‘I Want You’ To Listen To This Week’s New Music Because It Surely Will Not ‘Let You Down’ | Fresh Music Friday

by Fresh Music Freaks Staff

Ultra – ‘Free (Talla 2XLC & Para X Remix)’

The massive trance classic ‘Free’ by Ultra was released back in 2000. Now, Talla 2XLC and his partner in crime Para X have remixed ‘Free’ in the best possible fashion, ready for the big uplifting trance sets released on Technoclub Retro. Techy groovy beats, playful percussion, bouncy basslines, thumping beats and great drive with two very solid breakdowns with the main hair raising melody and the well-known spoken vocal sample. Tech-trance and great uplifting vibes in one explosive version let you feel ‘Free’ to enjoy good times on Technoclub Retro.

Chicane – ‘Make You Stay (Back Pedal Brakes Remixes)’

Experimenting with a variety of musical styles, Chicane provides two new mixes of his original ‘Make You Stay’. Entering a vast sonic environment in the Widescreen Remix, the original is transformed and brims with texture and grace. Moving into the Big Room Remix, heavy percussion and a hard-hitting bassline are juxtaposed by majestic synths and soaring vocals. This remix pack demonstrates his endless production abilities, as he allows his fans further into the depths of his masterful mind.

ReOrder x Jordan Tobias pres. Crowd+Ctrl – High (feat. Ben Thrills)’

Entering a brooding realm, ReOrder and Jordan Tobias deliver a new gem under their Crowd+Ctrl moniker called ‘High’ featuring Ben Thrills. Juxtaposing a deep bassline with soaring vocals, this dancefloor-ready cut crafts a mysterious sonic environment, which will keep listeners coming back for more.

Rub!k – ‘Air’

Crafting a heavy-hitting trance masterpiece, Rub!k returns to the A State Of Trance label with ‘Air’. Blending room-filling synth stabs with dramatic percussion, this head-turning creation has all the hallmarks of a festival anthem, and further demonstrates Rub!k’s emphatic production prowess.

Talla 2XLC & Yakooza – ‘City 2 City (Shadym Remix)’

The unstoppable upcoming Shadym has unleashed his own excellent version of ‘City 2 City’ which packs rough relentless heavy kicks, raw moody basslines and distorted vocal samples. An incredible, long breakdown that unleashes that threatening fearful dark hook leading to his ultra-tight earth shaking climax that adds some cool trancy synths to make it very accessible for trance audiences as well.

Cosmic Gate x Diana Miro – ‘Blame (Pavel Khvaleev Remix)’

Through his remix, Pavel Khvaleev delivered a masterclass in contrast. He channels the original version of Cosmic Gate’sBlame’s more subterranean tones, daring — if anything — to take their sonics that much further into the depths. Come the drop though, and through pad and chord he brings degrees of warmth and magnetism to Diana Miro’s words. Brightening it (albeit momentarily) with melody, it brings greater meaning (and relatable empathy) to her song.

Alan Fitzpatrick – ‘A Call Out For Love (feat. LOWES)’

UK techno legend Alan Fitzpatrick gears up for the release of his first album in over a decade, ‘Machine Therapy’, out November 12 on Anjunadeep. The fourth single to drop from the new album is ‘A Call Out for Love (feat. LOWES)’. A brooding melodic house track, ‘A Call Out For Love’ weaves a sweeping arpeggiator with the soaring vocals of the Manchester band’s lead vocalist, Evie Plumb.

Eco – ‘Let You Down’

If there’s one element no Eco track’s ever been short of, it’s mood, and ‘Let You Downs not about to become the exception! If anything Marcello upticks that aspect again, using a thumping but decidedly progressive chassis to direct intricately atmospheric layers of sound towards cooler clubfloors. Its indie-rock-ish vocal, subtlest of pianos trims, (far more foreground) guitar elements, pin-sharp percussion and more sombre synths all assemble to bring it a draw-you-in appeal. 

Black Caviar – ‘Thrill Seeker’

Grammy-nominated DJ-producer Black Caviar debut on iconic dance music label Nervous Records with new single ‘Thrill Seeker’. Combining jackin’ house beats with seductive French vocals, ‘Thrill Seeker’ is a slick house bomb ready to detonate on the dancefloor.

Mild Minds – ‘Haunted’

“I think we had all spent a part of 2020 contemplating a lot about our own lives, while feeling a general sense of darkness looming over whether we’d be losing loved ones, or not. For a lot of us we did. The heaviness of it all led me to explore more melancholic themes in my music. I found myself breaking down all of the shades that might be associated with melancholy; exploring death, loss, rebirth, and the associated beauty. This ultimately led me to wanting to use flowers on the artwork, being something that both dies and blooms again each year. At the same time I was re-learning piano, or even in a way properly learning piano. It was such a rush to be feeling the music through touch and finding an ability to speak through it. I found myself playing a set of similar chords over and over through the first half of the year; verses, choruses, outros. Slowly but surely, this song formed from a combination of those. This was immediately one of my favorite tracks I’ve ever written.”

PitBull – ‘I Know You Want Me (Helion Remix)’

In honor of Ultra Records 25th anniversary, Mr. 305 himself is checking in for the remix. Ultra Records continues their celebrations with the release of Pitbull’s international smash ‘I Know You Want Me’ as remixed by Sweden’s Helion.

An unexpected collaboration, ‘Runaway’ is the product of pandemic-time creativity and mutual respect of each other’s craft with a hooky melody and message that transcends any border.

Jan Blomqvist x Bloom Twins – ‘High On Beat (Sian Remix)’

Deep within a rolling bassline, you’ll find Sian’s remix of ‘High On Beat’, drawing a line from the recesses of techno and emerging into deep house, triumphantly transforming the original track created by Bloom Twins and Jan Blomqvist. This is for the dark of the night, as temptations draw near and the beat increases in both volume and soul.

Frank Zummo – ‘On My Mind (feat. Grabbitz)’

Known most prominently as the drummer in Sum 41 since 2016, Frank Zummo has spent 2021 bringing his extensive rock and drumming expertise to dance music. The latest step in this crossover is the release of ‘On My Mind’ featuring Grabbitz, which marks Zummo’s sixth release on Jauz’s Bite This! label this year. ‘On My Mind’ shows Frank on drums, with co-production from FourNames and Grabbitz, as Grabbitz’s vocals tell an emotional story of having a lost lover on your mind. The accompanying music video gives fans a look into what Zummo’s new solo drumming act would look like.

NightNight – ‘Maybe It’s Too Late’

“When writing this, my mind was really fixated on the long legacy of artists who managed to make tragic music danceable. The whole album was at one point titled ‘Maybe It’s Too Late’ because, at the time, I believed that. Maybe it was too late for a particular relationship, for my own redemption, for the world we live in. Hopefully, I was wrong.”

Husko – ‘Feel The Heat’

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen – but if you’re fly enough to ‘Feel The Heat’, you’ve got a hot one on your hands.
