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’.

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….

 

The man, the myth, the legend ….Laidback Luke.

In my opinion Laidback Luke’s INCREDIBLE talents are rather understated.  Laidback Luke aka Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen is a Dutch dj and producer.  I have had the pleasure of seeing Laidback Luke twice and each time I have been massively blown away.  Not only are his killer electro house beats electrifying but LL has this amazing ability to spin what’s hot, funky, and fresh into flawless sensational sets.  His sets tell a story from start to finish and they always leave you wanting more.  I love how LL’s quirky sense of humor tends to creep into his sets and beats effortlessly amusing the audience.  What else makes Laidback Luke so awesome besides his insight for the next hottest sound and outrageous talents behind the turntables?  It is his inherent ability to connect with the audience – he can do it with any crowd, in any place.  Laidback Luke is an absolute genius with heart.

Now with all that said here are download links for live sets from one of my all time FAVORITE djs:

Electric Daisy Carnival 2011 

Coachella Music Festival 2011

Ultra Music Festival 2011 

BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix 2011
