The french producer Michael Calfan got his break-through in 2008 when Axwell made an edit of his track “Resurrrection”. Since then he has blessed us with tracks like “No man’s land”, “Let your mind go” and recently “Prelude”. Now he is back on Spinnin’ Records with a track called “Treasured Soul”. The track was one of the most popular tracks at ADE in Holland and it has also been played by Pete Tong himself on BBC Radio 1. “Treasured Soul” is out the 8th of december.

Avicii is working on a lot of new stuff these days, and soon a we will probably get a release date on his upcoming album called “Stories”. But right now he just released a track with Wyclef Jean, which will be on Wyclef’s upcoming album called “Clefication” and also on (RED) and Coca Cola’s Aids Free Generation album which supports aids research all over the world. Its called “Divine Sorrow” and has a lot of soul and emotions which is pretty rare these days.

The artist who has impressed me the most this year is Oliver Heldens and the dutch master is already back with a new track after the chart topping “Koala”. This time he has teamed up with Gregor Salto for a remix of Gregor himself and Dr. Kucho!. Their track “Can’t stop playing” from 2005 has gotten a new funky sound, inspired by the Heldens previous work. The remix is out the 29th of august on Spinnin’ Records.

It has been an amazing year for the Aussie duo New World Sound. With chart topping tracks like “The Buzz” and “Flute” already under their belt, it seems possible that their newest release “How To Twerk” could be the next in line. The build up has soulful vocals accompanied by some piano before the heavy-bass drop.

New World Sound – How To Twerk
The great dane, Mike Hawkins i doing very well for himself these days. The last month he has been touring the US and played a sold out show in front of 4000 people in Las Vegas as one of the highlights. Now he has joined forces with Jay Hardway, known from his collab with Garrix called “Wizard” and more recently a track called “Bootcamp”. “Freedom” is a potential Beatport chart topping track, with its “big room” sound and sharp synths. One thing is for sure, these two producers sees a very bright future ahead.

Deorro is in the mood for free banging tracks these days. Last week it was “Hit It”, this time it is the collab between him and the talented MAKJ called “READY!”. The two producers has for some time now been teasing about the track on their facebook and now its out for free, and as they call it, on Zippyshare Records.
When i heard Eric Prydz’s “EPIC Radio” episode 011, one track completely stood out. It was “Raveheart” by the Stockholm based producers named “Fasttrack & Maulen”. The track is an absolute stunner and sounds almost like it comes from Mr. Prydz himself. “Raveheart” is an amazing combination of progressive and trance that could get really big in the future.

One of the most anticipated albums in electronic music this year, is Porter Robinson’s debut album “Worlds”. The anticipation has only been building with singles from the album like “Sea Of Voices”, “Sad Machine”, “Lionhearted” and “Flicker”. And i can already say that the rest of the album is just as good as the singles. It is not EDM, its electronic music. Cause Porter wanted to do something different as he states; “EDM isn’t going anywhere that is inspiring”. Stream “Worlds” below ahead of the release the 12th of August.
