Black Coast – Sleep Alone ft. Soren Bryce

With certain releases lacking a bit of depth and soul this summer, it is so refreshing to hear something that is full of flavour and depth. That is certainly the case for the new one from New York based producer Black Coast, who has just released “Sleep Alone” via Ultra Music.

There is a melting, expressive theme to this tune, and with the talented Soren Bryce on vocal duty, an almost magical energy is created. With well placed drumming, an expansive melody and those dreamy tones of Bryce, “Sleep Alone” is unmissable listen.

Mind Electric – Praise You (+ Remixes)

Hamburg based producer Mind Electric returns to heavyweight dance label Vicious Recordings this week, putting his own unique twist on Fatboy Slim’s seminal classic “Praise You”.

It may have been a while since you’ve heard the 1998 number one hit single, but these fresh new remixes will certainly be one for the speakers over the next few weeks – and each featured artist here has done a great job.

Mind Electric’s own sees the producer enriching those powerful vocals with vibrant piano chords and a rhythmically charged bass line, and he gives the tune bite and texture. Other stellar contributors include Asino, Apocalypto and Filterkat, who all lend their talents to the EP.

Lost Frequencies – Beautiful Life (Remixes)

Following the global success of “Are You With Me” and “Reality”, Lost Frequencies hit the world with “Beautiful Life” last month’, the first single off his debut album.

Now Ultra Music/Armada have teamed up to deliver you two killer remixes of the feel-good anthem of the summer. Erick Morillo’s dazzling rework comes first, taking Sandro Cavazza’s dreamy vocals from the original and adding peak-time deep house progressions, to make for a perfect thrilling Ibiza-styled musical spectacle.

This is closely followed by ANGEMI, who brings things down to earth a little with his more stripped back, twinkling tropical affair.

“Beautiful Life” continues to confirm the ambitious young producer’s huge talent, and signalling to the rest of the world that Lost Frequencies will soon be both a titan in the deep house community. Grab the remixes here.

Helena Legend – The Giant [Free Download]

Helena Legend drops suitably explosive new single ‘The Giant’ this week, and it is sure to gather plenty of attention. This one is a purely instrumental, driving piece of progressive house, and one that will undoubtedly get spun at numerous festivals in the coming weeks.

With an electrifying bass line and a steadily driving pattern of pitch-bending synths, Helena Legend will delight fans with this free download. The LA based queen of dance music says of the track, “I worked on ‘The Giant’ about a year ago and wanted to release it before the end of the 2015, but I was working on other music and it just never saw the light of day… Until now! I decided it was time to unleash the beast!”

Tackling electronic dance floors head on, Helena Legend’s new sound can be got from here.

Filatov & Karas – Satellite

Released this week through Ultra Music comes the latest collaborative single from Russian production team Filatov & Karas. They have been wowing with recent remixes, and impressing A&R at the likes of Universal and Warner Music – but have come out with something special and original.

“Satellite” has just dropped, and it comes packed with melodic counterpoints and a driving beat. With some seriously smooth pop vocals taking the lead here, there is a solid house theme going on from start to finish here, whipping those riffs into shape and ensuring this one is super catchy.
