★ Stromae – Formidable

Francophile or not, this video and song are so powerful you can’t help but empathize. As iTunes’ #1 French popstar Stromae sings of a love (and by default, himself) lost, the beat syncs in and a twisted story of strings and loss plays out.

Now, for the true Frenchies out there…

★ Parov Stelar – Catgroove

While we all grieve amidst the news of Roseland’s shuttering, I thought it only proper to pay respect to its original days in 1919 as a swing club, by presenting a recent favorite Austrian DJ who takes fun, bouncy swing and adds an extra dance-music kick. Parov Stelar performs with a band during his live shows, to create individually beautiful performances that mimic two other favorite performers, Wax Tailor and Gramatik.

Super cool new denim ad from G-Star Raw featuring a much more subtle Skrillex than we’re used to. I like this…

Robert Frost is a great American poet, known for artistically depicting life in New England. His work won him a Pulitzer Prize, but his personal life was filled with grief and loss. Frost wrote “Choose Something Like a Star” in 1943. The main themes of the poem include a perspective on humanity’s need for reassurance and isolation of individuals. The poem is written in iambic tetrameter and is often compared to “Bright Star” by John Keats.

Tim Deluxe = Timothy Andrew Liken, a UK-based DJ and producer. You might remember Mr. Deluxe from “It Just Won’t Do”; but I prefer “We All Love Sax” and “Let the Beats Roll”.

♬ Tim Deluxe – Choose Something Like A Star (Poem by Robert Frost)

The original mix of “Choose Something Like a Star” comes from the album, “The Little Ginger Club Kid”, published in 2004. Of course there are other versions, but this is the one I like best. It is one of those songs good for everything; relaxing, partying, exercising, blunt ride, kissing, et

★ 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… :)

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 :)

♬ Blackmill – Evil Beauty

Stumbled upon this beautiful time lapse video accompanying the melodic dubstep of British wunderkind Robert Card, aka Blackmill. Can never get enough of this kinda stuff. You might remember his remix of Ellie Goulding’s cover of “Your Song”? Pretty awesome. One more longtime favorite:

12-12-24 christmas minimix new

 
If you know me, you know I’m bad at keeping track of dates; holidays and birthdays are constantly slipping past me. But I think that’s why Christmas and the winter holidays are the only ones I’ve ever bound to. Every year, I have a month dedicated to throwing around as much light and warmth as possible, and in reward, I get at least a week off work to spend with family and friends. How could I not look forward to this? Naturally, I’ve built up quite the holiday playlist. Here are a few of my all-time favorites. Happy Holidays everyone :)
