In an attempt to follow up their widely underrated remix of Those Usual Suspects’ ‘Give It To Me‘, Liverpool duo Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala continue their onslaught of synth-laden remixes with a freshly released second installment on Onelove Recordings. Taking on the duty of remodelling Aussie sixsome Dirty Laundry’s ‘We Could Be One’, Whelan & Di Scala’s approach beckons that exact stadium-esque magic that the industry has continued to appraise them for. Lacing their characteristic, blissful leads on delicately layered melodies, their latest Onelove release may not top that of their aforementioned label debut but continues to flaunt their affinity for the Progressive realms of Dance music in yet another apt summer contender on their behalves.

Returning to Roger Sanchez’ Stealth Records following up the release of ‘French Rules‘, Sebastien Drums combines forces with Liverpool duo Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala for ‘Here I Come’. Where both Drums and the two Brits are mainly recognized by their more synth-laden offerings, ‘Here I Come’ sees the three wander a bit outside of their comfort zone for a considerably heavier production, also featuring Dutch vocalist Mitch Crown. Combining Crown’s characteristic voice and emotive chords with robust and distorted electro house, this French-British trio continues to make headway with this solid, Axwell-approved contribution to the ever-expanding industry of electronic dance music.

Liverpool may have had its day in terms of Dance music’s potted history, but the Mersey’s latest emerging House talents WhelanDi Scala have definitely made some positive noise between their hometown and the White Isle. Stepping back on track to take on fellow Liverpudlian Dada’s collaborative effort ‘Make You Feel’ alongside Surrey’s Mat Frost, the duo proves themselves aptly capable of extending the UK’s promising musical manoeuvres.

Still led by an entourage of sharp keys and stern beats, Whelan & Di Scala’s distinct lead play proves the winning factor in extending the originals already notable energy. Set to provide the summer season in Ibiza with a series of exclusive boat parties, this is yet another promising indicator that the UK is still hosting some formidable new talent.

Riding on the remnants of their highly underestimated remix for Those Usual Suspects’ Give It To Me, this up-and-coming Liverpool duo are further proving their worth as a talented production pair of synth-tinged and well-crafted offerings as they now up the ante for another promising outing. Seeing recurrent support and plays from the stellar protégé of Axtone, Thomas Gold, the new single from Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala entitled ‘The Fox’ holds just the right amount of potential to be able to gun for a top positioning on the charts upon its sought-after release. Embracing some perfectly pitched synths, dominant bass lines and noteworthy percussions, ‘The Fox’ is 2012’s second testament to the potential of these Liverpool producers.

Since setting standards to an all-time-high with collaborations alongside the likes of Avicii and Norman Doray, French House pundit Sebastien Drums has had the gruelling task of maintaining the consistency of his earlier breakthroughs. Successive remixes for David Guetta and further stints for Roger Sanchez’s Stealth Records imprint suggest that instead of ducking behind the big time guise, Sébastien Aumiphin has backed the hype with a proven dexterity for moment-making club anthems both on his own terms and alongside the industry’s finest. Joining the renowned Dutch voice box behind Fedde Le Grand’s ‘Running’ Mitch Crown, the duo deploy an emotive banger of momentous moments and heartrending melodic play make for a proud notch in both aspiring star’s discographies.

Proving that relations between Britain and the peers over the pond aren’t so strained anymore, Liverpool’s own Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala hammer home a proud instalment of rich melodic trinkets and beefy kicks to mark yet more positive noise from the more subtle side of the European House explosion. Exceeding the original as far as backbone and energy is concerned, their remix brightens an already shining package for Spinnin Records and this affirmative collection of eclectic studio talents.

Though Great Britain has become strongly synonymous with a top shelf export within the tech-house scene, the Liverpool based duo that are Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala have proven there is still room for an unprecedented production pair to bring justice and recognition to England’s progressive House export. Having bagged a remix duty for Avicii and a signing to Spinnin Records with the recently unveiled The Fox, Whelan and Di Scala seem to have fortune and potential at their mercy as they now uncover a remix for Sebastien Drums‘ upcoming second single release in 2012 – ‘Fly Again’. Adding to the catchy vocals on behalf of Fedde Le Grand favourite Mitch Crown and the original’s rather simple arrangements, this remix unfolds a richly melodious, synth-filled topline and a set of well-oiled and powerful kicks to make up the “B” side of this upcoming package.

‘Fly Again’ is set to release February 20th via Spinnin Records.
