I do love quasar, reminds me of the time when EDM was still not so cool and it was just a whole bunch of people raving to SHM (London to NYC), although I don't dig the Say My Name mashup that much.

I miss those days when the SHM used to play the tracks on their labels and not the crap axing are playing these days because Axtone this year does have a lot of quality.

AXT024 Arty - Trio
2012


Sooo, spring 2012 is creeping in and the russians are slowly making their mark on Axtone now, with Arty and Matisse & Sadko joining the ever expanding roster. It was debuted by the mafia on a BBC show/set in 2011 I think, and eventually found it's way to beatport the 5th of March.

Looking back now, it's easily recognizable as an Arty song with the huge basslines just towering above the rest of the track, something that Arty is still known for. In fact, I think Arty makes one of the best basslines in the game! Matisse & Sadko were probably responsible for the big swedish sound they used to make at the time.

Anyways, AXFACT time! The main reason that Axwell/Axtone must have signed this, is due one of Arty's global breakthrough tracks called 'Around The World'. After doing some more proggy stuff for Ferry Corsten's and Will Holland's labels, Above & Beyond finally picked him up in 2010 I think, and he quickly became a label favorite (alongside Mat Zo). In 2011, Arty began to let go of the Trance/Trouse vibes a little, and he started to flirt with the big room game that was going on at the time. 'Around The World' was one of those tracks that kept the desired sound that people wanted to hear back then, but with a very unique and thrilling twist! This is the track I'm talking about for those who don't know.

Axwell picked this up to my big surprise, and he apparently loved it so much that he wanted to do something together with Arty in the future. Buuut as we all know, recently Arty confirmed that collab is dead for now. Shame!

Well, nowadays, Arty is still a pretty big name in the scene. He still occasionally drops by the Anjuna front, but his main focus is his album right now, dropping somewhere later this year.

Oh, and have I mentioned how great the art is?! The art is great!

I really like this track, Arty + Matisse & Sadko go well together on this, they brought their touch for sure !

And to add to the facts, I think this is one of the tracks where Axwell's touch was probably not necessary

AXT025 Thomas Gold - Sing2Me
2012


Awesome!!! Then it's maybe a good time to land on AXT025, a fan favorite!

Thomas Gold naturally already had some axtone time with his collaborative remix together with the boss for 'Blow Up'...but this time, the (ger)man unleashed a full original! What would later be revealed to be the lead track for his axtone compilation, was already hugely received as a standalone signing!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO0G1O86RUw

Sing2me screams quality in every sense of the word, really. It's a huge bundle of details, like many of Thomas his tracks at the time. To me, the bassline is where the most beauty is. It's just so bouncy and rhythmic. A realy joy to listen to through headphones. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the drums before the final drop are one of the best I've ever heard! A masterclass of production.

For the artwork, jens with another purple (it really was the year of purple back then, apparently!) background, and I believe it's the very first time he used one of his own models for the cover. In fact, Axfact Incoming, I believe the women in the artwork is Jens his wife!

Anyways, back to Gold. The track came in really high on the well known DMC hypelist prior to 2011 Miami I think, and was finally fully previewed by the Mafia when they sat for Tong. They released it in spring 2012, during WMC, and it shot to #1 in like a day!

Thomas really was the man of the moment in 2012, with this track as a crowning achievement of that mighty gold year.

Nice reading on that one, Vincent. I have to say I haven't listened to this one for years and while now listening to it I'm missing the Alright-Acapella :)
