Fast approaching the fold of a year that has given rise to the voice of Australia’s Georgi Kay, round two of Promised Land’s ‘Emotions’ receives a firm European overhaul of remix duties for Atlantic offshoot Big Beat.

Given a surge of delicate melodic builds and fuzzing Electro leads, Musical Freedom’s own Mikael Weermets matches his Swedish peer John Dahlback’s offering with a bold display sharp keys and ferocious synth work, leaving Italian duo Master Mood to bring typically low-end Electro hallmarks and dotted samples to the original. Leaning towards the realms of peak time club fuel that has characterized the summer clubbing season throughout, this Swede heavy package successfully shows the more heavyset potential behind Kay’s unmistakable vocal stylings.

Sweden’s stadium-filling powerhouse Swedish House Mafia have always been full of surprises. But in the aftermath of hitting #1 on the UK charts, their sixth and final single ”Don’t You Worry Child” receives a slew of remixes by an unexpected assortment of producers from across the spectrum.

On hand with swift drum work and raw energy that may lack the vocal opulence of the original but excels on the merits of invigorating energy, hotly tipped British duo Tom Staar and Kryder lay down a formative headline number of the single, with Promise Land’s remix blending wobbles and persistent misshapen chord play. But where the two aforementioned remixes touch on the energetic vibes now synonymous with the Swedish trio, Joris Voorn rounds off the three-piece package with a turn for the unexpected, choosing to chop John Martin’s heartwarming vocals into a soothing Tech House formula.

Update (29/10): The remixes are now available on iTunes and Spotify.



Following up on the Tom Staar and Kryder remix, Swedish House Mafia’s ”Don’t You Worry Child” receives a fresh second coat of paint for 2012 courtesy of Promise Land. As debuted by Steve Angello at Size In The Park last month, the Italy duo continue their successive spree of stern yet melodic club offerings with a wobbly take on the trio’s sixth and last single release.

Utilizing the original tracks standout vocal assets courtesy of John Martin and injecting a thorough dose of persistent misshapen chord play to the equation, Nazario Pelusi and Fabio Ranucci set the tone ahead of their upcoming Size Records single ‘Heroes’ with stadium-worthy substance.

Release date is yet to be announced.

Coming off the highly supported ‘Miami 305 Mix’, Promise Land and Georgi Kay’s ‘Emotions’ returns for round two with the unreleased original mix and a slew of remixes from John Dahlback, Mikael Weermets and Master Mood.

While John Dahlback’s paint by numbers approach to Dance music leads to a bass-heavy leading remix from the Swedish heavyweight, Musical Freedom-approved Mikael Weermets fuses soothing piano play and gritty leads for something of a signature take on the Promise Land original. Diving deeper into the realms of Electro House, Italy duo Master Mood bring their heavy-hitting sound alongside Kay’s graceful top line before rounding things off with Promise Land’s own, synth-laden original mix.

Out November 6th on Big Beat Records.

Already proving to be a year of uprising international talent Costa Rica’s Bartosz Brenes and rising French artist Tony Romera take on the Dirty Dutch head honcho Chuckie’s vocal summer outing alongside Promise Land ‘Breaking Up’. Utilising Amanda Wilson’s distinct top line with a string of equally emotive keys, the multinational duo lead with killer riffage and grinding Electro hallmarks throughout this high-profile remix. While there may be no shortage of Electro House on offer for the summer season, the duos take on ‘Breaking Up’ is indicative of the quality such fresh faced artists can bring to global Dance music.

It features the likes of Gregori Klosman’s ‘Minibar‘, Wolfgang Gartner’s ‘Flexx‘, Joe Garston’s ‘Forever‘ and 7Tales ‘Euphoria’ among others.

In the grand scheme of promising Dutch talents, Nicky Romero has exceeded all expectations and eclipsed the majority of his homeland peers in the process. Racking up collaborations alongside the likes of Avicii, David Guetta, Fedde Le Grand and further studio time with Tiësto, his explosion into 2012 has beckoned consistent efforts left right and centre. Having donned his ear to more mainstream offering ‘Wild One Two’ alongside Guetta and Sia, taking on Kelly Clarkson’s epic voice was nothing too unexpected from the converted club aficionado. Laced with sterling acid drops and first-class utilisation of one of the more dexterous voices on the modern pop market, his lacing of intricate piano play and solid beats makes for music to the ears of those less enthusiastic about EDM’s more commercial avenue.

Backing up Romero’s sizeable leading remix, Italian duo Promise Land follow-up a healthy dose of affirmative action for 2011 with their own acidesque take on the unconventional Pop princesses well-ornamented offering. Swapping the original’s uninspiring lucid instrumentals for fist pumping moments and remorseless bass riffage, their imposition upon ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ and the ultimately ardent force of Sony Music is not an offensive one, but a promising nod to a future of impeccable transitional pieces for the musical stylings of Nazario Pelusi and Fabio Ranucci.

Somewhat alike the recently previewed Nicky Romero remix in its smooth instrumentals to supplement the sing-along vocals from American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s latest single, Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You), the remix package addition from Nazario Pelusi and Fabio Ranucci, who make up DJ and production duo Promise Land, also unfolds a significant dose of fierce acid. Though breaking through in mid 2009 with an under-rated remix duty for ‘Leave The World Behind’ alongside Provenzano, it was not until late 2010 and the outing of a certain remake of Reder8’s ‘Amazing’, which saw essential and recurrent plays from the Swedish House Mafia amongst many others, that clubland witnessed the inception of the two Italians as Promise Land.

Following installments on Dirty Dutch, Mutants, Ultra, Atlantic, Flamingo and Smash The House this year, Pelusi and Ranucci prepare their debut on internationally renowned Sony Music and their first release of 2012 with growling bass riffs and hints of fist-pump friendly chords injected into Kelly Clarkson’s pop original.

The remixes of ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ are released January 9th
