In light of their debut headlining tour, “Collide,” Canadian pair Project 46 have set their remix of Andain’s “Promises” available for free download. One of summer 2011’s most memorable tracks, “Promises” is perhaps best known for being remixed by Myon & Shane 54 as part of their ‘Summer of Love’ series.
Project 46 now try their hand at remixing the nearly three-year-old song, with the final result nothing short of what fans would expect from the up-and-coming artists. Gritty, progressive synths and popping energy compose the duo's facelift, while Andain’s angelic vocals seamlessly blend into the track’s framework. Click here to download the track.
If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed or rundown, why not give therapy a try? Therapy for the soul, that is…music!
Embracing the therapeutic potential of music, English trance trio Above and Beyond has created a movement in the EDM world. Despite being formed way back in 2000, they still ranked as number 17 on DJ Magazine’s list of Top 100 DJs of 2013. They started out as remix artists, mixing hits by artists like Madonna, Britney Spears, and others, but their demand and popularity was off the charts, and they played at numerous festivals and concerts before releasing their debut album in 2006.
