What do Tiesto, David Guetta, Hardwell, Chuckie, W&W, Bingo Players, Afrojack, Deniz Koyu, and Steve Aoki all have in common? They ALL support Toronto-bred house duo Dzeko & Torres. With a knack for synthesizing current house trends into their own tracks, Dzeko & Torres has rode the big room house wave to success. But with their new track “Hurricane,” D&T has stepped away from those grinding dutch baselines and instead offered an Alesso-esque progressive house vocal track.
As Sarah McCleod’s vocals soar over the euphoric bounce, D&T takes us right to the main stage with an undeniable pop sensibility and easily-hummed melody. While McLeod’s vocals are neither diva-esque or tender, they are raw in emotion. In fact, McLeod’s vocals are strikingly similar to that of Hayley Williams, the front woman and singer for American alternative pop punk band Paramore. Overall, the track represents another notch on D&T’s belt as they march towards their main stage future. We’re enjoying what they’ve released so far, but we’re still waiting for something a little more unique.
