Review: Adam F has mixed up his styles over the years, from D&B to hip-hop and everything between, and here he returns in a big way with this new single. Huge vocals builds, tasty enveloping arpeggios, crunchy leads and some massive half-step drums all mesh together to make a simply epic tune that's bound to get heavy rotation all the way into summer. Add in mixes from Delta Heavy, Subscape, Michael Woods and an electro rebounce form Burns and this all makes for a very big release.
Review: Afrojack teams up with Dim Mak boss Steve Aoki for this supercharged slice of Dutch house. Riding a brutal and minimal chopped synth line complete with tropical drum hits, the pair smooth out the madness for the Bjork-like choruses from singer Alyssa Palmer before returning to the hypeness. Among the mixes, Gigamesh construct a whole new soft-rock/Italo disco backing for Miss Palmer's vocals while on-fire jungle revivalist and D&B don NuTone creates a beautifully sub-punishing mix that again makes great use of those original vocals.
Review: Dutch duo Bingo Players have forged a reputation as fearsome purveyors of cheeky, floor-friendly electro-house with a radio-friendly edge through a series of high profile singles and collaborations (most notably with Chocolate Puma). Here they present their first single since 2009, a filter-heavy main room stomper that benefits from a prominent, hooky vocal sample and some faithfully heavy electro house beats. Olav Basoki goes a little deeper on his remix, which adds a touch of swishy disco flavour to proceedings. For those who like it harder, there's an all-out scouse house assault from XNRG that should get plenty of plays at sweaty, shirts-off raves.
Review: PvD returned to his very best with last years 'Evolution' album, and with the more recent Remix edition. UK label partner 3Beat put full-focus on (one of the many LP highlight's) 'I Don't Deserve You' featuring Plump, with a whole host of new interpretations. The original lush piano (quite rightly) remains the linchpin to all the new cuts, as does the warming vocals of Plump. It's hard to choose from the mixes, Jerome Isma-Ae works it into his deep proggy sound, while the Italian stallion Giuseppe Ottaviani whips up a barrage of soaring melodies. Maor Levi & Bluestone also do the business in delivering power for the dance-floor. Plenty to get stuck into, successfully achieving the "tick every box" aim.
Review: The legend that is Paul Van Dyk has had a great year, with his 'Evolution' album reminding us what a great producer he is. One of the biggest tracks from that LP here gets some serious remix treatment curtsey of 3Beat. Adam Young's crossover vocals are of course the central point for all the interpretations, with man of the moment Austin Leeds coming up trumps on his proggy cut. Every box is ticked, with a banging Drum & Bass mix from Camo & Krooked, uplifting trance from Giuseppe Ottaviani, and an edgier peak time slammer from fast rising star Gary Proud.. See which one your feeling!
Review: Although 3Beat may not be the label of choice for many discerning trance heads, known for their more mainstream electro to hardcore output. However, open up your mind and ears for this one from a new name within the Avicii camp, Tom Hangs. There isn't much information out there on him as yet, and it all seems very mysterious but trust he is in good company. Quite fittingly 'Blessed' comes with this monstrous soaring riffs of Avicii's very own edit which will smash it in both house and trance sets.. The hottest producer in electronic music right now.. Turn it up!!
Review: Huge Euro-pop star Inna gets an extensive set of remixes on this new single, with Play & Win and Cahill Club both crafting funky-tech workers that can instantly set off any room, while British producer Kryder keeps the vocals to a minimum, instead working up a very cool Dutch house version. If Balearic vibes are more your thing, Odd and Ilario Estevez have got you more than covered.
Review: Sprightly and summery, Inna's "Love" is a balmy slice of funky tech-house which gets a release on 3 Beat, bolstered by a treasure trove of mixes. With the original available as an edit or an extended "club" rework, there's also eSquire's stripped-down heater, 7th Heaven's bass-heavy banger, as well as Dandeej's excellently chopped-up mix which constantly builds and drops for a real rollercoaster ride.

Review: Taken from her second and most recent album I Am The Club Rocker, electro singer Inna brings her Latin flavour on "Un Memento" - a charging, Balearic-tinged mainroom beauty that gets two huge club overhauls. Hi Def keep the silky chords but structure them around a cavalcade of builds and drops, while 7th Heaven go out on a trance tip by adding some charging and euphoric chords to their equally club-friendly revisit.
Review: In case you were wondering what all those street parties have been about over the past week, Sigma has released some new material, and good lordy is it top drawer. Put down those garland necklaces and that bottle of Patron and listen. One thing you should know - it's a remix of the Charlie Wilson tune of the same name (which in itself was sampled by the one and only Kanye West - which is the version used here, in case you're a fan of music trivia) and it's a big ol' bundle of dancefloor energy. Packing a serious punch under that ultra-recognisable piano loop thanks to retro breaks, this is hard, fast and fun D&B that'll bring dancefloors to destruction point. Get some!

Review: Now an established partnership, after huge singles including "Hello" and "Boys & Girls", Canadian electro band Dragonette join forces with producer Martin Solveig for this new single taken from Solveig's recent album "Smash". While their original employs a relatively simple mix of chanted vocals and skewed synth chords, remixes from Ziggy Stardust, Les Bros, Denzai Park and Thom Syma add a bigger, club-sized alternative set of mixes of this indie/dance hybrid.
