NJ native Mike Gazzo continues his explosion out of the EDM gate with another awesome freebie. Honoring a 20K Facebook fan milestone, Gazzo dishes out his take on Snow Patrol’s 2006 hit “Chasing Cars.” The remix contains a very smooth, melodic lead and build which then breaks into a unexpected electro drop. I’d call it the best of both worlds for progressive and electro house fanatics. Stream below and enjoy!
Premiered by Pete Tong last week, Tiesto’s next single “Red Lights” is another direction for the 44 year old veteran. Sure, the light guitar strings and male vocals are a bit mainstream, but it’s catchy and makes for a smooth club jam. Early responders to the track already have their panties in a bunch as they complain how much Tiesto has “changed.” Tiesto’s been in this business long enough to know what he’s doing. Right now, change is the most respected attribute to have in this EDM bubble. Enjoy the leak below; no word on the actual release.
Live City leaves no prisoners on their brand new EP for Liftoff Recordings. “Bambada” features two devastating cuts that will leave listeners traumatized. The A-side is a swinging electro offering with a massive drop that gives way to a flurry of apocalyptic stabs and arpeggios. On the flip side, “Chakra” is a straight ahead electro barn-stormer featuring the clever use of some melodic marimbas and string arrangements. The symphonic breakdown surrenders itself to an epic drop and pulsating bassline that will make thiscut a difficult one to forget.

Australian duo Karboncopy are back with another soothing, progressive remake by taking on Don Diablo & Matt Nash’s “Starlight.” The original was released back in July on Axtone and has received a slew of remixes since then, most notably from Otto Knows.
