Under the guise of his bleep-happy studio alias Clockwork, Henry Steinway steps up to release his new two-track EP for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records titled ‘Surge’.

With titanic surges of bass in full effect, title track ‘Surge’ takes the lead with resonant synth work and chugging Electro House builds alongside the voice of self-professed dirty talker Wynter Gordon. On the flip, ‘Tremor’ extends on the wizardry that pervaded his remix of Congorock’s ‘Bless Di Nation’ for an equally stellar B-side of his signature misshapen chord play.

Out today on Beatport and Spotify.

Lucas van Scheppingen has never been one to shy away from the unexpected. Between his chart-worthy assets and a successive reign of genre-defining club anthems alongside the likes of Steve Angello, Sander Van Doorn and Lil Jon, his quirky approach to the genre has earned him merits across the globe.

But one year in the waiting, Laidback Luke joins the self-professed dirty talker turned pop/dance visionary Wynter Gordon, who not so long ago could be found writing songs for JLO and Mary J Blige, to make a sizeable dent in the realms of the Urban crossover. Still brandishing the same abrupt pitch-puzzled leads and robust sampling we associate with the Dutchman, a divine line from the leading lady Gordon marks an intrinsically well-orientated outing on the back of her popular release alongside Steve Aoki. From the outset of ‘Speak Up’s delicate melodic builds and its deeply euphoric synth charges, there is an element of the familiar that may not ring to every distinguished House aficionados tastes. But in an age where Simon Cowell desires to subject DJs to the reality TV treatment, this offering remains a positive nod to those still making formative marks on the industry.

Having seen his somewhat monotone signature drops fuel his name to regularly appear in the live sets of electronic dance music aristocrats like Swedish House Mafia and Tiësto among others throughout last year, the new year has thus far shown this Aussie’s true versatility and so it seems to continue as the now London-based Thomas Olsen, professionally known as Tommy Trash, releases his new remix for Steve Aoki. With significantly more visible influences from the Progressive house scene, this top-notch take on the hard-lined original of ‘Ladi Dadi’, featuring Wynter Gordon on the vocal duty, holds a considerably more gentle appeal as opposed to his fierce predecessors yet with a tad of that robust Trash sound and some heavy-stepping kicks still in the equation.
