VANDIT Records March Release Update # 2 - The Madness Continues!

Judge Jules - Monte Carlo
He’s back! Judge Jules is a man who needs no introduction (though we’re probably about to give him a quick one anyway!). Past master of everything from raves to the airwaves, he’s also a producer no stranger to VANDIT’s discography. Over the last few years’ tracks like ‘Collide’ (with Christina Novelli), ‘The Attack’, ‘Phenomenology’, ‘Fiber’ and others have all left crater-deep impressions on dancefloors. Of late the electronic music impresario has been back in the studio flash frying another speaker-reaper! ‘Monte Carlo’ finds the Judge at his most pure, driven and out-and-out trancey. ‘Monte Carlo’ roars to life with echoing vocal harmonic loops, super-loud claps, toughened drums, stretched, delayed FX and chords & pads-laden highs. Quick drops, with just as fast kick-drum bring-backs, the track walks the cooler line between melodic bliss an uprocking euphoric! A tune that have crowds on their
’re thinking Monte Carlo!), this one's got summer pathfinder written all over it.
Paul van Dyk Presents VANDIT Miami 2014

With a disc wallet fair bulging with hot new VANDIT Records material and only nanoseconds to go before Miami’s WMC and MMW season goes hot, Paul van Dyk has compiled a mix-showcase of the label’s hottest latest & upcoming material. ‘VANDIT Records - Miami 2014’ is a 12-track packed outing, with new studio-fresh audio from the label’s ever-flourishing talent base. In and among its house rhythms, proggy atmospherics and trance cornucopia are tracks from faithful label quartermasters including Judge Jules, Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Woody van Eyden, Las Salinas, Maarten de Jong and a host of others. It also contains fresher to the VANDIT fold producers, with music from Ben Nicky, Eddie Bitar, Jordan Suckley and Genix to mention but a few. Miami’s here: time to get VANDIT! With a more than a hint of south Floridian flavour, the future club hits come to the
mix quick. Following up their celebrated ‘EVOLUTION’-born ‘Verano’ and ‘Symmetries’ club rockers, the VANDIT boss has been back in the studio with Miami’s resident house/prog master Austin Leeds. ‘Parranda’ is the thunderbolt result, which sets a mighty precedent for the release. On their (right on time!) latest ‘Miami’, Tristan D & Ideal bring it cooler, housier grooved √©lan, as do Chris Bekker & Chris Montana with the incredible Sebastian Krieg Remix of 'Telling Tales'. Progressive trance? No sooner said than serviced on ‘VANDIT Records – Miami 2014’! Genix’s ‘Tryfan’ (part of his just-released ‘All Good Things EP’) and Las Salinas & Sue McLaren’s forthcoming, mesmerizing ‘Break the Spell’ up the mix’s atmosphere ante.   Raising the tempo with a flurry of punch-packers are Eddie Bitar, Maarten De Jong and Jordan Suckley. Respectively, the title track from his latest EP ‘Metal Mouth’, the techy TKO of ‘Red & White’ and Suckley’s sonic sucker punch ‘Access’ build the album’s tough-trance characteristics. Over on the harmonic side, Judge Jules’ entrancing ‘Monte Carlo’ and Giddy’s ‘Halcyon’ furnish the mix with transfixing melodics, while Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Woody van Eyden ‘A Night Outside’ and Ben Nicky’s ‘Brave Heart’ kick out the floor-quenching euphoric ballistics!
Tristan D & DJ Ideal - Miami
With Judge Jules’ latest VANDIT release out, about, and raising the Fahrenheit on club floors allover, in the space of a single release the label leap from ‘Monte Carlo’ to ‘Miami'. Last year’s Tristan D’s collaboration with the Judge (so fittingly titled ‘The Verdict’!) brought the English ex-pat/now Cali-residing producer to VANDIT’s attention. Three months later they’d inked his and Tangle’s ‘Vertigo’ coproduction, which in turn picked up some heavy rotation from many an A-list trance decktition. Now, just in time to catch the full heat draft of the Sunshine State’s Winter Music Conference, Tristan is back, this time partnering with DJ Ideal, with something that has a fraction more of the house flavor about it. This is the so-timely-it-hurts ‘Miami’! Tristan & Ideal's ‘Miami’ vision starts, tonally, deeper down the scale, through its bass booming, tribally progressive intro. It ain't hanging around there very long though!
&ivory piano lines and a majorly infectious, high-on-life synth notes, its mercury rises fast. With the quick release filters and spring-loaded FX dropping yet more house flavour into its mix, it rolls down the windows, drops the top and show the bass button some love!
Alex MORPH & Woody van Eyden - A Night Outside
Alex M.O.R.P.H. rocked it clean off the grid in 2013, culminating the year with his ‘Magnum’ release for VANDIT (“so tasty you’ll want two of them!” & “seriously annihilating floor-flooring gear” proclaimed MIXMAG!). Now, for his next strike, he’s putting the old team back together! Of late, Alex has been back twiddling knobs (both studio and turntable) late into the night with clubbing comrade Woody van Eyden. Eagle-eared listeners, who saw them cause all manner of floor uproar at the WMC VANDIT AllStars night during last week, will already have seen ‘A Night Outside’ make the biggest of debut splashes. With a coproduction history that stretches back to VANDIT’s ‘Turn It On’ release in 2008, with ‘A Night Outside’ M.O.R.P.H. & Van Eyden may very well have aced the lot! The track is built around a buzzing nucleus of atomic kicks, BHP bass and a full-
force don’t-mess BPM! Clearing the intro, Alex & Woody swing angelic harmonies, echoing piano lines and more than a trace of soul-touching emotion into place. As it reaches the apex of the break, there’s plenty enough juice left in ‘Night’s production engine to deliver a euphoric payoff that’ll leave the floor reeling! 

Las Salinas Feat Sue McLaren - Break The Spell

With ‘Say Another What’ (their last outing, alongside Genix), Las Salinas’ Israel Bicher and Shaulli Harrari picked up a DJ Mag Single of the Month award and a mass of cross-party deejay support. Their follow-up sees them leave the land of the instrumental and head for pastures altogether more vocal. Having previously cast her lyrical thrall over his ‘We Come Together’ track, label boss Paul van Dyk has put the Tel Aviv-ians together with vocalist Sue McLaren for ‘Break The Spell’. The 'Spell's overture comes loaded with long, held harmonic vocal sweeps, which develop the mellowest types of in-club drama. To that Las Salinas begin to apply symphonic string pressure and dramatic orchestral hits, priming the stage for Sue’s vocals. Immersed in elegiac pathos, she drafts both lament and lift into 'Break This Spell'. Running the full emotional gauntlet, her lyrics bring it the same heartfelt 
spirit that turned tracks like ‘Sun After Heartbreak’ into modern club classics. Adding to their evermore impressive canon (which has now come to include ‘Stone Pony’, ‘Chipsy Kings’, ‘Bada Bing’, 'Nothing Lasts' and ‘San Antoni’), Las Salinas are now ready to break hearts and charts with their most touching, brilliant production to date. The ‘Spell’ is broken March 31st.
