The Partysquad and Punish – Time To Rave
Dutch DJ and production duo The Partysquad have been in the dance music circuit since the early 2000s, but recent releases with artists such as Major Lazer, Afrojack and rapper M.I.A. helped catapult them into stardom within the American dance music arena. Their latest release is a collaboration with fellow Dutch producer Punish, and it brings some serious heat. “Time To Rave” is a return to the hardcore party anthems of several years ago, combining stabbing electro house synths with intense kick drums to create a massive big room “go-hard-or-go-home” vibe. There’s a little bit of trap thrown in, too, and it serves as a refreshing and unexpected twist to a genre that has somewhat fallen out of fashion lately. Whether or not you’re a fan of club ragers, this one is definitely worth giving a listen to.
