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

"Pink Skye" (Toby Hedges Remix) - Ronski Speed & Syntrobic ft. Renee Stahl

Toby Hedges has really set the bar high with this new remix of "Pink Skye." While listening to Above & Beyond's Group Therapy, I was mesmerized by this track and instantly had to search for the tracklist. "Pink Skye" features samples of the breathtaking and haunting vocals performed by Renee Stahl and the remix combines some old school Trance mixed with new age club beats to make one of the best Anjunabeats remixes in a while. This remix leaves me with uplifted spirits and was a much-needed stress reliever for me during finals - grab it on its release May 20th!

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.

"Inception" (Original Mix) - Jaytech

If you don't know James Cayzer, better know as Jaytech, then now is the time you got acquainted. Known for hyping up the crowd and warming up for big name producers, Jaytech is now making a name of his own and it's easy to understand why. In the past few months he's transitioned to the big-room sound and is hot off the release of some super groovy tracks. Just pushed out on Anjunabeats last week is the Inception/Wipeout EP. You can peep last week's post for his mix for Anjunabeats Worldwide 326 to listen to "Wipeout," as the new track starts out the amazing podcast. But what was missing from the show was his other new song, "Inception." Just like the movie, this track blew my mind! When it first started off, it sounded like a Madeon track on steroids, but then I came to terms with reality-- this is classic Jaytech style. Although labeled Trance by Beatport, "Inception" blends funky progressive house with new age groovy trance and a nice, smooth synth. At 129 BPM, this track will make you bounce, so hold on to your seats!

Out now on Beatport!

Anjunabeats Worldwide 326 - Jaytech 

Sometimes Group Therapy just isn't enough for us to get our weekly Anjuna-fix so we tune into Worldwide. This week Australian prodigy Jaytech takes us through the lush sounds of modern dance music, varying from peak anthems to slower, melodic drifts that are waiting to be blasted from the world's biggest soundsystems. Starting out the mix with his own "Wipeout," Jaytech pushes us forward into some of the best new Progressive tracks to land on earth. The entire mix is remarkably fluid which is due entirely to his nice, tight transitions that make Electro beats and the more ambient grooves melt together. Grab the free download and enjoy!
