GPS’ Top 5 Tunes For October 2012
October came and went pretty fast, but that didn’t stop it from bombarding me with some amazing tunes. This month’s roundup has all sorts of styles. Enjoy!
Keeping many of the important elements of the original, Belgian producer Modek has taken this classic Adonis tune and given it his own little acid retouch. It’s not a complete overhaul, but it’s got just enough added energy to give it a totally different feel. As a bonus for reaching 10,000 Facebook fans, he made it a free download.
Solidisco’s “Turn Around” has the perfect disco vibe. Implementing various sounds, this song appears pretty far away from anything purely electronic. Made with analog instruments or not, this tune makes me feel like I’m in a ’70′s dance club, and I can dig that.
3. GTA – Booty Bounce [Out Soon]
This monster of a tune features simplicity at it’s best: a super catchy vocal sample, a thumpin’ kick, and the ability to turn any crowd into a riot. After month’s of being played out by the likes of A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Laidback Luke and more, GTA’s “Booty Bounce” is set to release November 8 on Jeffree’s, FO FREEEEEEE.
Known for his “making-whatever-the-hell-he-wants-and-being-good-at-it” style, Boys Noize veered away from his well-known techno sounds and made “Ich R U.” It’s a back-to-basics kind of tune, harking back to a time when dance music was simply that: music to dance to. If this doesn’t make you miss the Daft Punk and Justice days of less than a decade ago, I don’t know what would.
Of course it wouldn’t be an October chart without a fitting song for All Hallow’s Eve. Plea$ure’s extremely unique tune “Platypus” is like a musical Frankenstein, combining a spooky melody mixed with a sexy kick drum. It’s alive!
