Mixmag Non-Reviews

Recently got in contact with Mixmag about trying to get some work experience. They ummed and erred and I never heard back from them, no sweat but they did ask me to write two reviews to demonstrate any skills I might have had. Not sure if they wanted journalism students, if so don't know why. But I'm not bitter. Anyway here they are.

Eric Prydz)
2Night - (Original Mix)

Its been a busy year for Eric Prydz with his world premiere of EPIC back in April and more recently his Tonight residency with Annie Mac on the Amnesia terrace. However that hasn’t stopped the beanie wearing Swede from producing another elevating anthem to remind us summer wasn’t that long ago. Released on Pryda recordings the track has all the progressive hallmarks of his previous work with the string like leads complimented by crisp percussion. The melodic breakdowns build with FX rises are both classic Prydz but it’s the echoing piano riff that provides the real energy which will have party-goers reaching for the sky in no time. Already named as Zane Lowe’s hottest record expect to hear this getting played out when the DJ wants nothing more than to reminisce about Ibiza. 

                                            For such an uplifting song, I've seen happier people.

Wolfgang Gartner
Weekend In America (Extended Versions)
Ultra Records

California’s and Ultra’s golden boy of electro house let’s loose an aural attack with his first studio album. Since emerging onto the electronic dance scene Joey Youngman has proved to be at the forefront of experimentation with his unique blend of saturated basslines and glitchy leads. Weekend In America could very well be Wolfie’s love letter to analog with tracks like Menage A Trois almost falling apart with hard synth lines. The album also shows Gartner’s move towards the more commercial with vocals from Will.I.Am, Eve and Jim Jones amongst others. Unfortunately these add little excitement to the album and it the established bangers like Illmerica, Space Junk and The Way It Was that will really get the electro hounds going.
