Monday marked the release of two new singles from the masterminds behind last years platinum Anthem ‘Epic’. Lets start with Quintino. A Holland native who doesn’t release tracks very often, so when he does you can expect greatness. ‘Circuits’ is a collaboration with MOTI released by way of Afrojack’s label Wall Recordings. It is clear Quintino is the mastermind behind this track. The dark bassline and booming kicks can instantly be recognized, as the track builds into a Dutch drop. ‘Circuit’ is the style of track that defines the Wall Recordings imprint.

Dutch House fans rejoice!

Sandro Silva’s release comes by way of Bingo Players label Hysteria. ‘Core’ is Silva’s second solo release of the year and rides the trend of harder tracks designed for festival crowds and speakers. The chord progression is simple and common but eventually drops into heavy upbeat synths that develop into an original melody. 

When I posted Dada Life’s remix of ‘Prutataaa‘, I should have warned you that we would be hearing from electro heavy weight Angger Dimas as well. Dimas takes the summer dutch Anthem to a whole new level. Leaving the efforts of Dada Life far behind.

This remix is so powerful it will blow your mind right in front of your face! Loudness buttons on!

Bonus Anthem: Angger Dimas teams up with Dim Mak boss Steve Aoki, in a track dedicated to the man who will forever change the way you listen to music. Rest in peace Steve Jobs.

A few of these you’ll definitely recognize, but a couple of them flew somewhat under the radar.  We’ll admit it, we have a little bias towards the ‘The Way We See The World’ video due to our cameo, but it’s still an epic short nonetheless.  Overall it seems artists have really stepped up their video production budgets this past year.

Here is another loud track for all you Dada and Afrojack fans. I only listened to it once, and to be honest Dada Life ruined it. They weakened  the drop and nullified the tracks greatest element of surprise. Its no longer the party starter it used to be, but I’m sure it will get plenty of air time. Its the weekend, so do the DADA!

Exactly one year after the first ‘Lost & Found’ EP was released, Afrojack puts out a second EP on Wall Recordings with 6 ‘new’ tracks.  Described in the release as a ‘blend of typical Afrojack tracks,’ this is really nothing special.  Afrojack has had a huge 2011, but I’m not sure this adds anything…

The hype for Afrojack continues to grow at a pace few artists can keep up with. Afrojack’s latest release is ‘Lionheart’. A totally original sound that will have any crowd going absolute bonkers. Not always the biggest fan of Dirty Dutch but this Anthem can’t be hated. As usual Afrojack brings the heat!
