Euan Cross

I know I’ve featured Euan Cross, but I can’t seem to find an old article on him (was from before we lost all our old articles when the website crashed). So, that means it’s been well over 6 months since his last feature and with his latest Progressive House tracks, it’s time to change that. Euan Cross is from Aberdeen, Britain and spends some time in Scotland as well. Show Me Boom! takes samples from Boom! by Ivan Gough vs. Stevie Mink and Steve Bleas; plus, Show Me Love by Steve Angello and Laidback Luke featuring Robin S. Once Robin S’s vocals enter into the mashup, it really gets me pumped (granted Boom! is bumping that bass and that also gets ya going) but I like the attempt to bring these two samples together.

Everyone seems to be addicted to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ new album, and particularly his hit single, Thrift Shop. I like seeing mashup artists, like Euan Cross, play with this song in their bootlegs. It’s a fun song and promotes a different message than you’re used to hearing by essentially every Hip Hop artist out there. I Love Thrift Shoppin’ takes the obvious sample mentioned previously, plus I Love It as remixed by Sick Individuals – originally created by Icona Pop. Now that I’ve seen Icona Pop live in concert, I have a new appreciation for their music – even though their set was relatively brief. They rocked the house with I Love It!

Finally, the third mashup here is more than 2 weeks old, but the other two are still within 48 hours, so I can still consider this article ‘brand new’ (two-thirds brand new that is). A Night of Happiness has Steve Aoki’s remix of Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness which makes for a great song no matter what, plus A Night In – the EDC Orlando 2012 Anthem by R3hab. I think three examples of Euan Cross will be enough to tide you over for a while. Follow him on Facebook so you can get updates from him on his latest releases.
