Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s ‘Nox’ is the upcoming second single from their Hillside West EP due out on Dim Mak Records in April. The sound of ‘Nox’ is unlike anything Joachim has ever released before — tying in lighthearted piano riffs at the beginning of the track with monstrous, snarling Dubstep elements that pushed me back in my chair a bit. In coincidence with the release of ‘Nox’ on Beatport on April 24th, a remix competition has been announced with some epic prizes from Pioneer, Serato, WeSC, and more.

Today marks the exclusive Beatport release of the first single, ‘Hook,’ from Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s new collaborative EP, Hillside West, due out on Dim Mak next month. Teaming up with the fresh new French trio, Alesia, has proven to be a great influence on this new single from Joachim.

With support already in from Axwell, Bingo Players, Angger Dimas and more, I’m sure that we’ll be hearing this a fair amount during festival season. Pick up ‘Hook’ on Beatport today and click on after the jump for the preview. Continue Reading
