Dyro Announces WOLV Recordings Imprint, Single Titled “Wolv”

Dyro Announces WOLV Recordings Imprint, Single Titled “Wolv”

| July 31, 2014 | News, Preview | http://bit.ly/1nVplcu

The future is bright for Dyro, and the budding Dutch star took his career further into his own hands by beginning to curate his own label, to be called WOLV Recordings. It’s unsure whether there was any falling out with the team at Revealed Recordings, but last year’s highest entry in the DJ Mag Top 100 at #30 clearly wants to take the helm of something other than just his own tracks and sets. This label appears to be the perfect outlet for Dyro‘s new solo tracks, as well as rumored collaborations with R3hab and Martin Garrix. He will begin the label’s existence with a track of his own, suitably titled “WOLV”.

The debut single for the label is absolute madness. The song has a darkish feeling  to begin, and that does not disappear at all. Melody and drop alike: “Wolv” goes hard. The track is really dominated by an acid influence, which mainly manifests itself during the drop. This is a departure in the standard sound of Dyro tracks, since most have a big room or electro vibe instead. Vocal samples are intertwined throughout, and the production value that this adds is what makes “WOLV” a must-play. The full track will be released on August 11.

Their new album  Start To Feel is out and we’re sure they will want to show it off! Expect a lot of new tunes from the album! As well as Rayel who recently had his debut album Find Your Harmony come out not to long ago, and the piano man of trance should be an excellent treat to watch work the decks. Tickets are still available over at Ticketmaster. The event is 18+ and is brought to you by Insomniac and Skills. There should be no skimping on the production value at this show so it should be the best bang for your buck this weekend!

There are a lot of benefits to recycling. It helps save the Earth’s environment, and gives a lot of people jobs. However, recycling is not so welcome in the music industry. Do it the right amount, because fans will roast an artist for using the same synth multiple times, but not for having a signature sound. Thomas Newson toes the line with his latest track “Ravefield,” which serves as the follow-up to his Revealed Recordings debut, “Pallaroid”. He takes a similar sound to a familiar label for his next release, which was first debuted in February 2014, and was also rumored to be a collaboration with the Bassjackers titled “Chainsaw Wars”. Support has already started from various members of the Revealed family, and expect more to come as the August 4 release date comes closer to fruition.

“Ravefield” is probably one of the most festival ready tracks that has come out so far in 2014. It follows the formula of an already successful banger track in “Pallaroid,” but makes use of a different musical key and unique nuances to make “Ravefield” more powerful than it’s predecessor. Unfortunately for the purist fans out there, the original mix has only been played in recent radio shows, since Hardwell has been mashing the track with Galantis‘ “You” and Sick Individuals & Axwell‘s “I Am”. Both breaks bring something unique with different melodies, and different stylings. The drop mainly follows a scale pattern, but does so in a way that is quite impressive. Overall, “Ravefield” is a high-octane track that’s just waiting for peak time success.

Be prepared to hear this new Thomas Newson track dropped worldwide in the coming weeks. Until its fully released, enjoy this teaser!

Looking for a dark, trippy, and very late-night focused tech-house EP? Give Full Force a listen as these italian producers come at your speakers full power in all their tech house glory. Using a very focused combination of bass and drums, they manage to craft a sound that not only manages to be both minimalistic and complex, but also very groovy and dance-able. The way these producers take out the bass line at certain moments, the way they change up drum beats at certain moments, and overall their ability to create interesting track with just a few instruments is impressive to say the least. While some may find themselves a bit bored by each track as a whole due to their tendency to not differ from one musical idea, each track has parts that shine in themselves and could be interesting additions to any DJ set.

Aruna – Start A Fire (Remixes) [Enhanced Music]

The strongest remix packages usually span multiple genres, and that is exactly the case with the remix pack for Aruna‘s “Start A Fire”. The remixes run from progressive house, to trance, and to deep breaks as four different artists have contributed to the package. Husman provides the first progressive house take, using sliding synths and a great chord progression to create some musical madness. Next up, a trance take from AWD vs. Thomas Hayes. Blissful chords and great overall production make this remix powerful. Mr. FijiWiji comes into the EP’s #3 slot with his breaks-style remix. His always relaxed sound fits the mood of “Start A Fire” easily, and serves as a great early evening tune. Lastly, Jonathan Pitch brings one more dose of progressive house sound for the final slot of the EP. He once again brings in a powerful synth combination, and a great bassline to round out the “Start A Fire” remix package. All four are available now on Beatport, so grab them all and enjoy!

Martin Volt & Quentin State return to Protocol Recordings with their newest track “Rush.” This duo has been on every major label you can think of, Revealed, Trice, and Protocol twice. You can hear the signature Martin Volt & Quentin State sound that is the electro house & progressive house crossover. The first drop has the extremely gritty, almost complextro sound, while the next two have that upbeat progressive sound with those amazing synths. This track has been a staple in Nicky Romero‘s set’s ever since Ultra this year, and fortunately for us, it’s finally been released.

Martin Volt & Quentin State‘s newest song, “Rush” is out now on Protocol Recordings so make sure you get yourself a copy. Take a listen to the whole track below and enjoy!

Few in the music industry have the all-around talent that Dannic has. His productions are always unique, and is easily one of the best technical DJ’s on your area’s festival lineup. He is best known for sprinkling his sets with new unreleased tracks, and one of those is out today. The tune referenced above is called “Zenith,” and has just dropped through Dannic‘s Breda-born friend Hardwell‘s Revealed Recordings label. When it comes to releasing on this label, Dannic is just about as much of a veteran as one can be. He had plenty of releases under his former name, DJ Funkadelic, and now continues his streak of excellence under his new identity. “Zenith” follows an acid house blueprint from start to finish, but still does possess a sweet melody. This emphasizes that Dannic does not resort to using the “brute force” method. Each section links together easily, and the “C’mon everybody, let’s all get down” serves as the finishing touch. The results of “Zenith” are quite impressive, and support from Sick Indivudals, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and Laidback Luke just furthers the argument that “Zenith” is one of the most formidable summer tracks. The song is out today on Beatport, so grab your copy and enjoy!

Setting the tone ahead of this year’s summer season, raw Dutch powers are combined in a mix of Nick Double & Sam O Neall in their first ever release together on Spinnin’ Records with ‘Live Life’. They say that two is a charm and with evocative synth play and sturdy beat work, their collective on Spinnin Records spells lush club fuel at its finer, suggesting that this duo isn’t just blowing smoke where European Dance music is concerned. Setting a canvas of Progressive beats and prancing synth play to deal a blow of euphoric vibes left right and centre, ‘Live Life!’ encapsulates the peak time energy now formally associated with this Dutch duo-threat.

Live Life has been getting some love from top DJs like Dyro, Afrojack, Tritonal, Hardwell, Steve Aoki and many more!

Teaming up alongside newcomer Canadian singer Delaney Jane, Italian maestros Lush & Simon are back with yet another high-octane release for Doorn Records in ‘In My Hands’.

The fusion of these two enigmatic producers Lush & Simon and the lovely miss Delaney Jane makes ‘In My Hands’ a solid installment of dexterous fuel for the summer season.

Still considered to be one of Scotland’s most diversely tailored House assets to date, Adam Richard Wiles better known as Calvin Harris, follows up the June release of ‘Summer‘ with a heavyset second installment on his on imprint Fly Eye Records in a new track entitled ‘C.U.B.A’.

As highlighted in his collection of exclusive previews set to drop throughout 2014, the coarse leads and typically intense beats of ‘C.U.B.A’ play out particularly well combining swifty drum work and raw energy formally associated with this Scottish rocker.
