1. Breach – Jack
My favorite party in Miami during Miami Music Week this year was hands down the Dirtybird BBQ. First of all, if you want a chill party with crazy star power hit it up. This song was the only song that was played by both Eats Everything & Catz ‘n Dogz and Justin Martin & Claude VonStroke (both were b2b sets). This just goes to show how crazy this song is. This has already been called the song of the summer in deep house circles, and I wholeheartedly believe it will be. If you’re going to be at a deep house show in the coming months, be prepared to hear this song.
2. Gent & Jawns – Holler
Before I get into the song itself, I have to say Billy the Gent is probably my favorite DJ name ever. That being said, I love the direction that moombahton is taking. It’s starting to get away from the strict reggaeton vibe started by Dave Nada and taking more of a full sound. I like Gent & Jawns‘s work (Vibrate was awesome too) and the sound they are pushing.
3. Jay Fay – Dibby Dibby
I am rolling out another moombahton track. Again this is more of the developed song that Gent & Jawns are using right now. This one is not quite as heavy as Holler, but I would argue it’s a bit more fun. This is definitely a bouncy jam and kind of groovy too. Definitely something new, definitely something cool.
4. Zomboy – Here To Stay (Sikdope Remix)
Getting away from moombah into some bouncy dubstep. I’m generally not a huge fan of brostep but it does sound so good when sped up. Sikdope just has fun with this remix and you can tell.
5. Farkas – Tribal Dance
Staying with the quick and energetic dubstep. Keeping it fun, keeping it bouncy.
Some songs don’t blow you away on the first listen. Instead it takes a few good listens for them to be truly amazing. These songs are the ones that you find yourself singing all day long. In this new section, I have picked the one song from the week before that I could not get out of my head all week. Introuducing…
Sleeper of the Week
Close feat. Charlene Soraia & Scuba – Beam Me Up
Great, great deep house song. After I heard this it was literally stuck in my head all day, and I
had to go home and listen to it 3 times in a row. Scuba is a big name in the scene and it’s
easy to see why. Listen to it once, and you just might end up listening to it on repeat for the rest
of the day.
