Dyro is louder then ever right now and returns to Revealed Recordings for his second major release of the year. ‘Raid’ is a collaboration with fellow Dutchman Rene Kuppens and reached the number four spot on the Miami Buzz Chart. The tracks light synths formulate a pulsating beat that lead into a massive drop. Followed by a deep bassline and low end wobbles. This track will do wonders to a festival crowd!

Heavy Electro House Beat.

Avesta hit the scene hard with ‘Dutchano’ and then answered  with ‘Arena’. A track with enough prestige to land a spot on Tiesto’s Club Life Volume Two : Miami. Yesterday, Avesta continued his roll through 2012 with the release of ‘Rollin’ on Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records. ‘Rollin’ is dynamic track loaded with heavy progressive chords and electro synths and LBL influence.

A special release for all of Hardwell’s internet friends came today! After reaching 200,000 likes on Facebook, Hardwell has given away his edit/remix of Knife Party’s ‘Internet Friends’. The Hardwell propaganda gets a little annoying, and if you don’t like the hard pounding original then this is the track for you.

Hardwell’s new track ‘Kontiki’ has been lingering in set lists since the fall and made its Beatport premier  on Monday. The original is not all that, however the remix by Dutch peer Dyro is a track you don’t want to ignore. Already reaching the tenth spot on Beatport’s Electro House chart, Dyro’s remix starts with the same chord progression and then the track flips, when the dominating Electro build and drop takeover. Dyro’s remix explodes with energy. Hits harder, and deeper and has replaced the original in Hardwell’s sets since Ultra. Remixes like this one, make it apparent that there is a new wave of Dutch talent still waiting to explode upon the industry.

Hardwell drops the Dyro remix at Ultra.

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. 

The good news; Dada Life finally released one of their most anticipated and demanded tracks ever. The bad news; they were out-done twice by two remixes. The track first appeared at EDC in 2010 and since then it has been making crowds go bananas. This time the Swedish fuzz masters jumped on the auto-tune bandwagon, with a vocal line that has stirred a frenzy amid Dada fans. However, the rest of the track is full of moderate thrills and re-occurring sounds. Your forced to ask yourself what really makes this track so great. The vocal auto tune or the trademark Dada synths? If your leaning towards the vocal auto-tune then I can almost guarantee you will favor the remixes.

While the Cazzette remix was released amid Dada Life’s Musical Freedom compilation last month, the newest release, sees a remix from dirty Dutch king pin Chuckie. Chuckie rolls with the similar style we have heard from his recent studio releases. Chuckie’s remix rounds the package off with a unique take on the original, delivering a hard-hitting merge of distorted leads and grinding bass.

Firebeatz latest single, ‘Miniman’ was released Monday on Spinnin Records. ‘Miniman’ borrows stylistic elements from dubstep, but still brings the dutch heat. It has all the typical Firebeatz flare and is pumping with high-energy.

Dutch Beatz Anthem!
