So rumor has it that skrillex lost a harddrive with a bunch of unmastered music on it while he was on tour. So I’m not sure about any of the info behind these tracks, but there are a few here. Good stuff too.
I’ve always had a funny feeling about skrillex though. Something about him just doesn’t work for me. Maybe I’ll write on that later. For now, check these out if you haven’t heard them already. Expect more from him soon. Seems like he’s got a lot to share this summer.
Skrillex – The Disco Rangers Bus (Knows How To Rock N Roll):
I’ve said this a ton of times and I’ll say it again. I’ve been fuckin’ lazy and unmotivated, hence the lack of posts. I even considered closing down the blog since I can’t access my old files on my other PC and the time and the cost of running this blog is greater than the satisfaction I get. Also, I’m not used to use my MacBook as my only computer. But, I’ll give it another shot.
I’ve got a ton of older songs that I want to share with you, I’m not totally updated with the newest releases and you prolly have seen these tunes elsewhere. Dunno, but I like these!
I love Hemingway. Not the novelist, but the guy who makes the most chilling yacht-y vibed disco tunes. His Slowburner mix has rocked my playlist for a few months now, I just love the funky moogy bass and the mellow pads with the arping melody that reminds me of the older Daft Punk. Seriously, check this out.
The French fidget monster duo, Mustard Pimp, are up to something big. According to the rumours, their debut album will feature other huge artists too like Skrillex and Jimmy Urine from Mindless Self Indulgence. Dim Mak sent me a preview of their upcoming release and I just thought that you might like it : )
I don’t know who this Rex guy is, but he make some nice tunes and mashups, especially this Wolfgang Gartner/Deadmau5 vs. Ke$ha mashup. Moved the crowd really nicely last time I played : ) heads up for my friend Lastdear for linking this.
Madeon is one sick French kid, not only did he win the Pendulum remix contest, he also managed to land a remix of Yelle’s Que Veux Tu on their upcoming release. I love the funky bass and the micro sampling in Madeon’s tunes. Funk Funk!
Dim Mak also sent me another tune, I don’t usually dig Dutch housy tracks, but I’ll post this ’cause it’s Dada Life and Bassjacker doesn’t use the fucking annoying vocal sampling 99% of the Dutch guys does, so, kudos to him too! Really, it has a nice melody and it’s cool.
Fedde Le Grand is the shit. No wait, take the word “the” out of that sentence. He’s just shit. But luckily Mightyfools manages the following track a bit. It’s an excellent sellout tune if you do those. I find it slightly annoying but blogworthy, you just might like it.
Haha oh wow, I guess I haven’t posted trance here like… ever? But I just happen to like the newest Final Fantasy game and this dude from USA called BetoCeba or something, made the most epic remix of the already good battle theme. I’ve been rocking to this song for months. Enjoy or burn.
I can’t really remember where I got this song from. Prolly from Dim Mak too. Silly guys, first they threat to sue me for over 20 000 USD and then they spam my mail. But it’s ok, since the music usually is at least good. But this tune is mad. Mad, I said!
This guy called Charles LowTon has the most fucked up name ever so I won’t even try to spell it here, but he’s from Poland and apparently it’s an awesome place to live if you wanna freeze make filthy electro (I oughta know, Finland ain’t that warm either #whatthefuckamIwriting). This guy knows how to distort those basslines, I downloaded almost all of his tunes and they were all great, I suggest you do the same. Google Charles LowTon, Imma too lazy to link :(
Hey hey yo yo, guess who has got a treat for ya all. Wolfgang Gartner and Joel aka. Deadmau5 made a collab track that has spread all through the blog-o-sphere as an untitled track. Well, get ya facts straight, the track Animal Rights, will be released the 6th of September on Beatport so keep ya eyes open =)
My exams are soon over and luckily we’ve got a week vacation straight after that, so now that I don’t have to stress about anything, I thought I might post some music for a change : ) btw I got my ad in the school paper ^^ yay on the back cover even.
First off, let’s start with a bit older track. It’s Sherlock’s Daughter’s Kids remixed by the wonderful Alison Wonderland and it was posted a bit over a week ago on Dödselectro and some other major blogs. Alison herself asked some people around to try and help her to boost the track up in the hypem charts, so here we are. If you like it, click here and show her some respect by loving the song : )
Everyone who knows me at least a bit, knows that I hate mainstream music. Anything that’s on MTV, Voice etc. is awful. No Fireflies, no Pokerface, you get the idea? But you know what? For maybe the first time in my life, I’ve found two remixes made of mainstream artists that are above decent! The first one is a brand new remix made by Redlight. If Redlight himself hadn’t approached me via myspace, I wouldn’t know who he is. But luckily he did, ’cause his tracks are solid gold. Seriously. Show him some serious love at his myspace.
The second excellent mainstream remix I’ve heard is made by no more than the great VIKING. I don’t know how many times I’ve said it, but so I don’t care: I LOVE VIKING! This is even better than his Shame On Me remix OMG! If Lady Gaga was always like this, I’d totally go her gigs. Just wait for the awesome lift @1min15
