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.


Bootleg, Electro-House, Mashups | Nicky Romero vs. Green Velvet. vs. Cosmic Gate – Analog Flash (Omnia Mashup)

Posted by on February 4, 2013

green velvet flash

A nice Monday afternoon freebie from Omnia, who has mashed up Nicky Romero’s famed remix of Green Velvet’s “Flash” with Cosmic Gate’s 2007 tech-trance classic “Analog Feel.” The kicky bassline, dark melody, and off-beat hi-hats on “Analog Feel” are a perfect counterpoint to Nicky Romero’s minimal but hard-hitting reboot of “Flash.”

It also (sort of) bears mention that I tweeted “camera’s ready, prepare to flash” for no discernible reason this morning (wasn’t even listening to the song), and now this is here. Weird. It’s like I have ESPN or something.

Mashups | Middy’s Mashups

Ok so some of these are technically bootlegs, but Middy’s bootlegs does not sound nearly as good as Middy’s mashups. I am in that picture somewhere in the front right. It was taken by Chuckie after his set and this is a bootleg he made for Identity.

Here is a mashup from Romain G, who mashes the popular Nicky Romero remix of Flash by Green Velvet with Flashback and Awooga from Calvin Harris and Axwell’s remix of In the Air.

This is the latest mashup from Kaskade and this is one of his best. It probably deserves its own post but this post needs to be amazing. The mashup takes Don’t Stop Dancing and adds Kissing from Alex Gaudino, which gives the beat that little extra that may have been missing in the original.

This is a bootleg of the classic A-Trak remix of Heads Will Roll and Zero 76. The transitions are great and has been supported by many DJs including Tiesto and Martin Solvieg.

I’ll let the beats speak for themselves. Start at 2:22. 4/5
