Huzzah! Here’s the weekly DMP for you, just in time to download really quickly then head out to DJ a party. For me the party is with the homeless people in the park by my apartment. Those bros are chillers fsho. You’ve probably noticed a slew of other dance tracks today (just scroll down), but here’s a collection of some of the best recent stuff to hit the webz. Huzzah!
A double dose of Disclosure for you right here, with “Carnival”, from a free EP that can be downloaded from their Facebook page, and a remix from Melé of their most recent release “Tenderly”. Disclosure are fast rising of the UK Bass scene, as is Melé – an incredible DJ and producer who at only 19, is set to be absolutely massive. You heard it here first!
Disclosure – “Carnival”
Disclosure – “Tenderly (Melé Remix)
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED, for short) has been turning heads since his incredible “Garden.” This is a 192kbps version of his next track, “Tapes and Money.” On first listen, it’s not as dynamic as his first few tracks but still has that thoughtful, interesting quality to it that guarantees it’s going to be played over and over again in the coming weeks.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – “Tapes & Money”
You guys love Lana right? And you love bass-heavy bangers? Well how about the two together then? If you fancy fist pumping like a champ this weekend, or raving with some of your bro’s, then this one is for you. No lonnngg tinggg.
Lana Del Rey -“Diet Mountian Dew (Tommy Noble Remix)”
This track isn’t strictly dance music, it’s more like hip-pop over some big-room basslines, and it’s not at all new, having been UK number 1 last year, but for a lot of you it will be the first taste of Example, who is hoping to take his club influenced sound to an American audience. While he is riding the wave of mainstream dance music popularity, Example is no bandwagon jumper, having been grinding for years, and moving from underground rapper on Mike Skinner of The Streets’ label to having had UK number 1 singles and playing festival main stages. Check out the lead single from Example’s last album below, now being given away free.
Example – “Changed The Way You Kiss Me”
Another one of those Mad Decent sub-label The Jefrees releases, from a Swedenn based producer called Joelito. With horns, horns and more horns, this is the kind of music I imagine Mexican banditos would have danced to in the Wild West, had they had laptops and Fruity Loops rather than guitars.
Joelito – “Sickhead”
Gotye’s “Someboy I Used To Know” is blowing up right now, for good reason. This is the first somewhat audacious attempt to rework it into a cut and dry dance track. Lazrtag does a good job of preserving that wrenching chorus, adds some anthemic synth stabs and boom – you’ve got yourself a banger. Can’t say I’m in love with this, just because the original is so good, but you can’t win them all and this is undeniably fun.
Gotye – “Somebody I Used To Know (LAZRtag Bootleg)”
Another electro hard-hitter, this time from Chuckie. To be completely honest I only really know Chuckie from remixes of his tracks by names like Dada Life and Dillon Francis, but I keep an eye out for new stuff, it’s always reliably good party tracks, this one included.
Chuckie – “Together”
Zeds Dead is rising popularity, he’s got an association with the brostep movement but this track is pretty restrained and has some cool, swirly synthwork in there. He remixed the Danger Remix of the original, creating the rare reremix.
Sebastian Tellier – “Divine Danger (Zeds Dead ReRemix)
