"Hello" (Cold Blue's Uplifting Remake) - Above & Beyond

Cold Blue smooths off the edges and adds a proper Trance drive to Above & Beyond's latest release, "Hello" in his latest upload. The complexity and warmth of A&B's production is well managed in this rework which pays particular respect to the past stylings of the trio, so as to supplement its feeling instead of changing it. The result is a marvelous piece of music that I prefer to the original. Look out for a possible remix package soon!

"Iris Sun & Moon" (Hyperbits Mash) - Above & Beyond vs. Audien [Free Download]

In his latest free download, Hyperbits (now a one person act after Rob left the group) combines the twinkling aura of Audien's summertime smash with the timeless sound of Richard Bedford's vocal collab with Above & Beyond. From the very start the overwhelming happiness from "Iris" drips in, soaking the slightly melancholy intro to "Sun & Moon" with its beaming rays of sunshine. Equip your library with one of the best "Sun & Moon" mashups the internet has to offer and grab the free download!

Preview: "King For A Day" - Above & Beyond

It's been a while since Above & Beyond debuted a new track ("Walter White" at ABGT 001), but it's hard to blame them. With one of the heaviest international touring schedules of any production collective, Tony, Jono, & Paavo hardly have time for the studio. Regardless of the long wait, their newest track (title unverified) made its debut at their pre-EDC pool party at Encore Las Vegas, followed by their main stage set at the actual festival and their headlining performance at Electric Forest the following week. The new track follows the unmistakable vocal Progressive sound of Group Therapy that has captured the minds of hundreds of thousands worldwide. While I believe that the vocalist on this track is the London based Alex Vargas based on recent statements from Tony, it sure does sound a lot like Richard Bedford though the former is more likely. The track takes a decidedly uplifting spin on "Walter White," and we'll be anxiously awaiting its high quality debut on ABGT. For now enjoy a rip of the new track from their set at Encore Dayclub - stay tuned for more info!

This is my final day,

I'm gonna go out smiling,

I'm king for a day

Track of the Day: "Satellite" (Mat Zo D&B Remix) - Oceanlab

Justine Suissa's firey tale of love and separation anxiety remains one of the absolute pinnacles of vocal Trance. The Sirens of the Sea classic has been warped into every mold imaginable with everyone from Seven Lions to its original producers Above & Beyond taking a bet on the remix roulette. Today I dug back in our archives in search of a chill mix to study to and started playing Mat Zo's liquid "DnB Mix of Love" that he put out back in December. To my surprise arguably the most powerful track off the mixtape and my favorite remix of this track to date hadn't been uploaded or even mentioned anywhere on the internet. The breaks in this are ethereal and suffocating, and it really showcases the side of Zo that we don't hear too much of these days. Enjoy!

My love is like footsteps in this snow, baby,
I follow you everywhere you go, baby.
The pain as light has come to wake you
But you will never realize
That I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby.

I follow the winds that bring the cold, baby,
I light a fire in your soul, baby.
The lightest touch of feathers falling
My love might be invisible
But I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.

Your singing satellite

You say a prayer
You say a prayer

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.
