Rising stars of the Parisian house scene, SomethingALaMode release their sophomore album, ‘Endless Stairs’ and new single, ‘On My Mind’ this spring and are primed to set the season ablaze.

After the successful release of ‘Toy Spark Gun’ and ‘Prophet 21′, heralded by the likes of MTV, Vibe, Clash Magazine, Les Inrocks, Konbini, Beatport and Mixmag, SomethingALaMode are back with their brand new long player showcasing twelve upfront jackin’ house cuts featuring esteemed collaborations with various luminaries like Dan Black, DWNTWN, Rinko Kikuchi, Adam Joseph, just to name a few. All painstakingly crafted together for one hi octane, bass addled ride.

A familiar fixture within the fashion circles, Karl Lagerfeld featured in the group’s first single; SomethingALaMode’s debut album garnered critical acclaim from fans and peers alike back in 2009. Both Music College graduates, Thomas and Yannick adopt an academic approach to party music, infusing both their passion for Stravinski as well as Daft Punk.

SomethingALaMode’s career trajectory has been skyrocketing ever since. Having shared the stage with fellow peers like The Bloody Beetroots, Gonzales, Jeff Mills, Madeon, Icona Pop and Zedd. They also sold 15,000 copies of their first album and toured cities from Koko in London, to Cigale in Paris and Krysha Mira in Moscow. Regulars on the fashion circuit, the duo have played at various shows including Issey Miyake, Thierry Mugler and Chanel.

Tempo Giusto – Game Changer

Lange Recordings sees a label debut next from Finnish big room tech and progressive trance act – Tempo Giusto.

‘Game Changer’ certainly is all that as “the King of triplets” delivers something very special indeed for the peak time Trance lovers. This vibrant & pulsing track will without doubt have hands in the air in the clubs and reaching for repeat at home.

A fantastic release for the Lange camp from Tempo Giusto!

Matt Fax – Within

One of Colorize’s most prized assets, Matt Fax makes his return on the label following his previous release ‘Barr’ which came out in January. His new EP ‘Within / Cloudbreak’ is another extraordinary display of progressive house talent from the young Frenchman.

Already an exclusive feature on this year’s Colorize – Volume 01 compilation, ‘Within’ sees Matt Fax’s trademark grooves and deep basslines working in perfect harmony. Adding some infectious melodies to this already outstanding track and it’s clear to see how it made it through Sebastian Weikum’s rigorous selection process for the compilation.

‘Cloudbreak’ ups the tempo and delivers some sublime synth work guaranteed to make those hairs stand on end. Already a master of the deep and progressive realms at such a young age, this is indeed a very exciting time for Matt Fax.

Watch out for this flawless, double headed EP – ‘Within / Cloudbreak’ on Colorize!

Alan Morris & Daniel Garrick – Jet Stream

Teaming up once again, these two producers are no strangers to working together. Alan Morris & Daniel Garrick pair up for a whirlwind production on Always Alive Recordings – ‘Jet Stream’.

Both talented producers in their own right, Alan Morris & Daniel Garrick have crafted a brilliant piece of driving Trance. A welcome track on the label, the breakdown features warm pads and vibrant synth led melodies before a drop of heavy bass driven rhythms.

Las Salinas feature also feature on the record with their brilliant Remix of ‘Jet Stream’. A more progressive orientated version, this Remix sees the melody being reworked into something unique and makes for a welcome alternative to the Original.

An excellent collaboration from this German duo on the Always Alive label!

Fabio XB & Liuck feat. Christina Novelli – Back To You (Remixed)

Having seen an overwhelming response to the Original and Wach Remix which picked up the A State Of Trance ‘Future Favourite’ title, and tireless support from Armin Van Buuren himself, ‘Back To You’ strikes again, this time with no less than 3 stunning new remixes.

Up first is Fabio XB & Yves De Lacroix to deliver their remodelled version of the track. Having redesigned the melody and constructed new drum patterns for their take on the Original, this Remix gives an entirely new flavour to the track whilst preserving Christina Novelli’s angelic vocals.

Matt Davey has been drafted in for the second Remix on this EP. Employing sun kissed pads in the breakdown and a rolling bassline after the drop, this Remix provides us with yet another sensational new interpretation of Fabio XB & Liuck’s Original Mix.

Lastly but by no means least, Purple Stories give their rendition of ‘Back To You’. A much darker theme to this Remix, Purple Stories have managed to transform the atmosphere of the track and make it their own.

A collection of three stand out remixes of one sensational tune from Fabio XB & Liuck feat. Christina Novelli on Digital Society Recordings!
