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.

How The House Should Be Smashed

If you were to search this blog, then you’d know that I have an obsession with this brother duo – Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Every since I heard their Tomorrowland set they’ve been sky rocketing their fan base and have begun their first ever U.S. Tour. Sadly they haven’t made it to the city of Seattle yet, but the clips from their shows in South Beach, Vegas, and L.A. showcase their ability to make shows astounding. Hopefully when these guys get a schedule for shows next year we’ll be able to track them down.

Stars Come Out

And BOY do they ever…  Check this teaser for Zedd’s killer new track ‘Stars Come Out’ being released through Dim Mak records on November 22nd.  Gorgeous vocals, beautiful drops and bangin bass.

 

UPDATED: November 22, 2011

The wait is over! If the teaser wasn’t enough for you, then that’s perfect, because it wasn’t enough for us either. Here’s the full version of the song and it’s an incredible track, so make sure to grab it off here and listen.

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.

An EDM Laundry List

Alrighty ya’ll so I have got everything from mainstream to movie trailers to remixes to dubstep and trance.

This LMFAO track is a few months old but after recently hearing R3HAB’s super sexy remix of it I decided to check out the original video and it is definitely worth the watch.

Nothing But the Best

Regardless of whether or not you agree with David Guetta’s new reign as the world’s number one dj, there is no doubt that he is a musical genius and a dance music pioneer.  Check out a trailer for a film about D Guetta: past, present and future.

“Nothing But the Beat is the story of David Guetta and house music, as told by himself, his fans and the legions of legendary artists that he’s worked with. The documentary focuses on Guetta and his unstoppable fire to create incredible dance music, fueled by an overwhelming passion and ambition to be the best. This is the official trailer.”

Example – Midnight Run

Example is known for their massive collaboration with Laidback Luke with their track ‘Natural Disaster’.  They just released the official video for their latest single ‘Midnight Run’ and below is Flux Pavilion’s remix.

Example – Midnight Run (Flux Pavilion Remix)

Modestep – Sunlight

Modestep is a fairly new dubstep and electronic band from London.  This is one of their most popular tracks with a whacky video to boot.

Gareth Emery – Tokyo

This is Gareth Emery’s latest track.  The official release date is December 5th.  I have to say it’s not what I was expecting so definitely take a listen and leave a comment with your opinion!

Boom Jinx ft. Justine Suissa – Phoenix From the Flames (Club Mix) 

Any track that has vocals from Justine Suissa is bound to be amazing and this track is nothing short of just that.

Tantalizing Treats for Tuesday

AN21 & Max Vangeli, R3HAB, Tiesto, Avicii, Pete Tong and Dirty South? Absolutely.

First I have AN21 (Antione Josefsson – Steve Angello’s younger brother) & Max Vangeli’s Essential Mix that aired on the fifth.  Their debut album should be released in the near future and we can expect to hear some collaborations with Dirty South and Example.

An21 & Max Vangeli – Essential Mix – 11/5/11

 

Next I have R3HAB’s set from Escape from Wonderland with free download available by clicking on the downward facing arrow to the right.

For those of us aching to relive Freaknight Festival or are simply enamored with the renowned Tiesto I have a live set from him in LA.

Tiesto – Live at Home Depot Stadium in Los Angeles

Next is a clip of what is said to be Avicii’s latest remix of Eric Turner’s ‘Dancing In My Head’.

We all know and love the host of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix: Pete Tong.  Well this two hour set is by the man himself and below is his ‘essential selection’.

And lastly Dirty South’s take on Nero’s ‘Me and You’.

Aural Psynapse

Finally Deadmau5 has released the rest of an old track that was leaked a while back however was incomplete.

Deadmau5 | Aural Psynapse (2nd Edit)

Now we find some of the good old Deadmau5 channeled into the 8 minute long ‘Aural Psynapse‘.  If you loved ‘Strobe’ or  ‘HR 8938 Cephei’ then this is exactly the dessert you were looking for.
