CALL OF THE WILD

Disclosure’s Wild Life Detroit festival bridges generations of dance music...
Zylax - Scott Brown - Evolution

Scottish hardcore legend Scott Brown is back with a new release on his Evolution imprint. Scott has always been at the forefront of the bouncy side of hardcore, be it the European flavour, or his native UK style. This release focuses on the current ‘powerstomp’ sound rocking the UK at the moment. No big epic breaks, this is all about 4/4 kicks, bass, blips and bleeps. If there is a better definition of music written for the dancefloor, I want to hear it!

Live Ammunition - Evil Activities - Neophyte

The hardcore hit machine is back with a new release to damage your eardrums with! Known for his euphoric, hands-in-the-air approach to the hardcore sound, Evil Activities throws us a curveball this time, with a monster hardcore hip-hop fusion. With the main hook of the track being the '80s style East-coast influenced break, this is perfect to give the dancefloor an opportunity to catch their breath to the bouncy b-boy beats, before the build and drop that releases pure fury out of the speakers. An instant hit!

Saleh - Dauwd - Kompakt

Dauwd's been a buy-on-sight artist for this page for some time now, and this second excursion on Cologne's eminent Kompakt — a label which arguably feels more like his spiritual home than Michigan's equally illustrious Ghostly International, which has also released his work — is perfectly pitched. Neither title track 'Saleh' or 'Moiety' will drag you in instantly, but once they do and you realise the craft that's gone into this pair of unctuous delights — 'Moiety' in particular — you'll be a slave to them. Go on, stick it on again.

Rokkstar - The Prophet - Scantraxx

The Prophet drops another fresh single on his Scantraxx label with this great simple vocal running throughout it, steering away from the big melodies or the rawstyle distorted sounds which are common on most hardstyle releases at the moment to produce this great club banger track. Written for club dancefloors rather than the big festival arenas, this is sure to pick up plays right across the board and adds a good bit of variety into DJ sets.
