Off the back of the highly successful official release, brotherly Russian duo Matisse & Sadko’s take on American Rock outfit Shinedown’s ‘Unity’ single returns for round two with a free giveaway of the sought-after instrumental version.

But where Shinedown’s sinewy vocals never truly fit that of Matisse & Sadko’s euphoric key work, the instrumental version sees their remix of ‘Unity’ take further flight away from the realms of radio friendly club music with little compromise on energy and integrity throughout. Still as strong an indicator of the true potential of modern Dance music as it is the quality of remixes currently on offer, the free release of the instrumental version should open up for some pretty interesting mashup and edit opportunities.

Canadian Progressive duo Dzeko & Torres have proven something of a storm amid America’s tough yet melodic uprising of brazen club mongers.

But having set their standard for remix duties to an all time high with their remixes of ‘Who Is Ready To Jump‘ and ‘Strange Attractor‘, the duo take on the sugary vocal stylings of American singer Trey Songz to part with their latest floor filler. Delicately layering uplifting synth work and progressive chord play, the duos apex comes in the form of an uplifting blend of dynamic leads and steady beat work for this upbeat installment for the renowned Warner offshoot. Despite the significant resurgence of perky peak timers that always do the rounds for the summer season, Dzeko & Torres prove a sever cut above the mark with yet another quality production in the name of fine Canadian Dance music.

Bonded brothers of the transient peak timer Matisse & Sadko have had little cause to fret over their now promising industry shelf life. Having scaled the likes of Axtone and Armada Music alike, the Russian duos follow-up remix to M-3ox’s ‘Beating Of My Heart’ strays unexpectedly from the comfort zone of Dance music to take on American Rock outfit Shinedown’s single ‘Unity’.

But when the piercing call of Matisse & Sadko’s frisky key work breaks the surface of the original’s moving vocal line, ‘Unity’ takes flight towards the realms of infectious club music with little compromise on energy and integrity throughout.

Swedish newcomers Qulinez have established themselves as a fearless force amid their ascent to universal acknowledgement. Stumbling into the hands of Steve Angello’s Size Records with the Pete Tong approved winter anthem ‘Troll’, the young Scandinavian duo set their sights on the unsuspecting realms of Welsh alternative trio The Joy Formidable’s ‘A Heavy Abacus’.

Bringing an elegant array of melodic leads alongside the original’s quirky vocal line, their apex is somewhat flat compared to that of their standard setting industry debut. Nevertheless bridging the gap between the unsuspecting original and the club floor to which Qulinez are proving aptly suited for with significant strength, ‘A Heavy Abacus’ is a track to which their studio capabilities successfully cater for.

The typically Caribbean sound clash of Sean Paul is the latest mainstream cadaver to be given a club worthy facelift as Parisian club evangelist Gregori Klosman takes on ‘She Doesn’t Mind’ for Atlantic Records. With a noteworthy past for heavyset originals and coming of age remixes, Klosman’s approach to the realms of R&B is reassuring straight-laced.

Ditching Paul’s top line all together, his minimal incorporation of the originals key themes leaves room for the French producer to collect an array of grinding chords and Electro styled beats. Where ‘She Doesn’t Mind’ would be unlikely to inspire the more club-minded listener, Klosman’s take is as inoffensive and consistent a mainstream remix as you expect from Paris’s latest Electro House advocate.

Previously an icon for middle of the road Pop shenanigans, James Blunt can be tipped for having mustered some sterling remixes amid his involuntary exploits to the shores of Electronic Dance Music. But where Neapolitan House trio Daddy’s Groove have become something of a stronghold in melodically tuned anthems, their next dance with the devil better known as commercial pop comes in the form of a remix that is certain to turn some heads.

While the emotive top line may have been the only salvageable asset to the otherwise tame outing ‘Superstar’, the injection of peak time energy is a welcome breeze of change to an otherwise empty anthem. As the synths play havoc on the trio’s valiant Progressive backbone, its’ subtle melodic transitions make for a language far more convincing than that of the solemn British pop asset. With an anticipated vocal mix of ‘Wild World’ and new single ‘Power 2 The People’ enroute, this remix makes for promising stamina for a rapidly unfolding year of musical esteem for Daddy’s Groove.
