SONG OF THE DAY: Tristan Garner – “Machine Gun”
Leave it to a Frenchman to shake things up a bit. At a time when a lot of the big guys are doing the stadium house and trance 2.0 sound, producer Tristan Garner is bringing in the rock vibe. “Machine Gun” has the energy of classic Prodigy, harnessing the testosterone of rock – a banging big beat loop (not too dissimilar to Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll”). Melding the beat with a vocal chant, a breakdown to a fusion of progressive rock and dubstep, and a build-up to another rock explosion: that’s the plan for this track. Comparisons to fellow frenchmen Daft Punk and Justice are obvious as this WTF track will garner a massive club response whenever deployed. If “Professional Griefers” by deadmau5 was a big track for you, “Machine Gun” is a no-brainer. Now imagine how insane this would sound with a topline by someone like A Girl and a Gun or Luciana.
