With weekend one of Ultra Music Festival no more than four days away, Dutch fast-risers Tim Benjamin Smulders and Jurre van Doeselaar, professionally known as Firebeatz, unleash their essential contender for the Miami season in the form of ‘Gangster’ for Spinnin’ Records.

Chugging and churning in the same manner as last year’s Beatport #2 with Schella titled ‘Dear New York’, ‘Gangster’ showcases a hard-hitting display of their signature raw Electro House throughout.

Following last year’s original release, Congorock and Stereo Massive’s collaborative single with Sean Paul, ‘Bless Di Nation,’ returns to Ultra Music for round two with a six-piece remix package headlined by Clockwork and Firebeatz.

With little of Sean Paul’s vocals intact aside from the occasional chant, Clockwork takes the lead with a thorough dose of persistent misshapen chord play. In a turn for slightly more familiar terrains of Dance music, Dutch duo Firebeatz mix acid-esque drops and euphoric synths for their overdue return to remix duties.

Under the watchful wings of homeland veterans Chocolate Puma and the guise of Spinnin Records, Dutch contenders Firebeatz have proven one of the more dexterous breakthrough acts of 2012. Back on track for the aforementioned industry powerhouse, the duo follow up Beatport #2 single ‘Dear New York’ with peak time frontrunner ‘Disque’.

With a firm ascent and familiar drop of stubborn chords and heavyset leads, the duo head on a tangent towards the sound more commonly associated with Aussie peers Knife Party. In a less original manner than that of their other releases in 2012, ‘Disque’ ticks all the right boxes in terms of relevance and energy to leave positive room for the duo to push-forward creatively in the New Year.

For all their industrious progressions, creative Dutch duo Firebeatz have certainly changed their colours on the ascent to the final leg of 2012. Armed with a new offering for Spinnin’ Records in the form of ‘Disque’, the distinguished producers return to embrace the realms of grind-happy Electro House once again.

Laced with raging high-end synth work and a diligently heavy-set chord sequence, the duo’s Knife Part-esque stylings may not hit the mark where originality is concerned, but reigns supreme on the merits of adrenaline soaked stylings and makes for a potent follow-up release to Beatport #2 ‘Dear New York‘.

With his fingers well fixed on the pulse of European talent in line with his steadily expanding Revealed Recordings imprint, Dutch floor-filler turned DJ Mag #6 Hardwell brings aboard homeland duo Firebeatz for their debut on the label with their Tomorrowland-premiered, new single ‘Here We F*cking Go’.

Following up on Beatport #2 ‘Dear New York‘ alongside Schella, the duo continue their onslaught of festival-proof Dance music with a mix of dotted, screeching synth work and churning low-end. Breathing some promising energy into the popular sub-genre with little hints of contention, ‘Here We F*cking Go’ emerges as a solid character reference to this fast-rising mark on the European Electro scene.

Never ones to rest on their laurels, rising Dutch duo Firebeatz are back at Spinnin Records alongside Rotterdam-based Schella to set the record straight with Beastie Boys-sampled ‘Dear New York’.

Blending dotted lead play and tectonic charm, Firebeatz kickstart the Fall with what might just be their best work to date, extending their already renowned affinity for New York City in the process.

Never ones to rest on their laurels, rising Dutch duo Firebeatz are back at Spinnin Records alongside Rotterdam-based Schella to set the record straight with Beastie Boys-sampled ‘Dear New York’. Already brandishing the seal of approval from Tiësto, their forthcoming sixth single release off Spinnin sees them step away from the carnevalesque grooves of ‘Just One More Time Baby‘ alongside Chocolate Puma for a mighty return to attitude-filled electro house. Blending dotted lead play and tectonic charm, Firebeatz kickstart the last leg of the Ibiza season with what might just be their best work to date, extending their already renowned affinity for New York City in the process.

‘Dear New York’ will be released September 10.

Always found trampling on the more exotic extensions of modern House music, The Netherlands’ long serving Housemasters Chocolate Puma are joined by rising homeland peers Firebeatz for ‘Just One More Time Baby’ on Spinnin Records. Having scaled the industry with a number of assorted monikers, the duos definitive ear for carnivalesque grooves pervades this quirky collaborative number throughout, while Firebeatz add a flare of melodic sample work to extend this. By far one of the most abstract club numbers to hit Spinnin of late, this double-Dutch rumble in the jungle is as indicative of the open-minded summer clubbing season as it is Holland’s affinity of experimental House protagonists.

Having already proven their worth for the likes of Size Records and Mixmash Records, Holland’s Tim Benjamin and Jurgio Ratello return to the realms of Spinnin Records for their second release of 2012 to extend on the magic that has already gained them the support of the Swedish House Mafia. Amid the eccentric lead play and heavyset chords, the maximal energy and intense resonance of Firebeatz’s relatively minimalistic sound scope extenuates the raw studio talents of this rising Dutch duo with dark yet consistently hard-hitting force. Where ‘Miniman’ already had DMC World tuned in for their Miami Buzz Chart, the track remains testament to the duos three-year plight to embrace the positive noise that has surrounded them from the outset.
