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…

★ Taylor Swift – Safe & Sound (Yashar Gasanov Dubstep Remix)

Gotta hand it to T-Swift and 23-y.o. Belarusian Yashar Gasanov, who dubbed over her track “Safe & Sound” about a year ago, but never really got the recognition he sincerely deserves! Especially with this magical video of fiery orchids…wow.

SyncBackSunday

Three Sundays later, and we have the return of our column. Apologies for the delay, but two things: one, my excuse is pretty good (yea, I blame Ultra), and two, this week’s edition is awesome. I called it the We-Missed-You edition for two reasons. One, duh, I missed y’all. Two, it features a few of my favorite songs by artists we all know and love — but haven’t heard them perform in their sets in years.

My first solo foray into the EDM world, I paid my buddy $10 and saw Avicii perform an intimate set at Pacha, and when he played this first song, I nearly cried of happiness, all hyped up, alone in my own Avicii-bubble. Years later, the feeling still returns. Then there’s Jacques Lu Cont, or the Thin White Duke, who somehow kept us in our seats, jumping with this Killers track in Madison Square Garden last year when the Swedish House Mafia — now dissolved — headlined the first electronic show there. Sit back, close your eyes, and know you’re in good hands… It’s time for #SyncBackSunday.

★ Armin Van Buuren feat. Laura V – Drowning (Avicii Mix)
♬ Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (Clock Opera
Remix)
♬ Ellie Goulding – Guns and Horses (JAQUES Jezzy Remix)
★ The Killers – Mr. Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont’s Thin White
Duke Mix)
♬ Imogen Heap – Hide & Seek (Tiësto’s In Search Of Sunrise
Remix)

PS, #hotblowncandy

long live the PUNK!

13-03-27 random access memories daft punkYou can’t even imagine my look of surprise upon exiting the Ultra Festival grounds following Day 1 this past weekend to solemn, darkly-dressed greeters wordlessly dispersing masks with the Daft Punk album art. With a giant projection of the same animation as used during the SNL advert played on repeat against the building facing the festival exit, the French Punk duo continued to tease its biggest fans as they trudged home throughout the rest of the weekend; Nile Rodgers, their producer, was spotted backstage day two, and the Daft-men themselves were even spotted watching on as the Swedish House Mafia waved their epic goodbye. Would they surprise everyone with a short performance?! Or a new song, from their first album in seven years?!

Well, no, as it turned out. But the guys did officially announce that “Random Access Memories” would be released May 21, posting 13 unnamed tracks for $11.99 to pre-order on iTunes! In the meantime, enjoy some of my favorite Daft Punk classics, as mixed by Panic City, HLM, Xristo, and TheFatRat, and GET EXCITED !!

★ Daft Punk – Digital Love (Panic City Remix)
♬ TheFatRat vs. Daft Punk – Do Harder Be Faster (TheFatRat’s Skinny Dip Mashup)
★ Daft Punk – Something About Us (Xristo Remix)
★ Bingo Players vs. Daft Punk – Rattlogic (NYMZ & BINGO)
♬ Daft Punk – Make Love (HLM Remix)

13-03-03 chainsmokers sleeps alone

Update (3/4): The Chainsmokers will be playing Lavo NY this Thursday night!

Can’t get enough of NYC duo The Chainsmokers, who recently released their revamp of Two Door Cinema Club’s “Sleep Alone”, a beautiful progressive mix featuring great dynamics, a powerful new beat, and some awesome use of a great band’s vocals. This being already their fourth hit release of 2013, The Chainsmokers continue to light up the airwaves with their feel-good, progressive-house fire.

★ Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone (Chainsmokers Remix)

And an (awesome) throwback:

★ Dragonette – Let It Go (Chainsmokers Filter No. 2)

♬ Avicii – ID (Collaborative Mix)
remix ♬ Avicii & Project 46 ft. Daphne – Crime (Original Mix)

At the beginning of last month, goldenboy superproducer Avicii announced a project in which he’d review submissions for melodies, basslines, beats, rhythms, breaks and effects to create one internationally-collaborative track. Reminiscent of the days of The Postal Service (who are, by the way, back on tour…?!), mailing recordings of vocals and effects crosscountry back in 2003 to create hits like “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight”, Avicii x You.com received nearly 13,000 submissions from 4000+ artists in 140 countries. What resulted is a happy, light, bouncy house tune that one will be sure to hear in Avicii sets. Melody, kian sang; bassline, DJ Naxsy; beat/rhythm, Martin Kupilas; break, ВАНЯ ХАКСИ; and effects, Jonathan Madray, Mateusz Kolata, and Christian Westphalen.

 

♬ Avicii ft. Negin – Three Million (Your Love Is So Amazing)

Avicii also recently celebrated 3 million likes on Facebook by releasing a new mix of “Your Love is So Amazing”. His video productions have been top-notch lately, so I thought I’d include it.

nothing changed at all

13-02-13 kat krazy

With just a year’s experience under his belt, U.K. DJ Kat Krazy has already produced his first single, and it’s rocketing up the Beatport charts. After huge success with unofficial remixes of Foster the People, Coldplay (“Hurts Like Heaven”), and Bastille (below), the Kat was officially commissioned by Coldplay to remix their single featuring Rihanna, “Princess of China” — to equally fantastic reception. Get ready for this guy, 2013…

♬ Kat Krazy – See the Sun (Big Time) feat. Susie Ledge (Original Mix)
★ Bastille – Pompeii (Kat Krazy Remix)
★ Olly Murs – Army of Two (Kat Krazy Remix)

13-02-09 frosty

Holy Moses did it snow. Currently am stuck in Connecticut due to suspended train service, stomping the yard listening to the pop-iest of house tunes to keep m’blood moving. First up, a glorious remix of Sigùr Ros-doppelganger Jónsi by NYC producers The Chainsmokers, followed by a new collaboration between favorites Project 46 and the legendary Paul Oakenfold. Keep warm!

★ Jónsi – Around Us (The Chainsmokers Remix)
