My Guilty Pleasure? Mashups!

My guilty pleasure? I absolutely LOVE mashups.  Nothing is better to crank up on rainy mornings when you have to get up for school or work!

When it comes to mashups no one does it better than 3LAU. Pronounced “BLAU” after Justin Blau, a mashup and house producer from Las Vegas, Nevada.  He is the official house dj for fratmusic.com and the buzz on 3LAU is that he is White Panda’s (another well-known mashup artist) biggest competition check out an article about that here.

You can download all his tracks for free on his SOUNDCLOUD

And watch his videos on his YouTube channel

Here are some of my favorite tracks off his album Dance Floor Filth:

“Jaggerbomb”

“Inspired by Rehab [A Tribute to Amy Winehouse]”

“Girls Who Save the World”

“All Night Long”

 

 

 

 

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:
