Their first single, HELL YEAH (Dave Aude Remix), really caught my attention, and had a great reaction on the dance floor. This song has the same potential, even greater if remixed properly! The remix by LuckyDeeJay seems to be the best remix I’ve heard so far.
Italian DJ pranksters, DJs From Mars, are back at it again with their latest single, “Phat Ass Drop (How To Produce A Club Track Today).”
In a world where anyone can download music production software and proclaim themselves a DJ, and so called top-talent mixers seem to rely more on formulas and computers than real creativity, the stage has been set for a little criticism. Enter DJs From Mars with “Phat Ass Drop”: a fun electrohouse club track that also serves as a tongue in cheek “how to” instructional video and a satirical critique of current state of EDM.
The track starts off with an electronic voice saying, “How to produce a club track today. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be an electronic music producer in no time.” The song continues with step-by-step instructions, demonstrating every cliché of big room club tracks (military drums, random loop, claps, crash).
The music video for the song adds a very clever visual element. Chock-full of inside jokes and references, “Phat Ass Drop” is a must-watch treat for DJs, web nerds and productions freaks.
