Paul van Dyk pres. VANDIT Records Miami 2014

Paul van Dyk pres. VANDIT Records Miami 2014With a disc wallet fair bulging with hot new VANDIT Records material and only nanoseconds to go before Miami’s WMC and MMW season goes hot, Paul van Dyk has compiled a mix-showcase of the label’s hottest latest & upcoming material. ‘VANDIT Records – Miami 2014’ is a 12-track packed outing, with new studio-fresh audio from the label’s ever-flourishing talent base.

In and among its house rhythms, proggy atmospherics and trance cornucopia are tracks from faithful label quartermasters including Judge Jules, ALEX M.O.R.P.H. & WOODY VAN EYDEN, Las Salinas, Maarten de Jong and a host of others. It also contains fresher to the VANDIT fold producers, with music from Ben Nicky, Eddie Bitar, Jordan Suckley and Genix to mention but a few. Miami’s here: time to get VANDIT! 

With a more than a hint of south Floridian flavour, the future club hits come to the mix quick. Following up their celebrated ‘EVOLUTION’-born ‘Verano’ and ‘Symmetries’ club rockers, the VANDIT boss has been back in the studio with Miami’s resident house/prog master Austin Leeds. ‘Parranda’ is the thunderbolt result, which sets a mighty precedent for the release.

Judge Jules is back with ‘Monte Carlo’

Judge Jules, photo: PRHe’s back! Judge Jules is a man who needs no introduction (though we’re probably about to give him a quick one anyway!). Past master of everything from raves to the airwaves, he’s also a producer no stranger to VANDIT’s discography. Over the last few years’ tracks like ‘Collide’ (with Christina Novelli), ‘The Attack’, ‘Phenomenology’, ‘Fiber’ and others have all left crater-deep impressions on dancefloors. Of late the electronic music impresario has been back in the studio flash frying another speaker-reaper! ‘Monte Carlo’ finds the Judge at his most pure, driven and out-and-out trancey.    

 ‘Monte Carlo’ roars to life with echoing vocal harmonic loops, super-loud claps, toughened drums, stretched, delayed FX and chords & pads-laden highs. Quick drops, with just as fast kick-drum bring-backs, the track walks the cooler line between melodic bliss an uprocking euphoric!

A tune that have crowds on their toes from Amsterdam to Zanzibar and all points in between (yes, we’re thinking Monte Carlo!), this one’s got summer pathfinder written all over it.

Ben Nicky feat. Chloe Stamp present ‘Brave Heart’

Ben Nicky, photo: PRIf there’s one thing that’s been missing around the VANDIT ramparts of late, it’s arguably a honest-to-goodness, laser raisin’, floor-blazin’ vocal trancer!! Step forward then Mr. Ben Nicky, to put an end to this unholy drought and floor-side get those collective vocal chords lifted. He’s gotten together with singer/songwriter talent Chloe Stamp to create the impossibly catchy, deliriously uplifting ‘Brave Heart’. 

Cut at full-blooded trance speed, the track beats a path to the floor with running b-lines, 808 drums and 303 acidics. Dropping into the break, Ben intros Chloe’s calling, siren-song harmonics, backed by pad & chord wash and lump-in-ya-throat pianos. With her heart-on-sleeve lyrics and angelic tones stamping their sear on the break, Ben hooks in its thunderbolt mainline and splits ‘Brave Heart’s atom!

Nano-genres, do-one. This is trance, served plain, straight and most uplifting!!
