Next Tuesday, May 29th will see the release of Felix Cartal‘s ‘Black To White’ remix EP on Dim Mak Records, featuring new renditions from Angger Dimas, Clockwork, and The Loops of Fury. Today, Felix has been kind enough to give us an exclusive listen to the remix from Indonesian Big Room maestro, Angger Dimas, in which Dimas stays true to form and provides a heavy Progressive Electro take on the vocally-driven original. A calming build for the first couple of minutes leads to a thumping breakdown fit for any main room or festival stage. Listen here first and make sure to pick up the full EP with all remixes next Tuesday on Beatport. Continue Reading

We’ve already seen some huge and long awaited releases drop this early in the year, but this EP is sure to take the taco. Our boy Clockwork is finally releasing his much anticipated Squad Up EP Tuesday, March 13th on Dim Mak Records – featuring the heavily supported ‘Squad Up,’ the techno darkside in ‘Hulk’ and the big room monster ‘Nox.’ If that wasn’t enough, the EP has also procured explosive remixes by Dillon Francis, Botnek, and Torro Torro, plus a special vocal edit of Squad Up. The self-titled tune is already receiving incredible support and is on target to be one of the top tunes of the year (not to mention a huge Beatport chart contender).
