Talia Coles - See You Again

This is the latest single from the singer/songwriter. The Electro/Pop song is extremely catchy and club-ready. Talia's vocals are sexy and playful. The remixes by Razor N Guido are really hot. They transformed the already danceable song into an even bigger floorfiller. Talia's vocals sound even better with the new production. The Duhb loses most of the vocals but is a hard, thrilling mix.

Oh Land - Sun Of A Gun

This is the Danish singer's latest single. Her vocal style is really unusual and hard to describe. She sounds cute yet mysterious. The original is a genius blend of chilled electro/pop with a hint of swing. There are remixes of this by Yuksek, Savage Skulls, and Jonathan Peters. Yuksek toughens things up losing most of the chill aspect. Savage Skulls do the same, however, this one is a lot more energetic. Jonathan Peters delivers a stunning set of mixes. They are chilled yet hard-hitting. The vocals float beautifully over the layered production. Overall, the entire package is excellent.

Nick Harvey Presents Halo - Pure Love (Remixes)

The highly anticipated remix package for "Pure Love" has been released today! Vibelicious, Aulden Brown, Audio Assembly, Matt Moss, Taz, and Brent Hensley provide the remixes this time around. Vibelicious provide a chilled, yet danceable mix. Aulden Brown's minimal electro/house mix is good. Audio Assembly's interpretation is drummy and driving. Their mix best utilizes the vocals. Matt Moss's circuit-oriented treatment is energetic as well. Taz's mix is a tribal dub using only some of the vocal. The real action kicks in during the second half. Brent Hensley's mix is tribal as well. His mix calls to mind some of Hex Hector's darker mixes from the earlier part of the 2000's. Closing out the package are two dubs by Nick Harvey and Audio Assembly. Nick Harvey's dub is a minimal, percussive piece suitable for afterhours. This one would also work well when layered with the break of a synthy track. The Audio Assembly dub is largely based on the vocal version, but is a bit more underground sounding. Overall, every mix on this package is really good.

Tiffany Evans - I'll Be There

This is the lead single off of her upcoming second album. In its original version, it is an uplifting, powerful song. Tiffany delivers a superb vocal performance on this one. The midtempo ballad is transformed for the dancefloor by remixers DJ Escape & Tony Coluccio, Karmatronic, and Wawa. Escape and Coluccio turn the song into a melodic big room anthem. Despite the hard nature of the production, the integrity of the song is maintained. Karmatronic's mix is tribal as well, but not as dark. Wawa's is milder, on the funkier house side. Overall, all versions of the song are excellent, in addition to the original.

Tino Coury - Up Against The Wall

Following up his debut single "Diary" is his new one "Up Against The Wall." The Electro/Dance/Pop song is much catchier and better showcases Tino's vocals. He is much more in his element with a song like this. The production is gritty and energetic. The remix by Jump Smokers adds some additional rap, plus a grimier Electro sound. The original is the better version though.

Britney Spears - Hold It Against Me

This is the highly anticipated lead single off of her new album due in the Spring. Produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke, "Hold It Against Me" is an Electro/Pop club-banger with just a hint of Dubstep. The lyrics are insanely catchy and are classic Britney. Her vocals are cute and flirty. These sound a lot less processed than the ones on her last couple of albums. The bridge is where the Dubstep production comes in. Overall, this is a great start to her new album era.

Annie Lennox - Universal Child (Remixes)

This special song was recently included on Annie's Holiday album A Cornucopia Christmas. Originally a ballad, the song has been remixed for the dancefloor by Bellatrax. It's an uplifting electro/house mix. The production is simply beautiful. Although this song may seem like an unlikely candidate for the remix treatment, it works very well.
