Merk & Kremont - 'Amen' [Size]

After recently celebrating their 10 year anniversary this March with #DECADE, Size Records is back to business with their latest release, 'Amen' from Italian duo Merk & Kremont out on April 21st 2014.

Injecting energy into every track they create 'Amen' is intense and fast paced - speeding up like a runaway train, building into an electrifying and energised dance floor filler. It kicks off with a pumping drum beat and drops into a fully charged electro rhythm shaking you to your core.

Storming onto the music scene in 2012, Italian based duo Merk & Kremont have hit the ground running, earning a reputable and solid name for themselves amongst their peers and with a score of powerful tracks behind them, it's no surprise that they are one of the most exciting acts around.

Their 2012 club smashing record 'Underground' followed by 'Tundra' and 'Zunami' in 2013 received support from the likes of Avicii, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Otto Knows, Fedde le Grand, Dannic, Danny Howard and more.

Steve Angello - 'Teasing Mr Charlie’ (Sebjak & Tony Senghore Remix) [Size] Out Now

After a massive start to the year with releases 'Raveline' and 'We Are' both released on Ultra Records, Swedish DJ/ producer Sebjak, alongside Tony Senghore have created a very special remix of Steve Angello's Size records release 'Teasing Mr Charlie' available as a free download from today.

The remix is bigger, bolder and louder, as Sebjak and Tony Senghore adds their jumped up big room house vibe for a modern twist on this classic track.

Already marking himself out as one of the most exciting new talents to come out of Sweden, a country synonymous with producing some of the world's biggest dance music stars, Sebjak is now making an impression on a much larger scale.

Having signed an exclusive deal with Ultra Records, Sebjak is focusing on his massive new single 'We Are', released 15th April, and working with his fellow Swedes - Steve Angello and AN21 on 'GODS' and Jaz Von D on 'Into The Wild', both which featured in Sebjak's guest mix for Steve Angello's residency show on BBC Radio 1.

Lazy Rich & Special Features 'Beginning Of The World' (Remixes) [Le7els]

Whether it was fate or not, it seemed as though Lazy Rich finding Special Features from a remix that he had done for Ultra Records was meant to be.

After months of deliberation, they finally got in touch and passed around ideas for a potential collaboration - as if they had the foresight for what to come. 'Beginning Of The World' is the result, and you can get the original version now, on Avicii's imprint Le7els.

Back again with an awesome remix package, released on 15th April, 'Beginning Of The World (Remixes)' now features 3 massive reworkings from Spencer Brown, Galavant and Space Kadets.

After exchanging brilliant ideas for the melodies, arrangements and other elements of the song, they went on to finish the track and apply their own signature sounds without vocals. At that point, Rich and Special Features, aka Eden Anderson went on a hunt for a proper top line, and tried several different options before landing the impressive songwriter, Mike James and the gifted vocalist Laurel. The result went far beyond their already high expectations, and they know that they had a very special piece of music on their hands. 

Rich is an exciting artist with a buzz name and a reputation for unique productions, having already seen great reactions to his remixes for Avicii and Zedd and the massive 'Brainfreeze' on Doorn last year. Rich has kicked 2014 off with a bang with his first original track 'Let's Get Weird' and a massive remix of Showtek's 'Cannonball'.

This will be the year for UK native and a resident of Canada, Lazy Rich. A whole series of original releases and remixes on several high profile record labels still to come as well as a hectic touring schedule, the future certainly looks bright for this rising star.

David Guetta & Showtek present exclusive new lyric video to ‘Bad’ (Jack Back / Parlophone / Warner)

David Guetta and Showtek have offered up an exclusive lyric video for storming new club track ‘Bad’, a track they played together at Ultra Music Festival and that earned Guetta an unprecedented third Beatport #1 of 2014 in its first week alone following ‘Shot Me Down’ and his remix for Avicii’s ‘Addicted To You’. Presented in an innovative cartoon strip format akin to the previous club track ‘Shot Me Down’, although this time based around zombies, it provides an engaging, light-hearted conceptual twist. It depicts an unlikely love story that compliments the bouncy, feel-good nature of the track itself.

 Firmly underlining both Guetta and Showtek’s credentials, ‘Bad’ bears all the hallmarks of yet another classic in the making. Vociferously backed by contemporaries including Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix and The Chainsmokers and clearly a massive hit with his fans, there is little doubt that it will be regarded as one of the year’s biggest club tracks. This is the second in a series of beats designed by Guetta purely for the dancefloor through his Jack Back Records label. The radio edit is now available on iTunes, Spotify, and Deezer.
