Le’ts grab ‘Ghost’ Here

“Always try to create the music you want to create and don’t care too much about what other people say about your music. If it’s something that you are proud of that’s the only thing that matters, because you created it.”  (Julian Jordan).

About Julian Jordan:

From one-to-watch to leader of the pack, Julian Jordan’s rapid ascent through the dance music world has been something to behold. It’s no surprise given the fresh quality of his productions, which always surprise and delight in equal measures. Not beholden to tired formulas or following the latest trend, he instead paves his own way with innovative rhythms, atypical riffs and endlessly inventive production.

 

Having made his name with a slew of anthems on scene-leading labels like Spinnin’ Records, DOORN Records and Revealed Recordings, he has now made great strides with his own label GOLDKID (Records). Increasingly the place for his own output, he has shown great diversity with his first few releases on the label, covering peak-time anthems and electronic pop. Then there was also the matter of his collaboration with Martin Garrix as part of his ADE 7 tracks in 7 days giveaway, the fierce electro of Welcome, which has accrued 15 million streams to date. All this lead to a well-deserved nomination for Best Dutch Act at the MTV EMAs in 2016.

 

On the DJ front, he joined the likes of Garrix and Calvin Harris in holding a monthly residency at Las Vegas’ prestigious Omnia, while he’s a regular at world-leading festivals like Tomorrowland and Electric Daisy Carnival. Reaching further afield, he has also dipped into the world of fashion, launching his own capsule collection with Chasin‘ to great acclaim.

GAI BARONE -‘IN THE MIX 006 – PROGRESSIVE SESSIONS’

30 months on from Bonzai’s first (Airwave-helmed) ‘Progressive Sessions’, Belgium’s finest sure-footedly arrive at their sixth ‘In The Mix’. Coincidence or otherwise, that’s the same timeframe in which its helmsman Gai Barone has marched from respected dark sonic matter merchant to lightning rod for the next coming of Deep.

Making professional strides (“few gained more career ground in 2017” considered DJ Mag last month) through tracks like ‘Shiny’ and ‘There’s A Lady’, his DJ performances have become evermore a clubbing-year essential.

 

With a zeitgeist-like timing, Bonzai have handed the I.T.M. mix-reins to this electronic music savant. The Italian’s first solo-mixed release, it puts his singular take on electronic music – one more complex and meticulous in character – into tack-sharp focus.

Be you trance, progressive or house, if the name ‘Gai Barone’ didn’t pass your lips in 2017, well better bet it will this year! Why? Well, foremost, his intrinsic sound is at a tipping point in 2018.

“From the top down, everyone’s saying it… says the Italian. “This will be the year of Deep. You only have to look at the direction of arena stages, club line-ups, label output, radio playlists, etc to see where that’s coming from. It’s just one of the reasons I’m so thrilled to be bringing this release in the earliest months of the most promising of electronic music years.”

Barone ascension has come with many benefits, not least establishing him as a tastemaker/barometer of all matters deep. The Go-To Gai (if you will!) for producers wishing to test the mettle of their latest wares, it has given Barone’s unparalleled pick of new material for the album.

His mix criterion is simple: “music of substance, not simplicity. Some find it easier to corral the music I play into the ‘deep trance’ bracket, which I do understand. We live in a world of classification. I do feel there’s significantly more range to it though. Barone tends to find adjectives rather than genres/sub genres most useful when summing his sound. “Moving”, “exacting” “intricate”, “atmospheric” – these are a few of the words he uses to describe what happens throughout ‘006’s runtime. “Less predictable” is another. “You’re not going to hear one harmonic trancer or deep-prog number after another, after another here. The mixes are designed as end-to-end listens. What happens in between is not always going to be what’s expected”.

His “substance not simplicity” mandate rings true throughout Part 1. Gai’s trademark ‘portrait-style’ compiling (each track at once standing out, yet working coherently in the album’s framework) delivers Kymatik’s ‘Knights of the Jaguar’ channeling ‘La Bataeu Ivre, the chugging ‘Inversion’ from Chris Cargo, TR20’s hardier ‘Perception Management’ and the cooler frisson of ‘Behind’ from newcomers Revolutionary Blocks. The mix concludes with Andromedha’s revision of York & Ramon (Hardfloor) Zenker’s ‘China Girl’.

His own music naturally plays a key role in the threading of both mixes. New cuts ‘Tanita’ and ‘Cantica’ both debuts within the first half. ‘Something Between Us’ and ‘The Bloop’ meanwhile etch waypoints in the second. Interlaced between are Oovation’s synth-warping ‘Solar’, ‘The Passenger’ from Montenegro’s AudioStorm, Yuriy From Russia’s elegiac ‘Black Lagoon’ and the drop-side intensity of ‘Dust of Light’ c/o Mark Found. The release plays out with the epic-in-scope, first time teaming of Solarstone & John 00 Fleming with ‘Hemispheres’

OUT NOW: MAOR LEVI – JUNO

The inspiration for this track comes from a place far away… Maor Levi “A lot of people don’t know, but I’m a huge fan of everything Space, I’m sure some of my fans figured it out with previous titles of my tracks, Juno was born during the recent SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch that occurred above the Los Angeles skies. Funnily enough, since there’s no Atmosphere in space there’s no way for sound to travel, which makes it completely silent, I decided to express my excitement and fascination to Space and our gigantic universe with music, I’m proud of this record and hoping it’ll give people this balearic feeling I’ve had while making it.”

Listen to Maor Levi- Juno

The highly-anticipated follow-up to ‘Aurora’, ‘JUNO’ turns the dancefloor into a raver-infested pit. Spiked with crazily infectious basslines and enthralling melodies, this Maor Levi production works its magic in the late hours of the night and makes you give it your all until the sun rises.

FEENIXPAWL TEAM WITH HARLEY KNOX AND ARIANA AND THE ROSE FOR LOVELY POP-DANCE ANTHEM: ‘BONES’

2018 has only just begun, but Feenixpawl are already taking steps to ensure that the new year will become one of their best yet. In tandem with Eclypse regular Harley Knox and New York native Ariana and the Rose, the Australian hotshots present ‘Bones’, a truly tremendous song that will no doubt stake its claim as one of 2018’s most infectious pop-dance crossover anthems.

Listen to Feenixpawl & Harley Knox feat. Ariana and the Rose – Bones

Starting off with alluring rhythms and a shimmering atmosphere, ‘Bones’ has ‘one-of-a-kind’ written all over it. Flirting with pop through Ariana and the Rose’s leading vocals without losing track of its dance music identity, this brilliant production radiates feel-good vibes from start to finish and supplies fans with a genuine mood lifter sure to be included in the world’s most popular playlists.

Feenixpawl:“After Harley won the remix competition for our single ‘Ghosts’ we knew we wanted to collaborate with him. We are so happy with the outcome, as Bones is one of our favourite tracks to date. Being able to work with Ariana and the Rose was also a thrill – her unique vocal style helped us create a track we feel is really special. We’re so in love with this track and so happy to finally unleash it on the world.”

Ariana and the Rose:“I’m so excited to be collaborating with Feenixpawl and Harley Knox on Bones! The lyrics of the song really resonated with me and I’m a huge fan of both of their production, so joining together on this felt like a natural fit. I hope the track brings a bit of summer vibes wherever you are in the world”

Since their 2012 single ‘In My Mind’ picked up a Grammy nomination and got championed by Pete Tong himself as his Essential New Tune, Feenixpawl have established themselves as two of Australia’s most prominent export products. With numerous world tours, over 100 million streams, a plethora of awards and remixes for the likes of Rihanna, Kaskade, NERVO, Nicky Romero and Jess Glynne under their belt, they have secured themselves a spot alongside electronic music’s most prominent tastemakers and the necessary know-how to keep delivering the very best on every occasion, as they did with ‘Bones’ today.

 

D’Julz presents ‘Houdini remixes’ on Bass Culture

The 2015 release gets a fresh lick of paint from the legendary DJ Skull, Sebo K, Henrik Bergqvist and Romanian artist MP.
Released 23rd February on Digital, out now on Vinyl
A1. Houdini (DJ Skull Remix)
A2. Serendipity (Sebo K Remix)
B1. Serendipity (MP Remix)
B2. Waiting 4 Visa (Bergqvist) Remix

It’s time for the next release on long-running Paris label Bass Culture and owner D’Julz has invited a crack team of talented individuals to deliver the magic to this latest instalment in the label’s release schedule. This extra special remix package features contributions from the legendary DJ Skull, along with Sebo K, Henrik Bergqvist and Romanian MP. The bossman’s own 2015 EP ‘Houdini’ is the subject of this exquisite bunch of reworks, giving the whole release a fresh lick of paint from a group of artists handpicked by D’Julz to get to work on his productions.

The title track ‘Houdini’ is first in line, with the mighty DJ Skull on remix duty. The Chi-town legend has been a favourite of D’Julz since the early nineties when he was releasing on labels such as Djax-Up-Beats. The funk-imbued workout he creates from the original production is superb and a testament to someone who has been involved in music for three decades and still going strong.

Mixmag have premiered Sebo K’s remix of Serendipity, listen here.

Keeping DJ Skull’s remix company on the A-side is Sebo K with his take on ‘Serendipity’. Following on from his outstanding EP ‘Brock Wild’, Sebo returns to Bass Culture with another taught dance floor cut, full of swing and groove, pushed along with a strong, insistent energy.

On the flipside the deep sultry flavours continue to bubble up. Two more dynamic artists bring their unique touch to Bass Culture and the first is the Romanian wonderkid MP (Mihai Popescu), who has previously released on the sub-label Bass Culture Limited. His reinterpretation of ‘Serendipity’ is deep, nuanced and quirky with a simmering atmosphere throughout.

Last but certainly not least is the Swedish maestro Henrik Bergqvist. ‘Waiting 4 Visa’gets a kick in its step, with mysterious cosmic FX layered over a mesmerising bassline and a collection of bleeps and chirps that really bring the remix to life.
