Whitedrives, a music production duo from London formed in the 90s by Martin James and Wadcutter have just released a great EP called ‘Deepest Joy’. This release has caught my attention because it offers 100% pure Electronica music that is not common to hear nowadays among the worldwide DJs. There are also two outstanding remixes by Ettica and Alan Cross who put their own personal touch to the original. The EP features 3 tracks in total, and each one comes with a distinctive rhythm which is beneficial for your music collection. It’s diverse in sound and YES I like it!
Let’s dive in with a track-by-track review:
1 – Deepest Joy (Original Mix) Keep your eyes closed while listening to this beautiful track and you will be transported into a mystical world. If I’m not wrong, you will listen clearly to a Mantra on repeat and also continuous traditional drums. All these melodic ingredients were mixed of course with Whitedrives’ Electronica music. A very relaxing experience.
2 – Deepest Joy (Ettica Remix) The second track is a remix by Ettica and obviously it was intended for the clubs. Techno fans will love how creatively a hi-hat pattern was added to the original. The spiritual vocals were not removed from this version, and they match perfectly with the upbeat kick. An interesting subtle/minimal approach.
3 – Deepest Joy (Alan Cross) Here DJ Alan Cross goes much further with this remix. I think he uses a more elaborate technique by implementing more progressive and rich sounds to the mix. My favorite from the EP!

New Esotera EP ‘Old As Time’ — Exclusive Review
Londoner electronic musician Esotera has spent many days and nights in the studio producing the upcoming ‘Old As Time’ EP and obtaining outstanding results. This work represents his perfectionism and daily dedication to music. Here, he delivers Progressive House tunes that also integrate Techno in a different direction. After mixing both styles, Esotera got the secret formula for one of the best atmospheric and deliciously dreamy EPs of the year! Can’t wait to download this great material in February via Flemcy Music. In conclusion, I will definitely use these three tracks on my next DJ set. Meanwhile, you can read my track-by-track review below.
1 – Old As Time WOW what an opener! Such a masterpiece tune that will take you on an audio journey. Lovely soft harmonies and progressive sounds made it quite enjoyable and relaxing at the same time.
2 – High MomentsThe second track is pretty original. It features eerie/dark music elements and pulsing beats on repeat. Esotera also adds male vocal snippets that sound like being taken from a speech. Certainly, a creative effort, don’t you think?
3 – LIGOHey Techno lovers, this is definitely for the clubs! I like it because it possesses dynamism and energy. The most uplifting song and probably never will go out of day as it sounds futuristic.

Billboard Chart Topping Artist DROZE Returns With Solo EP To Get You Back On The Dance Floor
Gonna Be Music singer and songwriter, DROZE released this month a brilliant EP that is sure to dominate the dance floors. With his innate talent in House music, ‘The Droze Project’ EP proves that any of the new songs can reach the Billboard Dance Charts as he did in the past with the single “Running (Out Of Time)”. His new material features a total of 4 tracks, where DROZE showcase nice vocals and catchy House beats. Important music producers such as Giuseppe D, KC Anderson, Oba Frank Lords and Michael M were also part of this project. Sincerely, this is an EP that can be on repeat forever… and you’ll never get bored!
Check out my track-by-track review below:
1 – Right Here In my opinion, this is a strong EP opener. As a fan of male vocals in dance music, I would dare to say DROZE has a unique soulful style and a big voice that will make your jaw drop. This track is a clear example of that, and I like it.
2 – No Time The second track starts off with a notable hi-hat pattern. Here the rhythm sounds dark and simple but it matches perfectly with the serious lyrics of the song. He takes an interesting direction on this track, I think it’s different than the other three tracks, which are more danceable.
3 – Tell Me After listening to this tune a couple of times, now I understand why it’s my favorite track on this EP. The main reason: IT’S HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. His voice sounds clear, and there’s a wonderful blend of styles from soulful to upbeat.
4 – Carry On The DROZE Project EP ends with fantastically fun music! It features the Gonna Be All-Stars and somehow it reminds me of the Classic House era of the 90s. Get ready to jump, sing and shake your booty, this song could be the next hit in 2017. 🙂

In Review: Sunterra – Reborn (Industrial Metal)
Sunterra is an Industrial Metal band from Austria. According to their Facebook fan page, their music is influenced by mystic vibes of the interaction between Earth and Sun. So, today I wanted to try something different and decided to give a try to their new album ‘Reborn’. I must confess, this was the first time I ever heard of them, and what I liked from the beginning was the perfect amount of energy they put in each track. We should be open to everything, and I’m sure most of you have varied music tastes. It’s probably that you will end up loving this album if you are a fan of Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein or Metallica. Some tracks are especially electronic music oriented, while others are 100% hard rock tunes.
Let’s dive in with a track-by-track review:
1 – Regin Supreme The intro features a nice guitar piece mixed with Electronica synths, adding color to the track, which is, of course, dark music. Additionally, I like the singing female voice provided by Lilly in the background because it gives certain balance to the growl of Carlos, who is the main vocalist of the band.
2 – Shadow In The Dark The track starts as a beautiful short ballad with a nice piano melody. YES! that’s correct a ballad… However, as the song is progressing you’ll clearly hear again heavy metal riffs and growls. Very interesting in my opinion!
3 – Lord of Lies Now, I see myself nodding my head up and down with the third track. I think the lyrics here are deep and meaningful. And I think there’s nothing wrong to question your faith.
4 – This Is W.A.R. Get ready to jump! Here’s my favorite track on this album! Sunterra goes Industrial Techno with a unique combination of synths, bass, metal drums and guitars. Besides that, it’s catchy and melodic. It talks about the current times of war and the fear caused by its consequences.
5 – Ministry of Thoughts A song that creates a dark atmosphere with its heavy chugging guitar riffs. This is the kind of masterful heavyrock music that keeps the genre alive in my opinion.
6 – Shut Up!!! There’s a sense of mystery on the last track of the ‘Reborn’ album. Somehow, I found a lot of creativity in the process of making this tune + a contagious chorus that you can’t get out of your mind.
