Anyone who missed Dirty South and Thomas Gold’s first collaborative endeavour ‘Alive’ alongside Kate Elsworth had no excuse to let their triumphant return to the limelight pass over their heads. On the mark despite his considerable youth, fresh-faced Scandinavian Lenno bumps some perky middle-ground fuzz into the emotively charged anthem of universally collected talent for a sound remix of the already well-endowed original.

Taking a back seat to Lenno’s repporachable remodel, Brazilian duo Felguk make an overtly sudden transition from harrowing keys against Elsworth’s sensational to an overtly tedious outing of wobble-induced Electro House. Replacing its majestic emotive charm midway for a more adrenaline fuelled outing of this untimely Progressive House landmark, their efforts fail to live up the considerable standard set by ‘Bassive‘. Overall, the remix package sucessfully extends the second coming of this winning formula in Electronic elegance.

Whereas the original became 2012’s widely acclaimed follow-up to last year’s ‘Alive’, a diverse, two-piece remix package is now due to release through the Aussie DJ’s ever growing Phazing Records shortly, bringing further recognition to the permanent forces that are Dirty South and Thomas Gold. Following on from last year’s successful endeavors to become an essential asset to Finland’s fairly small Electronic Dance Music export, 17 year old Lenno gives ‘Eyes Wide Open’ an injection of his own, tailored take on French House, helping the latest Phazing single out to extend it’s already firm grasp on clubland. With Kate Elsworth’s silky smooth voice and an intricate chord progression at his mercy, Lenno prepares to make his debut on the Phazing imprint, giving further strength to his already promising rise upwards.

The Felguk and Lenno remixes of ‘Eyes Wide Open’ are due to be released on March 2nd via Phazing Records.

Those who have previously dismissed Australia’s hold on global Dance music obviously overlooked the master of Phasing and widely acclaimed floor filler Dirty South. As far as emotive and hard hitting anthems are concerned, his seminal 2011 anthem Alive was undoubtedly one of finest vocal offerings of 2011, uniting the talented master of Australian Progressive House with the country’s finest songstress to date and their phenomenal German peer Thomas Gold in a nod towards how Dance music should play out. With the latter preparing to drop his highly anticipated ‘Sing 2 Me’ on Axtone Records, the globe waited in awe for the follow-up to last years renowned outing of finely tuned club magic.

But those prayers have now been firmly answered. Laced with the divine studio etiquette that has seen the masterful Aussie producer flourish on the global club circuit, his return to Phazing alongside familiar stirring vocal accolade Kate Elsworth strikes with promising impact for the year ahead, with Thomas Gold’s renowned Progressive vibes establishing this as an early game changing offering from three of Electronic Dance Music’s most vital assets to date. Given the seal approval from none other than bonafide don of Electronic music Pete Tong on Radio 1, Eyes Wide Open not only marks Phasing’s sixth release, but one of the label’s most hotly anticipated offering to date.

While the Alive original and the Tommy Trash remix alike have garnered support from the very créme de la créme of Electronic Dance music, this Dirty South and Thomas Gold-favoured fan remix on behalf of Polish duo Blinders comes in a better time than any. With its follow-up, entitled Eyes Wide Open, having seen a recent premiere on Pete Tong and looking to release in less than two weeks, Alive continues to show no signs of descent as the pair primarily recognized for last year’s Summer contender So High alongside Bream and Max C come out with their official take to potentially kickstart proceedings for bright times ahead. As the original has been testamented to being something of a pioneer for a distinct face of progressive House, Blinders further build on this certified reputation with a set of outrightly massive lead play and large kicks to spot on complement the unique and silky voice of Kate Elsworth.

Following the immense success from their previous collaborative effort that is Alive, Dirty South, Thomas Gold and Kate Elsworth combine forces again for an as evenly impressive follow-up single. Reminiscent of its predecessor with the drop’s near to cacophonic chords, characteristic cut-off filters and an overall vividness in conjunction with a soothing and emotional break-down fitting flawlessly onto the silky voice of Sydney DJ and singer-songwriter Kate Elsworth, the follow-up to ‘Alive’, named Eyes Wide Open, is, whether it likes it or not, due to make wonders on the global charts. Fresh off the release of Walking Alone, ‘Eyes Wide Open’ is the sixth, top-notch single off Dirty South’s Phazing Records label thus far.

From the looks of previous efforts, the now Los Angeles residing Dirty South and Germany’s Thomas Gold seem to have found themselves combined making a perfect match as far as the fusion of their distinct signature sound goes. As to why the label head of Phazing, whose advancement in 2011 involves giving Skylar Grey’s Invisible and Coming Home some serious remix works, dropped in DJ Mag’s top 100 DJ’s poll this year in comparison to 2010 is yet to be answered since his discography to date consists of nothing short of spot-on Summer anthems. And as if one creative tunesmith in a track wasn’t enough, the man responsible for remixes the likes of Blow Up, Set Fire To The Rain, Lady Gaga’s Judas and Sander van Doorn’s Reach Out in 2011 as well as having the sought-after Sing2Me coming up on Axtone returns for his third Phazing installment, coming off ‘Alive’ and ‘Areena’.

‘Eyes Wide Open’ is due to release January 23rd.

The Alive original, released late July, is firmly considered one of 2011’s most conductive anthems with its notable sound dynamics and the silky vocals from Sydney-based beauty, Kate Elsworth. Still standing with both feet at the very heart of clubland, it was just a matter of time before this unprecedented banger was given the remix treatment. As a sample of the next single, Walking Alone, out of Phazing and Dirty South just surfaced, Dirty South and Thomas Gold welcome the outstanding Tommy Trash aboard the unequal march of Alive. Scorchingly hot off the back from the very recent releases of Future Folk and the remix on One Last Ride, the Australia-bred electro-house icon pulls out another punchy piece from the roaster. Having a squadron of releases this year, recurringly spun by the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Laidback Luke, Dirty South among many others, Trash remixes the cushy chords of Alive into a floor-destroying electro cut, promptly on its way towards the clubs. Coming off releases like The End and remixes on Falling Out Of Love and Edge Of The Earth, the seethingly warped beats of his latest offering waves the industry as it unremittingly now troops towards out from Phazing Records!
