Dyro – Set Me Free EP

So the new Dyro EP came out and I’m completely  stoked about it. Every track is solid and it even includes a collab with one of my favDyro Set Me Free EPorite rap groups Dope D.O.D. Here’s my thoughts on each track.

The title track is some solid Electro House with some amazing sound design and solid vocal work. The track has a little bit of a rock in roll feel along with some great Dub style synth design.

The second track Surrenda features Le Prince is a little bit of a faster Drumstep style track with a futuristic sound. It’s definitely a darker sound than the title track.

Predator is Dyro’s collab with Dope D.O.D. is definitely my favorite track on the EP. It’s very dark lyrics and heavy Dub style bass are a perfect fit for each other. I would absolutely love an entire collab album.

Artifact is a Dub-Electro track with a really strong heavy kick throughout driving the track on a sonic journey. This track has that larger than life sound that I can’t wait to play through a large club system.

My Top 5 Favorite MitiS Tracks

With MitiS coming to Detroit Jan 16th, 2016 for The Rapture put on by Headliners Ent. I thought I would put a list of my 5 favorite MitiS tracks.  I can’t wait to spin at this show.  mitis

 

  1. Heavyweight – Butterknife(MitiS Remix)

 

This track falls at the bottom of the top 5 mainly because of it being a remix, but it’s actually one of my favorite tracks that he’s done. From the chopped up vocals to the ebb and flow of mellow and heavy, this track has some of my favorite builds in all EDM.

 

 

  1. MitiS – Born Ft Collin McLoughlin(Vocal Mix)

 

MitiS has some of the best vocals in EDM in my opinion and this is a shining example of that. The instrumental on this track plays with your emotions complementing the vocals perfectly.

 

 

  1. MitiS – Change Will Come(Instrumental Mix)

 

I’m not usually a Drum and Bass guy, but I love this track, but this track really pops out to me. Rather than being super heavy, it’s very light and airy to me.

 

 

  1. MitiS – Living Color(Original Mix)

 

I just love this track from start to finish. From the light plucky synth at the beginning to the minimal vocals laced throughout it has great builds and once the drop at the end hits it might not be the heaviest but it’s absolutely perfect for the track.

 

 

  1. MitiS – Oasis Ft CryWolf(Vocal Mix)

 

This Dubstep track isn’t your typical heavy ass balls to the wall bass heavy track, but again he has amazing vocals topped with amazing synth work. The build into the drop flows so smooth that I can fit it into any mix whether Dubstep or Trap. Then the light beautiful piano work at the beginning of the re-build isn’t something you hear in EDM all that much anymore and separates MitiS from most producers.
