“Losing You” from Ephixa and Laura Brehm is a cosmic journey through space, time, and progressive vibes.
Losing You – Ephixa and Laura Brehm [Progressive House:]
It’s hard to go wrong with Monstercat as the depth and variety of the label certainly has something for everyone. “Losing You” will scratch your progressive house itch while providing some very spaced-out IDM vibes.
Canadian producer James Leusink, better known as Ephixa, and Monstercat songstress Laura Brehm helm this one, and it’s definitely one to get lost in.
Brehm’s vocals set the tone for a journey through space, time, making one contemplate the inner fabrics of the universe, or something damn near it. Underground beats coalesce into a cosmic wonderland worth checking out.

“Nuclear Lethargy” is the third single off Lane 8’s upcoming January album, “Reviver”
“Nuclear Lethargy” is the third single from Lane 8’s upcoming album Reviver (dropping Jan 21). Lane 8 never seems to disappoint with their amazingly creative and deep soundscapes. “Nuclear Lethargy” is everything progressive is and should be.
Marrzaan’s remix of Utada Hikaru’s “Sanctuary” took me by surprise. They’ve also got numerous remixes from Nier Replicant, Final Fantasy and more.
Stop by video game music remixer, Marrzaan’s Youtube Channel for a visit. They’ve got some great remixes and covers of songs from games like Kingdom Hearts, Nier Replicant, Monster Hunter Rise, the Final Fantasy series and more.
I had my reservations seeing a remix of the already a masterpiece “Sanctuary” from Kingdom Hearts II, but this remix more than does justice. Seeing some of my favorite games, particularly RPGs, means I’m certainly going to be diving deeper through their uploads later!
Chicago native, John Summit releases progressive monster “Human” with backup from Echoes.
Deep House Collection
Got some excellent deep house from Chicago native John Summit to share today. First up is his recent release “Human” with backup from Echoes giving strong progressive house with touches of uplifting trance.
Second up is his amazing tech-house number, “Make Me Feel”. Personally, I actually really seem to like the Radio Edit of “Make Me Feel”, it seems to be the only one that repeats the leadup to the hook more than once. Check them both out below:
Summit has been active in the scene releasing a number of original tracks and collaborations with the likes of Sofi Tukker. Learn more about John Summit on his website and check out some of his other releases.

Animadrop’s Aethra is the embodiment of both old era and new wave trance.
[Transcendent Trance:] Aethra – Animadrop
Animadrop brings all the feels with this absolutely uplifting embodiment of trance “Aethra”. Multiple trance synth filled drops, hypnotizing vocals and an overall air of transcending time abound. This 2019 cut feels like it easily could’ve released in the 2010s era of industrial trance music capturing and updating the allure, and power of the genre.
Check out Aethra and more from Animadrop on Soundcloud.
Tchami’s remix of Justin Martin’s “Stay” is the old Tchami many of us fell in love with back in 2013.
Stay (feat. Dalilah) [Tchami Remix] – Justin Martin
It’s hard not to dance to this banger of a tune from Justin Martin, remixed by Tchami. “Stay” with vocal assistance from Dalilah, just as the lyrics explain, knows what we need. This song is everything we need. This is the Tchami that I fell in love with in 2013 after hearing classics like “Go Deep”, “Promesses” and his remix of French Montana’s “Shot Caller”.
The blurred lines between future house, big room and ambient chill-out music bring back memories that I thought were locked away in my mind from almost a decade ago. I feel happy to have them return and can’t help but smile when I listen to this tune.
