As one of the Netherlands’ emerging DJs, Mike McFly brings out a unique style in the tech-house scene. According to Beatport, his style emphasizes free use of “sub-rumbling drumlines, heavy rolling basses, and quirky leads”. Along the way, he has partnered with artists such as Claude VonStroke, Afrojack, Green Velvet, and Groove Armada.
Finally on April 26, Mike McFly released a two-track EP titled FreakBoiii/Gally Galore with German record label This Ain’t Bristol. Additionally, the EP is a personal tribute to Mike McFly’s late father, Renzo, who would always supported his career.
FreakBoiii, Gally Galore, & Choo Choo
In detail, “FreakBoiii” provides a perfect balance between drum and bass with distinctive cymbal sounds. Certainly, it is a track that has the power to heighten the party atmosphere and produce upbeat emotions. Likewise with “Gally Galore”, this track supplied static-like vocals alongside melodic synths, horns, and rhythm percussion. Surely, this track is perfect for listeners when they are cruising down a coastal highway in a sports car.
Furthermore, Mike McFly also added in a bonus track as a separate, yet free download called, “Choo Choo”. Specifically, “Choo Choo” incorporates a fusion of Tech House with rolling bass-lines that creates a catchy tune. To be sure, this track’s an ideal choice for any festive environment, whether a house party or music festival.
