Melsen – Ain’t Real (Club Mix) [Be Yourself Music]
‘Ain’t Real’ most certainly became one of the scene’s most authentic hands-up cuts of the year, and now with a new edition club mix, Be Yourself Music hot property Melsen heralds another banger clubbers will be clamouring for. The original’s piano-hammering joy and fierce diva streak had Bingo Players, Oliver Heldens, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Kiss FM’s Freejak rushing to get a piece of the action. 2022’s second edition promises a second wave of similar suitors; the beats are Low Steppa-style beefier, the keys sound meaner, the contours sleeker, and a synth breakdown shimmers like a catwalk queen caught in a camera flash.
If you’re in need of the perfect track to destroy some dancefloors and make the crowd go mental, this is it! Revolution by rising star Damian Ray is that filthy, high energy and straightforward tune that will definitely stand out.

Applying the track’s exclamation mark are Portuguese producer PEACE MAKER! and Netherlands chief Keizer Jelle, a collaboration going flat out with a caffeine-powered bassline, and administering sirens, hoovers, percussion promising frenzied side effects and lyrics telling you to always read the label. Looking for some hedonism to perk up your playlist? Fill up on this one.
A cure for the blues should you miss being smacked upside the head by techno tyranny turning the lights out, Marco V in particularly ruthless mood when medicating from one of the most famous odes to dancefloor divinity of the 90s.You’ll know the vocal instantly, but the gruff instruction, heart-in-mouth foghorns and granite kick drums of ‘Heal My Hertz’ mean there are no soft landings, just harsh lessons to quickly heed. The ecstatic synth lines of the source material breach the track’s defenses, but the bitterness doesn’t end as V’s solutions and remedies stay vengeful.
