Throughout life we all go through our share of “best friends.” For those who don’t move around a lot, then perhaps you’ve got the same bestie from childhood. And for my fellow nomads, we may not see our best friends all the time but we try to stay in touch throughout life’s changes.
A best friend is usually that personality that totally understands you and sometimes they might be completely opposite from you. Yet even though you have differences, you often find a common bond that forms the friendship, and the progressive house/electronic duo The Two Friends are truly the epitome of what an awesome friendship can turn into…a series of massive remixes.
The Two Friends is the production name for Los Angeles natives Matt Halper and Eli Sones. These dudes have been best buddies since high school, and after high school they decided it would be an awesome idea to combine their musical prowess and begin working on mashups, remixes, and originals. Of course, they both no longer attend the same schools, but they still produce amazing music together.
The duo has a lot of really good progressive house remixes and their latest remixes really caught my attention. Both of the remixes put a progressive house spin on tracks that have been remixed quite a bit, but they have yet to be remixed with an edgy progressive house vibe. But no worries, The Two Friends saved the day and put their musical spin on two great tracks you’ve probably heard.
A massive track this summer (in my opinion) was John De Sohn & Andreas Moe’s “Long Time.” The original track was probably underrated, but the Benny Benassi Remix really caught my attention. Oh, and I’m not the only one who thought the original track didn’t get the love it deserved. The Two Friends also felt the track was underrated, and they decided to take it a step forward and do a massive progressive house remix of the John De Sohn track.
The Two Friends remix gives the awesome track an edgy progressive house vibe, which in my opinion is spectacular! Not only is it a spectacular remix, but it’s also a free download;can’t get any better than that. Oh, but lets not stop there. Nope, I’ve got even more music for you to check out.
A few days ago The Two Friends released their progressive house remix of Chase & Status “Time” featuring Delilah. Now you might be thinking, “wait, that song has already been remixed a lot.” Yes, it has been remixed quite a bit, but the remixes are mainly dubstep or DNB. So The Two Friends decided to do something innovative and make a progressive house remix of the Chase & Status popular track “Time.”

TGIF! Ever since I turned 21 and started hanging out in D.C. more, I realized that my weekends don’t have to be so boring. There is so much to do in the city, and I especially love anything that has to do with EDM. You might think that D.C. is just filled with politics and buppies, but it has a cool culture of EDM fans that attend various events and just love good music.
Most of the places I end up going (which I will blog about) play house music, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about serious dancefloor fillers. I love a track that just pulsates throughout the club and you can’t help but to finish off your drink (or put it down & call it quits) and start dancing the night away. I’m not one of those people that can hold my drink and try to look cute while dancing to some serious beats, especially if a track comes on that catches my attention.
One of this tracks that truly caught my attention is John De Sohn’s “Long Time” featuring Andreas Moe. The track has a nice rise, a really good drop, and the remix by Benny Benassi makes you just want to dance, fist pump, and holler (not sure why you’d do that, but sure, ok!)
Check out the remix below. If you’re a fan of Benny Benassi and his remixes, then I’m sure you’ll love his remix of John De Sohn and Andreas Moe’s “Long Time.”
Here’s the original track + music video.
