CODE Picks of the Week: Adventure Club, Quadron & Ryan Hemsworth, TJR & Crookers, and More
Each Friday the CODE crew comes to you with their favorite dance tracks of the week. Listen to the cuts below and tell us what you think in the comments section.
Adventure Club: “Thunderclap” [BMG]
On the final track of their new “Calling All Heroes” EP, dupstep duo Adventure Club go into the night without a word. Donning their capes and perhaps a mask, these bass crusaders soar across a synthy and darkly energetic four and a half minute thunder-er that deals a serious blow to unimaginative and unmelodic big room beats. This is where electro should have evolved after electro. But at least now these two dastardly heroes are here to save bass music from what might have been an anonymous tailspin into the unknown.
Quadron: “Hey Love” (Ryan Hemsworth remix) [Vested In Culture/Sony]
Hemsworth turns the “promise” of “love” from a triumph into a plea, perhaps even a challenge.
TJR: “Ode to Oi” (Crookers remix) [Rising Music]
The party and the oi, hath been brought; Crookers provides another option for how to drop it.
Pleasurekraft: "Sinister Strings"
Nary a sample in sight on this re-made vision of a Euro-house classic.
Samo Sound Boy: “Your Love” (Shlomo remix) [Body High]
Layers of vocals and synth stabs wash over Shlomo’s evocative midtempo rework.
