CAZZETTE burst onto the scene out of the same place that Avicii came from earlier this summer, and since we heard their dubby-steppy “Save The World” bootleg, we’ve had a feeling we’d be seeing and hearing more of them. We got to meet the guys and see them spin live at our shindig in Trenton with NV Concepts and MASS EDMC, and we’re pleased to say that they certainly deliver live. Their set — much like the tracks they’ve produced thus far — was eclectic, and featured a whole lot of jumping and even… cellphones? Head past the jump for the five tracks you need to know from CAZZETTE’s set and add a little spice to your iTunes.
1. Deniz Koyu – Hydra (Original Mix)
The duo played “Hydra” relatively early on in the set, and it is on the more housey end of things that they played. Of course, it has smooth synth progressions and a great melody, so there’s not much not to love.
“You blocked me on Facebook… and now you’re going to die.” Yes, “Internet Friends” may not be the friendliest song to come out of CZT’s set, but we have some weird feeling that it’s going to catch on. There’s a sequence in the middle that features the standard iPhone ringtone and Alex and Sebastian actually did a bit with their cellphones during the mix (see above). It seemed weird live, but since listening to the track a few more times, there’s something head-bobbing-friendly about it. Avicii even included it in his latest Le7els podcast.
“Killmode” is CAZZETTE’s next upcoming single, and a version of it was even played on Swedish House Mafia’s BBC Radio 1 takeover. They closed with the same “Right Here Right Now” bootleg played on the air, and the New Jersey crowd was eating up every single bit of the electro madness. We don’t know when it’ll be released, but our guess would be sooner rather than later.
CAZZETTE had the pleasure of opening for Dada Life at LAVO NY a little while back, and their musical styles just work harmoniously together. “Happy Violence” uses the same ultra hard electro synths as CAZZETTE’s own productions, and we almost thought it was a new track from them until it we could ID it.
We heard it from Sebastian and Alex themselves that a banging remix of “Sending My Love” played during the set was actually set to be an official remix. Luckily for us, it was just posted to their SoundCloud, so you can listen for yourselves.
