I’ve managed to collect three really dope tunes for you guys today, all released this week and all unique in their own way. There’s something for everyone with a track in Electro-House, Tech-House, and Dubstep. Right-click “Save As” to sample, but don’t forget to support the artists and purchase the tracks if you like them.
First up is a treat from one of my favorite artists in the past year, and by far one of my top-3 Tech-House acts: Pleasurekraft. I’ve liked 100% of the tracks they’ve put out because they are about as unique as they come, yet the funk level is at a record high. The duo take German producer Eric Sneo‘s “Shut Up and Dance“, which is already a Tech-House groove, and put their signature touch on it. They add more elements to the tune and give you that full-bodied dance experience that not all producers know how to do.
Next is a brand new original from juggernaut Laidback Luke with his long-awaited “Cambodia”. When I heard things drop at the one minute mark I knew I had to post this one. “Cambodia” has a sound that seems a bit different for Laidback Luke, but it’s one that I really like. The track is funky, yet goes hard enough to straddle the line between Tech-House and Electro-House. Whatever you want to call it, this one should have your head nodding and the dance floors moving. Personally I’m anxious to try it out in a DJ set because I think the crowd reaction will be a positive one (and hopefully I’ll hear it being bumped at Electric Zoo this weekend!). This track was released for free on Beat My Day as a celebration of Laidback Luke’s 300,000 Twitter followers.
Finally is a Dubstep tune from Asian Trash Boy, which is quite a name. This is the first track I’ve heard by him, but he did a sick job with will.i.am’s “This is Love”, making the song tolerable (I openly hate will.i.am) so I can absolutely say he’s on my radar. ATB (not to be confused with the Trance artist) hails from Toulouse, France and produces “INSANE SYNTH BASS. POWERFUL MELODY” according to his SoundCloud. This one is also a free release, as ATB exclaims “F*** them all” on his Facebook page. Turn this one up.
