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.

Crookers “I Just Can’t” out now on Dim Mak

crookers1Heavily supported by the likes of Jack Ü, Oliver Heldens, Martin Garrix, Pete Tong and Dim Mak’s own Steve Aoki, among others, Crookers “I Just Can’t” feat. Jeremih is poised to be one of the biggest dance music smashes of the summer. The playlist-friendly Radio Edit is available on iTunes in the Americas, while the more DJ-friendly Original Mix has been bundled with two exciting reworks from GTA and Hybrid Theory for an exclusive Beatport release, also in the Americas.

In support of the single, Crookers hit the road for a North American tour that included featured slots on Dim Mak’s Miami and SXSW events, plus stops in Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington DC. The tour wraps up this month with remaining dates in Salt Lake City, San Diego, New York City and Boston.  

Previously described by Pitchfork as “one of the more promising examples of an ongoing cross-pollination between the club and “the club,” Crookers remains one of the most prominent DJs working today. Achieving his first major success in 2008, Crookers’ remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N Nite” reached top 20 in 21 countries, top five in six different countries, and twice platinum in the United States. 2010 saw the release of Crookers’ debut album Tons of Friends, which featured an all-star lineup that included the likes of Miike Snow, Pitbull and Major Lazer. The 2011 follow up, Dr. Gonzo, proved to be another step forward for Phra, as he once again showcased his ability to produce catchy club beats without compromising his originality.
