[Preview] Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello & Alesso – Eclipse (Why Am I Doing This?)

Release Info

TRACK NAME: Eclipse (Why Am I Doing This?)

ARTIST(S): Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Alesso

GENRE(S): Electro House


2011 was a revolutionary year for electronic music, with larger extended festivals, new content, and more people joining the revolution everyday there’s one group that were on the front of this, the Swedish House Mafia. Playing at Madison Square Garden was a small victory compared to what they are doing now with Axwell making a return to New York soon for the revolution show Cosmic Opera, and with Miami homing in word of a two day Masquerade Motel event continues to room the air. Alesso wasn’t far behind his Swedish friends with a kick started year with a two track EP release on Refune, and the MASSIVE remix to Pressure. Followed up by a massive remix to David Guetta‘s Titanium and Raise Your Head on Refune, including another new ID track always ready.

Eclipse starts with a banging dark high pitched synth that grows in volume aided by a fat kick that blends in perfectly to create this raging feel. With a space in the track a dark heavy bass comes in with notes only the trio could perfect, with time progressing support comes from two higher pitches synths one at the end of the messure and a different one during the messure. With another space we hear a higher pitched synth come in with another perfect melody this time aided by synths that resemble a Raise Your Head synth. As the higer pitch synth begins to loop and the track begins to build everything is perfectly blended together as the vocal chant from a Mirock song comes in a goes WHY AM I DOING THIS? dropped into a dark fat heavy bass unlike anything we’ve seen before  which features some dubstep incorperated sounds. No release date or label is announced yet but we have a extended preview for you below check it out!

    I’m more of a cleaner minimal house person, I think I nice simple crisp beat that gets your head bouncing and body moving, then with some high pitch female vocals over the top and a less grungy drop like the second one in this. Its always the vocals that makes people want to hear it again and give you that ‘love’ feeling but its the beat that adds the OMG feeling. I personally don’t think this track will go very far, I think people are going to start to miss the old minimal house and get too much electro house. Shame I love these guys’ work.

    @Josh I totally agree, this hasn’t got the catchy vocals or HUGE synth midi pattern to grab the public as did save the world or One. This track is a BIG let down from these excellent producer’s previous productions.

    Of course it’s not as good as One, Save the world,… and it’s just because Axwell’s style is not in this track guys. I like it, but it could be better coming from these house genius.

    I am not a fan of this track, i feel they are trying to incorporate to many styles into the one song. Shame because we’ve come to expect more from 3 heavy weights of the edm scene.
