Tenishia & Susana - Never Let You Down



2014 has been a huge year for the guys from Malta! Tenishia have tasted Beatport chart success with Ana Criado on ‘Ever True’ and ‘Lifetime When Right’ with Maria Nayler all in between sold out arena shows and national television appearances while holding strong to their position in the DJ Mag Top 100. How can it get even bigger? How about a collaboration with one of the leading ladies in the Trance scene.


Susana really needs no introduction, her collaborations with some of the biggest names in the business are now classics and her own productions have expanded her fan base enormously. ‘Feel You Here’ in the Beat Service Remix is the perfect example, spending quality time in the Beatport Trance Top 10. So Tenishia and Susana together? The result is HUGE!

JES - High Glow (The Remixes: Sunny Lax, Ciaran McAuley, Hamptons Chill)

Artists: JES, Sunny Lax, Ciaran McAuley, Hamptons Chill 
Track: High Glow (The Remixes)
Label: Magik Muzik
Release Date: October 27, 2014

Expectations were high when JES decided to start work on a remix project for the genre-busting, progressive trance classic "High Glow" which she released with Tiesto under the mysterious "Taxigirl" moniker. "It's not everyday that you write a song with a guitar in a hotel bathroom and it translates perfectly to the dance floor," JES said about her experiences of writing while on tour. "As a songwriter you're always searching for inspiration, but sometimes the inspiration finds you". 


Channeling the same creativity that she used to create the song, JES set about finding the perfect remixers. In an exclusive premiere on edm.com, Hungarian producer and DJ Sunny Lax delivers a full tilt, progressive trance mix that brings "High Glow" right into 2014 without compromising the enchanting beauty of the original. Extended builds and a breathtaking, anthemic string-infused plateau perfectly compliment JES' ethereal vocals. Sunny's earliest releases on Anjunabeats quickly brought him to the forefront of the progressive trance genre with support from the likes of Above & Beyond & Armin van Buuren.  




Ciaran McAuley's uptempo retro UK influenced trance mix creates a surprising reinvention of the song. Keeping the emotion as it's focus and featuring layered haunting arpeggios and subliminal vocals this mix is sure to translate well to the dance floor and playlists alike. 




Hamptons Chill make a welcome return to the scene with their own inspired down tempo remix of "High Glow". Their last remix (As The Rush Comes) from JES' chill out album "Into The Dawn" went on to become a staple of poolside playlists worldwide. Once again putting the cool back into chill with a truly deep mix that combines emotion and emersion in equal measure the Hamptons Chill mix turns lounging into an art form. 

The High Glow Remix package will be released by Magik Muzik on October 27th with the Hamptons Chill remix to follow in early November.

Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston - We're All We Need



"We Are All We Need" is an an album that places human relationships at its core, and explores the experiences and emotions that bind us – whether on defiant ode to friendship “We’re All We Need”, the anthemic “Blue Sky Action” or the possessive, post break-up tension of “Sticky Fingers”. As with 2011's "Group Therapy", Above & Beyond have worked with Andrew Bayer on the production of the album, which features 16 tracks including vocal collaborations with Zoë Johnston, Alex Vargas and Justine Suissa.

Above & Beyond commented: “As the writing process unfolded we kept noticing a recurring theme. Zoe hit it on the head with the beautiful song “We’re All We Need” and, after a minute’s thought, we had our album title. It’s very Above & Beyond and feels to us like a development of Group Therapy: you are most certainly included in our ‘We’!” 

No song on the album embodies these themes more than the aforementioned title track "We're All We Need", sung beautifully by Zoë Johnston.

Amos feat. Sara Jane Neild - It Happens


It Happens brings Amos and the great vocals of Sarah Jane Neild together for a massive uplifting vocal trancer. The package includes mixes from Amos & Riot Night, the incredible Steve Morley with his mix already gaining early support from Armin on ASOT and finally Mexican Trance legend Mike Rodas.
Download/Purchase:
Amos & Riot Night Remix
The Amos and Riot night has big kicks and sub, with tech elements and rolling percussions right from the off giving it a really good energy. Atmospheric plucks build the track to a key change thats sure to get crowds moving and Dj’s putting their hands in the air. Airy and almost ghostly pads build the track to the break down where the vocal drops. Sarah Jane has one of those voices and hits the sweet spot as soon as you hear it. Accompanied by big trance pads the vocals works beautifully to bring in the main hook of pure uplifting chords. As they filter out the vocals return to build the track to the drop. And it’s a drop sure to send crowds into hysteria. One not to miss on Digitized and if vocal you trance is your thing, you need this tune in your collection.
Steve Morley Remix
Next up on remix duties is Steve Morley with his uplifting and energetic style. Starting with filtering tech acid sounds a lovely pluck the pads builds atmospherically as it develop. Evolving pads and plucky leads continue to build the euphoric feeling as it reaches the main break down. Big nord style pads filter up bring the vocal with them. This rework really highlights Sarahs voice and the minimal start to the break make this one for those who like vocal trance built around the vocal. Keeping it simple, but really really effective this breakdown really makes the vocal shine and will have listeners hands in the air as it build to a crescendo. Giving the lead a different flavour again Steve delivers with a bright rolling lead arp which builds and builds to the drop, which is another moment or Morley madness in the making. If pure uplifting trance is your thing, this is definitely the version for you and will be in your “got to play list” for a while to come.
Mike Rodas Remix
The Mike Rodas remix brings a faster paced take on Amos’ version with rolling 16th basses that really drive the track along. Bringing the vocals in nice and early in this remix it gives the track a different feel. Big filtering pads and square arps build the track as it moves towards the break, and brings the vocal back in, before dropping listeners into break that will bring one of those hands in the air with your eyes closed moments to crowds everywhere. Ethnics style pads and deep subby bass pads mean this remix will really work on bug systems in big venues; not to mention everywhere else! Again, using the vocals to the build the track back up, this time the vocal point after the break is big ducking pads, accompanied by the vocals and ethnic pads. Mike Rodas has done a great job putting a different spin on this track. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
That concludes yet another great pack from Digitized.
