[House] Go Freek – Call Out

Go Freek
Go Freek
Call Out

Go Freek isn’t fond of the generic. On their Soundcloud they state they are “About as fond of generic club music as they are correct spelling.” We can agree with the first half of that, but spelling is important to us as journalist, but we appreciate their identity. We also appreciate their latest release, “Call Out” that was released through Insomniac Records.

“Call Out” is a quintessential electro hit that was designed for clubs. Most of the time, electro is aimed more at the festival audience, but here Go Freek pays attention to the nuances that makes an exceptional club record. There’s no shortage of groove in this single, and the vocal is just what the track needed to be taken to the next level of awesome. Go Freek themselves didn’t need the vocal to make the track, instead what they created around the vocal is a masterpiece in and of itself. They just wanted to add the tasteful cherry on top. “Call Out” is a necessity in your digital library, so head over to iTunes to add it to your collection.

Next Up in TMN Residency: Benny Benassi

Benny Paradise Press Shot

Our Artist Residency program is one of our most prized possessions. Every month, we get to shine a spotlight on one of our favorite artists, showcasing them through a string of exclusive pieces. We try to rotate from month-to-month, as well, giving you a taste of both legendary and unknown artists. Well, this month falls under the former, as we welcome in long-time dance music icon Benny Benassi.

For us, our infatuation began early in Benny’s career. In fact, we were in attendance at his very first appearance in Denver at The Church Nightclub. The anticipation for this show was overwhelming, partly because Denver didn’t have the bustling music scene that it does now, especially when it came to dance music. The other reason was, of course, due to the tremendous success his global smash hit “Satisfaction,” from his debut album Hypnotica. The show was one that has stuck with us to this very day.

After that memorable tour, Benny continued his storied career, playing festivals like Coachella, EDC, Beyond Wonderland, and so many more, in addition to releasing two more albums, Phobia and Rock N Rave. As if the millions of adoring fans, and a stellar collection of originals and remixes wasn’t enough to solidify his legacy, he also added a Grammy to the list in 2008 for his remix of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise.”

2011 brought another strong pillar to his resume, as the world became enamored with the release of “Cinema” which dropped on his fourth album, Electroman. Subsequently, a young, quickly rising producer by the name of Skrillex got his hands on it, and both his remix, and the original were cemented in dance music history. Following that, the hits continued to come through collaborations with Chris Brown on “Beautiful People,” and John Legend on “Dance The Pain Away.”

With the recent release of his fifth album earlier this month with Ultra Records, we figured it would be a perfect time to rope him in to be our Resident Artist for the next few weeks. Stay tuned for some exclusive content from one of the industry’s best and brightest.
