Flosstradamus – ☮☮☮ Lana’s T...

Trapa del Rey is what is gucci.  Trap music is definitely on the up and with remixes like this it can only fortify the cause.  There seems to be a constant satisfaction with anything  Flosstradamus, who has being going strong in the trap game for a while now.  This isn’t my favorite remix, but it is Lana Del Rey, and it is a trap remix, therefore it must be posted as I am an advocate of both.  RUUUUN DA TRAP ︻┳═一

Mash-Up Monday No. 1 – The Hood In...

Good morning OHD. I am here today delivering your first official “Mash-Up Monday” post. For all of you who love Mash-Ups as much as I do, I assure you I will only be delivering OHD quality tracks. Anyways today we have an awesome mix off of The Hood Internets Mixtape: Vol. 6, which over all is awesome. Definitely worth a look. This Penguin Prison x Biggie Mash-Up just stood out to me. It takes my boy Notorious B.I.G. and throws him back into the limelight so to speak. Have a listen.

Fuck With Mo’ Money (Ma$e x Diddy x Biggie x Penguin Prison) – The Hood Internet

This second Mash-Up is straight off of Wait Whats’ brand new 24 track Tingo EP. However this track is my personal favorite. Both tracks mixed have been favorites of mine at one point or another, so this is a perfect way to bring them back. Make sure to check out Wait Whats’ Soundcloud where you can find the rest of the EP for download.

Enjoy.

Flying Blind – Cosmic Gate feat. J...

I love trance as a genre and particularly vocal trance, which much of the time is basically a cousin to progressive house. Cosmic Gate, a German trance DJ duo, does great work making their trance tracks a nice blend of beat & base without losing the essence of basic trance, meaning that you get lost in the smoothness and even if the music is blaring it still has a subliminal chill sound. This release from mid April this year is a little heavier baseline than most trance I listen to, but the vocals by JES are so sweet and just makes this track straight bliss. Great buildup and great lyrics, and I’m gonna send more trance your way soon! xo

Chasing Cars (John Ross Junior Remix) &#...

I will admit that Chasing Cars was one of my favorite songs back in the day– yes, I do have a pretty diverse taste in music. I never expected somebody to remix it, and do it so well. Listen to it, enjoy it and let them smooth beats take over your body. If you’re impatient, skip to 2:15 because the build up is sick. Enjoy your Sunday. Cheers.

Artesian – David Hiller

David Hiller has stood out to me for his ability to sway away from the typical dubstep sound and create something entirely new. I’ve always seen his music as something dark but energetic. This original from him is a perfect representation of that. As most of you know, I am not at all into dubstep, but when I do come across a track that isn’t too hard hitting or has a unique sound, It will deserve a spot in my collection. Artesian has done just that. Enjoy.

Cover Friday: Emil & Friends –...

Seeing as we are all such big fans of covers here at OHD we’ve decided to incorporate a, get this, ~~*:・゚✧~~  Cover Friday! ~~*:・゚✧~~  I know I know don’t all cream your little pants at once but I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a while now.  I come across so many good covers on a weekly basis it seemed criminal to keep them from you all.  Judging from the feedback on the last cover we posted it seems only right we start making this a weekly thing.  So from here on out, every Friday I will be bringing you some of my favorite covers, new and old, of all genres.  This week we have a cover from the Brooklyn based electro-pop group Emil & Friends.  “Polish Girl” is by far my favorite Neon Indian song so I was eager to see what someone else’s take would sound like.  It’s not as good as the original (i.m.o.), but it’s different and that’s what I like about it, and most covers for that matter.  It’s not about being as good or better than the original it’s about laying down your own spin on the song.  I hate when people literally go out of their way to cry about a band or a song being covered.  Like, sit down little baby and just listen to the song.  Forget about your pre-made judgments and listen to it with an open mind.  I know it might be hard with your little baby brain but just try it okay? Okay.  Now here’s your binky go back to sleep.

One (Gazzo OFFICIAL Remix) – KDrew

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]ll right everyone, hope your day is going well :) This track comes from Mike Gazzo aka Gazzo formerly known as Cloud9 who is known for his remixes, original productions and more and has made a definite impact on the EDM scene. This track perfectly reflects Gazzo‘s ability to remix tracks and build it into something completely new and festival ready. KDrew‘s track One is one hell of a banger to begin with, and Gazzo‘s remix is just that much better. I know you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.

Indie Mix Vol. I

Indie Mix Vol. I is here.  I’ve always been a huge advocate of indie/alternative music, more so than any other genre because the nature of the indie sound.  It’s influenced by so many other genres on such a wide scale there’s really a place for everything.  Whether you’re happy, sad, or just wanna kick back and put you’re feet up, there are so many indie bands that basically fit every category of whatever mood your in.  From the feel good vibes of Penguin Prison and RAC, to the more electronically infused sound of Uncle Skeleton and Jhameel, to the more chilled out Summer CampVol. I has got it all.

Ellie Goulding – High For This (Th...

I LOVE THIS COVER.  I’ve always been a huge fan of covers, similar to remixes, because I love hearing other people’s take on a song.  In this instance, Ellie Goulding and the ever-consistent Xaphoon Jones jump on The Weeknd‘s “High For This” which happens to be one of my favorite songs of his.  I’ve heard so many covers of his songs but this is definitely one of the best.  Noah’s production is spot on and Ellie Goulding’s vocals provide a perfect female alternative to Abel’s original.  Top notch remix from a couple of my favorite artists in the industry today.

Wait – Adventure Club

HEYooo. Got a real rich one for you all today! Yesterday Adventure Club released yet another phenomenal original mix, Wait. This track stays true to what Adventure Club has put out in the past, which is nothing short of  continuously enjoyable tracks, that flow in and out of clean, synonymous beats. The synth tones, mixed with the reoccurring female vocals once again really set the mood in this one. This track definitely gives off the same feel Do I see Color did, but slowed down to give a more relaxed reverberating ora throughout the song. I really enjoy this aspect of it. Adventure Club will also be releasing their new EP just in time for summer 2012 so keep you’re eyes peeled for that in the near future. Until then, I believe this is a great teaser. Enjoy.

Lonsdale Boys Club – Light Me Up (...

Lonsdale Boys Club‘s “Light Me Up” is literally the perfect summer jam.  They dropped the original couple months ago but the recent surfacing of remixes that I somehow missed really pushed me into making a post.  I’ve loved Grum for a while now and I honestly wasn’t surprised by the quality of his remix; pretty much what we’ve come to expect.  I’ve also been a fan of Louis La Roche‘s funky disco style for a couple years now and I really enjoyed his remix of the song.  Still not sure which one I like the most but between the remixes and the original, it’s a summer jam that definitely deserves some playing out these next few months.

Tuesday Mix-Up #7

I want to immediately apologize for the last 2 weeks missing my weekly Tuesday Mix-Up, with finals and school coming to a close and far too epic summer parties to attend to, I accidentally missed Tuesday’s altogether. Blame the al-al-alcohol baby. With that out of the way, lets get right back to it then shall we? Like before and just like you know, the best dance, dubstep, mashup and indie tracks of the last week ALL right here for your listening and downloading pressure. Getttttt readyyyy

I don’t know how to start. FUUuuu

1. Honestly, probably one of the best dubstep remixes I’ve heard of this track coming from none other than Sound Remedy who recently dropped another huge dubstep remix Neapolitan Dreams just last week that Blake posted up.

The Funeral (Sound Remedy Remix) – Band Of Horses

2. God I have such a soft spot for mashups it’s kind of pathetic. Especially when they come from The Hood Internet. It’s gotten to the point that I usually decide to post a track they release before I’ve heard the entire song

See Youth (Usher vs Santigold) – The Hood Internet

3. An interesting reggae cover of Foster The People from Cris Cab that I could not help but share. Very nice take on an already great song – I think you’ll like it too.

Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The People Cover) – Cris Cab

4. Same thing that I said about The Hood Internet for anything that comes from Diplo lately. This track quickly became a favorite of mine over the last week and is at the top of my recently most played. Is this trap? Moomba? Someone help me here.

Set It Off (Ft. Lazerdisk Party Sex) – Diplo

5. Gotta say that its been a long time since I’ve posted anything from Designer Drugs but I’m glad that I am again. This disco-pop dance track reminds me of all the good shit that I used to listen to of theirs back in the day. Like I said, gooooood shit.

I'll Be Lovin U (Designer Drugs Remix) – Mariah Carey

6. RAC seems to be almost a weekly feature on these mix-ups. And within reason because these mofos kill it. This track is no different in its ability to get stuck in my head and turn it up over and over.

Love U More (RAC Mix) – Sunday Girl

7. I don’t know much to say about A.Skillz and honestly don’t want to say anything more than – just listen to the track. MAKE SURE YOU GET TO 45 seconds in – you’ll see why I am into it so much.

California soul (A.Skillz Remix) – A.Skillz

8. Ok.. You got me. This track isn’t even close to being new. It’s back from like early 2009 – but it deserves to be relived. Especially for you kids who haven’t heard it. goddamn I love Crystal Castles and this remix makes it just that much better :)

Crimewave (Midnight Conspiracy Remix) – Crystal Castles

9. This is different than what I usually post but I felt it deserved to be listened to. I love her voice – it’s SO good.

Jungle – Transcoded – Emma Louise

All I Know Feat. Luke Bingham (Seven Lio...

This just in folks! Hailing from the hills of Lompoc, and now living in Santa Barbarian Jeff Montalvo better known as Seven Lions has got some serious talent. His remix of All I Know, in perticular is amazing! Enough said. Having tracks like this come from an artist who is so close to home, makes me love it even more. So, if you have not heard of Jeff Montalvo before I suggest you get on it, so you guys aren’t missing out anymore. Over all this track is fairly intense; moreover I am very picky when it comes to dub step. I like when it still has a sense of harmony and it is not just cacophonous noise. This track does this for me. The inspirational lyrics, mixed up with the filthy drops makes for a great one for sure. Seven Lions completely recreates this track in the exact same way his EP did on many other tracks last month. Which if you have not heard is available for your listening pleasure, and download on Soundcloud and Beatport.

Enjoy.

Rage Valley EP – Knife Party

Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen aka Knife Party have seriously been taking the world by storm since the release of their EP, 100% No Modern Talking. The track Internet Friends has found massive success in the electro scene and has probably been added to every DJ’s set since it dropped. Coming at us with four new tracks is their latest EP titled, Rage Valley. The duo announced Rage Valley quite a while ago but kept pushing the official release until today. As expected, Knife Party graces us with a few hard hitting genres in this EP. As always make sure to support the artist and buy this EP on Beatport.
