SONG OF THE DAY: Demid Rezin & Paula P’Cay – Show Me

Listening to new tracks everyday, it is easy to become blas? and just say that it’s all starting to sound the same. Looking for a song that stands out can be quite a challenge sometimes. “Show Me” sounds actually a bit retro, with the feel of a late 2000’s Fedde Le Grand track – the bouncy electro house of “Scared of Me” or “Let Me Think About It.” The addition of a proggy piano line gives it a bit of a fresh twist, and the lyrics by German singer Paula P’cay make it memorable with the way you can easily sing along. It may not break any new ground in the EDM world, but it is catchy and will work on dancefloors. The video is definitely worth watching, as it feels like an Ylvis or Swedish Techno Society spoof of typical dance music clips.

SONG OF THE DAY: Fedde Le Grand ? Don?t Give Up

This track is going to sound familiar to a lot of you. If you watched the movie about the Ultra Music Festival’s 15th edition, “Don’t Give Up” is THAT track that has been unavailable. Set to be released at the start of the Winter Music Conference/Miami Music Week on March 24th, it will definitely be heard all week. The big room festival anthem combines the aggressive electro beats with a pretty, anthemic and uplifting interlude. Since the track is being set up to be quite massive, it seems inimitable that there will be a vocal version as well. It is quite funny that there are already mashups of the track floating around – like the solid one with Hardwell & W&W “Jumper.” While there is rarely a single song that defines the WMC anymore, this could possibly be the one. It also makes me wonder how this track fits into Fedde’s long-awaited follow-up album to ‘Output’ from back in 2009.
