We aren’t sure what to call it. Not deep house, not tropical, and not acoustic. There really is no genre for a tune like this, but we love it anyways. Piano fades to deep, low beats. Synths fade to piano. Above it all comes a unique vocal piece by Janelle Kroll, which will have you replaying the song over and over again. [Read more…]
Currently occupying a spot on Beatport’s The Pulse Chart, Gonna Get Better had previously flown under the radar for the past 7 months. It’s not until the song’s inclusion in the collection It’s All About Indie Dance released by Onelove, that the song’s melody and quiet simplicity is gaining attention.
Blessed with wonderful vocals from Nat Dunn, Gonna Get Better follows a familiar formula; an emphasis on piano chords and the kick of the snare during each drop. Check out this track and more from Nicky Night Time.
As Avicii’s sophomore album is released, OLWIK hops on the opportunity to give one of the tracks from the album a little remix. Instead of going towards his usual progressive house style, OLWIK changes things up with a pop/rock influenced version of the track.
If you give the vocals a careful listen, you’ll notice also that the vocalist sounds a little different. Maybe a little processing or a pitch change? Even better. OLWIK flexes his muscles as a versatile artist and gave the vocals a shot too!
Sometimes you’re excited, and your heart is pounding. Stand up, jump, sit down, understand you can hardly contain yourself. Might as well be raving. Throw on a banger, something with heavy bass, and hard, loud beats to aggravate your mind. Fist pump alone in your room, headphones on full blast.
Renown for releasing bangers, R3hab unveils a heavy track in collaboration with Headhunterz which will have you headbanging for days. It’s different from the others, and at the same time, is not at all. Similar undertones, an (almost) generic beat, but as is always the case with big name producers, R3hab and Headhunterz are able to add their own unique styles to “Won’t Stop Rocking” which creates a special sound within everything. From R3hab we have an exaggerated bass which progresses the flow, while from Headhunterz we have high notes on the foreground, which compliment the song all the way up to the drop. [Read more…]
Coming off the recent success of “Hustlin“, Landis has put his Miami Bounce spin on the progressive house track “Right or Wrong” by the Italian duo, Nari and Milani. Landis has been dropping about a track a month lately and is quickly gaining a following.
The track is a high-energy track with big builds and drops that you’d expect of something out of the Bounce genre. I’m still trying to distinguish between Melbourne and Miami bounce… accents of the vocals maybe?
Here’s Landis’s remix.
A few days ago Los Angeles producer, Zhu, released “Testarossa Music”, the third tune revealed from his upcoming EP Genesis Series. Featuring Gallant, this compelling tune is driven by a wandering groove and jazzy keys. The heavy Led Zeppelin-esque opening guitar riff is quickly contrasted by a pulsing ambient beat and fervent harmonies of both Gallant and Zhu. Hopefully we will hear another collaboration between the two complementing styles. Check out www.generationwhy.com, essentially just a giant word scramble, and see if you can determine who else Zhu will be collaborating with on Genesis Series.
