New Music Review: M.I.K.E. Push – Astrolab

Producing and DJing under the name M.I.K.E., he has been releasing records under the guises: Solar Factor, M.I.K.E, The Blackmaster, Return of the Native, Plastic Boy, Šand, and Push. In total, there are around 85 different aliases that span his career, because of either collaborations with other artists or adapting new aliases simply to suit the nature of a particular track. As a DJ, M.I.K.E.’s style is very similar to the music he makes, progressive trance with a techy-edge.

The track “Astrolab” is another fantastic creation coming from M.I.K.E. The drive in this track is incredible and will keep you engaged second after second. The overtly mechanical sound in the initial build gives it that little bit of extra we always look for in M.I.K.E.’s music. This track has so many different aspects of trance that I love its hard not to keep on hitting repeat! After listening to this track on my home system I could only imagine the magic that would happen if this were played at a festival or any large show. I guarantee this one will leave your ears ringing, in a good way. M.I.K.E. has done it again with this perfect blend of sounds we call “Astrolab”. I truly look forward to any music he releases and under the Coldharbour label, you can’t go wrong.

Review: Trickster by Grube & Hovsepian plus Avalon Ticket Giveaway

The time has finally come for a track to be released that we’ve been hearing in live sets for nearly six months. “Trickster” by Tim Grube & Mike Hovsepian is now available on on Beatport under Coldharbour Recordings and can be purchased here http://bit.ly/tricksterbp. It is also available on iTunes http://bit.ly/13BDlyO. The track was debuted to the world on March 1, 2013 at A State of Trance 600 San Paulo by Markus Schulz as an ID and quickly had everyone wondering which Coldharbour name had produced the massive track.

“Trickster” has been getting played in just about every Markus Schulz live set because it’s by his Coldharbour pals but also because of its unicorn slaying aggressiveness that is perfect for a peak time set. The track was also played during A State of Trance 626 by Armin van Buuren.

Continue reading for your chance below to win a pair of tickets to the Coldharbour Night at Avalon on August 24, 2013 along with some Coldharbour merchandise.


Grube & HovsepianThe magic in “Trickster” is after the first build up as it breaks down and a snare drum sound takes over in the background and it continues to build again and will have hands in the air on the dance floors moving fingers to the beat. This is a song produced for peak time sets regardless of the size of the crowd. Any DJ who takes their time warming up a crowd can easily use this as one of those songs to take a night to that next level with a full dance floor.

Grube & Hovsepian have showed their versatility this summer with two big tracks, this dance floor styled “Trickster” and the more radio friendly “Memory Lane” featuring Vice that was released earlier this summer (read our review here).

For those looking for a more progressive style of music you will not want to miss the “Trickster” remix by Italian producer Gai Barone. You’ll hear familiar elements of the original production of “Trickster” but Gai Barone did what a great producer can do, come close to creating an almost completely different track. The Grube & Hovsepian original will have a dance floor stomping their feet while the progressive and melodic Gai Barone remix will have a crowd in a trance early in the morning. The Gai Barone remix debuted on the August 8, 2013 edition of the Global DJ Broadcast and was voted the Global Selection of the episode. The progressive style of the track is a perfect fit for the Ibiza Summer Session episodes of GDJB.
