Battle of the Beats: Hard Rock Sofa vs. Flux Pavilion – Starlight
Battle of the Beats is a new feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two tracks that share the same title against one another to determine which production represents the name better. With the dance music community continually growing, producers, mashup artists and DJs alike constantly create new music, often of the same name. Now we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on who’s rendition takes the proverbial cake.
Hard Rock Sofa – Starlight
The Russian producers known as Hard Rock Sofa brought fans their version of “Starlight” back in July of 2012. The progressive house production slowly builds into cascading synths with a thumping beat, incorporating different chord breaks along the way. The track which shares the same name as their free monthly radio show, gives listeners big room appeal with bouncy fills that translate to crowded dance floors.
Flux Pavilion – Starlight
Earlier this year Flux Pavilion released his Blow the Roof EP, which included his song “Starlight.” Like the majority of the UK producer’s productions this track is another bass heavy output. But on his version of “Starlight” Flux adds his own lyrics and vocals proving to fans he is not just dubstep producer, but a multifaceted musician.
