Albums | Mach’s Top 10 of 2011

Posted by on January 7, 2012

Thou’ Shalt Download These Tracks. The Word of the Lord. Amen.

Narrowing my favorite tracks of the year down to 10 was not easy, considering how much music I like. I would have rather done top 100, but that wouldn’t fit so well here. After spending the past week sifting through my library and narrowing my favorites from 130 to 10, I finally have a top 10 list for 2011 that I like. List counts down from 10 to 1, enjoy.


10. Mord Fustang – Lick The Rainbow : I have been addicted to this track. Blasting it in my car, working out to it, even used it to drown out the sounds of a crying baby…with a smile on my face of course.

9. Sultan & Ned Shepard Ft. Nadia Ali – Call My Name (Spencer & Hill Remix) : Spencer & Hill are a few of my favorite producers of electro and electro-house. I love Nadia Ali’s vocals and how flawless they are on this remix.

8. LYfeSTile – Been A While : This track is a little random for a top 10, but this was my jam of the summer. LYfeSTile verses are catchy as hell and the vibe of the beat says nothing but good times.

7. Her Majesty and The Wolves – Glaciers (Roksonix Remix) : At one point this was my favorite track of the year. Roksonix are one of the best duos in dubstep, this remix reflects that.

6. Martin Solveig – The Night Out : Martin Solveig isn’t even close to being a favorite of mine, but this track is one of the greatest things to touch my eardrums. It is well suited for chill occasions and the dance floor, what more could I ask for. Many of my friends will argue that this should have been in the top 3.

5. MC Xander – Spaceship Earth : Beginning of last March was not a finer moment for FNT with all the technical issues we had. During that time Biglife sent me a video of this dubstep beat-boxer, MC Xander. It was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen, and a sick track at that. Thanks for getting me addicted to this Big.

4.CAZZETTE vs Adele – Set Fire to the Rain (A Stupid Hole Bootleg) : CAZZETTE is on absolute fire right now, dropping one track after another since they finished touring. First time I heard this, I was overwhelmed with emotion for how incredible every second is. A masterpiece.

3. Ali Love – Diminishing Returns (Alvin Risk Remix) : Skrillex is good, but overrated. Alvin Risk is one of the dirtiest producers. This remix is insane, the laser synths sound awesome with Ali Love’s voice. 2012 is going to be Alvin Risk’s year.

2. Cheryl Cole – The Flood (Wideboys Club Mix) : Cheryl Cole has one the best voices, too bad I think most of her original songs suck. The Wideboys saved this song, now I think it’s one the greatest things since sliced bread. Embarrassingly enough, I do in fact have this entire song memorized.

1. Gemini – Blue : Gemini is the most underrated producer in electronic music. Blue never hit the number 1 spot on beatport like predicted, because no one knew who he was. Which means Gemini never gave us his epic remix of Swedish House Mafia’s Miami 2 Ibiza when Blue hit 1. This track sparked an epiphany for me and completely changed the way I view dubstep. Now when people ask me who a great dubstep artist is, I say Gemini before Skrillex, Bassnectar, Nero, and all the other top names.

Progressive House | Nadia Ali – Rapture (Andrew D Bootleg)

Posted by on December 1, 2011

You can’t go wrong with Nadia Ali’s vocals on a track. Andrew D.’s bootleg to this track is one of the top ones I have heard in a while. He is bringing this track back with a some sick synths and chords. The build up in this one is nice with a little dirty dutch feel. Be sure to check out some more of his tracks on his Soundcloud and like his Facebook page.

Dubstep | Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji – Pressure (Zomboy Remix)

Posted by on November 21, 2011

The moment every dubstep lover has been waiting for has arrived. Special thanks to T and his boy from the UK for the hookup. For those of you that don’t know, Zomboy has only been producing and DJing since this past January. He graduated school with a degree in mechanical engineering, he decided one day that instead of helping create the DJ equipment we see now, he was going to use it. One hell of story from one of the genres now biggest players. I don’t think I need to introduce this remix, it’s awesome.

House | Avicii, Laidback Luke, Alex Sayz & Nadia Ali

The original club mix of Penguin leaked a few days ago through a promo cd (as seen above) but I waited to see if the vocal would leak with it as well, but it hasn’t so I couldn’t hold onto this. If you don’t have this song already hurry and download it, but if you already have it and want a better version then don’t wait. Props to my boy T for this.

Laidback Luke makes this dubstep heater even hotter.

The Swedish up and comer Alex Sayz team up with Nadia Ali to make this bomb of a song. I threw in the Alex Lamb remix as well but I am feeling the original more.

If you like good vocals, great piano, and an amazing drop then this song is for you.

Electro, House | ELECTRO HEAT!

Posted by on February 26, 2011

Its been far too long since I’ve posted some “authentic” electro heat bangers. For all of our new followers, this is what we used to call all of our electro posts. Now that we’ve moved to a new system of categorizing things there isn’t much room for this but perhaps I’ll start doing it more often if people dig it. The BIGLIFE edits are filthy fire.

Electro, House | Peet Van Thees, Zedd, Dan Saenz, and More | Electro & House

I have heard countless remixes of Summer Jam and its gotten old, but this one remix was too good to pass on.

DOWNLOAD: The Underdog Project – Summer Jam 2K11 Remix — CRACK!

“Stereo Love” is an amazing track. This remix is very different style to the original hit, but its a BANGER for sure.

DOWNLOAD: Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina – Stereo Love (Dj Nick Sportsmen Remix)

I’ve been diggin’ this beat so much its been on repeat almost the entire day. This is such a great house track.

Everyone loves Skrillex, he has such a unique sound. At first glance of this track I did not think much about it, but it grew on me to the point where it’s FIRE.

You just can’t go wrong with a track with Nadia Ali.

Electro, House | Hardwell, Liam Keegan, Nadia Ali & More | Electro Bangers

Posted by on February 20, 2011

(Note: This post was lost in the transfer so I’m reposting it) Warning this video has absolutely nothing to do with the post aside from being almost as dirty as these tracks. Guys, ever wondered what you look like checking out a girls bum bum? Tune in. I never realized that girls size one another up this much…

These two DJ’s have been pumping out some serious heaters as of late. This Hardwell January release is no exception and neither is Keegan’s take on Gaga’s new track “Born This Way” so give them an ear if you’re looking for a new electro party track.

If Nadia Ali doesn’t ring a bell, it’s time to get familiar. She’s Avicci’s version of Kaskade’s Haley… sort of… Maybe it’d be better to describe her as the Canadian version of Haley. At any rate, she serves as the perfect ingredient for any progressive track sporting vocals.
