The relentless energy of Dutch house’s leading figure of the new wave of DJ’s currently emerging continues to luxuriate as he ups the stakes for a brand-new remix treatment on Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s progressive Calling anthem. Being a producer behind such ravishing club bangers as Prutataaa, Sending My Love and a row of remix cuts out of  Without  You and Maximal Crazy to name a few, R3hab has indisputably become a man worthy of upholding the crown of the next pioneer, of Holland’s club music scene, to be. His uniquely knitted hit productions are of as high of a standard to be compared with the productions of any top-tier icon and has established himself as a hard-working and massively talented producer at the very heart of clubland. The forte of R3hab being his cacophonic sounding chords, thick underlayers and monstrous sounds, the essential aspirant of the next generation of Dutch house lays his hands on one of 2011’s most renowned singles – Calling. Despite the fact that the original’s progression is rather hard to remix, the producer from Holland’s holy Grail of successful DJ’s – Breda – has made it clear there is no stopping his steady crusade this year as he teams up with Swanky Tunes, the Russian trio primarily known by Their Law, Together, Phantom and the Smolengrad / United EP, yet again to now turn the hottest offering from Refune Records to date into a full-on, rugged peak-timer to enact their signature sounds further.

Becoming a label platform of the highest notch thanks to an exclusive scope of nothing but club- and festival anthems, Musical Freedom Records, with a row of hits like Zero 76, Future Folk, Mush Mush, Epic and K2 out, brings back Tiësto’s recently released fifth single of 2011 – Maximal Crazy – for a revision from the tribe behind Wall’s tremendous Sending My Love single – R3hab and Swanky Tunes. The Wall installment that’s currently awaiting a horde of remixes to be released, including the recently uncovered one from Kaskade, has become their forte over the past two months and from the looks of its recurrent playlistings from heavyweights like Swedish House Mafia, its advancement is still on the rise.

The dominating arpeggio of the original is disassembled for a complete remake with only a couple of leading elements remaining. Flipping from an uplifting breakdown and anthemic chords into a rough, dark and throbbingly sweeping ambience of all the minor and major ingredients to fulfil a full-on set weapon of floor filling ability. the remix is set to release on October 26th via the record imprint of Tiësto, have a listen!

As recently premiered by Axwell at the grand finale of this year’s Where’s The Party? by Carlsberg tour, Hard Rock Sofa and Swanky Tunes come together yet again to unveil a new single collaboration in between’s Russia’s well-reputed trio’s. Releasing their first jointed single making in mid 2008, it was not until late 2010 the two DJ and production outfit’s combined made their essential break with the launch of Select Start on Nervous. Following up with the unblemished release of Rhea via Mutants, the Russian’s entered 2011 with a quest to excel most producers this year, both as the two groups jointed but also as the acclaimed trio’s seperated – a task which has come to gracefully turn into a fact for the ever rising Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. Coming back to unleash Feedback and Steam Gun, it was with great anticipation and a widespread buzz they later installed the Smolengrad and United EP on the celebrated label of Steve Angello and the innovative I Wanna Be Your Dog on Spinnin.

Enacting their pretentious signature sounds, Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa head towards the London-based dance division of Warner Music, One More Tune Records, with a new record, entitled Phantom, along with them. Having seen early support from Axwell, mashing it up with the classic tones of Café del Mar, Phantom is grounded upon the mighty drum progression, that have made the two groups identifiable to the growing fan base of electronic dance music, and evokes a feeling of big room that is certain to fuel this floor filler right up the global charts. It’s due out October 12th, have a listen!

Preview: R3hab & Swanky Tunes ft Max C – Sending My Love (Kaskade Remix)

It is quite impressive at what rate Ryan Raddon aslo known as Kaskade, is able to produce top quality songs, considering his new album “Fire & Ice” is being released in just a few weeks, you would think he’d finally decide to take a break. Well you couldn’t be more wrong. This being the first in a series of  remixes being released, it exemplifies perfectly why Kaskade is rising to the top as one of the most demanded producers out there. This remix of an already beautiful song makes it even more addicting.
