After a successful 2014 with releases “Got To Love Somebody”, “Make The Building Shake” and the hugely successful collab track “Rock Da Scene” with big players CHUCKIE & VICE, long standing VICIOUS artist SGT SLICK returns with his fresh new club banger “Freak Show”!
Having previous releases stack up support from legends like TIESTO, DIPLO, CHUCKIE, STAFFORD BROTHERS and STEREOHEROES to name a very small few, it’s fair to say that that the Sarge’s productions come part-n-parcel with a strong seal of approval.
Staying true to form, Slick has definitely produced a whopper here. Stacked and packed with nothing but pure peaktime madness, incorporating a synth laden half-step breakdown, classic energising builds and a solid bounce driven bassline banger that’s sure to get the punters moving!
Since the first outing back in 2004, Matthew Dear’s AUDION guise has predominantly acted as a darker, edgier commentary to the pop-infused house concoctions to be found under the producer’s birth name. A twisted reflection of sorts, it contemplated electronic music through the lens of grime-flecked techno and sinewy funk – resulting in relentless floor-fillers like the aptly named ”Kisses”, “Just Fucking” or “Mouth To Mouth” and of course the heavily supported collaborations with TIGA; “Let’s Go Dancing” and “Fever”. Compared to the itchy momentum and carnal damp of these freak classics, the sophisticated elegance of his new offering “Dem Howl” is rather unexpected.
Chaperoned by the emotionally charged timbre of Danish vocalist TROELS ABRAHAMSEN, who also featured on KÖLSCH‘s “All That Matters” – this cut steers towards the more introspective moments on the dance floor without sacrificing one iota of the precisely engineered groove machinery that is AUDION.
Gripping remixes come from Dutch maestro JORIS VOORN and Kompakt label head-honcho MICHAEL MAYER, who cater to the enthusiasts of evocative bells and epic synth pads – simply beautiful mood pieces for the club floors, just as immersive and timeless as the original.
Already supported by heavyweight DJs the likes of Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1), Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), Steve Angello, John Digweed, Purple Disco Machine and Dave Seaman to name a small few!
Make way and welcome yet another talented young German DJ/Producer rising star to the VICIOUS family, LE SHUUK smashing it on his new tune “Seth”!
Having already gained the attention, props and supports from DAVID GUETTA, DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE, CHUCKIE, ROGER SANCHEZ and OLIVER TWIZT to name but a few, this is sure to raise some interest on the international circuit.
Deep brooding builds, eerie vocal hooks, grinding energy and tight stabbing melodic synths throughout, this truly breaks the mould of the current Electro scene. File this under sure-fire dance-floor fillers!
Sampling the chart-topping disco classic ”Everyman” by Double Exposure – also most notably used in the infamous house classic “Salsoul Nugget” – VICIOUS brings you the latest incarnation for the 2015 dance floors from SUGAR HILL & WASABI with “It’s On You”!Having hit the coveted COOL CUTS CHART in December 2014, this tune has been doing the rounds with spins some of the biggest house heads in UK/Europe and is sure to now become a Summer anthem in Oz.Showcasing 2 outstanding remixes from GANZFELD EFFECT on an energetic piano-laden future house tip and PURPLE DISCO MACHINE turning out a wicked stabby tech-house shuffle, then rounded out by the original cut which stays true to the disco vibes adding some extra bass line for good measure!
Breaking out and bringing the big guns on their first ever release on VICIOUS, Italian duo RAYVEN & VALEXX smash out a HUGE electro floor-filler with “Escape”!
The duo have already received the tick of approval on previous releases from fellow electro heads NICKY ROMERO, THOMAS GOLD, DADDY’S GROOVE, JOHN DAHLBACK & DIGITAL LAB to name a select few.
Stocked to the brim with driving energy and wobbling bass lines paired with some spectacular melodic synths – this is set to blow up the floors and festivals!
