While the word ‘anthem’ is thrown about quite liberally within House music, few tracks have reigned as supreme on the grounds of nostalgic quality as the Robyn S classic ‘Show Me Love’. But while few have successfully reignited the flame of the soulful original, Eric Prydz emerges from one of his most poignant years of industrious activity with a forward thinking unofficial remake of the definitive 80’s club landmark.
Proving a staple element of his sets for more than a year, the second episode of his EPIC Radio podcast and last weekend’s appearance at BBC Radio One’s Hackney Weekend saw the emergence of a high quality cut of the infamous remodel. Driving a dark digression into the originals soulful properties, Prydz’s dark and hypnotic lead progressions are met with a cascaded climax of layered synths and strong melodic synths true to his renowned melodic persuasions. While the discordant sample work and heavyset climaxes may not be to the taste of those still infatuated with the good old days of American House music, Prydz confidently crafts ‘Show Me Love’ to fit his Progressive stylings whilst maintaining the timeless beauty of the track throughout.

Now, lets look at which tracks made the broad daylight this fine day! A collaboration between John Dahlback & Avicii has resulted in the name Jovicii, which is one of the guys behind one of the releases today! Featuring the great vocalist Andy P, they came up with an amazing track called Don’t Hold Back.
Steve Angello has finally decided to release his massive club-banger Knas which has been hyped for some time now. Anyhow, my guess is that it will be huge in the club department!
Robin S is, as I’m sure you’re aware of, a great singer and here she shows us once again why that’s being said! The Swedish DJ/producer Sebjak is the one behind the best melody accompanying this vocal.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s remix of Pump Up The Jam is finally out after a few Beatport mistakes. Anyhow, it’s the best version of this amazing track I’ve heard so far, expect this one to get played in the clubs, JUMP JUMP!
