Shout out to Cadence Weapon Hope In Dirt City for his Polaris Long List Nomination!

The 2012 Polaris Long List was announced today (June 14) at The Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver, BC.

Polaris Founder and Executive Director Steve Jordan was pretty excited about the List.

"The year's list deliciously illustrates the burgeoning sense of community in our jury," he said. "Almost half of the selections on this list were the direct result of passionate recommendations made by individual members to their peers. We hope the ultimate result of this dialogue will likewise inform the taste of adventurous music lovers from Canada and the world."

DVAS "Questions" Remixes from Adam K, Enton Mushi and James Bradshaw Now Available On iTunes

After an exclusive run on Beatport  and holding down the #39 spot on the Prog Top 100, DVAS "Questions" Remixes by Adam K, Enton Mushi Music, and James Bradshaw is now available on iTunes.

Fresh off his monster track "Tomahawk" alongside BT and out on Armin Van Buuren's Armind imprint, ADAM K drops a serious bomb with a tough main room prog stormer.  After a brief hiatus, Hotbox Digital returns with an absolute monster of a track that showcases our very own DVAS “Questions” getting the royal remix treatment. 

 This mix has been getting serious heat from Adam's SiriusXM Radio show, and Podcast, as well as in his live sets.

Also included on the trance tip from Toronto's rising talent Enton Mushi who brings a driving, melodic remix that layers the lush vocal over rolling percussion and smooth chord progressions.

Lastly, 2 time Juno award winner James Bradshaw gives us a more chilled out, luscious club mix perfect for early night grooves or terrace vibes that brilliantly showcases DVAS' rich vocals over moody, memorable synths.

Check out a preview of Adam K's mix on YouTube

Get it now at iTunes.
