Lifting It Higher is undoubtedly another validated proof of the fact that we’re emerging the times of Summer. Headlined by an intense remix from Sweden’s earnest Alex Lamb, whose recent work on Nero Recordings’ Redemption package has been receiving quite some support lately, the track, originally made by Filip Jenven alongside golden vocalist Max C, is also graced with a hardhitting beat from Germany and the corners of Micha Moor, following his latest instalment on Scream and Shout Recordings – Keep On Rising.

What an Autumn the house music serves us up with! Another week with absolute smashing hits, the track of the day is Give It Back, made by Sergio Flores, check it out!
This long-waited release is finally here! Another banger from Size Records mixing beautiful vocals, a harmonic melody and a drop straight to heaven! It got released today with a private edit made by Steve Angello, seems like that’s the one the Mafia trio have been playing on their gigs, and that’s also the one I prefer from these three tracks. However, a brilliant collaboration from Junior Sanchez, Harry Romero, Alexander Technique & Shawnee Taylor, hoping to see more from them in the future!
BOOM, what a track! A sound of jazz mashed up with a brilliant melody, a top track in my book! Signed and released by Defected is this track made by Sergio Flores with outstanding vocals from Joy Malcolm. The original is a must, buy it now!
The Swedish DJ/producer Sebjak is growing, here’s a banger he made with the Spannish Richard Grey, got some massive support from Tiesto, David Guetta, Erick Morillo and many more! Signed and released today by Sondos Records, a track with a bouncing club sound, it’s huge!
A collaboration of Swedes and this is what you get, amazing! Great vocals from Sofia Guivera and an absolute smashing remix from France and the duo French Government are almost in the lower edge of what this release really is, go get your copy now!
The amazing Coracao has been in for the long run! Now it’s time for another release with remixes of this track. My favourite in this one is an outstanding remix made by the Swedes Andrés Cabrera & Sandro Monte, wow!
A cool beach-house release from the Canadian Andy Reid with a harmonic saxophone sound, love it! Including a remix made by YUG with the same symmetric sound, check it out!
Here is a preview of French Government’s remix of Obey, Alex Lamb, Filip Jenven feat. Sofia Guivera – Believe. I think the French Government are very talanted French DJ’s/producers and I like their style of house. Listen to the preview below, it will be out on TopDJ Records the 15th of September.
The remixes of the amazing track Unleash My Love got released today! We know this one from earlier this spring with a great vocal from the Norwegian vocalist Christina Skaar. This time it was time for some other producers to show off some production skill, I’m impressed! This release features remixes from Alex Sayz & Alex Lamb, Alaa, JP Serano & Filip Jenvén and finally Andy Harding. Among them I prefer the JP Serano & Filip Jenvén remix, which one do you prefer?
I live, eat and breath music! 22 years old, focusing on making my music heard with a plan on conquering the world!
I’m a simple guy. Give me a couple of beers, girls and a studio and you’ve made my day.
2. You’re still quite new in this business, how did your interest
for house music – and music in general – begin?
Yeah I’m new in the house scene, but I have been in the business for a couple of years in other genres. I don’t know really how I got in to house music. I guess I wanted to try something new and refreshing.
3. Which producing software do you prefer and why?
I pefer FL Studio cos that is what i started of with 8 years ago, back then called Fruity Loops. Think it easy and i get the same quality out of it as any other software.
4. With whom would like to do a back-to-back session?
Would be cool to do a track with Eric Prydz. But there are alot of people that I would like to make tracks with, the list is long.
5. Top 5 tracks at the moment
1. Alex Lamb ft. Christina Skaar – Freedom (Original Mix)
2. Albin Myers feat. St James – There 4 U (MyBack Club Mix)
3. Criez D – The Tumble (Original Mix)
4. Obey, Alex Lamb, Filip Jenvén feat. Sofia Guivera – Believe (Original Mix)
5. Pryda – M.S.B.O.Y. (Original Mix)
6. What is your main goal with the house music?
I love music and I would love to share my sound with the world.
And maybe inspire others too!
7. You recently dropped two great vocal house tracks
(Believe & Freedom), is this your personal style, vocals?
I do music that I would like to play, i don’t have a specific style. it all depends on what mood im in.
8. What can we expect from you in the future?
Lots of releases and collaborations with Alex Sayz, Jonas Stenberg and many more that I can’t tell more about now
Three quick questions:
1. Vinyl, CD or mp3?
2. Blondes or brunettes?
Doesn’t matter its the boobs that matter
3. Favorite track of all times?
Supertramp – Dreamer
Free Download: Alex Lamb – Obsessive (Original Mix)
