George Acosta Called…

…and he wants his beat back. Ian Carey’s party hit, “Last Night (feat. Snoop Dogg & Bobby Anthony)” was recently mixed by Spencer & Hill and the moment I heard it, I was rather surprised by it’s similarity to George Acosta’s “True Love (Gerry Cueto ASOT Mix)” – which I ripped myself from the “A State Of Trance Episode 442” 2-hour mix – it’s that good! I only noticed cause I friggin’ love the hard drop in “True Love” (around 2:55 in) and I had to say something. Where can I go to bitch about trivial nonsense? Oh right, my blog… Both are great songs though, regardless.

• Ian Carey, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Anthony – Last Night (Spencer & Hill Remix)

• George Acosta – True Love (Gerry Cueto ASOT Mix) √++

It was brought to my attention that there might be a chain of rip-offs going on here as Wolfgang Gartner’s, “Fire Power”, too, has a similar bassline.

Wolfgang Gartner – Fire Power (Original Mix)

Last Night

Lost your friends? Lost your phone? No idea how you’ll get home? Ian Carey feels your pain. This song closely resembles David Guetta’s house sound (for those not familiar with Ian Carey’s own pop-house sound). Pair it with the lyrical flows of Snoop Dogg and Bobby Anthony and you’ve got yourself one a great party track!

Musical Seduction

Alright so Skrillex has me freakin’ out lately over whether I should pay my bills or go see him live at the Abstract Festival this upcoming weekend! I hear he’s amazing live and, of course, tears it up on my speakers at home. Here are some awesome remixes he’s let loose over the past year that I’ve been nodding nonstop to. The Snoop Dogg remix is just too awesome for words! However, I cannot find it, for the life of me, anywhere in higher quality than mother fucking 96kbps, so the download below is gonna sound a bit muddy but the rest are on spot with standard dubPhonics audio quality. Enjoy!!!

Snoop Dogg – Sexual Seduction (Skrillex Remix) √++ *96kbps

Skrillex – My Name Is Skrillex (Skrillex Remix)

The All-American Rejects – The Wind Blows (Skrillex Remix) √++

Skrillex – Slats Slats Slats

Going back to Valerna, I present to you an awesome Busta Rhymes mix with a big sound (I know, I’m just as surprised as you are).

Busta Rhymes – Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See (Valerna Remix)

Continuing on with some more hip-hop/rap, I heard this mix a couple weeks back and thought it fit the site as it’s mixing Morgan Page’s “The Longest Road (feat. Lissie) [Deadmau5 Dub]” (or one of the Deadmau5 remixes of that song, I have like 10…). The vocals add a great new dimension to the familiar beat.

Birdman Ft. Jay Sean – Written On Her (Main) √++

Birdman Ft. Jay Sean – Written On Her (Instrumental)

I know it’s not a new track, but as fellow dP author NaveeDJ says, “classics will be classics”. Melleefresh and Deadmau5 have an awesome collab on Deadmau5’s “At Play CD” that encases a bunch of crazy beats. Get ready for some heavy electro house grinds – ridiculous lyrics!

Melleefresh & Deadmau5 – Afterhours (Original Mix) √++

Switching back to a bit more funky-styles, thought I’d share a great remix of Hey Champ’s “Neverest”.

Hey Champ – Neverest (Raw Man Remix)

Bit Funk came on scene earlier this year with some original work of theirs, really cool electro-disco beats!

Bit Funk – Things I Can’t Remember

Bit Funk – Love Scientific

Bit Funk – A Question For You (…do you like to dance?)

Finally, NaveeDJ showed me this first track and I got all excited cause it mixes in an OLD favorite (below)!

I really liked where this mix was going but I feel it’s missing the drop…still a great piece
