Oh Those Savory Swedes…

Here in Seattle the persistent grey can really take a toll on our moods! Thank God for EDM to lift the spirits and kickstart energy levels! No one group of djs is better at helping me cope with the gloom than Swedish House Mafia.  Their album ‘Until One’ is a little over a year old but still absolutely incredible.

Every Other Way

This isn’t a new song, but its been one of those days that I’ve spent scrolling through old playlists and rediscovering some of the gems within them. Here’s a song originally done by BT, but this remix is done by DYM (Damn You Mongolians) and is simply magnificent. Hope you all enjoy the beauty within it as much as I do!

Adventure Club Dub

Dubstep lovers rejoice because below is a series of Adventure Club remixes and tracks.  If you have never listened to this hot Canadian duo, Christian Srigley & Leighton James, then you’re ears are definitely in for a treat.

Mercy

Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus, from Helsinki, Finland, are the Scandanavian duo behind Super8 and Tab and taking the trance world by storm.  Take a listen to one of my favorite tracks from them ‘Mercy’ remixed by Alex Kunnari.

Protect IP Act

It’s a bill tailored by the the entertainment industry to try and stop pirating of music and movies on the web, but is positioning itself to disrupt how we use the internet day to day…

What our generation does on a daily basis would incur huge penalties, fines, and possibly jail time for simply trying to spread the music we love to the masses. Trying to hype new songs, artists, and albums would be infringements that give private corporations the ability to block OUR blog(s). It’s an unprecedented bill that is being fast-tracked through Congress in the dark of night and should be spread through the same facets that it’s trying to hinder!

Some more food for thought on this disturbing topic:

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that’s for a fix that won’t work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

We can’t just stand by, like the corporations are expecting us to… let us stand united and fight this together! Go to the website below and fill out the information it needs to help support the cause.

Raise Your Head

You can’t completely dislike the winter months, especially when you have all your favorite artists back in the studio producing new tracks. Here’s a brand new one from Alesso that should help you shake the cold and from what I understand he is currently making some new songs with The Swedish House Mafia Part II, or better known as Max Vangeli & AN21.

Hitting You With The Continuous Flow

This is without a doubt one of Europe’s hottest Drum & Bass artists and if you haven’t heard a lot about him here in the States, then it’s about time! Netsky has been making some huge waves out of Belgium with his tracks and this Essential Mix allows for you to get a real feel of how skillful he is at the turntables. Just listen and make sure you have a couple of hours to keep your feet moving!

This song is featured in his Essential Mix, but is definitely worth the solo download:

Be Serenaded…

Trance is known for the incredible vocalists featured in their tracks.  Zoe Johnston and Cristina Soto fit the bill.  The club mixes of these two songs have been on repeat for me for weeks now and I thought I’d share.  Be serenaded…
