Australian producers @Feenixpawl make for a wondrous pairing with NYC’s @RicoandMiella in “Play With Fire”

FEENIXPAWL x RICO & MIELLA, “Play With Fire”

After offering up trancey vibes with MarLo recently in “Lighter Than Air”, veteran Australian duo and Grammy nominees Feenixpawl take on progressive house with “Play With Fire” which features the always listenable team of NYC’s Rico & Miella.  In some ways the sound is kind of a throwback to about 2013-14 when Zedd emerged with “Clarity” and “Spectrum”.  It goes pretty big and stays there but Miella’s voice does not get lost in the song.  Rather, you wait and be intrigued by what is a romantic story.  After other well-done collaborations and some worthy original releases a few years back that I wrote about, Rico & Miella fit perfectly into Feenixpawl’s plan, and “Play With Fire” is a vibrant centrepiece that should work well in clubs and at festivals. 

@Spirixmusic lends a bright progressive house spin to “Quicksand” by @Feenixpawl & @APEKofficial

FEENIXPAWL & APEK, “Quicksand” (Spirix remix)

Having the duo of Feenixpawl match creative wits with APEK in itself is a wondrous thing, but with remixes on top of that, it couldn’t get any better variety-wise.  So we have young L.A.-based Spirix stirring the progressive house pot with his remix of “Quicksand”.  It’s a downright pretty song, with a powerful but unbilled vocal which takes it to the next level, and would be a great bookend to Elephante & Bishøp’s “Closer”.  The remix makes the song glisten in everything that is shiny and progressive, adding to the emotional wallop and only reshaping a tad what Feenixpawl and APEK had in mind.  “Quicksand” warrants your attention and you can get it for free at the link above.
