"Flamenco" Harry Romero, Alex Kenji & Erick Morillo ft Mati (Preview)

The return of BIGROOM HOUSE is upon us! I remember the nights in NYC dancing until the sun came up and its been a few years since I felt any music really gave us that feeling again. Everyone has been so involved in the rise of anthem EDM and the outdoors festivals the indoors big room club music has been lacking however thats all about to change. In the last month I have heard some of these house music giants returning everyone from Peter Rauhofer to Erick Morillo are revisiting the sound that has vanished from the forefront for many years now. "Flamenco" with Alex Kenji & Harry Romero is one of those tracks that begs for you to spin at peak hour. Subliminal Records has released a preview but you can follow the download link to Beatport and snag this beauty right now. Check it out below! I also included another gem "Beat Of The Drum" by T3KTONE the Erick Morillo & Harry Romero remix! This Winter is gonna be BIGROOM READY!

Jessie Ware - What You Won't Do For Love (Bobby Caldwell Cover) + FREE Remixes

After posting that little ditty from Jessie Ware earlier this week it got me thinking about some of her other music. She did an amazing cover of the classic "What You Won't Do For Love" by Bobby Caldwell. The original is a chill out NuDisco track but I have found some bootlegs that I want to share with you guys. I will also link the original so you can check it out, probably one of the sickest songs from this past year.

Alicia Keys "Girl On Fire" TOTALLY SOUNDS LIKE...

This isnt DANCE music but I wanted to share this for the sake of showing how big business and pop music sort of just regurgitates better music.. yes BETTER music.. lol

Alicia Keys latest single "Girl On Fire" is heating up the airwaves but it sounded like another song I had heard before... Jessie Ware "Wildest Moments".. and its not just a similarity.. other than the chorus (which is clearly the same chorus Alicia Keys always uses.. yell..yell...yel LOL). Jessie Ware's version is clearly more suited for the melody and 80's inspired drum loop. Take a listen below and you let me know, which one is hotter..

What Is TRAP House Music?

Hey everyone! Ok so one of the most asked questions I get is "what is this new style of music you are playing, it sounds like a crazy form of hip hop?" or I get people asking me what TRAP HOUSE is when I mention it on Twitter or Facebook. I thought I would take this time to give you a decent explaination LOL

As many of you are familiar with Dubstep and Moombahton became very popular forms of EDM (electronic dance music) over the last couple of years. There is an offshoot to those flavors and it sort of happened organically, Trap House. 

Trap house is a combination of several styles of music, first ingredient, Crunk rap beat formula. The tempo and beat combinations are the same with slightly different pitching to the vocals (if it includes any vocals or samples). Next flavor, Dutch house, using chord progressions from Dutch house adds the electronic sound to the bass'd out beat patterns. Last drop, Dubstep, the bass and wobble can sometimes come from the Dubstep sound, or even Dub in general, its usually a very all encompassing bass element. It sounds very confusing but in fact when it comes together its very simple sounding and to the unknowing ears it might sound like a hip hop instrumental with some strange noises LOL. 

I happen to love this new style, it can be manipulated and played with quite a bit, below I will include some standard examples of Trap house music for you guys! Expect to hear a lot of this from me over the next few months included in my sets... thanks!
