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.

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.

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’.

Avicii’s Studio 54 Live Set

This past week Avicii secured his spot in the EDM history books by rocking the legendary Studio 54 Nightclub in NYC. Studio 54 was known for it’s lavish parties during the 70’s and 80’s, but was shut down in the 90’s and converted into a minor theater. Well that all changed on the 18th of October when SiriusXM and Avicii teamed up to throw a one night only show at the legendary location.

‘new york, good to be back! playin legendary Studio 54 that opens up for 1 more night tmrw with@siriusxm! waka waka wakaaa’ – Via Twitter

If that isn’t incredible enough, Tim also announced this from his FaceBook page:

‘NYC – see you tonight at the original STUDIO 54 location. The doormen ensured me they will let 100 people in from the street in addition to the insane guest list! Hope they are my fans! ♥

Tonight we’re part of music history?!’

Whoever those lucky 100 people were definitely got the experience of a lifetime! Without further ado, here’s the #6 DJ in the WORLD’s set, so crank the volume and enjoy.

Switchfoot – Always

This is probably my favorite song on Kaskade‘s recent Essential Mix, which is saying a lot with the quality of the tracks that he put into that session. If you haven’t listened to his Essential Mix yet -> click here and it’s track 33 remixed by Max Vangeli & AN21. These two do an incredible job of keeping the songs integrity, while giving it just the right injection of house. Hope you enjoy!

Double Trouble

Ohhhhh man here we go – Laidback Luke and Sander van Doorn have teamed up for a track of epic proportions.  Earlier today on SoundCloud a clip of the dynamic duo’s latest track “Who’s Wearing the Cap?” was shared from Sanders latest album release, ‘Eleve11’. Take a listen to this track, which in my opinion, bassheads, househeads, and trance lovers alike will enjoy! Bumpin’ bass drops at 1:14…..

Via Soundcloud, “The banging track where trance meets the progressive and blends into electro has its own story. Luke and Sander were once photographed together and one of them was wearing the cap. And since both were often claimed to look alike, the fans started the whole discussion trying to guess “who’s wearing the cap”, Luke or Sander. That story later brought both house masters together to produce the next smashing track and to call it “Who’s Wearing The Cap”.”

Rain Over Me Natural Disaster

Laidback Luke uploaded two tracks to his SoundCloud today, his track ‘Natural Disaster’ with Example and also a NEW track a remix of ‘Rain Over Me’ by Pitbull and Marc Anthony.

I have ANOTHER treat for you guys which is an interview with Example and Laidback Luke answering questions from YOU GUYS! (Their fans of course!)

If you want more Laidback Luke and Example check out a mini documentary with them in Ibiza (it does feature some of the same material as in the interview but VERY worth the watch!)

Lastly, check out the ‘Natural Disaster’ official video….

 

Fire & Ice

It’s always a good sign when you watch a teaser trailer and it sends shivers of excitement down your spine. I’m sure many of you know this familiar feeling and that it usually corresponds with something so irresistible that you can’t wait any longer for it. Kaskade has always been an artist at the pinnacle of DJing and producing here in the states. Always pushing his music to reach for greatness, while shaping the entire EDM community with the quality of his tracks. The album, ‘Fire & Ice’, is set to release on iTunes the 25th of October and will surely help to get us through the Winter season.

‘This album represents the last ten years of my career, all the miles traveled, the shows that I’ve played, the people that I’ve met, and the memories I’ve made.’ – Kaskade

Can’t get enough? Yeah, neither can we! Here’s a little more from Kaskade in the studio. He gives the audience a feel of how much really went into this album and also the many fantastic collaborations that are going to be incorporated into this double-disc release.

A Night Like This

Sometimes there are music videos that simply take your breath away and it may not be because there was a huge production cost involved, but rather the song doesn’t need something so gaudy to make it perfect. This is one of those videos.

A Night Like This

While we’re at it, why not let you explore one of the most joyful Kyau & Albert songs that allows you to compare the range of emotion that this duo bring to the EDM scene. Simply incredible!

On The Way
