Nicolas Jaar Shows Us ‘What Kind Of Man’ He Is With New Remix

Electronic music innovator Nicolas Jaar (pictured) delivers a stunning rendition of Florence + The Machine's What Kind Of Man, and it is a sprawling, twelve-minute epic of a remix.

Expanding on the original's disco guitar riff at the intro, Jaar's remix focuses on instrumentation rather than Florence Welch's vocals. To top it all off, he takes the bluesy five-minute anthem and stretches it into an impressive twelve-minute marathon. He released the remix on his indie-centric imprint Other People, which is known for releasing rare vinyl from experimental artists and also work from his other music venture, Darkside.

The Knocks Unveil ‘Dancing With Myself,’ First Single From Debut Album

In the midst of preparations for the release of their forthcoming debut album, 55, New York City-based duo The Knocks have revealed the LP's lead single, a stellar new track entitled Dancing With Myself.

In 2010, The Knocks were Dancing With The DJ; five years later, they are just Dancing With Myself. The single is a downtempo, silky smooth track featuring a funky bassline and sophisticated instrumentals. The Knocks' very own James "JPatt" Patterson provides the vocals, singing about the streets of the duo's hometown. In an effort that blends elements of nu disco and synth pop, the track is in stark contrast to The Knocks' recent hit, Classic, and proves the immense talent and diversity of these two producers.

No word on an official release date for the track or album from The Knocks, but you can check back in here or on the group's Facebook for more news.

Audien Previews First Original Release In Eight Months, ‘Insomnia’

It's been a long time coming, but Insomnia, the newest original release from Grammy-nominated golden boy Audien, is nearly here.

In his latest, the 23-year-old producer takes the "Avicii route," delivering a pop-orientated dance number that is geared towards radio play while still retaining a powerful main stage vibe. Featuring standout vocals from upcoming young talent Parson James, as well as compelling keyboard chords and an irresistible energy, Insomnia once again proves what we knew all along: Audien has the magic touch.

Pick up Insomnia March 2 on Beatport via Astralwerks.

Entranced 12

Friday is trance day here at LessThan3 as Entranced brings you more fresh new trance music from the genre's finest. This week we've got some mental tribal beats, a potential future classic, and an unreleased vocal anthem.

Future Disciple - The Mayans Are Coming Back (Original Mix) [Perfecto Fluoro]
Even the official blurb cites Australian producer Future Disciple as a "borderline mentalist," a description that is further backed up by this track's title. As you might expect, it's a psytrance-influenced affair packed with plenty of brutal synth sounds and crazy acid lines. No big drops here--this is all about getting into the zone and losing yourself. The Mayans Are Coming Back is out now on Perfecto Fluoro.

Gareth Emery feat. Roxanne Emery – Soldier (Luke Bond Remix) [Garuda]
Next up is a remix of Gareth and Roxanne Emery's Soldier, courtesy of fast-rising British producer Luke Bond. Built around a feel-good drop and a big-room groove, the club-friendly remix ups the energy while still staying faithful to the original. With an IDMA nomination in the "Best Track" category for his recent release On Fire, you can expect to see plenty more from Luke in the coming months. His remix of Soldier is part of Emery's Drive: Refueled album, available to pre-order now ahead of its March 3 release.

Protoculture - Pegasus (Original Mix) [Armada Captivating]
South African producer Protoculture takes us on a journey into the progressive end of uplifting trance next with his new track Pegasus. Featuring a slow, evolving build and plenty of spacious reverb, this is a brooding monster that packs plenty of punch without being too in-your-face. Pacing along at a steady 128 bpm, it's a prime example of how uplifting trance can still be epic even when things are slowed down--it's good to go for the main room, but diverse enough to fit into a wide variety of trance sets. Pegasus is out now on Armada Captivating.

Shogun - City Of Angels (UCast Remix) [Monster Force]
Every now and then a trance record comes along that sticks out from the crowd. It's the one you have on standby, cued up on your iPod or linked in your favorites for those occasions when someone dares to suggest that trance is "dying." This is one of those tracks. Angels was originally released by Californian producer Shogun five years ago, and it's now been given a massive uplifting remix courtesy of Belarus-based talent UCast. Featuring an emotional melody, tons of energy, and banging rhythm, this is a track DJs will reserve for that special moment in their set. Angels is out now on Monster Pure, so grab your copy and play it loud.

Thomas Datt - Prana Flow (Original Mix) [Damaged]
Rounding things off this week is another track from Jordan Suckley's Damaged label, only this time it isn't from the man himself. Instead, we've got a new release from trance legend Thomas Datt. It's an exquisitely produced piece of trance that manages to combine a wealth of different influences. A hard trance-tinged rhythm and psytrance-esque acid lines are offset by the beautiful atmospheres and swirling synths during the break. The term "pure trance" is bandied around quite a bit nowadays, but this fits the bill perfectly. Get your copy now, and lose yourself in a sure-fire future classic.
