Releases, releases, releases! They’re everywhere! For those previously complaining about the drought in top-notch releases, you’re in luck! This month, we have been fortunate enough that the hardworking producers behind the monitors have been able to bring the magic and get inspired!
So stick with me as I take you on a little ride through some interesting releases that are worthy of your download!
1. Rebourne & Faizar – Satellites
Well aren’t these two young and melodic Fusion representatives on a roll! Rebourne and Faizar may both be young producers but that never means that they compromise on bringing listeners a next level array of shivers through their spines. Spacey atmospheres, supernatural sounds and an emotional lullaby that will have you drifting off into the forth dimension, “Satellites” is leading the way in productions of the next generation.
2. Drone – Barracuda
Straight from the studio of upcoming Italian producer Drone, this track roped me in from the very first second. Injected with a high-spirited atmosphere and a shitload of random sounds and break-downs that keep you guessing, “Barracuda” is not for the closed-minded. Just like a real-life Barracuda without the traditional risks, this song is dangerous, swift and straight for the dance-floor! (I’d really like to see a Barracuda dance…)
3. Josh & Wesz – Resurgence
Oh shit, they went there! Josh & Wesz return from a long awaited hiatus with a track that spells ‘FRESH’ (in capital letters). As per usual, rawstyle fans complain that this is big-room house and blah-di-blah-blah, but who gives a fuck? It sounds great, it works on the dance-floor and it has a playful and fun-packed energetic atmosphere. Props to Josh & Wesz, keep pumping out the fantastic tracks!
4. Kronos & Drone – Level 2
As a follow up from “Game Over,” the pizza and gondola (Kronos & Drone) from Unite Records return once again to kick some ass in the second level of this never-ending video game. Daringly enough, the guys managed to use the token viral line “fuck her right in the pussy” without making the song a complete flop. Super catchy and energetic, this song packs one hell of a punch which puts these two young producers flying high on the radar. For me, “Level 2” has shamelessly been blasting on repeat for days, so join the game and yes, “fuck her right in the pussy!”

5. Energyzed – Stay (ft. Debrah Jade)
Well what an emotional one this is, I may slightly tear up a little whilst wrapped in a blanket of feels. The token young-guns on Scantraxx have done it again and truly surprised many with this top-notch track. With heart-melting vocals from the lovely voice of Debrah Jade, this track has the amazing ability to stir up emotions but doesn’t lack that power that we all crave from time to time. One of the best ‘break-up’ songs I enjoy singing this in the shower… “WHY DON’T YOU STAY?”
6. X-Pander – Don’t Fall Asleep/Life’s A Bitch
Representing the baguettes and French toast of hardstyle, A2 Records upcoming young-gun X-Pander is back again with not one, but two killer tracks. Taking hold of the raw baton of the next generation, X-Pander has already nailed the basics and was ready to tackle the task of more incredible releases. Stormy, raw and packing a punch with a powerful atmosphere, we definitely won’t be falling asleep anytime soon!

7. Wasted Penguinz – Drop Like This
Well, well, well, it looks as though there may be some more growing pains here as the notorious Penguinz experiment with their tempo. These ‘två Svensk kanelbullar’ (two Swedish cinammon buns, which are f*cking delicious) have become quite into variation these days and after releasing “Fuck Yeah!” alongside Rebourne, there is no turning back for these new found experimentalists. For those of you who like it a bit harder, your prayers have been answered with a ‘hard edit’ and for those who love it different, then you will enjoy every minute!

8. Crypsis – Raw To The Point EP
As the title states, expect no less than raw and straight to the point. Main MF, Crypsis has always been a notorious player in the hardstyle game and he has timelessly proved that he is in it for good with his top-notch productions that have the dance-floor shaking time and time again. This time, teaming up with High Voltage to create the absolute destroyer “Death Awaits,” Crypsis has done the deed of making high-quality raw music that doesn’t lose itself too much within the ‘rawness’ (if that makes sense…)
