Borgeous has dabbled in a lot of different genre’s of his production career so far, but future house is something new for him. Shaun Frank has made some house music before, but nothing quite like this.
“This Could Be Love” has some of the catchiest vocals of any song I’ve heard this year and the drop is just as groovy. This is quite possibly one of my favorite songs released in 2014, despite it being released so late in the year. The song isn’t overwhelming, in fact it’s very minimal, but that minimal aspect makes it so much bigger.
Take a listen to Borgeous & Shaun Frank‘s track “This Could Be Love” featuring Delaney Jane. The song is out now on Spinnin Records, so make sure you get a copy on iTunes. Enjoy!
Another big tune is dropping in from the land down under, as Australian SCNDL has struck again with another smash. He brings his talents back to Hussle Recordings with “Drop It,” a Melbourne bounce track with its sights set on blowing your speakers. This solo track follows right on the heals of a very successful remix for TJR & VINAI‘s “Bounce Generation,” and also follows a very similar production formula. SCNDL goes straight into the bouncy madness after the intro, combining the perfect bassline with the definition of a high-octane topline. Right when you thought that this track could not get better for the peak-time DJ, SCNDL throws in a huge twist. After the first drop comes a trap breakdown that introduces a new take on the melody, and a massive 808 bassline. “Drop It” is set for big-time success, and is available now. Grab it from the Beatport link below, and enjoy!

With the massive success of “Jumper” serving as a tough task to follow, the Dutch super team of Hardwell and W&W has reunited in the studio to create the third single to be released off of the upcoming Hardwell album “United We Are”. The tune has been absolutely killing the scene as an instrumental track, and aims to tear up more dance floors with the vocal assistance of American rapper Fatman Scoop. The drop made its first appearance in a Hardwell mashup from Tomorrowland 2013, and made its debut as a vocal track at the 2014 edition of the festival. The track goes by “Don’t Stop The Madness” now, and is set for a December 22 release on Revealed Recordings.
“Don’t Stop The Madness” starts off with a familiar sound in the breakdown, as the melody synth from “Thunder” makes another appearance. The melody then takes prominence for a few seconds, before Fatman Scoop makes his presence known. The melody grows into a louder and more defined sound, with the original synth layered with many more. The first 3 notes of the melody are then looped together as the buildup begins, and this sound is soon joined by a combination of percussion and more vocals. The drop brings a clash of big-room and electro house, as a giant bass kick and a bleepy top-line that has since become signature in the productions of both Hardwell and W&W.
Grab “Don’t Stop The Madness” when it drops on December 22. Also, be sure to grab the Hardwell album on January 23. Enjoy!
If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past few weeks you’ve probably heard pretty much everyone playing OT Genasis’s hit track “Coco”. It seems like the song has taken over Vine and there’s probably thousands of videos, tweets, and posts already about the tune. It’s a solid song, but to be honest it doesn’t really make me want to dance, so I started to look for some remixes of the track and by far the best one I’ve come across is the Jauz bootleg. It retains a lot of the original elements of the track and the main chorus which is what we everyone likes to sing at parties, clubs, wherever really, but then he drops into a nice deep house section that’s sure to have everyone on the dance floor. It’s the best of both worlds here and that bass line is just too good. Jauz has really been putting out some good stuff and we’ve got some high hopes for him in 2015, but for now enjoy this free bootleg and feel free to sing along because we know you’ve memorized every word to “Coco” already. Admit it, it’s catchy.
At the beginning of 2014 most people probably had no idea who Lookas was, but now the name is one of the most well recognized in the trap scene thanks to releases like “Genesis”, “Loko”, a collab with Jayden Parx called “Chaos, and epic remixes of “Selfie”, “Rocket”, and “Beware of the Boys”. The steady stream of hits helped the relatively unknown producer rise to star status in just a few short months and in honor of hitting 100,000 fans on Facebook, the perfect way to top off an excellent year, Lookas has released a filthy 40 minute mix filled with all the trappy goodness you can handle.
They are two big talents from the Netherlands, ready to take the next step on the ladder towards international fame. I’m talking about Gianni Marino & Dirrty Berry. Marino has released several tracks on Vicious Recordings and just finished a bootleg together with American heroes Major Lazer. Dirrty Berry has been responsible for some heavy, much supported bootlegs and created his own unique style. He didn’t release an official track just yet, but it shouldn’t be long before he reaches this achievement. Together, Gianni Marino & Dirrty Berry come with a banging bootleg of Celine Dion‘s classic ‘My Heart Will Go On’. Grab this big melodic banger for free below and get ready to party hard!
Over the past two months, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike‘s track with Wolfpack, “Ocarina,” has not exactly been the “go-to” track for DJs. The track did receive an incredible amount support after it’s Tomorrowland 2012 debut, and has received a bit of new life thanks to Jake Sgarlato. The American has taken on the track with one of the more infectious melodies that The industry has ever come across, But takes it in a completely different direction from the original mix. He has ditched the vocals that created the track “Find Tomorrow,” and works strictly with the instrumental. He also adds his own twist to the melody, and infuses more energy into the breakdown. After a suspenseful buildup, an absolutely massive drop awaits. It is an absolute killer combination of Melbourne house bass and big room top line synths, and makes a sound that the four Belgian artists would be proud of. Grab Jake Sgarlato‘s remix below as a free download, and enjoy!
As the release date for Hardwell‘s debut album grows closer, the hype behind the tracks it will contain has only grown larger. Today, fans got their first taste of what “United We Are” will feature as the tracklist to the album was posted. Many suspicions were confirmed, and new intrigue was generated as the 14 tracks were named. The most notable discovery is the amount of collaborations on the album, since six of the 14 tracks are co-produced. These new collaborations were created alongside some huge names like Tiësto, Funkerman, W&W, Headhunterz, and DallasK. Also, Hardwell successfully destroyed the speculation over the track that has opened his sets for the past year, noting the track is titled “Eclipse” and not “Titan”. Lastly, there are some awesome vocalists who will be featured on the album. Fatman Scoop, Bright Lights, Jason Derulo, and more have brought their talents to “United We Are”. A few of these tracks have made appearances in Hardwell‘s recent sets, and two have been released as singles. Check out “Arcadia” and “Young Again” below, and be on the lookout for “Don’t Stop The Madness” in tomorrow’s episode of Hardwell On Air.
For producers, there is very little that is more satisfying than finishing a track, and sending it out for feedback. The thoughts of others can give a track that last tweak it needs, or make a connection between producers. Unfortunately, this whole process went horribly wrong for Jeremus, an American producer who has become a victim of intellectual property theft. This theft was discovered on August 1, 2014, and brought to our attention just this week, thanks to Jeremus and The FPIA. The track was originally released through Warped Bridge Records named “Boomerang,” but resurfaced on Raveup Records credited to KheDa as “Felix”. It would appear as though KheDa got his hands on the track through a promo sent out back in 2012, before the track was even signed. The sad part in all of this is the potential support that Jeremus has lost as a result of this ridiculous move. The track actually was supported by W&W back in late 2012 on episode 135 of their Mainstage Music Podcast.
For obvious reasons, this is incredibly disappointing news. Artists who spend their time putting everything they have into their music should receive the credit and praise they deserve for the tracks they create. The worst part is the lack of justice. Because of international copyright laws, it has become practically impossible for Jeremus to win a lawsuit over the track. There is very little else to do, but spread the word. As badly as one wants to become successful in the industry, take your time, produce your own music, and become proud of yourself.
It’s safe to say that Row Rocka has established a name for himself in the dance music community. Now, that’s impressive, because he is only 17 years old, and has already released some of the hottest big-room tracks. His latest track is titled “Kingwood,” and marks his first solo release on Revealed Recordings. It became a no-brainer for the label to resign him, since “Gate 9″ was a highly-demanded track throughout the 2014 festival season. “Kingwood” follows a similar formula, but comes through with a unique result. The young Dutchman highlights another successful track with a punchy melody, and a drop that is bound to blow out speakers all over the globe. The thing is: Row Rocka knows how to make a killer big-room track that does not fit the monotonous, triplet-filled norm. Don’t just take our word for it, though, since Dyro, W&W, and David Guetta have all dropped this track in recent sets. Grab “Kingwood” from Beatport using the link below. Enjoy!
