With Pete Tong and Annie Mac singing its praises on their respective prime-time radio shows for BBC Radio 1, legendary British producer Stuart Price, also known as Jacques Lu Cont, continues to raise the bar with his authentically tailored exploits of a certain vintage appeal as he comes out with yet another refreshing free release. Fresh off the release of ‘Underground‘ and an acclaimed debut on the Essential Mix, Price continues the trend of simply giving things away with a free download of his unofficial remix of Coldplay’s ‘Charlie Brown’. In spite of the official remix release falling in favor of Dave Aude’s far less innovative version, Jacques Lu Cont’s take on the track reigns supreme with a mixture of subtle keys, growling bass lines and rhythmic drum work.

Premiered on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection and with Eric Prydz singing his praises on BBC Radio 1, few remixes have had such a spectacular inaugration into the limelight as Andre Sobota’s take on ‘Princess Of China’.

Teeming with warm vintage synths, delicate drum work and crisp percussions, Sobota’s second mark in 2012 is one of distinctive properties, setting the bar for his forthcoming release on Pryda Friends high.

Coldplay & Rihanna – Princess Of China (Andre Sobota Remix)

Coldplay have had something of a speedy inauguration into the realms of Electronic Dance Music. Following on from Fedde Le Grand’s well-received remodel of the band’s global hit ‘Paradise’, esteemed American peer Dave Aude is on hand to work some of the studio magic that has illuminated his career over the past decade. Matching the familiar melodics of Chris Martin with an equally emotive soundscope of racing synths, Aude treads respectfully on the turf of Coldplay’s universal Pop stylings while injecting ‘Charlie Brown’ with an exciting backbone of eclectic club fuel. Where its seamless transitions outline Aude’s undeniable talents, the tracks unpretentious energy is enough to solidify the concept that somewhere along the line these two genres have become rather apt bedfellows.

The aspiring Dimitri Vangelis and Wyman are back to take on the titan foursome from London that is Coldplay. Whilst Swedish House Mafia, Fedde Le Grand and Tiësto are successfully dibbling their own remixes on two tracks off the rock group’s latest studio album, the Stockholm duo make a go at an acclaimed offspring off of Coldplay’s second studio album, released in 2002, and are consequently picking up on the trend to render club cuts of one of the biggest music acts of our time. After a prolific year that has been jam packed with a host of remixes to Free,Call My NameVisions Of LoveBoom and a single with The Funktuary named Ignited to only name a few, the two return to shed light on their frisky take on The Scientist.

Atop the heavenly sing-along vocals of lead singer Chris Martin, the Swede’s add a catchy whistle and fundamental piano chords to make up a peerless break-down. Followed by a plump synth drop with powerfully pounding kicks and perfectly pitched upper layers, the club revamp of ‘The Scientist’ is due to fuel the ingeniousness of the pair into further recognition and build upon the reputation of being a duo with a bright future ahead.

Following Fedde Le Grand’s impeccable remix and the leaked but yet to be officially released Swedish House Mafia remix on Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, a third official remix on the popular pop-rock foursome continues Coldplay’s noteworthy onslaught on clubland lately. Courtesy of none other than superstar DJ Tiësto, Paradise – one of the larger tracks off their recent fifth studio album, titled ”Mylo Xyloto” – is reassembled into a full-on festival bliss. Building upon the technique of looping chopped up vocal parts which we’ve come to know from the triumphs of Sweden’s Johan Wedel and Third Party’s forthcoming Feel single, only now using the incredible voice of lead singer Chris Martin, this has success written all over it. Withholding the key elements for the genesis of a euphoric mayhem on any dancefloor, the gut-wrenching chord progression and fulfilling drums of the newest production from the world renowned powerhouse that is Tiësto are destined to grow on anything living, if they haven’t already.

Having just recently breached the holy number of a whooping 10 million fans on his Facebook fan page, the Dutch veteran whom is currently touring across Mexico prepares for the release of another ground-breaker. Already known for tracks like Zero 76 (with Hardwell), Beautiful World (with Mark Knight), the remix on Hard-Fi’s Fire In The House, Maximal Crazy and the upcoming People Of The Night (with AN21 and Max Vangeli) in 2011, the relentless crusade of Tiësto proceeds strongly along with the rise of the now previewed sample of his remix for Coldplay.

As he propels the grounds of immortality and fame, another anticipated production from the Swedish prodigy that is Avicii is emitted. Used frequently as a much-appreciated opener in his live sets lately, the mastermind hands out his rendition on Coldplay’s Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall. The original track, that is still on the wait for the official release of the Swedish House Mafia remix, has seen wonders done on the global charts since its release in early June of this year thanks to the distinguished voice of lead singer Chris Martin and its catchy sounds. Now getting the prestigious Avicii treatment, the pop-rock foursome from London riddles their way further into electronic dance music – a path the PR representatives of global music industry tend to be utterly fond of choosing. Following his vital break-through in early 2010 along with the release of Bromance, House heads have witnessed the compassionate and massive rise of Avicii over the past 20 months, consistently fuelled by the releases of Fade Into DarknessSunshine, Blessed and the remixes on Drowning, Rapture, Hang With Me among many others. Also housing an immense amount of forthcoming smashes, including the vocal remix of DerezzedSilhouettes and the yet to be released 2011 trademark, Levels, there seem to be no obstacles able to stop the exploding ascending Avicii in near future.

Not to be confused with ASH’s Gun single (fake-nicked as the Avicii remix of ‘Philter – Revolver’), the emotional instrumentals of the newest gem out from the Swede’s lab evoke euphoria and an instigating synth progression alongside the outstanding vocals that truly raised the desireness of the tune now being given away as a halloween treat!

We’re all strongly familiar with the tremendous Swedish House Mafia remix on Coldplay’s essential 2011 contender, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, that was unveiled a few months back. As the pop-rock foursome from London just released the new Paradise single in anticipation for the release of Coldplay’s fifth studio album on October 24th, we can hereby shed light on the next club-adapted take on the highly-celebrated group. Courtesy of the floating of a certain live-recorded video from Fedde Le Grand himself test-driving the new remix at Space, Ibiza a while back, the chord progression of the well-renowned Dutchman’s interpretition left us eager in the wait for the uptempo remix on Coldplay as the Swede’s offering is yet to be released. Fedde, that is mainly recognized for being a firm headliner of countless festival’s this year and the label head of one of the more successful release platform’s of 2011 – Flamingo, is the one responsible for some of 2011’s most peerless single anthem’s – AutosaveRunningMetrum and So Much Love included. Also having the Freaky collaboration with Nicky Romero coming up and a couple of extraordinary remixes of Never Will Be Mine and Soundtracks and Comebacks behind him, the Utrecht-bred DJ and producer returns to remix one of this century’s most prestigious quartet, bringing out the sounds of electronic dance music to the global music scene again.

It certainly does seem Coldplay, or atleast their management, have a thing for the fist-pumping chords of ”house” and club music as not only are they bringing aboard both Swedish House Mafia and Fedde Le Grand to headline their unprecedented original’s into the history books, but also have announced the one and only Tiësto has laid his hands on his own package of remix stems for an official take. Nevertheless, the Fedde Le Grand remix has now touched ground, not headlined by the regular characteristics of the Hollander, but has a more progressive touch to it. Building up with his signature array of solid, leviathan beats, the new release off Toolroom Records tapers off for the unfolding of sweeping synths, cut-off effects and throbbing kicks to embrace the unprecedented vocals slickly.
