Shaking Like Tremolo

Check out this awesome new electro house beat from BetaTraxx; reminds me of Wolgang Gartner’s wicked track, “Undertaker

• BetaTraxx – Mafiosa

Speaking of Wolfgang Gartner, I came across this CLASSIXX remix (perhaps a bit late) and thought how can you go wrong with this incredible duo? It’s followed by his #1 track on BeatPort, friggin awesome!

CLASSIXX – Cold Act Ill (Wolfgang Gartner Monster Mix)

Wolfgang Gartner & Mark Knight – Conscindo (Original Club Mix) √+

I discovered Valerna the other day when I came across this clean mix of The Cars (awesome bassline for those of you with decent systems). There are dozens of other mixes and originals of theirs that you can check out on YouTube

• The Cars – Moving in Stereo (Valerna Remix) √++

• Silk – Freak Me (Valerna Remix) (Whoa, 90’s)

I love Louis La Roché! I’ve been following this kid for nearly 3 years now, back when he first released the funky “Peach EP” (I uploaded it below for those interested). It definitely sparked my interest in French House, which took my interest in nu-disco to a whole new level. Since then, it sounds like he’s refined his sound a bit from the original über-pop/funky style found in his early work.

• Ocelot – Beating Hearts (Louis La Roché Remix)

Realizing that I’ve only posted only a few of his songs, here are some of his other remixes I’ve yet to post.

Heads We Dance – My Heart Is Set On You (Louis La Roché Remix) √++

The Phantom’s Revene – Absolute Ego Riot (Louis La Roché Remix) (twangy)

Speaking of The Phantom’s Revenge…

The Phantom’s Revenge – Saturated Phat Impact (Esto! Remix)

…But I digress. Here’s the CD that got Louis La Roché on my radar (lot of Michael Jackson mixes on here, very funky)

Louis La Roché – The Peach EP (Full CD) [41MB]

Drop Down

I haven’t posted much filthy dubstep on here, but this song starts with a really enchanted tribal sound then drops into a filthy dubby beat @ 1:50. Both parts are excellent.

• Modestep – Exile √++

…and some follow up dirty dubstep from Rusko.

Rusko – Hold On ft. Amber Coffman (Sub Focus Remix) √++ (crazy grind/wobble)

Going back to the 90’s with this track, Wiley spits over White Town’s “Your Woman” while Hervé drops a nice grimy downtempo beat to pull it all together.

• Wiley – Never Be Your Woman (feat. Emeli Sande) [Hervé Rework] √++

Deadmau5 is back with a new progressive house track with a similar sound to his other hit “Moar Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff“.

Deadmau5 – Some Chords (Original Mix)

I meant to press this one a while back. Designer Drugs brings us another “ambitious club banger” with an interesting video to match (perfectly), plus they’re playing at UCSD’s Sun God Festival!

Designer Drugs – Drop Down (heavy)

I came across this the other night – always diggin’ on CLASSIXX. Treasure Fingers add a bit more rat-tat-tat to the remix and a touch of jazz piano in the background.

CLASSIXX – I’ll Get You (Treasure Fingers Remix)

This next track is one of Calvin Harris’ more recent singles (although it’s nothing new in blog time). It has a nice deep bass line and a catchy chorus but it can get a little repetitive after a while. Nero provides a more calm approach while Laidback Luke’s mix is a bit more synth intensive.

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me (Laidback Luke Remix)

Calvin Harris – You Used To Hold Me (Nero Remix)

Some cool drum ‘n’ bass trance.

BT – Godspeed (Hybrid Remix)

Brooklyn based Chimp Beams is an downtempo, electronic dub trio formed in 2001 by three Japanese men. It’s a rather dreamy CD, the first half is pretty solid while the rest becomes very downtempo/ambient, almost too much. Their music is a mixture of dub, breakbeats, jazz, and techno (you try classifying it!).

CD Highlights: “Menina”, “Brooklyn Dub”, and “Sleeptalking”

Chimp Beams – Menina (Full CD) [93MB]

¡Numero Cinquantuno!

This was supposed to be my Big 50th Post! But I chose to make one real quick the other night. So, here’s number 51! (technically 52…damn)

First up on the list is a Ke$ha remix that’s been boomin’ through my stereo the past few days! It’s an amped up club mix of “TiK ToK” that fans of the original might enjoy (if you care for electro/house that is). Props to Chedda Cheves on this one

Ke$ha vs. Rocco – Everybody TiK ToK (DJ Dumpz Mashup)

Drake dropped a line in The Villians’ bubbly remix of Lykke Li’s “Little Bit,” the result is a pretty tight track (I like the culmination of artists @ 4:50), thanks :DH

Lykke Li – Little Bit (Villains Remix feat Drake) [EPF Edit]

Ellie Goulding officially released her Lights CD last March and it’s pretty tight, I’m really feeling the refreshed “Wish I Stayed” track, it’s a nice change up from the original blog release version which is a lot more acoustic. You be the judge:

Ellie Goulding – Wish I Stayed

Ellie Goulding – Wish I Stayed (Demo)

Savoy keeps pumpin’ out new tracks, one of his more recent ones is a remix of Britney Spears’ “Piece Of Me” song into a pretty heavy thumping, club banging track with a sinister vibe (love them hi-NRG “haunting” tracks like these).

Savoy – Rich and Famous

I’ve have a raging, um, passion for The XX. This track is from way back in 09….light years in blogger universe. It’s a pretty basic 4-step downtempo sorta remix, but I love how easy it goes down.

The XX – Shelter (Them Jeans Drum Edit)

Cassette Kids reminds me a lot of No Doubt, especially singer, Gwen Stefani. Don’t let that discourage you though if it already has haha. The follow-up Diamond Cut remix bestows their recognizable sound, adding a nice touch of synths, electric guitar, and (slightly) suspenseful builds.

Cassette Kids – Lying Around

Cassette Kids – Lying Around (Diamond Cut Remix)

Passion Pit gets a lot of love on the blogs. I came across yet another “Sleepyhead” remix that takes the piece to a new level of ambience, it’s basically a synthed out rework of the intro with faded vocals.

Passion Pit – Sleepyhead (Cassette Club Remix)

Something for the nu-disco fans! Kavinsky (one who I had no idea made tracks capable of nu-disco remixes)

Kavinsky – Nightcall (Breakbot Remix)

…and The Twelves

The Twelves – Works For Me

Andrea has a new track out that sounds a lot like Aphex Twin’s (better) work, the piano is a beautiful touch to this enchanting melody.

Andrea – Snow Realms

I don’t usually listen to mixes like this (past the songs I like in the listings) but I really enjoyed the start of this piece, the drop into Alex Kidd’s “Digital Abyss (Club Mix)” is nothing short of epic! Download the full mix and a few individual tracks below. [Updated]

I made another video for a favorite song of mine, DJ Slink’s “Blame It On Billie”

Halfway Gone

This track is very similar to all their others but I still like the beat

Adam K & Soha – Who Cares? Really… (Original Mix)

Kings Of Convenience have a really relaxing indie sound while their remixes with Röyksopp and Four Tet are very well done

Kings Of Convenience – I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From (Röyksopp Remix)

• Kings Of Convenience – The Weight of My Words (Four Tet Remix) (Sway)

Kings Of Convenience – Misread

I love Morgan Page’s distinct sound, the “O0oh, O0oh” is also very catchy (it’s been stuck in my head all day)

• Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Morgan Page Main)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Morgan Page Dub) (Favorite)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Fred Falke Radio Edit)

I also uploaded the rest of the Halfway Gone (Remixes) CD, it includes 8 mixes from Morgan Page, Fred Falke, and Jody Den Broeder (including the songs above^)

Lifehouse – Halfway Gone (Remixes) (Full CD) [100MB] Removed By Request

This song has a nice echoing, dreamy beat. I always fall into a relaxing trance under it (CLASSIXX is a highly favored artist of mine)

Major Lazer – Cash Flow (CLASSIXX Glass Bottom Dub Mix) √+

Good trance!

Maor Levi – Reflect

An older, somewhat underground, nu-disco favorit

Matt Turner – Never Say

Just heard this song the other day, clearly a Deadmau5 remix, love his dream-trance style.

Medina – You & I (Deadmau5 Remix)

Mr. Hudson remixed by Rusko for a really nice dubstep flow

Mr. Hudson – White Lies (Rusko’s Euphoria Mix) (Excellent)

I figured since I posted the Mr. Hudson mix above, I’d post the other track of his that I friggin’ LOVE

Mr. Hudson – Everything Is Broken (Feat. Kid Cudi) (Favorite)

I posted the Kaskade remix of “In My Arms” a while back, I meant to upload this one with it. Either way, it has a great Benny Benassi appeal to it

Plumb – In My Arms (Bibmo Jones Radio Edit)

The Whitest Boy Alive is another great indie band that you should really check out! These remixes have a lot of pop and energy. Andy Webb’s remix blends The Whitest Boy Alive with tracks from Mylo and Cut Copy (another great band). Enjoy!

The Whitest Boy Alive – Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix)

The Whitest Boy Alive – Otto’s Golden Journey (Andy Webb’s Dreamy Blend)

Another favorite track of mine with an awesome grinding beat

• Cerf, Matiska & Jaren – Light The Skies (Retrobyte’s Classic Electrobounce Mix)

I uploaded my favorite remix of Light The Skies to YouTube

Relax…

Relax…

Mayer Hawthorne – Green Eyed Love (CLASSIXX Remix)

Télépopmusik – Breathe

Télépopmusik – Don’t Look Back (John Tejada Remix)

Above & Beyond are one of my favorite trance groups ever

Above & Beyond – Home

Above & Beyond – Tri-State

Above & Beyond – Can’t Sleep

…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
