House: Swedish House Mafia, Zedd, and Udachi

26 Jul

I don’t generally like Swedish House Mafia, they tend to produce pretty uninspired cheesy house music, kind of like David Guetta without the collaborations, but the good thing about them is that their enormous popularity gets them the best remix troupe in the game ever time.  Zedd‘s remix of Save the World is fantastic (the original was garbage, by the way).  It’s got a pretty long buildup, so hang in there, but it’s totally worth the wait once it drops.

Zedd – Dovregubben

 

Also, Udachi needs to get more popular.  He does an amazing live set, and consistently produces really original tracks.  He packed the tent at Camp Bisco this year, which was nice to see after seeing him in Northampton with only about ten other people.

Electro House: Trumpdisco again, and more

25 Jul

Trumpdisco just released their first self-titled EP, and it’s fantastic, if you like their brand of bass-heavy crazy electro.  The whole thing is worth picking up, which is a little rare – usually even great EPs have a lemon or two.  The first four are pretty standard quality electro tracks, but the best one by far is the last one.  Think James Brown, if all he had access to were some really heavily distorted synthesizers.

Trumpdisco: 1971

Trumpdisco: Mixtape for Marine Parade

NT89 does slightly heavier-than-average tech house, the sort of stuff that will make people go wild at either an electro show or a club.  This John Roman remix, especially, really gets you moving.

John Roman – Sala (NT89 Remix)

Nom de Strip is in a similar vein.  Wolfgang Gartner (who, by the way, I was totally not expecting to be balding), dropped U-turn in his insane set, in the penultimate spot at late-night Camp Bisco, and it got stuck in my head for about 18 hours afterwards.
