A little late on this track, but it is too good not to post. The amount of times I’ve listened to this song in the last week is almost embarrassing. Hardsoul & Dirty Freek have produced an absolute jam and its called “Just Another Face”. Our boy Pete Tong played it about 2 months ago, but I hadn’t come across it until now. But hey… good music is good music, rather be late than never. I’m not gonna say much more and let the track do the talking.

PS. Don’t feel ashamed to replay this one countless times, I did the same thing

Events, Preview | Flosstradamus & Alex Young @ The Warfield, 12/20/13 (UPDATE: SOLD OUT)

Posted by on December 14, 2013


If you’re out in the bay for the holiday season, then you need to find yourself a ticket to Flosstradamus’ performance at the Warfield on 12/20. Of course, these guys are some of the OG trap artists who really helped the electronic sub-genre take flight, and if you don’t live under a rock, they probably don’t need much of an introduction; however, one of their opening acts for the evening who I do think deserves a little more love (though he has been getting some serious props recently from major players across the industry) is Alex Young. If you haven’t already heard of him, here’s why you should get excited about his set next Friday:


Alex is definitely a unique artist in the game right now. At just 16, this kid’s already played for thousands of people at multi-day festival events, and he’s not even out of high school yet. With a youthful perspective backing him up, his sound embodies a versatile dynamic that has the power to make you get on your feet and go crazy, or just mug it in your car while you throw your seat back, one hand on the wheel; even though he won’t be – he just started driving. There’s clearly a lot of energy coming for this guy, and if you can, you’re going to want to try and catch some of it in San Francisco. If you haven’t already, check out his latest track “SWTRWTHR” that premiered a couple weeks ago with a free download. Don’t forget to snag a ticket from stubhub or elsewhere – it’s sold out! Come get based with us.

PS – stay on the lookout for an exclusive FNT interview with Alex, coming soon!

Electro | Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up (Steve Swift Remix)

The homie Steve Swift, with his first FNT post, put the electro back into Avicii’s hit record “Wake Me Up” and even included hints of dreamy trance, that had me wondering for a second if Robert Miles was behind this. The track starts off with a hard bass that makes you want to rage, and then it’s off to euphoria with a bright piano chord progression. If you’re trying to get the chills, listen to around 2:16, the build reminds me of that good trance from back in the days. This is a must listen and a must download! PS, if you’re in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area, make sure you tune in to DJ Steve Swift every Sunday 9PM – 10PM on iHeartRadio and 104.5 WSNX!

Electro | Tiesto – Work Hard, Play Hard (FiveNorth Remix)

Posted by on September 14, 2011

Tired of listening to Work Hard, Play Hard remixes yet? Cool, me neither. Five North completely redoes the beat on his remix yet seems to leave the perfect amount of the original sounds intact. Lend this one an ear, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

PS BIGLIFE is giving away free tickets to Tiesto with wreckless abandon via facebook and twitter, so make sure you are following over the next few days.

Dubstep | Jason Derulo – Dont Wana Go Home (DubRocca Remix)

Posted by on July 17, 2011

Unfortunately, you probably wont encounter Dubrocca tracks in the club, but you definitely should. Why? Well because he finds the ideal balance between the original (top 40) vibe and dubstep womps. Consequently, your ears are caught with a familiar sound but are intrigued by the new flavor at the same time. This Jason Derulo remix is a prime example of this equilibrium point. Follow him on Soundcloud. (PS. I’m buried right meow)
