The French producer of EDM known as DJ Pad has released his newest LP, “Let's Bounce.” This is (only) the latest in a long line of full-length releases from Pad stretching back to 2008, all of which have been published on his own 4000 Records independent music label. “Let's Bounce” is one of the giants in his repertoire, containing 30 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of more than two and one half hours. Danceable, energetic and colorful, yet having spacious moments of chillout and ambient, “Let's Bounce” is DJ Pad's offering of Melbourne-bounce songs for EDM lovers Down Under and up top.
France's DJ Pad has cited as main artistic influences artists from all over the stylistic spectrum. At different times these have included Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, ATB, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, Mike Oldfield and many more. However, when asked to mention inspirations for his “Let's Bounce” LP, Pad remarks, “This album is Melbourne Bounce and Big Room oriented, so it's difficult to cite just a few because my inspiration came from mixes on Mixcloud and YouTube.”
It is incorrect to say the entire “Let's Bounce” album is Melbourne-style, though, when in fact it is much more.
“This album contains four genres of music,” writes DJ Pad: “Melbourne bounce (one of my favorite styles of electro), big room / electro house, progressive house, and electronica. But the first two take most of the space on this very big album simply because I have so much fun producing them.”
Many of these Pad songs are uncommon additions to his enormous collection of original music – more than 700 songs and constantly growing. Tracks such as “Johnny's Guitar” and “Funk Me” will turn heads of both new listeners and longtime DJ Pad fans.
He comments on this, “Another point to stress is that in almost all tracks there are some orchestral instruments (more or less epic). It's my manner to evacuate my frustration of not really being able to produce full symphonic tracks.”
“Let's Bounce” from DJ Pad is available from hundreds of quality digital music stores online worldwide beginning 14 November 2016. Get in early, EDM fans.
