Vancouver production enigma 3XIT takes us on a profound journey this afternoon with Switch. We visit our innermost thoughts and contemplate the meaning of life, before we dance and celebrate living at all.

Techno, trance, ambient house, and progressive house intertwine on the track. 3XIT’s pristine brushstrokes utilize bass, beats, snares, and synths. With them he’s painted an inspirational and lifting masterpiece, one that enshrouds us in optimism and hope.

I’m not sure whether I should melt into the floor or get up and stretch my arms out towards the heavens in the first minute or so of this spectacular new remix from UK producer GAMMER.

His remix of Superhuman, featuring smooth swooning vocals by Eric Leva, is out of this world. Progressive house crescendos, savage drops, and dark hardcore beats make this a heart pumping roller coaster ride. For more of GAMMER’s wildly thrilling concoctions, visit his Soundcloud, here.

This three way collaboration is could very well be the most exuberantly lifting summer dance anthem in all of existence. That’s a big statement to make, but once you’ve jumped on this ride, you’ll be agreeing with me, too.

You’ll feel ready to take on anything after jumping to your heart’s content to the high pumping progressive house found on the big room anthem. Let’s Go is out now via Spinnin’ Records.

Though Abyss is our first time sharing Notaker’s music on IHM, we’re no strangers to the producer’s compelling electronic tapestries, having been entranced by his dark melodic music in the past. The producer from St. Louis recently signed to Mau5trap, a sure sign that we’re not the only ones impressed by his sonic wizardry. Perhaps he caught the attention of Joel Zimmerman because his music is in part inspired by Deadmau5. Abyss is a cinematic masterpiece that fuses inky pulsing progressive house with deeply abstruse ambient electronica. Within that pastiche can be found various fragments that evoke Boards of Canada’s vast expanse, Aphex Twin’s acidic taste, and even the 80′s synthcore movement that has had a massive revival lately. Abyss is indeed a yawning chasm filled with dramatically gripping electronic magnificence. The single is out now and can be purchased from major outlets, here. For more of Notaker’s music, visit his Soundcloud, here. Abyss can also be streamed via Soundcloud below.

Vicetone’s new original is named Nevada, and considering the name they’ve chosen, this seems to be a sort of follow up to their first single many years ago, California. It’s also the the Dutch duo’s first single since they’ve return to dance music label Monstercat. Nevada, which features breathtaking vocals by actress and singer Cozi Zuehlsdorff, is a phenomenal way to mark that return. Its twinkling enchantment, warm melodic appeal, and steely edged sprightliness are tremendously exhilarating. Nevada is one of the best electronic dance tracks to come about this month, a rip roaring, gorgeous sweeping progressive house epic. Purchase Nevada from various outlets, here.

It’s been a moment since I’ve shared any uplifting, soul cleansing progressive house, and who else should we turn to but Los Angeles’ Elephante for a much needed breath of purifying energy and rhapsodic beauty? The producer makes a grand return on Closer, a sweeping electro and prog track that features ravishing vocals by Portland’s Bishøp. Feel all worries and burdens slide off your shoulders as you lift your hands to the sky in heart warming deliverance and near spiritual release. Closer is a free download, here.

When UK drum and bass act Rudimental unleashed a collaboration with Ed Sheeran earlier this year, Lay It All On Me probably made a ton of teenaged girls faint in glee. Now, we get to return to charming Ed’s vocals and Rudimental’s grooving tune, thanks to a rousing, uplifting progressive remix by Canada’s Sultan + Shepard. As always, the duo know how to build up eager anticipation and make our hearts burst with the most satisfying, feel good drops. The original is on Rudimental’s sophomore album We The Generation.

Last month, I shared Radical Something’s latest, a sublime sunshine drenched catchy gem named Paradise In You. Vancouver production act Young Bombs gives it an even more radiant makeover that bubbles and pops with a crisp summery vibrancy. It’s a remix that’s fully heart warming, bringing in elements from tropical house, deep house, and progressive house. You’re going to want to save this one for the coldest days of our forthcoming winter. It’ll lift you right out of the cold gloom in an instant. Download for free, here.

The Chainsmokers continue to deliver massive collaborative dance tracks with their latest, a high energy progressive rager named Until You Were Gone. While the fellas teamed up with an impressive list of indie acts on their prior releases, they turn to fellow production wizards, Austin duo Tritonal, to create this massive jam together. Until You Were Gone’s vocals, however, are still stunningly delivered by a singer songwriter named Emily Warren. It turns out that when you put two production talents from New York together with two from Texas, you get an exponential force of super progressive house capability. Until You Were Gone is a melodic and uplifting dance anthem, a feel good track that I can totally picture as a closer for a spectacular evening’s set. Purchase the song on iTunes.
