This is one of the most infectious tracks I’ve heard this year. Croatian duo, Drop Dopers, have turned Mariah Carey’s “Emotions” into an unstoppable force of house goodness. It’s piano house with the energy of a big room track and the underground appeal of a deep house groove, all the while driving a pop hook. It’s kind of amazing that this track hasn’t exploded all over the internet, but that’s only a matter of time. For now it’s up as a free download so make sure to grab it while you can!
In a power play no one saw coming, electro/EDM superstar Chris Lake teamed up with Chris Lorenzo of UK’s burgeoning G-house scene for a low-key, stripped down, incredibly deep cut that is going to make all of the 80′s and 90′s babies go insane.
A new take on Chris Isaak’s Top 40 hit single “Wicked Game,” this edit takes the notorious acapella of Isaak’s supercroon and blends it superbly with an enticing, down tempo house vibe composed of shimmering pads, mellowed piano hooks, and a slick combination of kicks and snares. Thus, a newer, fresher, bouncier life is instilled into a track otherwise known as a sappy, tragic killjoy; a hard feat to accomplish, but one that Lorenzo and Lake have astonishingly succeeded in doing (while also showcasing a side to them that hasn’t been seen yet). Make sure you get on this while you can.
Listen to “Wicked Games” after the jump and visit Chris Lake’s SoundCloud for a free download of the track.
