Battle of the Beats: Tiësto & Swanky Tunes vs. Chuckie & Junxterjack – Make Some Noise
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.
Tiësto & Swanky Tunes ft. Ben McInerney – Make Some Noise
Released on last April’s Club Life Vol. Two: Miami, Tiësto and Swanky Tunes‘ call to make some noise is in fact one of the more sedated releases on the album. Loosely defined as electro house, the tune relies heavily on the borderline-haunting vocals of New Navy’s Ben McInerney as a simple melody builds out into a rumbling crowd pleaser. Clocking in at over six minutes minutes, if the tune hasn’t been played fully out it at least has been played up: Both parties have taken the tune from Slovenia to Seoul to Ministry of Sound and back, sprinkling in plays at Stereosonic, the Staples Center and South America in for good measure.
Chuckie & Junxterjack – Make Some Noise
Not to be outdone, Chuckie and Junxterjack’s “Make Some Noise” went on to receive even more play time. Released on CR2 Records six months after Tiësto and Swanky Tune’s version, the very Dutch electro tune and its titular vocal smashed houses and festival grounds worldwide with the help of such unlikely companions as David Guetta, Fatboy Slim and Moguai. With a beat that pounds its way into the subconscious and a built-in hype man, by the time the track cuts out midway you can practically hear the crowd screaming: With positive responses from both the blogosphere and fans, the tune’s creators likely also cried out for joy.
So whose “Make Some Noise” do you loudly support?
