Monday Goodies #5

1 Aug

I’m getting back into the swing of things after a little vacation over the weekend. The picture above was taken when I was backpacking in Sequoia and the trail passed by that unbelievable view. Anyway, here is some tunage to start your week off. If you have heard of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane,” the Hook N Sling & Goodwill track, “Take You Higher,” will sound very familiar. Gemini seems to never let me down with his massive, yet melodic, dubstep sound. The Brookes Brothers took drum and bass in a different, more subtle, direction with “Daybreak” and I like it a lot. Have a great week!

Hook N Sling, Goodwill- Take You Higher (Club Mix)

Gemini- Elevate

Brookes Brothers- Daybreak (feat. Tasha Baxter)

Ahh, I’m way too busy these days. Such a shame I can’t even enjoy the beach on a hot sunny day like today. Oh well… Good thing I have these tracks posted here to keep me occupied and happy. My favorite of this little pack is for sure “Madagasacar”. The others are excellent as well. Enjoy.

Goldfish

8 Dec

Dominic Peters and David Poole are the two men who make up the group Goldfish. Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, they’ve been taking the world by storm with their unique jazzy house beats. Goldfish is known for their live shows which incorporate double bass, saxophone, keyboards, flute, and vocals with samplers, effects, synths and they even keep true to their jazz roots with freeform improvisation. These guys have such a cool sound, and feel-good vibe to their music, it’s hard not to like them. These songs featured here are from their 2nd album, Perceptions of Pacha, released in 2008. I was having trouble narrowing down tracks to post from it because they are all excellent, so I recommend buying the whole thing! Big ups to my friend Roy bringing this awesome group to my attention! These are all must haves, enjoy.

Goldfish- Cruising Through

Goldfish- Soundtracks And Come Backs

Hard Haunted Mansion 2010

25 Oct

So It’s just about that time of year again for the great, Hard Haunted Mansion . Last year, I attended both nights of the Halloween mayhem, and had an incredible time. The highlights of my experience were the sets of A-trak, The Bloody Beetroots (DJ set), Deadmau5 (2 nights in a row!), and Justice. This year, the most anticipated artists are Rusko, Calvin Harris, Jack Beats, Boys Noize, The Bloody Beetroots (Live set), as well as A-trak. The first night, Saturday, is sold out so the Shrine will be filled to the brim with costume-wearing raver freaks! Get your glow-sticks ready and start making your kandi! Just kidding, neither apparently aren’t allowed! Anyway, here are some tunes to indulge in for the week!

Big Boi- Shutterbug (Jack Beats Remix)

Calvin Harris- You Used To Hold Me (S.Co & D’arrigo Bootleg)*Calvin Harris+Steve Angello’s Knas!

The Bloody Beetroots- Domino

DUB:

Pyramid ft. Julie Thompson- Cruel (SKisM Remix)***BIG!

Slum Dogz- For All Time*Rusko’s been droppin’ this one lately

The Social Network Club Scene

24 Oct

Yesterday, I finally got around to seeing The Social Network. The film itself was very good and I would for sure recommend it, but one thing that stood out was the song from the club scene. The system in the movie theater was more than competent to handle this house song and the booming bass definitely enhanced the experience. If you haven’t seen The Social Network and don’t know what I am talking about you should still check out this very clubby song!

Dennis de Laat- Sound of Violence (Main Mix)

Next Big Thing In Electro House: Porter Robinson

24 Oct

At the surprising age of 18 years, Porter Robinson is starting to make a name for himself in the Electronic music scene. His production sounds beyond his years and is more comparable to the older, more established, artists such as Wolfgang Garter. Porter Robinson has a unique style of combining Electro House, Progressive House, and even influences of Dubstep, into one mind-blowing masterpiece. Being so young, he has decades of performance and production ahead of him, so I recommend you get to know him now! (Interview from Gotta Dance Dirty)

For The Weekend: Afrojack, Swedish House Mafia

22 Oct

Afrojack has definitely been making his mark on the electronic scene this year. From Bonnaroo to the L.A. Electric Daisy Carnival , he’s been hittin’ people hard with his great production and better sets. The first song, “Bangduck Got It,” is a new bootleg of his own with “Bangduck” and the vocals from an Angger Dimas remix of “She got it” by Vandalism. The original was already awesome, so the vocals on top make it even better! Also, you might have heard one of his newer singles, “Take Over Control,” which an official video just came out for, and you can check out this remix of it that puts a different groovy vibe to it (without the laser gun sounding synths).

Afrojack- Bangduck Got It (Afrojack Bootleg)***

Afrojack ft. Eva Simons- Take Over Control (Ian Carey Remix)

Swedish House Mafia seems to never disappoint and this new edit of a Fedde Le Grand track is no exception. I think the title speaks for itself…(Hint: Empire of the Sun- Walking On A Dream/Eurythmics- Sweet Dreams)

Fedde Le Grand- Walking On A Sweet Dream (Swedish House Mafia Edit)

Bonus:

Imogen Heap- Hide & Seek (Otto Knows Remix)***Best Hide & Seek Remix I’ve heard

Also, if you haven’t heard already… Daft Punk made their first appearance in 3 years last night at a Phoenix show at the Madison Square Garden in New York. When I heard this news, naturally, I was overcome with jealousy of all who were lucky enough to be in attendance. Can’t wait for their tour next year!
