“Don’t Stop” is fun electro-house from the welcome collaboration of #Toronto’s @Dzekomusic and Brazil’s @Liulive

DZEKO & LIU, “Don’t Stop”

As with recent club bangers like Madison Mars’ “Back The Funk”, sometimes you have to just suspend your brain for a while and let the fun, if sometimes nonsensical or goofy elements of a dance song take over.  As such, “Don’t Stop” by Toronto’s Dzeko (fresh off the worldwide success of “Jackie Chan”) in collaboration with Sao Paolo, Brazil’s Liu crunches along electro-house style in a herky-jerky manner, sputtering the only words ‘don’t stop’ throughout.  But these lads have got their groove game on fire, making “Don’t Stop” a certain mid-evening favourite for DJ’s when their dance floor is jammed.  I’m hoping Dzeko and Liu have more fun to offer up again together in the near future.

Dance classic redux: “Devotion” by @Quintinoo

QUINTINO, “Devotion”

When I write about a cover version, it usually has something unique about it to rival or surpass the original.  Young Dutch DJ/producer Quintino turns 90’s dance classic “(I Wanna Give You) Devotion” by Nomad into a slamming and manic slice of horn-laden electro house.  After already conquering Dutch dance charts with “Epic”, “Devotion” seizes the moment for international glory.  While Quintino’s rendition removes the happy hip hop flavour of the original, it cranks up the beat and will have friends of the dance floor in a blissful tizzy.  Give it a listen above (and try not to move 🙂 ) and pick it up on Beatport for now.
