Review: The subject of intense discussion since early airings last December, Afrojack chose Ultra to really hammer this new anthem home and it's been on repeat ever since. "Air Guitar" is a dynamic stomper that builds from an infectious, stripped back rhythm to a deep, driving bassline to an outrageous, full-flavoured riff by way of a dreamy breakdown. A heady injection of instant chaos, Afrojack is on firing form right here.
Review: Hardwell had a pretty amazing 2012, growing out from under the wing of Tiesto and becoming a worldwide name in his own right. One of the biggest singles from the tail end of the year was this bomb 'Apollo' featuring the now infamous vocals of Amba Shepherd. Its got his signature big room house sound all over it, which with the soaring lead lines and smile inducing melodies lends itself to trance sets too. Spain's Vendetta label pick it up and give it another lease of life, reminding us what a tune it was. If you missed out the first time, get on it now!!
Review: Since announcing their retirement as a threesome, the superstar dance outfit Swedish House Mafia have arguably had their most successful period, with a number 1 single around the globe and mass selling new mix comp. In prep of going their separate ways they each continue to focus on their own labels and this stick of dynamite from Italian duo Nari & Milani was instantly snapped up by Steve Angello for his own Size Records, and now sees a re-release through Vandetta Spain. Speaker thrashing big room melodies that the trio would be proud of, it has been doing the damage the past couple of months.. so if you missed out the first time, jump on it now!
Review: Get your lighters out! "Centre Of The Universe" is set to have spines tingling and smoochers cuddling in every club, party and festival throughout the summer. Premiered at Ultra, and already a big fave with Tongy and the daytime radio set, Magnus Carlsson's vocals cut through with the right amount of sentimentality while the erstwhile Swedish House Mafiette tweaks his anthem dynamics for something that's euphoric without ever getting too over the top. Already massive.
