Producer/DJ @theMadisonMars returns with summer barnstormer “Back The Funk”

MADISON MARS, “Back The Funk”

Summer’s almost here for those of us in North America, and I can visualize dance clubs jumping all over “Back The Funk”, the latest by rising Estonian producer/DJ Madison Mars.  Its intense production is an immediate draw to dance music lovers, and it contains all of the familiar bells and whistles (almost literally haha) to make you want to hear it many times over.  It’s kind of nonsensical overall but that becomes awfully secondary next to booming future bass and production that is primed for a party atmosphere.  At 2:54 “Back The Funk” is a bit tidy but perhaps some creative remixers with the same party-hardy bent will accentuate the proceedings.  Add “Back The Funk” to your Massive Beats playlist using the Spotify link above.

Estonia’s @theMadisonMars brings on the sunshine with vibrant “All They Wanna Be” featuring Caslin

MADISON MARS featuring CASLIN, “All They Wanna Be”

Madison Mars brings the sunshine to springtime with the vibrant “All They Wanna Be”.  The Estonian DJ,  who has already remixed songs by Martin Garrix and Pink, knows his way around a pop song, creating a contagious melody and rhythm that don’t let up.  Caslin’s chipper vocal enhances the appeal of “All They Wanna Be”, and the timing is perfect for a summery anthem like this to take roots and grow.  Remixes could help deliver the goods for clubs.  But for now “All They Wanna Be” is one of those fine singles that works it all out in under three minutes.  Listen and groove along at the link above.

Madison Mars performs at Miami Music Week on Tuesday March 20 at the FireBeatz & Friends event at FDR At Delano in South Beach.

Classically Driven: “Subtle” by @AboutPoetry


“Subtle” is an engaging pop song by the new Estonian singer who calls herself About Poetry.  You’re thrust right into its classical influences from the start which might make you think it’s Loreena McKennitt or Sarah McLachlan, and you wouldn’t be far off.  It’s got a beautiful, enchanting piano melody underneath to help keep its story interesting.  The singer herself sounds like a hybrid of Carole King and Regina Spektor, but with a bit of the accent that helps lend charm to the song.  “Subtle” will make you want to hear more from About Poetry, and it comes from her album To Console The Inconsolable, which you can sample and purchase on About Poetry’s Bandcamp site.  Play it alongside UK singer Eurielle’s EP The Incarnation.
