H appy July! This week’s Future House Friday is here with a wide range of future house songs to hype up America’s 239th birthday. Whatever your plans may be, cheers to beautiful weather and an exciting holiday weekend!
Up first is Don Diablo’s new single, ‘On My Mind.’ I like how this track is happy and high-energy right from the start. ‘On My Mind’ has Don Diablo’s signature future house sound (like in ‘Never Let You Go’ and ‘Universe’), but the soulful male vocals and melodic horns create a softer or lighter feel to this track relative to his others.
Next is the AC Slater & Chris Lorenzo’s track ‘Fly Kicks.’ What I really like about this track is that the short vocal sample stays constant across the entire track, emphasizing the future house beat. When AC Slater & Chris Lorenzo “bring the beat back”, you can hear the wub wubs that are typical of AC Slater’s heavier future house style.
Lastly is DJ Joey Rumble’s original track ‘Chaos.’ Originally from Amsterdam, I was impressed to find out that Rumble is only 17 years old. The drums and cymbals at the start of ‘Chaos’ create a tribal vibe that quickly caught my attention, and I like Joey Rumble adds the sound of a shotgun firing right before the groovy future house drop.
