Archie is one of the most consistently reliable progressive/electro house producers around. Every time he puts out a new track we pretty much know we’re going to love it before even hitting play, and we always do. That formula certainly proved to be the case with Rosa, a huge new tune he released a couple of weeks back featuring vocals from Silva Hound. A tantalizing build-up kicks into chopped up and distorted vocals that smoothly progress into a blast off of massive proportions. This is textbook Archie, and exactly why he made it into our Top Progressive House Picks of 2012 list with Villo. Grab the free download over on his Facebook page and get your Friday going right!
Mashups can be tricky to pull off, and it’s pretty rare to find one that’s truly successful, but one producer that gets us every time is Brooklyn’s HÔHME. Without fail, every single one of his mashups is incredibly on point and unbelievably well executed. His most recent creation mixes together Audien’s killer new track Wayfarer, with Sultan, Ned Shepard, and Taryn Manning’s Send Me Your Love. The transitions are impossibly smooth, track choice is perfection, and overall production as crisp as we could wish for. Grab the free download below and kick off the week on an epic note! And if you’ve yet to check out his mixes, we highly suggest you do, listen to his latest one here.
We’ve always admired the consistency with which LA duo The Dirty Tees can put out huge, quality productions. Their original track Maestro still remains one of our favorites, and even made it on to our Top Electro House Picks of 2012 list. Most recently they completed a remix of the Imagine Dragons track Radioactive, out on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records, and immediately following the initial listen we were hooked. With commanding vocals leading, an enormous melodic build-up, and a hefty dose of electro grind, this one comes out to be an absolutely massive tune. Though their releases have been few and far between, treating us only every couple months or so, we know the guys are hard at work and can’t wait to hear what they’ve got in store next.

We have no issue letting our affection for Heather Bright, now known to us as Bright Lights (more like Superwoman), show. She’s an incredibly talented vocalist and producer, and has been on a tear as of late collaborating with the likes of Benny Benassi, and working on material for a new album. One fruit of her recent labor is this killer edit of one of our all time favorite Zedd tracks, Stars Come Out, which actually features Heather’s phenomenal vocals. It was the track that lit up her career, and is the 2nd cut on the upcoming Bright Lights EP. All we can say is she power-punched this one up in a serious way, adding some super tasty electro bass drops making the track, if possible, even more amazing. Make sure to scoop it up, and keep an eye out for a bunch more material coming from Bright Lights soon!
