Most of our Belgian followers who see the post title and the CD cover on top will immediately know what I’ll be talking about now, but for those who don’t (I’m surprised you found your way to this blog in that case) and our not-Belgian friends here is a small introduction to what Switch in general and this compilation is all about!
Switch is basically a radio-show on Studio Brussel, every week they feature the latest dance tracks and the most exclusive dj-sets (there for it was a big honour when I got to play my dj set there 3 months ago as promotion for the blog). Every now and then they compile all the best and most popular tracks of the radio-show and bring out a compilation album such as this Switch 16.
Switch 16 is number 16 (stating the obvious) in the compilation series and brings a hot selection of electro, house, techno, minimal, dubstep, dnb tracks all on two CD’s. In the end you can’t expect to discover really new tracks, because most tracks on the compilation have passed the dancefloor more then once the last weeks, months. With this compilation Studio Brussel still tries to reach a big audience that aren’t diehards who search the blogs for the latest tracks as we do. But if you want what’s hot on the dancefloor or behind the dj booth and you aren’t a Beatport, Juno, iTunes wizard and you still prefer a solid CD above a lose mp3 on your harddrive then this compilation is the way to go!
So, let me point out some of my favourite tracks on this double CD. The new Goose single is called “Words” and was quickly the new hot shot track on Studio Brussel. Goose says it’s their most experimental track and the rest of the album will sound more “Goose” … bring it on! Gonzales – I Am Europe (Djedjotronic Remix) the last few weeks I’ve been reading nothing but small snippets of lyrics from this track on twitter and facebook and that’s because they are so damn brilliant! Djedjotronic remixed this one for the massive dancefloors in his own unique style, he’s probably the most interesting producer out there at the moment. Superstar is the new Aeroplane single. I posted the Krayz remix some time ago, which is a bit better the original, but by highlighting this track I just want to say that the Aeroplane album is brilliant! Mumbai Science – Ancova, don’t think this track still needs much explaining? Einmal In Der Woche Schreien, not the easiest title if you’re not German and same goes for the lyrics but damn what a crazy track yet again from Siriusmo. Also two dubstep tracks featured: the very popular Doctor P – Sweet Shop and Borgore – Nympho , heavy dubstep tracks, perfect for going completely beserk!
