Deorro and MAKJ teamed up on the new track "Ante Up," which they just dropped on Soundcloud yesterday. The collaboration sees the two producers fashioning a high energy festival banger, melding their two styles seamlessly as well as mixing in some vocal snippets from a Busta Rhymes track. "Ante Up" comes as a gift to fans in the form of a free download on Deorro's Soundcloud profile.

The track opens with a hard-hitting house beat bursting with energy, soon to be joined by Deorro's brassy Melbourne bounce leads during the drop. Post-drop the track takes an interesting turn, segueing into an unexpected funky section complete with samples from Busta Rhyme's "Wild For Da Night" layered over head nodding beats and a vintage horn section.

The track makes its final rounds, returning to a repeat of the first drop. The mixing of the track's diverse elements is pulled off with great precision, something less astute producers could not have pulled off.
