This is clubbing in the sunshine. This is the Summer Parade, the Beach Club, the happy hours, the bikini-clad dancers, the smiling faces, sizzling feeling of MDMA in the wee hours of the morning. This is club music. Continue reading Carol Fernandez, “You Will Never Know”: Let’s celebrate the classic club groove!
Funky! That’s what this track is. In a very clubby way.
It is not without risk to use a single vocal sample and let that run through the entire track non-stop. But here it totally works.
I get Daft Punk vibes from this little gem. Continue reading Lazer Kitten, “Don’t Look Back”: Look mom, a funky kitten!
This track is hilarious. The lyrics, “inspired” by Eminem’s “Without Me”, instantly defines the bar for this track. Add to that some classic 303 bass acid lead (hence the title) on top of a solid club beat and you got something that just works. Continue reading Anna Lunoe, “303”: If you wanna get a little tipsy…
I dare say there is not a single dance floor on this planet, regardless of continent, age, colour or sexual orientation, that would not dance to this. That would not totally TAKE OFF to it. That floor does simply not exist. And I don’t care how hipster the crowd is. Or how underground. Or how credible the VIP room feels they are. They will fucking go mental. Continue reading Daniel Levak, “So Deep”: No, it’s not. But dat bass!
There’s one thing that I’ve always been weak for: Classical samples in club music. Yeah yeah, the music police will say it’s cheesy as fuck, but come on. There’s just nothing BIGGER than a fully fledged classical experience, being it a full orchestra or a large, full chorus. Add hard hitting electronica to that, and you got dynamite. Continue reading Vowed, “Close Your Eyes”: Close your eyes and travel in time
This is fun fodder for the floor. It has that groovy, tight, happy club vibe that many will recognise from around the turn of the century. But is it “retro”? Don’t be too sure! Because, for me it seems this sound is on the way back to the floors again, after a period dominated by a harder and more aggressive type tech house.
The bounce is back! Continue reading Christos Papadogias, “Sunday”: The bounce is back!
Here’s a track so satisfyingly unpretentious, so charmingly shallow, a track that only sets out to move our asses. A basic progression is done throughout the track, but in essence it stays the same.
The audio image is not overloaded with all sorts of details, it’s the beat track, a bass line, and spice on top. Classic club track formula. Continue reading M3DIUM – “Saturn Funk”: When the shit hits the funk
Imagine the coolest amusement park you can come up with. Here’s that park, shaped as a piece of music. Continue reading Spintelligence, “Vegas Drone”: My Amusement Park
A haunted, plagued voice repeating the word… “Love”(!). So much can be interpret into that and I don’t know WTF is going on here but I do know that I simply find it irresistible! Continue reading KRY4 – “Love”: A Cypriot Affair
