Dutch hardcore legend Paul Elstak and Psycho Boys Club teamed up for their single “Bull Kick”, the newest release from Yellow Claw’s Barong Family imprint. “Bull Kick” should come with a warning label: not for the faint of heart. The track is a unique fusion of hardcore, bass, psytrance, and ravey techno, evoking memories of early rave days in clandestine underground warehouses. Elstak and Psycho Boys Club deliver rapid-fire kickdrums and distorted synths, making the track as hard-hitting as it can possibly be. “Bull Kick” follows Psycho Boys Club duo’s earlier “Over You,” released on Spinnin’ Records Asia, Barong Family’s debut EP “Chaos Underground,” as well as Paul Elstak’s singles, such as “Beyond Your Control” and “Soldaat”.

In the hardcore scene, Paul Elstak needs no introduction. His career began in 1987 and has led to a long resume of both commercial and underground hits; he launched his label Rotterdam Records in 1992 and released radio-friendly singles “Life Is Like A Dance,” “Luv U More,” “Don’t Leave Me Alone,” “The Promised Land”, “Rave On” and “Rainbow In The Sky,” all of which made the Dutch Top 40 in the 1990s. The next decade found Elstak pivoting to a harder style of music as he evolved as a producer. In 2010, he produced the title track for the movie “New Kids Turbo,” which led to him winning a Rembrandt Award for Best Title Song for the Gold-certified track in 2011. More recently, in 2017, Elstak released hits “Kind Van De Duivel” (“Child of the Devil”) and “Engeltje” (“Little Angel”) with rapper Jebroer and Dr. Phunk, both of which went collectively 5x Platinum in The Netherlands and Gold in Belgium.
DJs and producers Juyen Sebulba and Stoltenhoff teamed up for their Psycho Boys Club project in 2019, complementing their own successful careers as solo artists. Juyen previously released on Musical Freedom, Mad Decent, and Mixmash, while Stoltenhoff collaborated with Tiësto on “Lose Control,” SLANDER on “We Out” and remixed Yellow Claw. Together as Psycho Boys Club, their hard-hitting style has found a home on Barong Family, where they’ve continued to build their repertoire with a string of well-received releases.

EDM Masterpiece “In My Zone” Will Get Stuck In Your Head!
Even though it’s been over 9 months since Tungevaag released this EDM masterpiece, “In My Zone” is still in heavy rotation on both playlists and DJ sets. Definitely, the vocals find a way to hit you right in the ear and the heart.
Believe it or not, the Norwegian producer worked on this tune for almost 6 months. Apparently, he applies the philosophy of working hard in silence and letting the results speak for themselves.
Furthermore, he describes the culmination of the whole project as a dream that came true.
Above all, what caught my attention is certainly the cinematic music video directed by Henry Lipatov. Many fans are comparing the visuals to the popular Fast & Furious film, and they’re probably correct.
On the other hand, if you’re driving a vehicle or motorcycle, this is the ideal track to feeling all the adrenaline running through your veins. Just make sure you’re wearing your seatbelt or helmet properly.
In short, there’s also something catchy about “In My Zone” that quickly gets stuck in your head. His formula is no longer a secret, and I think perseverance and passion were the main elements to obtain such an amazing song.

OnenO And Anastasia Elliot Unveil An Orchestral EDM Sound!
Even if the rhythm is hard to classify in the end, it’s a call to party hard, throw up your hands and stomp your feet. Sonically speaking, it features an artful aesthetic you can feel thanks to the shimmering violins and the piano at the intro and subsequently coming right before the bass drop.
Of course, the whole output wouldn’t be the same without Anastasia’s extraordinary mezzo-soprano range. A very unusual combination between electronic textures and operatic nuances that somehow works!
Stream “The Shattering” via Spotify below.
When circumstances are stormy and your world is falling apart, all you need is motivational music. The verses in “The Shattering” truly represent the encouragement to stop suffering and finally move forward.
Indeed, that’s exactly the purpose of such an upbeat song.
Moreover, the lyrics are based on the Japanese art from Kintsugi. Just as this practice leads you to repair broken pottery, in the same way, this symbolizes that you can find potential after tough times.
Well, this is the hidden message behind a unique composition. Hopefully, it’s the first of many future collaborations.
