Track of the Day: "Faster Than Light" - Far Too Loud

Ever since they stepped onto the field, Far Too Loud has been known for their throttling, high energy productions. The latest EP "Faster Than Light" holds true to their roots while adding another level of technicality to their arrangements. Oliver Cash, the man behind Far Too Loud, has a rare way of taking the usual electro-house wobbles and squeals and arranging them in a manner that is technical and unusual. The song kicks off with an ominous vocal clip that leads into a frenzied build with some whining synths and well-used filters. The verses have pounding rhythms which are tightly layered to keep the tempo moving at a break-neck pace - but this is just the warm up. The song title can be taken literally as the interlude carries a surprise. Instead of following traditional song structure and going back to the chorus, the tempo changes to double time and this track turns into an unrestrained drumstep thumper. The production quality is close to flawless, as even the most distorted and chaotic elements of the track rip through the mix in an incredibly clear manner. Pick up the EP today!

Track of the Day: "Sacramentum" (Andrew Rayel Aether Mix)

Whether you want to admit it or not, the EDM community is experiencing an existential crisis. As electronic music has become more and more popular in the US, there has been a noticeable lack of desire for innovation among many producers. Luckily, we have people like Andrew Rayel to fight against the tides. I can't think of an adjective that properly describes just how groundbreaking his work has been since the fall, with his "Aether" and "Stadium" mixes in particular pushing the boundaries of epic Trance farther than ever before.

His latest Aether Mix with the Russian Bobina is an altar of sound illuminated by piano and drum breakdowns, a beautiful voice sample, chord progressions galore, and his patented synth layering that brings it all together into a remarkable Trance ballad. Tracks like this are what give me hope that electronic music will weather this storm and emerge stronger than ever before. Grab your copy today from Armada!

Track of the Day: "Musical Dream" (Original Mix) - Invortex

With mainstream Trance becoming meshing more and more with Deep House and Electro, the sound of the underground is taking a wonderfully psychedelic turn. At underground events from the outskirts of LA to the deserts of Arizona the side stage vibes are being dominated by the harder, hallucinatory sound of psy-Trance. With mushroomy bass and kaleidoscopic transitions the genre lends itself perfectly to a night out dancing under the stars, giving users a vigorous 140 BPM beat to exhaust themselves to before fading out and allowing for short spurts of recovery. A quick listen to Invortex's past uploads makes it clear that this 19 year old Israeli producer has an aptitude for synergy between the enervating basslines that drive the harder styles of Trance music and the turbulent bass that has the nation in a frenzy.

Track of the Day: "Epic" (Gent & Jawns Edit) - Sandro Silva & Quintino

When you slap a slick Moombah vibe on top of an already stellar smash hit you get something truly "Epic!" Gent & Jawns are no strangers to producing some of the most innovative remixes about, having tampered with Diplo's "Express Yourself" last year whilst working alongside Datsik and moombah legends Nadastrom. The pair have resurrected Sandro Silva & Quintino's anthem from last season, slowing it right down slapping the original break amongst a 110 BPM rhythm that begs to be enjoyed this summer.

Track of the Day: "Video Siren" (Original Mix) - Gary Beck

This was absolutely the unofficial anthem of Movement 2013. Gary Beck's latest dominated the main stage at least twice when Dave Clarke dropped it the first day followed by Dubfire sunday afternoon. Truncate, among others brought the video sirens to the depths of the Underground stage making the track seem like it was on some kind of drunken repeat throughout the whole weekend. But no one was complaining, when it comes to Techno less is more and this is one of the headiest, stripped-out tracks of the summer.
