Tiesto & Tony Junior showcase lack of creativity with the disappointing track ‘Get Down’

After getting some time off from editing various tracks, which would’ve done just fine without his touch, Tiesto is back to the production desk with fellow Dutch DJ & Producer Tony Junior. But giving a listen to their upcoming track ‘Get Down’, there seems to be skepticism regarding the ‘getting back to the production desk’ bit.

The track, set to be out on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label on the 28th of December, is focused on the quickly rising ‘Bass House’ genre. Two of the pioneers of this relatively new genre are L.A. based producer & DJ Jauz & the recently revealed duo of Ephwurd comprising of Datsik and Bais Haus. Their first track together was ‘Rock The House’, released on Spinnin Records during mid-year, which got massive support from the top drawer of the EDM scene and got listening heads turning. And now, their track has come to the center of the controversy surrounding Tiesto and Tony Junior’s track.

The ‘drop’ from Tiesto & Tony Junior’s ‘Get Down’ is strikingly similar to the Jauz & Ephwurd collaboration from earlier in the year. Also, ‘Get Down’ borrows heavily from the synth style used in Steve Aoki’s ‘Boneless’, but isn’t a point of criticism as synth samples are copied on a daily basis. For what it is worth, the track is generic in nature and has no real value to it. With that in mind, Musical Freedom look to be ending their year with a track that goes against the very name of their label.

Out on the 28th of December.
