Bonfire is my favorite track of the EP Death Valley by Knife Party. The track has some reggae influences, just like there other hit Fire Hive, a trend that seems to be populair at the moment, as you can also hear in Skrillex ft. Damian Marley – Make it bun dem for example.
All tracks in the EP are different and worth checking out. Rage Valley and Sleaze are two electro-house tracks, and Centipede a dirty dubstep track.
What will be the summerhit this year? It’s always hard to predict a summerhit, but i’ll give it a try. When there are some new contenders, i will make another post with those tracks. Last year the biggest summerhits here in Holland were Sak Noël – Loca People, Lucenzo – Vem dancar kuduro, Avicii – Levels, LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem, and Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo ft. Afrojack & Nayer – Give me everything.
Hardwell’s hit Spaceman was already a big succes, but with the vocals of Mitch Crown it will probably only get bigger. With his vocals added, the track is more radio friendly, and you won’t hear this tracks only on festivals and in clubs, but also a lot on the radio i guess.
The clip is also out now, and shows a mix of a animated spaceman, and live footage from various festivals Hardwell played on:
There are also 3 “outer space remixes” released, my favorite is the Headhunterz remix:
Rage is the new track by Ralvero which is released on Hysteria, the label of the Bingo Players and is already supported by some of the biggest names in the scene such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Sander van Doorn, Swanky Tunes and David Guetta! It’s a typical (dirty) Dutch house track, with fat synths and a mad drop.
THE progressive track of the moment is Nothing inside by Sander van Doorn & Mayaeni. The track is currently on rank one on beatport and deserves it. The combination of the vocals and the riff will get you goosebumps, and it’s another great track for the upcoming summer.
Sander van Doorn was #16 on the DJ Mag top 100 last year, and is known by tracks such as Koko, Riff, Drink to get drunk, and Grasshopper. Mayaeni delivers the vocals, and the track is written by Justin Parker who also wrote the worldwide hit Video games, by Lana Del Rey.
Dubstep producer Gemini’s new track Fire Inside which was released on april 2 on Inspected Records. The track is more electro-house with dubstep elements, then real dubstep, so i posted the track in Dubstep and House. The track is carried by the thick bassline, and the vocals by Greta Svabo Bech are a good addition to the rest of the production.
