The king of Electro-House and the king of, well, every other style of House came together to release the track “Stand Alone” which was released back in July. The track features a buzz-saw bass line and chilling vocals from Jareth. Although we’ve come to expect this kind of track from Lazy Rich, it’s great to see Chris Lake pumping out an aggressive tune like this as he’s been known to span the world of House by releasing Big Room and Tech-House/Disco House sounds in the past. Today Ultra Records released the official music video for the track which I found to be pretty entertaining and a great way to kick the weekend off. Check it for yourself – and don’t forget to enter our Chris Lake ticket contest for two passes to Bond Boston next Friday. ENTER HERE
I’ve been really high on the California duo Norin & Rad who have really started to make a name for themselves with hard-hitting Trance and Progressive-House tracks that have been hugely popular with guys like Above & Beyond, seeing heavy rotation on their Trance Around the World podcasts. We caught Norin & Rad’s set (real names Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember) at Electric Zoo and we were very impressed by what we heard (and saw). On Monday the duo released their new EP Five Finger Death Punch/DeVas and you NEED to hear it. “Five Finger Death Punch” goes real hard but also gives us an uplifting break that reminds us this is a Trance song. “DeVas” follows in similar fashion and the unique style of Trance this falls into really rubs me the right way. Support these guys and pick up the EP HERE.
