It’s been a little bit since we heard anything from Estonian sensation Mord Fustang. His last release came back in March with the four-song EP Welcome to the Future and boy was it a doozy. Since that time he’s played major festivals like Ultra and Electric Zoo, where at the latter he played one of the top three sets all weekend (in my opinion of course). One of the things I really liked about Mord’s Zoo set was how diverse it was. Switching up styles and BPMs as well as including many of his own releases that I always find myself reaching back for. Today’s release of “Champloo” shows us a prime example of Mord Fustang’s diversity: a 100bpm Glitch-Hop track that reminds me, and the buzz around the internet, of KOAN Sound. I’ll say that I typically like Mord’s funky Electro-House at the 128bpm range, but I have to admit “Champloo” has some real BOUNCE. Check it out for yourself.
The other track I want to share with you today is by 26-year-old Swedish producer John Dahlback. I’ve been really into his other recent song “Zeus” and it’s even killed in a few of my live sets. “Zeus”, however, is more of an Electro-House song. On the flip side, today’s “Sing That” is a really groovy feel-good House track that has a throw-back feel to it like something that would have surfaced in the 90s. With a driving four-to-the-floor beat, deep bass line, and sexy chopped up vocals, I can already see myself losing it if I ever hear it in a live DJ set. The drums in this one is really what gives it that throw-back feel for me and I must say I am a fan. I can see guys like Carl Cox and Mark Knight playing “Sing That” (yes, it was also released on Knight’s Toolroom Records) and perhaps this gem was a big hit in Ibiza this past Summer – but I wouldn’t know. See how you feel about this kids!
