Over a Year Later, Raiden & Bright Lights Release “Heart of Steel (Festival Mix)”

Man, has it already been a year since this track came out? Apparently. This week we have the latest version of “Heart of Steel”, a beautiful festival mix from both Raiden and Bright Lights over on Protocol. Raiden has kept himself busy while developing his style and launching his career, with even traveling to Japan and performing in a rock band. This experience has affected his own personal style, as Raiden strives to combine EDM with rock. He even plays the guitar on a number of his tracks! When he pairs up with Bright Lights though, move the hell out of his way. Raiden isn’t necessarily a well-known name, but Bright Lights will take him there. She has proven this ability with being responsible for the success of Porter Robinson’s “Language” and Zedd’s Clarity album.

We do have to mention right out of the gate here, that Raiden and Bright Lights release of this new version of “Heart of Steel” could not have been released at a better time. The “Festival Mix” of this track incredibly highlights the progressive house aspects and is just as pleasing to the ears as the original. We are expecting the festival mix to perform just as well as the original, as it will set dance floors around the world ablaze!

benny mayne Seduces With Guitar in the Acoustic Version of “bounce”

Wait, we are actually starting on a Friday? What the hell is this? Well kicking off this weekend’s shenanigans we have “bounce (acoustic)”, the latest from the intriguing artist benny mayne. For those not familiar with benny, he has been riding a tidal wave of success since his hit “bounce” shot to the top of r’n’b charts all around the globe. This has led to plenty of collaborations with Grammy-nominated/multi-platinum artists such as Williedonut and Sadmoney. benny has also now joined the Paradigm Agency, which has supported powerhouses such as Lil Uzi Vert, Skrillex, and Ed Sheeran.

It is about time we stepped away from the increased BPMs of progressive house and just wind things down to the bare bones. While we were introduced to benny’s original version of “Bounce” a while back as his debut single, we are now treated to the stripped down version that reminds us of a more raunchy and seductive Ed Sheeran. While this version does trade in the seductive groove for more romantic guitar work, it still seals the deal in terms of preparing for just a taste of casual fun. benny is quickly becoming that next hot artist that you have to keep your eye on.

A Visit From the Past? Sleuth’s First Remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Somebody”

It seems the more and more that the modern music industry is progressing, the more enigmatic artists that come into our field of view. Closing out our weekend round-up we have the first major remix from the enigmatic Sleuth, who decides to take a crack at The Chainsmokers’ “Somebody”. The real question though, is who the hell exactly is Sleuth? Some people say that it is just one guy hiding from the public eye while honing his craft. On the other hand, others believe that Sleuth is an underground industry that has been slowly working and manipulating the world since the 1800s.

While “Somebody” in its original form is pure Chainsmokers, Sleuth was able to change the tone of the track completely with his remix. Sleuth adds dramatic, sweeping synths to the track, creating an almost haunting experience. We feel like that this would find its home well on the setlist/playlist of a dark gothic nightclub. While Sleuth has added their signature touch, they still preserved the vocal work from the “Somebody” to capture the initial appeal. While this may be the first time we’ve heard of Sleuth, we are excited to see who they turn out to be.

Be sure you check out Sleuth’s remix below!
