A name synonymous with dance music and a signature sound that has crossed the world untold times, Benny Benassi stands as a superstar amongst superstars. If there exists a main stage where he hasn't been, or a festival he hasn't graced, then it's only a matter of time until the prolific Italian producer sets foot on his venue. This year has been just as busy as any other, and we've seen the maestro release massive tacks, like his work with Moguai on 'Gangsta', and vet stunning remix Eps of his work, all while maintaining a nonstop touring schedule.
Now, it's your change to join Benassi in his first ever fan-driven remix contest. All you need to do is download the stems below, do what you do best, and submit your "Shooting Helicopters" remix to the soundcloud group. Everything you need is right here:
We always appreciate an act that continues to mutate their sound, and Brighton-based pair Mao Ra Sun has seemed to exemplify our adoration as their efforts have seen an influence from several sonic spaces. Their latest case here, a Dems-assisted piece entitled “When The Sun Hits”, carriers more of an ethereal tone than their recent works, and we’re definitely fans of it. The piece is technically a cover of Slowdive’s original, but that doesn’t mean too much in terms of the quality sound they’re able to create; it’s pristine and downright poignant.

Everybody loves a good Crookers remix. If you don't, you clearly were never around for the halcyon days of blog house, when Crookers singlehandedly damn near jumpstarted dance music in America with their remix to Kid Cudi's "Day N Nite." Once a duo, Crookers is now a one-man show helmed by Phra, who is prepping an album entitled Sixteen Chapel. Here, Crookers takes on Yogi's Pusha T-featuring "Burial," smoothing out the original's trap stylings into something more resembling hip-house. Unsurprisingly, Pusha T sounds fantastic even as Crookers manually flat-irons his voice to conform to the four-on-the-floor beat. Crookers is the best at being Crookers, and that's not going to change any time soon. EGHCK!

Delta Heavy's 'Reborn' goes under the June Miller treatment. Keeping the emotionally charged vocal from the original, Miller pairs it with a powerful gliched-bass that gives to 'Reborn' a heavier twist. Read the full feature via Thump here:

After a seemingly quiet year since 2012's upfront EP Down the Rabbit Hole, RAM Records duo Delta Heavy resurfaced earlier this summer with a fresh studio production called Apollo. Recently capping off their North American tour with the massive Nocturnal Wonderland festival, the London duo now readies yet another storming orchestration of bass and breaks with their newest tune called Reborn.
In what is their first offering from their forthcoming album, Reborn is nothing short of brilliant in both sound design and musical artistry. The tune starts with an enrapturing vocal and plucked bassline, conveying an overall sense of regality. It's not long until Reborn erupts with a beguiling melody dressed in typical Delta synthetics--dark, shearing, and impeccably programmed. The track's bassline mirrors the melody, enhancing the aggressive timbre of the lead synth, while the highly combustible breaks sizzle with relentless energy.
