With an eye on the forthcoming festival season, Italian trio Daddy’s Groove have released their Spinnin’ Records follow-up to “Stellar” in a high energy collaboration with Dino. “Walking on Air” opens with a Boys Noize-esque electro line beneath breathless vocals before escalating into a massive build on the backs of soaring trance synths. While the synth lead sounds eerily similar to “Aerodynamic” by our favorite French robots, the airy vocals lend the track a decidedly distinct vibe. Already sporting support from some of the biggest names in the business, this track appears destined to make a splash this summer.
Successful teams never quit. Just ask Daddy’s Groove, the Italian trio that built a squad with Cryogenix to further prolong a production hot streak. The first collaboration between entities, “Vertigo,” was showcased for Ultra Music Festival by David Guetta, but that was merely a tease for what was to come. Next was “Tilt,” an even bulkier electro production that allowed their festival-sized horns to toot for a club mix. The squad has most recently got their hands on Sam La More’s “Adrenaline” to offer a remix with the same taste. Building around the vocal of Gary Go, Daddy’s Groove and Cryogenix extract their melodic talent and give meaning to the original’s title.
Daddy’s Groove found themselves on a production hot streak before the electronic world found heat in Miami, boasting monster productions such as “Stellar” and “Hurricane.” Their collaboration with Cryogenix, “Vertigo,” was played by David Guetta at his Ultra main stage set, and now the tandem has released its follow up. The Italian trio once again links up with Cryogenix for the sequel dubbed “Tilt,” a club mix that sports similar electronic energy, thunderous bass thumps, and unique horns. Complete with a provocative vocal sample from rapper DMX, “Tilt” offers all there is to be desired from a modern day party-starter.
One of the hottest acts in dance music at the moment goes by the name of Daddy’s Groove, the italian trio that have pumped out quality releases steadily over the past two months. Original productions alone, they sport a hefty resume of late with “Vertigo,” “Hurricane,” and of course, “Stellar.”
As of today, “Stellar” boasts an all encompassing remix package that covers electro, progressive, and old-fashioned house. On board is TV Noise, Martin Garrix, and Candyland, who each turn up the intensity on the previously melodic track with distortion and bulky bass, while renditions from A-Lab and Rob Adans direct “Stellar” towards the dance floor with more subtly and poise.
With “Stellar” and “Hurricane” still stampeding the American club scene, the Italian trio known as Daddy’s Groove sits high above a blazing hot production streak. Their next effort, a collaboration with Cryogenix, comes from David Guetta’s Jack Back imprint and boasts the label’s highly regarded big room charm, eerily familiar from the remnants of Spencer & Hill’s “1234.” Setting listeners straight with an endearing string of deep basskicks, “Vertigo” takes a turn with howls and horns to be tooted from a festival stage.
Daddy’s Groove have enjoyed an impressive past month with “Stellar” topping the charts and their remix for Ludacris and Usher’s “Rest Of My Life” hitting airwaves last week. Unlike “Stellar,” which featured graceful melodies and acoustic riffs, the latest offering from the Italian trio reveals their edgier persona. The club mix of “Hurricane” has been unleashed in cohorts with Sander van Doorn — which may explain the festival appeal. Once you think the track has begun to lighten up, it plunges into a deep grunge and hits ears like a “Hurricane.”
To no surprise, David Guetta has once again mastered the airwaves with his production for Ludacris and Usher, “Rest Of My Life.” The pop tune is no longer limited to the subtle touches of electronic energy, as Nicky Romero, Hard Rock Sofa, and Daddy’s Groove have taken their turns for the remix package. Nicky picks up where David left off, giving the track a boost behind the chords, while Hard Rock Sofa make the vocals their own around gritty synth layers. Daddy’s Groove also takes “Rest Of My Life” a step further from the radio, injecting slaps and bass kicks suited for the dance floor.
Back in November, Thomas Gold played a lengthy Essential Mix for Pete Tong that, today, still has fans attached. Out of the many exclusives, most are still talking about the debut of Thomas’ remix of OneRepublic’s “Feel Again.” The track that captured my ear, however, was the impressive offering from Daddy’s Groove, “Stellar.” After months of anticipation, “Stellar” has finally been released and is set to climb charts and sneak into DJ sets worldwide. The instrumentally intricate melodic build is one of a kind, the vocals are of the top-tier, and the progression is the bliss you’ve come to expect from the Italian trio.
The poster child of the American ‘mainstream’ dance music movement is back with a new album — or rather, an update to his last album. Nothing But The Beat 2.0 is David Guetta’s latest take on the current music landscape. Rather than call it an ‘update,’ it’s actually more of a revamp, selecting the most popular songs from last year’s release and adding in a selection of newer dance tracks. To balance out the pop influences from the likes of Akon, Sia, and Usher, Guetta brings in more dance-heavy talents, including Alesso, Daddy’s Groove, and the Nervo twins.
Daddy’s Groove aka Black Raw is back with something much different than their latest “Turn The Lights Down” and “Power 2 The People.” “Fire Like This” is Daddy’s Groove first release on Spinnin’ records, and contains all the right elements for becoming a dance floor favorite. Using mostly a variety of pulsating percussion, it’s impossible not to rage to the sounds of the heart pounding drums. “Fire Like This” is definitely a nice change up by the Italian trio and we could only hope that other producers switch up their sound as well.
