Listen: Yves Larock & The Cruzaders Ft. Juiceppe – “Strange World”

With two EPs behind him this year already, Yves Larock has been on fire since the start of 2012 – but latest track “Strange World” sees the Swiss producer crank things up to a WHOLE new level.
Collaborating with The Cruzaders and featuring the Hacienda-esque vocals of Juiceppe, “Strange World” is truly one of the most stunning tracks ever to come out of Larock’s Millia Records stable with its lush electronic 80s-inspired synthesized backdrop and softly pulsating filtered percussion.
Remixes come from Tiesto-favourite and Mixmash, Musical Freedom Records alumni Avesta, who turns in a truly zeitgeist remix that smacks of arena anthem, and also Stereo Fish, who intuitively shade the lower end of the track in darker tones, only to add a ray of musical sunshine through their emphasized piano line.
“Strange World” is a beautiful and original piece of work from Larock & The Cruzaders that is destined to hit all the right notes whether on the dance floor or across international radio waves.

Not many producers get handpicked by deadmau5 to conjure a full length artist album for his prestigious mau5trap imprint; so for German specialist Moguai to get the nod twice in as many years is one hefty testament to the sheer quality, imagination and originality of his musical output.
Now, and less than two years since the critically lauded release of his first ever mau5trap album We Ar Lyve back in April 2010, Moguai returns to the fray, and on the form of his life, for the agonizingly-awaited worldwide release of his latest long-player project – Mpire.
Available to buy now, the album itself is an exquisite piece of craftsmanship; artistically inventive, masterfully honed, perfectly coordinated and not an ounce short of what we’ve come to expect from this outstanding producer, working so consistently at the top of his game. With the juggernaut first single (also titled Mpire) released earlier this month hitting #1 in the overall Beatport chart within days, Moguai now looks set to further silence competitors and wow critics with this stunning new set of fresh, forward-thinking soundscapes, skilfully and thematically tied by an innovative touch that only he can attain.
Diligently incorporating elements of house, techno and electro, this work – two careful years in the making – has Moguai’s signature sound stamped all over it. Whether it’s the luxuriously complex, driving harmonies of “Dynamo” and “Heimaterde,” the progressive artistry of “Lyme” and Tommy Trash collaboration “In ‘N’ Out,” or the relentlessly pounding tech-bedlam that is “N.E.O.,” this stunning album delivers more than it’s fair share of peak-timers to satisfy the cravings of dancefloor junkies worldwide.
But it’s the spellbinding euphoria of tracks such as “Invisible”, “Styrum” and “Out of Nowhere” that elevate this album to that next level of innovative flair – one that so many artists struggle to achieve. Gentle, hypnotizing and evoking emotions of tranquillity throughout with their mesmerising synth progressions, these welcome moments of calm within an otherwise club-focused collection captivate the soul and carry the listener on a delicate journey through the ethereal. Just one listen and we begin to understand why the mau5 himself insisted so strongly upon another Moguai LP installment.
With some perfectly fitting collaborations and three exclusive offerings to round off proceedings (one each for Beatport, iTunes and Spotify) this album will no doubt become a mainstay in the collections of electronic music lovers young and old for years to come. In true testament to the infamous German composers that came before him, Moguai has created a masterpiece of a symphony that is as diverse as it is ingenious.
01. Moguai – Smyles
02. Moguai – Mpire
03. Moguai – Dynamo
04. Moguai – Lyme

New Label: Rock It Science Labs

Rock It Science Laboratories is a fresh music label that zooms forth from one of San Francisco’s favorite 
warehouse party-maker crews turned club promoters, musicians and remixers. 
“Wiggle Room” is the first release on the Rock It Science Laboratories label. DJ Fame and Eric Sharp have all thrusters going full throttle, turning out a twister of a track.
There’s some “Wiggle Room” remixes already, too.  Two high honored cadets of the Chicago club sound, Santiago & Bushido take it on as well as Trillbass who takes us to the dark forest of Dubstep, winding us down creepy turns and shivering drops. Finally Andrew Phelan and George Cochrane make the list here as well.
Check all of it out at BeatPort by clicking here.
Also, I’ve got a free download for ya! It’s another Groove Armada “Paper Romance” remix by the aforementioned Eric Sharp. After having a listen to a lot of remixes for “Paper Romance,” I gotta say this one’s a good one to have…especially if you’re like me and haven’t gotten sick of the song yet.
