SONG OF THE DAY: Deniz Koyu – “Bong”
Last year, Turkish DJ/producer Deniz Koyu dominated clubs all around the world with two aggressive electro tracks – “Tung” and “Hertz.” For 2012, he has two new tracks buzzing at the same time – “Turn It” with Fedde Le Grand and Johan Wedel – and “Bong.” With a chant/scream-fueled sports anthem vibe similar to “Tung,” the relentlessly energetic electro “Bong” is being released on Sebastian Ingrosso’s label Refune records. Listening to the just under 2 minute preview, you can tell that the hyped-up dirty dutch-vibed beats and addictive hooks are going to drive a dance floor crazy. DJ superstars like Guetta, Calvin Harris, and Axwell are already on the record, so it’s a sure thing that every other DJ will follow. The track itself is going to be a club favorite but we wonder how big it could be with a top line over it. Note to label – draft the vocal talents of big-voiced diva to knock it out of the park – maybe someone like Katherine Ellis, Anastacia or Debby Holiday? While we are unsure if we the track title is reference to a video game noise or drug paraphernalia, we look forward to playing the hot track in our DJ sets.
