Though many have claimed that artists like Justice are heirs to the throne of the French Touch sound, when producers like Meroz are hooking us with tracks like "Trump," it's hard to take such claims seriously. With an equal amount of Thomas Bangalter and Ian Pooley coming through, this slice of funked electro is the sort of thing that makes you want to drive really fast along a sunny beach—perhaps the piece's only setback is that it doesn't feature a sexy vocal sample, like Room 5's Oliver Cheatham-infused "Make Luv." Still, "Trump" is a certifiable summertime gem.
