DJ Track Reviews (w Huskey)


Gorgon City – Ready For Your Love ft. MNEK (Original Mix)
This track serves as a spotlight for MNEK; a 19-year-old singer and songwriter. MNEK creates perfect lyrics to fit Gorgon City’s track, which instantly engage the listener with the catchy hook-line I’m Ready For Your Love.
Gorgon City has written a track with emotion that sticks with you and reels you in from the start by the harmonizing that opens the track, to the murmuring backing vocals throughout the mix. Overall this is an excellent mix by incredible artists.

Anna Lunoe – Breathe (Original Mix)
Lunoe’s mesmerizing solo house single Breathe is a ‘breath’ taking dance vibe! This single shoes Lunoe’s unique ability to write, produce, and sing to perfection on her own tracks. The track overall reminded me of old 90’s house music with a futuristic 2014 touch to it with the ‘pop’ sounding vocals with that catchy hook “can’t breathe”. This House record is one to be appreciated in the dance scene throughout the world.

Bixel Boys – Black December (EP)
‘Black December’ released by the LA based tech house duo, ‘Bixel Boys’. This track gives a real twist to tech house with a deep garage bass line and the excellent dusted groove with the hi-hats and percussing which surely evoke a ‘Hannah Wants / Chris Lorenzo’ feel.

Justin Martin, Eats Everything – The Gettup (Original Mix)
These two have collaborated on their single to create a club mix with a tech house vibe. The track is nothing less than what you’ve come to expect from these two artists. A catchy, prime time house music anthem with grinding, garage tech bass. The Gettup has it all, stabbing chords, vocal reverbs, and two terrific builds with twisted vocals that lead up to some fantastic garage organ shaking bass house wobble which reminded me of the distinct bass house sound from the UK. Demonstrating the evolution of house music through the influences of sub genres such as: deep house, bass house & tech house.

Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn (Original Mix)
The brothers who have a way of making all their tracks sound massive, whilst keeping the overall mix very simplistic using repetitive deep bass lines and an appealing hook line, When A Fire Starts To Burn. You’ll find yourself singing along and dancing to the catchy lyrics of this hit. For me, I see Disclosure taking the traditional House music we have heard in the past to the next level. This mix is a great representation on the evolution of house and the direction, of which house music is heading.
