Jimi Frew – Depth. If you haven’t heard about it, you soon will. One of the main reasons I got into dance music is because of the semester I spent in Australia, where one of the most commonly heard music genres is some form of Electro – whether you’re at a bar, a club, or hanging out in an Australian’s dorm room. Jimi Frew (formerly fRew) is an Australian, born and bred, and as a result has been influenced by that scene from a DJ and producer perspective. His newest track “Depth”, released June 3 on John Dahlback‘s Mutants records is an absolute smash. I apologize for not posting it sooner, but this is one to keep in your rotations, especially you DJs looking for some extra punch. In fact, when I first heard the track I thought it was by Dahlback himself, but “Depth” really shows you how capable Frew is of destroying speaker systems. The sound he has found, combined with the vocal sample of “Ground floor going down”, falls right into my wheelhouse of what I look for in an Electro-House song. This sound is similar to guys like Tommy Trash and John Dahlback and will be one I continue to seek out. For more Jimi Frew sounds, head over to his SoundCloud page.
BONUS material comes from Jimi Frew and fellow Australian Bass Kleph on their track “Gum”. Also released on June 3, it’s another Electro-House gem from Lazy Rich‘s Big Fish Recordings label. Check them out!
