If you thought Wolfgang Gartner was already a big name in modern music, get ready for him to blow the hell up. The electro house pioneer has recently been signed to Ultra Records, a juggernaut of an EDM label. His first showing on Ultra was a collaboration with Deadmau5, a funky electro track that rocked the house as well as topped the charts. Now, we finally see Wolfgang’s first solo single on Ultra Records, Illmerica, and I am not disappointed.
As with nearly every new Wolfgang Gartner track, Illmerica is sure to be played out at clubs and parties for months to come. The track is definitely his in style, but the sound is something brand new. You will hear hints of rock, and a bit of that funk seen in the Wolfgang/Deadmau5 collaboration. It’s a hard thing to admit, and almost a bit scary to think about, but it’s now clear to me that Wolfgang Gartner has yet to peak as an artist. I can’t imagine what he’ll be bringing us next.
