13-09-11 kaskade handsome

We saw airy vocals and heavenly melodies in his last album, “Fire & Ice”, but Kaskade‘s latest album, “Atmosphere” (iTunes), has a much darker feel almost resemblant of the latest fad-genre, deep house. With three tracks labeled simply after airport terminals (“MIA to LAS” is a favorite), and only half with vocals, it’s clear Kaskade wants to be separated from his established position in house music. Yet…I hold onto my favorite discotheque-Kaskade days and proclaim my favorite to be this speedy, upbeat track. Either way, buy this albummmm

★ Kaskade – Feeling The Night (Feat. Becky Jean Williams) or $

One little raver-rant though, after the break (if you care)…

I felt in the air, I swear. That foreboding silence of an oncoming major record… Avicii’s “True”.

★ Avicii – Heart Upon My Sleeve (feat. Dan Reynolds)

Not due ’til September 13th, the album leaked almost a month early, and can be listened to in its entirety on YouTube. The album stays the course of Avicii’s latest country twang, but brings back that familiar happy, dance-party sound we all first fell for… All in all: damn good. Available for pre-order on iTunes here.

13-08-11 verve first ladies

There’s no other way to say it: this album is insanely good. When Verve Records isn’t busy producing jazz albums by some of the greatest musicians in history, they shuffle through the EDM pileup to produce “Verve Remixed” — compilation albums of their famous classics reinterpreted by the world’s best DJs — always to fantastic results. I purchased (yes, purchased) their box set of Volumes 1-4 (iTunes) but this latest collection, “The First Ladies” (iTunes), tops the rest. Ella Fitz remixed by Maya Jane Coles? Dinah Washington meets DJ Carnage??? Nina Simone vs. Zed’s Dead?!?! Unreal. Check out my favorite track, remixed by the on-fire Flume, below, then go spend $10 and gift yourself the greatest week of music you’ve had in a while.

★ Marlena Shaw – Woman Of The Ghetto (Flume’s Jackin’ House
Mix)

★ Ellie Goulding – Burn

Cute lil’ Brit popper Ellie Goulding (probably known best for dating Skrillex, if you’re on this site) recently released her first 2013 single, “Burn”, along with an adorably fun video that just adds to those tingly feelings… :)

★ Cazzette – Beam Me Up

I love a good mockumentary, so when I finally saw the music video to this infectious house tune from Avicii prodigies Cazzette, it was love at first sight. Add in some humorous social commentary on the EDM scene and its outside perception, and you’ve got my approval…!

I will absolutely be the first one to admit: I made a mistake. I barely gave this song a 5-second listen before giving it the cold shoulder when I first heard it at Ultra Miami earlier this year. But now that it’s been rehashed in the studio — most noticeably, with a strengthened bass and sped-up melody — I haven’t stopped listening to it since it’s premiere on Pete Tong’s radio show last Friday. And finally, we have a version worth releasing…

★ Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up

TGFA… Thank God For Avicii :)
