I hope everyone had a great week and is ready for the weekend! I got a good one for you to kick off any sort of party that you may be having/attending… When I first heard Calvin Harris’ Feel So Close, I really wasn’t impressed, and I didn’t understand the hype. Coming across a few remixes( Nero’s is my favorite) of the track, I have grown to like it. I actually just recently found this mashup and it’s quickly made it’s way to my top 25. This hard hitter includes Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Miss Palmer–great combination, huh?
This one probably deserves it’s own post, but I’d rather just include it in this one :). For those of you who like very synthy electronic songs with no vocals that pump you up, this one’s for you. Great track to exercise to. Enjoy!
Morning folks – I wanna kick today off strong for you! And to do just that I’ve compiled two recent releases from Kaskade. I have seriously been a non-stop fan of Kaskade’s since day 1 because of his impeccable taste in beats and more importantly, female vocalists. For some reason, I LOVE electronic dance songs with the right female vocalists.. It changes a song from being good to absolutely GREAT. This first song I’ve got for you today, is an official Mashup coming from the man himself.. mixing Don’t Stop Dancing – one of his most played and recognized tracks today and Alex Gaudino’s Kissed. Check this massive kicker here — NOW.

/// I’m gonna let Dro take over on this post and share with you yet ANOTHER amazing track coming from Kaskade\\\
I can totally agree with Davie in saying that I too, am a HUGE fan of Kaskade. He takes a stab at Skylar Grey’s lead single Invisible and needless to say, he fucking kills it. The intro to this track threw me off a little bit but once it warms up and those vocals drop it really brings this house track to life…WOW. Some dark underlying tones and those all so familiar synths really make this one shine. Check it out and as always…ENJOY!

RAC (The Remix Artist’s Collective) has been a favorite group of mine for quite some time now. Their remixes are always pretty damn consistent and… at least their sound is too :) I think that in general, their most recent remixes are all pretty calm – nothing too trendy or too heavy. just nice electro enjoyment. This track is a remix of Phoenix’s Armistice. I really enjoy it.. Phoenix always does have nice vocals!

It’s pretty interesting to me to watch artists progress the way they do. Especially Britney Spears, as a kid growing up in the ’90s, the main image I conjure up in my head of Spears is her dancing in a schoolgirl outfit to Hit Me Baby… or whatever that song was. She’s progressed a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge amount and for some reason,(one I kinda hate to admit) her new album is really, really growing on me. This song I’ve been listening to for a few days, showed some friends to make sure I wasn’t going crazy thinking that I might like this song… and I do.. WE do. And I have a slight feeling that you will too. Scope it.

Ryan Peitzke, local DJ in my area released this track a few days ago and I’m really liking it. I’ve heard him spin at many a raging house party in SB and he’s getting better and better every fucking minute. He recently remixed Dragonette’s track Hello, it’s called I Just Came (To Say Hello) and I think it deserves more than just a courtesy listen. It’s an epic track that showcases Peitzke’s growing talent and style. btw, its pronounced pitts-key. enjoy :) check out his soundcloud for more tracks available for download!

Found a sexy little remix of Mike Posner’s Please Don’t Go and Calvin Harris’ I’m Not Alone. Both, in my opinion, are fun tracks on their own.. and mashing them together into one couldn’t have been any better of an idea! We can thank the MashMatician’s for that handywork.. The MashMaticians are Dj Zesty and RuBex hailing from Princeton New Jersey. I haven’t heard much of their other tracks but I gave their soundcloud a listen and so should you :)

Literally JUST stumbled upon this remix by Johnny Lawson, normally known for his relaxed disco-feelish remixes is an epic producer in my opinion. This remix of Mike Posner’s Save Your Goodbye shows exactly the kind of talent he has and the potential in music that he has to release. I hope that makes sense… it’s early, I’m headed to calculus but wanted to throw this up ASAP.
Enjoy, I know I will be with Tum on the car ride this morning :)
Got a couple new ones here for you. My buddy kevin showed me this remix of Brand New’s song Spiritus Sancti remixed by the Adventure Club. It’s super trendy and I think for all of you out there who enjoy a little dubstep – this will treat you quite nicely.
This next one is an interesting rap-mashup that I am also enjoying quite a bit featuring Wu Tang Clan and Simian Mobile Disco’s classic riff from I Believe. It’s Called Ballers Believe In C.R.E.A.M. Enjoy!
I was talking about this (vvv) track by Simian Mobile Disco.. I realized there was a high chance a lot of you had no idea what I was talking about. It truly is a classic… So spec it.
