Originally from a small town in Mexico, TLUXX is an EDM DJ/Producer currently based out of Los Angeles. When in 2012, a health scare forced him to give up his dream of a career in major league baseball, he turned towards music in his recovery time, and has shared the stage with performers such as Headhunterz, Zomboy, CandyLand, Cry Wolf, Riggi & Piros, MAKO, Party Favor and many more. TLUXX represented New Mexico on the Dunes stage at the Sun City Music Festival, in El Paso, Texas and had residencies in Albuquerque’s Lotus and Gravity nightclubs before moving to Los Angeles to continue his musical education at the well know ICON production school. TLUXX also founded and performs in the annual Play It Forward charity event, which supports a homeless teen shelter.
The 28th of August TLUXX drops off a brand new single, entitled “Round and Round” ft. Alina Reane, that’s bound to satisfy EDM die-hards, complete with its steady-paced progressive chord arrangements and a lengthy, galvanizing build. So strap yourself in for a fusillade of stadium chiseled synths, ram-raiding kick drums and colossal basses bottled up into a tirade of enraptured progressive house. The track, as expected, purveys all of that.
In the midst of the electrifying chasm, peppered with gargantuan drops, TLUXX instills a tamed dynamic piano to supply the background for Alina Reane’s vocal installment and formidable hooks. This is a trademark cut that excitingly will provide an arena soundtrack throughout this year and beyond, with righteous reason.
Fat synths, kick-ass bass lines and drums, a successful metamorphosis of progressive house and the all too stunning vocals makes “Round and Round” ft. Alina Reane another supporting pillar of this electronic genre.
‘Progression’ is obviously key in progressive house, so TLUXX spends time building up the arrangement with just the right amount of tension which he follows up with a break intended to be euphoric and uplifting before introducing the melodic elements which allow the track. Progressive House is a prime example of a sub-genre of House music that has sped ahead of its brethren in the race for popularity.
This is perhaps due to the fact that the modern version of it, is more in line with mainstream pop and can be easily incorporated into tracks that turn out to be worldwide sensations. TLUXX has infused “Round and Round” ft. Alina Reane with all the elements necessary to head into this successful direction.
