Out Now: Dzeko & Torres – Hey EP

“HEY” – Hey is one of Dzeko & Torres first ventures in to the heavier-set realms of EDM. Although keeping aspects of their signature progressive melodies on the breakdowns, the track pulls a full 180 and drops into a hard hitting play of rising leads and grinding basslines. Met with an iconic ‘Hey’ chant, the track never stops building and is guaranteed to keep the crowd chanting along with their hands in the air the whole way through.

“BUPPY” – Still very much a big room track, “Buppy” explores a new sound stylistically for Dzeko&Torres. Its bouncy synth line drop and builders keep the track constantly grooving, designed for waking up the dance floor. On a proper sound system, the rhythmic tribal drums and punchy kick hit you high in your chest and the techy breakdown serves up the perfect opportunity for other EDM producers and DJ’s to get creative with their own edits.

“CHECK THIS OUT” – Check This Out is modern electro take on the old school rave sound. Sampling the famous vocal sample, the track builds with stuttered leads into a breakdown that pays homage to the fantastic melodies of Hardstyle and Happy Hardcore. Continuing to build, the track then drops back into the stuttered grunge, this time topped with a splash of an old school rave horn.
