Dutch producer Re-Style is back with another killer track on the iconic hardcore imprint Masters Of Hardcore. 'Brainstorm' offers the perfect balance between hard and euphoric with your trademark distorted 909s offset by the spine-chilling yet uplifting melody. All this with some classic battle rap snippets and you’re good to go for yet another hardcore hit!
One of the true pioneers of the hardstyle scene delivers a three-track EP from his latest album, ‘All Around’ — now flying solo with Bas taking the reins of the project. This is his first album as a solo act but believe me the quality hasn't changed at all with epic melodies, forward thinking ideas and impeccable production throughout. My pick from this EP is ‘Always Orange’, a euphoric beast of a track proving you don't always need a sing-along vocal to make a big hit.
Following business on the likes of Dirt Crew and Detroit Swindle's fledgling Heist Recordings, Dutchman Nachtbraker clubs this one out of the park for easily Huddersfield's finest house label Hudd Traxx — nearing 50 releases and 10 years in the game. Loose and staggeringly funky, 'Zachtjes' is an incendiary piece of work, with a solid mix from Borrowed Identity. 'Oversteppen', on the flip, slow burns its way to glory, a glorious slab of space house.
The ‘deep house’ that’s apparently set to take the US by storm this year doesn’t really have a lot to do with deep house, but this remix for Axwell /\ Ingrosso suggests a new middle ground for EDM that will potentially see some craft return to the main stage this year. The appeal is more melodic electro than anything else, and AMTRAC does a fine job of making the vocal his own.
