Next up on LE7ELS we get “Echoes,” a Police-sampling Swedish house Summer anthem from Henrik B, Niklas Gustavsson and Peter Johansson. Amplified by the Swedes’ jovial melodies, the Sting-sung “Voices inside my head / Echoes of things that you said” lyrics become a singalong built for the biggest stages in dance music, and make yet another strong statement for the growing Avicii imprint. Listen or buy below, and look for Syn Cole‘s “Miami 82″ to be next in line for release on the label.
Audien is definitely trying to tell us something with his fourth original mix in six months, “Ciao.” Using both a name and massive drop similar to last Fall’s “Sup,” the Connecticut producer continues to welcome himself into the progressive house arena. This track brings together that explosive, danceable sound with the more melodic trance he’s often recognized for bringing to the table, easily lending itself to summer festivals. Check out the preview now and expect to hear the full version June 3.

Remixes of Lana Del Rey‘s ”Young and Beautiful” have been piling up on SoundCloud at an alarming rate over the past couple of weeks. Since posting the Kulkid remix, I’ve bit my tongue on about six more in hopes that one supreme mix would arise to outshine the rest, and today I think we’ve finally found our man.
Marcus Schossow’s shimmery “Summer” house rework channels all the nostalgic emotion emitted from the Great Gatsby original, resulting in a warm and uplifting festival crowd please that should make its rounds for months to come. Listen in full and grab a free download below.
Empire of the Sun‘s “Alive” remix package keeps getting bigger and bigger, having first enlisting the talents of M4SONIC and Zedd, and now adding Britain’s Mat Zo to the fray. Unlike his electro-heavy predecessors, Zo takes an airy progressive house approach to the song, resulting in a sweeping 5-minutes of beauty. Empire of the Sun’s Ice on the Dune hits June 18, with the “Alive” remix EP arriving May 28.

On-the-rise Haitian producer Michael Brun has notched yet another tune on Phazing Records with his new remix of Dirty South and Joe Gil’s “Your Heart.” While this progressive gem saw its Australian release back in March on the extended edition of Speed of Life, it’s now available to stream in full and purchase worldwide on Beatport. Can you feel the love?
Taken as the first single from his upcoming Club Life Volume 3: Stockholm compilation, Tiesto‘s “Take Me” also serves as the legendary DJ’s first solo outing in 2013. He described the song to Billboard as the “perfect definition of what I stand for at the moment,” combining a trance-ready vocal from Kyler England with bouncy progressive house tendencies that really represent Tiesto’s evolution as a producer. No doubt you’ll be hearing a lot of this one from now until the end of Summer.
