Following up Proxy’s recently released MFTEJ Part 2 is his Who Are You? EP, out today.”Proxy’s up-tempo title track is carried by an alternating kick-snare and an adrenalizing low-end chomp, the female sample in between drops reinforcing the song’s bad-ass attitude. Rounding out the EP are sufficiently rowdy remixes of “Who Are You?” from Pilo, Attaque, Trumpdisco and the Sneekers.”

Following their recent North American invasion, Toronto electronic group AZARI & III return with the release of their REMIX ALBUM out February 26 via Dim Mak Records. The REMIX ALBUM consists of some of the best AZARI & III remixes by today’s leading producers in the underground electronic movement. The compilation features classic AZARI & III remixes—including “Reckless (With Your Love)” (Tiga’s What Iz House Muzik? Remix), “Hungry for the Power” (Jamie Jones Ridge Street Remix) and “Into the Night” (Nicolas Jaar Remix)—as well as several rarities like “Manhooker” (Locked Groove’s Escape To NYC Remix) and “Indigo” (Voyeur Remix) and many other gems. Available for the first time in a single collection, the REMIX ALBUM gathers the premier AZARI & III remixes around for an elite anthology of electronic music production.

The REMIX ALBUM runs the gamut of EDM subgenres and sonic moods from the polished disco of “Into The Night” (Prince Language Remix), the tortured “Hungry For The Power” (Sei A Remix), the future synth assault of “Manic” (Disclosure Remix), the funk-fueled bass of “Hungry For The Power” (Art Department Remix) and many more. The REMIX ALBUM is the ultimate set of celebrated and rare AZARI & III remixes for fans and new listeners alike.

Just last week, we shared news of a forthcoming Azari & III remix compilation which features reworks from the likes of Nicolas  Jaar, Disclosure, Jamies Jones, Maceo Plex, Locked Groove, and many other top-shelf producers. Now, we’ve gotten our hands on an exclusive remix of the Canadian outift’s “Lost in Time” track from budding Los Angeles outfit VCO. This sharp and driving take on the tune will actually not be appearing on the aformentioned Remix Album, but will in fact find a spot on Azari & III’s Lost in Time EP when it drops this spring via Dim Mak, after the label releases the other remixes tomorrow. Yes, it’s all a bit confusing, but the essential take home points here are as follows: First, Azari & III have two fresh releases on the way, and second, this freebie is going to add some delectable dancefloor weight to your collection.
