Grinding with bass, potentially glass-shattering-bass, this track on Hysteria “Good Meet Evil, Evil Meet Good” by Anybody has an overload of potential to destroy festivals and clubs around the world. Anybody has gained major support from Dada Life. The Bingo Players have been playing this out track out lately, as it is their latest release on their label, Hysteria.
Knowing The Bingo Players style of releases (based on consistent history), this track has what most other tracks on Hysteria typically have- hard massive bass, crazy dutch infused bubbles/ dutch sounds, and a feel-good melodic break down. It released yesterday, Febraury 17th, 2014. Let us know what you think!
The remix package of Gareth Emery’s newest hit, “U”, is being rolled out and has not disappointed in the slightest. Yesterday via Gareth’s soundcloud, he released the first big room remix done by none other then W&W. The dutch duo took the original track to another level by throwing down a massive electro house beat over the original progressive trance track.
Well today Gareth Emery has released the second remix to “U” done by the Irishmen, Bryan Kearney. Fresh off his massive set at A State of Trance 650, Bryan Kearney is back to show the world how good of a producer he truly is. This remix takes the original ideas of Gareth Emery and adds the true meaning of trance back onto the track.
The uplifting trance beat is flawless while still maintaing the ideas behind of the original song. The combination of Bryan Kearney’s beats and the incredible vocals of Bo Bruce, combine for one great track. Definitely check this track out below and let us know what you think!
2014 will be Deorro’s biggest year to date. He has prepped tons of tracks, all in his Melbourne/ Dutch/ Pandafunk sound. It’s amazing how distinct his productions are from one another while all staying within the same genre. From remixes to originals to collaborations, Deorro’s identity (as far as sound) is easily distinguishable from the other producers that he collars with his identity in all of his collaborations.
He recently released an original track “Five Hours” on Avicii’s label LEV7LS. Deorro also dropped another ID in his back to back Beatport set with Borgore. He also has collabs with the following in the respect order of the tracks below: Steve Aoki, Steve Aoki and Diplo, and R3hab. The collaboration with Steve Aoki and Diplo is most likely called “Let’s Get Freaky”. When R3hab or Deorro drop their ID live, they tell the crowd take out their phones and flash their light in the air. This tactic builds the hype, making the drop much more climatic He also has an official remix for Cazzette coming out soon.
We wanted the unitedbydance community to be aware of such amazing and flawless productions by one of the most exciting producers in the Dutch/ Melbourne genre. We hope you’re all prepared for what has yet to come. Give us feedback on what you think!
R3hab relentlessly worked his way to be in the position that he’s in. R3hab’s original signature production sound we were all familiar with was filled with ‘bleeping’ dutch sounds. There was much controversy over whether or not he could step outside of his safe zone, whether or not he could break his sound barrier.
If you follow EDM religiously, you’d know how diverse his production style has become. From melodic progressive house, to trap, to massive hard electro house, he has made a major impact on the EDM scene already and will continue to do so.
This time, he took the typical electro sound and turned it into something funky, bouncy electro and named it “Android”. Once the clock hits the 42 second mark, he breaks the song down in a melodic anthem sounding synth. The grinding, gassy synth of the drop is similar to MAKJ’s remix to “Not Taking This No More” by Nervo and Ivan Gough. I hope you guys like the brand spanking new preview. Help build the hype. It’ll be released on Dim Mak on February 25th so prepare yourselves!
It was a little over a year ago that the LA based producer, TJR, released his massive hit “Ode To Oi” to the world. What this track did was bring a completely different style and sound into the mainstream EDM market in the United States. The infectious Melbourne bounce style has since skyrocketed and put TJR back on the map.
Well with 2014 in full swing, it is time for the first unofficial announcement for TJR’s upcoming single featuring Good Charlotte’s own Benji Madden. This monster collaboration uses the strengths of both producer and vocalist to create one amazing track. TJR throws down a massive Melbourne Bounce beat with Benji Madden providing his unique pop-punk vocals over the track.
This track is beyond infectious and is being considered TJR’s next big hit! Definitely check out this track below and let us know what you think!
Ivan Gough and Jebu are a couple of Australians who are no strangers to each other as we all know. They’ve collab’ed before a few times, most notably their monster bass-killing track “Kukatu”. This was Steve Angello’s secret weapon for quite a while until he released it.
Steve Angello and Size Records are preparing tons of new material that will be coming out soon enough, including originals, hidden gems, and crazy collaborations. A notable Steve Angello collab is with the #6 DJ’s in the world, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike.
This new track, “Noxu” is a drop filled with crazy energetic sounds. It drops once, leads to a bridge, and drops again with more sounds to fill the air. It’s a big-room sounding monster. There are signature Dannic sounds present; this song reminds me of “Blueprint” by Dannic, which is a huge track. “Noxu” is a ticking bomb and it’s set to release on February 24th so prepare for the explosion. It’ll be out on Size Records and Neon Records
P.S. – We gave you guys the official preview along with a live rip of the track. You can get an idea of the quality and depth of the production via the soundcloud link, while you can hear a more complete version of the track in lower quality on YouTube . Let us know what you think!
Ryan Landis is as diverse as you can get when it comes to producers now-a-days. Coming fresh off of a remix with Robby Rivera of “Young Folks”, this American has a lot of potential. We love our home-bred producers here in the United States and take pride in them; Landis is one of the up comers with a lot of hope. He’s gained support from his huge collab with Corporate Slackers, “Smash” by Laidback Luke, MAKJ, Hardwell, etc.
“Dive” is an original track by Hot Mouth vs Nezzo feat Hope on the vocal aspect. Landis gives the track a bouncy feel by sticking to some of the original’s synths and chords. The electro synths are short and quick; so it fills the air with tons of energy. It will explode any atmosphere like a bottled up rocket. Bump this loudly and enjoy the bouncy electro-ness. Check out the other remix as well; it’s a crazy hard electro banger. They’re both out on Armada Music, available on Beatport so grab a copy today.
