So, lately I've been focusing on what was happening in House music a decade ago. But I will take a break to discuss today, mainly, about how the Dutch scene is absolutely destroying. With the likes of Laidback Luke, Afrojack, and Fedde Le Grand, the Dutch are unstoppable. The overall arching sound of the area is an awesome blend of minimal, tech, and progressive, making some of the raviest music that also appeals very much to hip-hop fans, oddly enough. This post will focus on the Dutchmasters by the name of Chocolate Puma, who actually discovered Laidback Luke and helped his rise to fame. They have the Dutch sound described above with the addition of some Tribal sounds which are really cool.
Disco Electrique (Vocal Mix) - Chocolate Puma & Bingo Players
Amazing. That bass sound just kills me every time. This would EXPLODE at a rave.
Git Cho House On (Chocolate Puma Remix) - Mike Dunn
Git cho house on, children it's time to groove.
Whohaddrums (Original Mix) - Chocolate Puma
This song may be somewhat boring in your headphones, but the key is to imagine the crowd at the main stage of your favorite rave singing along to the awesome tribal beats.
Also, had to include this INCREDIBLE Funkerman remix in this post, just because:
Sexy Girl (Funkerman Remix) - Chocolate Puma
BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB
Funkerman is Fedde's partner in crime, if you will, similar to how Chocolate Puma does a lot of work with Bingo Players (check our very old post on them HERE).

Monthra (Bart B More Secured Rework) - Jayvin Mena
Bart B More typically has a more electro sound, but with this amazing prog/tech track, looks like he's trying to move towards his Dutch friends. Get more of his old tracks HERE.
