Palms Trax makes rousing Essential Mix debut

This post was originally published on this site

Cheekily dubbed as the west country-born, Berlin-based underground star by BBC‘s Pete Tong, Palms Trax has finally made his debut in the Essential Mix DJ booth.

Real name Jay Donaldson, Palms Trax’ ubiquity in the dance world is becoming increasingly deserved as time carries on. He has bold sonic inclinations and an unabashed M.O. where he moves between genres and decades with ease — rare for someone as young as he. Despite being just 26-years-old, Donaldson’s encyclopedic musical expertise has situated him as an artist who’s talented beyond his years, if one were to see age as but a limit on such a thing.

Donaldson’s Essential Mix is steeped in a resplendent arrangement of classic dance tracks, from Angela’s 1984 “I Gotta Little Love,” to hidden gem house tracks from World Building records’ “Paraíso ’89” by Azura. His splicing of Azura’s track alone is a testament to his adroit crate digging, especially considering that Azura’s breezy Balearic business was extremely short-lived in the Italian house realm, she’s an act who’s slipped through the cracks for most.

Palms Trax has expressed he’ll be working on material for Dekmantel throughout the beginning of the new year and after listening to his deliverance of just the second Essential Mix of 2018, just following Carl Cox, one can only hope to see big things from Donaldson in the new year.

Martin Garrix drops off sweeping ‘So Far Away’ remix EP

This post was originally published on this site

Martin Garrix and David Guetta’s collaboration “So Far Away” has deservingly received its very own six-track remix pack. When the single dropped Dec. 1, it received split reviews, as Garrix’s music has long been divisive in the EDM community. Surely, though, if listeners hadn’t enjoyed the original they were sure to enjoy the plethora of alternatives it would soon spawn. Now, the Jamie Scott and Romy Dya-led hit has done just that.

Garrix has gathered six remixes of “So Far Way,” ranging in sounds. With an amped future bass take by Blinders, a more big room, future house take by Nicky Romero and a deep house dive by way of BLR, Garrix suggests that the track’s true grandeur is its ability to shine in a wide variety of interpretations.

Aaro – Indestructible

This post was originally published on this site

Up and coming Finnish wunderkind Aaro is showing early promise with a new original release landing via European electro imprint Tasty. “Indestructible” takes evident influence from early works by Porter Robinson and Madeon and gives them a contemporary spin with the same keen, methodical production approach. The young beatmaker has clear potential, and his battering new setlist jump starter “Indestructible” undoubtedly shows off firmly planted roots in intricately designed complextro house.

Gritty and distorted while altogether melodic and anthemic, Aaro’s delivers a high octane burst of energy that, half a decade ago would have been punishing sprawling festival crowds. Complextro house is waiting for it’s new champion, and fresh, emerging talent like Aaro have the potential to repopularize the genre in a few short years.

Bicep flex their sonic expertise in new Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

After churning out an innumerable number of classic house tracks under their unpredictable M.O., the Belfast-based Bicep found their niche, or perhaps a more aptly-categorized lack thereof. But such is what earns the Belfast-duo their wide acclaim in the dance realm. Considering the two began as prolific bloggers at their own site, Feel My Bicep, the very weaving of an inquisitive amalgamation of house and electro is in their blood. It should come as no surprise that the duo’s tunes draw from an array of material.

This year, Bicep dropped off their highly-anticipated debut album. The self-titled work was a stylistically expanse deliverance that served as one of contemporary dance music’s deepest releases of the year. It was also an album in which the two flexed their sonic multitudes of both tenacity and flexibility.

Bicep is now ending the year strong with an Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. In a two-hour voyage through the worlds of Italo, breakbeat, and more, Bicep divulges on one of the most meticulous masterpieces of the last year.

Howwler – Chapter 2 EP

This post was originally published on this site

Howwler keeps the spirit of industrial electro alive with the second chapter of his dark and gritty electronic novella. Keeping up the same sonic style he debuted on Chapter One, the anonymous producer’s next two singles continue to chew up sound systems in a flurry of jagged toothed saws and hollow synths. An aggressive and Gesaffelstein inspired work, Howwler’s second chapter has us patiently waiting for the third act in this enigma’s stirring industrial opus.

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based producer Tony Fresch, aka Dr. Fresch, has released his g-house rendition of rapper A$AP Ferg‘s “Plain Jane.” The remix is what Fresch refers to as “Future Ghetto,” with Ferg’s a capella over Fresch’s dark, booming bassline and nefarious production style, which combines electro and house elements.

Infusing Rap and Hip-Hop into his tunes is the name of Fresch’s game. The Ph.D in dance music has also remxied Gucci Mane‘s “Pillz,” and adapted N.W.A‘s “Gangsta Gangsta,” as a tribute to the deceased Hip-Hop legend, Eazy E –– the song that catapulted Fresch’s name to forefront in 2016.

PrototypeRaptor – Midnight Hour

This post was originally published on this site

Genres tend to come and go in popularity, and the complextro sensibilities of the later 2000’s are just waiting to have another moment in the sun. Championed by the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, Knife Party, and Porter Robinson’s early output, house music’s multi-layered offshoot is primed for another breakout moment, and producers like PrototypeRaptor will be there to set it all off. The veteran Texas-based DJ has steadily built a lengthy catalog of blistering complextro compositions, with his latest drop, “Midnight Hour,” falling right in line, available now via Tasty.

The track features rousing, syncopated vocals ahead of a barrage of growling synth arrangements and snappy percussion breakdowns. Reminiscent of a different time for dance floors, when electro house reigned supreme, PrototypeRaptor delivers a blast from the last decade’s popular dance trends with his own fresh spin on his latest, “Midnight Hour.”
