Las Salinas feat. Sue Mclaren ‘Break the Spell’

Las Salinas feat. Sue Mclaren 'Break the Spell'With ‘Say Another What’ (their last outing, alongside Genix), Las SalinasIsrael Bicher and Shaulli Harrari picked up a DJ Mag Single of the Month award and a mass of cross-party deejay support. Their follow-up sees them leave the land of the instrumental and head for pastures altogether more vocal. Having previously cast her lyrical thrall over his ‘We Come Together’ track, label boss Paul van Dyk has put the Tel Aviv-ians together with vocalist Sue McLaren for ‘Break The Spell’.

The ‘Spell’s overture comes loaded with long, held harmonic vocal sweeps, which develop the mellowest types of in-club drama. To that Las Salinas begin to apply symphonic string pressure and dramatic orchestral hits, priming the stage for Sue’s vocals. 

Immersed in elegiac pathos, she drafts both lament and lift into ‘Break This Spell’. Running the full emotional gauntlet, her lyrics bring it the same heartfelt spirit that turned tracks like ‘Sun After Heartbreak’ into modern club classics.

ALEX M.O.R.P.H. & WOODY VAN EYDEN – A NIGHT OUTSIDE

ALEX M.O.R.P.H. & WOODY VAN EYDEN - A NIGHT OUTSIDEAlex M.O.R.P.H. rocked it clean off the grid in 2013, culminating the year with his ‘Magnum’ release for VANDIT (“so tasty you’ll want two of them!” & “seriously annihilating floor-flooring gear” proclaimed MIXMAG!).

Now, for his next strike, he’s putting the old team back together! Of late, Alex has been back twiddling knobs (both studio and turntable) late into the night with clubbing comrade Woody van Eyden. Eagle-eared listeners, who saw them cause all manner of floor uproar at the WMC VANDIT AllStars night during last week, will already have seen ‘A Night Outside’ make the biggest of debut splashes. 

With a coproduction history that stretches back to VANDIT’s ‘Turn It On’ release in 2008, with ‘A Night Outside’ M.O.R.P.H. & Van Eyden may very well have aced the lot!

Tristan D & DJ Ideal : ‘MIAMI’

Tristan D & DJ Ideal : 'MIAMI', photo: PRWith Judge Jules’ latest VANDIT release out, about, and raising the Fahrenheit on club floors allover, in the space of a single release the label leap from ‘Monte Carlo’ to ‘Miami’. Last year’s Tristan D’s collaboration with the Judge (so fittingly titled ‘The Verdict’!) brought the English ex-pat/now Cali-residing producer to VANDIT’s attention. Three months later they’d inked his and Tangle’s ‘Vertigo’ coproduction, which in turn picked up some heavy rotation from many an A-list trance decktition. 

Now, just in time to catch the full heat draft of the Sunshine State’s Winter Music Conference, Tristan is back, this time partnering with DJ Ideal, with something that has a fraction more of the house flavor about it.
This is the so-timely-it-hurts ‘Miami’!

Tristan & Ideal’s ‘Miami’ vision starts, tonally, deeper down the scale, through its bass booming, tribally progressive intro.
