Explode – Tamerax Ft. Alanna Sterling
Legendary for tearing up the DJ circuits in North America and his native Canada, plus with a plethora of chart-topping hard trance releases already under his belt, Stamina Records is proud to present to the label new talent Tamerax, as he branches further into the freeform hardcore scene. Following on from the rave smash ‘Roomshaker’ on our sell-out Freeform Family compilation, STM032’s Yin-side cut is vocal monster in the form of ‘Explode’. Featuring the awesome singing talents of Alanna Sterling, you know when a vocal anthem drops on Stamina it will be anything *but* your standard structured vocal anthem! Triplets, breakbeats, a huge kick bass combo and more set the tone for Alanna’s lovely harmonies to echo out over a rave-fest of lazer-gun synths, 303 carnage and total party vibes. Full of raw energy and perfect for those hi-octane sets that demand every ounce of Stamina squeezed from the crowd, this is one vocal cut that switches hands-in-the-air for fists pumping and feet havin’ it – music for the real ravers only!
Vampire – Tamerax
Checking out our Yang side and it’s full-on freeform flavours with a fresh approach as Tamerax continues the Stamina trend of bringing the subgenre bang-up-to-date via the awesome crossover cut ‘Vampire’. Bass pops, acid squeals, clever cuts, frenetic fills and a driving energy – not too dissimilar from his hard trance efforts – all sail towards a solo breakdown that gives the floor a much-needed breather from all of the energetic insanity! A cool vocal sample and some dubby breaks n’ bass keep the pace ticking over in the breakdown as wickedly uplifting pads take the tune into arms-in-the air territory. Enter the star-of-the-show synth riff, which offers up some good classic freeform rave vibes, but with ultra modern production values on the drop, and this is another class Yang cut that will do the damage in dirty backroom sets or over big systems on the mainstage. Another essential for your sets, expand your purple collection with some proper Stamina Records styled freeform for 2K16!
