Electro-House, FYI | Troll of the Week: Maverix – Everyone Is Having Sex

Posted by on December 23, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you our troll of the week: Maverix. Following the likes of Daleri with their “Epic Mashleg,” and of course, the troll king, Deadmau5’s  indictment of big league dance music with “Drop Da Bomb,” our boy Maverix here took it to a whole new level by charting the Top 10 in Electro House on Beatport, currently reigning at #9. Yeah, he surfaced on one of the biggest genre charts in the market, and I’m pretty sure he’s f***ing with all of us (at least I hope he is).

Let’s take a look at the lyrics: “Everyone is having sex/If you’re not you’re too complex/Everyone is having sex/If you’re not, booty call text.” Normally something like this would leave me relatively unfazed, maybe a giggle at most, but the fact that this track has broken through the the ranks of the Electro House Top 100 and into the Top 10 has left me in awe of this guy’s trolling capabilities: it’s safe to say I’m impressed; and I’m not going to lie – I kind of want to dance to this song. Hats off to you, Maverix – well done.

If you want, go hit up Beatport. This track can be all yours for just $2.49 – throw this thing up to #1.

Posted by on December 18, 2013

Milk N Cookies - Mastodon (Louis The Child Remix)The young duo, Louis The Child, most recently featured as #11 on Dubstep.net’s “Top 14 Artists Primed For A Break Out Year”, also just released their debut EP this month “Dimensions”. “Dimensions” has become a huge success, especially with their lead track “Ember”. Today they give away their Electro-House remix to Milk N Cookies’ “Mastodon”, and it is nothing short of one of the most vibing dance tunes. This is definitely a feel great and dance all night sort of remix.

Prime is back with his follow up single “Lets Get Wasted,” an Electro-House record that wants you to get wasted with your friends. Expect a massive angry saw bass synth and and a tag line vocal “Let’s Get Wasted” that leads into the drop. This is the kind of tune you get wasted to at the club. and all of sudden things get blurry, but you can somehow keep your ears on the synth, making for that euphoric feeling. This is a must listen and support by purchasing the track on Beatport!

DO SOMETHING

Electro-House | Lars Allertz – Make You Mine

Posted by on November 5, 2013

Presenting you another guest post from our Swedish sweetheart, Rebecca

”Everyone can do what I do,” said Avicii in an interview with the Swedish men’s magainze Café, which the publication happened to showcase on the cover of last month’s issue. The outspoken young man has had a lot to say about the industry lately; of course everyone else apart from the artistic genius himself are in the business only for making money. Touring Vegas, having an abnormal obsession with including Ralph Lauren in all aspects of your career, and attacking the States with an album of American country sounds is all about being freely creative, right? But for once, this Avicii quote actually makes sense.

Like some ”guru of EDM,” Avicii has doomed the future of EDM (perhaps because he realized what his own front page quote really means…) and especially progressive and electro house. I am just waiting for Avicii to go full folklore. There must be money to make from the Amish music scene!

His prophecy may come to light but not before a certain newcomer’s career fully blossoms. Introducing someone else who does it, and does it more than well: Lars Allertz. The upcoming, new Avicii-before-he-became-whatever-he-is-now, is making his way through the DJ-booths in Sweden and London. The Stockholm-based 21-year-old just released the song that has every quality to be his big breakthrough. Already last year he was recognized for his early works by DJs such as Tiesto, but has yet to reach the audience. ”Make you mine” has it. Pay attention to the finely-tuned vocals and the Latino strings that put Allertz’s own mark to the, according to a specific DJ’s general opinions (no names mentioned…), “soulless electro house beat” (that means to general ears: a well-created melody with a powerful drop). Left your own territory because you’re frightened of the competition, Tim?

As in typical Swedish fashion, the full version of “Make You Mine” is available on Spotify but check out the preview below and purchase the track via iTunes if it makes you feel that type of way.

Electro-House | Dirtyloud Ft. Sirreal – Needle (FTampa Remix)

Posted by on November 1, 2013

Dirtyloud Ft. Sirreal - Needle (FTampa Remix)FTampa is one of those artists I feel has never gotten the amount of love he deserves. He dropped this raver’s fantasy today as a little thank you to the fans he has had and the support they have given over the years. I have had a little trouble listening to House and Electro-House lately due to how the festival scene has forced upon artists repetitiveness in production. Since my first days with FNT up to today, FTampa has never disappointed me with a track. This remix is no exception to that either, enjoy.

Events | Five Things We Can’t Wait For At Electric Zoo 2013

Posted by on August 8, 2013

Summer is flying by, which is bittersweet on one hand but totally amazing on the other. Why? Because it means that we’re getting closer and closer to Electric Zoo’s blowout fifth year. If you’re not up on your EZoo life, check out our official recap video from last year and see what you missed. Yeah — it was pretty killer. Fortunately, this year is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever for many reasons, not least of which are:

1) Two mainstages (count ’em, TWO) and an expanded festival site on Randall’s Island. More on that later.

2) A new 18 and up policy. Sorry, youths (#YOUTHS) of the world — I’m too old for your shenanigans and look forward to mingling with an older and wiser crowd. *Wheezes; testily gestures for you to GET OFF MY LAWN.*

3) A totally killer lineup — which is par for the course by EZoo’s standards. There’s lots to be excited about here, but we’ve come up with five things that we’re especially stoked for. Check ’em out after the jump.

Electro-House | Ak9 – Ye (Cormak Remix)

Posted by on July 12, 2013

ak9 - Ye (Cormak Remix)Holy hell, these are the tracks I like to have on a Friday. Cormak is pushing to break 100 likes on Facebook right now and just drop this banging Electro-House remix. The intro has a calm progressive feel to it, but don’t let that tell you what the rest of the song will sound like. The drop is full of so much energy all you can think to do is rage to the bass. Show Cormak some love for this incredible tune.
