Following up the release of “Girls” and a guest mix on Axis, Russian up-and-comer Duher delivers another finely-crafted big room electro blaster with “Hey.” Tailor-made for the mainstage Duher’s latest is bursting at the seems with palpable tension and an unrelenting energy. Having already received support from David Guetta, this bass heavy tune wastes no time with casual builds and instead jumps feet first into the deep end with pounding peak time aspirations.
Axis returns in its 49th installment with EEKO at the helm, delivering 30 minutes of an ADHD genre hop through progressive, electro, tech, pop and more. From Alesso’s latest “If I Lose Myself” to The Chemical Brother’s remix of “XTC,” EEKO shifts the energy at a breakneck pace throwing 18 songs into 35 minutes, throttling the mix at every turn. Duher kicks in for the second half of the show, bringing out six of his own productions including “Rokit,” “Girls” and his remix of Afrojack’s “Radioman.” Listen below, full tracklist after the break.
After resurrecting Afrojack’s 2009 release “Radioman,” Duher continued to establish himself with blistering progressive electro on the heavily supported “Rokit” and once again returns to production duties on “Girls.” Teaming up with Darren Strokes and Philip Larsen of M-3ox, the group employ AJB’s vocal stylings to create a club-friendly peak time progressive offering. When asked about the process behind the track, Duher explained how “Girls” was nearly complete before M-3ox sent him an unnamed original; “I listened to their tune and that melody, the chords were awesome! So, we combined the 2 tracks into one and that’s how we made it.”
AJB later hopped on board to lend his vocals, wrapping up the production with club-focused verses. Driven by punchy chordplay and AJB’s vocals, the track takes a startling turn when it drops, delivering a furious barrage of grizzly electro rattles and growls overtop an overly aggressive kick drum.
In 2009, before Afrojack had exploded onto the scene with his popular bleep-heavy sound, he released a calm and bouncy track dubbed “Radioman” — and it has been resting in the archives ever since. However, over three years later, Russian house producer Duher is giving the production a modernized spin. Injecting a proper dose of frenetic electro, Duher takes the peaceful tune to the next level with a twist that is more along the lines of a 2012 Afrojack offering. Fresh from Strictly Rhythm, claim the resurrected “Radioman” from Beatport today.
