Welcome to THE CLUB. A weekly dose of your favourite house, progressive house, electro house, and everything-in-between.. Each week I’ll bring you a selection of my favourites of the week from the best producers in the world. I’ll try to feature an emerging artist or two that catches my eye more than most, so make sure to keep your eye out for weekly servings of the biggest and best names in house music worldwide.
Today I’ve got some new tracks from a few of my favourite producer, Nicky Romero and Felix Cartal. Nicky’s track, “Generation 303”, brings back to life the Chemical Brothers sample from “Block Rockin Beats”, and then drops into something you might expect from the legends themselves – with an obvious Nicky Romero feel to it. Felix, on the other hand, released “Domo”. This is some next level future electro house rave shit. Out of all the tracks on this list today, “Domo” is what I want to hear next time I’m in the club or at a festival, raving hard alongside a few thousand or so..
This past Wednesday I got the chance to check out Sander van Doorn when he came to Cobra London. My first visit to the second (and much more spacious) Cobra Nightclub in a university town that was aching for a place that international DJs would be proud to throw down at. Being a Wednesday during exam time, I was skeptical of what the turnout might be, but that place WENT OFF. Maybe it was Sander dropping bombs like “What Did I Do”, which you’ll find on today’s feature. Or maybe it was the LED ceiling and colour-lit skull covered walls and mirrors behind the booth. The vibe was great, and it was nice to see the sounds of a DJ like Sander so well received by the crowd. I’ll be back at Cobra London for Hardwell this coming Wednesday and I might just lose my mind once he starts playing tracks like “Spaceman” or his edit of Michael Brun’s “Dawn”, or “Cobra”, or .. okay, I could go on for a while. Hardwell has become a standard here on The Club, and at just 22, he is set up for years of supremacy atop the world of electro house.
Moguai released his sophmore album this past week with tracks featuring the likes of Tommy Trash, but my favourite song after listening to the album a few times was “Hush Hush”. It really shows his evolvement and talent as a producer since his debut album in 2010. The cohesion of the album as an entirety impresses me, and while it makes a great listening album, it was just as easy to single out any of the tracks on it for a progressive/electro house set.
I know I usually don’t say much but this week I felt the need to make sure you take note of a few particular tracks. While every song on this list is a straight banger as always, there are those tracks like Fedde’s “So Much Love” or Kaskade’s “Turn It Down” that deserve the shout out. When one of the most exciting up and coming producers Deniz Koyu drops his epic remix of “So Much Love”, shortly after releasing the incredible “Turn It Down” remix that I featued last week, I think you guys need to know. Deniz maintains the beauty that each of those tracks were founded on, and infuses the big room energy that they were lacking (although I thought it impossible to top either “So Much Love” or “Turn It Down”).
If you love the music like I do, make sure you support the artists and purchase the music at a music outlet such as Beatport or similar!
