“Shakalaka” is the collective product of powerhouse producers Steve Aoki, Deorro, MAKJ, and Max Styler. An energetic, big room buildup and psy trance-inspired bassline lead into a Mariachi-tinged breakdown that implies Deorro’s Latin touch, before dropping into a colossal explosion of sound purposed to shake the dancefloor. With a powerful kick and wide stereo imaging, the track’s appeal stretches wide, showing signs of becoming a main stage anthem.

Carnage teamed up with Steve Aoki and Lockdown for “Plur Genocide.” The most impressive thing about this track is that it could be a contender to beat out The Chainsmoker‘s “Selfie” as electronic music’s most annoying track.
This is the first track I am reviewing this new music Friday and so far this week’s releases are starting off on a high note. Deorro has returned with a new single, and it is exactly what one craves upon hearing the name Deorro. ‘Offspring’ is a big room, Melbourne bounce inspired tune that goes
