The Beatport Exclusives This Week
Sydney Blu continues to establish herself as one of the top female electronic producers and DJ’s in the world. Her passion for success, hit singles on the Beatport charts, extensive globally touring, and musical creativity has Sydney at the top of the electronic music scene.
Originally from Canada and currently based in Miami, Sydney Blu's success has been built-upon numerous hit singles and relentless world touring. Following the success of her releases (including the chart-topping 'Give It Up For Me' on Mau5trap Recordings being one of Beatport’s highest selling songs and making Sydney the only female electronic producer to ever have a top 10 hit on the website), Sydney Blu developed and founded her own record label Blu Music, which has produced several chart-topping singles over the years. Steady support from global heavyweights such as Tiësto, Paul Van Dyk, Deadmau5, Robbie Rivera, & Funkagenda has propelled Sydney Blu and Blu Music to the forefront of the dance music scene, as well as the top of the charts.
Now Black Hole is proud to present the first Sydney Blu single on the Dutch imprint, entitled Chemistry. Chemistry is a full blown collaboration with Christian Falero and Lea Luna, and even moreso a perfect track made by three very talented EDM-personalities.
Solarstone takes Lemon’s heart rending synth-pop-soul lament and gives it the full driving, melodic & captivating #PureTrance treatment. Pounding percussion, slick sequencing & spiralling arpeggio lines set the stage for the main event, the poignant and emotional vocal performance of Lemon’s Roger Smith.
Retaining the melodic main frame of the Original version (which appears on Lemon’s artist album We Can’t Control The Weather), Solarstone reshapes & reassembles the synth hooks into a relentlessly ascending main room masterstroke. Lovers & devotees of the Pure side of Trance can be assured that its future and legacy is in safe hands.

Franky's "Go Nuts" EP features a total of 7 of some of the hardest "in your face" Dubstep cuts currently available, featuring two extraordinary singers: the vocals on "Animal" are performed by Skinto and Don De Baron; currently the big names in the Dutch grime scene. Skinto is known for his collaborations with the boys of 'Zwart Licht'; Don De Baron is member of the infamous 'Noiz Boiz' crew.
Moving on to the track "Feels Like Yesterday", we get to enjoy a collaboration with post-hardcore vocalist Stef Eggermont who built his fame in The Netherlands with his band 'My Worst Case Scenario'.
Franky Nuts took no chances and invested a little over half a year to complete this diverse, but most of all, hard EP. His career may have just started but for his reputation of a highly skilled producer, this EP is a superb introduction for those who don't know about 'The Nuts'.
