much appreciated… Anyways, without further ado, allow me to introduce to you, this weekends [OPEN HOUSE] Special guest; the young, the talented: AVICII.
Stockholm, Sweden native Tim Bergling (AKA Tom Hangs) is now one of the most successful and requested Producers to grace the EDM scene of 2011. Born September 9th, 1989; the young Swedish powerhouse has been stirring up a storm on dance floors all around the world with his signature vocal productions and melodic chord progressions! Named breakthrough artist of 2009 by the likes of Tiesto, Laidback Luke, and Bob Sinclair, the 22-year old has charted MANY singles on Beatports Top 100 National Charts including: “Seek Bromance”; “Blessed”; “Drowning”; and most recently with his latest Summer anthem, “Levels”, among others.
It’s been a HUGE year of growth for the young producer and it’s showing absolutely NO signs of slowing down anytime soon. With his monthly podcast “LE7ELS” topping almost every iTunes Top 10 Podcast Charts on a global scale this month, beating out the likes of “Tiesto’s Club Life” and even “BBC Radio 1”, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that our good friend Avicii is here to stay as the Rising King of [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE]. I’ve had the pleasure to see him spin live not once, but twice at Guvernment and Koolhaus and I have to say, “BEST LIVE-SET I’ve ever heard in my life.” He annihilated both nights with 3-hour sets packed full of “Avicii” goodness and then some. Expect some big remixes and bigger collaborations in the near future from the Rising King of [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE]; AVICII.
We’ve decided to throw into today’s [OPEN HOUSE] Special the Avicii, “LE7ELS” podcast along with a few classics and edits from the man himself that we believe really defines the Avicii sound; Powerful Buildups/Progressions and Melodic Synths. Enjoy todays [OPEN HOUSE] Special, and keep that [HOUSE] rocking Tenants!
Boy are we late with this album, but as I always say, “Better Late than NEVER!”. Wolfgang Gartner (AKA, Joey Youngman) dropped his bombshell of an album Weekend in America about a week ago. A HUGE production from a firm favourite of ours here at Electric Basement. 1) We’ll be posting two tracks from the album for our Tenants to preview, first of which will be, “The Way it Was”. A high Energy track with an extremely uplifting buildup, followed by ANOTHER buildup of epic proportions. Very Wolfgang Gartner-like. 2) Despite the major collaborations with [HIP-HOP] artists, Wolfgang Gartner’s massive sound is still the dominant driving force on this album, especially in his track titled, “The Champ”. Very fitting title, considering this Album (and song) may very well shoot the American producer to a comfortable #1 position on the Beatport [ELECTRO HOUSE] charts. This track gave off a very “Feed Me” like sound. Very enjoyable and definitely worth a listen (…or two) 3) Tiesto, you have done an amazing job showing the true colours of your versatility. It never ceases to amaze me how great of a producer this man is with his latest remix of Joker’s single, “Slaughter House”. Tiesto’s remix incorporates a bass kick with extremely addicting vocals, managing to bring this song to life with his signature sounds and vibes. 4) Say HELLO to my lil friend, DJ and Australian-based Producer Tommy Trash. The man gives, “Falling Out of Love” by EDX and Sarah McLeod a ride in his handy “Kangaroo Pouch”, slapping on some of that Australian dirt, and essentially revamping the Progressive original into a much Grittier, Electro-House beat. The track is a definite must have for anyone looking for a quick Pick-Me Up. 5) Dada Life pretty much devoured David Guetta’s single of ALL and ANY of it’s “Mainstream” vibe and shit out the glory that is their remix to, “Little Bad Girl” (Guerilla Fart #13). The Swedish duo is back to expand their already HUGE remix Discography with this killer edit of the commercialized yet catchy original. 6) Every now and then, us Landlords at Electric Basement find a new Listing and like to show it off to the world. It’s with great pleasure, that we’d love to introduce you to GooseFlesh and his single “Combo Fix”. This song wastes very little time with its Melodic Arpeggios and full force Electro Synths. This beat will have you hip thrusting in your chair TILL YOU DIE. Definite banger for all your [ELECTRO HOUSE] junk-heads. Enjoy the [ELECTRO HOUSE] post, and keep that [HOUSE] rocking!
