Let the Countdown Begin

Hey guys. School just started, so might as well post while I have the free time. Lots of stuff happening in the music world right now: the DJMag.com top 100 DJs voting continues and if you haven't submitted your choices yet, we strongly suggest you do so immediately by clicking below.
Armin's new album Mirage is set for release on September 10th and previews for the 16 tracks are now available on iTunes. I'm not his biggest fan, but the music can't be that bad when you collaborate with Ferry Corsten and own the title of best DJ in the world. Click here to preview Mirage.

Gareth Emery's new album Northern Lights is also set for release in September. It comes out on the 23rd and it features loads of guest starring vocalists, something that is very uncharacteristic of his music. Among those contributing are Lucy Saunders and Roxanne Emery (hot), the latter being Gareth's sister. His tracks are also available for preview and you can access them by clicking here.

The album's first single, dubbed "Sanctuary" gained popularity very rapidly as it quickly reached the coveted #1 trance spot on beatport. I consider the club mix to be much more entertaining than the original, so here is a rip from TGEP 105.

Emery is great and so is his label. Garuda is an original and awesome name and most of the tracks released on the label are awesome as well. For example, listen to this Stoneface & Terminal remix.

Tritonal - Suede (Stoneface & Terminal Remix)

Oh, and Electric Zoo starts in 4 days. I'm very proud and excited to say that I, along with fellow writer Ellis and 2 of our friends, will be attending this year's edition of the electronic music festival. 2 days, 24 hours of pure eargasms. Let the countdown begin.

Next up, a brand new track from the likes of Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner. Whenever you see big names like these written one next to the other, don't even bother sampling, just download the track right away.

Deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner - Animal Rights (Original Mix)

Ever heard of Eric Prydz? Its been a while and we've all missed him. The author of electronic classics (personal opinion) "Pjanoo" and "Call On Me" is back under a new alias: Pryda. "Niton" is a great house track that you're certain to be hearing in any club in the near future.

Pryda - Niton (Original Mix)

I won't even bother writing an introduction for this song. I've never heard of these artists and frankly, I don't even remember how I found this track. All I know is that it is awesome. Does anyone mind letting me know wtf Rex Mundi and Phynn are?

Rex Mundi - Opera of Northern Ocean (Phynn Remix)

I know Fred would've liked to post this, seeing as Diplo is his one of his favorite artists, but I can't resist. His new collaboration with Don Diablo is worth more than one listen. This is the first Diplo tune in which I can't find a Jamaican influence.

Good luck with your studies and don't forget to check hawtmusik.com periodically, assuming we don't slack off, for all your electronic music needs!

  1. Hands down to Stoneface being the best Dj name ever. Great post also.

  2. I know I'm illegal but I got the full version (HQ as well) of Mirage and I've got to admit it's pretty fucking impressive. It starts off super epic and has a few different Trance styles. From calm to really "aggressive" (as much as Trance can be haha), Buuren really shows off his skills; I guess he really wants to stay #1!

    And if you know me in real life: yes I can give you a copy/link.
