As the trend of triple-threat collaborations continues to engulf 2012, three titans of Europe’s Electronic Dance Music elite unite for an overbearing clash of musical personalities. Fresh of the mark from affirmative releases for his Mixmash imprint, Laidback Luke is joined by Dutch House titan Chuckie and mainstream French forbearer Martin Solveig for the powerful collective cut ‘1234’.
Given a test-drive during Laidback Luke’s performance on the main stage at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, ‘1234’ amalgamates the best of these club minded titans into a dark and grinding endeavour of considerably high merit. While the double-Dutch influence reigns ultimately supreme amid the tracks high-end synth progressions, Solveig’s stern studio temperament makes for a solid basis to suggest that once again, three is the magic number as far as tectonic club gems are concerned.
