Ladies and gentlemen, we have a treat in store for you this week. This week’s dirt features the progressive house prodigy, Pierce Fulton and myself, Tre. Pierce has put together a list of energetic diverse bangers and I have selected some of my recent favorites in a number of genres; from IDM to dark, rolling electro. So lets get to it!
Check out this week’s dirt after the jump!
1. Jeremy Olander – The Rose Law
I pretty much love anything from Jeremy Olander, but this one in particular sticks out a lot to me. This track has a very unique use of chimes and the bass line just grooves like crazy.
2. Umek – 100% Sure
When it comes to tech, Umek has his shit on lock. The man always has a signature swing in his grooves and this track just hits so hard without really overstating anything.
3. Fehrplay – Nightride
Fehrplay really came out of nowhere, just recently releasing his first few tracks with Pryda Friends. I first heard Nightride in Eric Prydz‘s EPIC radio show and thankfully the release came soon after. This track is a dark progressive house tune with a slight 80’s vibe and excellent use of vocal sampling.
4. Norin & Rad – DeVas
Now this track has quite a bit more energy than the rest. It has the signature Norin & Rad sound; featuring various cut synths and lots of space.
5. Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen (Alex Metric Remix)
Alex Metric is the king of taking pop songs and turning them into incredible remixes. In a twisted and almost dissonant fashion, he took the happy-go-lucky original and created a monster with a rolling bass line that just simply destroys.
1. Lil Texas – I Need You (Djemba Djemba Retrewk) [Exclusive]
Djemba Djemba (St. Andrew) gives us a strong and groovy first-class remix with this one. The Los Angeles native seems to get better with every tune he churns out, make sure to pick up this exclusive tune!
2. D.I.M. – Loaded (Original Mix) (Electro)
While this track came out a couple of months ago, I never got around to writing about it. It’s a fire tune and when it comes to electro, D.I.M. always impresses me; whether it’s his strong dark synths or his ability to blur genre lines and produce something completely unexpected yet excellent.
3. Tube & Burger – Slipknot (ft. Robert Owens) (Pleasurekraft Once Upon a Time in the West Remix) (DeepHouse)
4. Kiko & Milhalis Safras – Mentos (Techno)
A real techno bomb, Mentos grabs you from the start and never lets go. With a energetic arpeggiated synth at its core, strong subtle intermittent stabs and well-produced percussion; this track keeps you hypnotically hooked!
5. MӨDЦᄂӨKƬӨPЦƧ -The Zulu Calling (Afrika Bambaataa)
The Zulu Calling is a massive hip-hop inspired bass track that brings something new to the table.
