Currently there are so many big tracks in Holland so I've chosen to mention two. First one Chasin by Sander Van Doorn which you hear on almost every Dutch radio station and in some commercials as well.
The second one is The Night Out by Martin Solveig. A great track with some nice vocals which you also hear a lot on Dutch radio stations.
Both great electronic dance tracks but also perfect for radio which is very important nowadays. I think both of the tracks are big because of the melody and vocals especially on The Night Out.
International DJ Scene:
Last month Holland saw the likes of Axwell, Derrick May, Todd Terry, Dave Clark, Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Steve Aoki and DJ Rae.
The last big thing was the HouseQuake Festival, a small festival with only one performer, Roog and Erick E aka HouseQuake who you probably know from their appearances on Sensation years ago or from Strictly Rhythm releases. HouseQuake did a ten hour set, first solo and later on together which made the crowd go crazy.
Fusion dance festival took place May 19th where artists like Audiobullies, Roog, Shermanology, Michael Mendoza and Gregor Salto will be playing on the main stage.
First I want to let you guys know about the new Tara McDonald video for her first solo single Give Me More. The track was released last month but now it's finally online including this massively creative video. Give Me More is the first single from Tara's debut solo albums which will be released in September on Mercury/Universal Records.
Secondly I want to update you guys on one of my DJs, Jay Mocio. If you'll be in Ibiza this summer make sure not to miss his gig at the famous beach club Blue Marlin. Jay Mocio will be playing there on June 15th.
Also, don't forget to check Sander Van Doorn's new single featuring Mayaeni - Nothing Inside. An amazing song with such beautiful vocals of Mayaeni that deserves mentioning.
Finally, I want to talk about the Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoneick ft. Skin - If This Ain't Love Part 2 (The Remixes). There are no words to describe the original track. DJs came up with some very nice remixes. Released on Subliminal Records, it includes remixes by Denis The Menace, DJ DLG, Joe T Vannelli, Antranig, Baggi Begovic and Patrick M.
