SONG OF THE DAY: W&W & Headhunterz – “Shocker”

What do you get when you cross electro and hardstyle? Maybe Showtek on crack? That’s a pretty good description for “Shocker,” the forthcoming track from Dutch electro duo W&W and hardstyle maven Headhunterz. Just as Showtek transitioned from hardstyle to electro under the tutelage of Ti?sto, it looks like Headhunterz is doing the same. “Shocker” is banging, hard, aggressive, noisy, and pretty much the definition of a raging track. Aside from the vocal sample “Come and Get My Love,” the track is almost inhuman with its intensity and modernization of rave-techno. Even at a time when a lot of these electro tracks are starting to sound the same, “Shocker” stands out with its pure aggression.

SONG OF THE DAY: Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Diplo, and Fatboy Slim ft Bonde Do Role + Pin? – Epparei (W&W Remix)

It looks like Fatboy Slim’s “Bem Brasil” album is becoming the soundtrack of the summer.? Inspired by the World Cup and his love of Brazilian sounds, the double CD has already spawned the Gregor Salto mixes of “Madalena” and “Sambo Do Mundo” that are so infectious, you can’t not play them. Up next is “Epparei” which unites what seems like half of the DJ Mag Top on one track.? The original album version is like a trap take on mambo (yes, it works). Add in the full cast of characters and it’s an ADHD EDM lover’s fantasy – because something different happens about every 30 seconds.? No, it’s not disjointed, there are just so many different elements (tribal drums, chanting, reverse vocal efx, big horns, massive drop, festival electro) that it feels like a whole night compressed into 4 minutes.? This W&W remix of “Epparei” has set the bar for big room festival anthems so expect to hear played all summer long.
