It's been a fertile week in ye ol' blogosphere with some absolutely huge releases, spearheaded by the anticipation of Justice's forthcoming single and it's sounding massive!
Also, I come from a fairly small city in the north of Cumbria called Carlisle, it's not a very exiting place and the people don't (usually) have webbed hands, despite what a few geordies and a guernseain might try to tell you. Now Radio 1's One Big Weekend doesn't usually appeal to me, teeny boppers going wild for Beiber and Gaga isn't usually my scene so i was fairly indifferent when I heard it was invading my hometown of Carlisle. That was until i saw the lineup on the In New Music We Trust stage...
Swedish House Mafia, The Strokes, Magnetic Man, Nero, Chase & Status and The Foo Fighters.
We're all still in a state of shock, a friend sums it up pretty well on facebook "Radio 1 have literally no idea... Carlisle will break them" It'll be an interesting weekend to say the least.
Nevertheless, here's some funky bangers to keep you dancin' over the easter break...
#1 Tomeo West & Yvan Emerick - Wake Up
Tomeo West is a crackin' young producer from Nantes churning out some really danceable bombs and this one ain't no different. He's got another release coming out soon and it sounds class, was gonna save this one for the next Soundcloud Sunday but it's too good to hold on to for long.
Amazin' Time (Original Mix) by Tomeo West
#2 Reder8 - Amazing (Promise Land Remix)
#3 Flo Rida - Who Dat Girl (Promise Land Remix)
#4 Promise Land - Wrong
I was a bit slow on the uptake of Promise Land and it was only through Arslan's Promo Mix that i've got into them. Massive hands-in-the-air house tunes that really get crowds going, deffo one to keep an eye on in the future.
#5 Harry 'Choo Choo' Romero & Eric Morillo - Pa Ra Ra (Shake)
Two dons of the house music scene doing what they do best. Led by a hypnotic synth-line that builds and builds to a bangin' second drop at 4:50, get on it.
#6 Dada Life - Fight Club Is Closed
The follow up single to 'White Noise / Red Meat' from bassline monsters Dada Life. Expect as usual to get pummelled by sub bass and saw waves! It's huge but a blatant pattern is forming in their productions, i'm not complaining though!
#7 Afrojack - Doing It Right
This legend needs no introduction, especially to the residents of edinburgh he destroyed at the WeOwn gig at Ocean Terminal in early march. The thing i love about Afrojack is that his tunes are always so controversial, weird sqeaky drops and over-powering bass kicks which in hindsight seem ahead of his generation. This one's no different. As with most of his tunes it takes a few listens to get into them but it's worth it eventually.
Once again in the next two months we're spoilt by the sheer talent passing through, so expect a mammoth post about that soon.
And i've got a few cheeky productions in the pipeline so keep 'em peeled for them
