Tyler Sherritt, New York-based producer, singer and songwriter, is back to push boundaries with his recent rework of Hans Zimmer’s “Time.” A ambient, profound piece in its original form, the composer’s masterpiece is a score from the motion picture Inception. Inspired by the emotions the score invoked, Sherritt set out to explore fusing elements of orchestral and electronic music, proving with his rework that he’s as versatile an artist as he is creative.
The result is a beautiful, melodic, progressive piece that defies musical limitations as we know them today. “With much of today’s dance music being about instant gratification and ‘the drop,’ I decided to take a step away from that,” Sherritt explains. “This remix is still about evoking those emotions from the original composer, and is meant to be a journey about how music today has no boundaries.”
In anticipation of his debut at TomorrowWorld this year, Sherritt’s rework is particularly appropriate as Zimmer recently scored the “Hymn” as the festival’s anthem. Moreover, he has released Time as a free download for all to enjoy. Grab your copy here.

This Sunday, September 14th, the fiercest duo in the trance world will bring their superpowers to New York’s iconic Governor’s Island.
New World Punx is the recently conceived project with which heavyweights Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten have been storming the globe for the past year. What started as a far-fetched concept at a barbecue in Ibiza has turned into a collaboration far beyond fans’ expectations. Fantastic DJs and producers alone, Schulz and Corsten take their strong, trance-rooted sound and twist it with a hard-hitting edge. Making their official debut in New York City’s Madison Square Garden, New World Punx rocked Armin van Buuren’s ASOT 600 last April, and retain the same high-energy standard at each of their coveted, sporadic shows. A breath of fresh air in the trance world indeed.
With the release of their new track “Torque” on the horizon, the duo will close out summer on the sandy shores of New York this Sunday. Bringing immense support from the likes of Khomha and Jacob Van Hage, this is not an event to miss. Grab your tickets here before it’s too late.
One month from its second edition, TomorrowWorld unveils its “The Arising of Life” theme. One of the most anticipated events in the country, the festival’s pristine production and expansive lineup are set to make history in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia this September.

You know Monday nights are hot when DJs Tiesto, Erick Morillo and Snake show up — ALL AT THE SAME TIME — to hangout in the booth with you on their off-night! Such was the scene at Carnage’s hugely popular “Carnage Mondays in Black and White” party at MARQUEE Nightclub & Dayclub in Las Vegas earlier this week. I mean, what could possibly be a better endorsement of your party-rockin’ skillz?!
Out to show the world that “music sounds better when it’s Enhanced,” Dutch rising stars Estiva and Juventa have been granted the helm for Volume 4 of the acclaimed Enhanced Sessions series and have delivered a sensational 2-disc, 38-track compilation featuring 20 unreleased productions, and tracks and remixes from the likes of Estiva and Juventa, plus Tritonal, BT, Dyro, Myon & Shane 54, LTN and more.
Set to release on September 22 through Enhanced Music, Volume 4 marks praised producer Estiva’s third appearance and 19-year-old wunderkind Juventa’s debut on the Enhanced Sessions series. With 2014 holding smash hits from Estiva like his 3 Strikes EP and “Wait Forever,” and highly-regarded releases from Juventa like “Superhuman”, “Move Into Light” and “Culture Flow,” Enhanced Sessions Vol. 4 is sure to be another credible benchmark for ‘the label that delivers tune after tune’ (Mixmag).
Bringing you some of the best in forward thinking dance music, the collection features three fresh, new productions from Estiva: “Feel Right,” “Voices” and “Let It Go,” and four new tracks from Juventa titled “Superhuman,” “Woolloomooloo,” “SHWDWN,” and “Torque.” Accompanying the lengthy list of premieres will be label co-owners Tritonal’s third and final EP in their Metamorphic series, as well as an impressive remix of their massive hit “Colors” from the compilation mixers themselves. The release of Volume 4 also marks the start of a new era for the popular weekly “Enhanced Sessions” radio show, as Estiva and Juventa join Tritonal every Monday as co-hosts.

Electronic music producer and unique voice Zhu – known for his anonymity as well as his seductive productions—has been heralded as “alluring” by Prefix upon the arrival of his debut “Faded.” Now, Big Gigantic, known for their interpretation of traditional DJ-based music with saxophones and drums, have successfully created a unique version of the song that fits right in line with the massive melodic house movement on the verge of explosion right now.
The reveal of the song comes on the wake of Big Gigantic’s Touch The Sky Tour announcement. The month-long tour launches on October 8 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH right after Big Giantic performs at their third annual “Rowdytown III” show at Red Rocks Amphitheater September 26 & 27 and with Bassnectar at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City October 4. The pair mostly keep east of the Mississippi, making stops in such markets as Grand Rapids, St. Louis, Kansas City, Urbana, IL, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta and more. Named after The Night Is Young album cut “Touch the Sky”—an electro-leaning dance track drizzled with jazzy sax tones courtesy of Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli and live drums per Jeremy Salken—the tour will capture Big Gigantic’s explosive live show at every stop. Sandwiched between their headlining dates will also be four shows featuring Big Gigantic supporting their good friend and recent Bonnaroo Superjam collaborator Skrillex in Columbus, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Amherst, MA.
Two of the UK’s most prolific shapeshifters, Andy Moor and Lange, have joined forces for a driving, pulsating track that gives the often-abused PR power phrase highly anticipated record true meaning. ‘Top Of The World’ features a stunning display of inspired synth work and drum patterns, melded with distinguishable trademark aural elements. The track’s added punch comes by way of elusive songbird, ‘Fenja’, with a hedonistic vocal refrain that is as contagious as it is resonant. Together the trance triple threat delivers a single magnum opus that won’t soon be forgotten.
As recently played on back to back episodes of A State of Trance, as well as gaining support from nearly every other fellow major player, Top Of The World illustrates how each of these internationally recognized icons continue to craft the sonic blueprints of melodic heart-thumping hit records.
