Summer festival season is winding down, but the events circuit shows no signs of slowing as fall lineups begin to pour in. Halloween billings have already started surfacing, and thanks to the organizers at Diskolab, Miami just became a top contender for Halloween weekend destinations. Mana Wynwood Warehouse will host some of the most in-demand electronic acts in the country across October 26 – 27, with a roster topped by RL Grime and Galantis, along with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike billed as the weekend’s special guests.
Almost nothing has made me as happy about 2018 as Deorro’s decision to return wholeheartedly to the bounce subgenre. In his latest release alongside Vikstrom, Deorro crafts a tune that will drive crowds wild for the foreseeable future. Deorro & Vikstrom – ‘D.F.T.F.’ After a minute long intro and tension build ‘D.F.T.F.’explosively takes off with
Deorro has teamed up with Argentinian up-and-comer D3FAI for new release “TITAN,” which has been released via Dim Mak. Deorro has been drifting between radio crossover hits and hardstyle as of late, but “TITAN” brings the producer back to the big room genre.
D3FAI received early support from Tiësto and is now making a new name for himself thanks to his big room remixes. “TITAN” showcases the best of both producers with its hectic chords and massive drop. Reverberating electro synths keep the track moving and make this release the perfect track to include in a festival set. Deorro is currently on tour, and fans can see him live at select locations across North America.
Quintino, Deorro, and MAKJ make for one tenacious trio on “Knockout,” a high octane offering rife with the rolling bass and energetic electro elements that collectively constitute Melbourne Bounce sound.
‘Bounce’ “Knockout” does, and ‘bounce’ from decks to dance floors the song certainly shall. The song’s reverberating basslines and looping vocal overlays revel as the clear standout accents of the single, embellishments that only further amplify the song’s adrenaline-spiking quality.
“Knockout” illustrates that there’s simply no such thing as a tempered release from the combined Quintino, Deorro, and MAKJ camp, doing so with an almost palpable intensity.
I will be perfectly honest here…I cannot get enough of Melbourne Bounce. So naturally, I am going to end up absolutely loving a tune involving Deorro. This little track known as ‘Knockout’ has a few surprises peppered throughout though. So how does it live up to the hype around a collaboration featuring three bonafide superstars?
“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.
The writers behind “Shakalaka” are as big as the production itself. All four are consistently booked at festivals ranging from Ultra and Coachella, and have each clocked in a fair amount of hits under their own belts as well — a couple recent ones being Deorro’s “Bailar,” and Aoki’s venture with Little Yachty and AJR, “Pretender.”
A couple of days ago, we mentioned that some serious electronic heavy-hitters were teaming up to deliver a serious festival banger. Now, the four-man collaboration is here, and it’s even better than we ever expected. Steve Aoki x Deorro x MAKJ x Max Styler – ‘Shakalaka’ “Shakalaka” defies genres and transcends into a new realm
Powerhouse producers Steve Aoki, Deorro, MAKJ, and Max Styler have just previewed via social media clips of a collaboration on a powerful new single titled “Shakalaka.” “Shakalaka” from the few snippits we’ve heard sounds like an absolute festival banger. You can hear big room, latin, psy, & mariachi influences throughout the track and it packs
Following Swedish House Mafia’s reunion at Ultra Music Festival 2018, the music industry is alive and well. As we near Coachella and all of the other music festivals for 2018, many of today’s biggest dance artists are gearing up with their main stage music. Today we are proud to present New Music Friday for March
The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.
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.
