The Melbourne bounce scene (or Melbourne house as it is also know known) has continued to grow. As of late, Will Sparks has remixed the Robin Thicke's massive Top 40 smash "Blurred Lines" in a Melbourne bounce style, Laidback Luke has done remixes in the same vein, TJR's Beatport #1 "What's Up Suckaz" embodies the sound just as his last #1 "Ode To Oi" did, too. MAKJ is playing edits with it, and Reece Low has got a Melbourne-flavored single coming on Dim Mak. This has truly been a long time coming.
You might be asking, though: "what the hell is a Melbourne bounce?" A progression from the uptempo, horn-infused Dutch house style, Melbourne bounce (which also at times fuses elements of acid house and psytrance) is a descendant of the electro house umbrella with inspiring party-hardy jams, raucous horns, and goofy, fun-loving sensibilities. The squelching horns will melt your mind on at a big festival stage or on a huge system. Don't be fooled by the style's sometimes comical nature, as there's no joke about this music. Since we know you'll be hearing more about this scene in the coming months, we decided to put you on to 10 Melbourne bounce DJs you need to know.Click to start the list
