Exclusive Featured Releases
Boys, look out! Following the previous two Mobilee releases from Anja Schneider and Miss Kittin, Maya Jane Coles drops another top female-produced EP for the unstoppable label. Maya's brand new EP contains three tracks, each providing more proof that this 23-year-old is a force to be reckoned with. The tracks are packed with energy, hypnotic grooves and an original flare.

Anyone looking to add a boost of energy to their sets should look no further than the latest bomb from Saved Records. Nic Fanciulli has joined forces with Gary Beck for a whopper designed to rock the party and move the biggest rooms. A stomping rhythm with catchy horn stabs, sharp hi-hats and a relentless kick drum create a track that will appeal to house and techno jocks alike.

Jerome Sydenham returns with a heavy dose of proper techno. The title track's switching drum sounds keep your ear tuned into the intricate nuances, while "Weather System" starts off hypnotic, making a perfect blending tool, before revealing a hip-shaking funky house groove right in the middle of the thunderous beats.

"Hexagon EP" is a three track powerhouse of muscular techno grooves full of rolling percussion and hyper-extended energy levels. A remix from Tom Hades is also included, which takes the original template from Sasha and adds his own personal techno flavor to the recipe.

Tsuba packages a solid set of new remixes as they celebrate 5 successful years. Sebo K works the Nina Kravitz "Okain's Scream" into a big tech house groover, while Arto Mwambe gives a deep acidic bass heavy touch to Kevin Griffiths "Cantona Kung Fu." Art Department's interpretation of Dyed Soundorom's "Tapioka" is pure bliss and "Tacos & Frogs" is a techy chugger.

"Conscious Of My Conscience" is soul-a-delic delight. Henrik Schwarz works a piano rich shuffling groove with acidic bass line in his remix and dub. Mannheim's Johnny D. graces the package, mixing the vocals into his transcendental menage of whirling pads, and heavy beats.

Not much is more endearing than the gentle voice of an elderly family figure giving the commandment, "Rinse Out." Dodge & Fuski have harnessed that feeling on the dubstep stomper "Grannystep," featuring "Dodge's Nan." Don't let the comedic value of the lead track overshadow the B-side, as "Falling" delivers melodic dubstep with the epic club-style anthem feel.

London producer Mark Pember is Meat Katie. A leader in the tech funk variety of breaks, Pember displays here a sample called "Bizarre Is Beautiful" that combines the break format with elements of house, techno and unique percussion. A techno remix from US newcomer Lightknife rounds out the package with a big room feel.

Could this be an early contender for one of 2011's biggest anthems? The combination of Alex Metric and Steve Angello clearly means a hit record is brewing, and this one is set to be massive. Sharp electro house elements with the best musical moments in progressive, and the shared love of a peak hour house music anthem equals a massive release indeed.

Axtone starts 2011 off with a bang - "Blow Up" introduces two new sets of producers - Hard Rock Sofa & St Brothers. Leading the way on the package, Axwell teams up with Germany's rising star Thomas Gold, sprinkling their magic dust on their re-vision, drawing on the best parts of the original and adding a new level of intensity.

Avicii is clearly confident in his ability to succeed in any genre of dance music. Just two close weeks after his massive "Street Dancer," the current number one at Beatport, he comes up with a cover of Eurythmics '80s electronic classic "Sweet Dreams" using a great vocoder on the vocals. Is this going to be the next number one release for Avicii? Or is this just a sweet dream?
