Argentina’s electronic music scene is on fire. Bursting with groundbreaking artists, a vibrant club scene, and a festival calendar that could rival any other country on the planet, it’s no wonder that the top DJs in the world compete to play some of the most prestigious and exciting venues in Argentina. Two Argentinian artists that have managed to gain notoriety in the international dance music scene are John Joseph and Javier Benitez. Not only have the duo released music on well-regarded labels like Stripped Digital, Modern Agenda, and MNL, their hard work has caused their music to become regularly touted by the world’s best DJs such as Hernan Cattaneo, Danny Tenaglia, Petar Dundov and many more. Even more notable is the fact that John and Javier were remixed by the beloved Nick Muir, one half of the iconic and groundbreaking duo Bedrock along with John Digweed. Pangea managed to sign ‘No Die’ from John and Joseph late last year after hearing Nick Muir play it at a festival, and it was only fitting that we enlisted some of the most exciting and sought-after producers in the scene today to remix the track.

Each track aims to provide the listener with a different type of listening pleasure. The Original Mix can be described as a proper fusion of a hypnotic techno vibe and their progressive roots. Its energy will work on both techno and progressive dance floors alike when mixed in properly. The first remix comes courtesy of Canada’s own Micah. Micah is a household name in the progressive dance scene due to his previous work with Release Records, Global Underground and his currently hot Ruhnsong label. Micah delivers a melodic yet punchy progressive rendition of the Original that is smooth and extremely dancefloor-friendly but also delivers Micah’s trademark warm and inviting sound. The uber-talented Nomad in the Dark never disappoints, stripping down the Original and turning the melody on its head to deliver a sonically pleasing acid lased dancefloor listening experience. Last but not least, fellow Argentinian and Pangea resident artist Alejandro R showcases his deeper side by taking a more bipolar approach to the
