Been on a bit of a Kaskade bender ever since the drop of Fire & Ice, but honestly the singles that preceded the release were better than most of the rest on there.. So I’d just like to give a huge highfive to Le Castle Vania, a 26yo Georgia-boy who just dropped a really sweet remix of Turn It Down that, in spite of the title, requires you to turn it up. Just LISTEN to that solo at 2’17″…. EPIC!! Thanks @ BlahBlahBlahScience for the awesome share !

♬ Kaskade – Turn It Down (Le Castle Vania Remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Cee-Lo Green – Fuck You (Le Castle Vania Remix)

Alex Gaudino… alex gaudino… Ah, yes.. the memories of those heehaw-ing echoes of “Destination Calabria” bouncing off the walls of every club ’round the world in 2007 are coming back to me… Well Gaudino’s dropped another anthemic remix, The Wanted’s “Glad You Came”. Dance away! As backup, JapWOW’s courteously updated our Destination with a bit of a new spin.

♬ The Wanted – Glad You Came (Alex Gaudino remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Alex Gaudino – Destination Unknown (JapWOW Remix)

Happy dancing!

A big thanks to my buddy Keylime, at JamzNotJelly.com, for tuning me into this adolescent hipster duo. Autoérotique, the team of Toronto-natives Keith Robertson and Dave Henderson, produce some crazy stuff. Self described, after starting “as indie band producers, they hop-scotched over to dance music after receiving a marijuana-lubricated epiphany to Groove Armanda’s first album at the tenderized age of 17—only to be swallowed whole by the city’s burgeoning dance scene.” Quite a story, fellas.

The reason I post this?  Well if there’s anything you should know about me by now it’s that I’m a sucker for high-definition slow-motion capture; completely hypotized; sh*t’s amazing.  So combine this vid with the moombahton kick I’ve been on and I was sold on the spot when I heard the remix.  Honestly even more amazing is Keylime’s find of the Autoérotique remix to Tiësto’s new “Work Hard, Play Hard”– a seriously masterly work. (And agreed, so much better than the original!)

♬ Bottle – Texture Like Sun

This song sent me Shivers as I déjà-vu’d to when I first heard Coldplay, on good ol’ MTV back in the day (almost a decade now?? what?).  Anyway, it’s absolutely beautiful, and cool vid.

God this girl is sexy. Great originals, great covers, great remixes… The following is a remix combo by, my favorite, Jakwob and Etherwood, the latter an indisputable master as well, creating some of the most delicately chromatic, soulful dubstep. Their teamwork on Lana Del Rey’s super popular “Video Games” reflects both their wonderful styles, slowly blooming from basic tones into a complicated network of rising and fading upper melodies that really reverberate within.

♬ Lana Del Rey – Video Games (Jakwob and Etherwood Remix)
Originals: ♬ Lana Del Rey – Video Games

PatrickReza did a smash-hit remix of M83 and hasn’t left the blogs since. Now he’s gone and taken Lana’s Blue Jeans, waved his magic dubstep wand, and created an all-enveloping, strongly beautiful version all his own.

In just three short weeks, señor Tiësto is coming to New York City, and despite a grand tour of South America at hand, he continues to drop amazing mixes, including this one to give Fedde a run for his money…

A good festival recap vid sends shivers down my spine as the memories come flooding back — the friends, the music, the dancing; the weather, the time, the place — suddenly I’m walking the trampled parade-grounds of eZoo once again, hearing the echoes of Afrojack and Armin bouncing across the lawns…


★ Wynter Gordon – Invisible (Kaskade Remix)
♬ Swedish House Mafia – Save The World (Zedd Remix)

Here’s a runnerup Electric Zoo vid. I guess I’m obsessed.


♬ Calvin Harris – Feel So Close (Nero Remix)
★ Shift Four and Dirtyrock – More Unfamiliar ft. David Reed (Original Mix)

While I didn’t attend this festival, it just. looks. EPIC. Paris Hilton guest-DJing?! Okay well that part looks cheesy. But whatever. Next year…


♬ Porter Robinson – The Wildcat

Sometimes you need a song that just helps you breathe a little easier. Here’s one such tune, by “Koreless” of the U.K.. Interesting stuff.

★ Koreless – MTI

♬ Woodkid – Iron

This video is so cool– slow-motion shots of ferocious beasts and ever more vicious-lookin’ humans, snarlin’, slinging mud at Agyness Deyn, and getting pounced on by the “smoky Death Eaters of Harry Potter”, as my sister called them.

shake your moombah !

premiere post!

After digging around a bit, I discovered the ‘moombahton’ genre originates to a DJ who slowed down Afrojack’s Moombah and added a reggaeton-style beat. Kid was twenty and doing it for a friend’s house party.
