Despite being blurry-eyed from a late Diplo & Grandtheft show last night at Boston’s Ocean Club, I was excited to get my week crankin’ with new tracks by Tommy Trash and John Dahlback – two of my favorite producers in the Electro-House world. Any time Tommy Trash or John Dahlback release new songs I get excited because I know I’m going to hear something unique and something of the highest quality – both in production value and in the overall structure of each track.
“Monkey In Love” is Trash’s brand new banger (released on Steve Angello’s Size Records), a song with a highly anticipated release date after being part of live sets and his most recent podcast from May 30th. The drop of this one is so grimy and so unique that there’s no way this one doesn’t make it into your rotation and into your DJ sets. The break has, to me, a very Medieval feel, before dropping back into the filth one last time. Tommy Trash is truly a savant and unlike no other artist out there, I think you’ll agree after hearing “Monkey in Love”.
“Cobra” is John Dahlback’s brand new banger, released on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings. The fact that this tune was released on Wall comes as a bit of a surprise to me, given that Dahlback runs his own Mutant label and because this song has zero bleeps or bloops. I don’t know if I can do a good job of describing the sound of “Cobra”, but what I can tell you is that it remains unique in sound following suit with Dahlback’s other heavy bangers. If you thought the dirt and grime was readily available in Tommy Trash’s “Monkey In Love”, you’ll see it’s all over the place with Dahlback’s “Cobra”. Enjoy!
