With remixes for LA Riots, Cold Blank and Armand Van Helden in the past few years, Connecticut born talent TJR (born TJ Rozdilsky) is one of today’s blooming names when it comes to electro house.
His latest release, a single with DJ Gant-Man by the name of Juke It, promotes nothing but the finest aspects of late night clubbing. Although the lyrics are surprisingly dirtier than the track title suggests, they are clearly overshadowed by the clever, powerful, and melodically appealing electro rhythms. Although the synth lines generally stay true to contemporary electro, remnants of early video game soundtracks peek through (Sonic at around 2:42 anyone?). Be it college party or underground electro rave, I can’t wait to see this track dropped amongst an unsuspecting crowd.
If you’re generally not into the hip-hop driven vocals of what I like to call “party electro,” I’ve included the dub mix of this track as well. Note that a dub mix represents a mix with fewer, or no vocals, not a dubstep style remix.
