It’s a brand new form of house music taking the dance world by storm. It’s similarities mirror that of Dutch house, however this time the evolution of EDM has taken a trip down under.
Welcome to ‘Melbourne Bounce’.
In the past, we’ve highlighted some of the pioneers of this up and coming Australian based genre. Artists like Bombs Away, Will Sparks, J-Trick and Deorro have paved the arduous path into EDM relativity for new up and comers like these next two trailblazers to change the game up with their exotic and intriguing style of music. It’s official: The United States has finally succumb to the lively Aussie spirit – evident by their energetic, hyper-sexual taste in all things bouncy (music and bust). Characterized by a (chromatically tuned) ticking intro, a whistling break, and the ever identifiable “drag-rap” vocoder on vocals, bounce music has transformed into something quite stimulating for both the mind and body.
Although that sort of depends on your age and social status (i.e. Do you like to get down?).
SCNDL and Timmy Trumpet are two artists relatively unexplored on this side of the pond. Does that idiom apply if we’re not going to Europe? Either way, that’s a big pond. Why do people use such a misleading phrase?
Anyways, these next two artists have spawned somewhat of an anomaly in the current realm of EDM. By merging the aforementioned qualities of a quintessential bounce (specifically Melbourne) tune with the sheer elegance and allure manifested in Timmy’s trumpet, these two new Monstercat signees have created an utterly breathtaking composition with upper management written all over it. It’s not too often two completely disassociated elements of music can so eloquently coexist.
Hats off, gents. Hats off.
