We've got a healthy dose of new electronic music to prescribe you, namely beats of the electro and progressive house variety. Jordy Dazz, twoloud and duo Domeno and Mikey Salerno bring in the big room guns this week, while Michael Woods and Kaaze bring us some vocal-progressive goodness. W&W's remix will keep you in the World Cup spirit. Let's go!
1. "We Will Recover" Kaaze & Michael Feiner, Musical Freedom
Kaaze is having a big month. He collaborated with Tiësto on his new album for the track "Rocky" and now has this stimulating release on Tiësto's label. The triumphant vocals seem 70's style and set up the progressive driving drop nicely. Out now.
2. "Science" Domeno and Mikey Salerno, Revealed Recordings
Just when I thought big room's drops had gotten so big there was no more room to get bigger, I heard this track. How hard this beat drops defies science. I'm guessing that's what inspired the name. Yeah, science! Out now.
3. "In Your Arms" Michael Woods ft. Lauren Dyson, Spinnin' Records
I was at Pacha's No Pants Party in NYC interviewing Woods the night he dropped this track. What a night. Beautiful melodic build starting with a subtle acoustic guitar riff and building to an orchestral drop. Dyson's voice is beautiful. Out July 7th.
4. "Eparrei" (W&W Remix) Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs Diplo & Fatboy Slim, Smash The House
This is being hailed the EDM anthem of the 2014 World Cup. W&W brings the heat with a a remix of this massive moombathon-influenced collaboration. Out now.
5. "Steel Drum" D.O.D, Mixmash Records
D.O.D hits back hard with an insane buildup, catchy melody and a foot-rocking percussive beat. Are you ready for the steel drum drop?! Out June 30th.
6. "Raise The Roof" Funkin Matt, Ones To Watch
I've been wondering when this track was getting released. An interesting intro with isolated bass drops and electro synths that set the melody for the rest of the track. Out June 19th.
7. "Vortex" Jordy Dazz & Jimi Frew, Revealed Recordings
I've had my eye on Jordy Dazz for awhile. Teaming up with new name Jimi Frew, we've got a massive room track on our hands. I like the high-pitched but subtle pulses right before the buildup kicks into high gear. Out June 23rd.
8. "I'm Alive" twoloud, Smash The House
This is room crusher might be the next "Tsunami." Distorted and pitch bent vocals hang over the buildup before unleashing a military march-sounding beat. Out June 23rd.
9. "Unstoppable" (Blinders Remix) R3hab ft. Eva Simons
Chosen to feature on Pepsi’s "Beats Of The Beautiful Game" compilation, this remix shows Blinders' staying power. I really like the vocal robotic distortions and the sweeping drum rolls at the end of the beat lines. Out soon.
10. "Real Life" TST & MOGUAI & Amba Shepherd, Musical Freedom
For the Tiësto fans freaking out about his new album not being EDM enough, here's a brand new track from his big room side project TST. This is a bit less electro than his previous TST tracks, but the melodies are enchanting, along with Shepherd's vocals. Out July 14th.
