With New Years Eve quickly approaching, the city of Denver is gearing up for a huge night of dance music. After a great summer of music, Global Dance and Triad Dragons are back to bring us one of the premier NYE parties in the US of A. If you are familiar with the event you know about the top notch production and the top notch talent that it garners. This year is no exception! From trance to dub-step, the line-up includes A-list name after A-list name and a little something for everyone to enjoy. There is nothing better than a night of dancing to ring in the New Year! Catch the Decadence NYE 2014 Trailer after the jump and also check out the latest track by the Triad Dragons.
Anyone who’s a fan of Deadmau5 likely knows that his 5 Years of mau5 compilation album dropped at the end of last month and with it came 12 remixes of the songs that helped boost the producer to super-stardom (in addition to CD 1 that features a best-of from Deadmau5 so far). While we haven’t covered the entire 22-song release at length here on MMIBTY, we have touched upon the Shiba San remix of “I Remember”. That is, of course, in addition to the many times we’ve written about Deadmau5 here and the fact that you’ve heard his music on a large scale over the past 5+ years. Last week mau5trap, Deadmau5′s label, released a free version of “Aural Psynapse” released by newcomer Attlas.
In trying to find more information on the mysterious Attlas I’ve come up pretty empty. The producer, who we assume is male by his website and social media, has only one track on his SoundCloud page. Additionally, he has a limited number of social media followers and no information about who he is listed on said social media pages. But you know what? I’m okay with that because Attlas’ remix of “Aural Psynapse” is just fantastic. The original version, found below, has the very type of sound Deadmau5 hangs his hat on. It’s kind of ravey, it’s got all the bleeps and bloops you’re accustomed to, and it gets crowds moving. The Attlas remix incorporates some new pad sounds that give it a slightly deeper, more progressive sound. The cadence of those pads has a nice rhythmic bounce and it’s a track I’ve played multiple times over the past week.
If you like what you hear show some love and enjoy the free download. I’m curious to see what comes from Attlas next!
We have grown quite fond of the young Norwegian Jerry Folk’s remixes over the past year, so the release of this original track So Long ft. BB Diamonddefinitely made our ears perk up. Teaming up with London’s BB Diamond to create an original vocal track resulted in nothing less than pure airy bliss. Folk’s tracks often carry an overriding vocal element that to some extent drives the track with this original being no exception, however in the past most of his releases have been remixes. With the addition of a bass line that is nothing less than bounce combined with well placed vocals this track does it all. From the synth-pop-esque riff throughout or the additional aired out filters this track is sure to put a smile on your face and get just about any dance floor moving. Grab the free download below and be sure to check out Jerry’s Soundcloud for a stockpile of super fun deep house tracks and remixes.
Progressive House music: there are few out there who are doing it on a level worth talking about. You already know about guys like Pryda, Fehrplay, and Jeremy Olander – they are the big three of Progressive House (I wish Fon.Leman was bigger…). But there’s a London-based guy out there who goes by the name Richard Knott and he is quite the talent. Richard Knott has a cutting-edge, polished Progressive sound that removes focus from vocals and lets his production skills do the talking. Fans of the Pryda Friends label, which Knott has released tunes on, will undoubtedly be impressed by today’s release of “Mantra”. I first heard “Mantra” on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Radio and I was blown away by the track that clearly deviates from their style of music. “Mantra” has a deep and dark sound, with ethnic undertones and some excellent use of the sleigh bell. “Mantra” was released on Monster Deep which is an imprint of the Monster Tunes Trance and Progressive label that Armin Van Buuren has regarded as “Definitely one of the best trance labels out there”.
Richard Knott’s following hasn’t climbed to levels I think he deserves, so check out his latest track and his November 2014 mix and show him some love!

Infectious House music brought to you by jackLNDN on this Sunday night. The UK, London-based, producer is one of our favorites here at MMIBTY and we’ve written about him numerous times, sharing his music with as many people as we possibly can. Back at the end of November jackLNDN released his track “Don’t Forget” and it’s been met with amazing responses. While it took me a few weeks to catch up, I’m brining you “Don’t Forget” as an in case you missed it feature, but making sure to point out it’s just the first track on jackLNDN’s Summer Never Ends – Vol. 1 EP. The piano intro hooked me in immediately but what was more impressive is how Jack was able to work in Electro-House wobbles into an otherwise Deep House tune. No lyrics to speak of, but the progression of the tune almost calls someone like a Pryda or Fehrplay into the picture. Turn the lights down low for “Don’t Forget” and make sure to keep an eye on jackLNDN especially with the release of his new EP coming soon!
jackLNDN writes about “Don’t Forget”:
The first track from the new ‘Summer Never Ends – Vol. 1′ EP. This one takes a deeper, progressive route. As always, it’s a free download. Enjoy!
Option4 is back on the remix decks, and this time he has brought the bounce to the Kid Astray single Back To The Ordinary. I don’t know if I can say I was really a fan of this track before it got the Option4 treatment. Utilizing the clean and crisp vocals of the indie-pop hit Option4 injects the track with a super fun breakdown and a bass line that is sure to make dance floors across the nation move. Well-placed samples, undermined vocal filters, additional snares, and a great piano hook keep this track moving from start to finish. Option4 truly breathed life into this track with his remix, go check it out now on HypeM and show the Denver ringleader some love!
