Go Down - Artic & Densnar feat Xaline - A2 Records

Big brutal rawstyle beats here from one of the most ferocious acts on the scene, teaming up with the outstanding vocal talents of Xaline. Insane amounts of energy in the main breakdown, with the arp frantic melodies, before dropping with sheer raw power and drive.

Knowing We'll Be Here (KiNK Remix) - Daniel Avery - Phantasy Sound

Another wildcard entry, KiNK shows again how adept he is in balancing blissful warmth with the rougher techno edges. The former wins out here though, possibly more than anything heard before from the Bulgarian maestro. Rhythmically it doesn’t differ a whole lot from Avery’s original, though what it does add is that divine synth whistle, appearing out of nowhere to welcome the swell of a near trance symphony in the second half. Something like majestic. 

Turn Around (Âme Remix) - Sailor & I - Life and Death

Whispers in Berlin that its Innervisions crew had turned ‘trance’ had grown deafening, following some particularly euphoric performances at Mexico’s BPM Festival in January. Now we finally have proof in the form of this spectacular summer anthem Âme have turned in for the Life and Death stable. The original’s soulful singer/songwriter elements are adopted perfectly, wrapped around a twinkling, swirling cyclone of melody that peaks with an explosion of melancholic emotion. A definitive record that pushes the limits of what‘s defined as ‘progressive’ in 2014. 

Stone Cold - Callide & Intraspekt - The Zoooo Records

Woah! That’s noisy! Talk about heavy, hard-hitting drum, this one cuts the mustard! Grinding bass, reminiscent of the good old dancefloor d&b staple; the power tool! No other place for this than the dance, where we’re sure it’ll do some serious damage. Good call Crissy.
