Review: Avicii – True

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Electronic, Pop, Review

Avicii
True (Universal Music)

Breakdown: He’s had smash hit singles such as Seek Bromance, Collide and, of course, Levels but True sees Swedish DJ Avicii release his debut studio album. The album was preceded by the number one smash Wake Me Up which hit number one for weeks on the South African iTunes charts as well as charts all around the world and the new single You Make Me.

Tracks We Didn’t Skip: I liked all of them! There are a few gems on this record.

What I Liked: Avicii isn’t afraid to take risks! Besides for Wake Me Up, Avicii has another country smasher on the album titled Hey Brother as well as a mixture of folk all mixed with EDM of course. I also like that Avicii didn’t go the route David Guetta went and has some randoms on the album. Each track brings something special and the album seems to be put together carefully – and just the way a work of art should be.

What I Didn’t Like: While his experimentation on debut single Wake Me Up and Hey Brother produces some incredible music that really has changed the face of music, he has tracks like Dear Boy which are pretty simple. This doesn’t mean it’s a bad song, it just means the listener is waiting for that shock factor which doesn’t arrive. Also, the album only has ten tracks so if you are a fan of Avicii, but the album off iTunes as it has two bonus tracks!

Best Track: Wake Me Up is amazeballs, obviously. New single You Make Me and Hey Brother are party starters as well.

Rating: 4.5/5

paris Hilton – Good Time (Feat. Lil Wayne)

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Pop

Our favorite heiress has finally decided to start promoting her advertised and anticipated new album after the success with the debut “Paris“. Paris Hilton was singed to Lil Wayne’s label Cash Money earlier this year and they two have teamed up for her lead single titled Good Time. The track is, as expected, an electronic banger. The lyrics are, however, super super cheesy, which I guess it what I should expect from Paris. The chorus is insanely awesome though and produced incredibly by DJ Afrojack. Otherwise, the song is quite horrendous.

Favourite lyric: All she know is suck fuck.

GOODLUCK – Trickery

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Dubstep, Electronic, Jazz, Pop, South African

It’s finally here!! I’ve been waiting for a new single from my favourite local group GOODLUCK for a while, and while they prepare the release of their upcoming album Creatures of the Night, the group have premiered their debut single off the record – a track called Trickery. The track is something completely different from the group and completely mindfucked me. The track moves away from their jazz inspired music, although there are still elements there, and explore the dance and dubstep more than we’ve ever heard before. The track is insanely catchy and just proved that GOODLUCK can do it all. This is a complete smash!

Favourite lyric: How have I been tricked? How have I been deceived? How have I been fooled by your trickery?

Zedd – Stay The Night (Feat. Hayley Williams)

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Electronic, Pop

Zedd is the latest DJ making waves in the music industry. He has produced some tracks for Lady Gaga’s upcoming ARTPOP album and his debut single Clarity stormed up charts around the world. As he prepares his album of the same name’s rerelease later this month, he has picked Stay The Night featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams as the lead single. The track has a banging beat and Hayley proves she can do both rock and dance tracks effortlessly. I see this becoming a huge banger on radios everywhere.

Favourite lyric: I know that we are upside down so hold your tongue and hear me out.

Alex Gaudino – Missing You (Feat. Nicole Scherzinger)

Posted By elbroide in Dance

Italian DJ has had some awesome hits throughout his career and he has chosen The X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger to collaborate with him on his new single Missing You. The track definitely has his trademark power sound and although Nicole’s vocals are flawless, this track falls flat for me. There’s nothing that stands out and pretty much remains at the same level from start to finish. I’ve been waiting for new music from Nicole Scherzinger and unfortunately, this just disappoints.

Favourite Lyric: Like the sand needs the beach, I need you next to me.

Avicii – You Make Me

Posted By elbroide in Dance, House, Pop

His single Wake Me Up is one of the most played songs on the planet at the moment, but as he prepares the release of his debut studio album True, Swedish producer Avicii has picked You Make Me as his official 2nd single. The track features vocals by Salem Al Fakir, who also wrote the track. The track seems to take things back to the dance route we were so used to from the superstar producer. The track is good, but just doesn’t compare with the brilliance that was Wake Me Up. I’m really excited to see what else Avicii has up his sleeve with this album, which is on shelves mid September.

Favourite Lyric: All my life I’ve been waiting for someone like you.

Ellie Goulding – Midas Touch (Feat. Burns)

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Electronic, Pop

Ellie Goulding has been smashing the charts throughout the UK and the world recently. She released her new album Halcyon Days on Monday and has picket her collaboration with Burns titled ‘Midas Touch’ as the next single. The song is a re-worked version from the original track by American R&B and electro-funk group Midnight Star with the same name included on their album “Headlines“, released in 1986. I’m not totally convinced with this one. Sure, her vocals smash, but the track is a bit too boring for me. Which is a pity because Halcyon Days has some incredible tracks on it.

Favourite Lyric: You can count on me, cuz I’m here to stay.

Cher – Woman’s World

Posted By elbroide in Dance, House, Pop

Sorry friends, this isn’t a joke. After a 12 year absence from the charts Cher is back with a brand new single titled Woman’s World. The single is from her upcoming twenty sixth studio album “Closer to the Truth” that’s scheduled for release on digital retailers on September 24. The deep house inspired pop track sees Cher being a feminist even in her music. The track, honestly, is way too cheesy. The 67 year old sings about singing at clubs and partying and to be fair, this isn’t age appropriate. Hopefully, although I doubt it, Cher will release something a bit more her age as the next single. Oh, and we don’t need to mention the horrible newspaper weave in the video, right? Good.

Favourite Lyric: I lose myself in the beat of the drum

Krewella – Live For The Night

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Dubstep, Electronic, Pop

American electronic group Krewella have really caught my attention recently, and their new single Live For The Night has been pumping in my car for a while now. The track is one you can see dominating dance charts around the world, and the groups ability to mix pop and hardcore electronic music is incredible. The chorus is incredibly catchy and the verses will have you singing along for a long time. Definitely one of our favoutite dance tracks this year. The group releases their album Get Wet on September 24th – and we’re counting down the days!

Favourite Lyric: My head is in the clouds, you can say that I’m a dreamer, but I bang it super loud, turn that bitch into a screamer.

Locnville – Closer (Feat. Lakota Silva)

Posted By elbroide in Dance, Electronic, Pop

Twins Andrew and Brian Chaplin have officially made their comeback! After their debut album they seemed to have lost their way, but the Locnville boys (now known as LCNVL) have found their new sound. They have just relesed their Faster Longer Mixtape and released Closer as the official second single. The track features Lakota Silva on the track and really brings a new dimension that we havent heard from Locnville before. The chorus seems really messy on first listen but that seems to go away in time. This isn’t the best song on their new mixtape, yet still a banging tune, which proves that LCNVL still have a lot of tricks up their sleeves! LCNVL are officially back!

Favourite Lyric: Sometimes they try to shoot me down, so load another round.
