Bringing club music to the global airwaves yet again, Scottish chart-hopper Calvin Harris teams up alongside London songstress Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine for the release of the fifth single from his upcoming third studio album, “18 Months,” alongside an unexpected assortment of remixes of old school spirit and new school edge alike.

Somewhat more reminiscent of the original Dance icon that set ablaze the Olympic Games in Athens back in 2004 with a display of Trance wizardry than his output over the past year, the headline remix of ‘Sweet Nothing’ sees Tiësto utilise Florence’s vocal line with a mix of Trance and his more recent grasp on the Housier side of affairs. In a similar vein, Size-endorsed Swedish duo Qulinez showcases blistering chord play and synth-led opulence, leaving enough room for London producer Burns to round off the package in a far more inventive manner, complementing Welch’s angelic voice with an easygoing two-step rhythm.

Joining the ranks of Tiësto, Size-endorsed Swede duo Qulinez continue their onslaught of remixes for the masses with a take on Calvin Harris and Florence Welch’s upcoming single, ‘Sweet Nothing‘.

Given an exclusive spin on last night’s Danny Howard show for BBC Radio 1, Alexander Lager and Johannes Gustafsson ditch their heavier-set sound for a 128BPM breeze over Florence’s ethereal top line. Utilising the original’s blistering chord play with euphoric builds and synth-led opulence, Qulinez’s return to remix duties may lack in originality, but excels on the merits of uplifting Progressive energy.

Out October 14th.

As a blazing beacon of first-rate contributions to global Dance music, Tiësto’s watchful gaze over the realms of his craft has seen him remain relevant across the entirety of his seventeen-year recording career. But back on remix duty after taking on the likes of The Naked & Famous, Coldplay and Gotye alike, Tijs Verwest puts his own twist on Calvin Harris and Florence Welch’s upcoming single, ‘Sweet Nothing‘.

Somewhat more reminiscent of the original Dance icon that set ablaze the Olympic Games in Athens back in 2004 with a display of Trance wizardry than his output over the past year, Tiësto’s take on ‘Sweet Nothing’ carry’s on a mixture of Trance and his more recent grasp on the Housier side of affairs. Utilising Welch’s ethereal voice with euphoric builds and constructive melodic play, Tiësto’s latest remix is sure to be something of a treat to those still reeling in the memories of his Trance-orientated heyday.

Out October 14 alongside the original and further remixes from Qulinez, Burns and Dirtyloud.

While his productions may sit on the radio-friendlier side of global Dance music, his watchful gaze over the realms of his craft has seen him remain as relevant as ever. Bringing club music to the airwaves yet again (and vice versa), Calvin Harris teams up alongside London songstress Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine to present the fifth single from his upcoming third studio album.

Pitting Florence’s emotively charged top line alongside Harris’ infectious synth work, ‘Sweet Nothing’ plays further testament to the increasingly popular crossover of two now not so different sides of Electronic music and should make for some pretty interesting remix opportunities.

‘Sweet Nothing’ will be released October 14 along with remixes from Tiësto, Qulinez, Burns and Dirtyloud.

Update: The official music video is now released.

There has been something in the vocal stylings of Florence Welch that has continued to inspire the ranks of Dance music’s finest remixers. But for latest single ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’, Florence and the Machine receive a sturdy injection of modern Dance charm from two very contrasting figureheads amid the global House explosion.

Now something of a connoisseur in the overlap of vintage electro and modern pop music, Calvin Harris brings that uplifting club floor charm with little compromise on the original. While reminiscent of Avicii’s infamous mash up, Harris holds his ground with a divine collection of emotive leads that engage the tracks club capabilities seamlessly.

While few could play down the strong sense of underground pride that Maya Jane Coles has spun throughout her timely reign on the floor, ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’ is maybe one of the least expected avenues for the renowned Deep House evangelist. Fusing deep and haunting melodic surges with delicate yet insatiable grooves, the British talent successfully breaths a little unfamiliar energy into this unsuspecting modern pop hit.

Florence & The Machine – Spectrum (Say My Name) (Maya Jane Coles Remix)

Words by Dan Carter

There has been something in the vocal styling’s of Florence Welch that has continued to inspire the ranks of EDM’s finest remixers. With a track record for chart-worthy cuts as strong as his impending reign as the master of the Fly Eye imprint, Scottish House enthusiast Calvin Harris turns his hand on the familiar ‘Spectrum’ for its a formal transition from the pop charts to the dance floor.

Treading respectfully over the immediately engaging top line that has shaped Welch as one of the UK’s finest vocal assets for a good decade, Harris breaths a firm yet melodically refined chunk of club-worthy charm into this undisputedly emotive anthem. While reminiscent of Avicii’s infamous mash-up alongside his David Guetta collaboration ‘Sunshine’, Harris breaths notable life into this official remix duty for genre and artist alike. Without bending to the ranks of grinding Electro House or peak time Progressive House, the subtle yet skilfully crafted backdrop shines an inherently positive light on Harris’s ability to balance the relationship between pop music and the dance floor with stimulating consistency.

The Calvin Harris remix will be released on July 9.
