Holland’s Bingo Players are well and truly Dutch House music’s ‘mixed bag’. From early breakthroughs alongside Chocolte Puma to their vocal anthem ‘Cry (Just a Little)’, the daring duo have thoroughly enjoyed the realms of clubbing limbo with little sign of a typecast or predictable common asset to their name. Adding to their already affluent imprint Hysteria with impressive pace, Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten are evidently no closer to singing their musical souls on a single aspect of genre.
But following on from the popular ‘Out Of My Mind’, Bingo Players strike back with a new original track in the form of ‘Buzzcut’. Uniquely bending the temperament of their heavy-laced drum play, ‘Buzzcut’ builds on their already assorted collection of gems with another piece of the puzzle for this consistent duo’s studio output.
Slated for release May 20th.
Famed ‘Million Voices’ remixer Jonas Törn, best known as TORN, makes his long overdue return to remix the title track from Jamie N Commons’ recent ‘Rumble and Sway’ EP. While the original was a song that combined elements from soul, jazz and delta blues, TORN’s remix sees the Swedish producer depart from the wobbly electro house we have come to associate with TORN, showcasing a grainy display of glitch hop that maintains the jazzy, vintage vibe of the Jamie N Commons original.

Since it’s release early last month, the first single from Empire Of The Sun’s highly-anticipated second studio album has seen an onslaught of unofficial reworks. Stepping up to the mark after a slew of viral videos of his Launchpad wizardry, 21-year-old Australian producer M4SONIC is the first to bat for the official remix package of ‘Alive’. Playing on the familiar melodies and vocals of the original, his extensive layers of delicate melodics and grinding synths work in unison to land a competent extension of the original’s energy.
Slated for release in June.
As formally debuted in Eric Prydz’s EPIC podcast last year, we have received word that Jeremy Olander’s melodic remix of Golden Girls’ ‘Kinetic’ will see it’s long-awaited release on May 13th through Floorplay Music.
More than two decades down the line from the tracks original release, Olander’s 21st century take drives the solid production values and deep emotive resonance of the now genre defying movements that the likes of Prydz and his likeminded peers regularly deal in. But with an inoffensive approach to this forward thinking classic, Olander’s new school studio wit proves the turning point of turning nostalgic memories in landmark industry moments.
Out May 13th.
In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Toolroom Records, the record label of Mark Knight follows up the recent, much-acclaimed release of ‘Your Love’ to call upon German Electro pundits Digitalism to remix the latest single from British indie rock foursome Bloc Party following last year’s re-release of ‘Zdarlight’. With a large portion of the original still intact, the German duo adds a coarse, electronic undertone to the warm and summerish melodies of ‘Truth’, giving the song a unique and uplifting vibe.
Out May 13th.
British electro technician Stuart Price, more commonly known under the alias of Jacques Lu Cont, combines forces with Size Records boss Steve Angello to breathe new life into Depeche Mode’s ‘Soothe My Soul’ – a track off of the band’s 13th studio album – in the name of organic dance music. Consistently sharp but embracing an old-school twist reminiscent of Steve Angello circa 2006, the duo tackle Depeche Mode’s original with the utmost respect, replacing it’s rhythmic drum pattern and overall darkly intimate sound with vintage energy and fast-laced electro stylings.
Release is slated for May 6th.
With a vast discography that testaments his ability to master countless different sounds behind him, long-serving Austrian producer Marcus Füreder, better known as Parov Stelar, turns his creative guise to the stylings of renowned songstress Lana Del Rey. Taking on a song from the American’s acclaimed album ‘Born To Die’, his remix of ‘Dark Paradise’ strips back the original’s soulful exuberance in an atmospheric remodel that provides a melodic and docile digression in a similar vein as Stelar’s already impressive musical footsteps.

First played in Milan back in December and given a more formal premiere at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival last month, Hardwell and Dyro reveal the release date of their highly-anticipated single ‘Never Say Goodbye’, featuring vocals provided by Heather Bright, a.k.a. Bright Lights. Dealing in poignant melodic play and lengthy synth textures underneath Bright’s elegant vocal line, ‘Never Say Goodbye’ marks a continuation of the peak-time energy and well-crafted club cuts we have come to associate with Holland’s proficient Robbert van de Corput and his Amsterdam-bred protégé Jordy van Egmond.
Slated for release May 20th through Revealed Recordings. Watch Hardwell and Dyro play the track at the UMF main stage and Hardwell’s official Miami 2013 aftermovie below.
Continuing their spree of unpretentious dance music for the masses, fast-ascending brotherly duo Guy and Howard Lawrence, better known as Disclosure, follow up ‘White Noise’ with a new original track alongside British songstress Eliza Doolittle. Taken from their eagerly-awaited debut studio album, ‘Settle’, which release is slated for June 3rd, ‘You & Me’ showcases their future garage wizardry and their inimitable knack for taking the familiar and making it their own.
Out April 28th.
Hot on the heels from two three-track EP’s for Deadmau5’s Mau5trap Recordings, Scottish electro crusader Nom De Strip re-unites with Toronto peer Hatiras for round six of their collaborative affair with ‘Nippleodeon’ following last year’s ‘Saucy’. Rallying scattered bleeps, rerunning vocal chants and swift tones buzzing in the background, ‘Nippleodeon’ fits well with the forward-thinking sound scope that Chris Lake’s Rising Music imprint has continued to champion, placing minimalistic electro house against a strong tropical backdrop.
Slated for release April 22nd.
