The French dream team of Reepublic has come back strong with a new hit in 2013. Gregori Klosman, Tristan Garner, Antoine Clamaran,Sebastien Benett and Michael Canitrot have teamed up together on a booming new track that has caught my ears as a big tune to round out 2013 and start 2014 off on the right foot. “Pantheon” has a very powerful bassline, which compliments a acid/303 sounding lead on the top line. With big-room taking over, its nice to hear a song with a wide variety of sounds layered together. You can tell these 5 worked really hard on the sound of “Pantheon,” and that they did not throw the sound together to reach a deadline. This tune is definitely worth a download, so head over to Beatport, and grab “Pantheon” as a holiday gift for any dance music fan!

Amsterdam native Mell Tierra has made his arrival on Revealed Recordings with his brand-new three track EP. Each song has received a special debut through Hardwell On Air, and each song packs a punch. The tracks are called “Boomerang,” “Recipe,” and “Soldiers,” and I have to say, it is tough to label any of them as a favorite. They are all powerful club weapons, and have been hidden as ID tracks throughout Hardwell‘s sets of the summer. Check out this new EP from Mell Tierra below, and head over to Beatport to grab your copy! (P.S. – let us know your favorite track in the comments below!)

What happens when you take two rising Miami producers and lock them in the studio together? You get a track like “Funked Up”. Over the past few weeks, it seems as though Landis and Crespo have been doing pretty much everything together, from making tracks in the studio, to rocking the decks at EDC Orlando. We’re excited to hear the results of their studio time, through their second tandem release on Cr2 Records, following up “Mojo”. This new single is called “Funked Up,” and makes use of a hysterical, but useful, sample from the world-famous, “Cha-Cha Slide”.
This track has one of the most intricate melodies that I’ve heard in an electro track of late, but that just adds to the power this tune possesses. The melody leads straight into a wild build, that leads into the “Now it’s time to get funky” sample that most people can recognize easily. The drop that follows is incredible, made up of a razor sharp saw lead placed over a strong but not overpowering bassline. This track is easily one of the best releases Cr2 Records has put out this year, and really defines what electro house should sound like.
The tune definitely serves as a perfect holiday gift, and can be picked up on Beatport on December 17. Until then, enjoy this latest tune from Landis and Crespo!
Dim Mak Records has struck again, this time bringing in Justin Prime, the man ½ responsible for the hit “Cannonball,” together with fellow Dutchman Joey Dale for a big new collaboration, known as “POING!”. With big-room house being all the rage, this track fits into any trendsetter’s playlist, and we won’t be surprised to hear it being played worldwide in just a few days.
You can hear the influence that Mr. Cannonball, Justin Prime, has on the overall sound of the track. The melody does go in a different direction, and allows Justin and Joey to create a unique sound for themselves. The melody in this track is just as strong and powerful as the drop, which has proven to be a rarity in big-room. After a little freestyle percussion and a “JUMP!” sample, we find ourselves hurled head first into a banging big-room drop, consisting of the essential kick and pluck sequence.
This track drops on Dim Mak Records on December 10. Until then, enjoy!
