Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Sean Tyas goes psytrance, BURNS sings on his own track again, Third Son debuts on 303Lovers, and more.
Deep/Tech | Third Son – Terminal EP [303Lovers]
Quickly rising tech house star Third Son has turning heads since his first release through Noir Music last summer. This week we see his debut on Luigi Rocca, Manuel De La Mare, and Alex Kenji’s celebrated underground imprint, 303Lovers. Targeted with laser precision to sophisticated dancefloors, Third Son’s latest three tracker, the Terminal EP, is a no-frills afterhours package that delivers the heat to keep bodies on the dancefloor til the morning. Grab it here.
Techno | Keita Sano – Holding New Cards LP [1080p]
Fresh off the press on Vancouver’s uber-cool 1080p label, Keita Sano shows his latest wares with the Holding New Cards LP. The whole of the release is fantastic, but Happiness stands out as a real highlight. An acidic bassline and tape-drenched pads play against the backdrop of classic TR-x0x drums. Foot stomper, hip shaker–get involved. Pick it up here.
House/Electro | BURNS – When I’m Around U (Original Mix) [Spinnin’]
Singer/songwriter/DJ/producer BURNS may be one of the most underrated producers in house music, which is easily demonstrable by the aforementioned list of talents rarely possessed all by one person. When I’m Around U is as energetic as BURNS gets, with his own vocals laid atop a track that somehow perfectly straddles the line between true “house music,” electro, and big room. There’s also a pretty fun music video that goes along with it to boot. Download here.
Big Room/Electro | Martin Garrix & Tiesto – The Only Way Is Up (Original Mix) [Musical Freedom]
It’s that time of year again–the biggest tracks from the biggest producers are finding their way into the sets of the biggest DJs for festival season. This summer, we highly doubt there will be a bigger EDM smash than the recently released collab between Tiesto and Martin Garrix, The Only Way Is Up. Moving far from the sound the two have become associated with (namely festival electro house), the Dutch duo produce a melodic mainstage monster we know we’ll hear somewhere north of 10 million times over the summer season. Get it here.
Trance | Sean Tyas – Da Doo Da Dah (Original Mix) [Subculture]
From big room to epic trance, Sean Tyas knows how to cater to a wide variety of sound pallettes. This time, Sean’s going psy with his newest release on John O’Callaghan’s Subculture label, Da Doo Da Dah. Good luck remembering the proper spelling of that, but no matter–the ferocious drop more than makes up for the cumbersome name. Purchase here.
