“Wake Up For The Night” is melodic dance floor bliss from @iamAlyxAnder featuring @CarolinePennell

ALYX ANDER featuring CAROLINE PENNELL, “Wake Up For The Night”

Following up the sinfully rich melodies of “Memories Of You” (which got to #5 not long ago on my chart), Miami producer/DJ Alyx Ander brings us “Wake Up For The Night”, another slice of dance floor bliss for starry summer nights.  It features Caroline Pennell, the singer/songwriter who you will know as a Top 10 finalist in Season 5 of “The Voice”.  Her soft but alluring voice provides a striking contrast to the big beats and shiny melody, sort of like Lorde meets Ellie Goulding via Kate Bush.  It makes “Wake Up For The Night” a different kind of anthem that will resonate well through big dance club speakers, and DJ’s should jump on this one immediately.  It’s also great to see a finalist from “The Voice” doing well, as like Alyx Ander, Caroline is signed to Nettwerk Records, and their pairing together is worth repeating!  Check out “Wake Up For The Night” at the Spotify link above.

Heart’s desire: “Memories Of You” by @iamAlyxAnder featuring @SreyDavihaunts

ALYX ANDER featuring SREY DAVI, “Memories Of You”

It’s one of the more compelling progressive deep house records I’ve heard in a while, and it may might cause races to the dance floor.  Miami-based producer/DJ Alyx Ander brings us “Memories Of You” featuring Seattle-based vocalist Srey Davi.  Unlike so many Dance/EDM records that are about escaping or burying the past, “Memories Of You” is reminiscent of an enticing affair where you can’t get that special person out of your head.  Srey Davi’s vocal commands your attention, turning the emotions up as needed, while Alyx Ander’s mix showcases some terrific build ups to drops that you don’t want to end. It’s great to see Nettwerk Records supporting “Memories Of You” as they have a wealth of electronic music history tracing back to their humble mid-80’s beginnings which launched the likes of Sarah McLachlan.  You can pick up “Memories Of You”, along with a half dozen remixes (below, including a playful Alex Preston remix, Alyx’s own slower “day by the pool” alternative, and Banx’s sizzling, mainly downtempo take) at your favourite digital store.
