With a discography that has always stood out from the crowd behind him, Michael Woods is back on full effect for his first single of 2013, following up on 2011’s successful ‘Full Access’ EP with another strong release for Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records.

Fleeting in and out of the signature synth work that has characterised Woods’ transition from The Warrior to a landmark British club asset, ‘Platinum Chains’ makes for a sound contender for the soundtrack to one of the Dance industry’s most important yearly events, better known as Miami Music Week.

Out today on Beatport.

At the tail end of a year that has spelt globetrotting, an Essential Mix debut and an Axtone compilation, Thomas Gold makes his Fly Eye Records debut with his fifth and final single of the year, ‘MIAO’.

A staple in his sets over the past year, ‘MIAO’ combines growling low-end riffage and piercing leads with melodic breakdown segments and scattered vocal chants. Comfortably setting the tone ahead of his upcoming official remix of OneRepublic’s ‘Feel Again‘, Gold adds yet another strong original track to his back catalogue en route to 2013.

At the tail end of a year that has spelt globetrotting, an Essential Mix debut and an Axtone compilation, Thomas Gold makes his Fly Eye Records debut with his fourth and final single of the year in ‘MIAO’.

A staple in his sets over the past year, ‘MIAO’ combines growling low-end riffage and piercing leads with melodic breakdown segments and scattered vocal chants. Comfortably setting the tone ahead of his upcoming official remix of OneRepublic’s ‘Feel Again‘, Gold would struggle to find a more promising first release on the record label of Calvin Harris.

Out December 25th.

On the grand scale of Russia’s House-minded enthusiasts, Hard Rock Sofa remains a leading mark of quality for the awakening Dance nation. Off the heels of their chart-topping third single for Axtone ‘Here We Go‘, the duo touch the industry skyline with a melodically charged debut for Calvin Harris’s Fly Eye label.

Infectious lead work and hands in the air moments aside, this single of consistent energy from the outset marks a notable peak in the duos Beatport Savvy output. While uplifting peak timers may be in the abundance for 2012, the quavering synths and rhythmic drum work of ‘Starlight’ make way for further believes that the Russian duo are proving more proficient at embodying the energy of the global Dance explosion with every single.

Hard Rock Sofa – Starlight

Words by Dan Carter

With their recently released third coming to Axwell’s Axtone Records, ‘Here We Go‘, topping the charts, Hard Rock Sofa return to the more melodic realms of Dance music for their debut installment on Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records. Built with the bigger festival speakers close to mind, the burly low-end surges and euphoric lead play make for one of the more peruasive peak timers of the season. Where their recent releases sit on the heavier side of Hard Rock Sofa’s studio output over the past few years, the quavering synths and rhythmic drum work of ‘Starlight’ continue to showcase the Russian duo’s affinity for versatility while matching that of Calvin Harris’ sense for what’s a hit and what’s not for a triumphant first appearance on Fly Eye.

‘Starlight’ will be released July 30 on Fly Eye Records.

Update: Official preview now available

Somewhere between the ground-breaking remix on Deadmau5 and Chris Lake’s ‘I Said’ in early 2010 and the recent release of Last Day On Earth has clubland seen Michael Woods dibble his name firmly on the list of England’s finest. He comes off an abundance of success, although the amount of recognition is still not filling his quota, including the production request for Example’s lead single off of his third artist album, which he so gracefully accomplished. Now, a mere year after the release of No Access for the re-launch of his own Diffused label, Woods unveils its very official follow-up, entitled Full Access, coming up in a two-piece EP on Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records. Similar to its predecessor, Full Access contains Woods’ mighty signature synth lines, a soothing interlude and smashing kickdrums and is therefor crowned the head of the Fly Eye EP that also consists of Let The Games Begin – a darker track with far less intricate build-ups in its consistent and brutal appeal.

The ‘Full Access’ EP is out now via Fly Eye Records.

Following up the vastly supported release of Awooga in March, the record label of Calvin Harris comes out with a new, fluctating single offering. This time, from the producer behind one of 2011’s probably most recognized club-bangers – the remix of Green Velvet’s Flash. As he’s strongly emerging Toolroom Records with the trenchant Freaky single alongside Fedde Le Grand in the bag, Nicky Romero instals himself on Fly Eye Records with the exotic and simple, yet catchy sounds of Camorra. Being an essential striker of Spinnin Records and all its sub-departments thanks to the three acrimonious single releases that are Bootcamp, Sliced and Keyword as well as a bunch of top notch remixes, the name of the Dutchman has gone viral across clubland along with himself surfing the wave of massive success that has been brought upon him. Also responsible for delivering a solid frontier for the remix package of Where Them Girls At by David Guetta, the spotlight turns into favour of the bumpy underwork of Camorra that is now out!
