Deorro, electro house’s rising star, is “elevating” his way to the top of the Beatport charts with his new EP Elevation, released on April 23, 2013 on Dim Mak Records, sitting in the hot seat at number one. The LA native continues to fuse progressive elements with funky electro dutch flavor to produce the signature sound of his electrifying bangers. It’s no doubt this Soundcloud sensation has gained heavy support from big names like Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, Tiesto, Kaskade, Afrojack, Chuckie, Sidney Samson, and many more. Grab your copy of the Elevation EP and let your ears get “elevated” to another level!
“Here’s an EP containing different sounds, each song sounding completely different from the last. I tired to tie together the elements of Drumstep, with House, Dutch, trance sounds, and heavy electro sounds at a slowed down tempo, creating moombahcore. I’ve included a few of my students to be part of this EP. Vocalists Pasha,Tess Marie, and producer Zoo Funktion. I’m excited to show you what I have put together!” – Deorro
When a song that mentions a “bowtie” makes you feel like some sort of fancy badass, you know that there has to be a musical mastermind (and his friends) behind it. Such is the case with Steve Aoki’s “Ooh” featuring Rob Roy off of the 2012 release of “Wonderland”.
This year, that unforgettable track has been given a fresh breath of life with remixes from Deorro, Gigi Barocco, Mustard Pimp, Lazerdisk Party Sex, and Dzeko & Torres. Each remixer brings their own taste and stylings to “Ooh” in ways that are instantly recognizable and just as infectious as the original track. Just when you thought it was perfect to begin with, these remixes highlight different aspects of the song while throwing individual flare into the mix. And the result is truly refreshing.
To top off all of the remixes, Steve released the music video for “Ooh” on March 22nd, which includes hot girls in straightjackets, a no-nonsense tough ass little kid, a sneak peek of the SoLRepublic x Aoki headphone collab, and uber creepy face painting.
So put on your bowtie, get yo’ head some screws, and join us in feeling real good about “Ooh” in all its various forms.
