Its like all of the albums are dropping now!! AND I’m loving it. Seriously though? Porter Robinson is so skilled for his age and honestly his electro/house/dubstep anthems are edgy, innovative, unique, and just overall kick ass. Plus the EP features remixes from the likes of Knife Party, Skism, Kill the Noise, and more!! I don’t know what more to say about the kid. All I can do is give him props for putting together such an epic EP. Its truly awesome and ya’ll would be missing out if you didn’t get yourselves a copy on Beatport. Give it a listen here if ya don’t believe me. I think you’ll find I’m not lying! Enjoy
Datsik’s new album Vitamin D is out now, and it can be purchased on iTunes. Let me tell you, this is definitely an album you don’t want to miss out on. Get it while its hot yo!! I have mad love and respect for Datsik. The many times I have seen this guy live has nothing but helped him earn that love and respect, and I guarantee you that if you like dubstep, and if you are a fan of good bass heavy electronic music, this album is for you! Give it a listen here! Enjoy
Apparently today, I just want a complete bass fix. Obviously who better to go than Figure?? I mean yes, there are other DJs and producers that create some epic bass laced music, but I mean I love all of Figure’s mixes so its convenient to just go to artists hit Figure and play all songs and just ride out the storm ya know? This is just another EPIC face melting bass laced remix from Figure. Its just one of those days! TWO Figure posts in one day?? Gosh ya’ll are so lucky!! Enjoy!!
Purchase it on Beatport
First of all, I was listening to this in my car and then I started thinking about whether I had posted anything about this kick ass song. I haven’t, and honestly I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me. I’m a huge fan of Figure. His mixes are always on point. He kicks ass live. He just is a great DJ overall. He is the shit. This mix is also THE SHIT. I listen to it all the time which makes me wonder how on earth I forgot to post about it! I mean, I probably just wanted to keep all of the awesomeness to myself! HA! Kidding. Well, better late than never I guess! ENJOY!!!
Like WHOA. Okay so this remix is badass. Dirtyloud definitely out did themselves this time. The duo comes out with some crazy mixes that I LOVE, but this one is like awesome. The vocals are hypnotic and have this trance like effect, and then you have this crunchy and filthy bass. They have married the best of both world into this epic remix that all you dubstep bassheads will looove. Enjoy!!
Delta Heavy!!! STOP BEING SO GOOD!!! Like what more can you say about these guys?? How much more can I praise them and their awesomely epic mixes?? I don’t know but I know that every time they come out with a new mix I sure will try to find more ways to express my love for them. This remix, much like all of their previous mixes will not disappoint you. Killer vocals, face melting bass, some huge synths, that all satiate your appetite for some good electronic music. Truly amazing duo. Enjoy
R3hab is just always on point for me. His mixes are pretty much everything and anything I could ever ask for, and this one is no exception. Another great remix that comes in true R3hab fashion! Kick ass, bass lovin, huge synths, and a crazy beat that will keep ya goin all day and night. Well played R3hab. Well played! Enjoyyy!!
Sooo for those of you who didn’t get a chance to go, I am terribly sorry. Beyond Wonderland KILLED it this year. Words cannot describe how epic the scene was. We start our 5 hour journey to San Bernardino from Phoenix AZ… 5 hours isn’t too bad. Shitty part? RAIN. RAIN AND COLD. Did that stop us though? NEVER!! We will never give up on the pursuit to hear some kick as electronic dance music!
Swirling lights everywhere, fire breathing metal sculptures, dancers dressed as little ducks, sheep, and other crazy trippy characters. It was impossible not to feel warm from all the love that was pouring out of this event, you could barely tell it was only like 40 degrees outside. It was also impossible to decide who to go see. It was an incredible talent filled line up on every stage and it was so hard to choose, but we did our best! Front and center for my favorite Norman Doray, Moguai, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Hardwell, ATB, Arty, Gareth Emery, and yes Armin Van Buuren. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the show! Try not to miss out on what of the best events of the year next time!
Norman Doray killed it!!
Mad love for Hardwell
ATB Showing his love
The man who everyone was waiting for … Armin Van Buuren
True electronic talent has the ability to navigate in between different genres without so much as a hiccup. Wick-it The Instigator has that talent. He’s got his fingers in electro-house, dubstep, and moombahton. What I like most about his style is that while clearly displaying the ability to flip back and forth between very diverse styles, the base influence is very oriental and drum related. The end result would make you think he’s from Malaysia or India, but in contrary is really from Nashville, Tennessee! I’ve posted two tracks below which highlight his ability to change style, and pump life into some well-known hip-hop tracks. Best of all, you can download them for free in the Soundcloud player. Cheers
Dr. Dre – Still California (Wick-it Moombahton Remix)
M.I.A. – Bad Girls (Wick-it Remix)
Meet MSD- an insane French dubstep producer. The song No Forgo has had smashing consequences at shows both in the UK and around the world. It’s so hot BBC Radio 1 has even been broadcasting it to unprepared civilians. If you’re ready to get your ears blown to a bloody pulp as you simultaneously smash your head back and forth on your keyboard, take a listen to the Habstrakt remix below. Afterwards if you have any brain cells left in your head, lock the name MSD in your mind because you’ll be hearing more… soon.Get the original and remixes here on Beatport which is currently #9 on the dub chart!
Oh its all about the jumpin!! Who is ready to Jump?? Yea I’m not just simply repeating the title of the song here guys. I’m serious… Who is ready to jump??? This Revolvr bootleg is so sick and it will definitely have you on your feet and jumping in seconds!! Don’t believe me? Hit the play but and check it out! Prepare to be amazed!!
Its no big secret that I like Delta Heavy, but I want it to be known that regardless of my mad respect and love for Delta Heavy, I do not post their songs for this reason alone. Delta Heavy quite possibly is one of the best and most innovative duos in their field. They do moombah, dubstep, drum and bass, and whats even better? Their songs don’t all sound the same. Each one is fresh, new, lively, and just plain old awesome. I enjoy pretty much every mix these guys come out with because their mixes are just genuinely that good. Their remix of Adam F’s – When The Rain Is Gone does nothing but help to prove my point. I know you guys will love this as much as I do! Enjoy
I love seeing new boundaries get pushed in music! What do you get when you mash up a dubstep beat with a classical violin? Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling that’s what. If you haven’t seen her by now, you must be new to the internet or something because her videos have gone viral. Normally violin and dubstep would probably result you clamping your ears, but Lindsey not only successfully mashes the two together, she also dances, performs acrobatic moves, and is incredibly attractive. Oh and the video has great cinematography that was shot in the Ice Castles of Colorado. So if the song itself doesn’t put you in a jovial mood, I guarantee the girl will. Take a listen above and get Crystallize now on iTunes or Direct Download.
Did Crystallize not catch your attention? Well how about Spontaneous Me (posted below) which is more electronic-based but just as vibrant and as the title suggests- EPIC! Get Spontaneous Me on iTunes or Direct Download. Cheers!
Okay so thanks to Nick Guarino over at http://www.thissongissick.com and his wonderful generosity, there is this killer 20 track mixtape. The festival was this past weekend and I hear from friends that it was amazing. So for those of you are unaware, the festival SnowBall features names like Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, and The Flaming Lips. It started in Vail, Colorado and expanded to SnowGlobe in Lake Tahoe, California, and SnowMont in Killington, Vermont. Last year Nick put out a mixtape as well, and it was immensely popular, so I have no doubt that this mix will be well received as well.
20 amazing songs from artists that played the festival like: Bassnectar, Major Lazer, Gramatik, Dillon Francis, Mimosa, Nit Grit, Two Fresh, Griz, and so many more!
Here is what Nick says: “We tried to create a mixtape that highlighted the heavy bass crushing acts, to the more soulful live acts, and everything in between. SnowBall is a great balanced festival, with enough electronic to tide you over, and I really feel we did a great job at highlighting that. Enjoy all of these unreleased tracks, exclusive downloads on songs that have been purchase only, and more. We really hope you take the time to listen to every track. Enjoy!”
So there ya go! Tons of thanks to Nick for this! Enjoy everyone
What an epic Wiz Khalifa remix. Not hesitating to put his own twist on thing, Sound Remedy adds a trippy bass line with some killer synths to Wiz Khalifa’s Get Sum. Definitely enhancing the song, and taking it to a whole new level! I’m a big fan of this remix. Plus there is a free download? What a great Monday! Add this one to your playlists peeps. Enjoy
Ugh Figure why must you be so good at what you do?? I literally get so stoked on life whenever he puts out a new track. This remix of Borgore’s (ft. Shay) – Flex just got me a little bit more excited than usual. That may perhaps because I am a fan of Borgore, but either way, he got my heart racing! If the thought of a Borgore remix didn’t get me amped up enough, the song sure as hell did. I could have quite possibly had a heart attack. This song, in true Figure fashion, goes into crazy, hyped up BEAST MODE. So like the boy scout motto says “always be prepared,” you may want to grab an extra clean pair of pants before you hit that play button. There is no telling the havoc this song is going to wreak on the world… but I can’t wait!
Once you fall in love, be sure to purchase on beatport
Oh whats up Kill the Noise? I see you over there partying with Datsik! When amazing DJs and producers get together and make sick beats like this, it always makes my day. First of all Kill the Noise is one of the most Dynamic of his kind. He can blend genres of dance music like you wouldn’t believe, and this song is just another one he can add to the ranks of amazing tracks he has produced. Second, Datsik just kills it… ALL THE TIME. Always supplying a crazy/unique/unexpected drop and a killer beat, you can tell he put his spin on this song too. Its just a great track that emphasizes everything that is great about both of the amazing contributers. I am nothing but pleased to share this with all of you! Also, it was just released about 2 days ago! Want the whole thing? Get it on beatport! Enjoy!!

If you find yourself free on Thursday March 15th, then you really need to come to the show.

Preview of the MADNESS to come
So for those of you who do not know who Merdan Taplak is, let me introduce you. From Antwerp, Belgium, he brings you some crazy beats the likes of which you probably have never heard before. Receiving numerous praises and being declared “to have joined the raving hotchpotch of like-minded artists such as Buraka Som Sistema and the wicked Diplo and his Mad Decent posse. His seething mishmash plays M.I.A. a nasty trick, while the Crookers eat their heart out with his pounding bass wobbles.” He is truly innovative. Mixing all genres of electronic dance music, he shows his versatility and unique ability to experiment in all areas of the dance music genre.
His album ”In It For The Honey” came out February 18th on PIAS and it includes guest appearances of Princess Superstar, The Glimmers, Fat Jon, Kraantje Pappie and more. Its definitely something you want to check out!
