Dutch producer Fedde Le Grand impresses once again with his latest release on Spinnin’ Records, named RAW. This adamantly appropriately titled release, contains a plethora of raw power and dance induced bass line. From the reverberating melodic synth line, to the dry thumping kicks, this original mix is exactly what one needed to energize this holiday night. Having not released a solo original for some time now, after a long stretch of collaborations with the likes of Nicky Romero, Deniz Koyu and more, it is nice to finally see one of the best in the scene deliver a powerful and enjoyable release in the form of RAW. It is for that reason that our very own Nick Ward elected him as his number 1 artist of the year!
