Despite the frugal outlet we’ve so far seen from Otto Knows, the aspiring Swede showcases yet again he’s a gifted producer, crammed with a certain indulgence for synth-driven beauties, as he makes his second release appearance ever, following on from last year’s iTrack and Loopede EP alongside Tim Berg (a.k.a Avicii) and Oliver Ingrosso. With the bodacious vocals of Cristina Soto yielding goosebumps like no other, the emotionally lusterous breakdown melody sets this production apart from the flood of tracks entering the digital stores lately as the track emerges dance-friendly and catchy, uplifting beats. Starting off his year of 2011 with the give-away of his gorgeous work on Hide and Seek, Otto Knows is truly becoming a notable producer lately thanks to gigs alongside Tiësto, hosting a guest mix on the second edition of Avicii’s monthly LE7ELS show and unveiling three new singles named Visa, Diz Diz and Million Voices. The producer from Sweden capital is now firing away his remix on Twisted Love, the original being made by world renowned ATB, via influential Kontor Records as part of the German’s Distant Earth Remixed album.
Coming on the heels on their instalment on Spinnin Records alongside Patric La Funk entitled Blizzard, Inpetto screens a brand-new remix contender for Germany-stationed ATB’s just released Distant Earth Remixed album, taking on a single from the man in question. Releasing the wildly underestimated remix on Dinka’s Violet single in early June, the German brothers behind successful remixes for David Guetta, Steve Angello and Fragma are coming together again to release the uplifting instrumentals to One More. Graced with a ravishing vocal from American Cristina Soto, One More is remixed into one of the headliner’s of this newly unleashed remix album as the duo’s Move single with Max C is in full swing at Cr2 towers.
The Swedish wunderkind corks up another dizzying setting of sounds, built upon a melody that originates from Yiruma’s original composition from 2001 and was later taken to the global club stage by Jasper Forks in early 2010. Bursting out of Sweden’s aspiring production scene last year with the three track EP on Joia, Alesso has come to gracefully outshine highly rated House icon’s in a bare year with his distinguished offerings. Having now reached utter eminence, the young shooting-star has, thanks to his hugely supported Dynamite and Nillionaire EP on Refune, become the centre of attention with a roster that includes the remixes on Party Rock Anthem, Pressure and Save The World. Not only is he accountable for some of the hottest club-bangers of 2011 out, but has also got a full-blown sleeve of recent hits like Calling with Sebastian Ingrosso and the newly released take on Good Love to name a couple. With a quality control to die for at his mercy, it’s been told his interpretation of River Flows In You is releasing this Fall. Just as one thought his dazzling powerhouse of an outlet could not enhance any further, the Alesso frenzy affects 2001’s gorgeous piano composition for a dance-friendly floor filler that is certain to break new barriers for the continued rise of Alesso. It’s has been rumoured to be releasing October 28th via Kontor Records, but we are still awaiting solid confirmation on that matter, have a listen!
