TOTD: Hazard (Original Mix) - Leon B

Hard dance is a genre that is very popular in small places.  What I mean is, it's not like house where quite a few people can say: "I know this song" or "I know that artist".  Hard dance tends to feed itself to a specific audience.  Most of these members know how to do a type of dance that goes well with the music.  Two examples of the dancing are the Melbourne Shuffle and Jumpstyle.  Both of these dances work well with the hard dance genre, or if you want to call it: Hardstyle.

This track, Hazard has topped beatport for a while, and it's a sweet track.  I'm going to share it with you guys.


For the DJs:  most of you won't have to worry about mixing music like this because like I said, fans of it are few far and in between.  But when you have to, it might be hard.  The beat along with the bass in this music can be tricky, and can actually make it feel like a 5 beat per measure track every once in a while.  This is a kind of song that you mix in at the beginning and out at the end.  Don't try and mix this with most regular house, if anything use it with prog house because they tend to have the same buildup pattern.

Cheers
