Moombahton: Rusko- Everyday (BOYFRIEND edit)

21 Apr

I think I am officially a moombahton addict… I’ve been losing sleep because I haven’t been able to have my fix. It’s coming to be a big problem of mine and it is getting in the way of my relationships with other genres of electronic music. I hope house, trance, and dubstep aren’t too mad at me because I don’t think I’m ever going back…

After premiering the new track at Together As One, Rusko‘s “Everyday” is finally here! I’d been dying to have it in full quality so I could play it loudly through my speakers, and now it can be done. I have included Netsky‘s huge drumstep remix, as well as Original Sin‘s mix. Enjoy!

Rusko- Everyday (Netsky Remix)

23 Mar

Ever since I first heard that Rusko was getting Netsky on board for an “Everyday” remix, I haven’t been able to sleep at night due to my excitement. Netsky is definitely one of my favorite drum & bass producers and he further solidifies that position with taking the genre to new heights with this remix! Mark your calendars for the April 5th release of Rusko’s Everyday EP!

Netsky- Memory Lane***

This song is sick! I had known about it for some time, but I could never find a good quality version of it. It recently just leaked, so it is finally here for you all to get down to! Lick The Lizard!

Soldier of Luchini (Camp Lo X Rusko X The Temper Trap)

18 Jan

I posted the Rusko remix of The Temper Trap’s “Soldier On” a while ago and today I found a cool update on the track. Mr Physix added hip-hop into the equation, bringing in some rap to go along with the Rusko and Temper Trap. Check it out.

Recent Dub

8 Dec

When House music fails me, Dubstep is usually there to step up, but in this case its the opposite. There has been a lot of good House released lately, but not so much Dub. Here are some tracks I’ve been listening to. Enjoy.

Rusko- I Turn The Lights Down

Talay Riley- Sergeant Smash (Roksonix Remix)

Terravita- Up In The Club

Mash Ups: Basic Physics

9 Nov

Basic Physics is a 3-person DJ contingent based out of Madison, Wisconsin and Minneapolis, Minnesota. You may have heard of them through their “Ghosts On a G6 (Deadmau5 x Far East Movement)” remix that Allione had found previously, and immediately brought it to my attention that it was the same artists who did both that mash up as well as the first song in this post. Basic Physics does a great job with mash ups and you won’t be disappointed by these familiar tracks that go together very well! Also, I just want to give a shout out to a man that is doing wonderful things up at UCSB and his name is Michael Epstein. Keep doin’ what you’re doin’!

Basic Physics- Stuntin with a Milli (Lil Wayne x Phoenix x Pretty Lights)

Basic Physics- Kryptonite in Cali *Featuring Rusko’s “Da Cali Anthem”

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!

The Temper Trap: Conditions Remixed

1 Nov

Today, The Temper Trap released a remix version of their debut release Conditions. The Australian natives have had a great deal of success this past year with that initial album and now have decided to give fans an update on songs that seem to get better with age. The Conditions Remixed album generally has more of an electronic sound that gives a great twist to the songs that were originally recorded with the standard rock instruments. The whole album can be streamed here but I’ve included three of the better tracks for download! All of these are must haves and be sure to check out the bonus!

The Temper Trap- Soldier On (Rusko Remix)

The Temper Trap- Down River (Fool’s Gold Remix)

The Temper Trap- Resurrection (Penguin Prison Remix)

Bonus:

Another Fool’s Gold remix of a Local Natives song!

Local Natives- Wide Eyes (Fool’s Gold Remix) (Feat. Aristotle Pop A Bottle)

Vocal Dubstep: Sunday Girl (Ft. Rusko, Diplo)

28 Oct

Sunday Girl, also known as Jade Williams, is just a 21-year-old singer from the U.K. When she first dabbled with the idea of being a vocalist, she would sing in the privacy of her own room, too afraid to sing in front of anyone. Her fear overtook her so much so that at the age of 17, her mom took her to a hypnotist to cure her irrationalities. If it wasn’t for her smart mother, she would not be coming through our speakers today. The U.K. publication, The Gaurdian, describes her sound as, “melancholic yet uplifting,” which proves to be a perfect combination with dubstep music. Reminiscent of Ellie Goulding, Sunday Girl can definitely stand her ground with her aim to “feel like a wall of beautiful sound,” which she executes perfectly.(One to watch: Sunday Girl) I’ve included a new release as well as an older track, both with a soothing mellow vibe, enjoy!

Sunday Girl vs. Rusko- Stop Hey (Club Mix)***New release

Sunday Girl- Four Floors (Diplo Remix)***

Bonus:

Deadmau5 performed an unreleased dubstep remix with a singer named Robyn at the VMA’s last month on MTV! Here’s the only version (a ripped edit) on the internet of the song!

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
