SONG OF THE DAY: Steve Aoki & R3hab – “Flight”
This is one of those tracks where you can look at the artists involved and the title and pretty much hear what it’s going to sound like before you even click play. That’s not really a bad thing when it is done so well. Steve Aoki, the jester of party DJs, teams with chainsaw electro master R3hab for a full-throttle aggressive electro track with an uncredited male vocalist that commands you to “Jump.” Classic rave and modern electro combine for banging beats, with suitable interludes to catch your breath between the madness. Similar to Laidback Luke/Martin Solvieg “Blow,” “Flight’ is a no-brainer instant club hit that will keep dance floors rocking through the cold summer months and probably be played at every pool party during Winter Music Conference. Expect a mashup with the Steve Aoki/Laidback Luke track “Turbulences” to surface in the next day or two. Special kudos to whoever designed the “Eat Sleep Cake Repeat” t-shirt.
