In January and early February, many DJ/Producers locked themselves in their studios. This past week, the same studio projects were getting released for the upcoming Valentine’s Day Weekend. What a nice treat for us? We have gathered our favorite songs representing house, trance, and dubstep for you to enjoy.
Above & Beyond first played this gripping instrumental track in Hong Kong for Above & Beyond Group Therapy 300. The first detail you will notice about Distorted Truth is the beautiful melody. The key to this track is the simplicity. Released on Friday, February 8.
Above & Beyond have dialed their sound back and rediscovered their progressive trance roots. Where ABGT250 was an opportunity to dive into the world of hard trance, ABGT300 allowed Above & Beyond to experiment with a darker and underground progressive sound.
Above & Beyond have some of the best vocal and lyrical work in the industry. Their powerful emotion based songs have captured an entire generation’s hearts, but they have always had a strong instrumental catalog. Think of songs like Walter White, Mariana Trench, and Rocket Science. Their newest release has everything you can ask for from an instrumental. The full seven-minute version is a beautiful journey, listen now.
Marshmello’s first single of 2019 was a collaboration featuring Hindi lyrics, but his second release last Friday features many dubstep elements. SVDDEN Death and Marshmello have collaborated to create Sell Out.
Marshmello caught a lot of criticism from people who did not expect him to announce a dubstep track. His new track with SVDDEN DEATH matches songs on Mello’s tracklists, but a dubstep song does look out of place when compared next to his recent releases. Despite this criticism, it is a strong track from Mello Gang and you should be excited about the future.
GHOST VOICES (Lane 8 Remix)
Lane 8 remixed a Grammy nominee this past week. The Lane 8 Remix of Virtual Self Ghost Voices was officially available on February 12, 2019. Lane 8’s version has classic deep house vibes. The only complaint is from people expecting a heavy detail orientated track. Lane 8’s goal was to create a retro masterpiece. We couldn’t be more excited about this official remix.
The idea of the Virtual Self Project is to mimic songs from the past, but with up to date production techniques. The method and execution of Lane 8’s remix is similar to deep house selections from 20 years ago. Lay back and relax from a hectic day with Virtual Self – Ghost Voices (Lane 8 Remix).
LOVE ME LIKE YOU USED TO
Kaskade killed it with a Valentines themed slow dance release on February 8. Love Me Like You Used to is different than his recent releases. The slow dance energy is specifically for Valentine’s Day.
