At the age of only 17, he has already played at places like Summerburst and Creamfields, now the young swede Jakob Liedholm is back with his first original, in almost a half year. The track is called “Wishes” and is a signature proggressive production from Liedholm. It features a banging bassline, and a great rolling snare drum in the buildup. “Wishes” shows Liedholms great melodic touch, and why he has a bright future in the EDM scene. What is even better, he decided to give “Wishes” away for free!

Chris Malinchak has really created a big name for himself, throughout the last year, especially with his chart – topping track “So Good To Me”. The track was selected as “The Essential New Tune” by Pete Tong who really loves his style. His new track “Call My Name” will grow on you, and has, like Malinchak’s earlier work, those feel – good vibes that really helps on a cold and cloudy november day. The track features smooth sampled vocals, that really makes this a trademark track from him and it certainly lives up to all of Malinchak’s previous tracks. As a very early Christmas present, the track is out for free download on his souncloud page! So sit back, relax and listen to the king of good vibes.

I added Syn Cole’s upcoming remix of Avicii’s chart topping “Hey Brother” for you, so take a break and listen to one of the future stars, Syn Cole!

Newtunes is the alias of the Danish house trio consisting of the three youngsters, Benjamin Linneberg Bentsen, Frederik Møller Sørensen and Frederik Johannes Beder. Benjamin and Frederik Beder have been friends for a long time, and nearly 4 years ago, Frederik Sørensen joined the guys and the group was born. In an age of 17, Newtunes participated in their very first remix competition. Their remix of the electro and soul diva, Ida Corr’ ‘’Musen efter Katten’’ won the competition without any doubt. A half year later Ida Corr released a greatest hits album including the smash hit ‘’Let Me Think About It’’ and ‘’Give It To Me’’ which has been produced by the Newtunes boys as well. The label behind Ida Corr signed with the guys and their first track was released in March. Newtunes is currently ready with their second track to be released December the 2nd called “Stars In The Night” together with the talented David Cueto and with vocals from Paul Aiden, known from Morten’s latest single “Look Closer”. Stream “Stars In The Night” ahead of the release and another track called “Your Lies” while you get up to speed with the Newtunes boys below!

Tell us about ’’Stars In The Night’’ and the story behind the track.
“Stars In The Night” is the follow up to our first track, “’Your Lies’”. The success on our first track was quite overwhelming. We got some pretty kickass remixes, much airplay and the streams on Spotify have just reached 115k. We have been learning for the last 6 months and we definitely think ‘”Stars In The Night” is much stronger than “Your Lies” on every parameter. David Cueto remixed “Your Lies” and we immediately went to the studio with him. We made the sketch on “Stars In The Night” and a couple months later Sirena (known from this years Summerburst anthem, ‘’Tonight’’ with Galavant) has done an amazing topline. We discovered the British singer and songwriter, Paul Aiden who has previously worked with artists such as Yves V, Kim Fai and Morten. Paul liked the track and recorded the vocal in a few hours. “Stars In The Night” will be released on Lifted House, that is distributed by Disco:wax/Sony Music. The remixes to be announced in 2014.
What keeps you going on a daily basis?
We just think we are some regular boys but with a fear of a regular daily routine. We have ambitions, visions and big dreams about becoming superstar dj’s, the new everyday heroes. Music is the one thing in the whole world we love the most, and to create something big is just the meaning of life in our opinion. Music is our drug. We are addicts. Though we never forget that all of this is just fun.
Which things in this world inspire you the most?
Other people’s energy, motivation and success are the greatest power. To see other people living our dream is the biggest confirmation on this is possible to achieve. It is quite a cliché to claim that the everyday life and everything is our inspiration, and we do not really agree with that statement. When you live in Denmark, up north and snow and low temperatures do not really boost our creativity. We are more attracted by more southern longitudes. But it is nice to have about 6 months to sit inside the studio without missing any tan.
Which artist would make you most “starstrucked”?
We actually do not see ourselves as anything at all, so we would probably be starstrucked meeting nearly any artist. We like hearing many different kinds of music so we got many different idols. We are very fascinated by the Norwegian Stargate. They have a major imprint on the whole sound of modern music and their story is just the most motivating thing. Though we respect these guys very much, we would not really be a great match working with such musicians. Swedish House Mafia will be our all time biggest source of inspiration. In our opinion Axwell is one of the greatest producers on this planet. To be realistic we would be most starstrucked meeting or work with the Danish king of electronic music, Morten.
Any plans for the future?
We have not released music for a period of time. We are still young and have a lot to learn. For the next few months we are going to work with a lot of projects laying on our hard drives. We also strive to get more gigs in Copenhagen, but for now we just look forward to release our next track, “Stars In The Night” and our remix on Blasterjaxx’s track called “Faith”.
Mike Hawkins and Toby Green are back for another big collab. Coming straight off their latest release with Henry Fong ‘Hot Steppa’, the danes release ‘We Got This’. And they really got it. Both artists have had a big year with tracks such as ‘Revival’, ‘Bangover’ and ‘Jump’. ‘We Got This’ combines Mike Hawkins’ sense of melody with a hard hitting signature drop from Toby Green. It is a complete track. It has got a beautiful melodic part with a huge build-up towards the massive drop. This track will without any doubt be another Beatport-charter. Jordy Dazz and Quintino have showed early support.

Anjunabeats own Andrew Bayer release his new 2-track EP titled Pearth / Mirth Mobile on Beatport.

This was expressed in full on his latest EP, where especially the superb track ”England” stood out.

CRNKN (pronounced Crankin’) have remixed Wave Racers “Rock U Tonite” into an amazing melodic piece, which is very hard to put into a specific genre as it uses elements from both house, trap and jersey club music. Much like Carnage, CRNKN recently announced that he would no longer only focus on trap music, as he has love for so much more genres than only trap. I think this track shows the first step in that transition very well! And as a bonus, this track is offered for free through DIE HIGH Records!

After being quiet for a while Size Records is back with a new release from the Italian duo, Promise Land. Last time Promise Land remixed “Glow” together with AN21 & Max Vangeli, it was a melodic progressive track. This time however it’s an aggressive electro house track with a heavy acid-ish synth, keeping it fresh and interesting among many similar electro house tracks lately. Both Promise Land and Size Records are known for keeping the quality at a maximum, and this is no exception!
