Few aspiring artists have risen with the same outright vigour as promising German contender Deniz Koyu. But back on remix duty after his heavily supported take on Zedd’s ‘Spectrum‘, the young fast-riser takes on the familiar stylings of Swedish-American indie pop trio Miike Snow for a signature remix of their latest album single, ‘Pretender’.

Utilising Andrew Wyatt’s blissful top line with lengthy pads, mesmerizing melodies and beautiful strings, Koyu lays down a formative number that may not top that of his Refune Records debut ‘Bong‘ but excels on the merits of style and consistency for this proud mark for European Dance music.

See it as a counterpart to the Axwell-approved Thomas Gold remix if you will, but Flight Facilities have never had any trouble in establishing themselves as an essential asset to the more ambient realms of Electronic music with little-to-no outside help. But in the same vein as the Miike Snow track, the Trinidad & Tobago production outfit’s take on ‘The Wave’ maintains the rhythmic drum work and soothing piano play of the original while giving the track a significantly more harmonic appeal to make this free giveaway all that more generous.

Miike Snow – The Wave (Flight Facilities Mix)

Having found himself at close calling with Axwell’s prestigious Axtone imprint, German Progressive pundit Thomas Gold musters yet more excitement on the countdown to his debut compilation for the label with his Pete Tong approved remix of Swedish Electro Pop outfit Miike Snow’s ‘The Wave’.

Amid the collection of original releases and label exclusives that ornament his forthcoming compilation, his remix duties for ‘The Wave’ excentuate Gold’s ability to contain melodic properties and fierce energy within one consolidated track. Relying on the originals distinct top line to drive the track towards its club-induced turning point, Gold’s signature stelar lead play and accomplished beat work make for an impressive first stab at the high-end remix for this rising European player. With a slew of European dates set to launch this landmark release, Germany has yet another reason to boast as far as its club minded assets are concerned.

Having accumulated a diverse discography of remixes for the likes David Guetta, Kaskade, Tiësto and The Temper Trap, Australian House pundit and Phazing head honcho Dirty South has become a vital tool in bridging the gaps within Electronic music’s ever-expanding sights. Taking on the recently inaugurated powerhouse that is Miike Snow fresh from their second studio album, the LA based producer turns his steady ear to the realms of Swedish Pop with intrinsic style for his remix of ‘Devil’s Work’.

Feeding heavily off Andrew Wyatt’s unmistakable top line and the originals abrupt piano progressions, the formative House master crafts a memorable revamp as aptly suited for the club as it is the Beatport charts. Substantially heavy-set and increasingly melodic, this is a standard setting offering for both Miike Snow and the powerful Australian remixer.

Outside of his role within Sweden’s elite House export, there is something unchallengeable about the consistent force of Axwell and his dignified imprint. Carrying forward the definitive hallmarks now associated with Axtone’s frequently groundbreaking and often replicated sound scope, Swedish Indie Pop peers Miike Snow are on hand with another formidable top line at the mercy of German Progressive force and forthcoming compilation maestro Thomas Gold.

While infectious synth play and distinct drops of intense attitude remain at the heart of this imprint’s perfected craft, their familiar German contributor certainly knows how to cater for a label that is proving something of a comfortable home-from-home to this high-ranking European House perfectionist of impressive peak time persuasion. On the back of solo endeavour ‘Sing2Me’ and further international exploits for the tectonic German House asset, his remix of ‘The Wave’ sets the standard for club-minded remix duties to an all time high amid Thomas Gold’s ongoing ascent to universal adoration.

Update: The Thomas Gold remix of ‘The Wave’ will be released on May 14 via Axtone Records.
