Our GDD friend and familiar AMTRAC has been producing up a storm in 2013, remixing the likes of Ellie Goulding, Azari & III, and Bondax – while also releasing a ton of free originals on his soundcloud. Today, we celebrate the massive release of his remix for Wretch 32′s “Blackout” on Ministry Of Sound. The haunting vocals of Shakka are uplifted by deep disco house groove that rolls along til the bitter end… Listen to below, and go support the release!

One of the UK’s finest, Flux Pavilion, brings some serious heat with his new Drumstep remix of Example‘s ‘Midnight Run.’ Before listening, I was a bit hesitant to press play as I was in a relaxed mood after a long day, and I didn’t want anything too intense. I decided to take the plunge and it turns out that Example’s vocals matched with Flux Pavilion’s production is something I definitely want need to hear more of. The drop won’t be what you’re expecting, so don’t hesitate to listen and you’ll be rewarded. Keep an eye out for the official release on Ministry of Sound.
Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend DJMag‘s Top 100 DJs award ceremony at London’s highly acclaimed Ministry of Sound. I’ve never seen a club so rammed, as thousands flooded the streets, in line to catch sets from some of the world’s top acts. Afrojack opened up the second room, with a pretty tight two hour dutch house set, but the vast majority were there to find out who’d be crowned the world’s number 1 DJ. Armin Van Buuren received the award for the fourth time in consecutive years, as several hundred in the club appeared to groan at the lack of change.
This morning our dear friends over at Ministry of Sound were kind enough to give us an exclusive for all you loyal fans out there. They have sent us over the newest label-approved remix of Afrojack’s super hit “Take Over Control” done by the English super producer Adam Fenton (Adam F). For all those who have been living under a rock the past 10 years, Adam F is one of the biggest names in the dub game. He has worked with everyone from DJ Fresh to Redman. Needless to say, his producing skills are second to none. In his remix of this notorious Dutch banger, he has successfully been able to take out the Dutch horn sound and create a subtle yet perfect dub mix. I highly suggest you check it out! Do not forget to pick up the 320 version when it drops November 7th on Ministry of Sound Records.
WOAH I hope you all haven’t forgotten about one of our prodigal sons, 22 year old UK phenom Kyle Gibbon, aka FOAMO. I recently came across his latest mix for Ministry of Sound’s ‘Saturday Sessions’, and its jam packed with loads of unreleased tunes (like the harvy bass remix of FC) that I’ve been spewing over trying to find.

i know you all have heard of SIDECHAINS. he had an absolutely huge track last year of a madonna remix that i ended up hearing wherever i went, in addition to some excellent productions as well. well, thanks to Ministry of Sound, we have a brand new remix by the man from barcelona. it’s got a poppy feel to it with just enough bass in there. definitely has the potential to be a club hit in the next couple of months i’m thinking. click here to grab his single ‘monster house’ off of itunes.
MoS also gave us an absolutely face-smashing track by the up and coming producer from London, Slavedriver. you might need to put your seatbelts on before these nasty synths blow you away. no joke. safety first everyone.
Ministry of Sound Recordings has sent us a fresh new remix by B. Rich of Fragma’s ‘Memory’ and it’s a good one. MoS has been looking hard to get some remixes of commercial artists lately and this is a great start. give a listen to it.
