At the pace the EDM world moves at, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with the day-to-day progression and releases of each musical genre, let alone the entire EDM movement. Some of the big artists work so fast that they’ve got a new release every week or so! In a world that’s exploded with electronic music artists, it’s not unlikely to have 75-100 names (at least) that you would be excited to see any new release from. With that being said, here’s a mini-collection of what the Big 3 in Dutch house are up to these days.
Sidney Samson has been on a streak of hot remixes. With his name on the back of 3OH!3 and Flo Rida releases, it’s clear that he’s not afraid to bring his sound to the mainstream stage. The track here is his remix of Club Can’t Handle Me. He effectively turns the dance club hit into a Dutch house romper. That’s why we love Sidney, ain’t it?
Next is a new release from Chuckie (pictured above, left) and Gregori Klosman, Mutfakta. This one happens to be mashed up with Chocolate Puma’s Chants. They’re both tracks that have been mashed up lately and they really seem to compliment each other well. Hopefully the parts from the Chuckie track make themselves pretty obvious. It’s one of the more unique sounding Dutch house songs recently, and frankly, I’m glad to see Chuckie doing more than the straight club Dutch sound.
While Sidney is remixing the big names, and Chuckie is experimenting with new aspects of the dutch sound, 2010 sensation Afrojack (pictured above, right) is bringing elements from other genres to dutch house. His recent original, Replica (released yesterday!) is not only one of the best tracks released from Afrojack EVER, but a clear sign of the progression of his sound throughout 2010. This one keeps itself exciting, and as heavy and flat-out baller as the first drop may be, those following it somehow build more even energy. A year ago I’d never have thought I would be saying this, but this really is so much more than a Dutch house track. Compliments to you, Afrojack… you’ve had quite the year!
