I n my opinion, what makes future house such a great genre of EDM is the unique bouncy sound to every drop that makes me want to get up and dance. This week we’ve picked four great tracks that capture this energy and give you a reason to lose yourself on the dance floor.
Up first is Chris Lake & Anna Lunoe’s brand new track, ‘Stomper’. I first discovered Chris Lake when I heard his remix of SNBRN’s ‘California,’ which absolutely blew me away and continues to be one of my favorite songs to date. ‘Stomper’ is simple and super bouncy— another high energy dance track in Chris Lake’s repertoire. I really like the way that the mystical, wonder woman vocals of Anna Lunoe complement the multilayered build up to the drop.
Next is NuKid’s flip of ‘Blue Suede’ by Vince Staples. The music NuKid produces is a distinct g-house/future house mix, but what caught my attention about his track ‘Blue Suede’ is the pulsating bass line vibes. There’s a massive tempo change in the track which starts with fast rap and transitions to future house. I love the contrast between the low male vocals and the high pitched synths right before the drop. NuKid is definitely someone to keep an eye on.
Third this week is ‘Feeling It’ by Gianni Blu. I was surprised to see this track tagged with house on SoundCloud because most of Gianni Blu’s music is trap, but after giving it a listen I’m definitely not upset with his decision to experiment in future house. This track has a fluid, bouncy melody accompanied with suave male vocals and catchy lyrics like “Tell me ’bout yourself” that are bound to pull you onto the dance floor.
Lastly, we’ve got ‘Choppers’ by FreeFall. The rhythmic, powerful beat of this track definitely places it on the bass heavy side of future house, which is interesting because it’s been supported by both Don Diablo and Oliver Heldens. What I really like about ‘Choppers’ is the complementary ping of the triangle and the sinister synth slide right before the raw, garage vibes of the drop.
