Dancefreax Tune: Shermanology – The Only Way

Shermanology The Only Way 2013 Dancefreax
One of the most creative families on earth has released yet another
 awesome hybrid of ear slamming, nasty, jumpy electro and familiar Shermanology signature vocal progressive house. ‘The Only Way’ can lift crowds to ultimate heights. Festival main stage banger all the way!

Ever since this talented family, inspired by jazz, funk and soul, formed a solid dance act, they were an extremely popular name at clubs and festivals. Their unique sound in electronic music is like nothing heard on the clubland circuit now, and not ever.

They started as Andy and Dorothy, musically schooled by their Father and Uncle who were soul artists in their own right, The Sherman Brothers. Growing up with an appreciation of the greats, the pair only listened to the finest funk artists – Prince, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Bebe & Cece Winans and Earth Wind & Fire. In 2006 they released ‘3 Minutes To Explain’. This enormous club track was alongside the 2 greats, Fedde Le Grand and Funkerman, which validated the duo’s colossal potential. Leon Sherman then entered the frame to create once of the most diverse music families around.

Shermanology’s most recent release, ‘Can’t Stop Me’, a collaboration with superstar Afrojack, was a huge dance hit and made it’s way to almost every dance floor worldwide. As for fresh release ‘The Only Way’, the prognosis says this will be this summer’s next big club banger. ‘The Only Way’ is already supported by the world’s top notch DJ’s such as Steve Aoki, R3hab, Thomas Gold and played in international radio shows by Sander van Doorn, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nicky Romero, Afrojack and David Guetta.

Make sure your ears are glued to the stereo, because ‘The Only Way’ will take over the speakers!

Martin Garrix DJ Dancefreax 2013
Een van de meest gehypte en besproken teasers van mei 2013 was de teaser voor het nummer ‘Animals’. De naam van de DJ werd van te voren niet genoemd en vanaf dat moment raakten fans en bloggers in verhitte discussies over welke producer hier achter zou kunnen zitten. Het bleek de zeventienjarige Nederlandse Martin Garrix te zijn, officieel door het populaire magazine Billboard aangekondigd.

Na het stijgen in de hitlijsten de afgelopen week, bereikte ‘Animals’ de veelgeprezen nummer 1 plek op de belangrijkste dance chart op het web: Beatport.

New release: Markus Schulz – Scream

Back in June 2010 one of the world’s most inventive electronic music minds released the artist album odyssey that was ‘Do You Dream?’ Fan applause, cross-genre DJ support and dance press acclaim greeted one chart-scaling, master-blasting single after another.

From ‘Do You Dream’s day of release though, Markus Schulz had already begun imagining and conceiving the sound designs that would go to make up his next long-playing excursion.

Now, comprising a 19-track packed collection of ear catching, floor quenching, seismic audio, his ‘Dream’ is about to turn into a mighty ‘Scream’!

“When you’re in the studio, deep in production mode on an album, your mind’s eye is forever picturing the reactions tracks, and moments in tracks, are going to generate”, says Markus. So in many respects the title ‘Scream’ is also the album’s mission statement. It’s that response, that surge of feeling and emotion I want to come back up off the floor when one of its tracks goes on. When it happens, you know all the late hours in the studio, putting the pieces in place, have been worth it!”

With a single-minded quality-meets-quantity credo, Markus has made judicious use of known vocal talent and new singer/songwriter blood on the album. These include US-based sensations Jaren and Aruna, as well as Paper Aeroplanes front-woman Sarah Howells. Also front-and-centre are precocious newer talents, with the likes of Seri and new Schulz discovery-cum-protégée, Adina Butar joining ‘Scream’s vocal cast.

Giving the album a strong song-edged bias has resulted in one with productions that span EDM’s spectrum.

For every daytime radio inciting number (‘Until It’s Gone’, ‘Love Rain Down On Me’ and current single ‘Caught’ to tag but a few), there’s also the more underground themes of tracks like ‘Deep In The Night’, ‘Absolution’ and the album’s thrilling title track. During the final weeks of ‘Scream’s production Schulz commented:“one of the side-effects of producing instrumental long-players like my Dakota ‘Thoughts Become Things’ series is that you keenly feel how much you miss working with lyrics and vocals. ‘Scream’ will be my most vocal-oriented album yet and I believe that the singer-song-writing talent I’ve collaborated with, it will also make for my most accomplished”.

‘Scream’ isn’t exclusively about the vocal though. Building the consummate 360° electronic music album requires contrast and that comes firmly into focus with its heart-of-the-dancefloor seeking instrumentals. From the scene-setting beat-free overture of ‘Our Moment’ to the serrated synthery of floor-ammo like ‘Triotronic’, ‘Soul Seeking’ and ‘Loops n Things’ (with Ferry Corsten) it delivers a comprehensive, panoramic, day-or-night-time listening experience.

Through it Schulz has once again demonstrated that the production side of his mind is alive, kicking and quite literally screaming to be turned loose. And on August 31st that’s exactly what will happen.

Planet EDM will never be quite the same again.

Remix Of The Day: Rihanna – Where Have You Been

After the break up of his former musical focus, Sydney-based producer Streetcleaner shifted over to the realms of electronic dance music around mid- 2011. This previous musical experience lends itself to his driving and complex style of electro house, as well as the influence of artists such as Porter Robinson, Dirtyloud and Darth & Vader. His laptop and Logic Studio are the main weapons of choice Streetcleaner uses too channel this influence into explosive, hard- hitting dance music, along with Native Instruments’ Massive and various plugins and VSTs.

While only hitting the production scene fairly recently, Streetcleaner has already shown significant potential for such a short amount of time. Even more promise is expected for 2012 for Streetcleaner, with a number of releases lined up for the future, and even bigger plans awaiting in the long-run. His release schedule for 2012 includes five massive electro dance floor destroyers, Shoreside, The Jade Monkey, FThree, Badlands and the anticipated Zenith EP.
