"Rewind" - Emma Hewitt (Mikkas Remix)

From the producer other than Knife Party who officially remixed Porter Robinson’s “Unison,” the Great Dane Mikkas is back with a massive remix to veteran vocalist Emma Hewitt’s “Rewind." Big-room complextro is the name of Mikkas’ game, as he harmoniously implements discordant mechanical leads, melodic piano play, and diverse beat work to color a canvas that fosters an enhanced listener experience – simultaneous enjoyment and genuine producer appreciation. The skilled up-and-comer has already accrued collaborative remix jobs with two major players in the EDM realm, so there’s no telling what sort of opportunities lie ahead for the 26 year old. In the meantime, I’d personally love to see him collaborate with fellow countryman Faustix and his partner-in-crime ImanoS!

"These Days Are Ours" - Emma Hewitt (Antillas & Dankann Remix)

Emma Hewitt's debut album Burn the Sky Down showcases the songstress' breathtaking vocals, which seem to hit home and touch a soft spot in us all. 'These Days Are Ours' offers a new remix package, produced from the multi-talented Italian duo Antillas & Dankann. With a fusion of ambient pop and electronic music, you will inevitably be carried away and inspired with this track. In our recent interview with Emma, she said "These Days Are Ours" reminds her "of my teenage years, and the years I first moved out of home with my friends in Geelong, Australia.  I tend to be a very nostalgic person by nature, and this song takes me back to those times when it seemed anything was possible, and everything was new and exciting.  I really want to bring that feeling into now and experience it again like I did then. That one is almost like looking forwards and looking backwards simultaneously for me." Emma has a way in capturing a moment in time through her lyrics and unique tone that has landed the record on Beatport's top ten Trance charts!

EDM Lounge Interviews Emma Hewitt

Trance and Progressive House have given birth to an astonishingly refreshing new vocal movement, and artists like Emma Hewitt are at the forefront of this melodic revolution. Emma has seen enormous success worldwide with her collaborations with talent Dash Berlin, Cosmic Gate, and Armin van Buuren, which together have more than 20 million views on YouTube. She also regularly appears onstage alongside these artists, blasting out her sweet vocals live to the enormous sea of adoring EDM fans. So I thought I'd ask the Australian vocalist a few questions about her career, and how she sees the current state of Electronic Dance Music.  

"What effect do you think EDC, Electric Zoo, Ultra, and Sensation America has had on you and dance music in the US?"

I think these events have really been the catalyst for the scene blowing up in the U.S. the way it has lately. The events have drawn people's attention to dance music on a much larger scale and brought the music to the general public's attention. They have also provided the opportunity for so many international artists to create and consolidate a market and develop a following on U.S. soil.  These huge events have been such an incredibly positive thing for the industry not just in America, but all over the world.  The sheer size of these events and the production values have been a great thing for EDM fans as they are really getting an incredible SHOW from a multitude of great artists in one place.  For me personally, it has been an opportunity to perform on the bigger stages and introduce myself to people who are not necessarily familiar with my music and I love that challenge and opportunity.

"What's it like to work with some of the biggest names in EDM such as Cosmic Gate, Dash Berlin and Armin van Buuren?"

I have been extremely blessed to have the opportunity to work with such talented producers.  I always work on tracks based on how much I like the music, and all of these guys create sounds and music that inspire me. They are all great as people too.  I am touring a lot with the Cosmic Gate guys, and they are just such wonderful people as well as being amazing producers, I have so much fun hanging out with them!  The more time that goes by, the more inclined I am to only want to work with people I admire on a personal level as well as being great producers - for me it is just as much about the the experience of creating as it is the actual release, so the process needs to be enjoyable so I always appreciate working with down to earth, chilled-out people

"What inspired you to write 'Colours'?"

"Colours" was written about at the time of the passing of my Grandfather.  The song was primarily inspired by the transient nature of life as I was seeing it at the time and that vivid realization that all the things we take for granted are changing and evolving and ending and beginning with every second that passes.  I was inspired to put these thoughts down as a sort of tribute to the change that we often overlook...it was also really a tribute to every person I've known and to the moments that help define and shape us, eve if they are not the obvious ones...maybe when we look back on it all, it will be the tiny moments that hold the special significance for us?  We really wanted to capture this essence with the video, and Elliot Sellers was instrumental in bringing this to life.  I wanted to put the tiny moments up on a screen to shine a light on the significance they can hold if we choose to look at them in a certain way.  I liked the idea of looking at life as a river that flows...there is something uplifting and hopeful, yet also melancholic to me about this idea.
