Boy are we late with this album, but as I always say, “Better Late than NEVER!”. Wolfgang Gartner (AKA, Joey Youngman) dropped his bombshell of an album Weekend in America about a week ago. A HUGE production from a firm favourite of ours here at Electric Basement. 1) We’ll be posting two tracks from the album for our Tenants to preview, first of which will be, “The Way it Was”. A high Energy track with an extremely uplifting buildup, followed by ANOTHER buildup of epic proportions. Very Wolfgang Gartner-like. 2) Despite the major collaborations with [HIP-HOP] artists, Wolfgang Gartner’s massive sound is still the dominant driving force on this album, especially in his track titled, “The Champ”. Very fitting title, considering this Album (and song) may very well shoot the American producer to a comfortable #1 position on the Beatport [ELECTRO HOUSE] charts. This track gave off a very “Feed Me” like sound. Very enjoyable and definitely worth a listen (…or two) 3) Tiesto, you have done an amazing job showing the true colours of your versatility. It never ceases to amaze me how great of a producer this man is with his latest remix of Joker’s single, “Slaughter House”. Tiesto’s remix incorporates a bass kick with extremely addicting vocals, managing to bring this song to life with his signature sounds and vibes. 4) Say HELLO to my lil friend, DJ and Australian-based Producer Tommy Trash. The man gives, “Falling Out of Love” by EDX and Sarah McLeod a ride in his handy “Kangaroo Pouch”, slapping on some of that Australian dirt, and essentially revamping the Progressive original into a much Grittier, Electro-House beat. The track is a definite must have for anyone looking for a quick Pick-Me Up. 5) Dada Life pretty much devoured David Guetta’s single of ALL and ANY of it’s “Mainstream” vibe and shit out the glory that is their remix to, “Little Bad Girl” (Guerilla Fart #13). The Swedish duo is back to expand their already HUGE remix Discography with this killer edit of the commercialized yet catchy original. 6) Every now and then, us Landlords at Electric Basement find a new Listing and like to show it off to the world. It’s with great pleasure, that we’d love to introduce you to GooseFlesh and his single “Combo Fix”. This song wastes very little time with its Melodic Arpeggios and full force Electro Synths. This beat will have you hip thrusting in your chair TILL YOU DIE. Definite banger for all your [ELECTRO HOUSE] junk-heads. Enjoy the [ELECTRO HOUSE] post, and keep that [HOUSE] rocking!
(Sorry for the lack of posts over the Weekend. It won’t happen again next weekend Tenants!)
I don’t care what anyone else thinks or believes; but Tiesto’s change to a more Progressive and Electro sound was the best decision a man could make next to the guy who decided to freeze Milk to create Ice Cream. Fuck. Could go for some Ice Cream right about now 1) Tiesto’s latest single “Maximal Crazy” captures everything a hard-hitting Electro-House song needs; as quoted from Sander van Doorn, “it’s a dance floor destroyer, and one big pile of energy”. 2) Off of his new album Nothing But the Beat, “Lunar” featuring Afrojack shows David Guettta’s back in business with this driving house track. Warning. Don’t drive and listen to this song unless you can handle driving at speeds exceeding 200km. 3) Feed Me’s back with his latest single off of Mau5trap, “Cotts-Face” only reinforcing the fact that this guy is versatile as a producer as the Chinese are as versatile at creating knockoffs! 4) Highly underrated producer, Shermanology shows us how to pump up a party with his latest single, “Ring the Alarm”. Fresh track with a DIRTY bass line. 5) Finally, I bring to you the sounds of Nicky Romero & Apster, “Bootcamp”. Apster brings to this a melodic chord progression that compliments Nicky Romero’s DIRTY drop extremely well.
