Some tracks are made for the clubs. Some are made for parties, while others are made for chilling out. And some tracks are made for another planet. Certain DJs have the ability to create something special from the most unearthly sounds imaginable.
As for example: We Plants Are Happy Plants. Hungarian producer Peter Bergmann makes innovative, “soundtracky” tunez that would feel right at home at the movies, yet hit the sweet spot for all us EDM fans. And they bang, too.
His latest offering, “Earth Mars Venus,” is a track tailor-made for an interplanetary cruise: dark yet inspiring, and perfect for a Monday. Be sure to pick it up on iTunes — and check out the video.
A short week, what with the Family Day holiday on Monday, but I’ve still managed to load up a supply of raging tunes to rock you all through the weekend. We’ve got new cuts from some lesser-known names that you’ll want to clear some memory space for, plus a brand new remix from New York’s own Nico Jaar that is up to his usual high standards. Plus new joints from A-Trak, Guxxi Vump and Conspirator. A serious supply of 128 bpm, so let’s get right into it.
Seems right now like some of the most innovative sounds are coming out of … Hungary? Tits & Clits put this country on the map for me, but it’s We Plants Are Happy Plants that have me booking my flight to Budapest. This track may not get people in the club raging like lunatics — but it’s definitely one for those early morning sessions when you feel the need to zone out and vibe.
Nico Jaar has the rare ability to make each of his songs sound completely different from the others. That’s creativity in a nutshell. Another slower track for you to vibe to — and like the previous offering, it’s a top-quality production.
