★ Dash Berlin ft. Kate Walsh – When You Were Around (Album Version)

One of the things on which this blog subsists are the bizarre connections drawn between music of such a wide range of varietals; trap remixes of indie music meld with slow-tempo’d pop makeovers in a seamless juxtaposition formulated from top hits, best searches and suggestions, and (if I may be so presumptuous) a keen eye on the charts. So here Scuba sits, staring out into an incredibly foggy Manhattan abyss, and he can only think, “Today is for trance.”

With ASOT 600: NYC tickets on the verge of sale, it was too fitting to be falling back in love with these light, low-stress beats of ethereal happiness. Dutch master Dash Berlin is a particular favorite, with some beautiful videos to match his painstakingly-perfect studio productions. Fingers crossed he’ll be joining us March 30th for #ASOT600NYC…!

♬ Major Lazer – Jah No Partial (feat. Flux Pavilion) or $

Disregarding my past reservations for Major Lazer, I threw myself into this new one… and loved it! A feeling of part M.I.A., part Skrillex, part I-don’t-know-what, it feels dang good. This, and the recently-dropped Hot Chip reproduction of “Look At Where We Are” (a kinda painfully slow original) with another fave, Junior Blender, and I’m a new convert.

★ 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.

PREMIERE POST: one damn hard summer

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.
