SONG OF THE DAY: Erik Arbores – Galactic 

erik-arbores-galactic-spinnin

During Winter Music Conference, a topic often discussed was how so many of the big tracks sound nearly identical.  Leave it to a young producer to bring a fresh taste to the current trends.  Sixteen year-old producer Erik Arbores caught everyone’s attention a few years ago when he was discovered by Armin van Buuren, signed to Armada records, and became the youngest person ever to top the Dutch iTunes chart with his ‘Take It EP” and named Best New Dance Artist.  Fast forward a few years and together with a few friends around the same age (Martin Garrix, Julian Jordan, and DeeWayne) they are unleashing some of the biggest international club records.  On “Galactic,” he starts with the triplet sound which was made massive by “Tsunami” and adds the twist of a ’60s horn vibe as the rhythm line.  When you say that out loud it does sound strange, but when you hear it works so well and gives the big room EDM sound a different, happier vibe that is less dark and foreboding.   Keeping that happy vibe, the video features well-breasted females dressed in bright candy colors while trapped in a gumball machine and trying to entice little boys out of their pocket change.  Yeah, that seems a bit inappropriate, but the ending is so cute that you can almost look past it.
