Welcome back to Melbourne Bounce Mondays. For this week’s post, we will focus on a variety of different takes on the Melbourne Bounce sound. From rolling bass, to unique off beat bass sounds, this week’s post has it all.
LXA’s and Dambro’s “Soldier”, breathes life into the big room sound.
When big room tracks first started floating out into the dance music world, they were praised for their effectiveness live and ability to make a crowd go insane. However, the sound has quickly become recycled and tiresome. Thankfully, the duo of LXA and Dambro, both of which reside in Melbourne Australia, have created a track that takes the the best elements of big room, and combine it with “the bounce”.
A energetic breakdown and buildup soon give way to that infamous big room distorted kick, but instead a rolling bass line is added underneath to give the track a unique bouncy feel, all while coupled with a powerful lead synth. Grab the track on Beatport through Club Cartel Records!
Didn’t think Trance could be bouncified? WhoKilledMickey and Zac Waters make you think otherwise.
WhoKilledMickey and Zac Waters are two producers out of Melbourne that have been killing the game recently. Their newest collaboration, titled “Fly Away” is a genre bending tune unlike anything I have heard in months. The typical Melbourne bass is substituted for a more trance like rolling bass, all while a concoction of trance and melbourne leads play over it.
The drop gives way to a trance like breakdown of plucks reminiscent of something that would come from esteemed trance producers such as Andrew Rayel or Armin Van Buuren, before dropping back into a rolling bass and aggressive bounce leads. Do not miss out on this track, go grab it on Beatport!
Coldplay’s “Sky Full Of Stars” gets the bounce treatment from Bombs Away.
Any song that is put out by Coldplay is bound to receive a remix treatment from some artist in the Industry. In the case of “Sky Full of Stars”, Melbourne based trio Bombs Away manages to keep the integrity of the original track intact, right up until the drop, where a unique vocal synth dances over a robotic sounding rolling bass.
