Those who have previously dismissed Australia’s hold on global Dance music obviously overlooked the master of Phasing and widely acclaimed floor filler Dirty South. As far as emotive and hard hitting anthems are concerned, his seminal 2011 anthem Alive was undoubtedly one of finest vocal offerings of 2011, uniting the talented master of Australian Progressive House with the country’s finest songstress to date and their phenomenal German peer Thomas Gold in a nod towards how Dance music should play out. With the latter preparing to drop his highly anticipated ‘Sing 2 Me’ on Axtone Records, the globe waited in awe for the follow-up to last years renowned outing of finely tuned club magic.

But those prayers have now been firmly answered. Laced with the divine studio etiquette that has seen the masterful Aussie producer flourish on the global club circuit, his return to Phazing alongside familiar stirring vocal accolade Kate Elsworth strikes with promising impact for the year ahead, with Thomas Gold’s renowned Progressive vibes establishing this as an early game changing offering from three of Electronic Dance Music’s most vital assets to date. Given the seal approval from none other than bonafide don of Electronic music Pete Tong on Radio 1, Eyes Wide Open not only marks Phasing’s sixth release, but one of the label’s most hotly anticipated offering to date.

‘Eyes Wide Open’ is released January 23rd via Phazing Records.

  • this is some professor shit!!

  • Pedro, if it was possible to like your comment, i would have done it :D

  • average track…

  • the track is phat, but the vocals on this one isnt good..shes a good singer but the verse suck horsedick, it sounded like she just was jamming over the track :P

  • I think the track is very medicore, nothing that’s outstanding. Just sounds like a mixture between Alive and Walking Alone.
    But the vocals are awesome!

  • Yeah I’ll agree with manu. Even if Thomas Gold and Dirty South are my favorite producers in progressive at the moment (next to Michael Woods), this track was nothing special when I saw Thomas Gold drop it in Chicago. Sure, there’s warm and emotional melodies but we ALREADY heard that in Walking Alone. Hopefully preview is leaving out Thomas Gold’s influence because he’s such a BOSS!

  • manu and dansts said it all tbh

  • meh

  • What? the vocal is amazing if ANYTHING in this mix! but I agree thee leads etc sounds like walking alone and alive.. abit booring

  • I don’t know why you guys are so disappointed about the vocal and the track overall..I love it..think of it being played at a festival in the early evening..crazy emotional
