Picking Your Monday Up

Mondays can always be the start of that slow push for the weekend. It seems to be never ending and it’s only just the beginning! This is true for most week starting Mondays…unless you live in Seattle. Well then it’s the peak of anticipation the day before Skrillex lands his Mothership Tour, which leaves only 3 days before the jaw dropping lineup of FreakNight! Here’s some music to get the anticipation to boil over.

This first track is a brand new Eric Prydz remix of the Digitalism song, ‘Circles’.

Circles (Eric Prydz Remix)

Now I know this song isn’t new, but it’s an absolute killer from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike that hasn’t really been heard by too many.

Champagne Showers (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Tomorrowland Mix)

Up next we have a remix from Star One of the track, ‘Earthquake’. The original’s done by Labrinth and features Tinie Tempah (but this is one of the versions we prefer more)

The original to this song is getting a TON of airtime all over the globe, so it was just a matter of time before someone took it to extended cut! For the last song we have Chuckie with his extended mix of Calvin Harris & Rihanna, ‘We Found Love’.

Chuckie also released his full set from LIV Miami for free via SoundCloud today, but we’ve simplified even having to get it from there by getting it right here!

‘My LIVE SET from 22-10-2011 at LIV, Miami…
too bad that in this set the noise of the crowd isn’t recorded.Also, the microphone was connected on the main mixer so it didn’t record my voice, in stead you hear fades in the music.. but who cares…Real shitty live mixing included too! Hahaha! Enjoy!
Let me know what tracks you want ID’d..’ – Via Chuckie’s SoundCloud

BONUS:

In honor of Coldplay releasing their new album, ‘Mylo Xyloto’, here’s one of Avicii‘s new remixes to the track ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall’.

UPDATE 10-25-11:

Why not add a little more House to the mix with a live set from the Double L’s himself!? Laidback Luke always strings together sets that will keep you on your feet and is probably one of my favorite DJ’s to hear live.

Do The Dada

Sadly, when we hit Global Dance Festival on our road trip to Colorado,  there were many DJ’s that had overlapping set times, so we struggled with the decision to try and catch Dada Life or stick with our man Avicii.  Even though we went with Avicii, our luck has paid off and it seems that Dada Life has found their way to us!  This Halloween, several months after Global Dance, FreakNight at WaMu Theater will be boasting a hefty lineup that includes Dada Life. Although the whole lineup is absolutely BANANAS we were ecstatic to see Dada on the bill! Many show-goers may not know the group Dada Life, however this pair brings about a frenzy at any show they play, whether that be champagne blasting into the crowd, their rowdy stage antics, or their dark Electro-House bangers. These guys are just the fit for FreakNight, so let us bring you up with some tracks/videos that display just how creepily amazing they are.

Note: ‘Let’s Get Bleeped Tonight’ and ‘Unleash The Fucking Dada’ exemplify Dada’s signature horror factor

These guys love to hype their crowds up.  If you still don’t agree with me saying that this duo is BANANAS, then check out this video from a live show turned music video for the song ‘Happy Violence’.

How could you even attempt to follow something like that?  How about with a teaser of their vocal version of the song that was just captured from the historic College Invasion Tour show put on at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA.

(The singer on the track hasn’t been identified yet, but we have a sneaking suspicion that it’s Nervo from the sounds of it.)

The set that’s going to be put on by these two is sure to be high energy, highly insane, and perfectly fitting for this years FreakNight. We’ll be sure to catch a front row seat for the champagne shower and have plenty of bananas as retaliatory ammunition!

Knife Party

If you haven’t heard of these guys then get on it, because they’re gaining fans at an EPIC pace (and for good reason)! About a month ago, I posted a song of theirs entitled ‘Zoology‘ that not only features Skrillex, but has been getting some major attention. Since then, they’ve been hard at work, building up their music repertoire. With an upcoming EP titled “100% No Modern Talking” (featuring four brand new tracks) , an additional feature on Porter Robinson’s EP ‘Spitfire’ with a remix of the track ‘Unison’, and a new track with none other than Swedish House Mafia called ‘Antidote’; they have definitely been busy.

Still have no idea who I’m talking about? Maybe a little background on them will leave you pleasantly surprised. Knife Party is a new project of Pendulum duo Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen and it’s a project they’ve managed to keep very low on the radar. With this in mind, our fingers are crossed that Pendulum might drop a couple new tracks at Freaknight here in Seattle, less than a month from now. Can’t wait to see what happens, but until then we hope this collection of tracks will more than suffice!

Unison (Knife Party Remix)

Antidote

Zoology

Although all of the songs above give you a taste of what these two have to offer, why not just fully immerse yourself in Knife Party with their exclusive UKF Bass Culture artist mix and yes, it goes ridiculously hard!

Trance FTW

The massive trance duo Cosmic Gate will be in Seattle on Friday, October 28th at FREAKNIGHT along with Tiesto!  If you have never heard Cosmic Gate before it is time to start listening to them because they are incredible.  Be sure to check out their ASOT 500 set and BBC Radio One’s Essential Mixes!

Here is one of their classic’s:

Flashback Fridays – Take One

Seattle just got some stellar news delivered when USC Events announced that Tiesto will be headlining Freaknight2011 this year.

There has been much discussion on if he’s appropriate for the theme, but this isn’t his first go at this Seattle classic and he’s seasoned at playing to his crowds. Rest assured that he’ll throw down and we can’t wait! In honor of this let’s travel back to one of his old tracks on our very first flashback Friday.
