[House] Jordy Dazz & Dannic – Fuego

No pun intended (okay, it was intended), Dutch house maestros Jordy Dazz Dannic could easily burn down a room with “Fuego”, a team effort released on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings. These guys and other fellow Dutch DJs/producers have “catchy as hell” down to a science, and “Fuego” only validates this statement. A big room melody designed solely to blow out eardrums combined with an aggressive, raw buildup will have you hoping for future collaborations between these two. Grab your copy on Beatport today. Happy Tuesday!

OUT NOW! Jordy Dazz & Dannic - Fuego

[Trap] Pharoahe Monch – Simon Says (Brillz & ETC!ETC! Bootleg)

Trap has exploded in the past couple of months, gaining momentum and generating more buzz than any genre has since moombahton first emerged on the scene.

[Dubstep] Excision – Ohhh Nooo (Lucky Date Remix)

Oakland-based producer Lucky Date is a seasoned EDM veteran, as both his remixes and originals never fail to disappoint. This includes his latest remix of Excision’s “Ohhh Nooo”, which is a scorching, blistering track that made its debut this past weekend at Electric Zoo in New York. What’s pleasantly surprising is that Lucky Date has departed from his electro/house roots and ventured into uncharted territory, and the results are brilliant. This remix and a slew of others can be heard on Excision’s just-released “X-Rated: The Remixes” on Mau5trap Records.

[Fresh] No Doubt – Push and Shove (feat. Busy Signal & Major Lazer)

After a ten-year hiatus No Doubt is back on the airwaves and releasing genre-bending, reggae-inspired music once again, first with their pop radio-friendly “Settle Down” and now with the Major Lazer-produced “Push and Shove”. Gwen Stefani’s crisp, pleading vocals sound like no time has passed while the unexpected tempo change between the verse and chorus strangely works. It sounds like the old No Doubt but with a little updating and refreshment that only Major Lazer could effectively and effortlessly add. No Doubt’s full-length album of the same name drops September 25th on iTunes so pre-order it here. Enjoy!

[Album Preview] Uppermost – One

French electro and progressive house producer Uppermost is set to release “One” on September 10th on iTunes, but for the mean time you can listen to a nearly 12-minute preview on his Soundcloud. Gritty, bass-heavy electro reminiscent of Justice and Daft Punk  pepper an exciting musical landscape consisting of strong funk and disco influences. This distinctly French electro sound has seemingly been absent from recent electronic releases, so it is refreshing and exciting to hear something so inspired and artful. This is not an album to be missed, so pre-order your digital copy here.

[Dubstep] Flinch & AC Slater – Moonlight

Veteran producers Flinch & AC Slater’s latest endeavor, “Moonlight”, off of Flinch’s Underwater EP released a couple months back delves into some glitch, complete with a soaring vocal sample reminiscent of “Thousand” by Moby. Your standard dubstep bass is the glue that holds this song together while the lead synth blasts the track into certifiable “press repeat” territory. It’s not your typical mind-melting, American grime but rather a track that exhibits a perfect amount of restraint. You can listen here on Soundcloud or download Underwater EP for free here.
