As if temps weren’t high enough this summer, leading club artists are unleashing new blazing tracks to make floors even hotter.  Here are some of the best new tracks heating up gay clubs.

beat-box-summer-heat-beats-2“I Miss You”
La La
True to her name, La La can sing.  Her first track, “Never Forget You”, produced by remixing duo Maniacalm, was a smash on dance radio last winter, climbing to #5 on Billboard.  Her follow-up, “I Miss You,” is another collaboration with Maniacalm and even better than their debut.  The track embodies a certain gloom factor reminiscent of Dido’s “White Flag” that similarly plays exceptionally well on dance floors.  Maniacalm deserves props for their high energy production, but it is La La’s impressively gut wrenching vocals that take the song to another level.  When she sings how ‘she tried, she tried, she tried’ – we believe it. La La may be pint-sized but her pipes are larger than life.

beat-box-summer-heat-beats-3“Taste the Night”
Dalal
Dalal’s latest dance track is a delicacy in the dark.  It is this summer’s “Slave 4 You,” and that’s not just because Dalal bares an eerie resemblance to Britney, which she does.  “Taste the Night” is a sensual and provocative track with a hard-pounding, high energy chorus sure to get bodies grinding on the dance floor.  Like Britney, Dalal seduces with her not-so-innocent doe eyes, wispy blonde locks, and little girl voice.  Her prowess shouldn’t work on gay guys, but it does. We can’t help being swept into the romance of a night with a beautiful stranger.  Or maybe we simply wish we were Dalal, frolicking in the sand with the muscle stud featured in the music video of the song.

beat-box-summer-heat-beats-4“Can I Love You More”
Tony Moran
Having been fortunate enough to see Tony Moran perform recently in Miami, it is quite clear why he has a strong and very devoted following. Moran’s command of the audience from the booth that night was like nothing I had ever witnessed from a DJ before or since. But what made his performance so special was that it was obvious he was enthused by and loved the music he played.  That enthusiasm shines in Tony Moran’s latest club release; a souring, melodic, hard pounding dance track that is the perfect ode to nightlife.  As he did in his cover of When In Rome’s “The Promise,” Moran takes the mic, delivering powerfully visceral vocals that prove he dominates every inch of the dance club, from booth to floor to stage.

beat-box-summer-heat-beats-5“Trying To Leave Now”
Aiden Leslie
I was slow to the hip-pop phenomenon that is Aiden Leslie.  He first came to my attention earlier this year when his publicist handed me Leslie’s “World’s Away” CD with the directive that I must listen to it.  Normally, it would have joined the pile of CDs on my desk but Aiden’s publicist can be persuasive, so I gave it a listen.  I was immediately captivated.  Leslie’s superior vocal styling puts him in league with Justin Timberlake and even Michael Jackson.  I’m not the only one to think so.  “World’s Away” played on MTV and VH1 and became the most requested song on LOGO – topping Click List for four weeks in a row this spring.  His summer track, “Trying to Leave Now” proves he is no one-hit wonder.  It’s another superior crafted, brilliantly executed, expertly produced and highly intelligent pop track that will appeal to both r&b and dance audiences.
