Jochen Simms teamed up with Luciana on the new single, Wicked Workout. DJ Ron Slomowicz caught wind of the electro banger and reviewed the new release for About.com’s Dance/ Electronica column, featuring the track as the website’s “Song Of The Day“.
“Great songs can be interpreted in different ways by the people listening to them. For “Wicked Workout,” the feisty new track from Jochen Simms, you could imagine Luciana as a clubber singing to a dj or as someone addressing their lover for some intimate interaction. However I don’t think it is a song aimed at a personal trainer (unless, of course, you live in GCB-land.) Rising Phonetic/Peace Bisquit talent Jochen Simms (remixer of Beyonce, Katy B, Cazwell) turned out an energetic electro stomper that breaks down into an almost ethereal 808 State “Cubik”-inspired groove before the electro noises kick in for an insane, erm, build up and climax. Miss Luciana is at her best when she is being playful and naughty over a sick electro track and lyrics like “Pump me a little bit harder, work me out a little bit longer, make me sweat” let you know that she is clearly in her element here. “Wicked Workout” was a definite highlight of Amsterdam Dance Event 2011 and is sure to be a massive hit on dance floors around the world. Watch for this one to explode from the spring into the summer.. now that would be a wicked workout..”

“Jordy van Egmond, aka Dyro, is another supreme talent the Dutch can lay claim to. In a little less than one year, the youngster has exploded onto the scene with the help of fellow Dutchman, Hardwell, and of course, a knack for creating downright massive tracks is a plus…The colossal energy and noise Dyro breathes into his productions are taking the electronic dance music scene by storm. In 2011, we saw a glimpse of what could be. In 2012, the young Dutchman has built off of an already rock-solid foundation, expanded his repertoire, and is primed for success as he continues his assault on the EDM world. ”

“Next up is a recent release that I’m surprised has gone unnoticed on my radar for so long. The progressive house number “Lifeline” features the whimsical vocals of Amba Shepherd and the remixing talent of Aussie powerhouse Dyro. Already having garnered massive support from some of the biggest names in EDM, here’s what Hardwell had to say:
“It’s massive! And I knew that before even listening to the track. My boy Dyro never fails to deliver straight up dance floor bombs.”
With an endorsement of that caliber, there’s no need for my stamp of approval. Already boasting a slew of hits under his belt such as “EMP” and his “Kontiki” remix, Dyro is definitely becoming one to watch out for!”

“Our friends over at Radikal Records just sent us an email that made our day. They sent through the remix set of U.K DJ producer Kevin Doherty’s “Lifeline”, written and performed by Australian rising star Amba Shepherd. Oh, and may we add Amba was the vocalist on Porter Robinson’s “Vandalisim”.
The whole set was comprised of 8 killer remixes so it was really hard to pick out our favorites. With that being said, we finally picked out our top 3 which comprised of remixes from, Pauls Paris, Dyro and Dave Winnel. If we HAD to pick one remix overall though, Winnel would take the cake — massive tune.”
