“Whispers” is a softer Eurohouse delight from France’s Martin Vallée and US singer/songwriter Victor Perry @perksofbeingvic

MARTIN VALLÉE & VICTOR PERRY, “Whispers”

Following up their bouncy take on Stevie Wonder’s “Uptight” last Spring, French producer Martin Vallée and US pop/soul singer/songwriter Victor Perry have once again joined forces for “Whispers”.  With this song, they head straight into a softer Eurohouse mix that’s best suited either early on in the evening or later at night.  There’s an interesting song structure here, with a subtle introduction, that’s followed by the hook within its first minute.  This allows Victor to then wax his eloquent voice over the crux of the story, remembering the whispers of a past lover.  Queue the hook again and the song bobs its way playfully until it’s time to get closer again… “Whispers” is definitely a pleasing choice atypical of its genre and my compliments to the artists for taking some chances with a gentler shade of house music.

Infectious Italo-Arabic dance fusion: “3omri 3addit” is the latest from @DJMirkoB with #Selim

DJ MIRKO B and SELIM, “3omri 3addit”

It may be more common to hear such a mix of languages in music in Europe, but in North America it’s a rarity.  I don’t know what the song is all about, but that’s part of what makes “3omri 3addit” by Italy’s DJ Mirko B featuring vocalist Selim such an interesting record that all of you dance music lovers should check out.  Besides a classic Eurobeat, what also carries “3omri 3addit” along is the sublime acoustic guitar hook, which is just begging for reaction under the dance floor lights.  My preference here is for the extended all Arabic version over the hybrid Italian-Arabic radio edit as it flows better and seems more complete.  “3omri 3addit” is a bold release which needs some props outside of Europe, where it will probably simply go over like gangbusters.  Add it to your Eurobeat With A Twist playlist using the Spotify link above.

Eurohouse flair shines through in “Moves” by #BigFish featuring @MikeGomesmusic

BIG FISH featuring MIKE GOMES, “Moves”

If you like your tropical house with add Euro flair, then you will particularly enjoy “Moves” by Italy’s Big Fish for Tipsy Recordings.  Though the artist is new, the song does a great job of selling itself with its totally engaging melody and slick production.  It also has this vibrant vocal by Mike Gomes of American duo Xuitcasecity – not an entirely unexpected place for Mike to show up, as you’ll remember Xuitcasecity’s memorable presence last year on “Runaway” by Spirix.  “Moves” is an easy add for club DJ’s who want to encourage their audience to strut their stuff rather than simply watch the DJ at work.  Check it out at the link above.

“Paradise” by @Shane54music featuring #JennyJordan is fiery Eurohouse

SHANE 54 featuring JENNY JORDAN, “Paradise” (original and remixes)

Hungarian producer Shane 54 captures a variety of EDM styles and elements in “Paradise”, featuring an alluring vocal by Jenny Jordan.  He kicks up the Eurohouse flavour several notches with progressive big room elements that you might not usually find in a song like this, making it hit hard at times, which club DJ’s will absolutely love.  He brings it up and down at all of the right times and it’s a breezy, involving 3 and a half minutes.  A number of remixes are available too but Maddix gets a big two thumbs up for playing on the same song structure by revving it up with both progressive and retro techno vibes, highly complimentary to the original.  “Paradise” has loads of potential and with Nettwerk Records on board you can bet a lot of activity will be on deck.  Check out the original and remixes in the set above.
