Back from Ultra and Miami Music Week and feeling a mix of complete exhaustion and inspiration. I have several releases to hopefully get out in early/mid April so stay tuned.
New Tunes 3.16.2011
Preview of the new Swedish House Mafia single “Save The World Tonight” featuring Chris Martin. Sounds a bit familiar (Sex on fire remix, maybe?) but can’t wait for this release. Preview of some new Roger Sanchez New Avicii & Sebastien Drums single, Snus. Avicii is killing it right now.

Booka Shade- Regenerate (Russ Chimes Remix)
Russ Chimes killing it as usual. If you’re not familiar with his work check out the videos from his Midnight Club EP released last year: Ep 1 Ep 2
Tiesto & Mark Knight- Beautiful World
Wouldn’t be surprised if this is the track of Ultra later this month, release is set for Mar 21 on beatport.
