Alright old and new schoolers alike, I have some super fresh beats for you today! If you know me, you know I love all things house music. When something this unique hits your desk and makes you stop to not only listen but watch the videos… you know it is something truly special. Better Lost Than Stupid comprised of the producer and DJ trio Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace, and Matthias Tanzmann have released a synth-pop and EDM masterpiece in their long-awaited debut: Wild Slide.
“For me, it’s great because I have two partners who are intelligent in making music. If one of us doesn’t know where to go, the other two do. Two guys can be the same as one, but if three sit on the machine, this is what makes it super interesting. Everybody can have a hand on the wheel.”Martin Buttrich
Already boasting impressive individual legacies within the house and techno genre, joining forces creates a whimsical, yet futuristic undertone for the three powerhouses who have been friends for decades. If you like the Chemical Brothers or Underworld, you are absolutely going to love this ISH! The BLTS tracks give a nod to their house and techno releases during their formative solo careers, while bringing a fresh spin that is deemed Pop, only because popular electronic music icons can’t seem to get enough. Everyone from Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Marco Carola, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Kolsch, Joris Voorn, Claptone, Eats Everything, Adam Beyer are singing their praises. Better Lost Than Stupid moves the trio forward in a direction everyone can get on board with. Their candy-colored pop art videos are an absolute breath of fresh air from the typical videos we are used to seeing, lending an effervescent quality that is less like eating pixy sticks, and more like pop rocks. Strawberry flavored of course. Take a look:
