Swedish electro producer John Dahlbäck recently made “Comfortable” by Australia’s The Aston Shuffle into a heavy hitting complextro remix. Similar to his single “Panic,” Dahlbäck reverts back to his earlier ways with powerful breaks and a heavy tone to the remix. Be sure to check out the remix below and grab a copy when it releases on September 27th.
Back in June we introduced you to a guy starting to climb the ranks by the name of Apollo. The Ohio native also known as Will Seagrist – who recently signed with Nanobeats based in NYC – has an incredibly unique, melody-focused style that’s a breath of fresh air in the face of so many monotonous “festival-ready” tracks that artists seem to be throwing together lately. His entry in 3lau, Paris & Simo’s “Escape” remix contest is an awesome showcase of his attention to detail and classical roots. His combination of piano melodies and synths over a killer baseline is sure to stir up this remix contest, so be sure to give it a listen below – as well as other favorites from him – and follow the directions to vote.

After Feed Me said that he does not think DJ’ing is a true art form, people began to speculate whether this was the beginning of his good byes to the electronic world. Luckily for us, those speculations are not true (not yet anyways) and we’ll get to experience some more of the little green monster in a full album release. There are also rumors of an album release from his mainly Drum and Bass alter-ego Spor.
Kicking off the Feed Me release is “Rat Trap,” a slower rumbled bassline below a simple high melody. The track was first premiered on his BBC Radio 1 essential mix last year, so its been a long time coming for it to be released. You can pick up the full album, Calamari Tuesday, on October 14th, but can already pre-order it via iTunes.

Holy bejesus, if the newest track from Krewella doesn’t have a more appropriate title then I don’t know what else does. Using progressive synths into a dubstep/hardstyle/trap drop, they are able to create a track with massive amounts of energy meant to be heard live. The crew is known for their uptempo productions and although this won’t be included on their upcoming album, you can still grab it for free from their homepage. The Get Wet album will be released on September 24th.

Ex-dubstep sensation Skream has finally started to show evidence of his progression into his promised disco wave as stated earlier this year.
“Dubstep is just a name now. It doesn’t have a meaning any more and the movement is over. It’s like the end of a relationship but it’s ended on a high. I’ve done dubstep since I was 14 but there’s no way I’m going to be dictated to. I stopped because I’m not inspired by it any more.”
The release of his new single featuring Sam Frank, called “Rollercoaster,” contains heavy retro synths, signature Daft-Punk-esque vocoder ridden vocals, and other elements that make it a true “Disco” hit; something that Skream was undoubtedly hoping to go for in his first piece of work after his statement. Its still quite a while away until its official release on iTunes on October 27th, so be sure to check out and/or pre-order “Rollercoaster” below.
The dutch pair who put out “Miami” and revived Tiesto’s “Adagio for Strings,” also known as Blasterjaxx, are back at it with a powerful mixture of dutch and progressive house blended together in their single titled “Koala.” Released on Mixmash Records, “Koala” already has a handful of remixes under its belt, including remixes by Scotty Lee, Jonathan Pitch, and Onderkoffer. Be sure to check out the original and remixes below.
