Sweets of the Week – March 2

March 2nd, 2012

Posted by Scott Willats

 

Stress. All weeks are not built the same, a point proven by this week. Plenty of grey-hair-causing, wrinkle-inducing. While I won’t bore you with the details of what gave rise to these symptoms, I will tell you the remedy. When a day, week or month really has you on the ropes, the best way to recover and rebuild is with a healthy soundtrack. This week I got ripped a new one, and these tracks helped keep the ship above water. Brand new tracks from Felix Cartal, FatRat and Vaski, plus some household names.


SWEETS

Pretty sure it’s safe to say that Nicky Romero is 2012. Probably my new favourite big room track. Smells like Miami.

This is scary. If Felix Cartal starts delivering more traditional house tracks like this one, he could be the next frontliner on the stadium circuit.

Directly — as in minutes — before I heard this, I said “If I hear another Gotye remix, I’m never listening to that song again.” Then I heard this. What do they say about losing something? It’s always in the last place you look. Sidenote: The original version of this song just so happens to be the biggest track in the world — and if you’re a regular “Sweets” checker, you would’ve learned about it HERE back on Oct. 21. Plenty reason to booooooooookmark us!

Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (TheFatRat Remix): LISTEN TO IT HERE


Well, it’s finally been officially released. Ingrosso & Alesso. You are allowed to die now.

Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso – Calling (Lose My Mind): LISTEN TO IT HERE


To be honest, I’ve never really paid much attention to Kick N Licks but this song is fart-in-my-tuna-salad-nasty!

Kicks N Licks – Time: LISTEN TO IT HERE


R3hab literally doesn’t stop does he? This flying Dutchman has more pace than Arjen Robben. (Soccer fans will get that.)

Labrinth – Last Time (R3hab Mix): LISTEN TO IT HERE


First we speak of the original. Diplo really knows how to make a smooth r&b track. The way he massages the beat to Usher’s voice is something you’d expect from producers like Danger, Darkchild or Timbaland. Sick. Then Vaski just f**ks it all up. Nasty!


I don’t have a new video for you this week; if you’re searching for one, check yesterday’s Zeds Dead post. I do, however, have something a whole lot better: that latest instalment of Scott’s Selections. Six very very very heav tracks! Be sure to pick it up.
