We’ve got a lot of artists trying out new sounds this time around on our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Dyro and Quintino come out of left field with their latest tracks and succeed, Big Fish Recordings prove they have their finger on the pulse of electro, Wiwek brings the jungle terror, and more.
Deep/Tech/Indie | Eva Be feat. Ben Ivory – Closer EP [Poesie Musik]
Eva Be teams up with vocalist Ben Ivory to deliver another melodic deep house masterwork from our favorite label of eternal melancholy, Poesie Musik. Since dropping her debut album in 2007, Eva Be has been DJing across Europe. Her latest, Closer, is a choice cut of true contemporary deep house. Future house heads, take note. Grab it here.
Big Room/Electro | Dirty Rush & Gregor Es – Rocket (Original Mix) [Big Fish]
Whenever we’re in desperate need of that nu-lectro/complextro sound, we know we can turn to Lazy Rich’s Big Fish Recordings. All killer, no filler, Big Fish Recordings catalog showcases some of the finest tracks in the electro house scene. This week, Dirty Rush & Gregor Es unleash the hands-in-the-air anthem Rocket, a perfect combo of a mainstage drop amidst melodic overtones. This one is handcrafted for peak hour. Get it here.
Electro | Dyro feat. Dynamite MC – Against All Odds (Original Mix) [WOLV]
Hardwell protege Dyro has taken a sharp left away from the mainstage sound you’d usually associate him with on the third release from his recently launched imprint, WOLV. With a breakdown reminiscent of grimy mid-’90s big beat, Against All Odds showcases a side of Dyro we weren’t at all aware existed. But we like it. A lot. Pick it up here.
House/Big Room | Pep & Rash – Fatality (Quintino Edit) [SPRS]
We certainly didn’t expect this one out of Quintino. Laying down his big room mainstage hat, Quintino goes for a more jackin’ house vibe on his remix of Pep & Rash’s Fatality. Here’s hoping this innovative trend continues. Buy the track here.
Jungle Terror | Wiwek feat. MC Vocab – So You Want Drums (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
Wiwek is back with more jungle terror vibes on his Rimbu label. You’ll get exactly what you expect upon pressing play, and that’s not a bad thing at all. Wiwek’s signature sound of tribal percussion surrounded by shouts and animal sounds is clearly distinguishing him from the pack–expect a meteoric rise in the very near future. Get it here.
