Welcome to the first of many in our new series: Electro Avenue. This segment will feature the best tracks from the world of Electro-House, whether they’re newly released or something we’ve dug out of the crates – taking this avenue will make your heads nod and your speakers shake!
First up I have a bangin’ remix by someone we’ve named the “King of Electro-House” – and that’s Lazy Rich. Granted this remix dropped on Beatport back at the end of January, it’s been on heavy rotation for me especially after hearing it on Minero’s guest mix as part of the Lazy Rich Show podcast. You don’t really see what Lazy Rich adds to the song until the 2:30 mark but at that point the drop is so heavy it makes you gush. Combine that with some sexy lyrics by Tegan and Sara and you have a winner.
Next is a brand new remix by Dutch producer R3hab. This kid has blown up over the past year with crisp productions and songs that hit hard. He’s been known to take Top 40s tracks and remix them into dance floor destroyers and this one is no exception. It may be one of the more typical “Electro-House” tracks he’s produced and I’m not in love with the fact that Chris Brown is involved with it, but hey – it works.
Here’s a song you’re going to either love or hate. It’s a remix of Flux Pavilion‘s recent track “Daydreamer” by the British House duo Jack Beats. They have one of the most unique sounds in the game and their take on “Daydreamer” is no exception. This one has grown on me so give it a couple chances before you’re ready to dismiss it.
Steve Aoki is everywhere these days. Touring non-stop and releasing track after track. He recently collaborated with Kid Cudi & Blink 182’s Travis Barker on a track called “Cudi the Kid” which I wasn’t too pleased with. But then Tiesto turned me on to the Third Party remix and I was all about it.
And just because I’ve been on a Jack Beats kick recently, here’s one of their older tracks featuring hot vocals and a typical-sounding Jack Beats….beat. I’ll have the LKiD ReRub for you soon, which is also older, but for now you’ll have to deal with the original mix.
Remember – if you like any of these songs, please support the artists who produce them and purchase them on iTunes or Beatport
