House Catch-up (Afrojack, Avicii, Darth & Vader, Benny Benassi)

9 May

Last week was a rough one with all of my finals and school coming to an end. I didn’t have as much time to post as I would have liked to, so I’m playing catch-up today. There were so many releases from big names, all of which are tunes that will surely be heard quite a bit this summer. The Avicii and the Afrojack & R3hab are definitely my top picks in this little pack. Start the week off strong with these bangers!

Afrojack & R3hab- Aces High Prutata (Original Mix)

Avicii- Levels (ID) (Original Mix)

Darth & Vader- Return Of The Jedi (Original Mix)

Benny Benassi Ft. Clinton Sparks- Watch You

Laidback Luke & Steve Aoki feat. Lil Jon- Turbulence Remixes

28 Apr

As if the original mix of “Turbulence” wasn’t big enough already, here are two huge remixes! Steve Aoki definitely dropped the Sidney Samson remix the other night at the Musication show at the Avalon Hollywood and the crowd went wild. The Tocadisco remix is also a banger, so check these out and don’t miss the new Laidback track as the bonus!

Al Bizzare- Fresh Scream (Original Mix)

14 Apr

Electro house is getting crazier and crazier. Al Bizzare‘s “Flesh Scream” is absolutely ridiculous. It definitely has a Porter Robinson type sound, but it is a unique production. This is a must have!

Ian Carey feat. Bobby Anthony & Snoop Dogg- Last Night Remixes

1 Mar

I heard the preview of the Afrojack remix of “Last Night” a couple of weeks ago and I thought the sampling was a bit questionable. Now the tune is finally out and I wonder if Afrojack was really taking this remix seriously… Just listen and you’ll know what mean. As for the Spencer & Hill mix, it’s interesting hearing S-N-Double O-P over some heavy electro, but it’s pretty good. Check it out.

Tommy Trash and Tom Piper- All My Friends

6 Dec

It’s monday- bad. It’s sunny- good. It’s WEST LA CNCT’s 100th post- excellent! It has been almost two months of blogging and there is definitely a lot more to come! I hope you are all staying CNCT’D and of course, spreading the love and sharing the wealth! Don’t forget to “like” our Facebook if you haven’t already! Anyway, Tommy Trash and Tom Piper’s tune, “All My Friends,” is a pretty cool track that I like a lot. It’s solid Electro House with catchy vocals reminiscent of Justice’s “We Are Your Friends”. I hope you all enjoy this tune and I just wanted to thank you for sticking with WEST LA CNCT through thick and thin, you are appreciated!

Hard Haunted Mansion Recap

2 Nov

Harder Stage- Special guest: Miike Snow (DJ-set)So I kept telling myself that I wasn’t going to go to Hard this year, sadly, due to other priorities, but Sunday afternoon a friend convinced me to go. I definitely made a great decision despite the fact that I am writing this post severely deprived of sleep, but it was worth it. Anyway, I was only in attendance Sunday night but I know many people who went Saturday. The people I have talked to say the best sets were from Rusko and the Bloody Beetroots. Sunday night, my favorites were A-trak, the special guest, Miike Snow (DJ-set), and Boys Noize closing the Halloweekend all the way from Deutschland. This years production, at the inside stage and outside stage, was definitely an improvement on last years although they were lacking some necessities (LASERS!). The crowd in attendance were the typical L.A. party people creating a good festive vibe for the night. I’ve heard Saturday was an awesome time and Sunday definitely was as well, so I’d say it was a very successful Hard Haunted Mansion! As a recap, here are some songs you might have jumped around to, pumped your fist to, or even danced around to with movements foreign to many onlookers!

Flux Pavilion- Lines In Wax Ft. Foreign Beggars***Rusko opened up with this dub banger

Cassius- I Love You So (TROWA Remix)***Busy P dropped the original mix of this one, but I like this dubstep version better!

Boys Noize- Yeah*Heard multiple times Sunday night

The Chemical Brothers- Dissolve (Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Rogerseventytwo- Take Me Higher*Disco House, courtesy of A-trak, mixed in with a little Duck Sauce

Here’s a little clip of the madness just in case you missed it!

Finally, Mr. Mau5!

1 Nov

Finally, Deadmau5 has released “Sofi Needs a Ladder”!  In September last year, the earliest forms of this song began to circle around the internet under the title, “ You Need a Ladder“.  It featured extended samples of the Zelda theme song and a heavy electro house beat.  The song resurfaced at Coachella 2010 amidst Deadmau5’5 EPIC performance (This was the debut of his “cube” light setup).  The Zelda samples were no longer included, but a distinct female voice now punched throughout the song.  This voice belonged to none other than Tommy Lee’s girlfriend, Sofi, whose name is an acronym for “Some Other Female Interest”.

At the end of last month, a remix contest began for “Sofi Needs a Ladder”.  The winner, which will be announced November 23, will receive an opening spot for Deadmau5 on his upcoming tour.  A creative electro remix by contestants Caudill & Turnipseed is included in the inaugural West LA Cnct post.   “Sofi Needs a Ladder” will be included in Deadmau5’5 upcoming album, 4 x 4= 12, released on December 6th.  Check out the full track listing at Consequence of Sound.

Congratulations Erol Alkan!

28 Oct

If you are not familiar with him, Erol Alkan is an world-renowned Electro House DJ from London, England.  Erol is an incredibly dynamic performer as well as a talented producer.  His track with Boys Noize, Lemonade, is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!  Once that squelchy synth kicks in, its hard not to jump around, no matter where your listening to the song.  Lucky for us, he has made another hit.  MGMT’s most recent single, “Congratulations”, has never sounded so good.  It has dreamy, psychedelic vocals that will bounce in your head and enough groove to make your parents wish they were back at the roller disco.  Be sure to buy it when it comes out November 23!  But if you can not wait that long, download the full version now exclusively from West LA Cnct!!

Moar Hard Posts n Stuff

26 Oct


There are only 256 more hours until the light-filled, bass-heavy, kandi-flying spectacular that will be HARD Haunted Mansion 2010 finally begins!  In honor of this, here are a couple tracks by two artists that are guaranteed to make a bang this year.

First off is a new track from the UK dubstep duo Nero. True to the style in their other hit productions, “Me and You” brings the classic Nero blend of rock and up-tempo dubstep.

Nero- Me and You

Boys Noize is never one to let an audience down. His unique blend of nu-disco and electro house has the special ability to keep the crowd jammin’ for hours.  The Chemical Brothers released an album named Further earlier this summer, and Boys Noize has reinvented its hit single, “Swoon”, in a wonderfully funky and melodic way. This song is a must have!

Finally, It is my pleasure to announce that the url of West LA Cnct is no longer westlacnct.wordpress.com, but westlacnct.com!
