Having already executed three successful releases on the label over the past couple of years, Russian duo Hard Rock Sofa are back at Axtone Records for round four with ‘Rasputin’ – an homage to the late Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin.

Rich in pulsing bass and the raw energy that they have become synonymous with, ‘Rasputin’ sheds further light on Hard Rock Sofa’s uncanny ability to produce festival-friendly tracks. Despite falling outside of the melodic hallmarks more commonly associated with Axtone, ‘Rasputin’ follows in the footsteps of ‘Wakanda’ and marks yet another bulletproof release for Axtone from the heavier side of Dance music.

Other Axtone releases set for release in the near future include an unreleased version of Discopolis’ ‘Committed To Sparkle Motion’ and Marcus Schössow’s ‘Reverie’.

No stranger to remix duties, Holland’s R3hab unites with Russian Axtone favorites Hard Rock Sofa to put their twist on the Feed Me-produced next single from Example’s latest studio album.

Showing off their dexterity for the coarser side of club fuel, their first collaborative production sits on the slightly heavier side of their studio outputs over the past year. Leaping from chugging Electro House to heavy melodic play, the gritty energy of their take on ‘Perfect Replacement’ make for as unpretentious of a remix as one could have hoped for from a collaboration of this calibre.

Already boasting instalments on Axtone Records and Size Records, Hard Rock Sofa ticks off yet another of the acclaimed Swedish imprint with a strong label debut on Sebastian Ingrosso’s Refune Records in the form of a remix for Alesso’s ‘Years‘.

Building around the original’s instantly recognizable piano play and Matthew Koma’s familiar vocals, the Russian duo brings the burly Electro House vibes that have sealed their name to the big-time with notable success. Croaking bass and swift chord work take a u-turn on the original track’s relatively consumer-safe aura, packing a well-deserved punch into this popular radio- and club anthem.

No strangers to high-profile remix duties, Hard Rock Sofa and Nicky Romero’s next dance with the devil better known as commercial pop comes in the form of remixes for Ludacris’ new single alongside Usher and David Guetta.

While the Russian duo take ‘Rest Of My Life’ through the motions of uplifting melodics and their signature Electro House, Romero wraps up the package with a ‘Point Blank‘-like remix far more convincing than that of the original version.

Where Russian duo Hard Rock Sofa has rapidly become something of a household name in the ranks of high-end remix duties, their next dance with the devil better known as commercial pop comes in the form of a take of Ludacris’ new single alongside Usher and David Guetta.

Leaping from uplifting synth work to a grinding Electro House affair, Hard Rock Sofa’s official remix of ‘Rest Of My Life’ makes for a version far more convincing than that of the American pop assets.

Release date to be confirmed.

On the heels of the original release as part of “Nothing But The Beat 2.0,” David Guetta and Taped Rai’s “Just One Last Time” receives a slew of remixes courtesy of Dutch heavyweight Tiësto, Refune-approved German contender Deniz Koyu and Russia’s Hard Rock Sofa.

While the acclaimed Dutch icon extends his melodic charm with a key-driven take on the original that ascends into his notably uplifting play book, Koyu goes in a similar vein as last year’s ‘Dangerous’ remix alongside Johan Wedel to replace the instrumental work of ‘Just One Last Time’ with his signature chugging synth leads and soothing interludes. With their ‘big room’ remix sitting comfortably at #1 on Beatport, the Russian trio round out the package with a slightly more melodic version of their chart-topping take.

Having extended their reach to the wider industry and airwaves alike for 2012, Swanky Tunes employ fellow Russian dignitaries Hard Rock Sofa and Matisse & Sadko to make the second mark on their Showland imprint with ‘Chemistry (Turn The Flame Higher)’. Premiered by Hardwell during his Hardwell On Air radio show, ‘Chemistry’ packs a suitably sharp array of heavyset synths and peak time beats for a track powerful enough to match the title’s ironic narcotic referencing. Accompanied by a drug orientated video with an entertaining twist, this collective effort plays on the high-end of modern club culture with a very topical focus, providing one of the most powerful insights into Russia’s impending House overhaul to date.
