Hailing from the Netherlands, Jay Hardway is currently blowing up the festival house scene right now. “Voodoo” combines both light and heavy elements. As the track builds, we’re lead on by a light melodic synth. Almost like a progressive house track, this playful melody sets a playful tone. The tension of the track builds, and the bass-heavy drop kicks in. This track is definitely festival material.

Thanks to OWSLA’s keen eye for talent, Jackal was able to release his new collaboration with Boombox Cartel with OWSLA’s official stamp of approval. Both Jackal and Boombox Cartel are incredibly talented producers individually.

“Boss Mode (Kayzo Harder Mix)” by Knife Party

I don’t post songs like this very often; Hardstyle is more of Ella’s thing.

But c’mon, Kayzo AND Knife Party?!? I couldn’t resist.

Kayzo has been blowing the game away for the past year and he has already started 2015 with a bang! This remix takes Knife Party’s already heavy-hitting original and makes it just a tad harder. If he continues popping out bangers like this, which I’m sure he will, then Kayzo should be a commonplace name by the end of his sophomore production year. Stay tuned for more Kayzo and go “Boss Mode” to this track.

“Remember House (Radio Edit)” by EDX

EDX switches things up with his newest release but doesn’t divert far from his usual deep style. “Remember House” brings back nostalgic vibes of old-school house but also brings to it a modern vibe.

The main element is the punchy kick. With this kick, the entire track gets its groove, and to top it off, the infectious “Do You Remember House” sample adds to this progressive style. Seriously, how can you not move to this track.

“Insomnia” by Audien ft. Parson James

After finishing 2014 with a bang, Audien went straight back to work to create his most recent release “Insomnia.” Insomnia differs from the traditional “Audien sound” in that he concentrates more on the plucks and the fast paced melody rather than the sustained, earthy chords.

For “Insomnia,” the young Grammy-nominated artist teamed up with Brooklyn-based Parson James. With soulful vocals paired with an upbeat melody, we get an infectious dance track that will keep you going. “Insomnia” will be released through Astralwerks.
