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!
An Irish Dance duo called known as The Control Freakz has our undivided attention today. They specialize in adding flavor, spice, and everything nice in their bootlegs. Two of said bootlegs really made our ears tingle. The first was Groove Armada’s Superstylin’ which is a classic. What’s added to this track is a more housey feel and makes me wanna kick it on a beach in the tropics. The second bootleg of interest is Lykke Li’s I Follow Rivers. In this track we get more of a happy dance vibe. Check them both out and download them for free below! Cheers

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!
