Summer Vibes (Wolfgang Gartner, Axwell, Pretty Lights, ///Bones)

26 Jun

This morning, I pleasantly woke up to beaming sunshine coming through my window. It’s always a good start to the day when I can see nothing but blue skies and feel the warm air. Anyway, it has been an eventful weekend with Dada Life, Hardwell, Mr. White, Andy D’Arrigo, and ///Bones on Friday at the Avalon and a Dodger game yesterday. I’m feeling some summer vibes today, so I thought I’d let you feel the same. These should do the trick…

Bonus:

///Bones released his fresh Summer 2011 mix last week and it’s nothing but quality. You really can’t go wrong with tribal beats, electro, and even some disco house. Enjoy.

Monday Goodies (Dillon Francis, Thomas Gold, Duck Sauce)

20 Jun

Starting off the week is always an interesting process, but today wasn’t so bad. I know that some good music can go a long way if you’re not really feelin’ it, so I have a few tracks that should bring up your mood a bit whether or not you need it. Dillon Francis just put out this new remix and I will warn you that it is quite the moombahton rave tune. Thomas Gold‘s remix of “Set Fire To The Rain” is fire and Viceroy‘s edit of “Goody Two Shoes” brings a smile to my face every time. Enjoy.

Oh Land- Son of a Gun

19 May

Singer/songwriter Nanna Øland Fabricius gives dance-pop a refreshing twist as performer, Oh Land. Her single, “Son of a Gun,” uses catchy vocal samples and a beat with some swing in it to make something reminiscent of Adele’s talent. Listen and judge for yourselves.

Adele- Rolling in the Deep Remixes

17 May

This post was inevitable. It seems everyone wants a piece of the very talented blueswoman’s mega hit “Rolling in the Deep”. As a result, some impressive remixes have been released over the last few months. Here are a few of my favorites.

First up is solid dubstep remix by MartyParty and Minnesota’s new project, Darkstar. This remix is heavy and melodic–everything I want dubstep to be.

Next is a crazy mash by The Heatwave. It gives Adele’s song a complete spin into a summertime, island, reggae jam.

Last is my favorite house remix which comes courtesy of up-n-commer David Berrie. The buildups are long and the drop is hard. Expect this one at Sharkeez tonight ladies and gentlemen! (Party begins every Tuesday, 10 pm, at 3600 Highland Ave, Manhattan Beach)

Adele- Set Fire To The Rain (Plastic Plates Remix)

25 Apr

Plastic Plates is a producer originally from Australia, but currently resides in Los Angeles. He makes some indie/nu-disco electronic music similar to The Magician or Treasure Fingers. I like Adele a lot, so I may be a bit biased, but this is a great remix!

Avicii is too good to be true. He has already had a huge year and we’re only four months in. I wouldn’t be surprised if he shoots up in ranking on DJ Magazines Top 100 DJ’s next year. Check out these latest goodies!

John Legend- Rolling In The Deep (Adele Cover)

24 Mar

Ain’t nothin’ like soul! John Legend did this acapella cover of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and it is great. You know a singer is good when you don’t even need instrumentation to sing over. Pretty Impressive. John Legend came to my school (Loyola Marymount University) a couple of weeks ago, but I, unfortunately, was unable to attend. I guess this cover eases the pain a little bit.

Adele- Someone Like You (The Neon Lights Remix)

9 Mar

Adele has definitely been getting more press as of late and it is well deserved. This Neon Lights remix of her track “Someone Like You” is pretty darn good. It starts off a little weak but it picks up once the main synth is introduced at about the 0:56 mark. Stay CNCT’D.

Adele vs. Jay-Z vs. Biggie- Rolling In The Deep (Voodoo Farm Remix)

18 Dec

After this somewhat lacking week, WEST LA CNCT is getting back into full swing! Today, I came across a dubstep style song that’s pretty cool. Voodoo Farm is a producer out of Brooklyn, NY, and he made this remix, “Rolling In The Deep”. Adele’s sampled vocals are awesome and with the addition of  Jay-Z and Biggie verses, you can’t go wrong. Not to mention the great beat that all of that is on top of. This one’s a keeper, check it out!
