Yasmeen present "Lovin You"‘Loving You’ from the dream team, Kenny Summit, Director’s Cut & Yasmeem, was orginally unleashed last year on Good For You Records and soared all the way to Traxsource no. 1 and stayed there for a whole month! Back once again to cause mass destruction on this Summer’s dance-floors, ‘Loving You’ gets a makeover from top DJ Producers Dave Mayer & Husky. Together the boys have turned out 2 tasty feel-good mixes; 1 armed with a deep 90’s bass groove, bumping beats and warm Rhodes that bubble under Yasmeen’s love-struck vocal; and a sparkling disco tinged chuggy dub mix, deemed to shoot this winner straight back up the charts!

Director’s Cut are a production duo comprising of two of dance music’s most influential producers – Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper. They first launched the project in 2011, signing to Nocturnal Groove, with the massive single ‘I’ll Take You There’, which featured long time friend and vocalist Jamie Principle on vocals. They have since gone on to woo dance-floors worldwide with their electric productions and remixes, reigniting anthems such as Frankie’s ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and Sylvester’s ‘Mighty Real’, to further magical new productions including ‘Get Over U’ ft B Slade and ‘Let Yourself Go’ with Sybil, among many others. Director’s Cut consistently add warmth, feeling and class to anything they touch, creating distinctive sonic beauty that resonates our dance-floors and beyond.

Paul van Dyk & Cream Ibiza present The Ibiza Sunset Cruise on August 1st 2013The culmination of last year’s PvD boat party saw dance master & beat commander Paul van Dyk rock the good ship Cream Ibiza and go from ‘decks to deck’, crowd-surfing the length of the ship. Now, one year later, the uniform is washed, pressed (and back to pristine white), the captain’s cap’s been knocked back into its (almost) original shape, and the gold braid’s been stapled back firmly into place…just in time! 
As the Ibiza 2013 season goes mainline, PvD steps aboard again August 1st.

As part of the clubbing institution’s birthday celebrations, Cream Ibiza boat party weighs anchor from San Antonio harbour at 18.00pm on August 1st and sets sail towards the mystical, magnetic rock of Es Vedra.

Soundtracked by the music from Paul van Dyk’s forthcoming, hotly-anticipated ‘Politics of Dancing 3’ album, the boat will cruise eastwards around the ancient rock quarry of Atlantis – a place of high reverence for hippy Ibiza. As the sun begins to slip beneath the Med waves, PvD will pay musical homage to the legendary Ibiza sunset.

COSMIC GATE present CRUSHED – the set-request standing order

COSMIC GATE present CRUSHED - the set-request standing orderWith ‘Storm Chaser’ – their first single post the release of the ‘Wake Your Mind’ album – still raising big room temperatures globally, EDM cosmonauts Nic Chagall and Bossi are poised to send the Fahrenheit flying again. Making its first appearance on their Trance Nation mix-comp album in 2012, ‘Crushed’ quickly became a set-request standing order for crowds at C.G. gigs. Now, with its anthem credentials already well advanced, its long awaited official release is close at hand… 

Beating the remix path for the track, Comic Gate have handed ‘Crushed’s keys to underground Dutch heroes Rafaël Frost and Mark Sixma.

Premiered on Corsten’s Countdown 313, Rafaël Frost crushes in both harmonic shades and electro aspects to the frontend of his version. He builds the boom-factor with big concussive tech-trance sequences; allows the pitch wheel to climb high-rise high, and with a final flourish serves ‘Crushed’s big stabbed anthemic mainline.

Armin meanwhile has been all over the Mark Sixma’s mix, champing it on ASOT618 and619. Sixma super-charges his rework with striking rimshot percussion, festival-revving EDM FX and some seismic bass and drums. The Tilburg-based producer masterfully sets up ‘Crushed’ harmonic/euphoric interchange with some crowd-flaming modulation lines, pulling off a dazzling, head-spin top-of-the-drop moment.
