Taste The Rainbow

What a great week for new music! I’ve come across a slew of stellar tracks that should bring dubPhonics back to speed. As you may have notice, I’ve been a bit behind here, just nothing new/unique has really presented itself lately.

Jakwob’s latest brings together hip-hop and dubstep, a great change up from his typical style.

Jakwob – Right Beside You √+

Upcoming artist of the year? I’ve heard that stated a few times on the interwebs about Mord Fustang. He’s is certainly making a good name for himself! Dance enticing heavy electro, splash of wobble.

Mord Fustang – Lick The Rainbow (Original Mix)

Mord Fustang – The Electric Dream (Original Mix) √+

Mord Fustang – Super Meat Freeze (Original Mix) √++

I’ve never gotten into Basshunter (a little too Euro for me), BUT Fonzerelli kills it in this remix! I’m loving this track! As a bonus, I thought Bob Sinclair’s lively nu-disco bomb would fit well alongside it. Thanks NaveeDJ for sharing these two, certainly bringin’ in the always appreciated funk!

Basshunter – All I Ever Wanted (Fonzerelli Remix) √+

Bob Sinclair – Fuck The Disco (Original Mix)

YES, YES, YES! Feed Me rocks the effin’ sh*t out of this track! My girlfriend walked in on me playing this and I had to quickly turn on some porn to ease the tension – it’s that dirtyyy.

Nero – Innocence (Feed Me Remix) √++

I dunno if you’ve heard or care (you should) but Skrillex had his laptops and external hard drives stolen out of his hotel room a few weeks back. ALL of his upcoming work towards releasing his next full length album is lost… sigh.

Deadmau5 – Pixel Cheese (Skrillex Remix)

A Swedish House Mafia track featuring John Martin of Miike Snow? Believe it!

Swedish House Mafia – Save The World (ft. John Martin) (Original Mix)

There’s always room for some D’n’B. This one steps on the gas a bit.

Futurebound vs. Metrik – Brave New World (Original Mix) 

I’m incredibly happy with ATB’s latest 2 CD release – full of potential hit singles as well as a much calmer second CD that underlines the artistic complexity of the group. Enjoy!

ATB – Distant Earth (Full CD) [246 MB] <3 <3 <3

Another CD I’ve lined up for you is George Acosta’s “Visions Behind Expressions”. I was curious (around this time last year, after publishing this post) when this was gonna be officially released. I found it by surprise the other, really liking it too!

George Acosta – Visions Behind Expressions (Full CD) [173 MB] √+

You can bet your firstborn that I’ll be posting up on Feed Me’s upcoming album, “Feed Me To the Stars”! It sounds incredible so far! The ending of “To the Stars” is crazy – although it is cutoff. Be sure to listen all the way till the end, or skip to it! Check out their preview mix on their soundcloud:

Drum & Da Bass

Netsky (pronounced: Net-Sky) is an increasingly popular Belgian Drum & Bass musician with some lively “liquid funk” beats. He just released his first full-length, self-titled album a few months back and I’m enjoying every beat. Lot of people hate on drum & bass (from my experience at least). I think it’s pretty uplifting, or maybe I just woke up in a really good mood this morning! Regardless, check ’em out.

Netsky – Everyday √++

Netsky – Your Way √++

Netsky – Smile

Netsky – Lost In This World (dubby)

Netsky – Eyes Closed

Here are some remixes he’s done. A wonderfully heavy job on Pendulum’s “Witchcraft” while mixing a lively bit of DnB into Miike Snow’s “Black & Blue”.

Pendulum – Witchcraft (Netsky Remix) √++

Miike Snow – Black & Blue (Netsky Remix) √++

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)

¡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”

Snow In San Diego

Miike Snow took a lot of people by surprise in 2009 with their coolheaded indie electro-pop sound. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, the band is comprised of singer/songwriter, Andrew Wyatt, and production team, Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, formerly known as Bloodshy & Avant. Miike Snow’s piano riffs have a floaty lullaby tone to them but, when mixed with the shimmery synths and steady percussions, the outcome is a catchy melody with a unique melancholic yet upbeat sound. After the release of their eponymous debut album “Miike Snow” in mid 2009, the modest trio continued to maintain a low profile amidst of great success and high praise after sweeping the blogs. The resulting variety of remixes that inevitably turned up online from names like Fred Falke and dubstep pioneer, Caspa, brought them even further on scene with a new energetic feel to their already hot tracks. If you like feel good music, please check out this band!
