SONG OF THE DAY: KSHMR – Megalodon

Yeah, it’s that track.? The one that everyone was trying to figure who the producer was. My money was on DVBBS & Bourgeous but it ends up being the “mysterious” KSHMR.? Not much is known about “him,” aside from his fear of vowels and love of extinct sharks, since the Instagram is private (though there are over 3000 followers with no posts) and his Facebook/Twitter accounts have just been started. Makes you think that KSHMR is probably a pseudonym, with the person to be unveiled at Spinnin’ Session in Miami (for which this song is the soundtrack of the teaser). ?Back to the track, it’s a big crowd pleaser with “Tsunami”-esque triplet rolls and a classic musical-vibed breakdown.? That may sound strange in print, but it really works as a scary and dark, yet enchanting big room track.? Keep an eye on this track as it will no doubt explode into something bigger by the time WMC gets here.

SONG OF THE DAY: Borgeous – “Invincible”

One sign of a superstar producer/DJ is the ability to take their big room track vibe and make it work with a full vocal song. Following the massive “Tsunami” (with DVBBS) and “Stampede” (with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Dvbbs), Borgeous is stepping up to the plate on his own to show that he is definitely on the way to the big time. The intro to “Invincible” has a similar feel to the last two singles, with a slightly more progressive and subdued feel.? The drop at 30 seconds goes right to the vocals of an uncredited singer who sings her heart out over the pretty keyboard notes. Granted, the minute of beatless music might be hard to play for commercially-oriented DJs, but this will be massive in the big rooms with people singing along right into the energetic, stadium house-styled middle part.? It’s as if Borgeous realized that “Tsunami” was going to become a massive “Animals” kind of hit and wanted to have a commercial-oriented vocal ready to go.? Or maybe he is following the trajectory of other big room DJs who alternate big room club track releases with vocal songs .? Either way, “Invisible” will be a great end of night record which will easily find it onto the iPods of clubbers around the world (and maybe even radio stations as well).
