Ruffneck Bass


I wasn’t going to post on Skrillex’s newest CD seeing how he’s pretty much opened the flood gates to fandom and I figure most people already have it. Regardless, here’s his latest album in official Beatport release quality. Enjoy the ruffneck bass!

Skrillex – More Monsters and Sprites (Full CD) [65 MB]

There’s also a new mix of Nero’s “Promises” track, in “studio” quality this time.

Nero – Promises (Skrillex & Nero Remix) [Studio Version]

Also, meant to post this way back when, but it’s still just as incredible as the day it dropped!

Benny Benassi – Cinema (Skrillex) √+

I Miss Coachella

I love this song, it has a very mellow nu-disco feel

Priors – What You Need (Hey Champ Remix)

Ferry Corsten recently released his new mix CD, Once Upon A Night, this is the first song off the album and I’m really liking the piano

Yuri Kane – Right Back

I know it’s not new, but I love the Bag Raiders’ ridiculously awesome indie-pop beat!

Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars (feat. Rhys of ‘Ted & Francis’)

This La Roux mix is really unique, the steel drums add a really cool chill-out vibe

La Roux – Quicksand (Boy 8-Bit remix)

This Crystal Castles live performance is pretty good, the intro was wonderfully done

Crystal Castles vs. Health – Crimewave (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)

Pitbull and Benny Benassi (one of my favorite sets at Coachella) put together an awesome dance mix with this mash-up of “Satisfaction” and “Move Shake Drop”

Pitbull – Move Shake Drop (Satisfaction Cover) (Mix Munkies Extended)

This is a cool drum n bass mix of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” that really drops at 2:23

Rihanna – Rude Boy (TC Remix)

This fuzzy/bubbly mix of Tegan & Sara’s “Alligator Tears” oozes Morgan Page’s style. Great beat, unique vocals

Tegan & Sara – Alligator (Morgan Page Remix)

Miike Snow was fantastic at Coachella, looked nothing like I thought he did :P but Felix da Housecat recently mixed “Silvia” to the best that I’ve heard, enjoy

Miike Snow – Silvia (Felix da Housecat Remix)

Designer Drugs have been pumping out a buch of tracks lately, one of their latest, a mix of Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” adds a tastefully wobbly bassline and catchy two-steppin’ breakbeat

Treasure Fingers – Cross The Dancefloor (Designer Drugs Remix)

Finishing up this post with “Dead-Mow Five” (joke) mixing Eric Prydz’s “Pjanoo” (for the millionth time) from his set from WMC 2010

Eric Prydz – Pjanoo (Deadmau5 WMC 2010 Edit)

Forty1 and Forth

(^click the image^ for its real color…)

This group has some tight hip-hop beats, this one is by far my favorite – great bass line too for those with good systems!

• Blue Sky Black Death – Lord Of Our Vice

With Kid Cudi leaking out a bunch of new tracks lately, one of them being “Highs ‘N’ Lows,” I thought I’d put out a few other original/remixed songs of his I like (that I haven’t already posted and are not off the “Man On The Moon” CD)

• Kid Cudi – Highs ‘N’ Lows

Kid Cudi – Dat New New (VIKING Remix)

Kid Cudi – Look Up In Da Stars (feat. Wale & Breez)

Kid Cudi – Pusuit of Happiness (Feat. MGMT And Ratatat) [Benny Benassi Remix]

I just bought this track, I’m really into it! Kid Cudi continues to please with his feel-good style while keeping that fresh lyrical+orchestral sound he’s known for. Dan Black sounds a lot like the singer, Jeff Mangum, of Neutral Milk Hotel (if any of you have a clue who they are). Enjoy!

Dan Black – Symphonies (feat. Kid Cudi) [Bonus Track] (Great)

I’m a big fan of Ronald Jenkees! This guy is AMAZING, he does a lot of solo work while providing some solid jams for the group Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9) on their “Peaceblaster” CD. I find his YouTube videos to be the most entertaining part though, he really gets into playing his keyboard!

• Ronald Jenkees – Guitar Sound

• Ronald Jenkees – Stay Crunchy

>>Check out all his vids here: Ronald Jenkees’ Youtube Page

Janelle vs. Johnny

This progressive house piece has been a top play for me lately. I really dig the grungy guitar pick up @ 1:15, it’s quite nice!

• David Vendetta – She Turns Around (Cosa Nostra Mix) (Favorite)

Another typical, somewhat epic/dramatic, Benny Benassi remix (always a fan of his).

• Tiësto & Sneaky Sound System – I Will Be Here (Benny Benassi Dub)

Here’s a static, lazy dub remix of La Roux’s “I’m Not You Toy” (finally a remix of a track besides “In For The Kill” and “Bulletproof”) I swear I hear frogs @ 2:43, but I’m also wearing headphones…

• La Roux – I’m Not Your Toy (Nero Remix) √++

This song is well titled, it’s got a good grind – sounds a lot like Justice, IMO.

• Wolfgang Gartner – Undertaker (Original Mix) √++

Alex Metric recently remixed the new Gorillaz track, “Stylo,” to what I thought was better than the original. He’s mixed a lot of disco-funk into these next tracks.

Gorillaz – Stylo (Alex Metric Remix)

Bloc Party – One More Chance (Alex Metric Remix)

Phoenix – Lisztomania (Alex Metric Remix)

However, his original work has a back-to-basics electronic sound.

Alex Metric – Deadly On A Mission (Dub)

Okay, so I’m a little embarrassed to post Eiffel 65 (90’s flashback!), but I like this remix. The choppy piano riffs really make it (for me at least).

Eiffel 65 – Blue 2009 (DJs From Mars Attax Extended Remix)

This song is SO Euro! But it always puts me in a good mood :D give it a chance!

• Gigi d’Agostino – I’ll Fly With You (L’amour Toujours)

The piano is like my ultimate weakness in music. This song is really peaceful in kind of a sad way, it’s one of my favorites

Wamdue Project feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn – Forgiveness

• Wamdue Project feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn – Forgiveness (EK’s Love U Mix)

I really like this song (again with the piano) and its video (I love it when they jump into the pool and the beat drops in sync).

• Sébastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (extended intro version)

Sébastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan’s Magic Wand Mix) (video version)

…In Orbit

So I thought I’d start the weekend off with some dance worthy Digitalism!

• Digitalism ZDRLT – Rewind

• Digitalism – Pogo

• Digitalism – Idealistic

• Digitalism – Idealistic (A-Trak Remix)

Digitalism – Zdarlight (cool pickup starts around 3:12 leads into a nice drop)

Some of their remixes

• The Presets – Down Down Down (Digitalism Remix)

• Daft Punk – Technologic (Digitalism Highway To Paris Remix) (Awesome @ 2:18)

Mt. Eden Dubstep’s back again! Bat For Lashes are getting some good remix attention with their song “Daniel”

Mt. Eden Dubstep – Daniel

I re-uploaded all of Mt. Eden Dubstep’s songs that I’ve acquired. Enjoy!

Mt. Eden Dubstep – Compilation CD (Full CD) [187MB] (UPDATED 5/7)

Holy Ghost! It’s disco-ish only with a modern techno twist (CLASSIXX is an amazing artist too! You’ll see them up here real soon).

Holy Ghost! – I Will Come Back (CLASSIXX Acapulco Nights Version)

Holy Ghost! – Hold On

I really like this Benny Benassi remix – there’s so Goddamn many of them out there!

Benny Benassi – Love Is Gonna Save Us (Cheb’Five Remix)

One of the first electronic artists that turned me on to the genre. It’s a pretty sick beat

• Quantic – Time Is The Enemy

Get Haunted With Some Benassi

Whether you get it or not, I find Benassi songs are rave-hectic, jaw-clenching (especially with the right circumstances) goodies.

Benny Benassi – Come Fly Away Feat. Channing

Benny Benassi – Come Fly Away (Adam K & Soha Mix)

Benny Benassi – Love Is Gonna Save Us

Benny Benassi – Castaway (Technically “Benassi Bros.” – whatever)

Benny Benassi – Bring The Noise (Pumpkin Remix)

Benny Benassi – Finger Food

Benny Benassi – I Love My Sex (Bonus Special Guest)

• Benny Benassi – I Love My Sex (Pumpkin Remix)

Benny Benassi vs. Global Deejays – San Francisco Dreaming (Musical Racket Mix)

Daft Punk vs. Benny Benassi – Put Your Hands Up For Technologic

I don’t want to re-post songs so check out my old posts (or the right hand “Categories” column) for other favorite Benny Benassi songs and remixes


Hey, so its pretty late. I got my headphones on listening to music I downloaded earlier, it’s kind of hypnotic at this hour! I also noticed that I have 12 ‘drafts’ (posts) I still need to throw out here of artists and such that I really like. I’ll get to that, in the mean time here’s what I got playin’ fresh from this week and a few from way back.

An old favorite out with a new bit

• Deadmau5 & Billy Newton Davis – Outta My Life (Touch Mix)

I’ve also been bumping this song, I think it’s kinda cool, reminds me of the TRVS DJAM “Fix Your Face” remix CD, and I love Benny Benassi too so…

Pitbull – Now You See It (Benny Benassi Remix & Dj Shimik Ext) √++

Here’s what I keep playing as filler when I got nothin’ else to play (a good bridge/filler song)

Caspa & Rusko – Rock Bottom (Sweet dubstep!)

A little poppy action for you. It’s kinda weird – just heard it and thought I’d throw it out there

Feathers – Weird Dreams

My friend Viet showed me this group, Little People. Check out their whole “Mickey Mouse Operation” CD! Here are the first 2 tracks off it

Little People – Basique

Little People – Moon

I heard a really good remix of “Lisztomania” a while back (yea, the CLASSIXX version is epic but I like change when it comes to music) and this one keeps creepin’ into my playlists

Phoenix – Lisztomania (DSL remix)

One of my favorite Phoenix songs

Phoenix – Too Young

And as always, there’s that bit of room for my random chillout house electric yadda yadda…

BT – Every Other Way (Armind van Buuren Remix)

Imogen Heap – 2-1 (Murdok Dubstep Remix) (Great Chillout Dubstep)

Imogen Heap – Headlock (Joe Nemo 2010 Rework)
