What can I tell you about this guy that you don’t already know? Visionaire is the epitome of “zero to hero,” as he has made the jump from obscurity to stardom in a time that feels like it was just overnight. Now, he’s playing on the same stage as guys like Cazzette, Jordy Dazz, and 3LAU. He has paved his way through a constant stream of new tracks, always available for free download. Visionaire brings a brand new banger to us listeners today, titled “Genesis”.
Along with the cool name, comes one of the coolest melodies I’ve heard from any producer. He advertises this melody as “trancey,” however I think it is better described as “phenomenal”. This melody leads straight into a trademark Visionaire buildup, featuring a chopped lead and pitchbent synths. A part that has become customary to all Visionaire originals is that sample right before the drop. This track features one that proclaims “raise the system, bass is hitting,” and gosh, is that bass hitting! You can always rely on some heavy big-room from this producer, and he provides once again.
Enjoy this free download from Visionaire today!
Wolfgang Gartner released the teaser video for his new song “Piranha.” Although it’s one of the shortest teaser videos I’ve seen, we definitely get a feel for the tone of the song.
Despite the video being only 30 seconds we get a great feel for the sound of this banger. When it comes to melodies, Wolfgang Gartner is absolutely amazing, one of the best, and “Piranha” reminds us just how good he is. The synths he uses are always amazing. Although we don’t get a drop, I’m sure it will be huge. He definitely tops himself every time he releases something, which is a goal all producers should strive for.
“Piranha” is going to be released on Wolfgang Gartner‘s own label, Kindergarten Records. Take a listen to the short and sweet preview below and enjoy!

Canadian duo Dzeko & Torres are at it again, coming in with what might be their biggest release yet. Keeping in mind their recent of remix for Krewella, they now bring their talents to Tiësto‘s Musical Freedom Records with a crossover progressive/electro track known as “Highline”. These guys have been putting out a lot of great music in 2013, including “Down To This” with Chuckie, and my personal favorite, “Hurricane”. “Highline” follows some huge sounds on the Musical Freedom catalog, like “Big Bang” by twoloud, and “Out of Control” from the boss Tiësto and Alvaro.
Like I mentioned before, “Highline” is an explosive crossover between progressive house and electro house. If you listen to the melody, you can hear that these guys have developed a very progressive lead, paired with a grinding bassline underneath. This setup leads straight into a standard house build, comprised of snares and pitch bends layered onto the existing sound. The drop combines this progressive sound they love with a pounding big-room bottom line, one that is bound to take over the sound systems at clubs and festivals alike in 2014.
This main-room hit will drop as an early Christmas gift from Dzeko & Torres on December 23 via Musical Freedom Records. Enjoy this preview now, and put the full release on your list for Christmas!
