Welcome to You Might Have Missed, my weekly segment where I’ll be taking things back down memory lane and highlighting older songs that a lot of people either missed, forgot or overlooked. All of these tracks hold some type of special meaning to me, and I hope that you will find them enjoyable too. Let’s get started:
There aren’t too many artists in the game that go the route of a full length album anymore, especially an album that sounds like an album and isn’t just club tracks all the way through. One of the select few that does go down this route, while still making club-ready tracks, is Felix Cartal. His first album, Popular Music, was released on Dim Mak Records just around three years ago and one of my favorite tracks from that album was Drone. Drone falls into the latter category of club-ready tracks, but at the same time feels perfectly in-place within the album. Think hard, classic (08-09) sounding electro and a lot of bass.

Next up, we have an absolute banger of a remix from Belgian electro producers The Oddword. These guys haven’t blown up yet here in the states, but over in their home country of Belgium and throughout Europe they have built quite a reputation for themselves with their high energy, tech-influenced electro. This remix of Soda & Suds’ Heavy was released in early 2011 on the Celebrate Electro House Vol. 2 compilation and shows the sheer power of their productions. This track is just insane, it’s one of the hardest and dirtiest electro tunes I know of.

Last but not least, I will wrap things up with a newer track than most of the other ones I’ve featured in this section. This was actually a track I had missed until the other day when I was listening to LA Riots‘ Sirius XM radio show in my and he began the show with this track. Needless to say I was dancing in my car well beyond the legal limit and I’m glad I didn’t get pulled over, because it would have been hard to explain. Format B did an amazing job on this remix, I believe it’s a must for any house fan.
