The Cut: More meat, Less Fat

The Cut: More meat, Less Fat
The Cut: More meat, Less Fat

 

There are many tracks out there that are hidden by the fat of less delicious tracks. As a part-time butcher of music discovery(and meat in real life), I will cut out the fat and show you the freshest cuts of meat (tracks) in this new segment we call “The Cut”. We will feature all kinds of cuts ranging from Bass, House, and downtempo vibes. 

 

Steve Aoki collaborates with heavyweights DVBBS and 2Chainz on a massive festival ready track. Hard hitting Basslines and vocals from 2Chainz gives this track that extra agressiveness we all love in EDM.

 

Dirty Audio links with Jupe to give us this Trap tune with elements of Dubstep synths. Definitely a pump you up track.

 

Tuxedo is one of those disco vibe duo’s that features Mayer Hawthorne. This remix gives you those classic House vibes and is a must in any collection. Add this to your spotify playlist.

 

This track has elements of house music along with club rhythms and chopped vocal samples that make this song captivating on the dancefloor.

 

Damn, can Crookers do no wrong? This Crookers remix is the prime rib of meats right now. Techno and House vibes that even feature Phra’s chopped vocals.

DVBBS & Borgeous feat. Tinie Tempah ‘Tsunami’ (official video)

Tsunami 042013 has seen 3 No.1 singles for Ministry of Sound, with hits coming from Bingo Players, Duke Dumont and Storm Queen. With 2014 in its sights, the world’s most successful dance label is gearing up for its next crossover hit with DVBBS & Borgeous’s ‘Tsunami (Jump)’, with a new vocal from Brit superstar, Tinie Tempah, following his previous featured hits with Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris. The epic performance video was directed by Fred Rowson, who commented: “From the moment I heard this track with Tinie’s vocal, I knew that the video would have to be visceral, distinctive, and have real swagger. I wanted it to be iconic, with an industrial, almost gothic aesthetic that we’ve created through the colour scheme and the physical installation that we built. The choreography is central to the way the video develops, and I took Rick Guest’s Royal Ballet photography as a reference point for how we’d portray this. We’ve edited the performances so they build in intensity to really capture the tone of the music”. The instrumental of ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ has already hit No.1 across Europe and on Beatport, clocked up 60 million collective YouTube views, over 800,000 Soundcloud plays, and received repeat UK radio support from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe (who has just premiered the vocal version on Radio 1), Pete Tong, Diplo, Danny Howard, Greg James, Diplo and Annie Nightingale, plus spins from Mistajam at 1Xtra. To date, the track has spent 14 weeks in the Shazam Top 200 chart, peaking at No.13 in the Top 20 pre release chart. DVBBS are Canadian brothers, Alex and Chris. The duo’s early singles ‘Initio’ and ‘DRVGS’, have taken the global EDM community by storm, and with shows alongside Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Rusko, Eric Prydz, Dada Life, Borgore and Steve Aoki, they’re rapidly becoming one of North America’s hottest live DJ tickets. LA’s Borgeous is another producer riding the crest of EDM’s next wave. His original productions ‘From Cali WIth Love’, ‘GANGSTEROUS’, ‘Rags To Riches’ and ‘Aggro’, alongside remixes of Rihanna’s ‘Pour It Up’ (with The Cataracs) and his reworking of Ciara’s ‘Goodies’, have brought him much acclaim in 2013. The inimitable Tinie Tempah has just dropped his second album, ‘Demonstration’, featuring collaborations with Diplo, Pharrell, Zane Lowe, Paloma Faith, Labrinth, Naughty Boy, Dizzee Rascal, 2 Chainz, Emeli Sandé, Ellie Goulding and the Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands. Following the success of Showtek’s ‘Booyah’ and Martin Garrix’ recent No.1, ‘Animals’, ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ is the next harder-edged EDM anthem to cut through in an ever-shifting dance music landscape.
