Chicane drops remix album of eighth studio album: ‘Everything We Had to Leave Behind’ (Back Pedal Brakes Remix)!

By Alex Cristian – December 15, 2021 107 0

Enthused, I worked through the near entirety of ‘Everything We Had to Leave Behind’ track by track, as I felt those tracks had more evolution left in them. “‘Everything We Had to Leave Behind’ started life in freedom and ended during our incarceration”, Chicane says. Always one to welcome inspiration no matter where it comes from, the U.K. I had a new persona in mind for remixes, so I took on the form of Back Pedal Brakes and started tinkering.”

“Tracks or albums are never static for me”, he continues, “so once the lockdown lifted, I realized I was becoming inspired by the current breakbeat culture and wanted to explore that in relation to the recent album. They probably still have, but they tell me I have to stop somewhere. The result is a remix album as tantalizing as the original 14-track offering: ‘Everything We Had To Leave Behind (Back Pedal Brakes Remix)’. I hope you enjoy both the caterpillar and the butterfly.”

Follow us on socials “It reflected a lot of what I and I’m sure others were also feeling: separation, isolation, loss, and with that, a greater appreciation of life. electronic music phenomenon found that many of the album tracks had more to grow and more to give, so he locked himself in the studio again to put each of the songs in a new light under a different guise. It’s been a little over six months since Chicane dropped ‘Everything We Had To Leave Behind’ as his eighth studio album, and he hasn’t been sitting still since. Thank you to all that bought, streamed and found meaning in the album.

“Like everyone, our plans for 2020 kept getting changed. Los Angeles based producers LostKings release their new EP It’s Not You, It’s Me today via Disruptor/RCA Records. About their new track “Broken In All The Right Places” featuring Mod Sun, Lost Kings says, “broken is one of our favorite songs we’ve ever done. We actually reached out via twitter and sent him the idea and instantly he responded with “i can kill this.” So we set up a date and finished the record together. It was definitely a struggle being patient but we couldn’t be happier finally getting to wrap up this EP and put out two of our favorite records we’ve done. Mod Sun and “PS I Love You” as well as their previously released tracks “Me, Myself, and Adderall,” “I Miss The Future,” “Oops I’m Sorry,” “Mountains,” “Runaway” and “Hurt.”

The duo spent the summer of 2021 touring on their I Miss The Future US headlining tour as well as various festivals including Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas and more. These ones hold a special part in our heart and so excited for people to finally hear them.”

He embodies what we wanted the record to sound like so it was a perfect match when we got in the studio. The 8 track EP features two brand new tracks “Broken In All The Right Places” ft.

Ken Bauer revels his inspiration behind “Just Like You” and his future plans! | EDM Nations Interview

A: I am collaborating on a few Future Rave tracks as well as producing my own music at the same time creating a Future Rave Construction Kit for a big musical company that I cannot reveal just yet. A: The vocal! Ken Bauer’s musical talents are a gift that evidently comes naturally to the Swedish DJ and Producer, after playing piano from a young age Ken then took an interest in the art of music production and released his debut single just for fun back in 2014. His latest release ‘Just Like You’ is another unmissable hit that shows off his natural talent and skill for music production and is definitely not one to miss out on. When I heard the vocoded hook, I just instantly fell in love with it and knew I had to produce a track around it. Finally, what’s next for Ken Bauer? A: No. Whose input do you trust the most when releasing new music? How has the initial reaction been? Do you have a favourite part of the track? A: Well, with the risk of David Guetta & MORTEN disagreeing with me I would say that it is a blend of underground techno and progressive house. A: My mentor and friend Olly James. What was the inspiration behind ‘Just Like You’? A: Well, nothing more than getting my music out there for as many people as possible. Follow us on socials A: Great, the track is already supported and/or playlisted by Axwell, Yves V, Austin Kramer, Olly James, lots of DJs, Radio and Blogs and I am thrilled to see it being featured in so many private Future Rave playlists out there. A: It is definitely the breakdown with the vocoded vocal and the second drop. But also, the slower BPM 125-126 and arpeggiated drops or breakdowns and those BIG SAW horns! How are you currently keeping busy? For me it is the SAW leads with white noise attacks that are most recognisable. What were your goals going into making this release? How would you describe the sound of ‘Future Rave’? I was supper happy to see David Guetta start one of his Radio shows with my previous track “The Sirens Are Calling” that is still going very strong. A: I have few tracks lined up for release on both major and smaller but still genre defining labels. A: I am already super happy with the early support but obviously getting a final approval by the founders of Future Rave is always nice. But to be honest it is still early, I am a little bit disappointed to see it haven’t been picked up by any editorials yet, but time will tell. Who would you love to see supporting ‘Just Like You’? Did the release meet your expectations?

Armin van Buuren: “It’s a tradition to close the year with a year mix that holds all the best of trance and progressive, and it also gives me a moment to look back and reflect. Weaving together a handpicked selection of 106 tracks in its two-hour mix, this brand-new year mix from the five-time #1 DJ in the world is designed to guide fans back to the dance floor in both body and spirit. Music will continue to light the way, and I hope it will lead us toward the end of the tunnel soon.”

Follow us on socials The connection we have with music has proven to be remarkable one. Music has always been there to draw strength from, and that unbreakable bond shines through fully in the eighteenth edition of Armin van Buuren’s year mix series: ‘A State Of Trance Year Mix 2021’. It’s been a constant source of light in these troubling times and I love music all the more for it. Including the year’s most beloved productions from genre stalwarts such as Above & Beyond, Aly & Fila, Andrew Rayel, Cosmic Gate, Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, Kryder, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Tinlicker and of course Armin van Buuren himself, the mix album serves as a reminder that our love for music can help us overcome any obstacle or setback, as brilliantly illustrated by the spoken-word intro and outro. Especially in recent times, it has helped us stand united whilst offering the spark of hope that lights up the road ahead. This year, I am more grateful than ever for having music in my life.

Jacob Colon told us about the story behind ‘Tu Sabe’ | EDM Nations Interview!

By Alex Cristian – December 13, 2021 77 0

Not really. Where can we go to listen and buy ‘Tu Sabe’? I’ve been listening to a lot of reggaeton lately which has given me some new ideas when blending urban Latin with my drum sound. Is there any more music we can look forward to hearing from you? Jacob Colon strikes again with his brand-new release ‘Tu Sabe’, dropping on 06/09/2021 with the imprint that always delivers – ‘Made 2 Move Records’. How would you describe ‘Tu Sabe’ for those who have not heard it yet? Absolutely. Use what inspires you to make a sound instead of copying someone else. 

Where did you record ‘Tu Sabe’? This track has more of a reggaeton vibe. It’s out on all platforms. I have a small circle of friends that I send my promos to before I actually release them. In my home studio. These guys are big time producers, so their opinion is great to have. Tell us the story behind ‘Tu Sabe’? Where did you gain inspiration from for this track? Once I had the vocal structured correctly, the rest of the song came easily. How would you compare this track to some of your other releases? It’s a cool blend of dembow, reggaeton and afro house. It was just about placing the right pieces together. Keep it original. I also have a big announcement on where I’ll be playing next. Armed with a discography of club-ready anthems already behind him like ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘Desert Storm’, and his latest release ‘Eyes So Low’, it is clear to see that Jacob has been crushing 2021 this far. Jacob Colon is without doubt becoming one of the most reliable and consistent Producers in his format with the release production line showing no sign of slowing down any time soon. You can expect to be treated to that Latin inspired groove and undeniable House funk that many of his fans have fallen in love with. I have more releases coming up in the next few weeks. As always, I started creating a solid drum groove then took it from there. Not much of a story with this song. Follow us on socials Have you got any top tips for song writing? Jacob Colon

Whose input do you trust the most when releasing new music? Did you have any struggles making this track?
