This week’s #TBT takes you back to 2015 with Duke Dumont’s hit track “Ocean Drive”! Just before you head down to Miami Music Week and Ultra Music Festival this weekend, why not take a little joy ride back down “Ocean Drive”. The Duke Dumont track that was first released back in 2015 on Blase Boys Club (P1) has become one of the electronic music world’s top anthems.

#TBT || Zedd – Follow You Down (Keys N Krates Remix)

Follow Us Down this Throwback Thursday with Keys N Krates and Zedd! This week’s Throwback Thursday is dedicated to two of my favorite, yet for the most part vastly different, artists. When I think of Zedd, I’m automatically taken back to my early rave days. “Clarity” has always been a personal favorite of mine and when I heard Zedd play it this January at OMNIA in Las Vegas a wave of nostalgia washed over me. Afterward, I began revisiting my older favorite EDM tracks and remembered a remix of Zedd’s hit, “Follow You Down”, Keys N Krates released back in 2013....

Take it back to the year 2005 with this classic trance tune from Paul van Dyk! Released 12 years ago by Paul van Dyk, “The Other Side” featuring Wayne Johnson, is the epitome of melodic, beautiful Trance.

Knowing that the song is dedicated to those...

#TBT || Flaming June (BT & PvD Original Mix)

Back in 1997, BT and PvD released a massive progressive trance tune that shaped the scene, “Flaming June”. In 1997, Brian Transeau (better known as BT) released his second studio album, ESCM (Electric Sky Church Music) on Perfecto Records. A diverse mix of trance, drum and bass, hip-hop, and vocal tracks, the album is a departure from what you would typically expect from BT – strong vocals, whimsical sound effects, and sweeping piano melodies make way into something more like what you would find in a club, but with the dramatic flair and musical complexity that is the hallmark...
