Update (10/27): Tickets are on sale here, though we’re not sure why the link was removed from the official site…

Update (10/26): Via Pacha’s facebook, the official lineup is: Afrojack, R3hab, Shermanology, Quintino & Bobby Burns! Tickets go on sale TOMORROW, Tuesday, at noon on the Jacked NYE site.

Looks like we can add the Jacked crew (think R3hab, Sidney Samson, Shermanology, Quintino…) to our list of New Years Eve parties here in the big apple. In conjunction with the ubiquitous Pacha NYC, they’ll be throwing a party of epic proportions out on Pier 94 this December. More info to come…but in the meantime, get yourself some TRAP-happy Afrojack knockouts!

★ Adele – Skyfall or $

Two days ago, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No (that’s 1962!), MGM and Universal Records unveiled Adele‘s new theme for the latest in the series, Skyfall (track of the same name). Besides being the singer’s first release since prolonged throat issues, Adele’s addition to the quintessential spy series represents the latest in a long line of powerful Bond woman to do more than just look nice. Now among the ranks of Nancy Sinatra and Shirley Bassey, Adele’s disarmingly sensual and luxurious voice falls nothing short of blowing us away…

An equally unanticipated and fortuitous find, Tridium, a Colorado producer, brings us this amazing, dubby retake on Adele’s excellent work. And a quick turn-around for such a perfect combination of gritty and elegance! Also check out his mash of Morgan Page and Hardwell; an oldie but a goodie.

NB: Please welcome miz MCMC to the hard-syncing team!

In early August I spontaneously bought a ticket to Los Angeles and made my way to Hard Summer Music Festival. It ended up being one of my favorites — I was blown away by the production, organization, and every one of the artists. The following songs are more on the jump-up, big-room dance side of the spectrum, but they are all songs that were stuck in my head at one point or another this summer… Some are favorites from California, others were ones for full-blast subway headbanging. Check it out and enjoy!

 
♬ Kill The Noise – Roots (Brillz Remix)
This song would not get out of my head after I heard Dillon Francis open his set with it at Camp Bisco. This remix’s slow start is something different, but leads into a heavy hitting bassline that makes you want to get up and dance.

★ Clockwork – BBBS (Original Mix)
This song’s vocal sample and “big room” sound is infectious. Clockwork is taking the scene by storm, with two new singles released by Mad Decent this summer and a tour with Dillon Francis this fall.

♬ Birdy Nam Nam – Goin’ In (Skrillex Going Down Remix)
The Birdy Nam Nam remixes started leaking at the beginning of the summer before the OWSLA-signed DJ group released their EP, but this one stands out as a favorite… Its slower tempo makes for a unique remix that fits in perfectly in live sets.

★ Zedd – Shave It (501 Remix)
The guitar chord progression in this completely transforms the Zedd original. I’m warning you guys now, This OWSLA signed Finnish producer is about to make a huge splash in the dance music scene.

j’adore toujours

There is a place, in the distance — a place that I’ve been dreaming of. No more time in space, non existant; we can dance like there’s no tomorrow… There is a place…

★ Madeon – The City (Unreleased Cut)

♬ Wax Tailor – Heart Stop (ft. Jennifer Charles) or $

Fave frenchie Jean-Christophe Le Saoût, aka Wax Tailor, first entered my library as an “iTunes Suggested Listening” when, in 2005, he created and produced his first solo album, Tales of the Forgotten Melodies, a nouveau form of lounge music dubbed “orchestral hiphop” that met major success in his home country of France. He produced two more super-cool albums in ’07 and ’09 before deciding to take some time off after a worldwide tour. Well, the date’s finally been set for his next new album, Dusty Rainbow from the Dark, and an EP already out, featuring a remix by another longtime favorite, RJD2! The full album comes out September 10th in Europe, the 18th in the U.S.!

★ Avicii ft. Eric Turner – Dancing In My Head (Tom Hangs Remix) or $

 
This track was a big favorite of mine when it was first heard a few months ago during Avicii’s New Years Eve bash in New York, and finally, I can offer you the full mix, in all its glory. Delicate vocals by Mr. Turner fuse blissfully into the perfectly-ethereal beats powered by the Avicii we’ve come to know and love in this solid house anthem. A+

will you follow me?

★ Deniz Koyu (ft. Wynter Gordon) – Follow You (Original Mix)

The hard-syncing team behind Sync Harder was syncing with all their might over the past weekend at Veld Music Festival in Toronto, Canada. An inaugural EDM fest and the only one of its kind for the area, Veld was an immeasurable success; people, musical talent, amenities — and I’ve promised full reviews of all these festivals, I know, and this one is another to tack onto the “forthcoming” section — but suffice it to say for now that it was incredible, and you should attend next year.

Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/SyncHarder.com!

One act of particular syncing awesomeness, who also happened to be the first act to greet us, was mister Deniz Koyu, yet another incredibly talented Dutchman you might’ve caught (and danced to, all without realizing) at the Cosmic Opera, where he opened the second act with remarkable bootlegs and transitioning-grace before Fedde took the stage and melted our faces. Anyways, it was 2pm in Canada when Koyu came on, hot as hell, and yet I found myself literally cartwheeling onto the mostly-open field. Give him a shot.

★ Kaskade (ft. Rebecca & Fiona) – Turn It Down (Deniz Koyu Remix) or $
♬ James Blunt – Dangerous (Deniz Koyu & Johan Wedel Remix) or $

I almost can’t bear to tear my eyes away long enough to write this post, but y’all should probably tune in to Tomorrowland’s LIVE broadcast of the entire weekend on YouTube, immediately. It’s pretty. damn. cool.
