Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes – “Here We Go”
RELEASE DATE: 2012-07-09
LABEL: Axtone Records
We’ve been wondering what they’re putting in the water (or should that be Vodka?) over in Russia these days? The last two years have seen the emergence of a number of superstar DJs & producers including these two awesome acts – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes, who are certainly leading the way alongside their compatriots and Axtone favorites, Arty, Matisse and Sadko. Swanky Tunes make their long awaited debut on Axtone with ‘Here We Go’, while for Hard Rock Sofa, this brings them to a hat trick of releases following ‘Blow Up’ and the earth shattering, ‘Quasar’. It’s fair to say these two sets of producers are somewhat prolific, whilst still managing to maintain a high barometer of quality. Between them, they’ve released on some major labels including Spinnin, Wall, Refune, Size and Musical Freedom. Sound wise, ‘Here We Go’ seems to be channeling the Big Beat era with its oversized beats and rolling acid line. Early DJ support has been strong with the likes of Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Thomas Gold, and Nicky Romero, who are all playing this stadium sized behemoth.
