Pryda Elements EP

Pryda Elements EP

Pryda Elements EP is the latest release from Swedish progressive house music DJ Producer Eric Prydz. This EP is hotly anticipated and long overdue. Considered a true master of progressive house music, he is believed to be one of the most talented producers of his time. Instead of choosing one single for our progressive house music track of the month for May 2018, we chose this EP in its entirety.

Elements provide his fans with four songs true to his sound. They run the spectrum of sounds from beautiful bright synths to deep dark bass. It’s a perfect mixture of industrial and grimy with progressive and soulful. Each track builds toward Olympian heights at lengths no shorter than six minutes. This EP is magnificent and precisely what differentiates Pryda from the rest of the world.

The four tracks are:

1. ‘Elements,’ at 8:08 is a trek into progressive house.
2. ‘Obsessive Progressive,’ at 8:34 is a melancholy mood of brooding synths.
3. ‘The HoaX,’ at 7:27 is a techno track of epic proportions.
4. ‘Project L.O.V.E,’ is the shortest track at 6:13 and has a limitless sound and leaves you on a higher note.

You can listen to ‘Elements’ below directly from Eric Prydz’s Soundcloud page. If you haven’t already done so, follow that page.

You can sample the other three tracks at Beatport.

Will Crockford Chasing Cities

Will Crockford Chasing Cities with Rosie Darling released on May 11, 2018, on Chroma Records is our EDM track of the month for May 2018. Rosie provides her sultry vocals on this offering.

Her voice is delicate but confident, and it fits the theme of this song perfectly.

The inspiration for this song came from Rosie’s difficulties of living in a big city, separated from her love. She spent the Summer of 2017 living in Nashville, Tennessee. Will wanted to create a melody appropriately emotional enough to convey that message.

One interesting tidbit is that they created this track in pieces. Will and Rosie were never together. She sent him an acapella of the first verse. Will wrote the instrumental around the acapella verse. Rosie took Will’s version and re-recorded a full release in acapella with harmonies and adlibs.

Will took the pieces provided by Rosie and assembled them into the final version. Will painstakingly worked to bring the vocals into the sound he wanted. Though it was Rosie’s song, she allowed Will carte blanche to be creative.

Will said of working with Rosie,

She’s such a talented artist, and her voice is so unique that when it came time to put it together, it all flowed very easily.

Underwater Tinlicker Remix

Gabriel and Dresden Underwater

Gabriel and Dresden Underwater featuring Jan Burton, Tinlicker Remix is our progressive house track of the month for May 2018. Originally released on their iTunes dance album The Only Road (2017), the Tinlicker rework of Underwater has a release date of May 1, 2018, on the Anjunabeats label.

Of their sound, Dresden said,

It is always about being timeless.

Gabriel affirmed,

We don’t pay much attention to trends. We choose sounds and words that…will mean something to a lot of people and…make them put their hands in the air.

Gabriel & Dresden have an extensive soundscape, profoundly euphoric vocalist, and an infectious bass line. This Dutch rework preserves the hallmarks of their unique sound while deriving a new conflagration to the electronic dance music scene.

Tinlicker

The Dutch duo Tinlicker, comprised of Micha Heyboer and Jordi van Achthoven from Utrecht, Netherlands, worked their progressive magic on this dance floor bomb. A rare talent, Tinlicker’s sound is at home on either Anjuna label.

A pulsating, groove-heavy rework, this is another dance floor oriented remix.

Electronic synths make your introduction. Jan Burton’s deep yet sensual voice slowly follows. You get a sense of the synthesizer sounds of the 1980s from the likes of Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Human League, and New Order. The elemental sounds of Tinlicker shine through though.

‘Underwater’ repeats, and at 122 bpm, the synths nearly feel like you’re swimming slowly in a deep and calm ocean. At the midpoint, Burton’s vocals speak and the pulsing bass returns.

Amelie Lens Stay With Me

Amelie Lens Stay With Me EP features an excellent remix by Perc of the title track. It is our techno track of the month for March 2018. Amelie returned to Pan-Pot’s label, Second State. Second State is close-knit techno label showcasing Pan-Pot’s work, as well as works from some of their closest peers.

They described Amelie’s latest EP as,

Her return was imminent. Now she’s back, and like her current rise among the industry’s elite, Amelie Lens delivers an astonishing three tracker of her signature pulse-pounding expeditions. Pair that with a massive remix by the legendary Perc and you’ve got ‘Stay With Me,’ an EP headed straight for the charts.

One way to describe Perc’s remix of ‘Stay With Me’ is that it has a squelchy acid techno bassline. Even though repetition exists, it still has a sense of randomness to it.

You were living in, a world of make believe
And I tried so hard, to make you believe
But I was stuck,
In between,
you and your broken dreams
Now I’m watching you fall down, right in front of me
Now I’m watching you fall down, breaking at the seams
Now I’m watching you fall down, breaking at the seams

Tell… me…..
Noooo-thingggg….
Nothing else but you beeee – lieveeee in me

You got caught up feeling like you’re never there
And I tried to be there
Empty promises that show me you don’t care
But all I need
is a single word…
A single thought
forever there,

Telllll… meeee….
Yoooou… believe….
You believe in more than you can seeeeee
Now I’m watching you fall down, right in front of me

Now I’m watching you fall down, breaking at the seams

Tell… me….. No-thing…. No-thing else but you be – lieve in me
