Dutch house long server Don Diablo unites with British producer Matt Nash for an affirmative new spot of club fuel for Axtone. Premiered by Swedish House Mafia during their One Last Tour, this latest Ax approved gem looks to test the aural capacity of his infamous imprint once again for 2013.

Encompassing a strong surge of emotive energy courtesy of Noonie Bao’s vocoded topline, “Starlight (Could You Be Mine)” ascends into a full-bodied onslaught of melodic electro house from outside of the low-end reliant touchstone. With little room left to dispute the momentum Axtone has picked up of late, Don Diablo and Matt Nash’s collaborative endeavor makes a strong mark in the peak time skyline for 2013.

Out soon on Axtone Records.

Building momentum with a rising swirl of melodics as a backdrop to Labrinth’s vocal work, Don Diablo launches into an onslaught of tectonic Electro stylings to muster a surprisingly impressive remodel.

Since working their way onto Size Records’ roster of new-age talents with mighty anthem ‘Troll’, there has been a vivacious buzz surrounding fresh Swede duo Qulinez. But promptly following up remix duties for Welsh alternative mob The Joy Formidable, the aspiring Scandinavians take on Dutch House trailblazer Don Diablo’s ‘Silent Shadows’.

Swerving from rising Progressive lead work right through to heavy-footed Dub Step digressions, their remix steps somewhat outside of their comfort zone without breaking away entirely. Landing on a solid canvas of coarse leads and stern beats, Qulinez more familiar sound scope emerges from the tracks middle to forge yet another formative remix for the increasingly popular protégés of Steve Angello.
