One of my all-time favorite music blogs, Dancing Astronaut, has produced some pretty epic video recaps for the recent Friday and Saturday of Electric Daisy Carnival at the MetLife stadium. With great accompanying tracks to boot, these vids are spine-tinglingly good!! While I’m gettin’ around to scripting my own review, enjoy these, after the jump…

Milo & Otis

Self-described “two dudes from Afratca,” the mysterious Milo & Otis (yes, that’s actually their group’s name) created this lovely reincarnate of the anthemic “We Are Your Friends” that makes us all feel so warm and happy when we arrive at our late-night events. Though to be honest, I can’t tell if this is a remix of “We Are Your Friends” so much as a whole new song entirely… Either way, we are your friends, and you’ll never be alone again :)

★ Milo & Otis – Friendly City
Backup beat: ★ Milo & Otis – Luck (Original Mix)

Project 46

The Canadians of Project 46, another secretive DJ team who most recently produced that awesome Fatboy Slim-Alesso mashup of “Praise You” with “Years”, have released a blissfully happy new original. Just try frowning at lyrics like, “the sun won’t ask the world if it can rise”… And less than 24 hours ago, they released a poppy new version of Deadmau5’s new single, “The Veldt,” which I also just blogged— so that was dang fast!

★ Project 46 – Reasons (ft. Andrew Allen) (Original Mix)
Backup beat: ♬ Deadmau5 – The Veldt (Project 46 Happy Technology Pancake)


Fare Soldi

Ahh… what to say about two of my all-time favorites, Fare Soldi… This glamorous dirty-disco duo of Italians Santana Pasta (no joke) and Luka Carnifull describe their mission as taking “their experience on the decks to investigate if happy people dance better”. Well, sounds good enough to me!

★ Fare Soldi – Tu Night (Original Mix) or $
Backup beat: ★ Beyoncé – Crazy in Love (Fare Soldi ‘Chiapponzilla’ Remix)

Always loved crazy Brooklynite Oh Land, aka Nanna Oland Fabricius (there’s a mouthful), especially this wacky video for her hit, “White Nights”… Her song “Sun of a Gun” was also a big fave, but I couldn’t decide which of the two following remixes I liked more, so why dontcha help me out… Once you’ve voted, click the link again to download, or refresh the page to bring back the playing mode :)

“fuckmylife,” aka Deadmau5 (aka Canadian Joel Zimmerman), has updated his SoundCloud with four — count ’em, FOUR — brand new originals! Being his usual goofball self, he’s described them as “SimpsonStep,” “StephenSpielbergStep,” “Pigstep,” and “Cthulhustep,” the last referring to a bizarre 1928 pulp magazine fictional character he’s into… Anyway, quite tasty. Be sure to tune in to live.deadmau5.com too, he’s pretty fun to watch at work (though let’s not tell him that, lest his head grow too large for those helmets…:)

♬ Deadmau5 – Superliminal
♬ Deadmau5 – Fn Pig

Yet the best came a month ago with the release of “The Veldt,” a collaboration with soft-spoken singer Chris James… beautiful. Around the same time, he officially premiered “Maths,” an original mix more heavy on the electronics than the others in this post, but just as awesome.

★ Deadmau5 (ft. Chris James) – The Veldt
♬ Deadmau5 – Maths (Original Mix) or $

And though the first two pricing tiers sold out verrrry quickly, there are still plenty of tix left to the amaaaaazing-looking Veld Music Festival, taking place in Toronto August 4th & 5th and featuring the big Mau5 himself! This dude is NOT to be missed live. Over and over, I’ll go…

Featured on Tiësto‘s podcast, “Club Life” (#234 on iTunes) for their remix of “Work Hard, Play Hard” (blogged here), 20-year-old Canadians Paris FZ and Simo T have been seriously rockin’ with catchy tunes and driving beats. And the preview to their latest, “Aztec,” shows no signs of stoppin’…

♬ Milkman – Breaking Free (Original Mix)

Producing some crazy good glitch/electro originals and remixes, as well as some of the most original mashups I’ve come across yet (Stacy’s Mom vs. Calling?!?), 23-y.o. Gregg Luskin, aka Milkman, has some sweet tricks up his sleeve. Get excited that the California native is finally hittin’ the road, taking his “Doing Bodies Good” tour with XXXChange to Brunswick ME, Philly, Silver Springs MD, and Boston, before his final stop at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, in Brooklyn on May 19th. So if you didn’t get an EDC ticket…

★ Milkman – Revelry (Original Mix)
♬ Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (Milkman Remix)

“Over a century ago Thomas Edison got the patent for a device which would “do for the eye what the phonograph does for the ear”. He called it the Kinetoscope. He was not only amongst the first to record video, he was also the first person to own the copyright to a motion picture.

“Because of Edison’s patents for the motion pictures it was close to financially impossible to create motion pictures in the North American east coast. The movie studios therefor relocated to California, and founded what we today call Hollywood. The reason was mostly because there was no patent. There was also no copyright to speak of, so the studios could copy old stories and make movies out of them – like Fantasia, one of Disneys biggest hits ever.”

– The Pirate Bay

“So FUCK ACTA, SOPA, PIPA and any bill that wants to give corporations the power to regulate and censor the internet, especially if those same corporations built their empires solely on copyright infringement!”

– Gramatik

Amen. And props to an awesome new EP, #digitalfreedom (available for free, of course!), by the ridiculously-talented Pretty Lights-managed Slovenian producer Gramatik. Choice favorites:

★ Gramatik – Talkbox Intended
♬ Gramatik – Illusion Of Choice

★ Sub Focus – Out the Blue (Ft. Alice Gold)

This song is so good, feeding my recent Drum-n-Bass kick so sweetly… And what a gorgeous vid.
