Merk & Kremont vs. Gianluca Motta – Upndown [Spinnin’] (Preview)

Italian duo Merk & Kremont has signed an exclusive deal with Spinnin’ Records. The highly popular DJ/production team is now a priority act for the Dutch dance label.

It’s an impressive career Federico Mercuri and Giordano Cremona are forging for themselves. After they started DJing together a few years ago in their hometown Milan, the duo quickly became a well known electro/progressive act.

One of their first produced tracks were picked up on Spinnin’s Talent Pool, a special app where producers can upload and share music with the audience. With the name Merk & Kremont spreading beyond the Italian borders, the duo began to release its first official tracks on labels like Spinnin’ Records, DOORN, Protocol, and Revealed.

Earlier this year the guys added to their recent success with another release on Spinnin’s main label, the popular progressive tune ‘Get Get Down’, getting lots of support from DJs like Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Avicii, David Guetta and Afrojack.

For sure, it’s been a triumphal journey so far for Merk & Kremont. Signing an exclusive deal with Spinnin’ Records means another milestone for the duo, moving from being a new name in the Dutch company’s Talent Pool to one of the label’s main artists in a couple of years.

“Back when we started to produce electronic music, releasing a single on Spinnin’ Records was a dream for us. Indeed, we are overwhelmed to be signing this exclusive deal with the Dutch label after only three years after our first release ever, but we haven’t stopped dreaming, it’s just that the dream gets bigger! We’re working on new music so expect great things from us!”

With the release of ‘UPNDOWN’ vs Gianluca Motta coming out December 4th on Spinnin’ Records, the Italians prove they are one of the biggest up and coming acts of the moment. Again, the track is getting full DJ support way ahead of release, including praise from artists like Calvin Harris, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Hardwell, Afrojack and VINAI.

KSHMR & R3hab – Strong [Spinnin’]

Now, the boys are back. ‘Strong’ is a vocally fueled electro tune getting DJ support from every corner (from Vegas & Mike, Guetta and Avicii to Afrojack, Quintino, Nicky Romero and W&W), while it also turned many heads the last couple of weeks as it initially surfaced as ID track. After it was revealed last week these two heavyweights are behind ’Strong’, the wait for the official release only became more pressing. But it’s out, and the excitement of R3HAB & KSHMR combining forces once more is only increasing. For sure, this is ‘Strong’..

Maddix – Ghosts [Revealed Recordings]

The Utrecht based Electro House Producer Maddix is about to drop what must be one of Revealed Recordings’ best tracks of 2015. “Ghosts”, available now, is one of the strongest songs Maddix has produced in his short but stellar career, an ethereal, anthemic and atmospheric take on electro house with a pulsating, thumping twist.

Fluctuating between a beautiful, synth-driven melody, towering drops, and the inimitable Maddix beat, “Ghosts” demonstrates the stratospheric sound that was present on the colossal “Riptide” – his previous Revealed release. Euphoric and intense in equal measure, “Ghosts” is another step towards the upper echelons of the genre for the young Dutch artist, a bold statement that will have clubs shaking and festival grounds bouncing.

On his remixes for Calvin Harris, Sick Individuals and Dannic, Maddix proved his keen ear for the intricacies of the electro-house sound, and on his own releases such as “Vortex”, “True Blood” and “Gravity” he made the community sit up and take notice with his unique and distinctive sound. The support he has gained from Revealed boss Hardwell, and other superstars such as Dyro, is more than deserved – The only way is up for Maddix, so catch his latest track “Ghosts” now on Beatport!
