SONG OF THE DAY: Marletron – World Is Yours

Following the path of rocktronica goddess Jes, singer Marletron steps behind the decks to produce and DJ as well. Previously known as Velvet Code, singer Marlon Wurmitzer crafted catchy electropop songs like “Get Outta My House” and “Say You Love Me,” which blended rock and industrial with an Adam Lambert kind of vibe. With “The World Is Yours,” the sound is progressive house with uplifting inspirational lyrics, like what you would expect from Markus Schulz or Armin van Buuren on of their crossover radio hits. For clubland, the Futuristic Polar Bears ups the energy a bit for the big rooms while Nathan C roughens it up with chainsaw-styled electro for a harder edge. The always reliable Morlando injects a different kind of NRG for the hands-in-the-air commercial clubs. Adding live vocal performances while DJing might be that extra step that takes Marletron up to that next level of success his talent deserves.

SONG OF THE DAY: Velvet Code – “Get Outta My House”

With the sheer volume of electro crossing over and the rising trend of retrotechno, I’ve been waiting for someone to delve further and bring back industrial.  Though he calls it ‘bitchpop,” Canadian-born club kid Velvet Code has unknowingly channelled the vibe of Front 242 on the bridges for his new single “Get Outta My House.”  The story of psychotic love affairs make for a perfect club/pop record, and the aggressive electro beat fits perfectly. The video is even more frenetic, with human Barbie dolls acting out courtship and violent revenge fantasies. The eye-make up makes them look like live action anime characters. Giving someone a hand has a whole new meaning after watching the clip.  DJs, watch out for remixes by Mark Loverush & Timothy Allan and the Wideboys to play in your primetime sets.
