There are times as a blogger that you over-think songs. You wonder, “Is this completely new and unique?”, “Is this guy using a ghost producer?”, “Have I heard that somewhere?” and you run circles around yourself and forget to listen to your heart and your gut. Yes it is our job to weed out the repetitive, copycat garbage that may try and play and on your emotions, but at times you forget to feel for where the pure, raw emotion of the track is gripping you. I almost over thought the emotional simplicity of the now platinum record “Long Time” from John de Sohn and I am happy I did not. This track from Baggi Begovic evokes an emotional, uplifting melody with soothing male vocals that brings a full bodied big room track to the forefront heading into the summer. This song is one of the selections for Tiesto’s Club Life Volume 3 Stockholm set for release June 18th — the tracklist you can see after the jump.

The world needs this album right now. Sometimes in this fast paced mile-a-minute world you just need to sit back, close your eyes and relax, and this is the album for that. The 25 year old American producer has developed a reputation for composing genre defying music that spans many styles and sounds. His 2011 album, “It’s Artificial” propelled his solo career forward with its wide variety of styles, from glitch-hop to silky smooth techno to eclectic electronica and progressive, creating a very cerebral experience.
Fast forward to 2013, Andrew Bayer has become a well established member of the Anjunabeats, producing with Above & Beyond on their album “Group Therapy”, being a part of Group Therapy stages everywhere from Tomorrowland to EDC Las Vegas and Electric Zoo, and joining Above & Beyond on tour all over the world. He has established himself with a growing single discography that includes the recently released “England” on Anjunabeats. “If It We’re You, We’d Never Leave” is the progression of Andrew Bayer as an artist from his more days with the Signalrunners, making traditional trance music, to a now more ambient, orchestral, album oriented sound that has a timeless quality seen in very few full length electronic pieces today.

One of my favorite up-and-coming artists, Bass Physics, is back with a massive album release. This duo has been releasing great funky-electro that I’ve been in love with for the past few months. This new album is on a completely new level and features 11 great tracks. What I like most about these guys is their ability to crush live performances. Bass Physics doesn’t only DJ, they also shred on live instruments which is quickly separating them from other DJs. After being booked at top venues all over Colorado, I’m sure Bass Physics is going to have a huge summer so get ready to Lose Your Mind!

Seattle has one of the hottest hip-hop scenes in the country. All of the sounds that come from there are unique, and the various artists featured on Sam Lachow’s Young Seattle are no different. The video itself is cool, and is filmed almost like a cypher. My favorite verse is probably the second, as Gift Uh Gab absolutely kills it. The verse by Sam’s partner in crime, Raz Simone, is also a work of beauty. Even though there are so many different types of rap featured in this video, it’s good to see that they can all mesh and all support each other. Check out the video above and download the track for free here.

With the full court press being put on by Columbia hyping up this album all over the web and all over the world, putting up posters and slowly releasing small bits of relatively inconsequential information about Daft Punk’s 4th artist album, we can finally say we are the stretch run of the release. The album “Random Access Memories” will be released on May 21st and lets pray there are not any last minute delays. There are no names for any of the 13 songs, but you have the lengths of each of the tracks. You can pre-order the album on iTunes and until then listen to the 15 second clip from the SNL commercial below or listen to it in a 10 hour loop.

With only two more stops remaining on his UpToNoGoodTour, Huey Mack takes a break in NY to record an all new remix of Krewella’s “Alive” with Mike Stud. They let this one go early since the video for Huey’s first single off his upcoming project, Dirty Laundry wasn’t ready yet. That video is set to drop next week so until then spin this!
