EDMTunes Presents: #RisingTalent Series Vol. 7

Each and every day, we get close to 50 track submissions from artists and producers all over the globe. As a blog and a connoisseur of quality music, we make it a priority to use our social outlets as an avenue for up-and-coming producers to get their names recognized. With the abundance of tracks sent to us from every part of the world on a day-to-day basis, it’s definitely not an easy task picking out the great from the good. But with our love and passion for dance music, we will continue to strive for only the highest quality of music.

This week’s artists have been carefully selected, having undergone a thorough critique process of their work. Originality, diversity and production quality are just a few of the factors calculated into the decision of determining what tunes resonate best with the listener. Our team here at EDMTunes pride ourselves on discovering new and undiscovered talent every week. We are constantly looking for the underground gems of electronic dance music and want to support those who truly deserve the recognition. We advise our producers to continue to submit their tunes to possibly be featured on this segment of our weekly #RisingTalent series.

They started gaining momentum as producers back in 2012 and have made a conscious effort to be as versatile as possible, creating tracks of all genres from 95bpm to 140bpm. Martin Garrix’s notorious hit ‘Animals’ is given an electro funk spin that takes the Beatport champion back to the 80s!

3) Dirty Ducks
Ah yes, the Dirty Ducks, one of the hidden gems of this generation. Imagine three Italian guys from Modena united by their passion and love for electronic music. Gualdi, Ratti and Andreoli joined forces in August 2011 and started cranking out tracks 10x quicker than your town’s local ducks. With multiple record label deals and their tune “Viral” being played at TomorrowLand 2013 by Michael Calfan, these guys are well on their way to great success. This hot remix is giving melbourne man Will Sparks some excellent competition.

6) Audio Bastardz
Holland duo Audio Bastardz aim to inject an urban influence into all of their records and frequently slap on old-school hip-hop breaks when making mashups and bootlegs. Over the past three years, they have churned out some very successful tracks that have gained the support of house heavyweights Tiesto, Nicky Romero, Calvin Harris and more. Success seems to be knocking at their front door because they already have performances lined up all over Europe. This electro remix of Katy Perry’s single, “Dark Horse”, is a great club banger.

7) Ruxell

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is home to the talented bass music producer and DJ Ruxell. In the past year, he has made some big waves in the game, producing singles such as ‘KNK$TA’ and ‘Rasta Bass’. This bootleg of Zedd’s popular radio tune, ‘Stay The Night’, is one of the most impressions production renditions I’ve heard of the original. Ruxell transforms the light poppy single into a heavy dubstep track, yet somehow maintains the delicacy of the original. Bass music listeners can chalk this one up as a win.
