There’s a lot of great music coming out from down under right now – last week was the great new single from Helen Corry “Time,” and today we have an exclusive remix premiere from producer/DJ duo Denzal Park. “One Way Home” is an uplifting progressive pop single with a powerful chorus and a strong, uniting positive message. Actually, the lyrics are a bit open to interpretation and the message could be inspirational or religious depending on your perspective. The singer Jon Hume should sound familiar as the lead singer of Evermore, the Aussie rock band that had a major club hit thanks to a Dirty South remix. Speaking of remixes – the mixes by Arston and WasteLand both energize the track in a progressive/stadium direction, while Marek bangs out a harder electro and Fear of Dawn slows it down for a funkier synth-pop/nu-House take (reminiscent of Fear of Tigers, actually). While on the Denzal Park tip, be sure to check out their recent “Look Back” single with Eyelar, and their track with Zoe Badwi “Torches.”

The lines between progressive and pop continue to erode as producers are working with singer/songwriters to add quality vocals. Australian duo Denzal Park have straddled the line, remixing both commercial vocal artists (Kylie, Zoe Badwi, Wynter Gordon) and club-oriented producers (MYNC, EDC, and Rank 1). Listening to “Look Back,” you can hear the influences of both styles. The straightahead progressive/stadium house track is elevated by the vocals of Eyelar (winner of the Dutch version of The Voice). It might take a few listens, but the melody will definitely grow on you. “Look Back” is one of those songs that will sound as good on the radio as it does in the club.
