Chill, Electronic | DAILON – Trips (Ion The Prize Flip)

Posted by on January 28, 2014

Ion The Prize, from California, has put out a trippy remix of Dailon’s “Trips” for us today. He gave the song more of an upbeat feel than the original track, and made it sound a bit more complex. You can still hear the chord progression from the mellow original, but with new drum work and vocal samples. His take on the track lends way to a higher pitched melody and quicker tempo as well. The ambient piano section at the end is very pretty. Grab this one for free right off Soundcloud!

Patrick Hagenaar is starting to become my favorite remixer in the game, and this remix of Route 94’s “My Love” featuring Jess Glynee makes me wish the volume on my computer was higher so I can blast it and disconnect from the world. Uplifting, fun, and a whole bunch of awesome is what this remix is. If you’re feeling blue, take a dose of this track, good vibes guaranteed! Looks like we’ll have to wait till Virgin Records releases the remix to download it, for now we’ll have to settle for SoundCloud. This is a must listen!

Dubstep, Trance | Röyksopp – Running To The Sea Ft. Susanne Sundfør (Seven Lions Remix)

Posted by on December 2, 2013

It has taken a long time for me to gather enough nerve to write this review, because this piece of music intimidates me so much. I don’t know how to accurately convey the way that this song made me feel when I heard it for the first time. I was on a crowded city bus, but felt completely alone. I didn’t feel lonely, rather, I felt as if I had been transported away by the music, and was in a different place than the people around me. I moved to the music without regard for the perceptions or judgments of strangers in my vicinity, and it felt surreal. 



Chill, Trap | Oisima – Everything About Her (Ta-ku Remix)

Posted by on August 23, 2013

Ta-Ku always makes the sweetest remixes. Ta-Ku’s remix of Oisima’s “Everything About Her” is pretty unique. It’s mellow, but the higher pitched sounds keep the listener awake. Annabel Weston’s vocals on the track are beautiful and flow nicely over the fresh beats from Ta-Ku. The chill vibes are plentiful, and it’s free to download!

Progressive House | Lift Off #012

Posted by on June 6, 2013

Aside from how to fit a whole banana in my mouth, there are only two things I know. One being there has been some quality releases lately and two being they haven’t been posted. I won’t blame anybody W8 but I figured that this moment is what Lift Off was made for. There is a backlog of tracks that, if they were girls, would be known for their great personalities. That is the philosophy behind Lift Off. It only made sense to revive this series for at least one more instalment. We start off above with a modern rendition of a song that came out when I was just the sexy young age of seven. “By The Way” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers gets brought into 2013.

I wasn’t involved in a long and amazing relationship with this next song but it sure feels like I was. The way it just tears at my heart makes me feel like we’re going through a devastating break up. Whether that’s the impact the lyrics are having on me or I’m just making it up I do not know. What I do know is that I was an open canvas ready to be painted on and this track painted a masterpiece across my naked body.

Yes, the reality of rampant transexuals currently populating Brazil does worry me a bit. They look alright at first glance but by the time you find out it’s just too late. Might as well go through with it at that point. These are issues that Brazil’s Lucas Bojakowski hopefully doesn’t have to face and if he does, we won’t judge him for doing it. He has recently remixed Dirty South’s “Your Heart” beautifully and is giving it away for free.

Not including my parents, I have like 5 friends. Of those 5, about half are girls I don’t actually know but who’s Instagram’s I may have accidentally memorized and occasionally check when it’s time. Jk I don’t do that. That’s creepy. I hold myself to a higher standard than that. It may be okay for other people, mainly Avicii, to make subpar decisions regarding what to play at Ultra and memorizing Instagram’s, but not me. TOER is a name that nobody memorizes because nobody knows who he is. Though if he keeps putting out huge, big room originals like “Knight Lights”, that may change.


Electro-House, Trance | W&W – Thunder (Preview)

Posted by on May 6, 2013

W&W MSGThe world was still trying to come back to earth after “Lift Off“, when W&W in association with Ummet Ozcan unleashed “The Code” on the world, sparking mainstages and clubs afire. “The Code” is still heavily in circulation, but that has not stopped W&W from keeping up their nearly vertical assent to the top of the dance music world with another production destined to take them there, “Thunder“. The aptly named “Thunder” continues their recent run of high energy, booming tracks that propel their stardom higher with each passing day. Look for this on May 20th.

Electro | Phoenix — Trying To Be Cool (One Love Mix)

Posted by on April 29, 2013


Last week one of my favorite bands, Phoenix, dropped their long-anticipated new album, Bankrupt! — their most recent project in almost four years. Needless to say, anything they release has been very meticulously crafted and revised, and unlike most artists’ work that I get sent these days, there weren’t any songs which I imagined could be improved or made better than they already were. Thus, when One Love sent me his remix to a favorite of the album that we shared, “Trying To Be Cool”, I was skeptical. Not only am I not generally a huge fan of remixes, but this was Phoenix. The changes here are relatively subtle, but One Love has a tremendous ear for melody, and manages to really enliven the track’s feel into more of a dance hit without losing its foundational strengths. For those looking for some higher quality music for their parties, this edit is a wonderful link between Phoenix’s terrific sound and One Love’s energetic production. Enjoy!
