Battle of the Beats: Gesaffelstein vs Kaskade – Atmosphere
Battle of the Beats is a 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 whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.
Gesaffelstein – Atmosphere
Though today heralded as half of Bromance Records, Gesaffelstein unleashed this gem before he and Brodinski wedded their values in holy creative and contractual matrimony. Released in late 2010 on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, the French producer’s “Atmosphere” invokes images of life far beyond Earth’s surface. First dubbed tech house and later electro, the track adds spacey effects to a fairly basic note pattern to take the listener on a robotic ride, virtual reality glasses optional.
Kaskade – Atmosphere
Normally with Battle of the Beats we try to keep it in the same genre, but figured we could stretch this one since Kaskade proved at least an acceptance of tech house with his Redux tour – right? While his title track “Atmosphere” is back to progressive house, if it doesn’t get dirty it nearly makes up for it by being so perfectly clean. With personal lyrics sung by the producer himself, the single has a sort of cinematic innocence that its remixes promptly sought to cover up. Only time will tell if the rest of the album follows suit.
So whose “Atmosphere” got you higher?
