Poised at two very different ends of the vast Electronic music spectrum, few could have comprehended seeing Melodic Aussie sisters Nervo knocking boots with the eccentric cross-nation Tech House triumphs of Pleasurekraft. But amid the prior’s vast sweep of radio-friendly club cuts and affinity for tech-house, the Swedish/American duo turn their more underground leaning minds to their EMI chart-pleaser ‘Your Gonna Love Again’.

Amid the mechanically disturbed top line that pervades their ‘Happily Never After’ remix, Pleasurekraft’s subtle melodic builds weave seamlessly into an affirmative romp of steady beasts and intricately layered lead work. In a far grittier extension of Nervo’s well-groomed club manoeuvres, Pleasurekraft prove that amid the alleged EDM explosion there need not be a cap on creative Electronic offerings.

Once the best kept secret of Europe’s tectonic Progressive players, German Mpire builder Moguai has shown little restraint where his studio assets for 2012 are concerned. Ascending the ranks of EMI to take apart Spanish peer and previously solid-cut underground enthusiast Wally Lopez’s ‘Keep Running The Melody’.

Armed with the vocal assets of Canadian songstress Kreesha Turner, Moguai’s emphasis remains on solid beats and enigmatic lead work throughout. Making the mechanical transition from divine euphoric chord progressions to grinding rhythmic cohesion, the Mau5trap approved producer extends his industrious wings with a quality major label remix without straying too close to the monotony of the mainstream EDM comfort zone.

Be it early Floyd rendition ‘Proper Education’ or 2011’s groundbreaking ‘Niton (The Reason), where the country’s electronic legacy is now associated with three particular producers, Eric Prydz has proven one its single most vital elements from the outset and having backed up this legacy with enigmatic performances across the globe, his reign is all too familiar on a universal scale.

As their name might sugggest, the Swedish House Mafia are a team synonymous with rigid family values and a break neck approach to anthemic floor fillers. Following up their landmark offering alongside Pendulum side-project Knife Party and the positive assortment of chart-worthy assets currently filling their musical trophy cabinet, the triumphant trio take proceedings with same momentum that has carried their legacy from the outset. Heralded by another of Sweden’s fine exports, Absolut Vodka, for an exclusive ad spot, we can rest assured that their ambitious sights for universal profiles are yet to subsist. Bringing things back to basis for the original instrumental, an array of grinding synths and symphonic chord play make for a perfectly orchestrated outing of club music that persuasively argues a case for the Swedish House Mafia’s ongoing onslaught of the clubs and charts alike.

In the same vein as the track brags further epic connotations for the dignified trio, their visual exploit alongside Absolut extends their trend of cutting-edge music videos. Ditching the controversial aspects of their previous videos, this vodka-endorsed offering see’s the three producers pitted against themselves in a somewhat augmented reality. While heralding the race that has seen them champion the realms of Electronic music, its captivating visuals and impressive CGI exploits make for an impressive addition to their legacy.

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.

Just when you thought the Swedish House invasion could not spit out any more promising House assets, along came Stockholm’s Dimitri Vangelis and Wyman. Having already laid solid offerings for Joia sub-label Nero and excelled remix duties for DJ DLG and Jus Jack, the promising Swede duo descend upon EMI to don one of their most detailed assaults on global Dance music to date. Ditching the typecasts with a genuinely moving assortment of melodic rises and vibrant chord play, ‘Roll The Dice’ is an unexpected peak in the country’s young and determined movement.

Tranisitioning to uplifting synth leads that build into an overtly incredible injection of positive energy and consistently tuned energy, their major label debut may not have all the makings for a once in a life time event, but there is something distinctly untouchable about the heights attained by their undisturbed knack for taking the familiar and making it their own. With Miami on the cards and further remixes set to drop on the road to their time to shine on American soil, the duo need not gamble on hitting all the right notes with this offering leading the way.
