Third Party Reveal “Nation” EP

Third Party’s emergence onto the scene has been one of great respect and continual quality. The childhood friends British roots seem contrary to the Swedish-esque progressive house they produce, with their 4 year rise being ever-more impressive. Now performing consistently at the likes of Brixton Academy, Creamfields and Las Vegas, and support from Steve Angello and Tiesto their big-name remixes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Sigma have certainly put Third party on the map.

Tightly associated with SIZE Records and Steve Angello’s community of progressive house producers, the duo’s ascension in the industry has been impressive. As their 5th release from their 12X12 series, Third Party bring a 3 track EP that really reflects their commitment to improving and not following mainstream trends. Following hot on the heels of their remix of Kygo’s “Firestone” , the EP brings 3 monster progressive house remedies.

Opening the EP is “Power”. And as the title suggests, it carries a deep, surging energy with it. With robotic riffs fading into the siren infused synths, the aggressive progression hits with a wave of force, bursting at the seams. Destined for the clubs and festivals, the EP opens as it intends to finish – at the top.

Swiftly following is their first collaboration with Arias, featuring Daniel Gidlund’s vocals for “Nation (Rise Again)”. Taking a more melodic approach to “Power” the vocal version gives the original (“Nation”) a big run for its money. With a pulsating progression and winding build up, the tempo culminates in a heart-racing chordal peak.

Available on September 25th as their 5th offering from the duo since undertaking the sizable task of putting out 12 releases in 12 months. And based on what’s been produced so far, we have no complaints!
