GTA are my favorite party rocking DJs. I use the term "party rocking" in the sense that there are a select few EDM-centered artists whose music has always crossed over seamlessly to a largely dance music-unaware college party crowd (and being that I live in the city that is home to the #2, formerly #1, party school in the US, I've had my fair share of research), and GTA remain atop that shortlist, being able to make insanely hype but immensely nuanced and enjoyable productions that always intelligently defy genre. Their just-because giveaway, "Cake," is a three-minute-and-thirty-second trip through big-room electro, various club influences, and culminating in trapped-out hip-hop for that smooth finish. It's a nice little morsel ahead of the first installment of their Good Times Ahead party series with Craze and Sluggers, as well as their forthcoming tour dates with both Skrillex and the OG HDYBYZ, Flosstradamus. Go cop the download and see if the GTA boys will be in a town near you this fall or winter!
