SONG OF THE DAY: TJR and Vinai – Bounce Generation

There were two “Bounce” tracks that broke during the Winter Music Conference – not Melbourne bounce – but bouncy electro tracks which feature the word bounce as if to describe the way you dance to it.? Showtek & Ookay unleashed “Bouncer,” which added a bit of trap and synth-pop with the commanding chant to “Let Me See You Bounce.”??? While not sounding exactly like “Ode to Oi” or “What’s Up Suckaz,” it is easy to identify “Bounce Generation” as a TJR track.?? Working with Italian “Raveology” duo Vinai, TJR spruces up his signature with the chant “everybody make it bounce,” a heavily-accented female voice saying “bass keeps pumping” (or at least that’s what it sounds like), and?a dropout with a sick, rolling buildup.??Crowd response is assured as “Bounce Generation” is as instant as a Deorro track – party music for big rooms and festivals that will rile people up to go crazy.?

SONG OF THE DAY: Showtek & Ookay – Bouncer

Another great example of blending genres, Dutch duo Showtek add a bit of trap to their aggressive electro sound. Though this isn’t just your typical banging track, there’s also a good bit of happy synth-pop, like a hybrid of Cash Cash and Walden. The three different elements work really well together, and adding the rapper Oookay with the line “Let Me See You Bounce” just takes it way over the top. The video features clips of their fans dancing (and bouncing) in their unique style – kind of like the infamous “#Selfie” video and it fits absolutely perfectly. Add “Bouncer” to another in the line of massive Showtek hits from the past year – “Booyah,” “Cannonball,” “We Like To Party,” – maybe the next track should be called “Unstoppable.”
