★ 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… :)

13-07-17 sound remedy

Though truthfully I can’t pronounce the name of it, Sound Remedy‘s latest masterpiece to be released via SoundCloud is his best yet. The L.A. deej has always had a crazy talent for electro music, but this is his best yet. After the insanely beautiful, sweeping, trance-like opener of the synths and strings we’ve come to love him for, he plunges straight downward into the hellish sexy-dirty depths of trap around the 2-minute mark. Then, after the dirty beats end 30 seconds later and the melody reblooms, he takes it to the territory where he truly outshines the competition – dub. The swirling synths and booming harmonies all converge at 3’17” to create the most endorphin-releasing next minute and a half of your life.

Yes, you could say I enjoyed this one.

★ Sound Remedy – Chiaroscuro

PS He wrote the “I love you” in the comments, not I. Cherry on top.

PPS His website is awesome.

13-07-08 arty grand finale

Back with his first original since Together We Are, our favorite rooskie producer Artyem is on fire again with his big room sound. If he’s starting with the ‘finale’, we can only imagine what’s to follow…

★ Arty feat. Fiora – Grand Finale (Original Mix)

★ 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…!

♬ Pretty Lights – Around the Block

One of my favorite festival mainstays, Pretty Lights, has a kickass new record coming out just in time for July, “A Color Map of the Sun” (stream it FREE here!). Silky smooth like all the ones before it, this album adds a new dimension through the use of old-timey instruments Derek spent months traveling many miles to dig up. Tickets for the official launch party at the new underground club Output in Brooklyn go on sale at NOON TODAY, and are capped at only 800 people so act fast! Otherwise, you can catch pretty lights at Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, and a number of other amazing festivals across the U.S.

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 :)

♬ Tom Odell – Can’t Pretend or $

With Shazam and similar music-identifying apps all the rage now, any TV producer will agree a key element to a successful show is its music selection. So I cheer on one of my favorites, “The Newsroom”, with the addition of this indie song from overseas by Brit Tom Odell, only 22 years old and already a winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, earlier this year.

♬ Daft Punk – Contact

The mashups, tributes, and remixes of Daft Punk‘s just-released album, “Random Access Memories” (on iTunes now!), arrive unabated and in such quick succession it’s impossible to keep up with them. Here are just a few of my favorites, starting with the bizarrely-perfect merger of 2001: A Space Odyssey with the track “Contact”, above. With this latest success, Daft Punk prove their timelessness and universality one. more. time.

★ Daft Punk – Doin’ It Right (Unlike Pluto Remix)
♬ Daft Punk – Random Access Memories (Vanderway Edit)
♬ Daft Punk – Lose Yourself to Dance ft. Pharrell Williams (Yashar Gasanov Dubstep Remix)

PS, did I mention Daft Punk has officially announced they will be remixing the entire album themselves? Oh giggity…

Earlier in the week, when the sun was still out and the humidity so thick you could barely breathe, it was all I could do not to quit my job, pack my things, and shack up on the beach. Though the temperatures have (again) dropped since, this mix still brings those first warm feelings for anticipation of summertime fun…
