In 2014 Karim Mika unleashed the colossal ‘Oh Shit’ upon the world, a fiery slice of electro house that gained the attention of some of the biggest names in the genre. After this hugely successful year, the Egypt native now returns, teaming up with fellow countryman Moe Aly on the magnificent ‘Quantam’ to build on his unique sound and cement his reputation as one of the hottest names to watch in 2015. Available from August 28th, ‘Quantam’ has already turned heads with its inclusion on Hardwell’s ‘Revealed Compilation volume 6’.
Retaining the distinctive, bass driven sound that gained him the support of David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tiësto and Afrojack, Karim has delivered a funk tinged, anthemic track full of pummelling rhythms, galvanising beats and an impeccably orchestrated breakdown incorporating an automated vocal section. Mika and Aly Tie this elaborate combination together with a towering drop that will have main stages worldwide shaking and leave crowds electrified – an eclectic, groovy, electro house odyssey that draws influence from Hardwell and French house alike.

Fresh off the back of his enormous Hardwell collaboration ‘Survivors’, Dannic already has another big name group effort up his sleeve. ‘Clap’ sees him team up with rising Revealed stars Tom & Jame, who’ve already marked themselves out as ones to watch thanks to recent hits such as ‘Buddha’ and ‘Big Shot’, not to mention a massive remix of Dannic’s ‘Wait For You’ earlier in 2015.
As the name suggests, this one is all about the rhythms, from the ferocious claps that give the track its name, through to the throbbing basslines, vocoded vocal chants, and those bouncy and catchy synth riffs that cap everything off after the drop. ‘Clap’ should certainly get you grooving along, and is sure to unite a crowd when it’s played live as a result. Techy and quirky in parts, ‘Clap’ also highlights the obvious chemistry the trio have in the studio, with their passion and skill for kicking out decent music evident in the solid production and infectious arrangement. Since being premiered by Hardwell during his set at Tomorrowland, ‘Clap’ has become a firm club and festival favourite, so be sure to grab your own copy and join in with the relentless rhythms when this one hits the stores.
Revealed label mates Alpharock and JAGGS will release their collaborative track ‘Bassface’ on August 24th and catapult their respective careers into the stratosphere. With both parties making a name for themselves on the electro house circuit in their native Holland, they have steadily built a dedicated fan base and now take their sound global; recently appearing on the latest Hardwell-curated ‘Revealed presents’ compilations and having their music played to a legion of new followers at the biggest party on the planet, Ultra Miami.
An infinitely danceable, electro anthem – the song will be a staple of summer sets and mixes alike, a soundtrack for parties all over with its intense grooves and huge drop. ‘Bassface’ lives up to its name with the heaviest deep tones you’ll hear all year, but still finds space for a lively melody that will undoubtedly see arms waving, feet moving and any crowd it is played to in full dance mode. Building from a simple beat before introducing dynamic layers of sound and wild rhythms, the drop leaps out of the mix, compelling even the most tired and weary clubbers back to their feet.

Revealed continues to set itself out as a label that nurtures bright and promising young talent, a point the label’s head honchos have proven once again by welcoming Eindhoven based producer Maddix to the family, as he prepares to unleash his massive electro house anthem ‘Riptide’.
Originally picked up by Hardwell himself, and featuring on the ‘Revealed Volume 6’ compilation, ‘Riptide’ is a track that is worthy of attention. A solid and infectious mix of trancey leads, vicious acid lines, a complex and exciting production style, and not to mention those floor-destroying electro-infused drops, this one is packed with energy from start to finish.
With support from the big guns, including one or two outings on the mainstage at Tomorrowland, ‘Riptide’ is a sure-fire sign that Maddix is a shining star of the future, and if he continues to kick out tunes like this, he’ll be at the top of his game in no time.
